So this guy used to have a blog ... sometimes it was funny ... sometimes it wasn't. Well ... actually, most of the time it wasn't funny. BUT it was something to read ... sorta like the Reader's Digest you find at your grandmother's house next to her Gold Bond medicated lotion or next to the four-year old Golf magazines you come across at your doctor's office. It was something to read.
Then this jackoff just falls off the face of the earth. Completely gone. Gone like the Anti-Christ's approval rating. Gone like your common sense when the promise of getting laid is waived in your face. Yep ... gone like that. Now, this lazy sack of shit has decided to start writing again ... can you believe it?
I know the question will inevitably come up. Cincy, where have you been? I've been here. Just sorta uninspired and just worn out. You would think a government job would give me plenty of time off .... you would think. My day is starting at 6 A.M. and with traffic, rolling my tubby ass into the gym after work, and getting home at 9 P.M., I'm a bit exhausted. I'm currently involved in an unholy union with an ancient copier with whom I've spent more time this week than with any family I've got nearby. I'll move within the perimeter of the ATL sometime soon, but 'til then, I'll try to update regularly starting ..... now. You can thank Deeesguy for the title of this entry.
I know you saying to yourself: Cincy, what is your take on world events? Israel? The War in Iraq? The war against our civil rights? The elections? All valid topics. But let's face it. There is only one topic that should have the world holding it's collective breath. There is only one topic that has world leaders tossing & turning at night. There is only one topic that has economists pouring over data late into the night.
The topic: So who is better, Angels & Airwaves or +44?
Let's start with Angels. They released their first album and the first song definitely had me psyched. Kudos for throwing the first punch. "The Adventure" was a catchy little ditty. Tom DeLonge has taken this new band a little too seriously though. He has made AVA sound like it's the next coming of Nirvana; a band that will literally rewrite music history. Don't get me wrong .. the CD is decent. It's more like Simple Plan or Good Charlotte decent, not like Alkaline Trio or Rancid or Jimmy Eat World decent. I can't tell if the AVA is supposed to have a Christian bent or not .... but hey, whatever floats Tom's boat is what I say. I say that the band needs to get a few dick and fart jokes, but that's just my opinion.
+44 is officially the "cock tease" of the music world right now. Initially, their site had a tune to listen to that was subtle and understated. Quite good. But that's really been it. I've gotten more satisfaction from filling the toilet bowl at work than I've recently gotten from +44. I only hope +44 brings it; I hope they don't build up their project so much so that it is impossible to live up to my lofty expectations (after all, it's my opinion that counts .... at least on this blog). So until +44 decides to give it up like a drunken teenage girl at her first frat party, I'll have to wait .... and I AM NOT PATIENT!!!!
