  2. I voted for the uncle's weird farm ( why does no one know about it? ) but I'm also a fan of Junior's farm and Maggie's farm ;)

  4. Foo Fighters- In Your Honor (Disc One) (8/10) I feel this first half is pretty strong. Loads of attention is given to the big hit Best Of You, but for my money, the best song on this disc is the explosive and addictive DOA. Excellent stuff. Foo Fighters- One By One (6/10) Killer moments, filler moments. Not a bad album, not a great album. Times Like These is in contention for being my favourite FF song. Foo Fighters- Wasting Light (10/10) Foo Fighters- Sonic Highways (10/10) The band's best albums in my opinion, gosh I love them both and they get better and better with replays! I have particular fond memories of Wasting Light, as I saw them on tour for that album cycle and it might be the best gig I've ever been too. Sonic Highways might be my favourite FF albums, period.

  5. I voted for Barchetta, but even though this song doesn't have "farm" in the title, this might be the farm-est song out there.

  6. Is that the new album? yes it is I'm not a huge fan either. My roommate was, but they were a little too quirky for me in the early to mid 90s. I think Californication is their best album. Californication has great songs but the brick walled to death production leaves me with no choice but to put Blood Sugar Sex Magic over it. You practically can’t enjoy Californication on headphones, it’s just too much. I'm not an audiophile, so I personally don't pick up on this. But I've heard that complaint about the album before. Death Magnetic too. IMO it’s not the kind of thing only audiophiles can pick up on. A lot of albums accused of being too loud really aren’t all that bad, and the average listener will never notice. But try listening to Californication loud on headphones sometime and I bet you’ll hear what I’m talking about. Crash cymbals just distort into a blur of white noise, even quiet guitars just pierce through the mix, every instrument seems to be fighting for room to breathe. It’s especially obvious if you compare it to something really well produced, like Moving Pictures. I'm not an audiophile but even I can hear how ridiculously loud and brick walled the production is on Death Magnetic. It's one of the reasons I probably like Hardwired better even though Death Magnetic might be the consistently better album. What were they thinking with that production? How could veterans of the music world possibly think that was ok to do?

  7. I'm not familiar with the farm in Bad Motor Scooter. Hard to believe it could beat the one in Red Barchetta though. Especially if we're talking about lyrics written by Hagar vs ones written by Peart.

  11. Grunge was always a dumb label. AIC and Soundgarden were always metal to my ears. The Sabbath influence is massive on both. A lot of Soundgarden's riffs are straight out of Tony Iommi's book. Layne's vocal style is kind of reminiscent of how creepy and strange Ozzy sounded on the first couple of Sabbath albums. Pearl Jam is just a very good hard rock band. Nirvana was shitty garage rock who's real untapped potential turned out to be the guy who played drums for them. They get far more credit than they deserve for starting the whole musical movement while AIC never got enough. They released Facelift a year before Nevermind and had a massive hit with Man In The Box before anyone knew who the f**k Nirvana was. If AIC didn't hit it big first the door for the other three Seattle bands to make it huge very well could not have been opened. Oh yeah, f**k Nirvana if I didn't make it clear before. I never got the big deal with Nirvana. ESPECIALLY Kurt. Not an engaging lyricist or singer IMO. Dave's drums to me make Nevermind. i LOVE his feel so much. The first 3 tracks on nevermind i enjoy. than i'm sorry to fans but the album bottoms out till Something in the Way. Dirt is infinity rimes the better record AND Facelift 2. Mick Cobain's lyrics are some of these most nonsensical and random ones I have ever heard. His lyrics sound like they were written by a drunk middle schooler who was discovering new words but didn't know how to form sentences properly yet with them. didn't he start obsessively smoking weed as a young teenager and then never stop? that would explain why, he stunted his brain. there's this really funny solo album that's a collection of his reciting stories of his youth and other things, in one of them he explains how he was desperate to get laid so he tries having sex with this dimwitted special girl at her house, he ends up not going through with it but rumor catches the schoolyard anyway and he begins to be bullied with the nickname "retard f***er" i read the lyrics to nevermind. i was like da hell you on about?.......i don't get the kurt worship......saiis right by me.

  13. Wow, even you don't care for it? Perhaps I was exaggerating a bit, lol. I gave it a fair listen, just not my cup of tea, I guess. I did listen to it right after hearing the Aerosmith live release from 1971, which really cooked. Could be one of those albums that you revisit later on and will resonate. What are your thoughts on it? I think it's pretty boring and Alex is much better than this. The girl is a good singer and there's a couple decent songs but nothing stands out as must listen.

  16. Well, I tried listening again and have given up on this. From me, what it boils down to is - a) If I didn't know that Alex was on it, and I started listening to it, would I give it the time of day? ...... No b) Am I likely to rush out and buy it? ..... No It stops here for me.

  21. For Gilbert Gottfried, no joke was "too soon", and for a good reason. You can do jokes about the Lincoln assassination and the Titanic, and no one says anything because everyone involved is dead, and their grandchildren are dead. I actually think that’s in worse taste. You’re saying, ‘Screw all those people who died, I waited for it to become unimportant to us.’ When I do a joke about September 11, or the Japanese tsunami, what’s funny is that it shocks the audience. They are responding to the fact that it’s tragic, and you’re acknowledging it.” [2-2016] I’ve always said tragedy and comedy are roommates. Wherever tragedy’s around, comedy’s a few feet behind them, sticking his tongue out and making obscene gestures. When you go to a funeral, the guy at the podium will say embarrassing stories about the guy in the box, and people will laugh. People lean over to the person sitting next to them with a smirk on their face, and the other person will hold their hands over their face like, "Oh, I shouldn’t be laughing at this." [9-2019] Gilbert, you left us too soon.

  23. Grunge. That's it. i always underrste this era of music. maybe it's cause i lived through it. but this era had some banger music. i never really liked the term grunge and see it as just marketing cause all these bands all highly different and distinct. Nirvana-I hear like a 1960's pop beatle like edge to them just with distortion added Soundgarden-Dirtier almost garage rock with a tinge of Psychedelia Pearl Jam- Has a rootsy folk-ier thing going even on Ten you can hear it. Sometimes to me it's Petty-esque. Alice In chains- heavy sabbath King's X vibe here. with i think the best heaviest solos. so yea there's other bands but to me they're all distinct and the grunge label does a bit of a dis-service to them. have to say my least fav is Nirvana. i respect the influence and impact but they don't do much for me. Fav far and away is Alice In Chains. they just have a little something extra the other bands don't have. Dirt is my fav album of the era easily no contest. pearl Jam is good too but for me they REALLY flame out after the first three. Mick

  35. [About his infamous 9-11 joke] It was a couple of days after September 11th, and people were booing and hissing, one guy yells out, "TOO SOON!".... which I thought meant that I didn't take a long enough pause between the set up and the punch line..... ....and then I figure, "Why not go to the bottom level of Hell and do the Aristocrats joke?"
