Dead Rock Stars, or Why The Calendar Sucks

Jerry Garcia died on this day in 1995. Thanks buttloads to Ilse for the huge downer of reminding me of that one. But since she usually lights up my life, we'll cheerfully forgive her occasional hopeless bleak despair, and the sharing thereof.

Also: John Lennon was born on this day in 1940. I think. I can't be bothered to look it up, but Wikipedia works fine, no?

And remember: Snakes On A Plane opens August 18, only one thin week from Friday. We got motherfuckin' snakes!

October 9, 1940.

And you wondered why I was grumpy this morning. I figured I'd let you have your caffeine before I reminded you.

It's October already? Damn, I'm almost 2 months late for work.

This is also the anniversary of the first night game at Wrigley Field. Well, the first one that wasn't rained out, that is.

And. You haven't even mentioned Tags replacement.

I want to see that movie! What I don't want to see? Tucker Carlson on Dancing With The Stars. Unless he falls a lot or strangles on his little bow tie.
