Bret Michaels' hemorrhage painful
You gotta be shittin' me!
Runners up must have been:
Michaels: Hemorrhage was like "swallowing poison."
Michaels "felt an unskinny pop" in head
Look what the cat scan dragged in
Nothin' but a brain bleed for Poison's Michaels
Rikki Rockit Found Dead
Plus, CNN wizards: Elements of Style states that one should add an extra "apostrophe s" to even words that already end in "s." I know you are trying not to fry calcified minds of the trash-polloi, but seriously!
Hey, things are fine (that fall '93 ski sweater is still in great shape!), just a quick note to say that at whatever point you decided that Jon Spencer Blues Explosion utterly sucked, well, you were entirely right! He's got a new best-of out, now, in 2010 (I don't know why, either!), and I dutifully listened to it to see if maybe, just maybe, you had been wrong about this group...stupid of me, I know. Well, needless to say, you were correct (as ever)! It's awful! Even the guitar tones are so meh (ask me later about this word) and raunchless. Mea culpa for ever doubting you!
All this guy did was invent Johnny Knoxville and generally be a Shitty Dexter Romweber! OH! That reminds me - go over to Renaissance (it's closed now! I know!) and nose around for a copy of the Athens GA Inside/Out soundtrack and store it someplace. It's hard to come by, even in the future formats that I couldn't explain to your nineties Party of Five mind. Then when I get home tonight I will have it or go dig it up wherever you bury it!

In September 2008, it was announced that Tartt would publish her third novel
with Little, Brown and Co. The new novel, as yet untitled, is
a story of loss and obsession about a young man, guilt-stricken and damaged
after the death of his mother, and the growing power that a stolen piece of art
exercises over him, drawing him into an underworld of theft and corruption where
nothing is as it seems. Publication scheduled for 2012.

Was way into posting this pic with a simple, tasteful "Hey! I DO need to rent Battlefield Earth!" title line, but on looking at the pic on the screen and not the poster itself in the granulated morning halflight of the coffee shop, some wag had already made the joke in a far subtler sharpie-equipped way...the eyebrows are drawn on, thus making the joke. So another post is subsumed by circumstance.
Still, it made me listen to "Reel Around the Fountain" with different ears and lead to my latest idee du bumper sticker:
