Forgotten Classic Video of the Week (and No, I Haven't Forgotten That American Idol is a Sham)

This week's video is for a song that just popped into my head after the travesty of last night's AI results. I can't believe that it's been 16 years since this song came out, but I can't believe a lot of things these days. Have another taste of the grunge-lite stylings of Ugly Kid Joe with their summer of '92 hit, "Everything About You" from America's Least Wanted.

You may wonder who, exactly, is the target of my unadulterated hatred right now. Nigel Lythgoe? Ryan Seacrest? The tweentards of America? Nah. They're not worth my time. After unsuccessfully attempting to buy Pearl Jam tickets online today (oh, my browser just happened to lock up at the crucial moment) I've decided that there are more powerful forces working against me these days. Who do I blame?

Well, I've thought long and hard about this and I've decided that my God would not allow these awful recent events to transpire. So it must be someone else's God. Yeah, this all just screams Ra the Sun God. I've never trusted that guy. I don't like the looks of him. Those beady little bird eyes, that faux wrap skirt...he's a hot feathered tranny mess. Screw you, Ra. Go take a long walk like an Egyptian off a short pier.

And no, I'm not worried about pissing Ra off. I mean, what's he gonna do to make things worse? Make it rain every weekend? Oh wait, it does that already.

I used to worship Ra, then I found out he was waging an idiotic war on the Jewish people, who indeed had no weapons of mass destruction nor were harbouring any terrorists.

Nowadays, I worship Harry Potter. I don't entirely trust him, as he's going through puberty and could become volatile, but I think he's a safer alternative.

"Ra Ra Sis Boom Bah". Bah ha ha!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Oh no! You've been bitch-slapped by the evil ticketmaster too? I understand they've got Ra in their right-hand pocket. Bastards.

This video reminds me of watching MTV like a crack fiend and drolling over the lead singer dude back in the day. God I feel old.

Have ya read Neil Gaiman's fascinating book, "American Gods"?
For some reason I was reminded of it when ya mentioned RA.
It's definitely worth a read.

Ra has long been my favorite god. I don't believe in any god, but if I did, it would be Ra.

You have SUCH a following. People hang on your every word and no are hilarious. Excellent, excellent blog.

I just found out and had to stop by and offer my condolences.

American Idol may have let him down, but BeckIdol never will.

I'm thinking that it's not Ra but Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love.

She hates Seattle Grunge hence the ticket hoodoo voodoo.

Historical Wit said...

Beckster, it was not from house of ra from whence the trickery came from, but from the cold north! It was Loki, the norse god of trickery and lies! I swear it! I swear it!

mellowlee said...

Haha! I used to love reading about Egytian and Greek Gods, and mythology. Ra IS a creep! BOOO to ticketmaster as well! :O(

LoraLoo said...

Ticketmaster seriously blows.

Ticketmaster and its scalper cronies have screwed me more times than I can count.

And thanks are in order to the biggest voice against that shady mess, Eliot Spitzer, for f*cking up and indirectly letting the issue die.

Bloody Awful Poetry said...

Meh. Ra is an alright dude, really. I don't know why people throw so much shtick at him. I believe he is simply misunderstood.
Personally however, I must agree with Historical Wit. It's gotta be Loki. He is one snivelling bastard, I tell you.

Sounds like a transition to making this a Stargate blog.

Better than an American Idol blog.

pistols at dawn said...

That was bold, to come out in favor of Ugly Kid Joe ("UKJ" to its fan) and against Ra.

The sun will shine again - not in your world, because Ra will block it from you, but in the worlds of others. And we will tell you about it.


Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
