Ecce Spam

Spam: I do not like it in a box, I do not like it with an ox. I do not like it in the air, I do not like it anywhere. Not even when it comes from Knits G. Bacchanal at, Largess O. Sperm at, Fizzle H. Entrench at, or Loudliest O. Bespeak from

I don’t like it even when it bons it mots.

    and i thought professional wrestling was the poor man’s opera.

    hey Linus, is HO band Marwood gonna play that benefit at the Knit on 5/2? my band is playing at it, and we got a list of the other bands and i believe marwood is on it.

    I think but am not sure that Marwood is doing that show. We don’t handle their bookings; their management does that, and we find out what they’re up to about when you do. They’re listed on the Knit site, so that may be something you can count on.
