… on something. Seriously. While they didn’t check with me first, this article tells it all. It sort of relates to my infamous Led Zeppelin post by failing to mention Led Zeppelin at all. The actual article can be found on the Vatican’s website in L’Osservatore Romano, the Vatican’s official newspaper. If I’m going to invoke the Vatican, you know I check it first. They have given their blessing to a clutch of albums saying its top 10 ten albums would be perfect for anyone marooned on a desert island. Seriously. The list is noteworthy.
- Revolver by the Beatles
- If I could Only Remember My Name by David Crosby
- The Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd
- Rumours by Fleetwood Mac
- The Nightfly by Donald Fagen
- Thriller by Michael Jackson
- Graceland by Paul Simon
- Achtung Baby by U2
- (What’s the story) Morning Glory? by Oasis
- Supernatural by Carlos Santana
This list is some fine music for the most part, though I’m not sure how Fagen’s album fits in with rest. I can’t imagine the Pope sanctioned this. Pink Floyd’s awesome Dark Side of the Moon is a famous icon of stoner-dom. Supernatural is heavy with overt sexual references. Morning Glory features a hit song about a drug cocktail (Champagne Supernova if you don’t know). And it includes a Michael Jackson album which begs all kinds of jokes that I’ll skip for now. But, I will agree with the Vatican. If stuck on a desert island, you could do much worse. I am pleased the Holy See has given its blessing to these fine albums.
In the ultimate irony of all time — I challenge anyone to beat this — Bill Clinton offered his support to Tiger Woods with his marital problems. I don’t even know where to begin. This is a punchline to some joke that’s too far out for me to even comprehend.
‘Bacon-trepeneurs is a term coined for this article on how bacon makes everything better. Who can argue? Nobody, of course. You can go on and on about how bad bacon is for you and everything that’s wrong with it. Yum. Tasty.
I need a date to the Paul McCartney concert. I have bought two tickets at face value and as of right now, have nobody to go with. Offers accepted from all real fans….
As I said before, I am very happy for Team Canada and which them the very best with the gold medal they clearly deserved. My sole complaint is that whiney bitch Sidney Crosby. He’ll be even more insufferable now. Can you even imagine it? In his new contract he’s likely going to ask for a private bus just to carry his ego from game to game.
I find it hard to be rational with Crosby. He’s a true diver and he whines about everything and while his skill is undeniable, his antics cheapen the game. He whines to the refs, he whines to the media. And he’s soft as hell, though this year he’s actually had a little resemblance to a man instead of a woman. As Kathy says, “Man up princess and hit him with your purse.” He just irritates me ever so much. Hell, Malkin on the same team is a much better overall player. Sid’s been anointed and it’s gone to his head. Shut up, Bitch, and just play hockey. Want to see his diving ways? Go to this YouTube video.
