I was abducted by Talks-To-Herself-Lady and Serenades-Me-Guard and forced to help them record an album called “Soundtrack of the Office”

Actually I’m just a slightly preoccupied, very overworked, extremely undersexed and slightly lazy asshole, and I’ve been off being a slave to the man instead of blogging. But today, I am back.

“I have no money, no resources, no hopes. I am the happiest man alive.” –Henry Miller
