Response to The 40 Cutest Things That Happened This Year:
#23 looks like Penny Marshall
Two guys running local businesses under their names:
That Weezer concert in Japan they play on Palladium network where a girl holds up a sign asking to play guitar with them and they get her up on stage to play rhythm for “Undone (The Sweater Song)”? I get goosebumps just thinking about it. She can’t hardly handle it, but then somehow does. Awesome.
Page 2: “The juggalos have been charged with the discharge of a firearm.” Yes, that’s the complete sentence, and is as meaningless as anything ICP has ever said.
Should law enforcement suspect that someone wearing black and white clown makeup in public has anti-social tendencies, poor decision-making skills and a possible propensity for violence? Probably.
Should they need the FBI’s specific knowledge of the ways of the Juggalo to inform that suspicion? I really hope not.
The funniest thing about this post is the idea of the poor FBI special agent ordered to use his training to fit in with these fools, get showered with Faygo and try to keep track of what’s in the Jeffrey. Funny except we’re paying for it.

David Foster Wallace isn’t as famous (yet) as the others on this list, but his unfinished “The Pale King” is one of the best books I’ve ever read. His notes suggest that, had he published it, it would have been disjointed and ambiguous anyway, like the (non-) ending of his “Infinite Jest.” An entertaining and deep novel about soul-crushing tedium and the heroism therein.
