Never Tear Us Apart

Today the new lead singer of INXS came into the music dept. at the B&N. My boss asked me, "isn't that the new lead singer of INXS?" and I didn't have any idea if it was or not so I went up and asked him if he was the new lead singer of INXS. He said, "Some days." We then exchanged pleasantries. Apparently his name is Jason. I didn't have any of my cd's with me, so I couldn't offer him one. He was with an Australian woman whose credit card was declined. I guess the coffers at team INXS are running a bit low these days. But then again, who can tell me the name of the latest INXS album? Exactly.

I'm off tomorrow, which is nice, and I have no plans, which is nice. Maybe do some laundry. Maybe try and fart around on some music if the neighbors aren't around. What I really need to do is give myself a damned haircut. It always made me laugh when I was a kid getting my hair cut and bald guys came into the barber shop looking to get a haircut, but now I understand. Sad.

I had a dream last night that I took a crap in the shower. And it became big news. They wanted to put me on some TV show about it.

My knees have been bothering me, and I must have slept on my neck funny because my neck/back's been hurting, too. I can't believe that I have to live with this body for another 95 years.

Today was Jeannie's last day working at the B&N, which can only mean one thing: she's not cool anymore.

which boss, exactly which boss, would have any clue who the new lead singer of INXS is? hmm? and why do all of the cool things happen when i'm not there? rockstars with girlfriends with bad credit! you, dan-o, have all the luck! (e'beth)

I didn't get the impression that the Australian lady was his girlfriend. She seemed more like a manager/businesswoman/keeper. Also, yes, the boss was not Derrick. Nor Cindy, Marlene, nor Nikki or Dayna. It was Brian. Although I was surprised that Brian knows who the lead singer of INXS is. That means that Brian watched the TV show 'Rock Star' at some point. Which means Brian sucks now.

What do I win?

The album is Switch. And JD/Jason Fortune just finished leading INXS on the first leg of their North American Tour which was SOLD OUT! They are now selling for the second leg and just sold out the first three rows of Radio City Music Hall at $1300 a ticket. That's right, two months of your salary for one ticket. Now who's pathetic?

Wow, some folks out there really like Jason "JD" Fortune and INXS. And I like INXS, too, but my guess is that most people are buying INXS tickets because of older material, not because of their latest album, which is indeed called 'Switch.' The prize for naming the album is a year's free subscription to this blog. And, to be fair, Jason was very nice to talk to, although he did seem to be wearing eye makeup and Brian said he was kind of an ass on the show.
