"Wow, Jim, you were pretty drunk at the office party last night!"
"Tell me about it. I think I drank a nog-load of bourbon."
"Did you know you got fired?"

Selling Out to Survive
Only Hipster Douche-Bags (in their $200 "Thrift Store Style" jeans) and Olds get this pissy when hearing songs in commercials. BFD! If your head-thinker can't separate the commercial version of the song and the version of the song that actually meant something to you, then you should be listening to records of squirrels fight. (I say "records" because obviously you'd sniff at anything that "not pure vinyl.")
Sometimes the mixture of the song + commercial leads to some good art: like a couple years ago and that awesome Hummer commercial with "Happy Jack." It was like a mini-Wes Anderson movie! And Nick Drake would probably kill himself if he'd missed that marketing opportunity to pair "Pink Moon" up with Volkswagen! (Yes. I know. It's called "irony." Ask your teen-aged kids.)
In the purest sense, as soon as a musician offers his "art" in exchange for money he's a sell out. And unless you know some musicians who'd prefer to live in a tent made out of bark and eat nothing but squirrels, every musician out there is technically a "sell-out."
So let these people make money the best way they can, and you keep downloading their music for free on the interwebs.

Holy CRAP!! Check THIS out!!!
The shocking thing is Glenn Beck isn't DENYING this!! I am a huge fan and I can't believe this is true, but the more he doesn't deny it, the more more guilty he appears. Just like Glenn Beck accused President Obama regarding accusations of Socialism/Muslimism/Communism/Kenyanism/UFOism/etc.ism and then said Obama MUST be guilty because he won't deny it!
GLENN BECK, don't let us down!! Please answer these accusations against you!! And really beat the Liberals at their own game... just like you refused to accept the Governor of Hawaii's confirmation of President Obama's U.S. birth records, show them that you can play by your own rules and not accept legitimate police records provided by official police sources!!

Isn't this just another EW list with a made-up topic so that the editors can brag about basically *their* favorite shows? I thought a "cult" show was one that doesn't play well across the board, sometimes with critics -- mostly with mainstream viewers, but is appreciated by a small group of die-hard fans. "Off-Beat" (as mentioned in the article header) isn't the same as "cult."
"Buffy?" Really? A cult show? Wasn't that a huge hit for the WB? And "X-Files?" Sure, it's purposefully made to *seem* like a cult show but it practically helped put FOX on the map. The show it was imitating, "Twin Peaks," is a cult show. "Venture Brothers?" A huge hit for Cartoon Network... also the animated "Tick." The live action "Tick...?" Now THAT'S a cult show, as was "Get a Life." "Prisoner:" a cult show. "Dr. Who:" a MASSIVE hit that's been running for, what, 45 (45!!!) years? When is this no longer a cult show? Maybe around year 25... 26? "Veronica Mars" was a GIANT hit for UPN until it started sucking, and low-numbers-due-to-suck + a hot chick does not equal "cult." Isn't "Chuck" STILL ON!? Trust me, NBC does NOT broadcast "cult" shows.
"Battlestar Galactica," the show that launched SyFy channel into the medium/big leagues, a cult show? Now that's just silly.
BUT the ONE omission that makes this entire list null-and-void is the lack of "Arrested Development." That sea-sick inducing, shakey-cam'd, barely tolerable bowl of beloved "preciousness" is a true cult show, no matter how much you might hate it.
Good night, god bless...

Thank you, God of Movies. After its VERY low 5th place finish now we won't have to watch any more of those brain-numbing "Jennifer's Body" trailers. (Unless they come up with a "#1 Crappy Vampire Movie Starring a Piece of Sugarless Cotton Candy Wearing a Belly Shirt!" campaign. Oh, shit. Now I'm nervous.) And can we finally be done with Random Slang Generator / Champion Publicity Whore Diablo Cody? Pleeeeassse!?

Parents who aren't going to let their kids hear President Obama's speech on Education... thank you for being JUST AS RETARDED as the Republicans were hoping you'd be. Please ask your kids (or even the family dog) for some enlightenment -- obviously they are WAY smarter than you can ever hope to be.

