Weird Names (written 7/23/09)

I can't stand trendy or weird names. It's so stupid, why can't you just name your child right? Celebrities seem to be in a contest to find the weirdest name. Whats that about??? But what I can't stand even more, are names intentionally spelled wrong. That's bull. It's not funny or cute, it makes you look like an idiot who can't spell right. Thanks to all the trend following, tabloid reading moms who want to be "different" we have this. You know, that actually seems like an oxymoron, they contradict each other, how can one be trend following, and want to be different? Exactly. Everyone wants to be different, so to try to be different than everyone else, you do what everyone else is doing to get away from being the same. It's like things that started out different, everyone catches on too, and they all start doing it. In this case, everyone was already doing it before you got the chance to spell your kids name in an idiotic way. Seriously check out some of this I found on a website (it says "Creative baby name spellings, creative? How about stupid?), Abigail can be spelled Abbigail, Abagale, or Abigael. Caleb can be spelled Kaleb, Cayleb, or Caeleb. Zachary can be spelled Zakary, Zakkary, or Zacharie. Michelle could be spelled Mashell, M'shell. Jennifer could be spelled Jennyfer, Jennipher, or Jennafer. Are you kidding me?? What intelligent person would buy this nonsense? How would you like your kid spending their entire lives, telling people how to spell their name??? Seriously. Name your kid right, don't spell like a 7 year old. Another thing I don't like, is when parents give their kids ethnic names, even though their heritage is not at all what they named their kid. For example, giving your kid a Russian sounding name, when you're not even Slavic. Whats up with that?? That's another thing I don't get. And why are there names only old people seem to have? Like Agnes or Merle. Why do we never see those names anymore? Why can't parents just name their kids after Saints or people of the Old Testament, like David or Adam like normal people? That's what most people do, why can't you do that? Bottom line, at least for their sake, and the sake of sounding educated, name your kid a normal name.

Songs(s) and Videos of the week

So I'm backed up by 3 weeks, another 6 video post. it's getting increasingly hard for me to find music on Youtube that meets all my requirements. Some of it has embedding disabled and I can't use it. Sometimes almost enite artists are off limits to me because their record label (like SonyBMG) has all their videos embedding disabled. Not only that but I try to keep this site family friendly and I do go to great lengths to assure that. I personally watch all of the videos I post. This rules out some live performances, like for example, alot of Metallica performances, seemingly most from the early 90s. Because for some reason James Hetfield felt he had to use the F word for no particular reason. I also go to lengths to assure quality. I try to ensure you see high quality performances, which I usually describe, music videos and songs too. Nontheless, I am finding Youtube songs increasingly hard. I do not plan on discontinuing this weekly feature. So I guess I'm going to have to start looking at some other sites, and start searching for songs earlier.

I have the Among The Living Album, I didn't like it much when I first got it, although I've been listning to it lately and now I realize it's pretty good, heres one of the songs on there I've always liked, in fact, it was one of the songs I bought the album for in the first place.

Anthrax - Indians

How could I have forgeotten this song? It's a classic. I don't know what to classify it but it's a good song.

The Charlie Daniels Band - Still in Saigon

Here's another Charlie Daniels Band song, I don't have the internet speed right now to watch videos, so I'll just put this out, and this is still a good song. I may later change this to a live performance if I can find one.

The Charlie Daniels Band - The South's Gonna Do It Again

Since I can't watch videos due to my slow internet, I have to improvise, I'll take whatever I think of.

Weird Al Yankovic used to have a short lived childrens show, it was canceled because of conflict of interest, weird al's humor was more adult oriented, while the station, (I forget which one) considered it an educational childrens show. I read a story about it and was suprised what got pass the censors. Here's some clips.

Imaginary Friend (Weird Al Show)

Heres one of the fake commericals they did.
Pizza Quick Commerical (Weird Al Show)

I heard cats always landed on their feet, idk, here's a news clip of a cat that fell 80 feet from a tree and lived.

Song and video of the day

Here's a live rendition of a really good Megadeth song, the only complaints I have with this is Dave Mustaine sings sort of naisily and high pitched, sounds weird, and I think the guitar ist might have started improvising the solo, I'm not sure, but other than that it's a good performance.

Megadeth-Tornado of Souls (live, 2005)

but don't just take my word for it, even daffy duck likes Megadeth.

Duck Dodgers-In Space No One Can Hear You Rock (Special guest star Dave Mustaine.)

Video(s) and song(s) of the week

I'm sorry i've been so lazy, because I'm almost a month behind, so I got to throw out 3 videos for each catigory.

So since I gave that deliverance album a 10, I wondered, are there any other Christian bands that are actually good? I asked the question online and someone recommended this, it's a progressive power metal band, and the person who answere me said this was by far their heaviest song.

Theocracy - Laying The Demon To Rest

Turns out, the guy who sings for theocracy, is also the guy who made this hilarious spot on parody of Metallicas St.Anger album.

St. Anger Parody-Matt Smith

So Alice in Chains is finally releasing a new album for the first time in 14 years. They have a new singer since their original one died in 2002, and suprisingly, this song isn't bad, it's really heavy,and the new singer works, he doesn't sound like the original one but he works. This songs really long too. It'll be interesting to hear him when he sings more up front. Now I'm excited about this new album.

Alice in Chains - A Looking In View

Heres a video of a HUGE firecracker roll.

Proper use of a firecracker roll!
