It’s Always “Smells Like Teen Spirit”

May 28, 2007

I hereby decree…

It’s always “Smells Like Teen Spirit”!

Always. No question. No doubt. Hell, was probably true before the song even came out. Whenever a radio station is doing a big ass top some-number list of greatest alternative rock songs (provided it includes the 1990’s, if it were just this decade, it MIGHT not be on there, but no guarantee on that), then Nirvana’s famous “Smells Like Teen Spirit” will be number one.

So, yeah, DC 101 just did a huge ass Top 500 list this weekend of “greatest alternative rock songs of all time”. I didn’t even know they were doing this until yesterday, when they were in the 140’s or something, but ever since all I could think was “Smells Like Teen Spirit” will be number one.

And it is. Just now finishing, actually. No surprise. #2 was Pearl Jam’s “Jeremy”. #3 was Nine Inch Nails’s “Closer”. Then a bunch of other stuff.

DC 101 will post the full list on their website tomorrow, apparently. I’ll be there to snatch it and check out the whole thing, and post it here for you. I’ll link to it, but knowing them, it’ll only be up for like a day. I’ll immortalize it here with some notes as to which songs are awesome and you should like along with songs that suck and you should hate. Got it?

What do I think of “Smells Like Teen Spirit”? On one hand, sounds like teenage stereotypical crap (maybe, I’m not sure if anyone actually knows what that song is about). Don’t know. But, shit, if fucking Paul Anka covers it (badly), you know it’s made some headway!

Speaking of long ass lists, I still have the top 500 songs WHFS (who is no longer around, which sucks, they’re a fucking Maryland legend!) compiled at the end of 1999 of best songs of the 1990’s. Yes, of course, “Smells Like Teen Spirit” is number one. I’ll post that list, too. Why not? 😀

This has been Day 5 of the 100 Days of Summer, Round 7.

Let Them Not Eat Meat

May 27, 2007

You know what I’m sick of? The stupid little “controversy” over vegetarianism. Everyone has their own little ridiculous assumptions every which way, and they’re all so dumb. So let’s get a few things straight.

For one, people choose to be vegetarians for a LOT of reasons. It doesn’t always have to do with said vegetarian not wanting to kill animals, dumbass. Could be a religious thing. Could just not like meat. While recognizing that the meat is “already dead”, could just not like the idea of eating animal flesh in general. Could be all sorts of reasons.

Russia, STFU

May 8, 2007

Apparently a bunch of Russians are all pissed off at Estonia because they moved an important statue or something. The statue was some kind of pro-Soviet symbol in Tallinn, Estonia, that all the Russians living there liked it because it was like a sign of victory for them. Estonians didn’t really care for that, since to them, anything pro-Soviet was supporting the days when they were still part of the whole USSR.

But they didn’t destroy the statue. They merely moved it to another spot.

Doesn’t matter. Russians are still all furious at them and protesting and boycotting and cutting off trade and whatnot. Looks like it could be a nasty European Union issue.

Those Russians, though. Seriously. I mean, I could see if the Estonians destroyed the memorial or something like that. No, the memorial is FINE. It’s merely in a different spot. What the hell is Russia’s problem? Goddamn, doesn’t matter where you are in the world, you’ll still find people getting pissy over stupid shit, and in great numbers.

Okay, yes, I’ve been reading The Economist and greatly enjoying it. So sue me.

My Birthday

May 6, 2007

I hereby decree…

It’s MY birthday!

That is, it’s MY birthday and nobody else’s! :doitnow:

Anyone else born on May 6? They’re lying. Only I was born on May 6. It’s MINE!

I’ve been known to emphatically claim odd things as mine and mine alone (rocks, phrases, trees, etc.), but so what, May 6 is MY birthday. Let’s review.

May 5: Cinco de Mayo plus birthday of millions and millions of people.

May 6: MINE!!! Nothing else!

May 7: Birthday of millions and millions of people.

You get the idea.

All these usurping jerks? Lying. They miswrote the date on their birth certificates or something. They think they’re nearly as cool as I am. Screw them. That’s a pipe dream. May 6 is mine. MINE!

Remember that. You meet anyone who isn’t me who says they were born on May 6, you can tell them surely that they are lying pieces of crap. Now you know. 😀
