Gome of the Week
Just because you have colored hair and kind of look like a guy does not mean you have any punk credibility. And don't remind us that you were in a punk band in high school. Everybody was in a punk band in high school, and you know what? They all sucked.
Having the lady from 4 Non-Blondes write your record for you is sooooo not punk rock. Let's get the party started.
This Week's Link That's Probably Not That Great
Small Wonder - Vicki and the whole gang enjoy robotic adventures and mishaps. Some of you may not remember this show. If you don't, I think you can download episodes here and enjoy them in the comfort of your own home. Kind of creepy.
This Week's Movie You've Probably Never Seen
I've use the word "sucky" before, but is has never been so appropriate as it is right now. Take heed, it's Megaforce, starring none other than Barry Bostwick, the guy who plays the shithead mayor on Spin City. This is one of those futuristic thriller movies, but they must have run into some serious budget issues, because they spend most of the film riding around empty desert landscapes in cheap looking dune buggies.
And, apparently in the future, people are really into headbands. And motorcycles. And beards. You might want to get really really high before sitting through this one.
Did I mention dune buggies? They rule!
This Week's Record You're Probably Not Listening To
Park-Like Setting - School Day 2, Garbage Day 4 (2001)
mcenroe and the gang have done it again. He got together a couple of his boys, including the infamous John Smith, and they made a great hip-hop record that comes straight outta Canada and won't ever get the respect it deserves.
No idea what the title refers to, but the rhymes are tight and bitter and come right from the hearts of guys who know they're just as good as other rappers but won't get the love because they don't wear gold chains and they actually want to have girlfriends.
This Week's Hip New Slang Word or Phrase
Gomeosis - Clearly derived from the word gome, this is the state of sickness that the gome must live with.

Usage - "Dude, that guy singin' the 'roke right now is severely weak."
"Dude, his Tasmanian Devil sweatshirt tipped me off to the advanced case of gomeosis that he is clearly suffering from."
