Mary J. Blige Fails at Life
Considering that Mary J. Blige’s musical career is right in the toilet, it was pretty surprising to me to see her name mentioned in the news. I got a google news alert for the word “fur” and, with puzzlement, clicked to see what Mary J. had done (or perhaps who she had done) to get the press to care about what she’s doing. Had she been hit by a train? No, as it turns out, she’s just a devil woman and loves to brag about it. During an interview with the London Mirror, she said,
“… those PETA people don’t want to mess with me, they don’t want to throw paint on my coat because it’s not just gonna be throwing paint … Understand what I’m saying?”
OOOOOOH. We are shaking in our collective boots. We should be safe so long as we stay away from men’s bathrooms at truckstops and the “big and beautiful” section of K-Mart.
Speaking of horrible fur hags, we have a new Street Team mission, should you choose to accept it. We want you to take a whole bunch of our “I’m An Asshole I Wear Fur” stickers and put them up in creative places around town, then send us photos showing what you did. CLICK HERE to order your stickers, duder.
Our good friend from Japan, Masami Akita (better known to hipsters as noise artist Merzbow) gave us a whole stack of his CDs and a copy of his “Cruelty Free Lifestyle” book to give away. Masami is a huge PETA supporter, and always helps us out when we’re in Japan for a demo. Here’s how we’re going to do this: if you’d like to grab one of the Merzbow CDs or the book for yourself or a friend, send an e-mail to email@example.com telling us why you deserve to win. Also, someone who speaks Japanese please translate Merzbow.net for us. Much appreciated.
PS – I wish 24 was on … well, 24 hours a day. I think I’m still on the edge of my seat.
