Todd, Manly Man

August 25, 2005

Most of you probably know by now that Hyphen is an all-volunteer effort. Yup, all the writers, editors, photographers, business staff, the folks who mail your subscriptions -- they all have day jobs (if they aren't in school or in between jobs.) But some of us have better day jobs than others. Take our contributing music editor, Todd Inoue, who works by day at the San Jose Metro. OK, I know that it's not every week that an alternative newsweekly can afford to send Todd to review a bunch of spas. But still, how can we not be totally jealous?

I love this quote:"RESULT: Despite the temporary shock of a naked practitioner and the unexpected cleansing of the area between my balls and cornhole, the body scrub felt great and my skin was silky for days afterward."There's an even funnier description of this treatment before that. Can you even say "Gooch" in public? Oops, I just said it.
