TENACIOUS D

Thursday, July 24th 2014

34th out of 131 in my CFL picks after week 4, better than I expected!

This is a con for technology, not a pro. “OOH, my phone is missing! What will I ever do?” Calm down and WRITE stuff down and put it on your fridge!

AC/DC news. I find them HIGHLY OVER RATED. I acknowledge what they’ve done for music, but only like a small sampling of songs. Most of their stuff sounds like they’ve already written the song before.

If you’ve got “The Oz Man Cometh” you probably don’t need this album.

Weezer is more miss than hit for me, I’ll check out this when it’s released and probably not buy it on iTunes. http://consequenceofsound.net/2014/07/watch-weezer-debut-new-single-back-to-the-shack-on-jimmy-fallon/

Counting Crows new single, I have 3-5 albums but only have the first 2 on iTunes and my iPod.

Interview with Ian Thornley of Big Wreck. Big Wreck opened for Dream Theater way back when? COOL!!!!!

Tenacious D this is a daunting task. Don’t know how many appropriate songs they have? Dave Grohl is always their studio drummer! Jack Black and Kyle Gass are the main focus. They call it “acoustic metal”. They’re both actors as well. 3 albums including the soundtrack to their movie “The Pick of Destiny” SO NOT A KIDS MOVIE!!!! Dave Grohl also plays the role of the devil when needed. Kyle and Jack met in Scotland at a fringe festival, since they were both in an actors/improve group called “The Actors Gang”. Their first appearance as Tenacious D is a short (0.15 or so) appearance in the background of the movie “Biodome”. The self titled debut album was released in 2001. They ‘re more of a comedic musical act.

If you’ve heard “The Pick of Destiny” soundtrack you’ll know the plot of the movie.
THIS ISN’T EVEN CLEAN!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SKg0VSoDdxI

The 3rd album “Rise of the Fenix” is a definite let down and I don’t find it nearly as entertaining! I don’t think I’ve made it all of the way through it?

Why did this turn into a music blog? Because “music is a BIG @#$%#$& deal”-Dave Grohl
“Complaining won’t solve anything. If you want something done your way, just do it yourself!”
“Don’t try to please everyone, it CAN’T happen”
“Learn something from your mistakes and don’t do them again”
“I feel good about the good things and bad about the bad things”-David Eric Grohl
