    Of course. One of you has to hold the bottle steady while the other pours.

    Kudos to you too, Guy. I look forward to your further adventures. May your tea always be well-aged, and your world always slightly bent.

  2. CJ Ciaramella says:

    Thanks, Michaele. Just doing my irresponsible, lazy job. Credit goes to a certain Guy Simmons as well.

    Oh, and Vincent, I’ll do the cover picture with you, but only if I get to wear corpse paint.

  3. michaele says:

    Hey CJ– thanks for the “Dispatch from the Bowels….” I’m glad to see chemically-enhanced journalism is still being practiced.

    It seems that more than the OC’s reporters were blacked out -hardly a rippling glimmer of the convention in the press. (My suspcion is that unenhanced attendance was nothing to write about.) Your article is a great help to those of us unable, unwilling or too old to spend a day with 35mph socialists.

    Stay with that fear and loathing road. One tip, though -when you find yourself drinking Scope at 3am, it’s time to find a rest stop.

  4. Zach Vishanoff says:

    I knew it! You guys are in bed with Frohnmayer and Knight. It’s all coming together now. The dots are connecting at an exponential rate – Moss Street, Frohnmayer, Knight, Oregon Commentator, the State Board of Higher Education, Bellotti, China, nanotechnology, eminent domain, police state, underground civilization of gnomes, the lost continent of Atlantis, spy satellites, new world order!

    You’ll see. just wait for my new poster/flow chart!

  5. Frohnmayer says:

    Thanks for not covering the arena issue ever again -the unmarked duck bucks(along witha 12 pack of Coors light) will be in a briefcase by the garbage can by the rec center after midnight tonight like we agreed. You are also now honorary members of the order of the O.

  6. CJ Ciaramella says:

    Ha, I can imagine the lede.

    “A gunman opened fire in Taylor’s bar and grill yesterday. No one was killed, but a Hollister polo and pair of Ugg boots remain in serious condition.”

  7. Timothy says:

    What? – Did he hit anyone in Taylor’s? If so, give the kid a medal.

  8. Vincent says:

    CJ: I blame WordPress. A proper administrator would’ve turned off “emoticons” long ago. So maybe YOU’RE permabanned.

    As an alternate punishment, I will invite you to join me in re-creating the cover of that T. Rex album. I get to be Marc Bolan, of course. You can be Mickey Finn.

  9. What? says:

    Is anyone going to talk about the kid who was shooting a gun by Taylor’s on Friday night?

  10. Al Czervik says:

    What’s photoshop?

  11. Shadow says:

    I thoroughly enjoyed it.

  12. Gsim says:

    We’re just trying to stay between the lines for now.

  13. Timothy says:

    I like the cover guys, although I’d have touched up the color in photoshop so it didn’t have that coloring book look…unless that’s what you were going for.

  14. Jan says:

    This blog is full of dirty emoticoncists.

  15. CJ Ciaramella says:

    I’m sorry, Vincent. We have a zero tolerance policy on emoticons here, especially ones with sunglasses. You are permabanned.

  16. Drew says:

    new issue lets drink

  17. Vincent says:

    Err. That shouldn’t be a “smiley face with sunglasses.” It should be an eight.

  18. Vincent says:

    Ossie: Yeah, “Electric Warrior” is a superior album. It’s album artwork is also what one could characterize as “pretty cool”, whereas the “T. Rex” album art is what one may say looks “stupid and absurd”.

    In any case, the hierarchy of T. Rex albums (leaving out the older Tyrannosaurus Rex material) is as follows:

    1) Dandy in the Underworld
    2) Electric Warrior
    3) The Slider
    4) Tanx
    5) Futuristic Dragon
    6) T. Rex
    7) Zinc Alloy and the Hidden Riders of Tomorrow
    8) Bolan’s Zip Gun.

    That said, all of them except “Zinc Alloy” and “Bolan’s Zip Gun” are pretty essential. And really, a more accurate list would put “Electric Warrior” and “The Slider” on the same level. The same could be said of “Tanx” and “Futuristic Dragon.”

  19. Ossie says:

    I have Electric Warrior and think it is a far superior album.

  20. Vincent says:

    3) Great issue!

  21. Vincent says:

    1) Surge was not a cola.
    2) I have that T. Rex album.

  22. Sean Jin says:

    Thank you, Traffic Director Emeritus.

  23. Niedermeyer says:

    Fuck yes.

    Fantastic issue folks… laughed my ass off.
