Yes, people, I am spit-shining the year-end installment of Whereâ€™s The Street Team? for Magnet Magazine, and what follows is myÂ original intro. It sucked! My editors served me!! They are in bold!!
I started writing this column in early 2003, making this the fourth year-end installment of Whereâ€™s The Street Team?. Nobody celebrates four years of anything, unless itâ€™s sobriety, marriage or a killing spree. Itâ€™s not my point to recall the anniversary theme of last issueâ€™s column; itâ€™s my point to state that coming up with a theme inside of a theme for the fourth time can be a little tough. So, with that on the table, I really have no idea what I was thinking when making the following assemblage, other than the fact that all of it happened in 2007. Oh, and Iâ€™ve just come to the realization that this intro would have been best saved for the next year-end issue. People actually do seem to make note when things happen perpetually for five years. Happy Holidays. (THIS INTRO DOESNâ€™T REALLY ADD ANYTHING TO THE PIECEâ€¦ JUST KINDA SPINS ITS WHEELS. WOULD BE BETTER IF IT JUST TOUCHED ON SOME TOPICS BRIEFLY AND MADE SOME QUICK JOKES INSTEAD OF BEING SELF-REFERENTIAL.)
