good

current mood: good

Another newspaper bites the dust. I just learned that the Weekly World News is ending its print publication with the August 27th issue. The WWN didn't rely on spin, corporate opinion, or even actual facts. In that sense it was pure. It may have been the only thing that made waiting in the supermarket check-out line a guilty pleasure. Good-bye Batboy, I'll miss you. How will I ever know if the Loch Ness Monster finds true love, or where Elvis is living this year? I guess advice columnist Ed Anger finally has something to be angry about. WWN will still be available online, but it just isn't the same.



Today's my big summer vacation - all 24 hours of it! The work project hasn't really allowed for a lot of time off. And I've also totally lost track of all the B-T posts that have appeared in the last few days O_O!!! I hope to enjoy a pleasant summer day with my best friend, a nice lunch, some man-watching and maybe even some new shoes or a Drug Party (the Gackt kind) And then we'll start drinking and end up like ...

Schweinfest. I never got around to posting that look-back at Schweinfest this summer. I had the clippings and magazines ready to go and just lost track of time. Cause nothing says hot and sweaty like August. Or Schweinfest:




Scans today from UV #69 from November 2001.

love letter

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO NOT THE WEEKLY WORLD NEWS

i loved it so. i knew a guy who worked in their call center-- he said they really didn't have to make up too much because so many people called in crazy shit.

Oh my, I remember reading those when we had our fast food restaurant. People would buy it from the Drug Store next to us, buy some food at the Food Court and then read while they ate. They usually left it on the tables, guess they didn't want to be caught carrying it back to their offices..LOL..

Ooo..love your new icon <3<3<3 it's so cute :D

Thanks for the Schweinfest scans. I smile when I see his floral shirt as he wore that or something similar in the Other Phantom Tour clips, I've seen.

Have a fantastic day off and get out there and kick back and relax.

It's hard to resist one of those insane tabloids, especially when they're right there for the reading XD

It rained on my day off, but you know it was still a pleasure to be out and running around with brainwhisper We still managed to hit many of our favorite places.

Thank you *blush* I thought it was time I made an icon that was uniquely my own. Just too lazy to do one before.

It's true! I remember seeing some of those actual covers on the news stand!

Those shirts were fashionable for like, 10 minutes or something. I'm glad they're gone too.

Thank you! It was my first real try to make an icon.

Yeah - a natural-looking Tetsu is a rarity!

I blame a Schwein hangover for that look XD Those shirts really were awful.

A day off is always a good thing - even if it rained all day.

Mmmm, Schwein!

I had a grand time on our day out in spite of it being a rainy chilly day in August. No new shoes, but plenty of pork buns!

Your new icon is perfect.

Yeah, tigers are cute XD Or did you mean the other part... XDDD

Well that other part is pretty nice, but I meant the combination of course: Atsushi and his tiger pal!

I really don't know which is scarrier...The kitten, or Atsushi's shirt...

Kittens that murder in cold blood are waaaaaaay scarier. Although that shirt is not one of D&G's better creations :/

Atsushi And Kitty

I know! It's so tragic when even the cute widdle fluffy poopi-doodle kittens turn into mass murderers! Makes me have second thoughts about getting a Bengal Cat when I get out on my own....

I like the materiel, it accents his figure well. But the color and the print belong on my grandmother's blouse...Unless, of course, by some strange twist of fate Atsushi IS my grandmother, then it would fit...
Excuse me while I go bleach that image from my mind.
