The Dark Crystal-holy crap this scared me as a kid.

March 1, 2009

I now remember why I’ve been afraid of this movie for over 20 yrs.  I don’t remember the plot other than there are some scary vulture-like creatures that speak an in shrill tones and suck the life out of others.  I like to think it was an early introduction to politicians.

Don’t come on the Street if you ain’t strapped. This makes so much sense after seeing Bert and Ernie’s rap video.

“Hurt” sung by Kermit the Frog

September 11, 2008

A few thing before people start complaining that this is a Johnny Cash song. “Hurt” was written by Trent Reznor, and recorded on Nine Inch Nails Downward Spiral album released in 1994. Johnny Cash covered the song shortly before his death and it appeared on Cash’s American Recordings IV: The Man Comes Around. Cash even said “Hurt” was the best anti-drug song he’d ever heard. Kermit the Frog even did his own version, and after watching the video below, you’ll agree with Cash’s sentiments.
NSFW language (1 word describing excrement) and also gratuitous Muppet drug abuse and 1 particularly frightening scene that shows the depths that Kermit has plunged to and what he’ll subject himself to for a fix.

June 16, 2008

It’s a powerful song, and the trio naturally get carried away with their emotions.
