i have three g-mail invites that i can send out.


and since my carpel tunnel is ridiculously painful tonight

and since the lakers are going to tie this series up 1-1

and since i will be at my true love’s condo on wilshire

i figured that i should give the gift of gmail to you, my loyal readers

but how would i know who wants it?

so in these comments please either

1) tell me why you deserve/need/must-have the coolest free email service of all time

2) tell me what you will give me in return for the coveted gmail invite

3) tell me what you will give someone else if you get the invite from me


4) make an audblog post on your blog that doesnt suck.

tomorrow we’ll figure out how to pick the winners.

good luck!

today is jeff solomon’s 56th birthday

destined to be the first jewish california governor, jeff instead chose to play bass for the best band in all of hollywood, tsar.

probably the nicest man you will ever meet, i have had the great good fortune of being jeff’s friend for about 13 years.

we’ve been in business together, we’ve written front-page news together, and he’s fixed my computer on many occassions.

the busblog would not exist with out him. period. (and os.)

this year he became a proud pappa, last year we threw this suprise party for him, and hopefully next year you’ll all see him accept his first of many grammys.

happy birthday to one of my very best friends, jeff s. who rocks
