After a Fashion
Peek into the future of death! At least that's what your Style Avatar calls it. While you're at it, peek into the future of a cool event or two, coming to a club near you.

MORTAL THOUGHTS: Be sure to drop by www.funeraldepot.com for a peek into the future of death. Perhaps you'd fancy your coffin to be cardboard-brown and stamped with "Return to Sender"? There's no reason to be buried in one of those tired old caskets that everyone else has. Let your casket truly reflect what was important in your life: sports. Imagine: "This Art Casket® captures the tradition of the Razorback fan!" Or better yet, the maroon model: "Expressive of strong, lifelong traditions, this tribute to Texas A&M is meaningful to all Aggies." Why wait until you're dead to enjoy it? Buy one for every member of your family now!
NOTES FROM BMI: Our friend Hanna Pantle of BMI reports to us from the BMI Pop Awards about the adoring crowd as Paul Simon performed "Slip Sliding Away" at the end of the tribute to him. Joss Stone ditched her shoes the entire night, running around barefoot. Glamorous Yolanda Adams appeared in a floor-length beige, tan, and brown dress; she is absolutely gorgeous, over 6 feet tall. She sang "Bridge Over Troubled Water," which brought the entire room to its feet, including an enthusiastic Paul Simon. She was absolutely spectacular both appearancewise and vocally. A truly amazing singer. Maroon 5 sported suits. Lil Jon took his pimp cup with him everywhere he went (it is solid gold) and handed out cans of his Crunk!!! energy drink to all the attendees. At 100 milligrams of caffeine and a healthy dose of horny goat weed, not only does it keep you up, but it supposedly has aphrodisiac properties. Crunk on that Fashion awards go to Brian Wilson with his suede Western shirt that was reminiscent of a Bob Wills shirt. Suits, suits, and more suits on the rock bands Mario Winans was sporting an incredible silver and diamond cross.
