Ke$ha was, at one point, part of the LA punk scene.

No one at BMI got the joke, and, thinking the track was pure genius, BMI signed her. After being signed, Ke$ha decided that she liked getting paid for basically just screwing around in a recording booth and acting like a jackass. The jury's out as to whether or not she's started believing her own act.

I work in a toy store, there is no way I'm ever clicking on One Direction, ever. :-D

The local Walgreens used to sell One Direction bobbleheads right next to the checkout aisle. They became much-sought-after items among the local irony-obsessed punk community.

No, I'm not making this up.

How does Google know things? I was looking at a map of San Francisco, and it had a marker on the Metreon with Dec 21 4:30. I got Star Wars tickets there for that day and time off Fandango, but how does Google know that?

Probably the same reason that Google knows I'm going to be looking up "He Tried To Kill Me With A Forklift" when I type in "he t--."

Work quote of the day, an exchange between newbie "Jeff" and journeyman "Carl"--

Carl: "And we all know that Jeff here ain't no Albert Einstein..."
Jeff: "Hey! I'm way smarter than Einstein! I'm like a rocket guy, or something. Rocket scientist. Yeah."

Burglary update #3: GC has decided that the best recourse for for her theft problem is to lock all the first-floor sliding glass doors in the apartment complex. None of the windows or man-doors are to remain locked, and the thefts all occurred in the garages and job trailer. Progress!

Cranes? This ain't no high-budget operation here, man.

I once watched a guy in a JLG lift trying to bring a bunch of pallets of shingles up to the roof, but the lift kept rocking back and forth, so they had to get another guy to put the bucket of his excavator on the back of the lift so that it wouldn't fall over. Super-high-tech, right?

I like that the one individual who insinuated the other to be unintelligent in David's story not only used the word "ain't", but a double negative as well.

I'm not a Grammar Nazi, except with people who claim intellectual superiority.

For example: a friend of mine received his teaching certificate in English, and proceeded to talk about how he can now officially correct others when they're speaking wrong on Facebook; legal requisites to get annoyed with your/you're/yore mixups, and the like.

I pointed out that, in that paragraph of announcement, he ended one sentence with a preposition, and he used "me" in a subject phrase where "I" should have been used.

It was thoroughly enjoyable.

I don't do it to most people, though. Nobody likes that guy. (Also, I know people would just wait to pounce on me for the same.)

Don't act as if you're not considering doing it right now. I know you are!

More like here's a burned out house, a shovel, a rickety ramp up to the truck (No dumpster), oh and those clumps of fur, yeah those were the dogs, I'll check up on you later.

The concert went very well, now that they're in middle school, you can actually tell what they're playing, and this one kid was totally getting into playing his upright bass, that kid's gonna be in a band someday.

Well, I'm now well past where I last watched in RvB. This story got grim pretty quick. I mean the humor's still definitely there, but the overall tone of the show got really serious with actual plot and storytelling.

Funny work story

** spoiler omitted **

My favorite:

Q: "Why don't you have to work overtime like the rest of us?"
A: "Because when I'm working I focus on what I'm getting paid to do and I get that done BEFORE goofing off..."

I would never claim that I don't goof off at work (this post is evidence enough to the contrary). I just first make sure that I've done enough work to make my boss happy, THEN I goof off...

this can be very difficult to see from the outside looking in. Certainly been on both sides of that window professionally. On the down side, this is how old boys networks get started, on the positive side, it's how people develop good time management.

interesting. Marketing tends to trump talent quite often (which is a talent by itself). That said, if there is anything high school band taught me(especially band vs orchestra) it is that power resides where people think it resides- skill is only one part of the equation.

Then again I've been reading a LOT of M20 in the past 24 hours so I'm a bit coffee table philosophy at the moment.

I still remember the Beastie Boys being a really pretty crappy punk band until they released a "parody" rap song...

Dwight Yoakum used to be in a punk band.

Tom Morello was in a band with Eddie Vedder when Vedder left to join Pearl Jam, called Bad Radio I believe.

Tom Morello also tried out to be the Guitarist for Poison when their guitarist quit, but was told he "didn't have the right look"

I also have a CD with Tom Morello and Chad Smith (drummer of the Chilli Peppers) playing " Wu-Tang Clan ain't Nothin' to F~~& Wit" with the Wu-Tang Clan.

My mom went to high school with Cheap Trick, with my aunt having dated most of the original line up.

One of my best friends in high school, his dad's motorcycle gang sold drugs to Cheap Trick.

It's a small (f+%$ed up) world.

I took my grown children to see Santa Claus and the Ice Cream Bunny at the theater yesterday. So, it was actually the RiffTrax version of the movie, and it was absolutely hilarious.
