Salsa In The Living Room?!

This is why Am New York is dumb.

Because in today's "celebrity" birthdays paragraph, they mentioned Gonzalo "Gonz" Martinez De La Cotera from the band Marcy Playground. But AM New York did not mention Norman Cook (The Housemartins or, more notoriously, also known as Spike Jonze co-conspirator Fatboy Slim) having a birthday today.

Who the fuck does that?! If you're going to mention a musician in your stupid purile celebrity birthday thing, why not go with the one that the avearge dope who reads it may actually recognize?

The only reason I even read the damned thing was that it was free on the table at the deli when I sat down to have my everything bagel & iced coffee. Later, the stupidity of it popped back into my head and after 3 seconds of internet research, I found out that Mr. Cook had a b-day today as well.

I guess what I'm saying is, when do I get a job at AM New York now, looking up inane shit that's fit to print?
