How posts win

I still see dumb shit all the time, take a picture and say "it's tough running a blog" to whomever I'm with.   Sometime posts win extra big, as with:

I mean, you know, Power Station.   Which is also what Kraftwerk means in German, as you know.

But then the sorta-hidden "deep" life advice becomes apparent with some judicious pruning:

While I'm dredging up icons of the past,

have been making a half-assed attempt to read American Psycho for the whatevereth time.  Here are the proper times of the year to read BEE books:

Less Than Zero - July
The Rules of Attraction - just before school starts (duh)
American Psycho - last week/April
The Informers - just after Thanksgiving
Glamorama - January
Lunar Park - October
Imperial Bedrooms - August or vacation or - best - never

See, I don't post regularly for ages and then I post crap like this. You're trapped, you.

At long last Morrissey

Looking to get this Prong shirt for the show.   Reasons why will become apparent
in due time, mes chers.
Until he cancels, I'm finally seeing Morrissey on June 30th.   I almost went to see the Smiths in Cleveland in 1986, but failed to see that last-ever American tour leg as I had to go work at TCBY.   Yes.

What would I ask Morrissey?  We've been through this before, but I want to know if the "ECK cetera"s all over "Sweet and Tender Hooligan" were on purpose or not.  As he is devious, truculent and unreliable, I'm guessing he would chortle and aver that of course they were intentional.  I'd know if he were lying.
