  1. At least once every day I think about how the top advisors of the king of the black market and an insanely powerful false king in One Piece are literally just mucus hunchback, stone golem, and Steven Tyler

  2. Just gonna put this out there: for a year or so I've been juggling the idea of making a video (just an unlisted Youtube video of myself talking) about where I've been; because at this point, explaining everything that's been going on since my decline in activity has been going on too long that I just can't make a post explaining it all.

     

    Also been contemplating all year creating a review blog where I review every episode of Regular Show for it's 10th anniversary, only problem is I've been pretty busy with school since I got back mid-August, but I think I can fit it in. I don't wanna sour the mood, but I've been having a really unexpectedly tough week emotionally after two/three weeks where I actually felt decent so expect that sometime soon.

  3. I'm a huge fan of Tawna's redesign and reimagining in the franchise as a whole. Really glad they're trying to make her an actual character instead of this uncomfortably hypersexualized love interest.
  4. The Offspring are the Aerosmith of punk rock. Their first 4/5 albums are absolute classics (S/T-Ixnay On The Hombre and S/T-Draw The Line respectively) but after that point both bands just got so obnoxiously cheesy. To be fair though, both have their fair share of diamonds in the rough after that point (more so the Offspring- Americana's got a couple good tracks and while super overrated IMO You're Gonna Go Far Kid is still a good song)

  5. Walk Like An Egyptian is a guilty pleasure and Stardust Crusaders is 100% guilty for making it be one.

  6. Unpopular opinion- Seasons In The Sun by Terry Jacks isn't that bad. Yeah it's not a good song but I feel like so much of the reason why is because Jacks is just not a good singer. Thank god Nirvana covered it like 19 years later, they absolutely killed it and their cover of it is insanely underrated and one of the very few covers I legit think is better in almost every way. They actually bring that song the dirge it needs to work.

     

    Honestly, compared to other stuff that year alone like "(You're Having) My Baby", "The Streak", and "Hooked On A Feeling", I honestly think it's pretty tame. Not great but not bottom 10 material or worst songs of all time material. Yeah the song is corny and Jacks is a bad singer but hey, at least it's not ridiculously chauvinistic or constantly shouting "OOGA CHAKA!" at you for no reason.

    1. Wumbo

      Wumbo

      I always found it curious that this was one of Kurt's favourite songs, and I had never heard the Nirvana cover before, so I decided to give it a listen. I think you and Kurt definitely got something out of it that I didn't, and that seems clear through Kurt switching around the lyrics for his cover. I still don't really think it's great coming from Kurt; the lyrics just seem trite to me no matter how you slice them. But it's at least more interesting than the original.

      Also, I will first stick up for the original song from which the melody for "Seasons" comes, every time.

