We Are Taking the Armoire...

Here's an intriguing article from New Orleans I think we'll all enjoy: "Transvestite gang pesters Magazine Street."

“They’re fearless,” said Ogle. “Once they see something they like they won’t stop until they have it. They don’t care, they’ll go to jail. It’s really gotten bad. You know it’s ridiculous when everyone on the block knows who they are.”

Home Alone featured Pesci and Stern as the Wet Bandits, and the Sticky Bandits in the sequel. Anyone got a clever nickname for these he-shes? I'm goin' with the Tucked-Back Bandits.

Slack Song of the Day: So apparently is the new iD1G1T, and while it's not as comprehensive as the original, it looks pretty fucking sweet. Bookmark it, rummage through it, use it as a lubricant whilst you polish the knob, I don't care.

But if you're not utilizing the creator's hard work to your advantage, chances are you're a no-good fonzanoon. So let's celebrate the return of everyone's favorite short-lived procrastination tool with a brief playlist I just concocted in about 46 seconds:

The Book I Read (Talking Heads), Musta Got Lost (J. Geils Band, with a killer live intro), Sexx Laws (Beck), Pets (Perry Farrell), Change and Tones of Home (Blind Melon), Red Alert (Basement Jaxx, from the ecstasy days), and always a Slack LaLane fave, Glad Tidings (Van the Man).

I just used Soup by Blind Melon on a disc I made for a girl. What an unbelievable song. I'll never forget their appearance on Letterman, right after Kurt Cobain died, when Shannon sang Soup with a question mark written on his forehead.

I'm sure you've already seen this, but here is a link to 100 awesome videos according to Pitchfork.

Squeeze your big curls and let 'em down, Rotumba... Hey Reputa! Reputa the beautah! Let down your hair and lemme climb up the ladder of your love! - Part of maybe the greatest intro to a song of all time.

"The transvestites appear to be drug-addicted and fearless in their lust for designer shoes."
Myrtle Beach, Ace? Really?

Zeebs, as you point out, therer are so many lines in that article that seem so Onion-esque. We should do a quiz, with three reals and a fake.

And obviously I agree about the intro to that tune, Hoobs -- I'll maybe take Bill Graham's straight up intro to Help on the Way on One from the Vault, but as far as random, drug-addled song intros go, the J Geils Band knows what's up.

I hope never in my life to pull the trigger on a weapon. Not a gun, now a crossbow, not a can of whoopass. ALL CAPS ANON shot the shit out of some guns, though.
