Going on the concept that there's someone out there for everyone I can't help but wonder who that other would be. Chances are I'm far better off never knowing.
There's a lot of youtubers out there that have a lot of fun and even make a decent living making videos and vblogs but there also are a lot of youtubers out there who do it simply for the attention. Case in point: just try to tell me this guy isn't some kind of sick exhibitionist.
Oh the 1980's my how they sucked. Cheesy style, terrible music, and annoying people; it was just like the 2000's. I find this POS as the perfect illustration for the 80's; It has excess, ego, smug self-importance, it's two-dimensional and there's not a shred of soul or originality.
Obviously this is a complete hack of Randy Newman's I Love L.A. Pretty much everything was stolen, including snippets of Newman's video itself. But really, what else could we expect from the Kardashian family?
Through the dusty passages that is my brain I keep stumbling over the memory from when I was living in Austria, hearing a German version of Achy Breaky Heart. We falsely hoped cheesy, mullet-driven honky-tonk was left behind us in Oklahoma until Mein Gebrochenes Herz spewed from the radio once again clogging our minds in a completely different way.
If this is worse than the English version, I'll leave that up to you.
Jan Terri first made her appearance on this website in May of last year, posted by DJ b. We didn't realize what exactly we had at the time but I recognized her in this video, did a little digging and found, yes, the woman in this video is the very same woman who did "Losing You". I was rather shocked by this. I fully believed that asinine video was a one-time thing some random person did.
She looks a bit younger and - for lack of a better word - thinner than in Losing You but you can tell by the almost purposely sloppy camera work and sound quality along with her terrible acting that it's her. Seriously, it's like someone handed her a bass guitar and told her, "hold your fist with your thumb out like this and no one will be able to tell this is the first time you picked up a musical instrument."
She also has two albums and several singles. I expect to be sharing a bit more gold from Jan throughout the month. I also will do all that I can to get a hold of physical copies of her albums. If someone can hook me up, send me a tweet!
I was waiting patiently and finally she delivered! Oh, the beauty of the lack-luster that makes the likes of Lady Gaga and Avril Lavigne seem ripe full of quality. Sure, consider me a "hater" if you wish but I really do have a great appreciation for this and her earlier videos. I greatly, with all honesty, appreciate the level of pride she holds for a work that appears so half-assed. The world she lives in, the movie she placed herself as the star is a level of bliss very few of us can ever experience.
The music (generic house beat) is credited to some outfit titled "Deep Impact". I can't find any definitive information on who or what Deep Impact is and she didn't supply a link. I'm suspecting it's either something orchestrated by a local DJ, audio engineer or a friend who wanted his work to be referred too by a cool sounding name. Whatever "Deep Impact" happens to be, I would like to find more information on them.
I was disappointed she didn't create her own music and rather only the lyrics. Guess it's easier to sing to something that doesn't cut mid-measure and change beat out of phase, without any warning. I would have just appreciated this more if she did.
Yet another of many, many examples that the best thing about the Internet is how anyone can freely express themselves in any way they wish and the worst thing about the Internet is how anyone can freely express themselves in any way they wish.
I'm actually old enough to remember a time where men wearing women's underwear stayed behind closed doors where no one would have the misfortune of seeing them. I accredit my livelihood to the Internet yet I still greatly miss those days.
Let's for a moment get beyond the visual attack of this disaster for its very interesting audio accompaniment. At last count Tonetta has 211 videos on his YouTube account which are, more or less, identical; somewhat simplistic, single riff songs with backup acoustic rhythm beats and a linear chorus-verse-chorus Tom Waits lyrical style but much creepier. I only listened to a small hand full of them - they can be pretty soul-sucking - but I still managed to picked up on a theme: it's inherently sexual, mildly violent and/or nonsensical. After all, what else would you expect from a middle-aged man wearing a peek-a-boo bustier?
Yankin' - Lady
I gather this song is about sex but what exactly is being said is touch and go. It sounds like an endless string of non sequiturs to me. Maybe to administrate a website like this I should be fluent in Ebonics.
As a lily white guy, when I hear pussy be yankin' the first thing that comes to mind is, well, this is so like My Neck My Back (Lick it) but also she should see a doctor about that; like a really bad cramp or something has become prolapsed (a nice little mental image for you to enjoy with your morning coffee!).
Being a grown adult and thinking of the sexual physics for a minute I think I understand. If I'm right, it is something quite nice that trashy women would feel is a virtue worth advertising. Nonetheless, my brain is stuck on the whole needing to see the doctor thing.
Oh, and I thought "Got it at Ross" was bad. You would think someone who goes by the name Mr. Ghetto would have a little more class than this. Guess not... Not to say I'm surprised something like this was created. Wal-Mart looks very much like this after 10 p.m. in our little city; just about 75 lbs heaver. And there were plenty of guys who tried to pick up my wife while she attempted to shop.
Yeah, seems all on par..
I never heard of this group but they strike me as the Mormon Jackson Five. If you don't simply love everything about this there's something wrong with you. Agreed, the lyrics are simplistic but come on! A young child with long blond hair very soulfully singing, "I ain't gonna pee-pee my pants tonight." while his extended family covers backup vocals. What's there not to love?
