NaBloPoMo Day Fourteen - Musical Fluff...Again

Day Fourteen.

I know it's been a while since I've introduced you to any addictive musical drivel. Don't worry, The Offspring is STILL making sure I don't miss out on any new music. If the XM radio isn't blasting Ethel, I will assume the electricity to our home is cut off. Especially if I hear wailing and gnashing of teeth. Preceded by a scream of, "MOOOOOOOOOOOOM!" The child's life has a soundtrack, guaranteed.

Occasionally, good sense will NOT prevail in her musical world. This usually results in the constant repetition of ONE DAMN SONG. Over and over ad nauseum. The second she gets in the car, the song is immediately found and blasted. Her phone blasts it. The iPod blasts over speakers while she is in the shower. It can't be ignored. What happens in the process is that I become brainwashed, and the song will not leave me be. I am humming and singing it all the time. Remember those geeky guys from Hellogoodbye? 3OH!3, featured below, is much the same:

I love the line, "Do the Helen Keller and talk with your hips." Helen would have loved it.

An addiction from a few weeks back, Family Force 5...and I liked the song a LOT more, before I saw this video:

It was a rockin' song...until...sigh.
Why do geeky guys make it on the music scene? I just don't see the same market for rockin' geeky girls.

BTW, I think FamForce5 inspired The Offspring's latest look.Have a great weekend...I'll still have posts, just not as intense!

You are right, "Do the Helen Keller and talk with your hips," is the best line. I probably didn't see this video because there were no new/unannounced cell phones or other cutting edge technology in them, whereas Britney and X-tina have wisely captured the tech/gadget crowd's attention with these tactics in their most recent videos.

Well at least they have words. My daughter has been on a run of wordless techno songs, each indistinguishable from the other. She says, "Oh Mom, you have to hear this one." Then she plays a series of noises that could be anything from whales talking in a subway to communication from outer space. I tell her, oh, that would be nice to dance to, but she never believes me. Note to self, do not play poker with the girl.

Just the other day I saw a study about music being beneficial to the heart. Of course, it has to be music that you enjoyed.

mark - also, don't forget that Britney looks a lot better naked than these guys. Just sayin'.

spellbound - that is HYSERICAL! And of course, I went thru my own techno phase...luckily, I can only handle it every so often now, so I don't bore the passengers in my car.

pamela - yeah, I can see that - b/c some of the screaming stuff? BAD for my heart...and VERY stressful!
