Two weeks of Beatles songs, instruments allowed, and nobody shreds While My Guitar Gently Weeps? Pathetic!

Jason

Here's how it's done: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D7sT1HRV2qU

Jason: They missed out on doing a lot of classics, but if you ask me, no one should do the Beatles other than the Beatles, unless Kayne wants to do a rap version.

I would have paid good money to see one of them come out, get on the mic and just start saying "number nine, number 9" over and over again. How long of that would Simon be able to stomach? I would have also loved hearing any of them attempt Happiness is a Warm Gun or Yer Blues or Norwegian Wood. Best hiphop use of the Beatles was The Grey Album, which was Jay Z's Black album remixed with samples from the Beatles White Album. 99 Problems over Helter Skelter is just sick!

Also, did you see that YouTube vid? Prince just tears up that solo like nothing ever seen!

Maniac

I will have to check out the You Tube at home since the drones in Corporate Amerika block me from accessing the web site at work. Singing No 9 would have been such a tribute to the Beatles, not to mention Eliot Spitzer.

Nice write up for such an angry VFTW visitor. I'd have thought you'd get along with that crowd somewhat better with your style of writing.
Cheers

I guess those losers can't take the competition. Down with VFTW! May they rot in Hell!!!

Comparing our National politics to American Idol curiously fits. Take for an example that smaltz-fest of a segment shown promoting Idols Give Back. That whole film clip smacked of such staged false sense of Utopia, rather like some of today's current candidates' rhetoric riding the campaign trail.

That whole, "I'm a 'godfather'!" moment with Elliot and the newborn baby, intended to be touching, hit me wrong. Perhaps Elliot was truly feeling the moment, but does or did he understand what he was saying or contributing to in this case?

It was such a badly scripted moment meant to sucker the viewers in, I felt my IQ drop 5 points watching it.

Maniac

Sunny,

Thanks for the shout out. And indeed Idol is a reflection of the current state of politics where everyone is out there trying to prove how beneficient they are, even though we know the minute they are elected they will be screwing us once again. As for Elliott, that seemed odd and inappropriate. What was he crying for? Is he really such egoist? Perhaps as he gets older and end up losing his music career, he will run for office like the Terminator and use this tape to show us how compassionate he is. Nauseating!!
