It was simply a case of the right bulbs going out at the wrong time. But passers-by couldn't be blamed for thinking a smirking prankster, or something much darker, was responsible when they looked up at the neon sign for Elmhurst Hospital in Queens, N.Y., which then displayed the ominous phrase "I'm hurt."
When The New York Times showed Elmhurst spokesman Dario Centorcelli a photo of what a missing E and S had wrought, he seemed surprised. "Oh, God, are we going to get this fixed?" he wondered.
We can only hope the hospital stays more on top of the situation when patients come in hurt and in need of fixing.
this weekend i saw the High on Fire, Converge, Mastodon and Dethklok show in San Jose.
despite making a bunch of cute skater boys frisk me in the parking lot to see if they could locate the flask, my attempt to sneak in some jameson was unsuccessful. not only was i left with no jameson but i was forced to drink a single ELEVEN DOLLAR buttwiper (my favorite beer of all time but holy crap that's expensive). that was, like, sooooo lame. so my buddy snuck back out to the car midway through the first band and refilled the flask.
here's my advice to any of you that go to San Jose for a show. the security is nice (meaning, they gave me that awesome jameson flask back after dumping out the sweet sweet whiskey inside), but more thorough than most. if you wanna hide a flask, don't stuff it down the front of your pants. instead... hide it in your shoe and as you limp toward the door you can fake a knee injury. works like a charm.
enjoy my favorite tune from mastodon... named after the most bad-ass shark of all time.
In investigating the whole Mass We Pray viral vid situation, I found this little gem.
Yahtzee was pretty angry at the package that EA sent him today, but don't worry - that was the whole point.
It seemed pretty obvious that the wooden box addressed to Yahtzee had something to do with Dante's Inferno, given that the inside of the lid read "The Fifth Circle of Hell Is Close." Members of The Escapist staff crowded around the box, eager to find out what was inside. We were somewhat bemused to discover nothing but a small burlap bundle containing safety goggles and a ball peen hammer.....
