Glenn, live on BreeFM @11pm EST, Wednesday.
We listened to several versions of the song " Apache" and also some Wilson Phillips (see PLAYLIST . The producer of Wilson Phillips
went on to produce "Jagged Little Pill".
Can you name one song that has "We are gonna....." that has ever been good? It is a sign that you are in trouble, particularly if it is metal. Even for New Kids on the Block it was scraping the bottom of the barrel: "We are going to put you in a trance with our funky song......"?. Hanging tough was just bad. Glenn gives "We will rock you..." a pass.
You start thinking about one Wilson Phillips song and many of them are similar. Glenn got the song "You're in love..that's the way..." stuck in his head and then other Wilson Phillips pop up. Wilson Phillips did come out with a come back album but no one bought it.
Glenn talked about One Night in Bangkok. Has anyone ever heard another Murray Head song? Glenn then played samples from some other Murray Head songs. If anyone ever asks, just say no! What other "show tune" have you heard that had elements of rap in them?
Glenn talked about Steven Seagal's
"Girl it is all right" - sounds like Michael Bolton mixed with bad.
From Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Songs_from_the_Crystal_Caven
Songs from the Crystal Cave is a 2005 album by Steven Seagal, his first. Seagal is credited with "Lead Vocals, Rhythm and Lead Guitar" and appears on the cover and throughout the liner notes emotively playing and posing with a guitar. The style can be described as "outsider country-meets-world music-meets-Aikido." Many of the songs reflect Seagal's esoteric Buddhist and spiritualist stance.
Steven Seagal gave testimony in a court trial one time. The judge asked him what he did and he went into a long winded diatribe about his life and all the things he had done.
Brian Austin Green came out with an album in the 90s. Is there anything he cannot do well? On the subject of Brian Austin Green Glenn had a lot of thoughts and emotions when his character was killed off on Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles . After the season finale all that is mute. It was a pretty good ending that has Glenn excited for the show to come back for another season. (See the article linked earlier today). The way that they did it all makes sense if you think about it. It was an earth shaking twist to the mythology. The mythology is based on the idea that John Connor has to survive. What will "this future" be like? It will be a shame if it gets cancelled because it is the most interesting sci-fi series in recent years. The TV series has expanded on the mythology and it might even over Shadow the upcoming movie.
Dollhouse has been consistently good recently. He is curious to see the extra episode that will be on DVD.
If you are not watching "Breaking Bad " then you should be (as discussed two weeks ago). You need to start with Episode 1. It is the most dynamic and interesting show on TV currently.
Walter White turns 50 and is a high school chemistry teacher. His brother in law is a DEA agent who invites him on a ride along where he sees a former student (Jesse Pinkman). Later he gets together with the student and starts a meth lab. We have seen an evolution of Walter White taking control of his life and also going into a darker side of himself. At the same time we see Jesse become more empowered but also become more in touch with his humanity.
Glenn has heard good things about Harper's Island and is curious to see how the web site folds into the show. Most networks are not going to put there best material into webisodes when they make most of their advertising on TV. Even The Office online stuff was not nearly as funny. With Harper's Globe it is a little different so it will be interesting to watch the audience numbers.
Glenn watched Free Radio and it was cute. Better Off Tedd has been evolving. The last episode might be a launching pad for it to get really funny.
The events of the last week got Glenn thinking about the word pirate. Why did the word "pirate" become associated with copying media. Somehow it just does not seem like the best word for what people are doing.
Mathieas commented: "...an early reference was made by Daniel Defoe in 1703 when he said of his novel True-born Englishman : "Its being Printed again and again, by Pyrates" - wikipedia
Pirate radio makes sense. Why do we not hear more about the real modern day pirates up until this recent incident. We have heard much more about copying music than the real piracy in the World. The word itself did not have a very negative image up until recently.
Video pirates (amazon woman on the moon 1983)
The movie " Amazon Women on the Moon" was fantastic. Check it out.
