I hear that 40 is the new 30…

  • Man, but do I hate being at the tail-end of a demographic now: 18 to mutherfrikkin’ 35. ‘Young’ associates look at you like you’re seconds away from drooling senility and a hip replacement, and ‘seasoned’ peers are opening their arms for zombie-like expressions of decrepit kinship and bladder-control brotherhood.

    Fuck that noise. Today, I shall float like a pre-pubescent butterfly, and sting like a Viagra-fuelled bee. If performing monkey number 1, 2, and 3 can make 40+ work WITHOUT a makeup artist? Then watch out world…’cause this particular primate hasn’t matured enough yet to reach the metaphorical equivalent of ‘solid food’. ;)

  • There’s been a lot of political sword rattling and cock-blocking between the US and North Korean administrations as of late, obviously focused on the PRNK’s desire for armaments of the nuclear variety. But remember, the West has always wanted to use DIPLOMACY in dealing with them. Why? Well, while many pundits consider Kim Jong-il to be nothing more than a Snickers bar packed with more nuts, they also admit that he’ssomething akin to the yappy little sidekick dog from the old WB cartoons. You remember the one? Yeah…and he had a VERY big friend – the quiet muscle who let the little bitch do the talking for him.

    I don’t think I need to spell it out for you. And I also don’t think I need to back up this position with statistics on the Dragon’s economic and military expansion over the past decade. Let’s just say – unless North Korea suddenly announces the largest hidden oil, gas, and uranium reserves on the planet – that the Yanks won’t be invading anytime soon. Wouldn’t be prudent…not at this juncture.

    So it remains a war of words. And though I’m staunchly opposed to Jong-il’s brutal and poverty-ridden regime, I can’t help but smirk when he launches the following verbal volley at the bulldog currently flanking the marionette Commander-and-Thief:

    “Cheney is hated as the most cruel monster and bloodthirsty beast, as he has drenched various parts of the world in blood.

    At least he doesn’t pull his punches, eh?

  • Just got word that the online store at Future Shop is finally getting restocked this week – hard to believe that they sold out so quickly, but I guess they only put 50 or so copies for cyber sale. So far, it looks like we’ve sold well over 300 sets in just over 3 weeks at FS, which is really great news!

    And as I mentioned in the last newsletter, if we’re somehow able to rock through 1000 before the end of June, then it’s almost an assured thing that BEST BUY (US) will make a very healthy order for stores below the 49th! So obey the ad to the right, dear Saints (if you wanna keepsake, it should be in select Canadian newspapers next week) – storm your local Future Shop en masse, scope out the HD Trailer on their mongo screens, and snap up the cheapest edition of the saintly saga anywhere on the planet.

    Just think…the harder we hit ‘em, the sooner we can stop acting like dimestore hos! (yes, yes…I’m feeling particularly saucy today :) )
