It may come as a slight surprise to some of you, but I am the genius behind every male popstar in the entire world. My mighty thews alone can fell a crowd with one pose. That’s actually how I caught Mrs Bookstooge. I struck a classic Arnie pose and as she swooned, I gallantly caught her. Her last conscious words were “Oh, my hero!” The rest, as they say, is history.
Yeaaaaahhhhh. Sometimes even I can’t believe the stuff I make up here.
Actually, I listen to classical on the radio and then Enya or Amethystium, or their like, while at home. IF I listen to anything at all. The only thing I care less about than music is art. If I never saw another picture in my life, I’d be ok. Except for manuals. I need pictures in those suckers. Have you ever tried to connect 57 different wires together with parts that the text refers to but doesn’t tell you what it is? How do I know how to cross wires 3,8,47 and 52 to wires 21, 32, 39 and 41 using the kroglian shaftometer? SHOW ME THE PICTURE!!!
Sorry, got a bit off track there. Anyway, just about the only time I listen to pop music is when a group plays it with classical instruments. One duo I like is 2Cellos. That link will take you to their site and a video of them playing some Game of Thrones compilation stuff.
The only popsongs that I can think of that I’ve heard and have ever stuck in my head are the following. All links go to music videos on youtube. I couldn’t figure out how to find just a plain bloody song. Don’t watch them, please. It’s a visual assault on your eyes that should be a Class 1 Felony.
Piece of Me by Britney Spears
Bulletproof by La Roux
Paparazzi by Lady Gaga
I’m not really sure why those 3. But I sat down and thought about it and those were the only ones I could name and actually kind of knew the tune to. I can listen to them looped 5 or 6 times and then I’m good for a year. I guess if the aliens ever attack us with cliched, heavy beat, sensualized music, I’ll be the Last Bastion of Hope for Humanity. Dude, that actually sounds like a great name for a band. Anyone want to start one with me? I call dibs on being the lead male vocal who throws fits at least twice a day!
Ok, lets end this farce of a post. I just needed to get some words out, so there they are.
