This showed up on my Facebook news feed this morning with the picture (including what looks like children’s handwriting of the word “plane”), the heading “Courtney Love thinks she’s found Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.” It was posted under “The Onion via the A.V. Club.”

My brain skipped right over the “A.V. Club” part and I totally did think it was an Onion article because, c’mon, there’s no way this could be a real story. Right?

Well I’ll be damned.

Cool! Just down the road. I know C-Ville well.

Tom – do you live in Richmond?? Just caught your reference to central Virginia and last week’s random-ass snowstorm.

Me too, man. I feel like that one frequently gets overlooked, and I can never understand why.

One of my favorite graffitis I saw from last year was “‘FORGIVE KANYE.” I like to think there are enough happy vibes at Bonnaroo that people will have moved on.

At least I hope so.

I know. I don’t know how I feel about that.

I think Editor’s Choice is a real honor. Top rated is comment is like commercial success; Editor’s Choice is like critical praise.

I know a lot of people hate on the Eagles, and I’m not saying that I’m a fan (I’m not), but isn’t Hotel California a good song, at least? I’ve always really liked it.

This is more like deli meat. Like a thinly sliced pastrami. Maybe even just a chicken salad.

Thank you, Ben. I was starting to get worried that I was going to have to type something lengthy.
