Oh, shut up! Angry

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

He and his friends actually prefer music from my generation so there's hope.

Beiber will go by way of David Cassidiy and others...eventually no one will want to admit they liked him at all.

Then, it'll go back around as a joke.

Now the question is what is the legendary music of today?

I shudder to think of the possibilities. Especially when I look back at the "legendary" acts of the past. Some of the people that are remembered should have faded into obscurity about 5 minutes before their 15 minutes was up, but for whatever reason, we herald them as music gods.

They all have one thing in common, though. They were new and novel at the time and so people romanticize about how they "changed EVERYTHING, MAN!"

This makes me very nervous that people will someday think Miley Cyrus was one of the greatest musicians of our time...

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

Now I can honestly say I never did the big shoulder pads.

But I did have the hair.

That big messy Nina Blackwood look.

Got lots of dates, free dinners, and drinks with that look.

I had no issue with the big hair... at least not the kind that was on top of the head.

The other kind, however, I'm really really not sure how anyone ever found that sexy.

Good question. I've no idea as the kids only seem to play their music through headphones, so I've never heard what sort of music they're actually listening to. In my day we'd stick a LP on the hi-fi system and blast it so loud that even the neighbours would hear it.

You'd be surprised.... Back in the late 70's I was in the USCG - and did shipboard boardings in Alaska.. The Japanese guys were fanatical about older Playboy magazines - where the girls were "au natural"......We used to get a 1/5th of whiskey or vodka for an old Playboy....

Reason -- When McArthur wrote the Japanese Constitution after WWII ended -- he put in a bit about "No pornography" -- which was defined as "Showing pubic hair".... Consequently all Japanese porn had shaved actors......

Guys want, what they ain't got.....

Dumb, but true...

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

The horribly ironic part of that law is that there was so much hair, you couldn't actually see the part you wanted to. Instead, it just looked like every woman of the time had Gary Coleman's head in a leg lock.

Really? McArthur????

I had no clue.

Now, what important tidbit was just forced from my brain because of this entertaining nugget.

Consider

And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

I think so... I could be wrong -- but it seems he and his staff got the job of writing the new Japanese Constitution...

RE: Back in my day
Talk about choosing the worst examples of current musicians. Jeez you guys, there are plenty of great musicians today! Mentioning Milry Cirus instead of Foster the People, or Justin Bieber instead of Daughter is just plain silly. In fact, my kid and I have identical taste in music.

So many cats, so few good recipes.
