Eh? God Only Knows is the best Beach Boys song ever. I agree that most of Pet Sounds is forgettable, though.

I started college in 1991 and went through the whole alternative music thing. But the only Radiohead song I've ever had use for was "Creep" (which I understand they grew to hate for how commercial it got).

I don't even know how that is possible for something that has been in constant syndication for over 50 years. I am not from North Carolina and I think I have seen every episode multiple times at this point. It is a really good show with great depth that still holds up. There are many excellent episodes but I am partial to the (surprisingly few) that feature Ernest T. Bass.

I don't knowmuch about whiskeys, but I grabbed a bottle of Evan Williams because it was on sale, and found it delightful. I just opened my second bottle.

O.K., about that...

I think we all KNOW that that is The Best Rock Song Ever, and it was, in my younger days, absolutely obligatory, especially at parties, to crank it up to about 25 and Townshend like mad, flailing at the air guitar and breaking things. We know this. It is inarguable.

However, I'm afraid that leads me to my (gulp) confession...



















..oh, God, I'm going to say it...


















...The second best rock song ever...is...



















"Rebel Yell," Billy Idol. Same procedure.

I am going to argue with you about that only because Billy Idol rocks so hard it hurts. "White Wedding" may be at least tied.

I like ABBA, a lot. Plus a ton of disco in general. I enjoy seeing how it melded with early electronica, Latin-American dance, prog rock, early rap...through italo-disco, new wave and Chicago House, through 90s trance, etc. I don't really comprehend the art of making that kind of music (and I've tried a bit with basic synths and drum machines--I'm just not digital enough I guess ) but I have a huge admiration for those who can perfect it...both as its own art form or for mixing pop songs (even though I think most of the new stuff stinks in general).

I can't partake anymore (God, I opened way too many bottles, over way too long a time, way too often), but lemme say - once you go Black, you never go back.

P.S.: The Bottled-in-Bond White Label is great too, but the Black is more well-aged and rounded overall, IMHO. And don't let anybody tell you that the 1783 is noticeably better; I just found it more expensive, but YMMV.

For context, I'm 49-years-and-11-months-old.

-I saw The Wizard of Oz for the first time just four years ago. I hated it. Same with It's a Wonderful Life.
-I didn't have dinner in a sitdown restaurant until my twelfth birthday. I didn't go to a McDonald's until I was seven. Probably related:
-I love most middle-brow chain restaurants (Friday's, Red Lobster, Crapplebees, Olive Garden).
-I prefer bands like The Doobie Brothers to The Beatles, Lou Reed, or Bob Dylan.
-Almost 100% of the time I'd rather stay home and watch TV/stream a movie rather than attending a lecture, seeing a film in the theatre, etc.. I hate 96.5% of the content of my colleagues' poetry readings, especially if they begin at 8p.m.

I'm a Philistine.

You are not alone.

My true confession... I am reluctant to admit this....well...I read Barbara Cartland novels. Oh, the shame. I've often thought I could write one that nobody could tell was not one of hers, since I read a LOT of them. I guess with this admission I can NEVER look down on the literary tastes of someone else.

The Atari 5200 is the best gaming console ever.



Methyl replies...

I was playing Pengo and Berzerk on my two port last night. Great console tarnished by bad controllers, but if you bought third party controllers, the system and games really shine.

Oh, that's right, this is a confessions thread.

Boyhood, it took twelve years to make. So what. It was boring. BORING. After two hours, I picked up the cover sleeve and realized I had 45 more minutes to go. Screw that. I couldn't take it any longer.

I quit watching sitcoms back in the 80s. They were so predictible I couldn't stand it. I have friends who try to get me interested, but I watch five minutes, give them the plot and then they get mad at me.

I still gorge on Fritos sometimes. And jello salads.

I loathe 'Friends' and I tried to watch it. I TRIED. I gave it a week, and my attention wandered off as I wondered why it was so unfunny and what the BFD was. Couldn't do it. I loathe each and every one of them, and every time I see Jennifer Anniston's stupid smug face even unto this day I want to punch it.

I admit it. I was actually curious to know if that was REALLY Uma Thurman in the MOTO-Z commercial.


I was even going to run a poll:
  • Yes, that's Uma Thurman in the new Moto-Z commercial.
  • No, that cannot possibly be Uma Thurman in the new Moto-Z commercial.
  • Master Pai, I Cannot Tell if that is Uma Thurman in the new Moto-Z commercial! They use the Hitori-Hanzo Film Editor and my Crane-Style Remote Pause Is Just No-Match...!"

The answer, however, has been provided for free... by Yakuza-Tube.

I agree that Friends wasn't a very good show. The biggest problem, as you noted was Jennifer Anniston (as Rachel) and David Schwimmer (as Ross). I have no idea how either of them became big-name celebrities. Both of them are actively annoying and terrible people both on-screen and off. The rest of the cast is fine but you can't drop two turds in punch-bowl and still claim that everything is going Schwimmingly (obligatory dad joke).

