The Written Word

“Because you don’t have to burn books, do you, if the world starts to fill up with non-readers, non-learners, non-knowers? If the world wide-screen-basketballs and footballs itself to drown in MTV”.

Music Music, I Hear Music…

Honestly I can’t imagine my life without Music in it (not sure I want to)? It went way beyond just casual listening at an early age and has bordered on “obsessive compulsive” ever since. I can remember my Mother being horrified when I came up to her with the first KISS album and saying “I want this”… Say what you will about KISS (and I have a tendency to agree with most negative comments now) if you were in the ages of 10-15 in the middle/ late 70’s this WAS the band that got you into music, don’t try to deny it (I won’t). My room was covered floor to ceiling with KISS posters (quickly covering the STAR WARS wallpaper before it)……. Entering 7th grade AC/DC and Back in Black quickly became the “Grown up” thing to listen to by my peers. I took many jabs for still listening to that “kiddy Rock” KISS band. But I stuck to my guns for a long time (probably to long) and continued to fly the KISS flag pretty strong even as my tastes “matured” and developed over the years. When I saw the “original 4” members on the “Farewell Tour” in 1996 I closed the books on that chapter and I only wish that Gene & Paul had done the same. I still think Ace Frehley is the coolest MoFo to strap on a Guitar (and destroy it) and probably had more to do with me wanting to be a Musician (I play Bass) than any other musician out there?

I Got Your Blog Right Here

Ya see I’m not really into this whole “Blogging” thing, and Tweeting is for Birds so…
Aaaanyway, I figured I would at least keep an area for updates and random foolishness I may feel compelled to post at times (trust me they will be few and far between).
So I guess this will be the place for that all to happen?

Late To The Party Again Rock N’ Roll Hall of Shame
Well Gee, Alice Cooper and Tom Waits FINALLY get a nomination and Bon Jovi is on the same Ballet?
Anyone who knows me (you poor bastards). Knows I have issues with the supposed Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame… And once again they’ve given me another reason to want to burn the place down to the Ground!
My biggest complaint has always been not so much who is inducted, as my (or anyone else) personal tastes can’t/ shouldn’t come into play. But rather the order of who gets in when.
How is it that Debbie Harry and Chrissy Hynde got inducted years before Patti Smith?
There is no excuse for that as Patti Kicked the doors down that let any Female Rocker after Her walk on thru… and you can’t argue that!
RAMONES get inducted after Joey is Dead and both Johnny and Dee Dee didn’t last much longer. I was happy they got in (even if too late) but the fact that THE STOOGES should have been inducted BEFORE any of the “Punk” Bands that went in before still cranks me!!… I can argue THE NEW YORK DOLLS should be inducted as well.
Again it’s not a popularity contest but rather a acknowledgment of who broke the doors down and dared to push the boundaries of Music for the next generation to Build off.
This obliviously is not the case with whomever is in charge over there?
So BON JOVI get nominated but CHEAP TRICK is still being snubbed?… Ya that makes sense.
RUSH still no nomination… Does DREAM THEATER get in first maybe?
KI$$… say what you will. But the fact remains they were the biggest Band on the Planet for the 70’s (that’s all ya get Gene) and their influence on basically everyone after them (good or bad) is unquestionable!… I will go so far as to argue that Ace made more Kids pick up Guitars than Eddie Van Halen.

Alice Cooper should have been inducted at least 15 years ago (with KI$$) his influence is unprecedented.
Tom Waits should have been inducted at least 15 years ago as well on just shear quality of work (even if you don’t get what He does).
Bon Jovi?!….. Ok, my personal feelings aside. What did/ has that Band done to push the envelope of Rock N’ Roll?… They’ve been writing the same song for 25 plus years!!! Meh.

Previously on LOST
Well after 6 years of investment now what do I do on Tuesday nites?
I’ll rate the series as a whole and not the ending (which I was gonna be let down in no matter what to be honest).
Man what a fun ride it was no question!!… A++++
Wish they had done a better job answering some key questions instead of handing us even more though.
I didn’t want everything explained away (that would have been even worse). But just some major points that I think needed better “fleshing out”. I was more interested in the Mythology of the island than the “human” factor so to me it’s an unfinished puzzle which I’m always going to want to go back and finish.
