Crue: We're not quite dead yet. We're getting better! We feel happy!
Now that Motley Crue has announced their last tour ever, one has to ask, "who the fuck cares?" Is this supposed to be some kind of sad breaking news story, like a mass shooting?
I can't imagine how long it's been that someone even bothered to download their music illegally. Of course, if you grew up in the 80s listening to them and other hair bands, it'll make you sad that you are now old.
Just think, since grunge hit in the early 90s, record companies have wanted nothing to do with bands like MC. So for about 25 years Motley Crue has had absolutely no relevancy in pop culture. Big deal. Quit.
Also, anyone who appeared on the 2014 Grammys should admit defeat and retire. The American music industry is a massive 72 train train-wreck. So it actually makes you wonder, is there room just plain rock music anymore? It doesn't seem that way. Guitar, bass, drums and a singer has gotten just plain boring. It's all been done. Like beating a dead horse with a dead horse.
Having said all that, if you're looking for something a little different to listen to, take gander at one of my old posts. Music for manic depressives
That's right, no more holidays. No more gallons of turkey soup. Time for the seemingly permanent 'case of the Muuundays.' And if you also live in a snowy area, a four month gradient of gray to black that covers the sky.
This is also the time of year that you realize your job will consist of same monotony no matter what awesome "goals" you set for yourself for the yearly review.
So congrats. You've made it another bloody year. And if you need a little help with your cubicle depression®, maybe modern pharmaceuticals can help you out.
The next time you're at the local watering hole, I hope you play 'Spot The Celebrity.' This awesome game, that I made up btw, is the most fun you can have at a bar with your clothes on. The object of the game is to spot the celebrity look alike before anyone else does. You must use a smartphone to provide evidence for your submission. The ultimate goal of the game is to get a picture of the fake celeb without alerting him or her.
So far, here are some of the best:
Allstate Insurance's Mayhem:
Howie Long, Mark Twain, and Sean William Scott:
Other celebs seen to date:
Randy on 'My Name is Earl'
Luckily, for me and my cohort, we are the bar staffs favorite customers, and they also are in on the game. When Sam Waterston comes in, we all hum the Law and Order mid scene, "dum dum" music
