Friday Foolishness – Evil Edition!


Today’s Music: Talking Heads – Psycho Killer
Days Til Spring: 25

*A note: Today’s poll is evil. Really, it is insiduous and may very well scar you for the greater part of the afternoon.
You’ve been warned.

Yes, Van Halen rocked.
No, I have no idea why I went to Indianapolis to see them.
But I did have a blast. More on that to come…

Her’s a few posts that caught my attention from around the ‘sphere this week:
SightsnBytes told us about his friend Josh. Brian Westbye threw up another great short piece, this time mocking hipsters.
And Eric Murtaugh embraced the nervousness of his first time.
You should check them all out, then mosey on through their blogs. It’s all good stuff!
But not right now.

Because what you really want to know is the answers your fellow commenters came up with for last weeks poll, Who should be honored on President’s Day.
Well ask no more! Here are the other answers. (Comments in italics, as always, are mine).
John Q. Shopping…that’s why everything is on sale.
(With the amount of sales throughout the year, he’s got to be the most honored man in history!)
Thomas Crapper…for bringing all the crap inside. Red.
(Thanks Red – I had him confused with WC Flushington)
Me, of course! Mrs. Cap’n Firepants, future President of the United States
(How would you direct the Secret Service to respond to Wonderbutt?)
Masterchief. Nuff said.
(Cortana would still be the woman behind the man.)
Charles Nelson Riley — LindaV
(I should have known you were a Matching game fan!)
Add Thomas Jefferson and James K Polk because they had the most BRRAAIIINNSSS!
(Wait – had as in “possessed” or as in “ate”?)
Guapola – for his coolness…whitelady
(Thank you whitelady! but there’s no way I’d survive the background checks.)
(hehehe)

Captain James T Kirk
(Sure, he’ll get the green woman vote, but how does he do with the rest of the population?)
The Brain (No, not BRRAAIINNS, but The Brain, from Pinky and The Brain. Alex A.
(THE WINNER!!! I wish I’d though of this!)
Congratulations Alex! And from the list of answers in the poll,the most popular was Zaphod Beebelbrox. Just more proof of how cool you all really are.

But now it’s time to move on. I’ve talked several times about my girl on this blog. But the reason I love her and think she’s so fantastic is summed up in today’s poll. Because it was her idea.
And again, I have to say that if anyone has anything even remotely productive they want to do today, don’t read any further
There is no “Other” answer this week. Leave your choice in the comments so everyone can suffer enjoy them without having to wait.
You’re welcome!

And until next time (when I do the concert review), here’s a song I don’t mind having stuck in my head.
From the show I was at. Seriously, most of the concert is on You Tube…

    • Sorry whitelady.
      Ok, yeah, not very though…

      I was thinking of changing the warning to red letters, but there’s no reason we shouldn’t share the pain with everyone else.

  8. Okay… have I mentioned what a silly fool I am for Van Halen???!!! AND! I am *totally* going to see them when they come here in May. SO CRAZY EXCITED!
    But… this new album is missing something.
    Admittedly, I am a Van Hagar fan, through-and-through. But their time with Dave was awesome! And I love that stuff, as well. Their new music is missing the magic. Whatever it was that captivated us is noticeably absent. And no Michael Anthony? *sigh* He was my favorite. (I sorta had/have a crush on him.)

    Not the point. The point is that I can’t WAIT to read your review. Can’t. Wait!

    And… this song is way worse than anything you can proffer up today.

    • It was a great show, flame. No, the sheer volume of alcohol consumed doesn’t affect my judgement at all. And there were no Hagar era songs in the set.
      An that’s a good song! I will be referring to that link to get the others out of my head…

    • Asplenia, I’m not convinced that there isn’t a subliminal message in that song that Disney will use one day to take over the world. Seriously, no one likes it, but everyone knows it…

  16. Television shows and movies should use your parental advisory instead. It’s way better than “This show may not be suitable for some audiences. Viewer discretion is advised.” Boooring.

    Not a great way to start my weekend with not only itsy bitsy spider running around in my head, but also Mickey. 😑

  21. Another great choice for song of the day–other than Oui and Non, the only French I know comes from that song.

    Also, although Captain JT Kirk seems like a good choice, as the All-American captain was born in Iowa, he is most famously portrayed by a (gasp!) Canadian.

  22. The Mr. Softee song.

  23. I LOVE the Mr. Softee song! But only because it means I’m in NY, and that is an entirely too rare occurrence.

  25. After entirely too many years of sentenced working overnight in the big box demonic retail temple, I have to beg for a case of ear worms every stinking time I hear “Why Can’t We Be Friends?” And since BBDRT has an eight hour loop of every band who has every done (I refuse to acknowledge this song as material worthy of being “redone”.) in its entire miserable history.

    We cannot be friends because this song is utterly vile and atrocious.

  26. shoot EG, how did i miss the president’s day contest? oh well… my nomination for the song i’d least like to have stuck in my head is… “the lion sleeps tonight” – which song i absolutely positively HATE! Mickey is a VERY close second, followed by “Deutschland ΓΌber Alles” – but that’s just me. continue…

    • Honestly Tony, I like The Lion Sleeps Tonight. I have a lot of fond memories of that song…
      Strongly agree with the other two though.

    • Tony: oh dear god I Detest Mickey. Hated it form the day it was released on an unsuspecting public. As for Deutschland ΓΌber Alles? I just run run run run run so far away ai ai ai…
      My landlord -when I was living in LA- was the cinematographer for the film ‘Stop Making Sense.’
      EG: this is the best live version I’ve come across of this song. Of course I’d see them again if they toured. Saw them in ’84 while living in NYC.
      Great show.

    True evil..especially the insertion of those videos. The horror. The horror.
    Nightmares will ensue. No amount of Ambian will release the carnage inflicted by the Van Halen video -shudder-. Hope your happy!

  28. I only wanna comment on Psycho Killer. I always enjoy your song picks and this one is no exception. It reminds me of my youth – Can’t remember how old I was– 19 or 20?
    Which do you prefer, the live version or the other?

    Like

    • Honestly, El Guapo prefers the recorded version, Lisa. Live versions he’s seen are too heavy on the bass and just seem to him to drone a bit more than the album version.
      That being said, if they ever tour again, Guapo plans to be there, and they can play it however they want.
