The Weekly Music Pulse: The Saturday Swindle Sheet #71

Welcome to The Saturday Swindle Sheet. This week’s column is brought to you by the Family Guy season three DVD collection. It makes a damn good Christmas or Hanukkah or random gift, and Target has it for only $22 this week. If you can’t afford that, then get this for your friend or loved one. It’s cheaper, and fun!

This week was pretty worthless from a music news standpoint. Almost as worthless as My Chemical Romance is to music itself. Your hate mail will not change my mind, even if you point out the fact that one of the bands that came up in my iPod as I wrote this was Wham!.

It appears that since Dispute Resolution Magazine has a December 15th deadline, and I still have yet to see a handful of Word files that still need to be laid out, that my going insane is somewhat justified. I have neglected to write the last installment of Aaron Cameron’s Eminem series, and have even missed a Swindle Sheet because I’ve been buried underneath magazine layouts and my other full-time job. The latest victim to be claimed as a result of me sucking at multitasking is the music section’s Rocktable of Remarkery for the month of November. If I were to find the time to get the thing assembled and posted, it probably wouldn’t be until the middle of December, and that would be pretty shoddy. I apologize to Fingers and Widro, as well as my peers; especially the perpetually enthusiastic Tom D’Errico, who is always mega gung-ho about projects like this (just my two cents) and even bent over backwards to get a topic tank thrown together in the 23rd hour. I’m sorry. I will stop being a shitty team player very soon, guys. I promise. And Widro, feel free to give me a slight pay decrease. I deserve it.
