All Miguel, All the Time 

Bad news for you "Overheard in New York" fans, bad news! This web site was founded by an Ayn Rand-loving former Cato intern! I learned this by reading this book. See what you miss when you don't read comics?

E.S. You should really see the movie "American Splendor" unless you are a total poindexter.

Please believe me: this frog can sing 

The Producers remains my favorite musical. When reviews came out panning the film version, I couldn't believe it was as bad as they said: the musical was so awesome. Unfortunately, however, the movie is pretty bad. Some things don't translate well.

So if you see this stinker, please don't imagine that the award-winning stage production is represented by this.

A Bunch of Soup Cans 

So, just so google doesn't burn down this ghost town, I am blogging. But I will only lyrics from songs as they come up on iTunes.

-In the grey of the morning/my mind becomes confused/ between the dead and the sleeping/ and the road that I must choose.

-multitudes are marching/to the big kettle drum/voices callin' voices cryin'/some are born and some are dyin'/ it's Alpha and Omega's kingdom come

-so keep it up/quench my desire/and I will be at your side/forever more

-and when you see the bruises on my legs from kickin' pills/yeah, then you see how recklessly the pages I fill/fake headlines, believe them, come back

-Hey little bird/fly away home/ house's on fire, your children are alone

-I seen a/ old man have a heart attack in Manhattan/when he died well, we just stood there looking at him/ain't he cute?/I don't care about you/fuck you!

-Ray Pearlman/you owe us $13,000/it would be very nice of you/to pay us soon

-and he calls up/the insects he commands/and the water bugs/attack the policeman

-this boy's life among the electrical lights/this boy's life among the electrical lights/this boy's life among

-New York's alright if you like drunks in your doorway/New York's alright if you wanna freeze to death/ New York's alright if you wanna get mugged or murdered/New York's alright if you like saxophones

Blog Blog Blog: heavy is the head edition 

Being endowed, Ron Jeremy like, with native hilarity is not all it's cracked up to be. Sure who wouldn't want a throbbing two foot sense of humor? Who wouldn't want to be able to suck their own sense of humor when they're driving in their car?

Well, some times you're just not funny. You try to be funny, and all that happens is not funny-ness. Gone are the days when you were squirting ropey strands of hot, white humor into the open and willing mouths of dozens of people at once.

For instance, right now, you are probably expecting something funny. Unlike Ron Jeremy, I don't have a staff of washed up commercial actors to fluff my humor. All it's good for lately is knocking against my knee in my sweat pants, making no one laugh.

This blog fuckin sucks 

For too long, I have put my blogging in a box. I was worried that people read this thing, so I needed to "tone it down". Well, now that all readers and most writers of this blog has been starved out, I can carry on like a madman.

So fuck you. Get ready for more death threats, mania, and wanton vulgarity. And more misspellings.

Suck it.

A PSA 

At approximately 12:30pm EST I will finish my last law school exam.

That is all.

A Kilo is 1000 Grams 


Why are you sitting there doing something stupid like "studying for finals" or "working at your job" when you should be out buying Ghostface Killah's Fishscale. This is the best hip hop album I have heard in years. At the risk of not being taken seriously, this is in league with earlier Wu-Tang like Liquid Swords or 36 Chambers.

Overheard in New York: Final Exams Edition 

Me: [Buying coffee and a cupcake to surprise Girlfriend who is working on a take-home exam in the library.]
Coffeeshop woman: Do you want a bag?
Me: Yeah, I need to sneak the cupcake past the guard.
CSW: A theater?
Me: [Sadly] No, a library.
CSW: On cinco de mayo?
Me: Yep, I have my last law school exam on Monday. [Heart leaps!]
CSW: Forever?
Me: Forever-ever. [Elated!]
CSW: But what about the bar?
Me: Um, yeah, there's that... [Exits with deflated spirit.]

ceci n'est pas une big waste of time 

Surrealism to go.
One of the original Lobster Phones.

Lego men and women enjoy surrealist phones.
This replica is for sale from a British company for roughly $2000. Note the difference between the original.

News In Brief 

You know what black goo I am tired of hearing about?
I am so tired of hearing about oil. If only they could design a car that can run on bad ideas and emit a clean vapor of shut the fuck up about oil, all my problems would be solved.

Beer Flavored Ice Cream
Ben and Jerry's Black and Tan is awesome. I only wish it had more of the stout flavored ice cream.

About us:

This weblog is an ongoing, if periodic, effort by several friends to stay in touch, in reading material, and in ideas.

Lucky Luciano is a former Italian Stallion real estate hustler and Benedict Arnold CEO turned shady lawyer-to-be. He lives in Denver.

Ben is a Paramedic and would-be philantropist who lives in Denver. He knows everything about nothing.

Fuzzy Dunlop lives in Manhattan. He is more than capable of standing up to the stresses of a high crime urban environment.

Jess is a teacher. But have YOU given her an apple? No, you haven't. You should be ashamed of yourself. This crazy feminist currently rests her copy of Awakening in Jersey City.

Matt is a pariah, iconoclast, and professor of gambling living in Oakland.

Miguel Sanchez is not Lionel Hutz.

Daddy Brooklyn lives in Brooklyn. He hates Republicans, though he wouldn't mind being ensconced in the landed elite of New York City.

Paul just smoked my eyelids and punched my cigarette.

Ziggy Stardust has no past.
