Start idolizing real people instead of celebrities. You’ll be less disappointed in the long run.
That doesn’t make it perfect. Best adaptation is LA Confidential which makes huge edits to the story but captures the book perfectly.
Unfortunately I am very much in touch with the dark white heart of America. Being a white person, especially one that you might assume would be conservative, its pretty sobering all the shit other white people say to you when they dont think other people can hear.
I might be a little too cynical and jaded after working in a conservative dominated industry for over a decade, but I dont believe their is a single white person that voted for Trump because of “jobs”. No fucking way. They might tell themselves that’s why they did, but that doesnt make it true.
Can we stop using Johnny Depp as the lead in for these stories? Because he’s awful, and the other trailers were better.
Jennifer Garner bores me to tears. Used to like her during the “Alias” years, but now she’s all about the Minivan Majority™, branding herself by posting cutesy photos of her life as a MOM and pap strolling her way to and from church.
When I was a younger man, I used to call weed, “Harry Chronic Jr.”
Holy shiz. Thank you for reminding me that Suzi Quatro ever existed.
God, I remember getting shit on by commenters on this site for calling R. Kelly a hack and preferring newer artists like The Weeknd and Miguel.
One of the most cringeworthy moments in their output. It’s up there with Tai Shan.
People make that same sort of mistake in a lot of types of public speaking. They think that they should lay out all the facts and details, and save the punchline for the end, but if you don’t give them at least a basic idea of where this is all heading up front, then they’ve got too much to keep track of, without the…
Anyone who read Metal Edge in 1995-1998 would have been bombarded with these types of bands going more grunge. None of them had their original or successful line-ups, so you’d get L.A. Guns 3.0, Ratt 3.0, Skid Row 2.0, then the “super groups” like Sun Red Sun, Union, etc. One successful record that I still enjoy was…
I almost didn’t listen to the rest of Out of Time after listening to R.E.M. try to incorporate KRS One’s mealy-mouthed style into the opening track.
Of course he alsodecided to throw in a rap in Roll the Bones.
Can we do a similar playlist for the hair bands of the 80's that tried to become grunge/alt-rock bands in the early 90's? I have a feeling it’d be beyond hilarious...
you could 100% do this same thing with white rockers attempting, poorly to cope with rap in the mid-late 80s and early 90s. Plant is there once again, along with pete gabriel and many others.
Since this article includes so-called “new wave” in its analysis (i.e., Talking Heads, Elvis Costello), I would argue that one of the most unexpected, and commercially successful, example of a dinosaur act taking on a “new wave” sound is Yes in Owner of a Lonely Heart. Granted, this coincided with the addition of…
Can’t remember which number it was, but I loved the one with the whales.
Hi, Taylor’s mom!
