What's the difference between a dead frog in the road, and a dead trombone player in the road? The frog was probably going to a gig! Hah! Get it? Well... it took me 8 years to get it, so let me explain. When you go out hunting frogs, that is called "gigging". Gigging is bad for a frog. When you go out playing an instrument in a band for money, that is called "gigging". Gigging is good for a trombone player... but man, you gotta be good. You pretty much need a bass player and a drummer... not many people need a trombone player, so they typically don't get many gigs... Did I explain that right? Wait, let me start over...

Welcome to the lobby of the FUTURE! Luxurious automatic ashtrays, and modern green vinyl furnishings set off the shag carpeted walls. Enjoy a Rusty Nail from our cheerful bar staff (with a complimentary cheese and fruit plate before 5pm). We feature prime rib dinners every day that ends in a "y"! Remember to tip the bellhops at least 5 cents per bag. Enjoy your stay! This was written 2 years before it was published, because I didn't have a good enough upright bass sample to make it go.

Jazzy! Gumshoe-y! Mystery-y! I suck at making adjectives. Who needs adjectives anyway! I'm fine without adjectives. How fine without adjectives, you may ask? I can't say - as that would require some sort of descriptor! And I don't need descriptors in my writings... Maybe one... tiny little... NO! What am I thinking!? I refuse! I've completely had it with adjectives! Hah! Adverbs work perfectly fine! Woohoo! Adverbs! And before I get mail... adjectives killed my family, so I can go off on them all I want.
