After returning from a night of pubcrawl planning (aka “a night of drinking in East Atlanta”) I opened up the fortune cookie I received last week to see this fortune

Woo Hoo! It’s a sign! A sign I tell you! I laughed aloud for minutes!
East Atlanta, GA — After missing this year’s fantasy league football playoffs, East Atlanta Deadbeat Dads’ owner Paulie has fired the team’s coach, Paulie.
He was solely responsible for missing the playoffs. Who juggles starting quarterbacks like that? The fact that he led the team to a championship last season matters not. I’m all about ‘What have you done for me lately?’ when it comes to running my business. Does he expect to stay making such decisions? Who does he think he is? (Eric) Mangini? [NY Jets’ head coach] (Willie) Randolph? [NY Mets’ manager] (both whom took teams to playoffs last year and had their teasm collapse this season)
The team’s owner was quoted as saying.
Coach Paulie could not be reached for comments. Coach Paulie was suspected to be out drinking his sorrows away in the East Atlanta Village.

While walking past the old Echo Lounge last Saturday I saw that the gates were opened, so I took a shot of this old concert poster.
I miss having the Echo Lounge in East Atlanta.
This Could Have Been A Website Pick Of The Day
But it will really only apply to the 5% of the population running Mac computers. Each day until December 24th the website MacSanta highlights Mac software that is being sold for 20% off on the day it is highlighted. If you own a Mac, like yours truly, go there each day between now and December 24th to see what is available. And don’t worry I don’t get a cut of this action — I am doing this out of the goodness of my heart.
CD Pick Of The Week
It’s another one of those weeks. According to Metacritic there are eleven “new” (quoted because some are live and some are “best of” so I really don’t consider them to be new) and I don’t really have a good feeling about any of the artists.
You are on your own, and looking at the coming weeks things won’t be getting much better. Maybe I’ll pick some 2007 releases that got ignored instead.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – stupid, not in a “Oh shit! I just cut off the top of my thumb” way, more in a “I feel like an ass” way
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing The Apples In Stereo — “Tidal Wave” (I still can’t believe I never saw them in concert this year)
Website Of The Day – I feel stupid today, so what better place for me to pick than Stupid. They have some truly bizarre shit for sale.
