[Review] Macy Gray on David Letterman, May 9th 2012

Terrible. Your new CD is a cover CD. Great Job you earned 0 points out of a possible 10.

“Macy Gray’s big bad comeback, and her rendition of Radio Head’s ‘Creep’ was the saddest moment in this new decade for me. I hope this does not set the stage for the rest of the decade” -G

[The opposite of LARP] Driver’s Education Reform

In Utah, they don’t put kids in little Geo Storms with extra brakes and silly signs calling them out as student drivers. This approach leads to over-cautious, under-aware boneheads on the road. No, in Utah, to get your license, you have to participate in a demolition derby until your car explodes or at least catches on fire. Any dolt can see, this form of education is far superior, as Utah drivers are now prepared for all eventualities. Furthermore, barring any permanent neck injuries, their head will be on a swivel when it comes time to make a lane change.

[solo project] Thom Yorke to ditch Radiohead

Thom Yorke, a talented but little-known backup singer for the band Radiohead, has decided to break with the band over apparent “artistic differences”. The band Radiohead made a big splash at the Grammy’s last year when they showed up to replace Britney Spears, even pulling off some of her own dance moves in unison, leading many critics to say that they had become little more than a boy band and generating a public outcry. Apparently tempers flared after the bad PR, and Thom has been working ever since on his so-called “nuevo-huevo” rock project.

“I originally started this project as a medium to explore a fusion of R&B, Mariachi and Acid Jazz, but after SB 1070 hit I decided I could stay silent about the project no longer and want to begin touring as soon as this Fall. If I reach even one person with the beauty of this music, it will have been worth losing my finger in that cymbal accident.” – TY

Yorke’s unnamed project is being influenced by hip-hop heavyweight B-Real, who is expected to produce a live album from the tour. Other hip-hop/r&b notables that will be appearing on tour with Yorke will be Darren Robinson a.k.a. “Buff Love” of the Fat Boys and R. Kelly. The first single, Blind as a Guvnah, is now available for free download on http://www.waste.uk.com/
