Rumors. Gotta love them. Pretty sure Alice Cooper won't be able to make it to Kipling this weekend though. A "pre-planned world tour" or something like that. That's what I get for trading with rock stars. But, I just found out that Leslie the "person who made the Alice Cooper trade possible" will be here, so that rules. Looks like almost nearly every "one red paperclip trader" will make it to Kipling, and rumor has it that "the" red paperclip will be in da house. Literally. And yes, that's about the only time I can say ever, in my entire life, say "in da house" without sounding like an absolute moron.
I just checked the Alice Cooper petition. 10953 signatures and going strong. If it hits 22222 signatures by New Years Day I will walk to the printing shop here in Kipling, print the entire thing out, stuff it in a backpack, and proceed to hitch-hike all the way to New York City where the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame offices are located and deliver it in person.
And yes, you can quote me on that.
Da house is sweet, but after this weekend I'll be ready to do whatever it takes to get The Coop in da hall.
