...the lonley sound of time passing in the long Caribbean night.

The fate of The Rum Diary has been up in the air now for quite a few years, as you can see from this letter in Harper's from 2001. It is good to hear they are finally moving forward without Shooting Gallery. On a personal note, this has to be one of my favorite Hunter passages...

Comedian John Mayer's open letter to his fans

... on his blog regarding the 63 arrests at his Hershey Park show.


This weekend, at my concert in Hershey Pennsylvania, 63 audience members were arrested for various drug and alcohol offenses. Seeing as I have always kept a strong line of communication with my fans, I'd like to take a moment to address this unfortunate incident.

First, to the 46 people accused of underage drinking; what were you thinking? You have your whole life to engage in underage drinking. What's the hurry? I didn't start underage drinking until I was 26. Underage drinking is not an function of age, but of style. And you kids are way too young to truly appreciate the nuances of true underage drinking.

Though the names of the arrested were not released to the public, I was able to obtain them by way of my well-placed source in the Hershey police department. Upon first glance, I find it interesting that of the 63 arrested, 55 were named Kyle.

And to those reading who believe that 63 arrests is on the high side, it actually doesn't even make this tour's top ten. Night two of Red Rocks Ampitheatre in Colorado saw more than half that capacity crowd placed under arrest, and in Houston, Texas two weeks ago, I myself was ensnared by the long arm of the law when I was cited for illegally soliciting an undercover canine cop. (My apologies to Champ II.)

In looking to the future, I hope that this will serve as a wake-up call to young fans who may be thinking about engaging in illegal activity at one of my concerts. If I happen to be walking backstage and I see any of you young men passed out drunk on a stretcher, make no mistake about it, you will come-to in front of your disappointed parents with a face full of Sharpie and the sneaking suspicion that you've been teabagged by one of Time Magazine's 100 most influential people of 2007.

I'm here (for you!),
John Mayer

"I try to always wear puke green when I'm in Baltimore because that's my favorite color," said the venerable "Pope of Trash," who hadn't made a PG-rated movie before "Hairspray" - and hasn't since.

Harry Lives (and no one cares much)

Harry Potter 7 is out on the torrent sites and Harry lives. what a bummer...but...

"Dumbledore is dead!... Dumbledore was already dying when Snape finished him!" - HP&TDH page 740-741


"Voldemort was dead, killed by his own rebounding curse" - HP&TDH page 743

Not sure who either of them are, but I'm sure that ruined someone's day.

This says it all...

Thanks Mike.


In almost every way, Steve Manson finds himself living a storybook life scripted by Disney.

Born and raised in West Baltimore, the 22-year-old sailor is part of the support crew for Morning Light, which will set sail tomorrow in the grueling Transpacific Yacht Race from California to Hawaii aboard a boat financed by Roy Disney.

The 2,225-mile voyage by 11 young sailors, the youngest crew to compete in the race, is being filmed for a documentary to be released next year.
