Lets start with creepy. The Nextel commercials with the guys dancing in their office. How gay can you get? No man in their right mind would be caught dead doing that. If you are offended by that comment then too bad. I am not politically correct. I have no clue if any gay people read the site either. If they do, please don't take it personally. In fact, give me a better phrase to use. The commercial just weirds me out.
On to pompous, rub-your-face-in-all-the-money-I-have commercial. Samsung flat screen TVs featuring Dan Marino. Let's watch Dan parade around his house and show you all the expensive TVs he can hang up because money is not an issue to him. Hey people, I am rich, you aren't. I can have a TV in my closet. By the staircase. Over the toilet. Over the bidet. On the ceiling of the bedroom surrounded by mirrors. On my garbage can. Each dog has their own TV hanging from their balls as well so they can watch TV as they lick themselves. Then, to show how much better he is, he tells us of his "exclusive" club for QBs only. Ok, now maybe Dan Marino doesn't live like this and some of you are saying it is just a commercial. But think of how it can come off. Some dipshit at Samsung thought this was cute. If this is a screaming reason for Miller to bring back the athletes and the Tastes Great, Less Filling slogan once again, I do not what is.
Finally, the just plain stupid. Let's give the award to Taco Bell. I'm full of your cheap food. For my $5, I got me 37 tacos that contained maybe a quarter pound of meat, 50 heads of lettuce, and 1/2 cup of cheese and a tomato. Oh, and a chili cheese burrito. Now I can say goofily (hey, new word!) when I am the principal to my kids, "I'm full" and rub my stomach. I think the actor may have just killed his career with that one. But he probably gets a discount at the Bell now.
Also, Harry Belafonte can kiss my ass. No, this is not a political rant. I just thought his comment about how "not hundreds, not thousands, but millions of Americans support Hugo Chavez" was so idiotically funny. Can you stretch the truth a bit more? I bet not even half of a million people can tell you who Hugo Chavez is.
I have a new list to put up, but not right now. One because I haven't actually listed it yet, and two, I should really do some work now. But I will leave you with this thought and my response to the Hog Man:
From the Oh so wrong thought of the day file- Saw a car yesterday with a bumper sticker that read "I love my Labrador". My initial reaction was I guess that is why you have two big tubs of peanut butter in your car.
Yeah, I am that sick. Hog out!
Thanks for your response. First let me say I like you attitude.
Second, it should be know that I am not "predisposed to thinking that we're going
to suck". If I did, I would just change the station and not listen. I never did
say I would stop listening.
The problem is that you had a chance to be
unique to Milwaukee rock radio. Some WLUM has done it. No one is playing only
alternative rock like they are. The Hog had a chance to carve their niche. It
sounded like they would. But as I mentioned, you soften up and started playing
the buzzkill music the Brew plays. You also started to raid Classic Hits 96
KLH's playlist as well. While the classic rock is good, there is a difference
between a Led Zeppelin and the Eagles. One has balls, the other flies. Why did
you even start playing the same stuff you can hear on those other stations?
You wanted songs? How some hard stuff. I am not talking more Metallica
either. How about Anthrax, Indians. Or Pantera, Cowboys from Hell. Old Megadeth
like Wake up Dead would be nice. Exodus singing the Toxic Waltz. Slayer, Angel
of Death. Is there a copy of any Helloween cd in the building? Mix some thrash
into what you are playing. There is an audience in Milwaukee for this. Thrash
Thursday may go over big (copyright that one to me).
Also, rarely playing a band like Iron Maiden, Def Leppard or Night Ranger does not count as playing them. Once every other day does not constitute playing their music. You can play just about any of the "hair bands" and it would be good. Even the
lesser know ones like Y&T (Summertime Girls), Junkyard (Hollywood), or
Dangerous Toys (Ten Boots Stompin)
There also seems to be an absence of new music. We hear enough Nickelback. What happened to Papa Roach, Saliva, Sevendust, or Disturbed? There are more new bands than Audioslave.
My main beef was and still is that you are playing music we can hear on other
stations in Milwaukee. Be unique and play something that is different. And
please get rid of the commercials of people calling in. Stupid comments from
people who just want to hear themselves on the radio is embarrassing.
Have a great day and rock on!