  7. 1. What are you listening to right now- "Homos" by The Frogs. Strangely really got into them recently- for those who don't know, they were this comedy rock/indie band and basically their entire discography is devoted to making fun of right-wing homophobia, and Kurt Cobain was a big fan of them. 2. What song(s) make you sad? A fucking lot. Black by Pearl Jam comes to mind, though. 3. What is the most annoying song in the world? Again, I can't pinpoint anything specific, but few songs elicit a reaction as vitriolic as my reaction to Don't Stop Believin'. 4. Your all time favorite band? Smashing Pumpkins, or At The Drive-In. 5. Your newly discovered band? The Frogs, coincidentally enough. Also Flipper. 6. Favorite female voice? Hard as fuck, but I've always really loved Shirley Manson's voice from Garbage. 7. Favorite male voice? Man.... idk. As much of a piece of shit he is, I've always had a huge soft spot for Billy Corgan's vocal style, as divisive as it can be. 8. Music you find yourself listening to the most? Usually 80's alternative/indie, or classic psychedelic music as of recent, but I listen to a lot of shit. 9. What do you listen to hype you up? Anything fast or adrenaline pumping, really. Usually it comes back to metal or hardcore punk though for me. 10. What do you listen to when you want to calm down? Anything relaxing, which usually ends up being shoegaze. 11. Last gig/concert you went to? Weezer and Pixies two years ago 12. Band you find yourself listening to the most right now? I've been listening to a lot of classic metal recently (80's Slayer, Metallica), and The Smashing Pumpkins. Other than that, my music habits as of recently have been insanely diverse. Also been listening to a lot of Flipper recently 13. Most hated band? I don't think I have a lot of hatred towards a specific band, but I have a very, very low tolerance for hair metal. 14. Songs that make you think? "Ever wish the human race didn't exist, and then realize you're one too." from Ever by Flipper is probably the most poignant lyric I can think of off the top of my head. 15. Band you think the world should love as much as you do? At The Drive-In. Peak post-hardcore for me. 16. Coolest music video? Can't think of anything off the top of my head, at least right now. 17. Music video with the most babe watch? Also can't think of anything 18. What do you play/would you play to spice things up in the bedroom? I'm 19 and still a virgin uhh idk. Probably cringy but maybe some of the more, I guess sexy side of classic psychedelic. Think stuff like Sunshine Of Your Love or Time Of The Season, or even In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida. If all else fails at least I got classic RCHP or Closer by Nine Inch Nails 19. Can you play a musical instrument? I can play guitar and drums, albeit not very well. 20. Have you been in a mosh pit? No, but I would love to. 21. Are you in a band? No, but I would love the musical ability to be in one 22. Ever dated a musician? I'm 19 and I've never had a girlfriend. Wow, my love life is depressing.... 23. Do you wish that you were a musician? Yes, a lot, in all honesty. I just don't think I have the talent or even energy, at least right now to get really good at guitar or drums. 24. Best chick band you know of? Again, IDK, but Shonen Knife comes to mind. 25. Last song you heard on the radio? I can't even remember the last time I listened to the radio. 26. What do you think of classical music? Important to music, but 100% not my thing at all. 27. What do you think of country music? I know it's a common target but I fucking hate modern country music, it's honestly unbearable to me. That said, I do like some alternative country- Uncle Tupelo, Wilco, Okkervil River, early My Morning Jacket, etc. And of course cowpunk in regards to Meat Puppets and a few others. 28. What do you think of death metal? I'm interested in getting into it. 29. Last big artist you saw live? Weezer and the Pixies. 30. Are you a groupie? No... sounds fun though. 31. Do you listen to music in foreign languages? Yes, mostly Japanese in all honesty- but I am interested in listening to more foreign music. 32. What famous musician would you like to "spend the night with"? I don't even know where to begin with this one, damn 33. Worst concert moment? I don't have one 34. Funny concert moment? Saw Weird Al on the Mandatory Fun tour, too many to count tbh. 35. Sad concert moment? I don't have one 36. Best local act you can think of? Don't feel like giving my location tbh 37. If you were an instrument, what would you be? No idea honestly 38. Do you listen to the radio? Nope 39. Do you watch music TV? Nope 40. Do you follow music charts, like the top 40? Not really 41. Have you met any famous musicians? I met most of The Black Crowes when I was really young. 