Leper House - The Message Board

Cause, what the world needs now
Is a new kind of tension.
Cause the old one just bores me to death.
Cause, what the world needs now
Is another folk singer
Like I need a hole in my head.

One of my favorite songs – Teen Angst by Cracker. Too much damn stuff in this world. Except for strippers. You can never have too many strippers. Unless you’re holding auditions for a new Motley Crue video – then you might have too many. But you’ll need some spares after a few get soiled by Tommy Lee. And I digress.

I never thought you’d be a junkie because heroin is so passé. But so are blogs and here we are sharing literary needles with our readers. So addicted were some readers back in our Rock Star heyday that they demanded a message board. Unfortunately, between saving corporations from the throes of bankruptcy and making fun of MiG we didn’t have the time to satisfy those demands, besides the fact that we don’t like being told what to do. So don’t do that. Recently I was doing some research for a dedicated reader that unadvisedly consulted us on blogging, and the message board question arose. I had some time and set one up just for fun to see what was involved. Fortunately, it wasn’t as involved as assembling a gas grill and before you know it I had a living, breathing message board. I shared my bowl of oatmeal with it, changed the oil, and it appears to be running now.

Not being ones for shameless self-promotion, we quietly posted a link to Leper House on the sidebar of the blog earlier this week. Some attentive readers have discovered it, and it appears to be working nicely. Just a warning – it can be a pain in the ass to register, but after you refinance your home and earn a certificate in dishwasher technology from the University of Phoenix, they should let you in. Just hit the back button if you get stuck during the process. Or have a drink and fire off a letter to PETA. They have nothing to do with it, but I’m sure they’d love to hear about your wall-to-wall fur carpeting.

Surely, the last thing the world needs is another message board. We’re well aware of some of the popular ones that our readers already frequent and we don’t expect to replace those. We won’t be broken, shattered alive if you don’t visit. But if you’re lonely, you know we’re waiting here for you. No cliques, no titles, no rules. We enjoy the feedback and comments on the blog and hope those don’t go away, but if you have anything else to discuss with Moist, Sid or amongst yourselves then we hope we’ve found a place to accommodate you.

You're really too good for us, S&M. Or is that really too good to us?

Anyhow, in putting Cracker in the CD player so I could listen to Teen Angst , I also had to put in Camper Van Beethoven's Key Lime pie . Obviously.

Busy weekend ahead. Hope all y'all have a great one.

See what an influence the Marty/Sid/Moist dream has had on me ... BTW, leper hopeful, your post had me laughing out loud and I just keep coming back here to read it and laugh. I needed that today.

I'm throughly messing up the counter for this blog arent' I?! :-D

keysunset said...

oh no, the keysunset comment column! Seriously, The second song on the Cracker CD made me think of JD - Happy Birthday To Me - sleeping in the Civic while touring with OB:INXS.

Not that we don't enjoy the attention from the cadre of women that have populated our message board, but aren't there any guys out there? Who are we supposed to talk to about power tools or football? Are we unknowingly a mere raucous subsidiary of Casey Mega Corp?

Regis said...

Hey big homo, the mere thought of talking to you 'bout your power tools is what tends to frighten me away...

And if I need to talk to the women who are most likely to be attracted to you and Rubber -- I'll just go down to the bowling alley.

Good Day.

Sid, wasn't the whole point of this blog finding live ones for MR (Ms. Bernard aside)?

And why do men think beating the point spread is so damn hard?

How 'bout those Bears?

keysunset said...

I think there have been several offers of marriage to MR from those on this board, but he's playing hard to get. Adds to the mystique.

Besides if he keeps hanging out with mmmmMarty, he may find himself a babe after all! You've got to get yourself a Civic though, MR.

Hey Sid,

When I included Teen Angst in a Top Ten list a while back, you claimed not to know the song, and now you're quoting it?

Also, there's only one Power Tool worth talking about.

Sid F'er said...

Top ten list, 213?
How long ago was that?
I knew the song, but probably didn't recognize the title until I downloaded it years later. My CD budget was a little strained back in the mid 90's.

The Power Tool - he mostly loaded equipment.
