When Grunge Music Icons are Forced to Find Corporate Jobs

When their musical careers end, alternative bands from the 1990’s are forced to find office jobs to make ends meet.  The transition from angst-ridden rock star to corporate employee doesn’t always turn out well for these icons of grunge.

Supervisor: Any chance you can cover that late meeting for me today?
Radiohead: Whatever makes you happy.  Whatever you want.  You’re so very special.  I wish I was special.
Supervisor: You are special.
Radiohead: But I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo.  What the hell am I doing here?  I don’t belong here.

Sigmund Freud: Your desire to get in touch with me while I am away from my desk could belie a deeper issue.  Please consider giving a truer account of your motivation rather than engaging in grandiose self-deception.  If you just have a work-related question, that is fine too.  After all, sometimes an email is just an email.

Yours,

I Went Black and I’m Never Going Back

It was an accident. I didn’t mean to go black last week, as I found myself in a momentary state of confusion, adrift and insecure about where my life was taking me.

The Unredacted Tweets of Bridget Bishop

Bridget Bishop was the first individual to be found guilty of practicing witchcraft in Salem, Massachusetts, in 1692.  On June 10th of that year, she was hanged.  Her tweets leading up to her untimely death were redacted as part of national security.  326 years later, the House Intelligence Committee has released the original, and un-redacted tweets.

As evidenced in her January 4th, 1692 tweet, the year started out alright for Mrs. Bishop, relatively speaking.

The Betrayal of Mr. Belvedere

mr-belvedere-tv-9984 (1)

Mr. Belvedere was not the kind and warm individual that he appeared to be on television. You may remember the Owens’ butler as a kind and gregarious fellow; a man of impeccable British honor, helping a suburban Pittsburgh family navigate the rigors of 1980s life. But beneath that mustache there lay a darkness. Continue reading “The Betrayal of Mr. Belvedere”
