GREEN DAY

Green day is awesome. They probably aren't considered to be a great band because they don't pump out really fantastic or earthshattering instrumental music....but, they may just be our generation's version of zepplin. Hit after hit after hit, and i don't care if maybe they're just a made for radio rock band, guess where I listen to them, on the radio.

Honestly, besides ABBA, what other band has a broadway musical?

the olympics are nice and fun. Phelps is the greatest of all time. To think that he's only missed out on a medal in 2 events in 4 (that's right, this is his 4th olympics) olympics, that's pretty dominant. And one of those events was the other night in the 400IM. Somebody said wake me up when track and field starts, i'll take swimming over T&F anyday.

There was a scene last night where some Chinese swimmer won the something, maybe the breastroke, maybe something else. She's 16. Bob Costas made a point to discuss that we shouldn't jump to the conclusion that she's been using PEDs, that a lot of swimmers get better from age 14 to 15/16 and shave seconds off their personal bests. Thanks Bob, before you even mentioned it, I hadn't even thought twice about "well, maybe she's been doping", glad you brought it up. Fucking loser that costas is. I hate him. So damn smug.

I think I got a mild case of food poisoning from this mexican restaurant on monday night. Fucking mexicans

NCAA footyball is going well. For those of you not in the league, we're going to talk about it every wednesday morning. I haven't nerded out and changed all the names of my players yet, I figure most will go pro after I win the BCS championship this year anyway. This recruiting stuff is bullshit, what do you mean I can only call the guy once a week? I have an instant classic game with BYU, thanks to a long bomb in the last minute for me to win it, and I don't get any extra bump in recruiting? That seems ludicrous.

People are too sensitive these days, take a zoloft and quit yer crying.

Found a perfect candidate for my assistant controller position I'm hiring for. She was awesome, met every requirement, and interviewed really well. She also wanted almost double what we're looking to pay for the position. Everyone here is a little below market because we're a small company, but not double below. But...it gave me the fuel to go to the CFO and say "look, if you want all this stuff within this job, here's what the perfect candidate will cost us". The next guy was pretty good as well, but he wanted about 50% too much. So i'm going to get stuck with someone who is decent because we're cheap. (granted, both of them were seeking more than I actually make, and i'm not sure if given the qualifications we're looking for, that i'd be qualified for the job).

This is the best inspirational speech for the olympic swimmers, ever.

gotta give Bill O'Brien credit, he's kept a lot more guys than I thought he would, but PSU is going to be awful. If I was him, i'd have quit and gone back to the NFL as soon as the sanctions came down.

IC. This is where your nollidge* of grammar would help out

"The Temps were a friggin' singing act."

vocal group is the term
and they were doo-wop/r&b

and they were FANTASTIC

Keef said...

Buddy Holly was no rock n roller.


I'd disagree w/ that

Mize said...

I like Buddy Holly though.

Keef said...

Buddy Holly was an American singer-songwriter and a pioneer of rock and roll.



Wiki would also disagree

Mize said...

"I'd disagree w/ that"

I'm on the fence, actually.

El Padrino said...

"Buddy Holly was no rock n roller."

i'm not calling you names because now i'm actually starting to feel sorry for you

many musical historians credit holly with CREATING rock and roll

It's crazy that Buddy Holly was really only ya-huge for a year & a half

even then...I dont usually get sick

ToddPacker said...

trying to put specific acts into a specific genres of music is ratarted..... reading those comments gave me a headache

kod said...

"the genre for four seasons is pop/rock

the genre for The Beatles is pop/rock

the styles are certaintly different but they get sold under the same umbrella"


that's a tough one IMO. Depends on how broadly you define the genre

For instance, oldies stations all play The Beetles, and they all play FV....they are both in the genre of "oldies"

But....classic rock stations play the Beetles, but I've never heard FV on classic rock, other than a few classic rock stations that choose to play the Grease theme song (which was actually written by Gibb from the Bee Gees, so I don't count it as a classic rock song: of course, the Bee Gees are another genre confusing group). On the whole, if the genre defined is classic rock, then they are different genres IMO


If you want to define it as pop/rock, well, that's just about every top 40 song from the last 50 years (going further, it's pretty much every song released from any bad/artist who has hit the top 40)...so you have a ton of variation-from The Supremes to Metallica, from the Rolling Stones to NSync. It's not a good genre, far to broad....might as well just lump everything together under the umbrella of "music"

If you don't like my non-answer, answer, then I'll give you the best definitive answer I can give:

For most genres, I will count them as the same because FV had a pretty well known cover of Day in the Life, and they are not so far apart to make it one of those genre crossing covers (i.e. Pat Boone doing metal, Sheryl Crow butchering Led Zeppelin, Cat Stevens via Rod Stewart, etc.). To me, it puts them closer to contemporaries like Dylan and Peter Paul and Mary, or like Joe Cocker and everyone else

My dad and I have been arguing for 10+ years over whether Fat Bottom Girls from Queen is a Country Song. I don't think it is, but most people side with him after listening to it, so he's probably right

Fat bottom girls is southern rock.

It is not country.

"My dad and I have been arguing for 10+ years over whether Fat Bottom Girls from Queen is a Country Song."

That's crazy talk.

kod said...

"That's crazy talk."

that's what I keep saying; doesn't sound remotely country to me.


of course, he's been playing guitar for about 50 years, and I've never played; something about the guitar chord progression that arguably makes it country.

guitar players usually agree with him, people who don't usually agree with me.
