    today is winona ryder’s 88th birthday 

    i know she likes to read the busblog so hi winona, i love ya. keep your chin up, shorty.

    went to the quickie mart. got a three dollar sandwich. gave the man a ten. he gave me back two bucks. i love the quickie mart so i figured, fuckit, have a $5 tip. money grows on trees.

    still havent heard from playboy yet. wtf?

    dont they know that im the assistant editor of what the LA Times called the most entertaining blog in LA?

    and i know marc brown.

    this is what i would do for playboy.com. steal the idea and i’ll kill ya. plus you wouldnt rock it as hard as i would.

    playboy.com needs a doorman, a gatekeeper, a welcome mat. a blog.

    it needs to be totally Safe For Work, which means tone down all the hoo ha. which means no boobies poking out all over. which totally means no pop-ups.

    it needs to be at playboy.com/blog and there someone, me, will write each day about the goings on throughout the playboy empire. international and domestic. there needs to be record reviews, tips for men, movie reviews, interviews with playmates past and present. there needs to be an introduction to next months lovelies. there needs to be rock.

    i imagine a black background and verdana typeface.

    i see hot people.

    there needs to be interesting current events being discussed, pornography laws, internet laws, guest bloggers, head shots, not bikini shots, but sexiness in the pictures that you could leave on your monitor as you walk away from your desk without being ashamed.

    there are many many men, i would wager, who would read the playboy blog who might not read the magazine any more and who dont ever ever ever go to the web site. and there are the real fans who read the mag but have no good reason to go to the site. so they think.

    the playboy blog will be a haven for all of those men, and the very special ladies. and it will be free.

    within the blog posts there would be links to the articles and specials going on in the web site but there will be a disclaimer next to the link that will say not safe for work. maybe there will be a red bunnyhead for those links. pink ones for the safe links.

    its all so easy.

    there will be sports talk, but not crazy amounts, just enough. there will be discussions about anna kournikova, the hilton sisters, and christina aguilera. there will be exerpts of short stories, there will be ways to subscribe to the mag, there will be ways to get merch.

    it will be a real blog for real people who like real things like the things playboy has always discussed and it will be up to its eyeballs in class.

    anyway, happy birthday winona.

    you can be a guest blogger anytime you want.
