One Boy's Trash....

"Do You Really Want To Punish Me?"

Boy George, former lead singer of 80's group Culture Club, began his new court-ordered community service gig on Monday, sweeping the trash off the sidewalks of New York. And true to form, it took Boy George less than an hour for the singer to get into an arguement with the media.

"You think you're better than me?" he yelled at the group of photographers and reporters, "Go home. Let me do my community service." Although this was very hard to hear over the constant flashing of cameras, the snickering of photographers, and the musical chants of "Comma, comma, comma, comma come and cu-lean me up!" from smart-ass New York bystanders.

"These gloves will ruin my manicure, dammit!"

The singer was ordered to spend five days working for the Department of Sanitation after pleading guilty in March for falsely reporting a burglary at his lower Manhattan apartment. Officers responded to the call, but found no burglar. Unfortunately for Boy, they found cocaine in his apartment instead. Whoops!!!

Boy - whose real name is George O'Dowd - petitioned the court to spend his community service time by helping teenagers make a public service announcement. The judge turned that request down. He also proposed to the court that he hold a fashion and makeup workshop. The judge laughed in his face.

O'Dowd also said he felt it would be "more useful" to stage a charity concert rather than spending his time "prancing around in a park". Once again, the judge preferred the prancing.

Our advice to Boy: "Don't do the cocaine if you can't clean the drains"

"Hey, Boy! You missed a spot!"

Kiss And Make Up

"We're Not Gonna Take It
No, We Ain't Gonna Take It...
Oh, wait...that's Twisted Sister!"

Nearly 200 irate Kiss fans showed up in full quiet riot gear this past weekend at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio to protest the ongoing snub of refusing to nominate their boys into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It was a peaceful demonstration, and not a very effective one, since the nomination decisions are made in New York, not Cleveland.

Coming from as far away as California, the Kiss Army marched and carried signs, some with painted faces in black-and-white to resemble Kiss band members, and some with just your normal acne.

For nearly a full half-hour, the kids were not all right and demonstrated accordingly that their favorite band, formed more than 30 years ago, has not been admitted to the Hall of Fame, even though it has been eligible since the late 1990s. Artists become eligible for induction 25 years after the release of their first record, according to the museum's rules.

A museum spokesman said it was the first demonstration by fans seeking to have a group inducted. "Uh, The foundation that selects inductees is based in New York City, not at the museum." Obviously, this Kiss Army is not being all that it can be.

"Am I At The Right Rally??!!!"
