Are Reality Shows Setting Unrealistic Standards for Skanks?

February 10, 2009

The Onion News Network assembles panelists to discuss  how shows like “Flavor of Love” are impacting the self-esteem of skanks across the nation.  A few NSFW words.

Prince steals the show during a great cover of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”

January 6, 2009

Watch Prince tear it up at around the 3:30 mark. He might be a bit odd, but that dude is bad on guitar. Other performers include Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne, Marc Mann, Steve Winwood & Dhani Harrison (George’s son). From the 2004 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Very nice cover version of one of the Daily Chum’s favorite Beatles’ songs.

Video Wars: “Freaxx” by Brokencyde

November 23, 2008

Video Wars started as an informal gag between myself and some friends. We would send terrible music videos to one another in an attempt to out-mortify one another. These videos are not for the faint of heart, or for those who have an empty stomach. This week’s entry is “Freaxx” by Brokencyde. This is a perfect storm of terrible-ness and shows the ugly side of the availability of audio and video recording technology. Seriously, this might the most awful thing I’ve ever seen. I know it’ll be painful, but watch the whole thing. It jumps off to uncharted regions of suck around the 1:50 mark.

VH1’s top 100 Hip-Hop songs of all-time.

September 25, 2008

I’ll just issue a blanket NSFW warning for these top 5 videos.

#1-“Fight the Power” by Public Enemy

I love PE’s style, but I can do without their Farrakhan loving. But their lyrics were about 20x more intelligent than most of the rap that is produced today.

#2-“Rapper’s Delight” by The Sugar Hill Gang

How can you not like this song?

#3-“Nuthin but a G Thang”-Dr. Dre

I just got a contact high from listening to this.

#4-“Walk this Way”-Run-DMC with Aerosmith

The scene: a bus on the way home from school, 6th grade. An inquisitive youngster, who would one day write a kick-ass blog on something that would be called the “internet”, asks his friend if he can listen to his Walkman (yes, a cassette player). The youngster put on the earphones and, before pressing play, asked his friend, “Hey, what is this?” “It’s some rap group called Run-DMC.” The youngster was intrigued. Upon hearing that “rap” was also totally frowned upon by his parents and also caused its listeners to have instant access to guns and girls, he was a definite fan. Man, that kid was smart…and good-looking.

#5-“The Message”-Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five

I was too young to remember when this came out, but it’s got a great hook.

It’s Fatboy Slim’s birthday so watch the video for “Praise You”

July 31, 2008

Fun song, but even better is the choreography.  The crowd loves these guys.  After that, watch the best video of all time, Fatboy Slim’s “Weapon of Choice” featuring Christopher Walken.  Spike Jonez made some great music videos.  Remember those?

Praise You
