    A one man, one piano scratch recording of the Message? WHERE?

    I don’t know how many angry Sylvia Robinson drawings you’ve done so far, Ed, but I love every single one of them.

  3. Big Sleep says:

    Awesome,
    been waitin’ for this one.

    (Side
    note: If you don’t already know, on the Pin-Ups page, you wrote Jonh Porcellino instead of John Porcellino. Not sure if that’s been changed yet or not but I
    figure I’d mention it regardless.)

       Yeah, I definitely uploaded the wrong file to the internet. It’s fixed for the book. Sorry John P!

      • Big Sleep says:

        Right on, just makin’ sure. The
        only other typo I’ve ever noticed was it saying Super Sperm instead of
        Super Sporm in the Planet Rock one.

        • Ed Piskor says:

           The other cool thing about working with publishers is that they have an editorial staff to take care of my ineptitude with comma usage…or overusage in my case.

    Just wanted to chime in and say how much I’ve enjoyed this series and your work on it Ed. I just grabbed a copy of “Wizzywig” because of it.
