Hit it wicked ha'd!

Last night I was watching a little bit of Sports Center and Stuart Scott was on—as he usually is Sunday nights now that his Dream Job gig is over until they decide to inflict it upon us again.

(Do you think he cries to himself at night -- "[former Sports Center co-host] Rich [Eisen] is now the identity of the NFL Network and I host a reality TV show on a cable network"? I do.)

Never has one man rode one catch phrase and his perceived "street cred"—most of which is attributed to his blackness—longer than Stu has. I get the feeling that he is trying to create something as enduring as "boo-yeah" without dropping the former from his repertoire. He hasn't come close yet. Using quotes from other sources don't count. Along those lines, last night he worked a Wicked reference into the Cavs highlight, singing no less: "with an assist from James he's gonna be pop-U-lur! He'll be pop-U-lur!"*

But I don't know which is weirder—that he made the reference or that I knew the reference when I heard it.


* hearing Stu Scott warble off key intentionally to a Steven Schwartz tune is intensely traumatic. Avoid doing this yourself at all costs.

Right on bitch - all of what you said, and also there's something f-ed up with his eyes, one's a different color than the other. Personally, I think he's a warlock or possibly a demon... either way we should tie him to a goal post and burn him.

Well I guess you're just gonna have to spin your Wheels for a Time there dark fella. I've got no plans to be anything like that third person referencing fool, Lati-Bitch. But if I don't comment around on his or his friend's once in a while his feelings get all hurt and he calls me randomly throughout the day.

People who stop b-ing 'cause of the holidays are bitch-lame so gold star stickers to you for pounding steady.

Ratchet set bitch.

Some things are better left uncovered

Sometimes you hear a cover and go to yourself, "hey, that's doper than Sam Perkins at Woodstock." Other times, you wonder (possibly aloud) "that no talent hack! They couldn't even carry [inset original artist here]'s guitar case!" [Ed. note: You should have seen what the author originally wanted to use as the carried item. Believe us, it wasn't a guitar case.]

Today was an example of the second. Some fool whose name I cannot even spare the mental RAM for, has covered "High and Dry" by the esteemed Radiohead. This is up there. With the worst covers of all time. Some songs just don't ever need to be covered. Like this one. And like "It's My Life" by Talk Talk. But No Doubt did a decent job with that one, although they crapped all over it with that video.

This one today was bad. When you do a cover, you're supposed to bring something to it. Maybe your sound is similar to the original artist's, and you b…

A New Game

cpMaia likes to come up with fun games you can play with your friends. Her latest inspired me to come up with one of my own.

Everyone who plays has to come up with three (3) songs they wish they had written. I hope those of you who aren't musicians play along as well.

I'll start:

Paranoid Android, Radiohead
Divine roller-coaster vocals along with some out-of-this-world guitar work.
With Or Without You, U2
Simplicity and restraint elevate what could have been a late-80's power ballad to classic status.
Comfortably Numb, Pink Floyd
2 of the greatest guitar solos of all time.

Monday Miscellany #3

Apparently Sony's Everquest 2 has added a new "feature". If you type "/pizza" the game launches Pizza Hut's web site, so you can order a pie whilst slaying dragons or virtually wooing an elven princess. This beats the former method, which was spending 5 minutes on the phone with a good pizzeria, ordering something that would actually be edible. The online comic Crtl-Alt-Del has taken this "innovation" to its logical conclusion. Joy.
Bad Cover Alert™: Some bimbo named Katrina Carlson has forsaken all credibility or originality and covered the classic "Drive" by The Cars. Another case of trying to cash in on someone else's brilliance, this abomination adds absolutely nothing to the original. Ben Orr is spinning in his grave, no doubt. I was driving (no pun intended) Sunday night when we heard this crap being pushed over the airwaves and into the car's stock radio. The resulting hysteria of both of us simultaneously trying to …
