Current Mood: sick
If it was swine flu, it passed pretty easily. I came down with some kind of weird fever and achiness over the weekend that left me without the energy to do much of anything. From what I hear, a lot of folks have been battling sore throats, so knock on wood that I didn’t have that to deal with. Tonight, it’s down to just a headache, so I’m hoping to be right as rain tomorrow. Unrelated (I think), it occurs to me that I’ve been to the doctor more in the last year than in the previous five. Honestly. I think that’s partly me getting old and partly me getting paranoid.
I really just wanted to mention that the flyer is finally done for TCB’s celebration of Morrissey’s 50th birthday… a week from Friday! This is a huge headlining gig at Slim’s, and we’ll be joined by Dead Souls (awesome Joy Division tribute) and Love Vigilantes (a New Order tribute coming all the way from Seattle). I expect this show to be way better than our Slim’s show last year… for many reasons. Not the least of which that it’s Mozzer’s semicentennial birthday! Hope you guys can make it out!
Alright, bitches. Finally… proof positive regarding the existence of Peanut Butter Boppers. My previous evidence consisted of their brief appearance in grampa’s fridge in The Lost Boys. But now RetroJunk has posted the commercial. Tell me someone else remembers these things? Delish! And if that weren’t enough, the Mother’s website is back up, and it indicates that Mother’s Cookies should be back on shelves any day now. A glimmer of hope in these dark times. But alas, I’d be sick(er) if I tried to eat any of that stuff right now. Maybe tomorrow. Meh. I’m off to go rest. Nighty night…
