Editors' note: Unfortunate changes in lawrence.com staffing

This seriously sucks. Phil & Gavon: I'm really sorry to hear this. I hope you find a new home that values your talents.

Ugh.

LOL Presidents

No comments so far... Maybe presidents have better senses of humor than hippies.

Oh My God it's Anvil

I didn't even know about this - and I just watched the movie last weekend. I would have loved to have been able to see them. I'm not into metal either, but that movie was great. It wasn't so much about the music as it was about Rob and Lips' friendship and their sheer dedication to their band - for almost 30 years - with no real financial success or fame beyond being a metal "musicians' band."

It sounds like the movie is helping them finally get their due. They certainly deserve it.

Top Fives of 2009

Cool stuff. The XX is definitely my favorite find of the past year. And I heard they're all around 18 years old. Wild...

Crackhead Chases Laser

I agree this is cruel beyond belief. At the same time, I still laughed a bit - until they got the poor guy arrested.

Yes, I'm a horrible person.

"A Widow for One Year" by John Irving

I totally get how you would see the overuse of writerly angst as a vehicle in his stuff. Looking at Irving's overall body of work, he tends to subscribe a little too closely to the "write what you know" adage: New England, private schools, young men/older women, wrestling, etc... I was a big fan of his after reading 'Garp' in high school and devoured everything I could get my hands on, but somewhere in the 90s it started to feel lazy. However it was through him that I discovered Vonnegut (who Irving cites as a major influence - and it fits, I think), so I appreciate that.

Life Gets In The Way

I really enjoyed reading this blog, and am sad to see you leave, but I certainly understand your reasoning. Let me/us know where you decide to relocate on these here Interwebs. I'll make sure to swing by and undermine any serious discussion with a well-placed poop joke, as that's what I do best.

Take care J - OJ
