Shocker? Not Really.

According to the festival's website, this summer's upcoming ZOOMA Tour, featuring Trey Anastasio and Ben Harper among many other guests like MMW and Claypool, has been cancelled.

As Principal Joe Clark said to Mrs. Elliott, "Your concert is hereby cancelled. You do know what cancelled means...over, finished, terminated!"

But hakuna matata, folks, leave your worries behind -- Big Red is planning a whole new summer tour. 70 Volt Parade will not be denied its chance to make you miss Phish.

Slack Song of the Day: The Benevento/Russo Duo playing Foam with Mike Gordon from The Paradise in Boston on 12/29/04.

Oh, and by the way, don't tell anyone, but this A-Rod fella is sloooowly becoming an honest-to-God Yankee. Shhhhhh.

And Spanish Miguel passed this along last night, one of the all-time greatest headlines ever from the CBS Sportsline fantasy baseball department:

Putz Pitching Like One

J.J. Putz, RP SEA -- News: Mariners manager Mike Hargrove hasn't lost faith in reliever J.J. Putz, who has allowed four homers in his last six appearances. "Guys come out of this as quickly as they get into it," Hargrove said.

I love the way that he makes everyone pronounce his name, "Pootz". Come on now, that type of stuff is saved for Canadian hockey players like Herbert (pronounced "ey-bear") and Bourque (pronounced "borke').

Sometimes you just gotta suck it up and be proud of being a Putz. Play off of it, use it as a tool for comedy, making everyone laugh to take their minds off of the fact that you suck.

As for A-Rod, he's playing scary-good beisbol right now. While the Red Sox are just plain scary to watch. How do you have one run off of 7+ hits? I may kill myself. The June swoon has already hit and it isn't even June yet.

Considering "putz" is my family's favorite disparaging remark, I've been a big fan of this dude since he got called up. Anyone who goes by "Pootz" is just proving how big a putz he really is.

As for the Sawx, like I said with the Yanks, don't panic yet. It's way too early. BUT, I will say your staff looks like it's in trouble right now. Big Schilling out til at least the break, maybe more...I hope he's crying blooody tears into his pillow at night.

I could be in the Sox pitching rotation right now and give up less runs in the first inning. The league should create a rule that allows us to have 4 outfielders and an infielder to play between short and second whenever Boomer and Jeremi Gonzalez pitch.

I still think we should trade Damon and Bellhorn for a good pitcher. Stick Mueller at second, Youkilis at third and Payton in Center. But, we did just call up Soft-Shell Olerud and Schopak, so we can still hope for the best.

Schilling can cry tears of blood into his wife's melanoma for all I care. The fat bastard came back this year 30 pounds overweight. It must have been the republican campaign food.

I love Lean on Me. My favorite part is when he slams Sam's face in the door on the way to talk to the new music teacher about the school song. I think he also slams him into the piano.

Nice, JR, that is EASILY my favorite scene in the movie...slams him right into the door, then right into the piano.

Take a bow, Mrs. Powers, you just re-wrote the school song.

Kid Ray? The two best Kid Ray quotes:

Mr. Clark, come quick, some guuuy's beatin' up Kid Ray.

You'll be dead in a year, son. You hear me? You'll be dead in a year.

Go see the movie "Crash." Sure enough, the Mexican guy is married to the woman who says:

"Mr. Clark, come quick, some guuuy's beatin' up Kid Ray."

Oh, and if you go to Kineesha's apartment, watch for falling pumpkins.

I'm not dropping out, I'm moving on.

I liked how Christopher from the Sopranos was one of the losers who got kicked out.

The song they play when Clark, Ms. Levias and Keneeeesha go to see her mom always makes me well up a little bit. Sad stuff.

I believe it's called "All the Way to Love" by Siedah Garrett.

Although that can't top the cheesy "Everybody is Somebody" song leading up to the skills test.

"I don't have to do nothin' but stay black and die."

"We don't want a good principal. We want Mr. Clark!"
