Moog!

It looks like the wonderful people at IMDB didn't much like it, but I enjoyed the film. Maybe it's because I saw it the day after the man died of brain cancer, but it's worth a looksie. Though there's a little too much Rick Wakeman for my liking...speaking of which:

Not only do I not get Yes, but I fucking hate the bastards. Sure, Starship Trooper's a good track, but that aside, take your theremins and your double-stacked keyboards outta my music collection and back to the bottom of a cardboard box full of dusty records in a Bazaar Sale where you belong.

Also Roxy Music. I'm sorry, I've tried to get into this band, but it just ain't happenin'. Brian Eno's solo work was genius, but put him with Ferry and you get a whole lotta bland.

eat a handful of xanax, and then half an hour later, pop your lp of "Country Life" on the hi-fi, and enjoy!

I fully understand disliking them because they're complete shit, but also disliking them because they're Irish?

That's a total joke dude. I took a trip out to Ireland a couple months ago, and I can safely say you're the most lovely people in Europe (therefore in the world).

And having just been in the U.S. recently. Folks, aint nobody pronounces it IREland. Even the Irish. It's I-land.

Bruce Springsteen. Piss-poor Dylan-lite everyman, whose songs have now become terrible stories full of people who, if you met them in real life, would just make you shrug. We get it, you dig the plebs, good for you.


Just read his lyrics sometimes...for example, Blinded by the Light.
What a load of kark.
Complete bollocks.
Streets of Philadelphia was about the only song of his that didn't cause my ears to eject the drums.

That's fair enough, I wasn't sure if you were serious or not, just had to say something seeing as I'm fiercely proud of this place, even if I do live in the biggest shithole possible. It's the people I like! Them and their self-destructive natures. You just can't hate the tragically jovial. :)

This may be controversial, but here we go:

What's the deal with American Idol? I honestly do not get any of the hype regarding this "phenomenon". Maybe because I realize that it's not just the singer that makes a band sound good.

I realize I'm opening myself up to criticism here (since the Zone has an Idol thread, which I stay the hell away from), but that's my take. Anyone care to enlighten me?

couldnt agree more.

i watch it for the hot chicks, and to see people that suck get ripped on. sure, every now and again, they have a contestant or two with some talent. but the show in itself is just a shallow marketing juggernaut. but god is it great to see people that suck get ripped on.

Ditto regarding American Idol (well Pop Idol here), it's manipulative, probably half scripted, trash.
Sorry to the fans.
Elitism is positing that your taste is equivalent to quality, you hate "Hamlet" does it make it "bad"? If you think so, you're one elite motherfucker.

Lurker, I'm with you on that one.
It's just tripe. All of it. They are THE most bland, inane, and manufactured shows ever seen on TV and the "stars" these conveyer belts churn out make the most soulcrushing music known to man. Ever.

Personally, I prefer a little excitement in the music I choose to listen to.

[beams with pride] I've NEVER watched a single episode [/beams with pride].

Let's go raid the American Idol thread!
Personally, I'm an atheist in the voting booth and a theist in the movie theatre. I separate the morality of religion with the spirituality and solace of it. There is something boring about atheism.

I've seen a few of the winners singing at my moms house and I watch the auditions, but other then that I've never seen American Idol and don't plan to start.

I did watch the last half of Rockstar : INXS though. Mainly for Jordis.

nah, since I've never seeen the show, it would be sorta hypocritical of me.

'course, there's plenty of bands I bash who I've never listened to a whole album of, I wanna ban Mikey Bay from this mortal coil and I haven't watched any bits from Bad Boys II, or Armageddon in it's entirety (I swear I lost more brain cells watching the first 15 minutes of that than my entire life's worth of drinking and drugs), I wanna banish Bendis to a black hole but have only read a couple of things by him...

so, um, if someone else wants to go in there and raise some Havoc, I'll whistle and look the other way...

I totally agree. Jordis is just a home town girl with an awesome voice. By the time she left, she got 3rd place, I watched the finals just cause I thought it was pointless to stop.

that show (imo) is worse and more artistically and morally corrupt than american idol. at least idol doesnt pretend to be something that its not.
