I’ve heard it told that all the really strange stuff we see out of Japan is even odd to the Japanese. So explain this. Who’s going to buy this stuff? One of the labels is someone getting crotch-stomped, for crying out loud!
I’ll even put this head of the Grape Tentacle soda.
If you’re going to sell out to the gamer geek market, this officially wins:
If I had the choice of bringing back one dead musician who died before his time, my answer would be the lead singer for Sublime. Not because I enjoy their music, but because that one album, 15 years later, is still severely overplayed on the radio. Had he had a few more years, we would have gotten the opportunity for crappier and crappier albums until he disappeared into obscurity. And I wouldn’t have to keep flipping stations every time Santeria comes on the radio.
You heard it here first. Spread it amongst your friends ( the name, not the flu)
Most bands who have at least moderate success manage only one great album in their career. So if you were trapped on an island (or any Dharma Initiative Isolation Installation TM) with your favorite band’s greatest hits album, what is the one other essential album you must also have? I’ll start:
Easy to decide:
Nirvana – Nevermind
Boston – Boston
Beastie Boys – Ill Communication
Guns N’ Roses – Appetite for Destruction
Moby – Play
The Amazing Royal Crowns -The Amazing Royal Crowns
Alice In Chains – Dirt
Portishead – Dummy
Gorillaz – Demon Days
Beck – Odelay
Coldplay – A Rush Of Blood To the Head
The Chemical Brothers – Exit Planet Dust
Daft Punk – Discovery
The Who – Who’s Next
Morphine – Cure For Pain
Bjork – Post
Jimi Hendrix – Electric Ladyland
The Black Crowes – The Southern Harmony And Musical Companion
Radiohead – OK Computer
Hard to decide:
U2 – Joshua Tree vs Achtung Baby —— Bono Fight!
The Beatles – White Album? Sgt. Pepper’s magical acid trip?
AC/DC – they are all the same so flip a coin?
Grateful Dead – which album is most flammable for your signal fire?
Incubus – CD may be sharpened so as to end your time on this miserable island.
…leave my childhood alone.
Star Trek was fine on it’s own, I don’t need marketers tinkering with it all to make it more appealing to todays 18 to 30 year-olds. The reselt has me refering to it as “Dawson’s Trek”
And I’m not even going to touch the ad for “C.G. Joe” I caught the other day on TV.
First in an occasional series. Slogans for, well… anything really, that I’ve though up and need to get out there so they actually exist.
Life: It keeps meat fresh!
