Hey, Did You Realize The 80’s Were, Like, 30 Years Ago?

So this happened all the time, even though we like to pretend it didn’t.

In Britain!  I meant to say it happened all the time in Britain!

We were way cooler over here in America…

This happened three years after that video. Why is it weird his legs are on top?

Was This Genius Or Was I That Drunk?

Last night was the first time I ever watched Fox’s ADHD (Animation Domination High Definition, I think).  This was the opening:

I was blown away.  It was succinct.  It captured the week’s pop culture highlights.  Including a potential SPOILER.

But I was extremely drunk.  My Detroit Tigers had almost completed a post-season no-hitter against the Boston Red Sox, which was also a 1-0 victory.  I honestly had to have had almost (if not exactly) ten Blue Moons.

So is this brilliant?  Click each day for the relating link:

Let me know what you think in the comments.  I’ll be at the bar.

The Feds Finally Got Something Right

Why the long face? More importantly, why the big heads?!

I’m from Detroit.  Born and raised.  I lived in the city 89.47% of my life (I did the math.)  So it brings me great pleasure to know that my hometown’s former mayor, Kwame Kilpatrick, has been sentenced to 28 years in federal prison for a myriad of fraud charges, while I escaped one – that I voted for him his first term.

Instead of pooring pouring one out for Kwame, I thought this song might be a better send off:

Former Kwame posts:

#BeenThereDoneThatAlready, Subway!

Well that didn’t take long.

The so-called-artists of Subway apparently don’t exist in their advertising department.

Take a look at their latest commercial:

Why am I up in #arms, you ask?  Jimmy Fallon (and Justin Timberlake) already took a crack at this last month:

But what should I expect from a place that makes sandwiches?

Hibbidy-Wah?! Can This Be (Pause Like Chandler) Anymore Outdated?!

1992 doesn’t sound that long ago (unless you were born in or after that year of course), but this anti-piracy ad certainly dates the date:

Speaking of outdated, check out this meeting of the old and the new.  The ending before the ending is pretty good, and of course, so is the middle.  If you’ve never heard Leonard Nimoy singing the original version of the song he’s singing (no spoiler), then click here.  Otherwise, enjoy:

Musical Musings… What’s With All These V’s All Of The Sudden?

I was waiting to write this (as well as many of my other posts) until I could remember the fourth band I’ve noticed going crazy.  Allow me to introduce to you a possible new V trend.  Band names that contain unnecessary V’s:

Now I’m starting to get really mad because the fourth band replaced the U with a V like CHVRCHES did.  Maybe y’all can help.  Here are their videos to fill space:

When I do figure it out, I’ll be sure to add to the comments section.

And if you’re wondering how can I call this letter injection an impending trend?  Let’s see… do you remember the likes of Blink-182, 311, Sum 41, SR-71, Matchbox Twenty, 3 Doors Down, Third Eye Blind, Eve 6, Eiffel 65, Seven Mary Three, Finger Eleven, and Maroon 5?  Notice any pattern?

Oh wait!  Maybe it’s not the letter V… what if it’s a Roman numeral?

Maroon V anyone?

Coinkydink Or Coinkydonk? Liberal Borrowing 2013!

For those of you that are new – I call stealing something in the name of art liberal borrowing.
For those of you that knew – what didn’t you tell the new people?

My latest discovery comes in the form of Hey Rosetta’s Red Heart.  Though it’s not as cut-and-dry cut-and-paste as some of my cases, I think you’d be remit to not admit a blatant similarity to Better Than Ezra’s In the Blood.  Take a listen to the opening melody structures and meet me down below:

Okay it’s more like a liberal liberal borrowing.  Or maybe one just reminds me of the other.  Kind of like how the opening of Churchill’s Change reminds me of Dean Martin’s Sway:

Oh what do you know about anything!
