It took that fucking genius that is Tony Bourdain to point out the obvious about self described "Food-Dude" and TGIFridays scorched puppet Guy Fieri.

Bourdain: Guy Fieri... did you ever see the Simpsons episode where it's decided that Itchy and Scratchy need a sidekick? So a committee gets together and they invent one called Poochie.... Guy Fieri kind of looks like he's been designed by committee.

This is unrelated, but...this is pretty beautiful.

Also, Lou Reed is playing Knoxville but not Chicago?

Richard said...

No big loss. Ever since releasing the Worst Album Ever Made (tr), Reed's live performances have degenerated to pitchfork like levels of "uhhh whatever"

Deanna said...

Well, Melt Banana is that's totally worth the price of admission.

Richard said...

dont you hate when people refer to records as being worth the price of admission?

a record isnt a fucking building! do people not know that?

Anyway, i think its cool that Reed is playing the Ryman. I wonder how Melt Banana will go down there?

Deanna said...

Haha, Melt Banana at the Ryman...I totally forgot that they're playing there as well.

I could see them going over far better at the Ryman than at the Tennessee. When they played the Pilot Light (this tiny, shittyass venue in the Old City neighborhood of Knoxville), a bunch of skinheads showed up and tried to beat Michael up.

He's going to that show, by the way. I kind of ordered him to, which would have been effective except he'd already bought tickets. Seriously, if that show weren't on a Wednesday night I'd fly down for it, even if Reed did end up blowing.
