I Knew I Liked Paste Magazine

Besides the fact that it turns me on to new music AND this months issue came w/a CD AND DVD I found this bit under LETTERS in my Aug 06 copy of Paste magazine.

BEST EVER LETTER WE'VE EVER GOTTEN FROM A READER...EVER

I was watching Johnny Cash perform "Folsom Prison Blues" on Paste DVD #21 when my seven-year-old daughter idled into the room. She wasn't much interested until he sang the line, "I shot a man in Reno / Just to watch him die." She looked at him for a second and then asked, "Is that man Dick Cheney?" That moment alone was worth my annual subscription.

That is one smart 7 year-old.

Dammit! Where's my subscription?! It got lost somewhere in the four or five moves we've made this year so far. Weh.

A random question: You've said you gotten "Mary Mary quite contrary" a bunch - does anyone ever quote Run DMC at you, or ask you "why ya buggin'"?

It is pretty scary when a 7 year is saying stuff like that. It shows that everything that is happening in the US is affecting the kids--even young ones.

Glenda- Me too but Sothis is right. We should be worried when the children are feeling it.

lukka- You know it. With two teens at home I am daily asked "why ya buggin?"
