Labor Day – Stupid Nonsense Holiday

Acadia Einstein

For me, Labor Day has always been a source of anguish.  The end of summer.  The realization that having a holiday on Monday makes it so you have to go to work hung over on Tuesday.  The train accidents.  All of it generally rolls into a big messy ball of pain.

And this Labor Day is especially painful, cause all the marathons on TV suck.  I did all my outside activities already and now I am stuck with a choice of watching either Dirty Jobs or some other crap I don’t care about.  The only thing that has held my interest at all is the eighty hours of the 80’s on VH1 Classic.  It may not have a plot or any continuity, but it has .38 Special.  And that’s good enough for me.

Take a look at this video – it pretty much has everything.  Not only is it a good song, but it has some sweet white guy overbite dancing.  Have a happy Labor Day and, for God’s sake, stay off the trains.

I have run the site since 2005. And I have to say I am pretty damn proud of it. I wrote the book Whalewolf (sold on and am not even close to tired so I am just going to keep going. I was born in Portland, Maine and I currently live in New York and Charlotte, North Carolina. I keep hoping that at some point all these weird rebels are gonna say: "SURPRISE!" and act normal. Eight years and counting....

    At least it’s a paid holiday…

    I had to work it and it sucked. On a better note, 38 Special and Molly Hatchet are playing the state fair in Perry, Georgia next month!
