Thursday Variety Hour

WordPress, the blogging software behind this blog, has a cool feature that snatches comment spam and tucks it away so I can delete it. I have a question. Who are the people that spend their days creating this stuff?? What low-life wastes of space get up in the morning and look forward to a day of carpet bombing the internet with this trash?

What the hell is hentaipowerpuff?? On second thought, I don’t wanna know. It just mystifies me that there are people that do this. Obviously $$$ is the driving force, but holy cow, what a way to make it.

Thank you. I guess I needed to get that off my chest.

So before I post another Springsteen tour update, I thought I’d spice it up a little. These songs have absolutely nothing to do with eachother. Or do they? I guess, like the 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon, that it wouldn’t take too many steps to connect them up. Hmm, Til Tuesday, Billy Bragg & Wilco, and Boogie Down Productions. Maybe they all played the same festival in Finland one year. Entirely possible.

Boogie Down Productions: Criminal Minded (mp3) – from Live Hardcore Worldwide.

Til Tuesday: Coming Up Close (mp3) – from Welcome Home.

Billy Bragg & Wilco: Walt Whitman’s Niece (mp3) – from Mermaid Avenue.

Oh, and here’s a YouTube link to a 4 year old banging away on the drums like a pro.

    Great post, as usual. I hate that spam crap too, but as a fan of language I do see some pretty comical word combinations; like…”hentaipowerpuff”. Classic.
    “Coming Up Close”…God, that’s a great song. I’ve always loved it.
    I’m sure glad Aimee grew out of that hairstyle; it looked like a garden badly in need of weeding.
