OK, so, Cool Event of the Week is the Webzine 98 thingy.
I'd think it was a horrible blech gar-gar-gar-fest, except
the exceptional people at Unamerican Activities are
sponsoring it. And they are so cool it makes my neck
I think it could be fun. We're gonna go. Someone I was talking to said she
went to this last year and had acid-laced "Peeps" (Yeah, the little marshmallow
Easter chickens). Personally, I think that's reason enough to go. I mean,
dosed "Peeps"! That's _EVIL_!
But I also think it would be great publicity if the Pigdog crew got in a huge
drunken fistfight with some group wimpier yet more famous than us. Like, say,
Suck. I mean, there are 70s punk bands whose sole claim to fame is that they
kicked the ass of the Clash outside some slimey London club.
Ratsnatcher thinks we should keel-haul Michael Kinsley from "Slate" behind a
pickup truck, but something tells me he's not gonna be there. I don't like
fighting, anyways. Maybe I can buy the Suck people some drinks and they'll
agree to stage a fight and take a dive.
Anyways, I'm still holding out hopes that this is going to be real grassroots
zine thingy and not a wannabe hipster corp-o-fest. But, I say, check it out.
