The Ballad of TV Violence...what a stupid title. What a great song. It's been years that i've been listening to that song and only until a few years ago did i know it was originally titled Speck, which just explains everything. And the unparalleled Robin Zander is truly "The Man of a Thousand Voices," adding to the finale of that song a palpable sense of horror. Goosebump City, kiddies!

Oh, i forgot!

...And of course, Fripp's contribution on Baby's On Fire. But any idiot would know that.

The REAL greytomorrow?

WHY "the REAL greytomorrow?" Simple. Because some little girl had already taken greytomorrow.blogspot.com. Maybe one of these days i'll inform her of the fact that she's stepping on my trademark...or maybe not. She hasn't even posted to her "Crying Isn't Secret" blog (i'm not making this up!) in over a YEAR, as of this writing.

BTW, Fripp rules. Listen to Bowie's "It's No Game, Pt. I" if you have any doubts. Much to Ro's chagrin, i could leave that song on loop all day.

Ever see "The Man With Two Brains"?

Happy Thanksgiving to all of Italy. Thanksgiving is big with the Italian people.

Joey, I'm dyin' over here! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Six Degrees of Related Videos

So, doing research for a project, I go to YouTube, hoping to find (in this case) the title sequence to the 1966 film The Russians Are Coming! The Russians Are Coming! Although not the title sequence, one user has put together a montage of the film's various moments.

The point here is not about the film but what's going on in the lower right corner of yr browser window: Related Videos. Related? Granted a good percentage have "russian" in the title or description...but I ask you, what algorithm connects The Russians Are Coming! The Russians Are Coming! with Keira Knightly at the Atonement premiere? Or The Village People? Or this video?

I'm not being facetious here. Maybe it's me. I just don't see the logic. But I'd seriously like to understand the chain, the "six degrees" if you will.

Corn flakes everywhere

While watching the morning news (TG1), i discovered that the head of the Italian State Police is Antonio Manganelli.

I found this extremely funny...Ro just shrugged.

Which reminds me of a joke...

...THAT worked well! Ehhh, whatever...

How about a picture? Here's the Joey-lectro FTH so far...

...and another...

...spiffy, no? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! It'll be (to para-steal a MIMF member's signature) the prettiest kindling in Rome. It's got Martin-esque scalloped bracing...on the back! And it's got Gretsch-like trestle bracing for the front...on essentially a flat-top guitar. It's pretty obvious I have no idea what I'm doing. Engineering...what's that?

Meme Of The Day

Okay, here's an idea...Meme Of The Day. Maybe "meme" is a bit pretentious...but it sounds better than "Random Idea That Will Hopefully Catch On Of The Day," doncha think?

Latin Wide...

Let's see if "Mr. Discipline" can keep this up....see ya tomorrow!
