Burning in January

To help rinse the winter blues out of your hair, please to enjoy the sad melodic stylings of The Whitest Boy Alive, a band my pal T-Lo just pointed out to me:

PS If you care to scare yourself half to death, learn more about this creepy disease, Fatal familial insomnia which will kill you in 7-36 months and has no cure. But check out the snazzy symptoms you will experience before you croak:

The disease has four stages, taking 7 to 18 months to run its course:

1. The patient suffers increasing insomnia, resulting in panic attacks and phobias. This stage lasts about four months.
2. Hallucinations and panic attacks become noticeable, continuing about five months.
3. Complete inability to sleep is followed by rapid loss of weight. This lasts about three months.
4. Dementia, turning unresponsive or mute over the course of six months. This is the final progression of the disease, and the patient will subsequently die.

Wow! I think I might have a mild case of this disease because I have/had most of the symptoms. But I’ve had them for years and I’m still around. Maybe it’s just that cat virus everyone has.

Good tune. Sounds like an upbeat Joy Division. One of their songs is used in a Geico commercial. I always wondered who it was. I thought it was The Postal Service.

It could be the dreaded cat virus...or perhaps you have managed to find a cure for the dreaded fatal familial insomnia (seriously, that is some SICK shit!). you could sell the cure for top dollar!
