It is weirdness Bradley. I musiked with a bit of a doppelganger back in PA - i'll post the cassette cover of our one release on the Peas Kor label- we were Kafka Romance Dissolver (see Miss Manners anthology for reference). anyway his name was Gary Anderson. i called him 'the kicker' in reflection to the Steelers' PAT man. The Doppler Gang is a much better name though, cheers to weirdness!

Ahh, Snooping around at all we do. I know there were more than a couple of Sloggers who think this is all okay. I mean you have no right to privacy in public places so the Seattle Police certianly should use satalite technology when ever possible.

Why am I the only person seriously worried about Big Brother watching us on street corners and watching us from satalites?

Ok, so by now you've probably seen those pix of Russian Prez Vladimir Putin fishing shirtless, yeah?

Well, it turns out he's looking for a hot Summer f*&k buddy on Craigslist of all places:

"Russian Dictator Seeks Love - 55

I'm a nice, decent guy looking to meet another masculine bro for some hot fucking and hopefully a meaningful emotional connection. I like dogs, fishing, poisoning dissidents, and long walks on the beach. Turn offs are mean people and democracy. I hope I can meet a guy who can look past my rough exterior and see the sensitive artist underneath. I like to cuddle with a guy, gently kissing him all over his body until the morning light comes in through the window. You must be into BDSM sub/dom pain play, I'll tie you to a chair and interrogate you for hours, I'm handy with a pair of pliers.

Location: Moscow
it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests"

I would love to kiss you all over Little Putin! Some of my hobbies include living up to the standards of my personal heros Jesus Christ and Caligula. I enjoy raping powerless nations for their oil reserves. And yeah, I hate democracy too. I sorta bike but really, I am not too good at that sorta stuff. It is just for show. Dogs are cool and stuff too.

Oh who am I kidding Little Puty! I LOVE you!! God I wish it was you performing that colonoscopy on me a few weeks ago. I miss you so much! Why aren't you calling me? Laura is just for show and I keep telling you that and Condi? Well, she likes watching two guys get it on. Please call me? Love you tons!!

Stocks. Just bought 100 shares of a good firm. I love it when you guys panic, it gives me buying opportunities, cause you throw the baby out with the bathwater.
