They even look a bit alike

Some things are so horrid they must be shared, lest one suffer alone.

At first, I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. Ultimately, I did both -- but only after flushing my eyes, ears (and, for good measure, at least one other orifice) with a 1:1 solution of CLR and paint thinner.

I was about to entitle this post "This has nothing to do with politics..." but then I realized something: this is the musical equivalent of every Stockwell Day press conference I've ever seen.

I'm sorry.

so did 'the boss' start all this or did yoyo ma's apalachian journey slowly seep it's way into rock stars?

interesting though...we've had nothing new 'music revolution' wise in a while. people who study this say there's always turn backs to the old to fill the void until something new comes along. wonder what THAT will evolve to?

btw, i made a link to the chords for you on my 'persuade shoes' post, stephis harpley's new hit.

You leave mymy momma out of this. Chords -- plural? You mean there's something other than G? I have so much to learn musically.

yoyo ma wears army boots!

yes, i believe from my own primitive playing experiences that three chords actually exist. i have been attempting to channel some great guitarists whilst strumming but to date i've only had success at incarnating richard nixon. the two don't seem to blend.

I couldn't shake a creepy chill watching that - but I watched the whole thing transfixed.

I've never seen a singer play air guitar with such passion.

"Creepy chill" -- yep, that's it, Chucker. And Stocky Day packs the same cringe factor. Or am I making too much of this? Should I stop calling him "Diamond Day"?

well, stackedwell was an auctioneer, so i guess his creepoid factor tranformed from youth to there to creepoid 'air-head band' politician.

I have no officially watched that clip 4 times with different people forced to join me in the watching.

I love it. I am off to practice yelping like Lee Roth does.

Jump! I say it's more a 'yip' than a 'yelp'. Oh well, tomayto / tomahto.

Something I've started doing when I watch the clip with others is to offer milk and cookies afterwards -- to soothe the heebie geebies. It's the compassionate thing to do.

I ain't the worst that you've seen.

maybe so, but even with your back up against the record machine, I don't see what you mean.

Maybe if he had hair it would have been a different story?
