Putting the 'ass' in the classics. Celebs, music, media, opinions and more.


I have a contest and it includes a prize for the winner.

Thanks to some help from jjones (and feedback from many of you), NJK is undergoing its third redesign.

Above is where we stand. But, I need your help with a tagline that captures the site/blog in one or two succinct, memorable sentences.

Anonymous, otherwise known as ILoveJacksonBrowneSoMuch ... ThatMyBrotherHasAHaircutJustLikeHim, suggested a contest to name the tagline. He even took it a step further and submitted the first entry.
  • NotJackKerouac - Bankston's Blog

The Prize: a FREE NJK t-shirt with the new logo and tagline.

Please submit all entries through the 'post a comment' tool. A winner will be named in the near future. Thanks in advance for your help.

Hey anon, I've got my own site--just haven't got it ready to go yet. I need an intern to do all my dirty work....

Here's your friggin' sentence, Triple J:

I shambled after as I've been doing all my life after people who interest me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!"

Oh, I know that. But it did sum a lot up.

Brilliant. I've learned a lesson - drink less, think about baseball.

Anyway, here's another entry (in poem form) submitted from words, in order, from various posts.

Dirty, exploding, Kerouac covers
Beat off the road
Shots, too early

Brooklyn to Venice
Austin charm
Life gets shorter

Mind and ass sits in a madhouse
Meow, say nipple

Take ointment


Ok ... so we continue.
