Re: “Jingle Bell Shame

"'We're Not Gonna Take It' was always 'O Come All Ye Faithful.'" My God, I can't believe I never realized that...

Anyway, as long as hard rock is the topic, I should mention that Billy Idol offers an interesting alternative to the John Denver number.

Re: “Noise Annoys

Tucson is lucky to have both Lando Chill and isaiah Toothtaker. It's unrealistic to expect world-class talent from such a small town. Most kids leave for New York or LA as soon as they can. Those artists who stick around are serving audiences that appreciate their effort, regardless of having hits or being known nationally.

PS- Why take a swing at isaiah's weight struggle? That's just mean. Since day one, hip hop has embraced all body types. Ever hear of Biggie Smalls? Get real!

Re: “Jingle Bell Shame

Gee Serene, your future as an entertainment critic are boundless. With talent like yours, by this time next summer you might be critiquing patriotic 4th of July parade marches in places like Albuquerque or even Omaha. John Phillip Sousa, Watch out!

Re: “Jingle Bell Shame

Fun article!

I actually own that Star Wars record and somehow I've managed not to destroy that vinyl turd, despite how gawd-awful it is. In fact, I would rate my copy with a grade of mint minus. I only include the minus because it was played at least once, although you would never be able to tell if you were to examine it.

I really can't figure out what could have been a better way to release the plague on the world we now know as Bon Jovi; he is the modern day Darth Vader when it comes to ruining, yet somehow handsomely profiting from, the musical galaxy as we earthlings know it. As a youngster, Jon Bon Jovi was known as John Francis Bongiovi, Jr. and Lord Darth Vader was known as Anakin Skywalker.

Coincidence? I think not!

Re: “Noise Annoys

What Actual Music Fan said about Lando Chill.

That guy has zero chance of making it in the music business. Listened to the album from the link in the article. His album has it all: bedroom production, flat voice, cringey lyrics.

Lando Chill is almost as bad as that pudgy Tooth Taker guy.

Re: “Noise Annoys

Lando Chill? Seriously?

Lando Calrissian rocked way more than this phony ever could.

Hell, Sammy Hagar rocks more than either one of them.

There's more than one way to rock, but Lando Chill will never figure that out.

Re: “Court and Spark

Excellent article! Joyce is a highly talented and genuine singer/songwriter with a wonderful expressive voice. I'd recommend that anyone who has not seen her come to a show! If you appreciate music with a heart you won't be disappointed.

Re: “Noise Annoys

Interesting. I don't believe Sammy Hagar has ever received this much attention in a TW comments section. In fact, the only one that came close would have been this one:…

I read something even more interesting on The Hard Times site. Check it out:…

Why is Sammy Hagar such a bad golfer? Well, the true answer is: Because he can't drive 55. I'm not sure how the answer became "A baby in a microwave!". I guess that's the result of the joke being passed on for over 30 years and people altering it to the point that it's unrecognizable from the original. Kind of like this:…

Re: “Noise Annoys

If you couldn't read the sarcasm and understand the bigger picture of that Sammy Hagar article than that's actually the problem.

Re: “Court and Spark

A beautiful voice and a beautiful soul! The medical ailments would be enough to keep any one down. But not Joyce! She continues on. And her music has grown so much over the years. Good for her!!

Re: “Court and Spark

I went to high school with Joyce. And we shared a love of music, of course. Once I heard her sing, that sound never left my heart! So imbued with genuine interest in the world and others.

Re: “Noise Annoys

I never said Sammy was my hero, that honor goes to Mr. Alice Cooper. I just said he was deserving of respect. Until your post, I've never heard anything negative about him. Your story reeks of BS, but if it isn't, maybe you got too drunk, did something stupid during a blackout phase and got what you deserved. I can't say anything for sure though because I wasn't there. My bet is that you weren't either.
