I thought that this was particularly funny, especially since I despise Evanesence

So, in reading my morning Web News, I happened upon MSNBC and looked at the Top 10 list of annoying Songs on the radio. Now, to be honest, I really don't listen to the radio, so most of these songs are lost on me, although Fergie and Gwen Stefani's singles made the top five of the list (These are two women for whom I would like to see nothing but abject failure, fading into obscurity, and eventual employment in really bad, really violent, midget porn.)

Anyway...(Sorry; Rant) an Evanesence song was also on the list, and the comments by the writer about the song/band in general was REALLY funny:

Call Me When You’re Sober," Evanescence

You know that one girl from school who was absolutely certain she could sing, but really the only thing going for her was a powerful set of pipes capable of blotting out all other sound on the choral risers? And mean boys would make fun of her, but that didn’t stop her from bellowing every song on the radio? Well, now she’s in Evanescence, a sadly misguided group that thinks it’s rock or goth or something, but really it would make a great Heart tribute band. And apparently she’s mad at some guy.

That last sentence is magic! I love it so.

Merry Christmas!

Really Sad Day

Peter Boyle died today. Now, while many of our younger crowd know him as the Dad on Everybody Loves Raymond, I will always remember him from Young Frankenstein and Johnny Dangerously, two comedies that figured pretty heavily into my youth.

He was really good at what he did, whether he was playing a bit part, or a featured role.

I will miss him.
