Well I got this guitar, and I learned how to make it talk

Current Music: none. how strange.
I have never seen the Beastie Boys perform "Sabotage" competently. Go ahead, go on youtube and find a decent performance of that song. Very strange. You'd think they would learn how to play their biggest hit but they always sound like something that might get a two star rating on Guitar Hero.

Reno 911 got canceled. I was bummed at first, but the show hasn't been the same for a while now. I never really liked any of the new guys. Maybe it's for the best. You know, before it gets sad.

Les Paul died. Not being a very serious guitar player or historian, I'm not all torn up about it, but I do like his thought process: "Hey, let's plug this in and see what happens!"

When you think about it, what he did was clearly the work of a crazy man. He took something that was considered to be as developed as it was gonna get and made it a million times better. He did this by adding electricity to something that had no business being plugged into an electric current. This would be the modern equivalent of someone figuring out a way to make a soccer ball electric. It doesn't sound like it makes any sense, but it could very well be the next billion dollar idea.

I am also going to nominate Les Paul for induction to the Man Hall of Fame. Just the idea of plugging something in to see what happens is pretty manly and when you take into consideration that he is in some way responsible for Metallica, Pantera and Iron Maiden is pretty fucking manly.

Preseason football is like watching a State of the Union speech. You watch it out of a feeling of obligation and it's actually interesting for the first 20 minutes or so but then you start flipping around the dial to see what else is on.
