Hey, you smell like meat, dude

Not only is it a gimmick, but it's a particularly foul one. Thanks to Burger King's new body spray, you can now smell like a hamburger. The chain describes it as "the scent of seduction with a hint of flame-broiled meat." Good luck with that.

All quiet on the blogging front

It's been quiet on the blogging front, I know. Don't get me wrong, I've been enraged by a number of matters related to both pop culture and world events, but I've been short on time these last couple of weeks to rant about them on the internet.

It's almost Christmas and December has been whizzing by me at unprecedented speeds. I feel like I'm standing on the platform at a train station watching the behemoths roll past at blurring speeds. I guess that's what a lot of my life feels like, but I'm okay with that. I just do my best to keep up.

I've also been immersed in all things New Order... I'm playing a cover set of their songs for The Capital's annual Christmas event on Thursday and it's been a rush trying to get everything done in time. Thankfully, I had some help this year and it looks like things are turning out well. I think we'll be able to play a 7-song set, which is the longest I've ever been able to pull together for one of these shows.
