"Oh my gawd, we're being robbed." Or was that the Anne Meara character?

I haven't seen that film since it came out in theaters. *shakes cane* Damn you, faulty memory!

The amazing thing is, you can tell he's genuinely trying to sing it straight, but he can't. After you hear it half a dozen times it starts to sound right, but then so does Bugs Bunny's wrong note on the booby-trapped piano in that old cartoon... hold on a tic... http://video.aol.com/video/ballot-box...

Did someone already post/mention this?

Oh, and I'd vote Eddie Vedder onto the worst list. It's one thing to be artfully apathetic or reductive with a melody, but there's no art to his singing at all: his rendition of Last Kiss is the most mind-blowingly off-key single ever to hit the radio waves. It made me actually laugh out loud the fi...

Actually Livingston makes sense... I was thinking it was further west than it really is; I grew up 20 miles or so to the northeast of there. Perfect proximity to the Short Hills Mall... and the Meadowlands. I see, also, that it's in the heart of Roth country (Newark, "the Oranges") which O...

Believe it or not I've actually not seen a full episode of Sopranos (purposely, cause I want to watch the whole shebang from the beginning). I heard about the finale though (impossible not to have) and people were saying something about a movie. How does Livingston figure? Is that where Tony and fam...

Blue I'm just pointing out that the only double standards you SEE in the news are in cases like this, and in the end, what people think of this case will have less effect on the issue of legal parity than Britney's shaved head will have on public perceptions of substance addiction.

Call me cynical but this doesn't come as any shock... celebs and the wealthy are treated differently in lots of legal matters.

Being of weak mind and always prey to product positioning, I have a last-gen 20g iPod (3 yrs old) and it has changed my life, more or less. I see no need to keep my entire collection on one device, but 20g gives me a massive choice of stuff for the car and vacations. For my use, the best thing about...

In other news, I just walked my dog and it turns out that up the block there are TEN fire trucks, more police cars than I can count, including 2 prisoner transport wagons, two bomb squad vehicles, a half dozen ambulances, and six parked cars cordoned off with police tape.

Ahh, city life.

I don't see any reason for their records to cost more, at all. I've assumed that was just some side effect of their distribution and legal status... in other words, the same crap that's kept them from being properly remastered!

Oh sheesh, of course the dates are a matter of fact, but your take on what's more innovative, etc., is not. Yes, they did already exist, but I don't think most of their music would have, not in the same way. I submit they wouldn't have followed the particular sound thread, e.g., Venus In Furs, (not ...
