Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Finest Feedback

*bear pokes his head in, sees blood on the partitions, ponders*

Did one thing occur right here at the moment? As a result of we’ve reached 744 feedback AND I HAVEN’T EVEN POSTED ANYTHING YET.

I imply, I’m nonetheless studying the article, and haven’t even touched the commentariat half, and I’m questioning what the hell is happening.
OK, now that I’m accomplished, that is the form of writing that may get Tom a contract for a novel if he desires it. Even when I disagree with him.

First, the mental train. The riffs on the refrain virtually sound to me, unusually, like Free’s “All Proper Now”, caught on the primary three riffs. I love the velocity of the singing right here, as a result of there’s loads to maintain tempo with. The rap is…properly, (sorry, Mother) it’s what it’s. I hate the “chickety-China” bit, although I’m undecided if it’s offensive of simply silly. And who amongst us doesn’t have a “tantric Sting” joke? So, that’s eh.

There are different elements which are, I believe, intelligent. I’m sorry, Tom Breihan, however any reference to Bert Kaempfert is definitely kinda cool. Different elements don’t make sense, even once you learn them off a Google search as I did. I imply, I do know normally what a Sailor Moon is, and that the characters aren’t unhealthy, they’re simply drawn that method. And I’ve eaten a Snickers. None of that makes any sense to me why they’d be in a tune along with his want for brand spanking new golf golf equipment. I want the tune had been as tight because the raps are.

And but, I’m not mad on the goofiness. It’s simply that like everybody else, I’ve heard it loads, and so the damage kinda interferes with the preliminary rush of enjoyable you bought in 1998. Somebody turned me on to BNL someday after the millennium, lengthy after the hits landed. And I don’t thoughts the blokes within the bowling shirts with an uncommon perspective on pop-rock, of blending the considerate with the absurd and the goofy. I wouldn’t need to go to Petersborough with Tom anytime quickly, however to be mad at BNL is counterproductive to me. I personal their albums, so in my head they made be doing one thing proper.

So what number of Canadians signed up for accounts at the moment? I’m gonna sift by the wreckage, assist just a few individuals up (I get the sensation considered one of TNOCS’s founding characters is wounded to the core at the moment, studying all this), and begin mopping up.

“One Week” is a 5, and on a superb day a bit greater. Tom, your antidote is arising on Monday in Fast Hits. Need to ask, although: what can be the completely different between your tune at the moment, and my tune Monday, which is, let’s say, all new and radical and stuff? It’s solely a pair levels of separation between the 2 songs.

One thing to consider, whereas Toronto experiences a run on Aspirin (as Bayer is named up there).

It appears to be like like somebody severed an artery down right here…

(BTW, the Tulsa quote, for the uninitiated, is from a Waylon Jennings tune from 1971, a #16 nation hit known as “(Don’t Let the Solar Set on You) Tulsa”. The album is best recognized for the title monitor, although, a #5 nation/#94 pop hit…)
