Hanson meets Smashing Pumpkins - No Really, I'm Serious

There is a really, really, REALLY odd musical Supergroup in the making. Someone introduced members of Hanson, the Smashing Pumpkins, Cheap Trick, and Fountains of Wayne - then said, "Hey guys, you should form a group!"

Maybe the name of their first song could be "I want you to want me to take Stacy's mom and M'Bob her tonight, tonight".

(Yes, I just manage to make a song title from parts or all of four songs by each of those original bands. I rock.)

The result? Tinted Windows.

And yes, I agree with the reviewer. The end of the world can't be far off. Although, I have to say, they didn't sound all that bad... hum...

Los Angeles is in Desperate Need of a John Galt.

This is a depressing look at the deterioration of Los Angeles. This once proud and wonderful city is sliding downhill. 20% of it's citizens are on some form of government assistance, and all the mayor does is preen for the cameras.

I went to college in LA, and lived there for several years. I've always had something of a love/hate relationship with the city, but it's most certainly sad to see it become so dysfunctional.

More on the Mayor HERE.

Ch-ch-ch-changes! Part II

Er... well, not so much.

Of course, I wasn't a huge fan of Bush, but O did run on the concept of "Change", didn't he? heh.
