Blake just sent me this article about a dispute between two all-dwarf KISS tribute bans over who owns the concept.

Blake’s subject title was “I love the world.”


My grade school glam band

A friend of mine, Steve, was a big fan of KISS in grade school. I don’t know how he did it, but he once conned three others in my class to have a fake KISS concert for the grade. They put on a record and pretended to play instruments and lipsync the lyrics.

Though it must have been second or third grade, I still remember the girls convincing the “bassist” Greg (the guy playing Gene Simmons) to stick out his tongue. They properly pretended to swoon.

(I would see Steve again briefly when he transferred into my 7th grade preperatory school. Obviously, in an institution where even the Jews had to recite to Lord’s Prayer every morning, such a free spirit and natural prankster didn’t last long.)

  1. One of my favorite aspects of the LA Times article is that the photo in the top right corner has a link that reads “click to enlarge”. Ah, if only it were that easy.

    And upon clicking said link, the photo describes how the members of mini-KISS play a mean air guitar.

    I’ll give you a moment to digest this: They. Don’t. Even. Play. Music. It must be because their hands are too small – look at those guitars. They are full size guitars.
