An Open Letter To The Creator of Spider Solitaire

First off, don't tell me it's random. That's a bunch of bull. When I'm looking at 47 cards, and none of them are a '7', that's carefully engineered torture.

Secondly, die. Just die, creator of Spider Solitaire. Die.

Thirdly, before you die, explain to me what happened to you as a child that warped you into thinking that plopping a 6 of clubs on my run of hearts is "fun". As I stated before, there are no '7's, creator of Spider Solitaire. Where am I suppossed to put this 6 of clubs? I can tell you where I'd like to put it, but it won't help me win the tinfoil-chew you call a computer game. Were you beaten as a child, Spider Solitaire creator? Were you neglected? Is this because Mom didn't look at that picture you drew of a horse?

I hate you creator of Spider Solitaire. You're a punk.

"Wow! The entire morning I've wasted playing this stupid game is paying off! I'm about to win....Oh look, a bunch of Aces that do me absolutely no good! Thanks, creator of Spider Solitaire! You're Aces!"

I hope you're stung by a bunch of hornets.

Art And Music

Buffalonians looking for some culture this weekend can double up with a Music and Art Combo.

Ron Hawkins, from the Lowest of the Low and the Rusty Nails, will debut his paintings and his new Album.

The Vault art gallery at 702 Main will have more than two dozen new paintings by Ron Hawkins on display Friday, November 13. The artwork includes portraits of musicians including Johnny Cash, Feist, Joe Strummer, Jeff Tweedy, Sid Vicious and Tom Waits.

On Saturday night, November 14, Ron will appear at the Allendale Theatre, 203 Allen Street to play songs from his new Album, 10 Kinds of Lonely, for the first time in the U.S.

I had a chance to interview Ron over the phone and you can listen to it through this link:
