That is a good one man....
Sorry, but Totino’s Party Pizza is absolutely the worst.
It's pretty bad but there's a nostalgic simplicity there. Like school lunch and a time when we still had some innocence.
AFAIK Wes can't play well enough these days to save his life.
So unless you can't play either, in which case you play no better or worse than Wes plays, you probably play better than him.
The problem with objective criteria for judging art is that’s it’s also irrelevant criteria. If you want to judge music by how close it stays to 98 beats per minute throughout, that would be objective, but it also would have nothing to do with whether the music has any value to anyone. It’s not that objective standards don’t exist, they just don’t matter.
Best case scenario would be spending more on public education.
But that would cut into corporate profits and the stock market would suffer, resulting in over educated sensible young adults who can't find jobs.
Wait, I must have made a mistake in that equation?
LOL Grandma had Secrets
with you on no best/worst but there is putatively better/higher quality and worse/lower quality.
Which brings us back to Totino’s...and Little Sleazers
...depending on one's criteria of better/higher and worse/lower, of course.
One man's trash being another man's treasure, and all.
For example: when my sister, who lives on the lake just down from the governor's mansion, when they grill out, for the brats all there is available, in respect to mustard, is that high-toned grey djon stuff. I so do wish they'd have plain yellow available, also.
Afraid not, Ron.
People that I love like things I don’t. I’m glad that stuff exists for them.
I remember when I was a kid my dad saying “That’s why they make chocolate milk.”
Quincy Jones likes the Beatles. If he said different, he was talking jive. HE CLAIMS TO LIKE RAP, so...
Comedy is pizza...cut into square pieces, with "No Room for Squares" playing in the background.
If that doesn't make you at least smirk, well, that's ok, too.
Comedy is not Wes Montgomery, at the peak of his popularity, dying of a heart attack on June 15, 1968, while at home in Indianapolis, at the age of 45.
All these comparisons are useful for one person, mostly, or for the industry of being a culture critic, because a lot of people need to be told what they like and why.
jimmy crack corn.
True, and sometimes, I prefer a lower quality Pringles chip over some kind of rare-potato, oven-baked, sea-salted chip. I also quite enjoy a Big Mac, and I do know that there are higher quality burgers available at a higher price.
Higher quality doesn't always make it a favourite. I really don't like shellfish, not matter what the quality. I wouldn't say that a Subway sandwich is better than fresh crab, but I'll take the sub every time over even the most expensive, highest quality crab.
There's always going to be someone, though, that says that Subway sandwiches are terrible, rather than saying he doesn't like Subway sandwiches. Those guys will generally refuse to change the way they speak, so this all gets rather pointless.
There is joy is "slumming it" at times.
And there is also joy in simple "everyman/good-enough-for-the-masses" utility of, say, a Squier guitar, a macrobrew, a hotdog.
And if one can't truly enjoy those common everyday things, possibly one has let oneself become too accustomed to the supposed finer things.
In terms of quality, many would say that Dr. Strangelove is higher quality comedy than Bridesmaids or most Adam Sandler movies. I prefer Annie Hall over Anchorman.
Which movies are funnier? Is Happy Gilmour funnier than When Harry Met Sally?
When you like old funky sci-fi movies because they are awful, you aren't saying they're good movies, you are saying they are good at being terrible. When people say they think some craptacular music is good, they are rarely saying the same thing ... they actually think it's good, so ...
Kitsch can add value at times
And who has the right to say that it's crap, or that they shouldn't like it? "How can you stand that crap?"
I cannot stand Merle Haggard. I also happen to like Boston and Journey. Am I wrong?