My favorite thing about the band Nirvana is that they turned the clothes I'd worn all my life into a nationwide fashion trend.

(I grew up in Western Washington; Cobain grew up in Aberdeen, WA, a logging town, and my grandfather was a logger.)

I had a time about 1980 when I was twelve and wore thick flannel shirts and worn out jeans. I still don't know what was my role model back then, I didn't know about Neil Young at the time, but I looked the part. When grunge broke ten years later, about the same time I got into Neil Young, everything suddenly made sense .

Don't feel bad. I enjoy all sorts of "complex" music, in all sorts of genres, and I love good jazz, but ...

Miles' stuff always just sounded like a bunch of random noodling.

I'll argue that the Replacements were doing grunge before Nirvana, but yeah, comfy flannel is a good thing.

Of course they did, like hundreds of other bands in the eighties. Heck, you couldn't get more "grunge" than Neil Young and Crazy Horse did with Rust Never Sleeps, and that was 1978. The big achievement of Nirvana was to bring all that to the forefront, to the mainstream indeed, and with that a load of other "indy" or "alternative" music which was partly very different from that which Nirvana and cohorts did. Many of Nirvana's forebearers only got their deserved recognition after they had broken the market. I remember a headline of Germany's then leading music magazine "Musikexpress" which read "1992: The year that Punk broke". I didn't understand it then, I thought "well, 1977 was the fucking year that Punk broke!", but later I saw that they had been right.

A lot of The Beatles catalog is utter tripe. Particular some of their 'psychadelic' stuff from Sgt Pepper onwards. If any up-and-coming band had produced 'For The Benefit Of Mr Kite', 'Bungalow Bill' and basically any part of Yellow Submarine' and 'Magical Mystery Tour' they would have been laughed out of the record label office.

Good Beatle songs - very good.
Bad Beatle songs - very bad, man, bad. I mean, real rubbish.

Here are mine:

- I don't like Grease. I don't know if it's because of the songs, the casting (I don't care if most of the actors were the original Broadway cast, they were too freaking old to play high school students), or the way they had Sandy turn all slutty to get Danny's attention. Probably all of the above.

- I used to love those stand-up comedy shows they used to have on network TV in the 80s. Actually, I liked a lot of 80s TV shows that were (and still are) considered dreadful: pro wrestling, I Married Dora, Sledge Hammer!, and, yes, What a Country! I'm not sure what I was thinking as a teenager.

- I was also a major fan of Northern Exposure in the 90s. Even though it may have gone downhill for many viewers earlier on, for me it was when Joel left and that pretentious couple moved in.

- I've never watched Breaking Bad or Game of Thrones. I don't like getting fond of characters only to watch them get killed off.

-I like certain songs and dislike others regardless of genre. For example, I'm not a fan of most country songs, but I adore "Jolene" (especially Dolly Parton's original) and "Highwayman" by the Highwaymen. I also like some rap and even one or two dubstep songs, even though most dubstep sounds to me like a garbage truck and a washing machine having violent sex.

- My current favorite anime is "Yuri on Ice" (finally slinks away in embarrassment)

I've said it on here before, and it's still true: Goofy Greats made me the man I am today. My ideas of what music should be was shaped by it.




I'll watch Starship Troopers over and over again. My wife has learned to commandeer the remote when she notices it's going to be on TV. The same is true with any of The Fast and the Furious movies. I can't help myself, they're so silly.

"Punchdrunk Love' was a shit movie, and is only remarkable because Adam Sandler refrained from doing silly voices and making puerile jokes for 2 hours.

I actually like the movie.

Believe it or not, I can relate to the character on some level. I don't explode like he does, but there have been times where... the pent up emotions I feel take over and I've 'snapped'. His awkwardness around women is just like me.

The time it turns around for him, he punches the map on his office wall and starts crying. After weeping for a brief minute, he picks himself up, accept the reality of his situation, and totally goes outside of his comfort zone to chace the girl to Hawaii, and eventually stand up to the people who are after him.

Robert Ebert said; "Sandler can hit some notes that other actors can't." in reviewing this movie. I think he's right, believe it or not. I believe I read that the role was basically created for Sandler.

That's my defense for it.

Also I love the music, the cinematography great, It's short...

As a teen of the 80s:

- I've never watched The Goonies, and have no interest in doing so. It looks like crap.
- I didn't like any of the 'brat pack' movies: Pretty in Pink, 16 Candles, Breakfast Club, etc.
- I absolutely hated Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

I also didn't like the 90s 'slacker college grad' movies that were supposedly about my age group, like Singles or Reality Bites, but that's less "confession" and more "join the club".
