The T3sk3y Defenestrator

Like I said..

I think a few people in Portugal don’t like Nickleback either.

Worst 50 Bands of All Time

Here is one websites’ opinion on the 50 worst bands of all time. I agree with about 90% of this list and had a good belly laugh out of some of the comments. Here are some of the best:

32 THE HOOTERS
The great folk-rock scare
Philadelphians Rob Hyman and Eric Bazilian assembled a quintet that specialized in a vile blend of folk-rock and New Wave, in the process proving that the mandolin is more irritating than the synthesizer.
Worst CD Zig Zag (Columbia, 1989)


28 CRASH TEST DUMMIES

They said Brad Roberts’s voice was so deep it could be heard only by whales. Not true, sadly
If you want to be recognized as serious recording artists with a whimsical, folksy bent, it’s probably best not to notch your only hit with a daft novelty song based around the world’s silliest lead vocal and title it “Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm.” The remainder of God Shuffled His Feet, this Canadian band’s second album, was much worse. They released I Don’t Care That You Don’t Mind in 2001. No one cared.
Appalling fact They’re Canadian.
Worst CD A Worm’s Life (Arista, 1996)

10 AIR SUPPLY
The sound of eunuchs sobbing
Disproving the theory that lightning never strikes twice in the same place, Air Supply contained not one but two mewling, lovesick softies whose name was Russell. In the early ’80s, the Australian duo’s gutless ballads — music so remorselessly fey it made Journey sound like Danzig — sent a generation of jilted lovers toppling into depression that was as clinical as the Russells’ music. Mercifully, though, by the end of the decade, the pair had cried themselves to sleep.
Appalling fact Determined to ruin the festive season, Air Supply once recorded a Christmas album.
Worst CD The Christmas Album (Arista, 1987)

.. and of course, the king:

4 KENNY G
This guy really blows!
Hated equally by jazz and rock fans, Kenny Gorelick’s limpid instrumentals and obsequious cameos helped turn the soprano sax solo into pop music’s most feared cliché. He started his career with fusion hack Jeff Lorber, and his 1986 album, Duotones, established a steady market for anodyne, minimal background music, an aesthetic that reached its zenith in 1997 when “The G” set a world record by holding a single note for 45 minutes.
Appalling fact He graduated magna cum laude from the University of Washington with a degree in accounting.
Worst CD Classics in the Key of G (Arista, 1999)

I’m up to 4, I think..

As a man, this kind of cracks me up. Warning – probably not funny for the ‘non-cavemen’ out there. 🙂

10 Things Every Man Should Do Before He Dies

I love the creativeness of the American spirit.

The Big Lebowski – the F*cking Short Version

Okay – this is brilliant. It’s the entire movie “Big Lebowski” condensed to two minutes – using only the F-Bomb dialog. I wouldn’t recommend watching this if you are easily offended – there is about 500 F-inheimers in a row on here..

Kenny G sux.

I know it, you know it, and Pat Metheny really knows it. According to a recent interview in JazzOasis.com, Metheny had a few kind, and thousands of not-so-kind things to say about Mr. G.

But when Kenny G decided that it was appropriate for him to defile the music of the man who is probably the greatest jazz musician that has ever lived by spewing his lame-ass, jive, pseudo bluesy, out-of-tune, noodling, wimped out, fucked up playing all over one of the great Louis’s tracks (even one of his lesser ones), he did something that I would not have imagined possible. He, in one move, through his unbelievably pretentious and calloused musical decision to embark on this most cynical of musical paths, shit all over the graves of all the musicians past and present who have risked their lives by going out there on the road for years and years developing their own music inspired by the standards of grace that Louis Armstrong brought to every single note he played over an amazing lifetime as a musician. By disrespecting Louis, his legacy and by default, everyone who has ever tried to do something positive with improvised music and what it can be, Kenny G has created a new low point in modern culture – something that we all should be totally embarrassed about – and afraid of. We ignore this, “let it slide”, at our own peril.

Ouch. That was in reference to Kenny G overdubbing himself over Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World”.

As my favorite joke goes..

Q: What did Kenny G say when he got on the elevator?
A: “Dude! This music ROCKS!!

Here is a link to the entire article: Pat Metheny on Kenny G

(thanks, Anderiv..)

Flower Urinal – What’s the point?

Wow. There is something that just isn’t right about this.

For your Friday enjoyment

Ah – what’s a Friday without a game that centers around making a nudist do tricks on a trampoline?

Despite the subject, it is work safe.. so enjoy!

The Bellagio – in Diet Coke and Mentos

For you would be Brainiacs..

Apparently, you can drop a few Mentos and get a really big reaction. Within a second after the splash – you get a tremendous geyser of diet coke shooting skyward.

For example:
Mentos and Diet Coke

Why does this happen? According to “Steve Spangler Science Experiments”:

When you drop the Mentos into the soda, the gelatin and gum arabic from the dissolving candy break the surface tension. This disrupts the water mesh, so that it takes less work to expand and form new bubbles. Each Mentos candy has thousands of tiny pits all over the surface. These tiny pits are called nucleation sites – perfect places for carbon dioxide bubbles to form. As soon as the Mentos hit the soda, bubbles form all over the surface of the candy. Couple this with the fact that the Mentos candies are heavy and sink to the bottom of the bottle and you’ve got a double-whammy. When all this gas is released, it literally pushes all of the liquid up and out of the bottle in an incredible soda blast.

Yeah, and it’s cool, too!

Now – go bananas with it. Take 101 2-liter bottles of Diet Coke and 500-some Mentos, and you’ve got the Bellagio’s fountain.

Those gentlemen are REAL AMERICAN HEROS.

Two Thousand Nine Hundred and Four. Exactly.

Well, I should be glad somebody thinks that it’s worth something..

LeapFish.com has a ‘Doman Name Value’ tool that estimates how valuable your domain name is. Out of curiosity, I checked out the priceless “t3sk3y.com” domain, and got the following analysis:

Combined Value Score: 44
Top Level Domain Score: 10
Unwanted Characters Score: 8
Dictionary Word Score: 3
Length Score: 12
Archive.org Score: 1
Google Search Results: 7
Yahoo Search Results: 0
MSN Search Results: 5
Search Engine Score: 10

Estimated Base Value: $132.00
Estimated Actual Value: $2,904.00

Hm. Apparently it really doesn’t like the 3’s in the name (apparently they aren’t 1337 enough!) and Yahoo! doesn’t like me either. Yahoo – guess what – nobody likes you either.

As a comparison, I checked some of the domains owned by colleagues:

  • 28thavenue.net: $11,354 (for some reason, LeapFish likes bicycle confessions better than bedhead or pinball)
  • andersonfam.org: $14,406 (nice job, anderiv!)
  • jayber.org: $19,154 (yay, Benski!)

Hm. Well – every parent thinks their baby is beautiful – and strangers can admit that some babies really are ugly. I think LinkFish just told me that my baby isn’t winning any beauty contests – by the domain name, at least.
