UPDATED: Listening to sad bastard music with Dan Hamilton
KTRV Channel 12 anchor Dan Hamilton, who turns out is a Herb Alpert fan and used to play trumpet, stopped by the Laid Off Loser Fortress of Solitude today to do a piece for tonight's Fox News at Nine, which, true to the name, airs at 9 p.m.
He interviewed me about Laid Off Loser and we listened to Belle and Sebastian on the hi-fi. Neither one of us danced.

Okay, deep down I know I'm not a loser — nor is anyone else who loses their job. But getting laid off, even if it was based on tenure and the economy has gone all Titanic on us, well, it's hard not to feel like getting cut from the JV baseball team all over again. Plus I'm horny for alliteration. And I thought it was funny, especially after Googling "Laid Off Loser" and a link came up that had something to do with "a shirt covered in Cheetos." It might come to that.
