'If you have bad plastic surgery, it looks like you were brought up poor in L.A. and didn't make it. If it's good, you just look like somebody else' — John Waters


I was gonna post this as a bookofjoe MoneyMaker™ on the grounds that a penny saved is better than a penny earned — because you don't have to work to save a penny.

Which, by the way, is the only thing of value my dad ever said.

For what that's worth.

pamphlet of joe — by Flautist


I've said it before and I'll say it again: the best stuff by far comes from you.

Me, I'm only a placeholder — not even the co-pilot.

Full disclosure: pamphlet of joe is still in alpha which is why you haven't seen it before.

Real soon now, is the word I get from out back in the skunk works.
