Gome of the Week
Hey, Biff's gonna give me a break from the finger-pointing this week:
"How about people that post videos of themselves on Youtube playing a song. Because you know what? I don't care. When I search for a band or song on Youtube I am not looking for your terrible, lonely, pathetic, acoustic, usually not complete, version of it. I am looking for the band or song I am looking for. I don't know why but this always makes me angry. You know, if your band covered it live, maybe that is one thing. But some teabag playing 30 seconds of Europe's "The Final Countdown" on his sensitive acoustic is completely and utterly useless. And will actually get you less laid then you were before.
Okay, I just had to get that out."
This Week's Link That's Probably Not That Great
Self Pierced Guiche - Dude tells the surprisingly mundane tale of how he pierced his own taint.
This Week's Movie You've Probably Never Seen
Oh those silly Canadians. I have a simple rule when renting movies. If the main characters are kids and the rating is "R" then you can never go wrong. Nothing says entertainment like kids swearing. This movie finds our protagonists wanting to kill their parents because they are assholes and the hilarity that ensues afterward. I think my favorite line was, "Cut your hair. You look Jewish." I don't know why but I found that especially hilarious. This movie was actually surprisingly pretty good. The guy that played Wayne Gretzky's dad in the Gretzky movie that I reviewed a while back is also in this. Yay me!
This Week's Record You're Probably Not Listening To
The Members - Uprhythm Downbeat (1982)
The Members are a band that I've seen labeled as "punk," which is perplexing for a number of reasons. First of all, they're a seven piece. Second of all, that guy in the front there is wearing a leopard patterned beret. Thirdly, they sound like a shittier version of Robert Palmer. But, aside from the fact that they can't really nail done a definitive genre for themselves, this really isn't a terrible record. It's just not as good as say, Robert Palmer.
This Week's Hip New Slang Word or Phrase
gomenclature - The procedure of assigning names to the kinds and groups of gomes listed in a taxonomic classification.
Origin - This guy I met on the street. It's probably worth mentioning that he was wearing a lab coat.

"Dude, weak. You know it's only one of the original sisters, right? The one who looks like a dude."
"Dude, you are sadly trump teez for knowing that. Well, we can at least have fun mocking the crowd."
"Yes, you will really be able to brush up on your gomenclature."
