However you may have arrived here, this is the old Not Not Silly Newsroom.

It's a long story -- hardly worth going into here -- but after this place was declared a Brownfield Site, we abandoned it for the NEW! IMPROVED!! Not Now Silly Newsroom.

Feel free to stay and read what you came here to read, but when it's time to leave go to the new place by clicking HERE.

More Notes From The Road

• South Carolina is the shredded tire capital of 'Merka;

• Dixie Chicken by Little Feat, the live version, is one of the all-time great driving tunes. Eight times in a row was overkill;

• How did I upload 10,000 tunes and forget Frank Zappa???

Michigan seems like a dream to me now. Canton? A nightmare.

Notes From The Road

Here's what I learned today:

• A smartphone is useless if the Starbucks finder doesn't work;

• Sixteen hours of tunes and only one clunker;

• There are some really shitty drivers out there;

• I can't drive forever.

Taking a rest break for some shut eye.

The Mark Koldys-Johnny Dollar Comment of the Day

A thread from Johnny Dollar's CABLE NEWS TRUTH sewer on my birthday
The Flying Monkey Squad™ is at it again. 

The Flying Monkey Squad™ has, once again, started with an observation and, working backwards, created another Bogus Conspiracy Theory™. Then Johnny Dollar, aka Mark Koldys, allows the use of his sewer about CABLE NEWS TRUTH to disseminate their bullshit.

Wash, rinse, repeat. It's the same old pattern I've put up with for the last year of obsessive cyber-stalking by The Flying Monkey Squad™.

It's so nice that The Flying Monkey Squad thinks I am important enough to continue to cyber-stalk. You'd have thought li'l ol' me wouldn't be worth their time, but they just can't quit me.

Who is obsessed? They claim it's me. I say it's them. Who you gonna believe?

Take a look: Ashley Graham, aka Grayhammy, is quoting my emails from 10 years ago and making unfounded assumptions about it. He also quotes an exchange from somewhere with Johnny Dollar, aka Mark Koldys, from 2011. Check out that obsession!!! The NSA could use a few pointers from Ashley Graham on obsessive cyber-stalking.

Yet, this is his latest feeble attempt to discredit me.

That MoFo Grayhammy has proven once again that he simply doesn't understand how a nom de plume works. I created the character of Aunty Em Ericann SEVERAL YEARS before I was approached to write for NewsHounds. When I started writing for NewsHounds, I simply kept the nom de plume. Using a nom de plume to write under is not a lie, just ask A.A. Fair. In fact, in today's political climate it might be wise to use a nom de plume, right (he asks of the piece of shit hiding behind the sock puppet) Grayhammy?

Les Paul ► The Man Who Made Rock and Roll Possible

Not Now Silly celebrates the birth of the man that made it all possible: Lester William Polsfuss, better known as Les Paul.

Les Paul didn't invent the guitar, which falls into the family of chordophones.Those go back several thousands of years to India and China. Modern descendants include the lute and violin, not to mention the guitar as we now know it.

Les Paul didn't even invent the electric guitar. That happened in 1931 when George Beauchamp invented a magnetic pick-up for the Ro-Pat "Frying Pan" lap steel guitar. Les Paul didn't get around to inventing his solid body electric guitar until 10 years later and even then it was just a 2x4 with the electronics hidden inside. It was so ugly, and Les received so many negative comments on it, he disguised it by hiding it in a dummy guitar.
