Hey, remember when I mistook John McCain for John McClane, linking to livefreeordiehard.com as his campaign page? Well now, COINCIDENTALLY, Twentieth Century Fox Films has done the same thing, even using "Yippie Kay Yay America" as a slogan like I did, linking right from livefreeordiehard.com with a bumper sticker graphic very similar to the one I made. And how were people getting to livefreeordiehard.com to see the advertisement? That's right, those thousands of people were getting there because I had the common decency to link them there.
Granted, I never followed through by making a full-on campaign page because it was too much work for a stupid joke, but it gave Fox the opportunity to show that there is NOTHING TOO STUPID, provided someone comes up with it for them first. On the plus side, their site looks JUST LIKE the one I was going to make, so that's all good. I particularly like the quote about John putting himself in his opponent's shoes. I'd link to it, except that unlike my version of the site, theirs is entirely flash and impossible to use.
Anyway, to the people at 20th Century Fox I only have one thing to say: "You're welcome."
i've been a fairly regular listener of radioparadise for several years. i really like hearing all sorts of songs ive eithr never heard before, or just not in a long time. the thing i like best is that they play songs from new albums that arent singles. while commercial radio beats each single to a pulp, radioparadise keeps things fresh.
anyway, in the last few weeks ive heard this song several times:
it reminded me of another song so much that i actually thouht it /was/ that other song each time it came on. i just couldnt for the life of me figure out what song i thougt it was. i went around humming it for days, eventually deciding it was an old song by the tea party. i imediately set about systematically goiing through all my cds trying to find it. i coul;ndt find it. i began to think i was crazy.
i wish i had the skills to mash these up because aside from a slight tempo difference, these seem really similar to me. the guitar riff, the drum beat, even going into the chorus seems as if you could just interchange the vocals.
