Nostalgic Idiocracy

Yesterday, NPR had a severe case of nauseating nostalgic retrospective, "looking back at the year 2010".  Everything from "who should be remembered who died this year" to "the most influential politician" (THAT roused some real nut cases to call in and voice whatever was inside their numb-teabag-skulls) to "Rhianna had 4 #1 hits, more than any one else".  As I drove to Ace Hardware (they're so nice, and much more helpful than Lowes or Home Depot), Target, and the gas station running errands, I could NOT take the Idiocractic Focus pouring from KJZZ, and turned my dial.

On X 103.9 they introduced the Weezer song "Pork and Beans", that Rivers Cuomo wrote after a meeting with his record label's executives where they told him he needs to write more approachable, more pop-appealing songs, 'you know, like Justin Timberlake'.  I did not know the back-story behind this song, but now that I do, I like it even more - which is a good thing because Dr Desert Flower seems to play Weezer nearly incessantly on her Ipod in the car and on the stereo here, chez nous.  =)

  1. I hate the end of year recaps. We just lived the year, what's the point?
