Spamsky — Deadsky.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 10:31 pm

A big time Russian Spammer was found beaten to death in his home, and it turns out that not many people in Russia give a damn, including the Russian media.

Sending Spam is not illegal in Russia at the present time, but obviously being a spammer didn’t win Mr. Deadsky many friends.

The evidence developed to date suggests that the King of Spamsky picked up some babes at a nightclub and brought them home, only to have them slip him a Mickey. When he was asleepsky, the girls let their partners into the apartment who stole a bunch of his stuff and beat him to death.

Too badsky, that.

Thanks to Mike R. for the tipsky.

Seemed Fairly Accurate.

Apparently, one of the alternatives was not Aging Old Rocker.

You Are an Indie Rocker!

You are in it for the love of the music…
And you couldn’t care less about being signed by a big label.
You’re all about loving and supporting music – not commercial success.
You may not have the fame and glory, but you have complete control of your career.
What Kind of Rocker Are You?

Peggy Dowd.

Maureen Dowd’s mother, Peggy Dowd, died last week at age 97. Maureen Dowd lovingly writes:

Intensely patriotic, a politics and history buff, in her life she spanned the crash of the Titanic to the crash of the twin towers, Teddy Roosevelt to W. One of her big thrills came in 1990 when she went to the White House Christmas party with me and President Bush gave her a kiss. On the way home, she said to me in a steely voice, “I don’t ever want you to be mean to that man again.”

As my mom lay in pain, at 97 her organs finally shutting down, my sister asked her if she would like a highball. Over the last six years, Mom had managed to get through going into a wheelchair and losing her sight, all without painkillers or antidepressants – just her usual evening glass of bourbon and soda. [Read it all.]

I would have liked Peggy Dowd.

Although I wish the apple would have fallen considerably closer to the tree, I extend my deepest sympathy to Ms. Dowd.
