After a difficult, eye-opening journey and a terrible discovery, six brave cats–Brambleclaw, Crowpaw, Feathertail, Squirrelpaw, Stormfur, and Tawnypelt–from StarClan must return home, to share news of impending doom with their clans.

Well, I got my reading list all set for the next 2 weeks.

Gikku.Com rocks the Big Digits Show

I convinced a certain man who shall remain nameless to go to a rock and roll concert with me last night. This rock concert was performed by a band named Big Digits. I first encountered this band a number of years ago with Sara, the hot 1/2 Armenian girl. We basically saw them go insane at The Enormous Room to an audience that was probably 7 people. Later, I took Erica aka Laaaammmeee (a frequent and insightful contributor to the Gikku.Com comments section). One of Big Digits took a particular liking to Erica and attempted to make her his groupie. I’m not sure what became of that because she moved to San Francisco soon after that and admitted to me that Boston was a teeny, tiny townie town and that I had been right all along…

I like music/You like music
I like fashion/You like fashion
Guys like me and girls like you
Are always down for party crashin’

If you took some Casio keyboards from the 80s, crossed them with the Beastie Boys, added some B-movie soundtracks, threw in a Phd in folklore and some Summervull locality, plus some wires and discarded motherboards and shit from down the street at MIT, you’d pretty much have the sound. Let’s put it like this: the album Smoke Machines in Laservision begins with a quote from Back to the Future.

If I had a business
I would have a business card
If I had a business
Talkin’ to you
I would give you my business card
I would give you my business card
I would give you my business card

Afterwords, Ben and I walked out pleased with ourselves. And the world.

GO SEE THIS BAND!

The Boss Reads Gikku

 Bruce Springsteen put his weight behind Obama Wednesday.

The Boss Backs Obama

(CNN) — Rocker Bruce Springsteen has endorsed Barack Obama for president.

“At the moment, critics have tried to diminish Senator Obama through the exaggeration of certain of his comments and relationships,” said the New Jersey native, in a statement posted on his Web site Wednesday. “While these matters are worthy of some discussion, they have been ripped out of the context and fabric of the man’s life and vision… Over here on E Street, we’re proud to support Obama for President.”

————————-
Guess the Boss figured Obama was “Born to Run”. If he can give Hillary the “Tenth Avenue Freeze Out” on the “Streets of Philadelphia” next week, it’ll be “Glory Days”.

Finally, A Cure!

This is post for those of us that turn red when drinking alcohol — I have recently learned that there is a cure.

Yes, a cure. Salvation from Asian Flushing Syndrome, in convenient pill form. And its name is: Pepcid AC.

Not only is it over the counter, it’s one of my favorite activities in the whole wide world: using a drug for something other than its intended purpose.

I conducted small scale trials here in New York, and I can report that in the two studies I have done so far that it works. Take one Pepcid about 30 minutes before you start drinking. One dose should last the whole night.

My next experiment will be to see if it works after the drinking has commenced.

He had a “hand” in the dismantling of FARC.

Ivan Rios, whose real name was Manuel de Jesus Munoz, was one of six remaining members of the leadership council of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC.

“The FARC has suffered a new, major blow,” Colombian Defense Minister Juan Manuel Santos said, according to The Associated Press.

Rios was killed by his own chief of security, who offered items including the rebel leader’s severed right hand as proof of his death, the AP quoted Santos as saying.
