Goals Out The Ass

1. Tigers win 15-1 against the hapless Nationals and just like that we're tied with the worst city in the world for 1st in the Central. The offense is incredible and The Gambler comes back on Friday, cheating, scuffing and all.

2. Looks like Rudy's staff is having fun in South Carolina...blow anyone?

3. Bon Jovi has a new album? I didn't know AARP had a record label...

4. I didn't know that Randy Walker and Tery Hoeppner coached together at Miami for nine years...what are the chances? Either way, I'll say it again: RIP.

5. Going to Meeeeeechigan on Thursday for my friend Wheaton Joel's wedding (best friend growing up)...2 time D-III All American basketball player at Wheaton College in the 'burbs, and now he's getting married. I, on the other hand, am getting d-r-u-n-k and am a reigning 4 time All American at that.

6. The Black Keys were absolutely incredible on Saturday night in Austin, pure balls to the wall Rock and Roll in the best live music city in the world, can't ask for much more than that....Check them out or something is wrong with you. AWM: Despite their name, they are white and (gasp) from Akron, OH...even though I hate Ohio, I cannot resist the Keys.

The Black Keys are f'ing phenomenal. I saw them at Lolla 2 years ago, they absolutely blew everyone away.

I think they ultimately succeed where the White Stripes fail, which is they maintain blues-heavy riffs, and remain consistent in every song. Dan Auerbach has such an old school, blues voice...he makes you wonder if he was possibly beaten as a child, every note has so much emotion.

(of course the Stripes are great too...and that album, that came out yesterday, sounds great so far. Perhaps its harsh to imply that they "fail" at anything...I just happen to prefer the Keys)

Brown Buddy said...

Oh, and have you seen the American Express commercial with Shaun White (the snowboarder)? Thats a Black Keys song...

also, the Black Snake Moan soundtrack has a couple Keys songs...

Skurny said...

Yeah, I did see that commercial and was a little miffed...but I guess you gotta make that sweet moolah.

I might have had the Stripes album for a few weeks now...if I knew someone in the music industry or something. Either way, their best album yet in my opinion.

Stripes show at the Aragon goes on sale Saturday!

Why couldn't they have been name White Keys? Now that would be a band I'd liek to see.

Talking about dork rock sucks. Get a life losers.

So lets get this straight...you talk about "Slipknot" or whatever that gawdawful band is, and its ok. But we talk about a band, and simply by virtue of the fact that you've never heard of them, that makes us losers? Seeing as they are fairly well known, and you've never heard of them, wouldn't that make you a loser?

AngryWhiteMan said...

Slipknot is awful? That alone shows how bias you are. I have nothing more to say.

Brown Buddy said...

it shows how "bias" I am? How so? Do you even know what "bias" is? I'm going to bet...no

Skurny said...

Slipknot is easily one of the worst bands in the past 15 years.

AngryWhiteMan said...

You guys are both retards if you think that. Because you don't like the genre of music, it sucks. Idiots.

And BB, go fuck yourself. I wish I was as smart as you. Use that superior intelligence to get a girl. Oh wait, that doesn't work that way. Have fun being smart and lonely.

Maybe I just don't "get" Slipknot...but I'm pretty sure (and I'm not alone in thinking this) that there is nothing to "get."

Maybe its the growling instead of the singing...and the constant downtuning of the guitars...or the fact that they seem more concerned with shocking people (with their lyrics and their appearance) than they do actually creating something worthwhile. Whatever it is...I don't really take them seriously...I think they are a 9 piece Insane Clown Posse

But my opinion is irrelevent, actually. I don't mind that you are sticking up for your masked heroes. I do mind that you take it personally when we say we think they suck. And you aren't the only one who does this...my roommate always takes it personally when I tell him I hate 311.

Who cares what we think? I'm just a loser who can't get girls anyway, right?? It must be my vast intelligence that hinders my game.

And I'd like to add that I miss the Angry White Meltdowns. I'm going to try for one every day...
