The Forgotten Side of the Music Business

We all remember the heydays of the 90’s, when you were walking down the street, minding your own business, when suddenly the intoxicating croons of a toothless vagrant infiltrated your ears.  Once considered a mongrel society that lurked on the fringes of contemporary culture, these crusty transients pried their way into our hearts and coin purses with anything from their barely intelligible renditions of classic rock songs, to borderline inappropriate drunken cat calls.

Now no one seems to carry actual money on them anymore. With the advent of the check card, these fine men and women are at risk of vanishing from the face of our city streets. That’s right, no weird guy named Freddy “Four Toes” Johnson imploring you to toss a nickel into his lice-ridden hat while he blows on a trio of beer bottles filled with varying amounts of urine.  As it becomes more apparent that this check card fad isn’t going to blow over anytime soon, the looming discontinuation of the American penny is also a source of distress for these musty hooligans.

So what can we do to help these delightful derelicts? Well I myself am not going to go out of my way to do anything, but you can if you want. Quite frankly I figured the bitter cold of winter would kill them off.

“The Weekly Watering”-new segment

In this new feature, I will plant the seeds of topics that I plan to cover in the upcoming week, only to return the next week to “water” them.

-My friend Sam received a poor performance review at his job for using “intimidation” in the workplace. I plan on finding out how to use these same tactics in my everyday life.

-Although last Halloween’s “Douchebag” costume was a huge success, it was determined this weekend that I will be dressing up as a “Naughty Constable” for this year’s celebration. October can’t come quick enough.

Well I am off to attend the IPR faculty concert at the Fine Line.

Zip it up and zip it out.
