  7. There's also a Triumph scene where he makes fun of American Idol hopefuls in Hawaii, then goes on to do the weather for the local news station. Pee-your-pants funny!
  8. I'll be praying for ya Darryl. I'm sure you'll be alright. Good luck!
  9. I think it might be a parody of a protest song. That definitely sounds like something BNL might do. What I do know is that it isn't about Iraq, because it came out before that war started.
  10. The loudness war can be blamed for the recording quality of a lot of "modern" albums. Ex: Californication. A great album, but the mix gives it sort of a fuzzy sound in the background.
  11. I don't think my computer likes the video thing very much, but my computer is a jerk.

  13. Is it wrong that I'm slightly attracted to her even though she's more than twice my age and often looks like she smells bad? ...

  18. He could put someone's eye out with that thing! As I am also still a teenager... Well, I've had a thing for Keira Knightley since the first Pirates came out. I used to have a Lindsey Lohan thing until I realized she's disgusting. Plus Keira is a much better actress.
  19. This is what Wikipedia has to say: The released version of the song is actually an edit of two different performances. The band recorded multiple takes of two quite distinct versions of the song. The first version was (reputedly) an attempt to emulate the acid rock sound of American bands like Jefferson Airplane, and it featured a relatively basic instrumentation including Mellotron, guitars, bass and drums. For the second version, recorded some weeks later, Lennon had opted for a much more complex arrangement (scored by George Martin) that included trumpets and cellos, along with the prominent sound of backwards cymbals during the verses. Reviewing the various takes, Lennon decided that he liked the first minute of Take 7 (the "acid rock" version), and the ending of Take 26 (the "orchestral" version). He wanted the finished master to combine these sections from the two versions, so he nonchalantly gave producer George Martin the task of somehow joining them together. The problem was that the two versions were played in different keys and tempos. Fortunately for Martin and his engineers, the faster version was also in the higher key, and so the two were reasonably easy to combine. The edit is subtle but detectable, at one minute into the song, though some CDs may show the edit at 59 seconds. (The widely-repeated story is that the first version had to be speeded up and the second had to be slowed down. Comparison of the original versions with the final one shows that both of the original versions were slowed down, the second by more than the first.) The pitch-shifting used in joining the versions also gave Lennon's lead vocal a subtle "off-kilter" quality
  20. Well I'm in! Just wondering, why are passing touchdowns only worth 3 points?
  21. I listen to Alice Cooper. Does that mean I'm more likely to kill babies?

  23. So now they're doing to Ray Charles what they did to Jimi Hendrix. I don't like that at all.
  24. That's the worst my nominations have ever done. No metal fans here at Songfacts?
