I still have so much respect and Love for You. I'm not online as much as I used to be, life keeps me very busy. Every time I hear your music which I still listen to with a passion, I smile a little bit brighter and remember how special my time was here on this forum.
Hope all is well in your world. I'll keep checking the tour schedules.

That was a fun conversation we had. If there's a link let me know. I know it's on iTunes but I wonder if it's poster anywhere else.

Those issues of Weekly World News you just posted are ones that got published after I stopped reading it. In fact, I stopped right at the point when they started the whole "batboy" thing. But before that, they had issues that were filled with plausible material. Plausible to a 10 year old anyway. One of the last issues I bought was one that said that pyramids and a "face" discovered on Mars. And they had pictures of it. This was before anyone else reported on that. Eventually other publications did report on those peculiar images on Mars, using the same photos, which validated WWN in a lot of ways to me, but "experts" have since explained that those shapes were caused by windstorms and shit. I can't say what is or isn't true in regard to that, but the whole "batboy" stuff and everything else featured in WWN since that point made it more of an overt comic zine rather than just a mysterious curiosity with plausible stories. It just became a parody of itself. But it wasn't always an obvious joke.

ive felt the same, like i thought the publication got more ridiculous, but wondering if i just got older/smarter (or more fogged?)

like how kids can see ghosts a lot more than our taught-to-doubt eyes can see

I had a subscription to WWN right for years. Still have maybe a hundred of them tucked away in the dungeons of my house. I'd be ashamed of this, but I'm too old for shame.

While in junior high, I'd hang out at a coffee shop in my neighborhood almost every day after school and during the summer. Sometimes I'd restock the soda shelves, in return for one plain hamburger and free reign to hang around the store all day, cracking wise. I would always read Weekly World News, I thought it was better than the other tabloid rags because it contained relatively little celebrity bullshit. Like Sage, I recall that it became an obvious parody right around the debut of Bat Boy, though it's also likely that I became more wise to the ruse over the three years I spent hanging out in this coffee shop.

I was a big fan of Ed Anger's column, which was a ridiculously overblown neo-conservative editorial space. He would always have brilliant ideas, like turning high schools into prisons and mounting guns on our cars. I even had a collection of his articles published as a book. I kind of knew it was a rub, but sort of held out hope that this was an actual nutcase getting free reign to speak his piece every week in the Weekly World News. Imagine my disappointment when, many years later, I learned that the article was largely written by comic book writer and family friend Bob Greenberger.

This thread is weird in general. It started as a possibly automated reminder of fan appreciate and then was then appropriated for tabloid discussion. I don't know what's happening here, but I like it. More nonsensical threads, please.

good a place to put as any to post this. I like this concert; i wish all 13 were still online. Glad I at least ripped the audio before they were taken down by whoever.

Professional asshole kicker.

I am holding out parsing that as the more likely "friend of Reggie's family" until I am definitively told that it does not mean "friend of families in general."
