Day Three: It's Hell

I've been joking about the NYC transit strike because of the awesome benefits its bestowed on me: couchness, pajammies, televisors, a little nappy, nap nap naparoo.

But there's a real ugly side to the transit strike that's affecting the lives of countless New Yorkers, and I saw that side first-hand last night. Shit, the quality of life here in Man-hattan continues to decline, as evident in this scene I witnessed last night:

Girl 1: "Did you do drugs tonight?"
Girl 2: "Who can afford drugs with a fuckin' transit strike?"

Goddamnit, Toussaint, do you only think of yourself at a time like this? You selfish Jamaican fuck, mon.

It looks like we're close to a settlement on this pupper, but the pain he and his union have caused cannot be repaired.

Slack Link of the Day: Finally, some good news out of Jets camp... Dr. Z has this to say about Gang Green:

"Don't count them out in the Reggie Bush sweepstakes. Check out this scenario. San Francisco (2-12) upsets St. Louis on Saturday and then loses to 2-12 Houston on the final weekend. The Jets drop their last two, and now all three of them are 3-13, plus, possibly, New Orleans and Green Bay. Now based on the current records, guess which team's opponents have the worst won-lost, which is the determining factor in who gets the first pick? Why, the Jets do, yes they do. Quick, suit up Al Woodall to play QB for the final pair. Bill Demory, where are you? Does anyone remember Dick Wood?"

Slack Song of the Day: Just gettin' down to business with some clever covers here, some good, some just funny -- Sneakin' Sally Through the Alley, Runnin' with the Devil, Frankenstein, Collective Soul's Shine, and because I love when Trey and Tom sing "Hannibal Lechter" in place of the "Ba da da, ba da da," here's (I'm Gonna Be) 500 Miles,

doesn't "toussaint" sound like a good name for a crazy militant dictator somewhere in africa?

not only does the transit strike inhibit drug use due to cost, but it also diminishes delivery options. will this atrocity be over soon?

Ah, drug users can now breathe a sigh of relief...

And I was wondering if anyone would catch it, but Sneakin Sally as the song of the day was self-described genius...that's an Allen Toussiant number.

Too Many Toussaints = SETEC ASTRONOMY.
