MacGruber is back

Hate to be the guy that says SNL sucks, but SNL sucks. Pete Davidson? Gross. That’s the only name I still recognize but I admit I thought McGruber was hilarious.

I did pay money to watch the movie, it wasn’t “great” but I laughed and that’s all I was hoping for.

Now he’s back. Did I want more MacGruber? Not really. Will I still watch it? Yes. – Forrest

Bands Covering Pink Floyd

I’ve been on a Pink Floyd kick lately. I remember they were playing Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia on June 2nd, 3rd & 4th in 1994 but I wasn’t allowed to go because my parents said I’d be exposed to drugs. My older cousins went and did acid the entire weekend so maybe they were right. Still, wish I could have gone. Check these out. – Forrest

Dexter returns this fall

Sometime around 2010 I thinik I was going through a pretty tough time with insomnia and even tried melatonin but nothing was working.  I’d stay up to like 3 or 4 in the morning unable to sleep every night.  Eventually I’d give up laying in bed and I’d flip through the TV for a few hours and Showtime was offering all the seasons of Dexter on demand for free.  I gave it a chance and -bam- hooked.  I was already a few seasons behind but caught up soon enough.  Next to “Lost” though I think it’s one of the worst endings of a TV series but now it’s coming back for a 10-episode series this fall.  I’m in. – Forrest

I’ve been everywhere man

Made famous by Johnn Cash, check this cover of “I’ve Been Everywhere” by the L.A. Rats which is just sort of just Rob Zombie with a different bassist, Nikki Sixx from Mötley Crüe. – Forrest

Wait, Big Black died?

I never got into “Ridiculousness” because I can’t watch people bailing on skateboards and breaking legs but I always liked “Rob & Big Black” and “Fantasy Factory”.  I sort of stopped paying attention but Big Black died in 2017!?  I had no idea. – Forrest

A freaking baby!!

Super cool story but I am not comfortable with that 6 month old baby on a boat!  They move so quick and figure out latches and gates faster than you think they will.  I’m kind of glad my parents weren’t into anything extreme like ridiing bulls or hang gliding. Learn more about the couple here. – Forrest

These 2 douches

I can’t believe these are real people, they’re so gross I thought it was a joke at first.  The tight pants, the sunglasses inside, wearing a winter hat in Bel Air, the shirt open down to navel, 6 elevators while talking about waste, bragging about square footage, the stupid looking shoes, name dropping his divorce.  I would be so disappointed if this was who I grew up to be.  Imagine what you could have with $500,000,000.  I’d rather have a couple of different cabins with land and a killer garage full of muscle cars and guitars.  The artwork in this house is ugly.  An Avengers poster would look better than that stupid wing sculpture. If you really wanted to change the world that doesn’t seem like a very good start.  A wall of vintage playboys?  So sleazy. I wouldn’t take this house if it was free, I’d rather keep living in my under 1k sq foot house in Boise. (The pods in the pool by the night club are kind of cool though)

Check out this Hendrix Cover

Guitar center hands Zakk Wylde a guitar, “Here’s an acousic guitar, not sure if you can play Hendrix on it though.”  Zakk laughs in reverb. I wish I could go back in time & show this to Jimi 10 minutes after he wrote it,  “Here’s a hairy biker dude that plays Black Sabbath you inspired, he might be drunk too”. – Forrest

Lost Tape

AI program writes songs for The Doors & Nirvana

Check these out, an AI program used data from other songs to write music for rock stars who died at the age of 27.  The robot wrote the song then they got real singers to voice the lyrics.  This story sounds like a bad idea but they really aren’t bad songs, I’d argue these are all better than WAP.

Jimi Hendrix

Nirvana

And this one I really like, The Doors! – Forrest
