Rumor has it McMoby’s (TEAny) has a jack-o’-lantern that has “LES” carved into it.
What would happen if we asked Jamie Oliver about music? Maybe something like this:
JAMIE OLIVER: Hiya. How are you doing, dah-lin’?
THE MODERN AGE: Fine. Hey- what are you listening to?
JO: Em… Coldplay.
TMA: Oh I love Coldplay!
TMA: Do you like The Strokes?
JO: Yup. Listen to them. They’re great.
TMA: Yeah. They’re awesome. What about The White Stripes?
JO: ::hesitates:: …The…? ::shakes head, not understanding::
TMA: The White Stripes?
JO: I don’t think I know them…
TMA: Oh really?
JO: OH WAIT! Yes, I DO know them! I have their album ::mild satisfaction::.
TMA: Which album?
JO: ….emm…. uh…. ::thinks really hard:: The one with the- … face ::draws a “face” in the air::
TMA: ::thinks:: That’s not a White Stripes album!
JO: No really, I have it!
TMA: ::skeptical:: Are you sure it’s not some other band???
JO: No, it’s them.
TMA: ::still skeptical:: Um… maybe it’s White Blood Cells???
JO: Yeah, that must be it.
TMA: Ok- sure. Whatever.
Later, TMA realizes that Sir Oliver might have been talking about the “Fell in Love with a Girl” single released on XL in the UK. Ok, so maybe he owns a White Stripes release, BUT IT’S STILL NOT AN ALBUM! TMA decides to still take 100 points away from him… and 50 more because he brought up how he had the album when he really didn’t know what he was talking about.
HYPOTHETICALLY SPEAKING, JAMIE OLIVER WOULD LOSE HIS “CRED”!

On the weird no-info Realistics shows this week: Pianos will not be opened on time, but the band will still do some gigs. Check their Web site on where they will take place. Most likely it will be at Luna Lounge but check to make sure.
If anyone is going to Boys & Girls this week, you can ask Tim how his solo project is going.
