For entertainment, I thought of something. What if comic book superheros weren’t that heroic and ambitious? What if, instead of using their superpowers to fight crime, they used them in regular jobs? The Flash might work at a fast food restaurant, and Spider-Man could be high-rise window washer. Jean Grey of the X-Men might work down at the docks loading and unloading cargo from ships, and Nightcrawler could work for a metropolitan courier service. And Wolverine? Well, Benihana’s might just have a need for another teppanyaki chef.Permanent Link.
Zwan is not the Pumpkins. You may think so, because Billy was the head of the Smashing Pumpkins and now he's the head of Zwan, but: Zwan is not the Pumpkins. Zwan almost seems like James Iha music.

Hell—err, I mean classes—have officially begun with the homework due tonight.Permanent Link.
“I have to go in to work on Sunday,” she said.
“For what?” I said.
“For the students.”
“So they can take classes.”
“To get an education.”
“To get a good job.”
“To bring home the bacon and get some boom boom.”
“To carry on the species.”
“To keep polluting the environment.”
“So you’re going in to work on Sunday to keep polluting the environment?”
“Just about.”Permanent Link.
Sometimes you see the same stock photography being used over and over again. And sometimes, you feel sorry for those models who have to suffer having their faces plastered all over worthless products and cheap advertising.Permanent Link.
Want to see me make a prediction? Here it is: In time, we’ll hear about neighborhood kids playing “Segway Drag Racing” and “Segway Chicken”.Permanent Link.
What happened to restaurant service? It used to be that when you asked to take the rest of your meal home, they would take the rest of your meal, but it in containers, and bring it back in the commonly referred to “doggy bag”. Nowadays, when you ask for the rest of your meal to go, they simply bring you some styrofoam containers and you’re left to package up the rest of your meal.Permanent Link.
Sometimes when I shave, I’ll miss a spot and not notice. I figure it’s either because I’m getting older, or because I always shave first thing in the morning when I’m too damn tired.Permanent Link.
