I’m sure you can’t help but remembering I thought that you’d be one not to forget

OK, Pepsi, lets not pretend the guy from black eyed peas is on the same level as Bob Dylan. I don't even like Bob Dylan and that commercial pisses me off.

And Pizza Hut - you're not fooling anybody. Your commercials are scripted. Nobody talks like that.

And while we're talking food, let's kill off the term "tucking in" when referring to eating. Don't know where that came from, I am only interested in seeing it go.

Whatever South Park does about Michael Jackson is going to be great. Can't wait for that.

Bands have to be broken up for at least 10 years before anyone can get excited about their reunion tour. Don't get me wrong, i'm psyched Blink 182 is back, it just seems like they were never really gone. Just kind of on vacation.

Which brings me to the Get Up Kids and their "reunion". I first thought they were getting back together for good and all that. Turns out that's not the case. They're doing a 10 year anniversary tour of "Something To Write Home About" and then their future is unknown.

I'm sure, it's just me, but the 10th anniversary of an album's release is not a good reason to get back together. It smacks of laziness and complacency to do this. The message I get from this concept is not "we're back and better than ever and we're gonna make some new songs and tour and all that good stuff". The message I get from this shameless money grab is "Hey, remember that good thing we did ten years ago? How about you all come out and kiss our asses about it for a little while. And after this, who knows? We'll probably break up again because everything after this record sucked anyway so we know for sure we can't write new material."

I really hope this isn't going to be a growing trend in music. That would get embarrassing really fast. I mean, Eve 6 is back together, but they're writing new music and moving forward. Are they gonna do a "Horrorscope" 10th anniversary tour next year? That would just be humiliating for all parties involved.

Stop living in the past. Prove that you can still write good music instead of just rehashing the old stuff. You wanna get back together, fine, but don't go sucking yourselves off about something you did 10 years ago.
