  1. Or you could have the foresight to know you're going to go through airport security and take all your heavy metal vomit image stuff off before you go. Moron.
  2. I have always said I love her voice. I just can't stand what she sings. She married Batman? Batman's first name is Jordan? Whoa. Learn something new every day.
  3. These are older than the genre you're looking for, but I like them: Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas ~ Judy Garland Santa Baby ~ Marilyn Monroe's version Baby It's Cold Outside ~ Dean Martin's version Run Run Rupolph ~ Chuck Berry
  4. How come there are no musical notes graemlins? We have every smiley you could want, but no half notes, quarter notes, etc. I think they would come in handy when posting lyrics.
  5. I don't know that it sucks. I personally don't like it. It's the negative energy. Music is about energy. I never really got into the whole death and destruction, kill kill kill stuff. I enjoy Iron Maiden and Alice Cooper. Maiden does cover the death issue, but not in a 'I want to kill everybody' way. More of a sadness about the death and destruction in the world. The Coop covers death a lot, but he's got a campiness about his stuff that makes it very tongue in cheek, you know? It's 9/10ths image anyway, these bands. A million tattoos and swinging their hair around and playing as fast as they can. I doubt they live their lives constantly growling at everyone. Generation probably has quite a bit to do with it, as well. Younger people are saddled with boundless energy, but haven't lived long enough to know where to channel it. To them, it's a release of pent up aggression and anger. Trouble is, they aren't sure what they're angry about, so these death/thrash bands give them a direction to feed that energy. In Sue's case, I'll take a guess that this is something Sue listened to a lot more in her younger days, so naturally, she still likes it. It's like any music you listen to when you're in your teens. It's what you develop your musical tastes from, so naturally, you're always going to like that stuff from your formative years. Sue's musical tastes have changed from her teens, but that base is still there. The foundation of your musical tastes are always going to be there. Of course, I could be wrong. Sue may have just discovered Slipknot yesterday, I don't know. I can't imagine myself, being 41, just now discovering thrash/death metal and saying "yea, I like that", because it doesn't groove with what I already have in my mind what constitues good music.
  6. Dork. How do you say dork?
  7. Heck, I whistled the Rug Rats theme for three years!!!

    Best pranks

    I've always been partial to the slapstick-style pranks. My older cousin would come home drunk, and I'd tape the doorway with clear, 2" wide packing tape. Maybe a dozen strips in all directions. He'd walk through the doorway, right through the tape, and it would stick all over hims face, arms, etc. It was especially great if he did it in the dark. LOL. Down at Talladega, here are a few: I rolled my cooler into my Pop's room, and pulled the drain plug, giggling madly as the wet spot on his carpet grew. One in front of his chair, the length of his bed, in front of his sink. Still giggling, know my Pop always walks around in his socks. Set his alarm for 3:30am. Call the front desk from his room, posing as him, telling them to ring his room every hour on the hour from 2:30am until 6:30am, because "I'm on a special medication I need to take every hour." Go into my cousin's room and take every lightbulb, put clear tape on the spout of his sink, so when he turns the water on, it sprays him. Take the batteries from his remote. Un plug the TV. Unscrew the cable wire. In my Uncle's room, point the shower head so it drowns him as soom as he turns it on, hopefully fully clothed. Load up all the doorknobs with vaseline. A handful of salt in his sugar container for his coffee. Bend the vent on the fan in the bathroon so it clangs really loudly when he turns it on. Odds and ends: Big cup of water, under the sheets, only to be found at bedtime. Pantsing one of my cousins in the airport. Water balloons, any time. Calling the front office and complaining about the noise next store, causing my cousin to think it was this old couple on the other side of his room. Re-enacting Jack Lemmon's Felix Unger scene in the diner, where he clears his sinuses. Honking very loudly in a public place. Crushing an entire box of cheezits and sprinkling them under the covers, and in the pillow case. My coup de gras, though, is the battery powered travel alarm, set for 3:45am, slid all the way under the bed, so the only was to get to it is to remove the mattress and boxspring. It beeps, and does not stop.
  9. You know, I borrowed this from a friend at work and burned myself a copy (yea,so sue me), and I have to say. It is flat out brutal. S&G are ok in small doses, but a couple hours straight, and I was ready to head to the mall and open fire. Not good.
  10. Wow. I didn't relize I knew (and liked) so many punk bands. The Pretenders? The Police? Punk? Really? I think my definition of what punk music is may be a lot more narrow in scope than everyone else's. What exactly are the parameters of what is considered punk music, anyway?
  11. Barber and Martin are perfect examples of the evolution of RB. Both have almost as many recieving yards as rushing. Westbrook, Holmes, Portis, McAllister, heck, more than I can think of right offhand. Catching the football is just part of a RB's job. Ok, now....linebackers. RJ will probably shoot me, but LT was overrated. Did he revolutionize the position? Yes. However, he took a lot of plays off. I would watch him basically mill around on some plays. It would drive me nuts how everyone would call him the greatest ever, when he didn't play every down. And all those sacks? Yea, I'd have a lot of sacks, too, if I got to get a ten yard running start, untouched. Great pass rushing speed is even more impressive when you've got a DE occupying two offensive lineman. And as far as Butkus goes, his reputation was made at the bottom of the pile. LOLOL
  12. So, it's the Wiggles now? When mine were 2-3 or so, it was Little Bear, Blues Clues, etc. If you had told me I'd know every character on Rug Rats, and actually had favorite ones, I'd have laughed.
