Quote/Picture/Video week continues with a salacious topic: rumors.
I have Social Disease. I have to go out every night. If I stay home one night I start spreading rumors to my dogs.
My Dad always gets on my case for being too negative, especially in my writing. Honestly, I try to find stuff I can say nice things about. Two problems with that: it's easier to rip people and there's a lot of stuff worth ripping. Maybe I am as arrogant as some of my friends think I am. Stop the presses.
Most quotes floating around about rumors are negative about them (“rumors are carried by haters, spread by fools, and accepted by idiots” is a typically trite example). Who would want a friend like Warhol, who revels in rumors so much that he tells his dog if he stays home for one night?

Close your eyes, hang your head until the fog rolls away
I also like the ultimately positive message of the song (“it's a-comin', a brand new day”).
