Speaking of which, there's a new Subaru ad using a Pogues song, specifically "If I Should Fall From Grace With God". It's about a hockey mom ferrying the kids around.

Is it just me, or is that fucked-up?

Well, we could debate the origins for weeks. Pumpkins? Peppers? INXS? Might have to go all the way back to Zeppelin - who knows?

Either way, I say chop!

Wow. Remember people: 'With great power'...

The problem here is that crappy bands are inspired by good ones. Are there any groups inspired by Korn? No. Will there ever be? No.

Having said that, I would happily lop off the branch that gave birth to nu metal, consequences be damned.

I just want to know one thing: how do you run on a platform of tax breaks for the rich and convince the numbskulls that this time trickle-down economics will work, somehow? Especially in an economic freefall?

Frankly, I give up. Like WC Fields said, 'Never wise up a sucker.'

Let's face it - when it comes to excessive debauchery, Keef is still the gold standard.

It's been all Beatles for me, lately - Revolver, especially. It occurs to me that when you listen to a Beatles album, you really get a lot of different sounds in one package.

Not many current artists seem to be able to put that kind of diversity in an album.

Yeah, he dies in a shark cage in the book. I was maybe 15 when I read it (I didn't see the full movie until college), so I loved it then, but can't really vouch for it after so long. It was a freaking HUGE best seller, though, so it must be at least somewhat good...the only question is how well it'...
