"Today is Joe Strummer's birthday! There's a bookseller on my street and the guy is totally full of shit, right? I have spent my entire rent there and he never cuts me a deal. He'll say, 'For you? An even four!' as though his books are ever anything like $3.17. Anyway. He likes to tell these bullshit stories and in one of them his old band is opening for The Clash at some Connecticut university and he goes and says to Strummer, 'How does it feel to be totally full of hot air' or some nonsense like that and what's worse is he claims that years later looking like he does now which is way different than he did then...he runs into Mick Jones outside Bleecker Bob's and he says Mick says to him, 'Hey! Aren't you the one who told off Strummer in 1982 at UConn' or whatever his story is and then says, 'We all always wanted to say that but loved the money too much!' Come on! What are you, high? He always has the books I want, though..."
