So despite all your bitching and moaning about this or that issue, let's face it: You haven't gotten off your ass to volunteer or do good since your parents made you rake leaves for old people when you were in high school. Lucky for you then that you have been given the opportunity to both do good and be entertained.
Abel Charrow pledged to run six marathons in six months to raise money for the Los Angeles chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. That's 157.2 miles in half a year, which I guarantee you is more than you've run in the last decade. (Evidently the fate of the first marathon runner has not worked as a deterrent for poor Abel)
But destroying his knees to destroy cancer isn't enough; Nay, Abel has organized a rockin' benefit concert at the funky Bootleg Theater. With performances by Kiev, The Outdoors, The Cotillionaires, Fatty Dearest, and Wil Donegan and the Artests, there is some definite funkitude happening.
Well, you say, I like both music AND fighting cancer. But you're cheap. My, then, do I have good news for you! How much will this night of dancin' and fundraisin' cost you? $20? $15? $10? Nay, good reader, for $8 you can tackle cancer, support something positive, and shimmy until you can shimmy no more.
Get out there. Live long. And prosper.
