Willie's Off-Brand Web Journal: April 17-April 24, 2005

Tuesday, April 19, 2005:

From Smother.net: "Blending together indie rock, electronica, and the funky rock of Beck, Disclaimer is the work of one man named Chris Willie Williams. Vocally it’s real rough on the ears, then again more or less everything’s pretty rough here. Instead of trying to be Beck and pack as much weird and different stuff into one song [sic], maybe he should try to conquer the normal songwriting process first. Then he could concentrate on singing on key. -J-Sin"

Fair enough as far as the singing's concerned, I think. Though I'm not sure whether he's saying that the songs aren't solid enough to support the arrangements or just that he doesn't like "different" stuff. I'm not saying that dismissively; I personally don't think I'm particularly "different" or original, but I'll admit that I do like to go for unusual arrangements and noises most of the time, because that's what I like in the bands I listen to. So if it rubs J-Sin the wrong way, that's understandable. I'm just not sure what he means about "normal" songwriting. Oh well.

CURRENT MUSIC: Senor Smoke by Electric Six.

Sunday, April 17, 2005:

In the wake of the hilarious Ron Mexico scandal, here's the equally hilarious 1,159 Words/Phrases You Can't Put on an Official NFL Jersey! My favorites: ASS PUPPIES, BARF FACE, BEASTALITY [sic], CARRUTH, DEAP THROAT [sic], GAY MUTHA FUCKIN QUEER, GONORREHEA [sic] (NOTE: "GONORRHEA" is apparently fine), KOTEX, MATTRESS PRINCESS, PUBICLICE, SHITTER, TONGETHRUSTER [sic], TROTS, and URINE.

As you may notice, there's a lot of gay slang included on the list, and here's a really interesting article about that phenomenon, from the same site. Meanwhile, those of you with more prurient interests in the list may be amused by The Smoking Gun's wonderful collection of banned vanity license plates.

There's a periwinkle car in the parking lot outside my window. Didn't know they made those. They shouldn't.

CURRENT MUSIC: Trouser Jazz by Mr. Scruff.
CURRENT MOOD:
Hiccups.
CURRENT POINT OF PRIDE:
I was watching The Straight Story earlier, when I happened to glance out of my patio door, and I noticed my hick neighbor's hick friend trying to bean the happy friendly squirrel in my yard with an armful of rocks and pinecones. The "pride" bit comes in because I refrained from opening the patio door and whipping my beer bottle at Hick Friend's head, busting it open like a pinata to let all the excrement run out. Though I totally should've.
TIME:
6:29 PM.
