Viral, squared!

I'm a super dork, I bought the neck fan you see advertised on the tv. It's got 2 little fan thingies and you wear around your neck, to cool you down if you're cooking, or maybe hanging out poolside. I brought it to work because holy crap it's hot. When my machine and my boss' machine are both cranking full speed it generates a lot of heat in my office. Last week he set up a floor fan...FOR THE MACHINE. I get it, the machine itself can't overheat but jesus point it my way just a little. It's USB charged so I don't have to have an enormous stash of batteries. and I won't officially "wear" it, it can just sit on my desk.

We were going to watch Hamilton this weekend but it doesn't actually come out until next weekend so we got super drunk on wine and watched "Cats". Like we knew it was going to be so bad that we needed to half drunk to start with. Yes it's weird and it isn't something I'd sit around and watch all day but it's no weirder than the actual show.

Back in the 60s, it was all about musical talent, looks didn't matter.  That ship sailed long ago.  Now, it is all about looks, and talent doesn't seem to matter anymore.

I never had any interest in going to a concert where someone lip syncs.  It would be cheaper to play the music at home and use sock puppets as "singers."

Oh, I've been saying that for so long. Now, success is dependent on having great hair, great teeth and being attractive. I have never watched "America's Got Talent" but saw a short video on YT with Susan Boyle, where Simon Cowel said, after he heard her sing, "I was all prepared to hate you." I guess because she wasn't a generic-looking, conventionally pretty, toothy, busty 20-year old? And they cry and cry!

I hate to think how people like Bob Dylan or Joe Cocker would have fared if their success hinged on being good-looking and getting a thumbs up from the All-Powerful God, Simon. Or Ellen DeGeneres. 😏

There are still a lot of good bands, and plenty of crap. A lot of the bands I like now tend to sound like the 60s and 70s bands I like. 

I once saw Right Said Fred live. They lip synched their one song, and then did it again. They didn't even try to pretend. Luckily, I was absolutely hammered.

[sarcasm] That is just what I want to see, an entire two hour concert with some one hit wonder group singing variations of their one hit over and over again.  [/sarcasm]

I never understood why anyone had any issue with Relax by Frankie Goes to Hollywood.

IMO, Yummy Yummy Yummy by the Ohio Express is a far more suggestive song, and I have never heard anything bad said about that song.

It was actually banned by the BBC from being broadcast on their pathetic channels, just like ‘Sexual Healing’ by Marvin Gaye, to be fair though, ‘relax’ wouldn’t be something i would have liked to have had to explain to my young teenage child, not that I’ve ever had one.

I wonder what the BBC would make of the great band ‘Pearl Jam’ 😱

A few years ago my niece was over and we were watching an ep of "Sex and the City". She told me she'd never seen it. I was surprised then she said she never watches anything when her dad is there, because it's too embarassing, including commercials. I'd never thought about that, but it's true. When I was a kid the whole family could watch every show without worrying about locker-room or bathroom humour or commercials where douches are being waved around or erectile dysfunction being discussed. Sad, it is.

As for explaining, my co-worker told me her very young son came to her in her kitchen and asked, "Mom, what's a Maxi-pad?" I remember during the Bill Clinton kerfuffle thinking that now children have to be prevented from seeing the news, unless you wanted them to get a very early education about extramarital affairs, semen stains and blowjobs. What's a parent to do?

I do have to admit it did grow on me,it was quite tuneful, I’m loving the ‘Viking’ look going on.  UTube being what it is, you have to follow link after link, I’ve never heard of Mushroom Head or Rotting Christ before, they all look like an offshoot of the Silent Hill franchise, some weird shit going on there.

The chorus was surprisingly melodic. That is closer to what I like. Lately I've been listening to what might be called "stoner metal." To me, they're bands that sound like old Black Sabbath but are still playing.

Yup! 🙂 The chorus is the main reason I thought of it in relation to the discussion at hand - it seemed relevant:

You just want a pretty face
To sing you a song
A lullaby that turns you on
But it's all so vain
So criminal
Do you really want
A mannequin idol?

That's what I love about "Afternoon Delight". It sounds so innocent and sweet until you really listen to the words. But really, isn't an afternoon delight sweet? Well, from what I remember about such things it was, or is. 

Listent to the words of Prince's "Little Red Corvette" if you want explicitly sexual. 😮

IMO, Into the Night is even worse, and it isn't close.  That song was playing on the radio this morning, and I still don't know how it ever received any airplay.  The music video sure as heck doesn't help it any.  Awful.  Just awful.

I have never seen that video until this moment, although of course I'd heard the song, "Ode to Pedophilia". It's yet worse in that he's 34 there and looks at least 50. That line, "She's just 16 years old, leave her alone" was actually spoken, Mardones claims, by him to Robert Tepper with whom he was writing songs, about a real 16-year old named Heidi who was "dressed for school in a miniskirt, little stacked heels, adorable, 16-going-on-21." 😒

Or maybe it was the other way around. Who knows what the real story is? I didn't know Benny died this year.

Yes, Prince was a musical genius. Lyrically, not so much. 

Remember the 70s disco classics "Push, Push In The Bush" and "Baby, we can do it, take your time, do it right?"

I have no clue what happened, but in the last 48 hours my stomach is acting up like it has in the past.  Like I swallowed shards of glass.  It is incredibly bloated.  I haven't noticed any bleeding yet, but it is just a matter of time.   Usually that comes with dizzy spells, because my blood level starts to drop.  I usually double over in pain.

I have no interest in being "scoped" again.  Been there done that.   Will just have to drink ice water until the pain goes away and the bloating subsides.  That usually works.   Waiting for it to work is the problem.

I haven't been able to sleep.

It makes me irritable as hell, I am trying my hardest to be all sunshine and rainbows.

Don't forget, today The Twilight Zone binge weekend starts at noon EST on Decades.

There were plenty of fireworks going off here last night, and for the last 2 weeks or so. It's interesting, because they're illegal in this state. They were far enough away that it wasn't too bad, noise-wise. 

We often spend the 4th at my m-i-l's in Michigan, where fireworks are quite legal and sold everywhere. It sounds like WW3 from the 3rd through the 5th.

Several years ago when I was walking around the block, a lady stopped me as she was driving by and asked me I had seen her new puppy.  Apparently, she had let her puppy out and when the puppy heard fireworks, ran off.  I assume she eventually found her puppy.
