  1. Is there actually a channel where you can see videos??

    I know back in the 80's I used to watch MTV religiously. If a song came out that I liked, I couldn't wait to see the video. It seemed like more of an "event" back then. I don't even care anymore.

    To answer the question, the video rarely affects my fondness of a song. To me, a music video is more of an expression of the director instead of the artist.

  2. Being a big INXS fan, I've watched the new show. These people are pathetic!! They're the best they could find?

    I was looking forward to Wednesday's show when the bottom three were going to sing INXS songs. Needless to say I was disappointed. I am now of the opinion that these people should never be allowed to sing another current INXS song. It just feels blasphemous to me. There will never be another Michael Hutchence.

  3. I don't know about this one either. I've always been an INXS fan so I'll probably watch it. It could turn out to be really cheesy.

    I just hope they don't go into this thing trying to find the next Michael Hutchence. Ain't gonna happen!

  4. Are you talking about "In The Air Tonight" by Phil Collins?

    There's this urban legend that it's about a boy drowning and it being sung to the person that watched him drown and didn't offer help. I believe the story goes that Phil was too far away or too stoned to help and witnessed this person's selfishness.

    The true story is it's about his divorce from his wife at the time.

    Go to this link and read about it:

  5. Ron Jeremy did host a competition to find the next great female porn star. I forget what it was called. It was sort of an American Idol type competition. Maybe it was called "Porn Idol" or something like that. It was just for the ladies though. We all know there's only one requirement for male porn stars, and yes "size does matter". :laughing: :laughing: :laughing:

  6. I understand all the arguments in defense of the Beatles. I've heard them all before. I just don't like their music. Simple as that.

    I don't think KISS is overrated, per se. They've always been what they claimed to be, if that makes any sense. I do think nowadays, however, that they have become a parody of themselves.

  7. Totally wrong. won't try to reason with you; just do me a favor and take a listen to the White Ablum. compare to what you here in today's rock.

    I've heard the White album. I've heard Sgt. Pepper's. I just don't see what's so great. I'm not going to sit here and say that they weren't one of the most influential bands from that time. I just don't like them and don't see what all the fuss is about.

    A couple of my favorite bands, U2 and The Police, are getting bashed around on this thread. While I don't agree with the opinions, I respect them. I don't feel the need to question why somebody doesn't like U2. It seems that Beatles fans sit there and stare at you with their mouth hanging open when you say you don't care for them. That's one more reason that fuels my dislike for them. They're held in such reverence, it drives me crazy.

  8. In my earlier days I was into The Smiths, U2, and the Police. The Smiths are a great band for a depressed teenager. I loved U2 because their songs had meaning. I first heard The Police through a friend of mine and I was hooked. All three of these groups had songs that I really related to and helped me find strength in during those difficult adolescent years.

  9. A rat? :laughing: :laughing: :laughing: I thought it was a bunny or a puppy or a teddy bear! I just asked my hubby and he says it´s a rat... well, rats can be friends too, it seems... at least for Michael Jackson!

    Michael wrote it for the movie "Willard" which is about a guy that has all these rats in his house. He talks to them and gets them to kill certain people. I saw the remake with Crispin Glover.

    Anyways there's these two rats that are sort of the leaders. One's name is Ben and I think the other one's name was Socrates.
