    happy super bowl saturday rock fans of life 

    BobD: I’ve been offered a fantasy basketball trade of Corey Maggette, Zyguneris Igaluuskis and Mike Conley (from a team called Yum Yum Donutz!) for Jason Terry and Andres Biedrin. Should I accept the trade? Why or why not?

    z is back but who knows for how long. maggettes points are going to be affected by moped ellis’s return, meanwhile jason terry is having a career year. give away your third best player for magette and z.

    gd: ? eco on the environment not eco on the eyes.

    well first i was gonna go to vegas. then this girl told me about this party happening today then the cougar and clipper girl decided they wanted to have super bowl parties then i realized i had to return my laptop to best buy before it was too late. might already be too late. then i got really sleepy and went to bed early. then i woke up after a bad dream and got scared, so i guess its good i didnt go.

    j05h: Can it make a sound?

    yes but only cats can hear it.

    Ian Sutherland: Could/should a 45 year old white male lawyer from the Canadian prairies that just happens to be in Palm Springs at the right time get tickets to Coachella?

    should, yes. could? seems to me that there are two sorts of demographics who would like it the most: the kids who would really love “camping” out on the polo fields with their high school friends, and the adults who can afford a jacked up palm springs weekend. book a hotel asap, and wait for coachella to announce the vip three day passes. shade, short beer lines, celebs, way better (air conditioned) bathrooms, and a pretty good view of the main stage. save up, then pay up, then go. bring sunscreen.

    Sharp: How is it that The Killers managed to get their names the same size as Paul McCartney? Do people really miss Joy Division that much?

    girls love the killers. be happy the text size of the killers is that big.

    Linda: I am flying in to LA next Friday for the weekend can I stay with you?

    yes but youd be better off staying at the free hotel. the one thats free. and has a hot tub. and has the you, know, clean comfortable bed. help the economy. we will party, have no fear.

    sass: Suggest 3 occupations I could feasibly get into if I move to LA considering the current unemployment rate?

    running the american apparel blog, exotic modeling, being the lead blogger of the playboy blog, being lcs new bff, starring in an mtv reality game show, dressing up as lucy lui in charlies angels 2

    Matt Welch: What’s your opinion on the octuplets stimulus plan? Are you the father of Paul McCartney? Do you think Obama needs a haircut?

    i think all women who have six children under the age of eight and lives with her parents should go ahead and have octuplets. especially when they want one more girl. ive wanted a new tv in my living room for over a year now, so i should probably just go buy eight of em while im out. i was gonna pick up a keg for clipper girls super bowl bash but i think i’ll just pick up eight since im there. see what hope does to people? obama needs to get a power fro.

    YesMan: Any comment about the cuts as reported in the Times?

    occasionally people are forced to show their true mettle, sometimes thats when the magic happens.

    M@: I really miss the stories of the xbi and chopper one and Anna. Btw, did you see my email?

    i miss those tales too. yes i saw your email. id love to have a drink as long as im in town and not in the midst of something insane.

    Unsilent Majority: Do you have a favorite The Arcade Fire song and what is it?

    there are so many. but because i love drama and dramatics in my popular music, id have to say my body is a cage, from the neon bible. it just keeps on growing and getting richer and bigger and stronger even when its pretty much up there it gets grander.

    dont ask me what it all means though.

    Jordan Catalano: Am I going to get laid off soon? And if so, how am I supposed to pay my rent and stuff? Any wisdom/advice is MUCH obliged!

    the percentages say no. even though everywhere you hear about 10,000 being cut there, 5,000 there, the odds are still pretty good that you’ll not be laid off. i have a friend whose company gave them a 20% salary cut, but they dont have to work on fridays. that would be pretty interesting.

    timmay!!!!!: 1) have you seen my 25 things note on facebook? 2) is it ok that i tagged you? 3) how are you coping with the frequent LA Times bloodletting? 4) does the LA Times copy desk allow Pig Latin in the newspaper? 5) when – and how – did Public Enemy’s font size get so small?

    1) of course 2) i would have said no, but someone else tagged me too. 3) prayer and fellowship 4) it’s a pretty surprising desk. yesterday i asked about “fart”, and off the top of his head the main guy said, its been used 12 times. my guess on pig latin is yes 6) 1997

    Kris: How do they get the caramel in the Caramilk bar? And does anyone actually care?

    David: What the hell is that thing?

    that one things hope, the others change.

    dave: in these times of economic depression and woe, what’s your drink of choice? rum? absinthe? old grand dad? On that note, what do you think of people who don’t drink alcohol at all? Scared of letting loose, or simply their choice?

    2008 was all about whatever was unusual on tap. but now that i take the subway more, im finding myself enjoying rum based tropical drinks

    Jay: Should Jays fans be happy that Dempster signed with the Cubs, instead of his second choice north of the border?

    the number one problem that the blue jays have is that they are in the american league east. now that the expos have said adios theres no reason for the jays to feel forced in staying in the junior circuit. move away from the dark side and your future will be beautiful.

    TJ: I have a blogger account yet can not blog from my I phone. Why is this? Sometimes I have important thoughts on stuff when I am not near my macbook yet I can not blog them. This upsets me.

    you can blog from your iphone. just open safari. type in blogger.com. insert your user name and password. only thing you cant do easily is add photos. just add those later. your iphone can most definately help your genius get realized.

    bloopy: do you ever regret lagging on answering the questions ‘cuz then they keep piling up?. . .

    regrets, i have a few. but none include giving the good readers of the busblog some extra time to ask pressing questions of the day.
