In Other News….

OK – there’s no testimony today in the Spector trial, as is usual for Friday’s, so I thought I would turn to some other news and see what else is happening around here.
In Local news, Hosler’s burned down (again). Hosler’s is a restaurant here in Malone. This is the third time it has burned down. Draw your own conclusions. Before the fire was even out, the owner posted the words “We’ll be back” on the sign outside. And since it’s a loss of 27 jobs in Malone, well, let’s hope that they do come back. We certainly don’t need 27 more people on unemployment.
And Hosler’s is right across the street from the fair, which starts this weekend. So now, at least, they’ll have a nice empty parking lot to fill with fairgoers at $3.00 a pop.
I’m looking forward to the fair, since I FINALLY got everything done and brought it in on Wednesday (YEAH ME!). If anyone wants to come to experience the Malone Fair, let me know, because I’ll bet I can score you some Loverboy tickets! Yes, Loverboy – Because we get the really *big* acts here. Fucking Loverboy. See, that’s what I’m talking about. Loverboy. That’ll bring people to Malone – that encourages tourism. Loverboy. I can’t even imagine what Loverboy is asking as an appearance fee these days. Probably $50 and a couple of coupons for the all you can eat buffet at La Pizza. And you know, I doubt I’d pay *that*.
And the best part is that Loverboy is not like the “secondary, cheap concert because I can’t afford to go see the *real* headliner, like the Kanye West concert”. No, the best part is that Loverboy is THE HEADLINER concert. Loverboy must be pissing all over themselves to be the headliners again. Loverboy is the “Big act” at the fair this year. They must think they won some kind of fucking Jackpot.In contrast, the Burlington fair has “Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard and Ray Price” as one concert, and their washed up rock and roller concert includes “Joan Jett, Blue Oyster Cult and Foghat”, and their “we had to get *somebody* current concert” is “Brad Paisley and Trace Adkins”. And that’s Burlington Freaking Vermont. You’d think if Burlington Vermont could get three washed up rock and rollers for one concert, Malone could, too. I mean, what’s Loverboy going to do, go out there on stage, since “Everybody’s Working for the Weekend” and then leave? Do they have any “new albums” to pimp? And how much of their “old stuff” is recognizable? “Here’s a song we did in 1987 that never actually hit the top 1000, but we hope you like it now…”
In other musical news, my rock
and roll star brother (not to be confused with my heroin addict brother), finally left his hideous wife. Of course, he leaves her all the time, only to return a few weeks later. But he’s actually been gone at least a month now, which is unusual, and he swears it’s for good this time. We’ll see. This is a picture of the rock and roll star brother. He looks so much like my Dad it’s uncanny. I haven’t heard from the heroin addict brother in quite a while. I still have his crap here, too. It’s sitting right next to Todd’s crap in the Harley Barn. And all that shit is heading for the garage sale I keep threatening to have, but never actually have quite enough energy to put together. I will – someday. And here are some new pictures of the gang.

Now I am off to Joann’s to get that blue and white yarn.
