I continually strive to make you cooler

You're probably down with Mos Def and you probably dig dub. And if you don't like either it's probably because you haven't listened to them. Max Tannone did you a favor and put them together. Download the album here. You'll be cooler.

Not to ignore the current post topic, but you can't say enough about how weird the Danzig video for Mother is. The song is way bad-ass, and the video couldn't be lamer. It starts with a homosexual vibe (shirtless guitarist) and then just becomes strange, as Glenn Danzig's mug stares at you like a cross between a young Roman Polanski and Ashton Kutcher. Any generic late 80's metal imagery would've sufficed. His shadow face just looks like they're trying too hard. Another funny note is that the video is pretty timeless, with one enormous exception. it's black and white and the guitarist and Glenn look pretty generic. But then they pan to the metal sluts. The girls look like cast-offs from Warrant's Cherry Pie video. Hilarious and ridiculous.

TR said...

And if you're wondering if that's a request to have a Youtube clip of Cherry Pie appear on these pages, we'll, you might be right.

But don't get fancy and put Uncle Tom's Cabin up there. Nobody needs to know the secrets of the bodies in the wishing well.

Is there some rule that middle-aged cheese rockers have to wear black bandanas to cover up their eroding hairlines?

And I can't believe that I managed to embed an audio player and all you guys can talk about is Warrant.

Dan said...

just took off my bandana

TR said...

To be fair, it's just me talking. And Teej indulging me.

Dave said...

zoltan, that audio player is awesome-- it even worked at school. but i really want to see the danzig video and that is not playing. that song was a favorite in the lammie house back in 1991 or so.

trivia question: can anyone name the comedy film (i can) where a squirrel sized actor parodied glenn danzig.

no using google. winners receive a life time supply of circus peanuts.

Dave said...

zoltan, what is that audio player? i like it better than the one i use for greasetruck songs.

rob said...

Wait, we're not just naming random classic rock songs that deal with the longing for stardom?

I think I have an in-grown nose hair.

TR said...

Lance it. Be a man and lance that shit with a safety pin. You show that hair who's boss.

zman said...

Normally I would but my nasal passages are pretty sensitive.

drexdrago said...

In Philly we dominate in-grown nose hairs wit an Official Eagles hair trimmer the way Andy Reid does.

TJ said...

Dennis, pls, shut up.

zman said...

Speaking of Philly and nose hair, whatever happened to Joel?

TJ said...

Last year, the Washington Nationals won their 17th game on June 11th.

How many wins do you think the hometown nine has right now?

Come on...guess...

Pessimism in western NY. The Rochester D&C is already campaigning for the Bills to pick Jake Locker in the 2011 draft.
