Keith Urban – Stupid Boy

Posted in Music by microwavebiscuit on July 30, 2008

I know the song is a year or more old but every time I hear it I still get chills. It’s got me thinking – do I get chills because I am in fact a stupid boy or is it because it’s just a cool song?


Hey baby boomers – please hurry and die

Die Boomers Die
I’m awfully sick of watching sports on TV and being the recipient of advertising geared towards the boomer generation. You had your time, it’s now over. Yes, I appreciate the contributions made by your generation – especially the music. That being said, you are doing a terrible job as stewards of that music. I suppose at some point in my life I’ll have to hear Nirvana or Pearl Jam shilling for dick pills or hair dye but I’ve really had enough of the music of the 60’s in advertisements. So, if you will all please hurry up and die perhaps I can stop hearing the music of the 60’s being used as a metaphor for the greed of the 80’s while targeting you old folks. Hey is that Freedom Rock?

Bob Dylan and Depression

Posted in Music by microwavebiscuit on July 6, 2008

When feeling depressed is it better to listen to Dylan or not? In the plus column, “Blood on the tracks” is quite possibly the world’s greatest album to listen to ’cause Bob really gets it. Conversely, when you listen to Bob because you are depressed you are then reminded of the last time you were depressed and put on Bob. This of course is known as the Dylan circle of depression wherein the listening of Dylan because you are depressed brings back old depression memories causing you to listen to more Dylan which in turn brings back further memories and so on until you are no longer able to get out of bed.

I’m stuck with a sense of Deja Vu as though I’ve written this post before although it could just be the Dylan.
