The Totally Awesome Fest rumor mill is beginning to grind


Speaking of Totally Awesome Fest, I’ve just agreed to host some kind of walking tour of the various event sites on the evening of Monday, April 21. So be sure not to schedule anything else that night, OK?

Oh, and I haven’t talked with event organizers yet, but, given that this will be the 10th Totally Awesome Fest, I’m thinking that another formal press conference might be called for.

As for Manhole, I’m sorry to break it to all the schoolgirls in the audience, but I doubt they’ll be back. Once I threatened legal action over their unsanctioned use of my image, they scattered to the winds. No, I don’t think we’ll ever see the likes of Leggs, Doc, and Hollis around these parts again. They’ve burned too many bridges… not to mention mascots.

    The thought of young girls screaming at the thought of Manhole like they’re the 1964 Beatles really appeals to me.

    I also herd the members of Manhole individually recorded their parts to cassette. Sent the cassettes to Patrick, where then Patrick will play these tapes in sync, to create a Manhole set.

    It is all rumors though.

    I heard a rumor that Mark Maynard invented Manbook to advertise his face t-shirts just like that horrible band Malcolm McLaren invented to advertise his store Sex.
