Sad Days indeed!

Two legendary institutions have passed.   The Associated Press is reporting that Hilly Kristal, the founder of legendary nightclub CBGB, has passed away after a long battle with lung cancer.  He was 75. 

For those who don’t know, CBGB was arguably the ‘garden of Eden’ for early punk rock; a small “hole in the wall’ establishment where bands like the Ramones, Blondie, Patti Smith and the Talking Heads all once took the stage.  CBGB was closed in 2006 after being evicted from it’s home of 33 years but it was rumored that Kristal was looking to open a Las Vegas version.   

Hilly, thanks for the use of your stage, man!

On a less serious note,  the Weekly World News has published it’s last issue this week.  Billed as ‘the world’s only reliable newspaper’, WWN gave us 28 years worth of alien abductions, bigfoot paternity issues and of course, BATBOY!  Parent company American Media Inc. has said the web presence will be maintained (doesn’t say how long tho!) but the print version’s last issue was August 27. 

Now when I wait in line at Walmart, what the hell am I gonna look at !?!
