best band ever

nothing like a subject filled with hyperbole to get the juices flowing. here's a semi-original thought i just had: the band guster is the only band that has CONSISTENTLY and tremendously improved with age. if that was the criteria for a good band, guster might be the best band in the world ... ever.

i'm sure many will say i'm wrong (and considering all the bands in all of time, 99.9% chance that i actually am wrong), but if that's the case, that means there are other bands out there who improved by leaps and bounds with each new album they pushed out. and IF THAT'S the case, then i want to listen to these bands. so please tell me about them.

i'm in the middle of the nov. 16th episode of lost and i need to say the following. i don't care if dr. michael aloiscious burton is an "other" or not. raise your hand if you're excited that mike is back!

holy shit! -- that dude just killed mike! lost has reached new levels of torment. jj abrams is on my permanent poo list.

seriously, don't talk to me.

the local news

let me paraphrase a promo for the local phoenix news that aired during tonight's family guy ... "tornados, bombings, tidal waves ... some say these are the signs of the end of days. [cut to some guy in the desert with a kick-ass smokey mustache, likely a cowboy] 'people should be scared'. fox news tonight at 10!"

give it a moment.

ok, let's assume for a moment that the apocalypse is coming. let's also assume that fox 10 news in phx is the one and only news source that has learned the how's and the why's of this upcoming apocalypse. let's make yet another assumption that the mustache cowboy is the harbinger of the downfall of all mankind.

with all that in place, what the hell is fox 10 going to be able to report in their half hour segment that is going to help us? it's the f'ing apocalypse, people! we're all done. put the end-all-be-all fork in us. it's not like boarding up your windows or getting a spam blocker is going to save you from the wraith of the 4 horsemen.

"signs of the apocalypse and your 5-day forecast tonight at 10!"
