9:40 AM -- I don't watch much TV but I had the tube on last night while I was prepping some CTIA photos at the hotel and an ad for a cure for "restless leg syndrome" -- or RLS -- came on. What on earth is that? I mean I tap my foot all the time, is that RLS?
I don't think it really matters anyway. Sounds like the side effects of the cure are worse than the disease. The disclaimer warned that the medicine might cause a desire to gamble or "other strong urges."
Hey doc, that stuff stopped my leg twitching but I can't afford another prescription because I lost it all on the slots in Atlantic City!
— Dan Jones, Restless Editor, Unstrung
Dan is to hats what Will.I.Am is to ridiculous eyewear. Fedora, trilby, tam-o-shanter -- all have graced the Jones pate during his career as the go-to purveyor of mobile essentials.
But hey, Dan is so much more than 4G maps and state-of-the-art headgear. Before joining the Light Reading team in 2002 he was an award-winning cult hit on Broadway (with four 'Toni' awards, two 'Emma' gongs and a 'Brian' to his name) with his one-man show, "Dan Sings the Show Tunes."
His perfectly crafted blogs, falling under the "Jonestown" banner, have been compared to the works of Chekhov. But only by Dan.
He lives in Brooklyn with cats.
