Today is Moe Lane’s birthday! He’s 39, which is still firmly in the Young Whippersnapper camp so far as I’m concerned. Go on over and, if you’re feeling generous, put a few ducats in his tip jar. Birthday boys need birthday toys, don’t you know. UPDATE: It’s Dan Collins’ birthday also. Go share a cup […]

Can I condemn Paris Hilton’s boyfriend for taking a poke at the bodyguard of a DJ who was playing craptastic techno music? I cannot. In fact, I think he was doing the world a service. If club DJs around the world knew that playing awful music could earn them a punch in the face, we’d […]
