Doesn't he look like what any slender 64 year old who hasn't had plastic surgery would look like if he grew his hair out?


always have been curious about iggy . . . is it just old age or did he live a fast life of booze/drugs/and what not, that made him look the way he does now?

yes, he does look worse than his age.  all those years of heroine haven't done him any favors.

Don't Radiohead qualify?

Cracked is blocked here at work but I LOVE that website.

Kiss's Music From The Elder is on there isn't it?  How about Hammer's "Bumps and a Pump?"  Chris Gaines?

nope, 'cause despite how much you hate their reinventions it's hard to call them ill-advised.  they were critical darlings, sold a buttload of albums, sold out the ensuing tours, etc etc.  when you see the list tonight, even you will have to admit that "kid a" doesn't belong with the others.

nice calls: #14, #1 and #13.  i'm impressed!

Don't be.  I think that's an old list that I've already read.

Tattoo artist Ryan Fitzgerald from Dayton, OH was hit with a $100,000 lawsuit last week by his ex-girlfriend Rossie Brovent.  She claims that her boyfriend was supposed to tattoo a scene from Narnia on her back but instead tattooed an image of a pile of excrement with flies buzzing around it.

Apparently, Ryan found out that Rossie had cheated with a long-time friend of his, but instead of confronting her about it he acted like everything was normal and hatched a plan for revenge. Originally, Rossie tried to have Ryan charged with assault, but the ingenious tattoo artist had covered his bases by plying Rossie with wine and tequila shots and getting her to sign a consent form that stated the design was ?at the artist?s discretion.?

No word from Rossie on whether the illicit night of passion with Ryan?s friend was worth it. Moral of the story? Never cheat on a tattoo artist.
