What's In Your iPod?

fire.gifKelly Clarkson's latest single, "My Life Would Suck Without You" is on the iTunes top ten downloads list, Billboard's top ten list and probably a dozen other lists we haven't even heard of.  In fact, one list you may not have heard of which lists Miss Clarkson at the number one spot, just happens to be my little top ten list - Artists/Songs That Completely Suck Mud. "My Life Would Suck Without You."  Really Miss Clarkson?  Funny but I was kind of thinking my life sucks WITH you.  Actually, that's not a fair statement.  My life sucks just a little bit more due to the constant bombardment by musical geniuses like Kelly Clarkson, Katy Perry, The Pussycat Dolls, The Killers, etc. etc.  So it's not all Kelly's fault. The Killers and their latest single, "Human," contains the lyrics "Are we human or are we dancer?"  WHAT THE HELL IS THAT?  Rumor has it that the Killers originally wanted to sing "Are we hemorrhoids or are we hamsters" but were afraid nobody would understand that so instead went with something that made more sense. Right.  Thank the Lord baby Jesus that their record label also nixed the lyrics “Are they hamsters gnawing on our hemorrhoids?”  Ouch. Not all music in the top 20 sucks and I certainly don't expect everyone to agree with my taste in music. But it would be helpful to me to understand why people like who they like because sometimes I just don't get it. Can you help me?  Will you tell me which artists you like and why? I'll even promise that if you can change my mind about Kelly and Katy and the like, presuming that's who you like, I'll light my paper bag on fire. I think that's fair. “Light my fire light my fire light my fire!”

You are dumb [and i am bored]
You said ... The Killers and their latest single, “Human,” contains the lyrics “Are we human or are we dancer?” WHAT THE HELL IS THAT? since you are smart enough to get on the internet you should spend an extra 30 seconds on google & research the song. The line is in reference to a line from Hunter Stockton Thompson (author of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas). The "are we dancers" asks "are we puppets on a string." Sorry that you don't understand slightly complex music. not a killers fan, just not a fan of idiots.

Dear You Are Dumb And I Am Bored: So you call me dumb and an idiot. WAAAAAAAAAAAAA! That's a little harsh don't you think? WAAAAAAAAAAAA! Particularly since I wasn't calling you names. WAAAAAA! WAAAAAAAA! I'm crying so hard right now due to your name-calling that I think I have to call my shrink for some emergency counseling. Please hold while I dial her number... Hi Dr. Crocker. WAAAAAAA! Someone just called me dumb and an idiot. WAAAAAAA! WAA! What's that Doc? The psychosis of name-calling is typically based upon feeling not OK, and name-callers are trying to make themselves feel more powerful via the name-calling process and to also compensate for their low self-esteem? Wa! Well, that makes me feel a lot better and now I kinda feel sorry for poor You Are Dumb And I Am Bored. Thanks Doc. What's that? Sure...I'll pass your number to You Are Dumb And I Am Bored. He or she appears to be very intelligent so I bet they'll take to therapy like puppets to a string. Click. Thanks for the comment You Are Dumb And I Am Bored. Given your little name-calling issue, I'm sure you'll feel compelled to respond to the breakthrough I've just experienced, no doubt to point out I misspelled WAAA or something equally profound. That's cool. I understand. Just know I'll be praying for you. Your friend, UB
