    I hate to be the bearer of bad news but you're a few weeks late.

    Mozz needs a sense of humor.

    My understanding is that this has actually been released as a single.

    Whoever wrote this did a nice job of creating a vocal melody that mimics Morissey’s signature move of holding on to the major third when the chord changes to the IV chord, creating a IVmaj7.

    'Twas Bret McKenzie of Flight of the Conchords fame. Academy Award winner for his song "Man or Muppet" from The Muppets (2011). :)

    A talented guy, though I like Jemaine Clement more. They're best when they're together.

    I'm a huge fan of ol' Steve.

    His abject depression and genuine dissatisfaction with life in general comes through loud and clear in pretty much every tune, which creates such a contrast with my reality; it makes me really happy I'm not him.

    I always feel a lot better about myself after I listen to The Smiths or any of his solo stuff :cool:

    I'm still waiting for him to release a tune or album entitled Sucks to be Me.

    Clement’s performance of “Shiny” as Tamatoa is my number one Disney villain theme song. The Moana soundtrack is actually great front to back. It’s Lin Manuel Miranda’s best work, IMO.



    A clear Bowie tribute, I think.

    I suspect a lot of these guys (the ones with huge success) are living seriously unpleasant lives.

    I try not to think about it too much. Just like I don't wanna think too much about the life of the chicken who went on to become the fried chicken I prepared and served.

    Many years ago I had a unit commander who wanted to illustrate to the troops the difference between being involved and being committed.

    Here's the example he used:

    "For breakfast this morning I had eggs and bacon. There was a chicken involved. But a pig was committed."

    That has stuck with me ever since.