42. Are any of your friends/family/etc musicians? Several, I don't know where to begin with that 43. Song that best describes you right now? I'm pretty relaxed rn, idk though 44. Song that describes your life? Can't think of one right now 45. Do you know the names of all the band members of the bands you listen to? Usually. I've always been good with remembering names 46. Does a musician's physical attractiveness play a role in the music you listen to? Nope 47. What famous musician do you want to marry? Man idk 48. Favorite movie soundtrack? I've never really listened to any movie soundtracks 49. Any musician pet hates? Nothing I can think of right now 50. What do your parents listen to? I hate to say this for like the tenth time now, but both my parents were in the music industry and listen to all sorts of stuff so I wouldn't even know where to start on that front 51. What are you listening to right NOW? "Kiss Off" by Violent Femmes 52. Do you wear band shirts? Yeah, fairly often actually 53. Do you cook to music? Sometimes 54. Do you sing on the toilet? Never
  8. Mine too coincidentally enough. Also, I know I could do it on the blog posts (and I probably should but I'm already here), but thoughts on:
  9. "Day Of The Jackanapes"* Written by: Al Jean First aired: February 18th, 2001 Synopsis: Because of pressure from studio execs, Krusty announces his retirement, and in an interview about his retirement, he says he has erased all of the episodes with Sideshow Bob. Seeking revenge, Sideshow Bob is released from prison and hypnotizes Bart into killing Krusty at his retirement show. Hey, guess what we haven't had since Season 8? A Sideshow Bob episode! Seriously, there used to be one pretty much every season until Season 8, and the writers just.... stopped. Kind of funny the episode involves retirement when they're bringing a character they haven't used in so long back. And of course, going into this it's not gonna be Cape Feare or Sideshow Bob Roberts, but this episode still proves a pretty great 22 minutes and one of the best outings Season 12 has had so far. The best part about this episode is just seeing Sideshow Bob back in action. His wit, his charm, that amazing voice by Kelsey Grammer, all here. Most of the lines said by him get a chuckle out of me and it's just so goddamn much fun to see him again. It's not one of his best appearances, but watching him still proves a blast. I especially love his interaction with Principal Skinner, and the episode has a nice twist with how Krusty unexpectedly apologizes to Bob right at the end of his show, and Bob has to try and stop Bart from killing Krusty. It's a nice twist, and while it's far from original, it's way better than Bart failing to kill Krusty by some reason such as the technology he would kill Krusty with failing or a lame deus ex machina. And this episode, is yet again, pretty funny. So many of Sideshow Bob's lines get snickers out of me and the scene where Krusty hypnotizes Bart into beating the shit out of the Krusty statue in front of Krusty Burger as the police inside eating just blankly watch it all happen got a huge laugh out of me. The show that is competing with Krusty's in the ratings, Me Wantee, is decently funny too, I especially like Homer's flag saying "GAME SHOWS". A lot of these jokes are just solid jokes. Not rolling on the floor worthy, but definitely snicker worthy and keep me snickering and smiling all the way through, as well as invested in the plot. They're not super complicated either nor original and that's okay because a lot of these work. And the plot is a great idea; I like the idea of Sideshow Bob using Bart to try to kill Krusty. Unfortunately, that leads into one of the problems with this plot and that is the fact I think the hypnotism stuff is super unnecessary. I wouldn't mind it as much if it added a lot to the plot, but it really doesn't. Bart is Krusty's biggest fan after all, wouldn't it make sense for Sideshow Bob to try to friend Bart to get to Krusty? I mean, Bart barely remembers him at first, but I guess their rivalry is just too strong that Bart won't follow his command unless hypnotized. I can't complain too much because the hypnotism leads to the best joke in the episode. This episode also has a really weird pointless part where after the studio execs die from a monkey that blocks Krusty from hypnotized Bart taking Bart's bombs and throwing it in the exec's room right next to the stage, and they all die in this gray substance and come back to life? It's a really lame joke and it feels so goddamn unnecessary and out of place. I don't think I have too much to say besides that apparently a parody of Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah was going to be used in the episode, but they were unable to secure the rights in time so it's not there. I don't really think a parody of that song could be used anywhere in the episode, so it doesn't bother me. It was probably used as a clip from a past show of Krusty's as they usually do in Krusty episodes. It's a pretty good 22 minutes, but because of some minor things that bug me a little bit and me thinking I'm being too generous, I give it a 9/10. It's a great episode, and a must watch for all Sideshow Bob fans. It's no Cape Feare or anything, but that's okay because it still tells a solid story and provides solid jokes.