It all simply boils down to one irrefutable fact: U.S. Citizen Obama is the duly elected President of the United States.
Any military personnel who refuse to deploy when ordered by their CinC are disobeying orders and should be punished appropriately.
There is more evidence that Obama is a U.S. Citizen than there is that George W. Bush actually won the 2000 election so in reality, EVERYTHING the Bush Administration committed between 1/2001 and 1/2009 can be considered a crime, not just the ACTUAL crimes they committed in our names.
The "No he isn't! / "Yes he is!" fight is as petty and irrelevant as any you'd find on an elementary school monkey-bars.
It's not about birth certificates (because honestly, Birthers, you know you're not going to accept ANYthing as final proof, am I right?) and it's not about the latest wwrglblrgl Sarah Palin (bless her heart!) is drooling. It's about the bait-and-switch.
The politicians (especially the NeoCons) LOVE it when we get into these arguments because it distracts us from the real problems in this country that they're not fixing while they rob us blind.
If you believe that Obama's not legally the President, or that his health plan has secret "death panels," or that his policies are "Socialist," then you are just as stupid as your Congressmen and Senators were hoping you were.
If Senator McCain had won in 2008 can you imagine the shiat-storm of scorn and revilement these same birthers would be flinging on anyone who questioned HIS citizenship? At least Obama was born in the United States! (McCain being born on a US Navy base in Panama isn't enough to make him a citizen, it's his parents. Same as Obama and HIS mother for you Birthers who need to go all the way to an Indonesian birth to make your crazy math work.)
So Birthers, let's just drop this insanity and get back to fixing the country. And if you can't drop it, at least get out of the way so the rest of us can fix the country for you, while you hang out with your mental equals: Bigfoot Hunters, Alien Abductees, and Glenn Beck.
On second thought, I think Bigfoot Hunters probably have more going on upstairs than Glenn Beck.
Rage-filled Right-Wing mouth-frothers may now line up on the left to rebut.

COMPILATION BREAK! While searching for some decent covers of "Hooked on a Feeling," I found a couple of bizarre compilation videos. How a certain song can trigger certain visual necessities in certain people blows my mind. I guess some people can put 2 & 2 together and get something way not 4.

One of my favorite songs when I was a kid was "Hooked on a Feeling." Not the kinda-gay B.J. Thomas version; I mean the TOTALLY gay Blue Swede version. "Hooka-Chucka" indeed. Please to enjoy a month's supply of covers. (I'm a little behind already, so the first post will include August 1-3) And because the only way to go from here is up, let's start with the (yawwwwn) original...

MAYNOTLAST: Sorry, Haters... (Wildcatfan82, I'm looking at YOU over my laptop while I sit here in Starbucks pretending to be a writer) but when I want a stew of contrived, pretentious twee-ness I put on a White Stripes album: Retro-vinyl, of course. Whaaat!? (Now I'm pounding the air above my head with my palms.) Gotta run -- Zach Galifianakis is on Conan!
TANTRUM: Way off the mark, dude. You are unfamiliar with the term "twee."
MAYNOTLAST: Ahh, thank you. But you probably didn't understand -- I was using it to describe the Pixies. Next...?
TANTRUM: Yeah, the Pixies aren't twee. Nirvana isn't twee. Belle and Sebastian is twee. Hence, you sound foolish..
MAYNOTLAST: You're right, Nirvana isn't twee. But the Pixies are. Frank Black calling himself "Black Francis" nails THAT case shut. (Although can you blame him? He'd be run out of every carefully crafted dive bar in Hipster Heaven with a zaftig moniker like "Charles Michael Kittridge Thompson IV.") And don't worry, I can sound foolish on way more important topics than these fauxsters. I'd like to discuss Sonic Youth, but I'm afraid my computer will explode with the bile and hatred spewed by all you "opened-minded" musicologists.
Gracias & goodnight.
(and then Wildcatfan82 told mommy on me and I can't post at Fark:Music for a while)

Hallelujah! Auntie Sarah's found a new scam to foam-up the Retarded Right. Thanks to the spot-light boost on her faux-outrage over Letterman's jokes, I have a sneaking suspicion that most 2012 Presidential Race press conferences, blogs, pundits shows and "town hall meetings" will now be peppered with Nazi-con plants, shooting pre-approved "distasteful" questions at the candidate from Alaska so she can be "outraged" and "concerned" about the dangers confronting "real america."

"The reason women find the word 'cunt' so offensive is because they don't have a comeback for it. If some guy calls her a 'bitch' a woman can just call him an 'asshole.' But if he calls her a 'cunt' she's flummoxed, there's no equal response, and thus the word must be fanatically tagged with faux-offensiveness if women are to retain the higher-ground."
