FOOS FRIENDLY

Posted By on Tue, Sep 25, 2007 at 5:26 PM

Four more "Terrible" Ted e-mails that we didn't post below: Bill -- You are obviously biased in your opinion of Ted Nugent. You claim to like hunting but are upset by it? I think you shouldn't drink the bong water. It's bad for you. Drop the joint and pick up...

BETTER TO BURN OUT...

Posted By on Mon, Sep 24, 2007 at 12:12 PM

It turns out that the one-year anniversary extravaganza hosted by the Michigan-centric rock website Just Haircuts and Jackets this past Saturday night (Sept. 22) at Ypsilanti's Elbow Room, previewed here several weeks ago, also served as a swansong for the much-beloved music blog.
