Too bad they did not give the address of his gravesite, otherwise I might have to leave him a special present at his gravesite symbolic of his awful contributions to US politics- a bag of dog dung.

Look on the bright side: Now we have a place to dance.

Santa said...

Spiros: That is true, although I already had such a place when pompous Joey Ramone died. There's no harm in having as many places to dance as possible.

Spiros said...

You've got a beef with Joey? Why?

Santa said...

Spiros: I once saw Joey on the street on Avenue A in '93. Up until that time, I was a bit of a fan. I met him and he was truly an ungracious, pompous, and un-punk ass when people complemented him. He basically told his fans to go fuck themselves. Not a cool dude to the people that allowed him to live the dream by buying his records and seeing his shows.

Have you seen the documentary *End of the Century*? Surprisingly, only Dee Dee seems to be not an ass, even though he's clearly the most burnt.

Santa said...

Spiros: I saw parts of End of the Century but I could not bring myself to watch the whole thing. One of my fondest memories growing up was listening to Rocket to Russia. It's one thing for me to have to accept Joey was a real shithead. It was too much for me to witness the fact that all with the exception of Dee Dee should have been beaten with a frozen hamhock repeatedly for maximum justice or a personality improvement.

I think the documentary is worth watching. Yes, the guys are dicks. But the story is pretty good.
