monkeyFLASHmonkeyBACK… Are You Slimmy Ray?

What if I had a blog back in 1999?  Might I have written a post like this?

Just when I thought March of ’98 couldn’t be far enough behind me, another shitty, catchy, cash grab, ego trip of a song (?) has appeared on the airwaves, like an audio boil on FM’s backside.  The prior culprit: Jimmy Ray’s Are You Jimmy  Ray?  This January’s cold sore with a backbeat: Eminem’s My Name Is.  See which one is more cloying and annoying:

Did we really need another self-referencing pop tune?  Is this Eminem guy spoofing Jimmy Ray or ripping him off?  Luckily, the Jimmy Ray hype machine didn’t last long, so here’s to an expedient Eminem melt-in-the-hand send off.

(SIDENOTE: In reality, I still don’t like My Name Is much… Guilty Conscience was the song that changed my mind about Mr. Marshall Mathers.  Conversely, I really liked Fred Durst starting with his Faith remake and then Nookie.  Funny how things work out, eh?)

The Alternative To Bruno’s Ass In Eminem’s Face

All right.  All right!  We get it!

Isn’t Bruno irreverent?

Isn’t Eminem so angry?

Personally, I prefer Andy Samberg and “Neil Diamond” singing about guys walking away from explosions like they just don’t care.  Kind of like I did from the hot mess that was the MTV Movie Awards.
