Methadone is used in the treatment of alcoholism...that is somewhat ironic isn't?

Well, that was, um, depressing?

Three cheers for Muddy Waters who passed away while sleeping. Way to show up the rest of 'em!

It seems death by old age doesn't accompany the rock star profession. Makes you glad you picked yours, yes?

I always told 'em "no" when the pushers offered me methadrone.

Does it make you happy to know that I listened to all of these? Van napped and I sat on my computer and went through all of them as I flitted around the internet.

Haven't you heard the conspiracy theories? Kurt Cobain was really murdered and set up to look like suicide. Courtney even hired a P.I. to investigate.
