1. it's funnier if you were there.
2. a couple of friends of mine have fucked them, way back in their "nobody" years of the late 80s. apparently they like dumb blondes (of all orientations)
3. i miss them, and am unashamed to say i'm glad to know they have a new album out, no matter how much it may suck. all the critics hated "Violator," but you and i both know how that's spun off some of the greatest remix shit, like, ever. Read more about Thursday Night Crappy Music Blogging
So I know that most of you are like me, "cynics" or "PUMAs" or "bitter dead enders" or otherwise irredeemable and more importantly, ignored by People Who Matter. But just for the fun of it, I have to ask: what, if anything, could Obama do to win your love? And support?
