Merry Veddermas!

A very Merry Veddermas to everyone! I hope you're all drinking many bottles of wine in celebration of our musical saviour, born on this day 46 years ago.

Yes, I'm still observing Veddermas, even though Eddie decided to get married this year. TO A MODEL. Not very godlike, if you ask me. Well, it's exactly what that crazy bastard Zeus would do, but none of the top gods would. Then again, they're not exactly chick magnets...the Christian God is a single dad, Allah has a violent streak, Krishna has too much of a Big Love thing going on, Jah's stoned all the time and Buddha...well, he's not even really a god. I mean, if he were, I'm sure he would've given himself some hair and tight abs.

So, what was my point? I don't know, but I should probably just wish you all a Merry Veddermas one last time and end this post before someone declares a holy war on my blog. I think I'm still on a few "lists" due to my Eddie/Jesus comparison a couple of years back.

Did you bake a Veddermas cake this year?

No, I'm with you on this, especially when that first record came out. He really was Jesus-like.

Merry Eddiemas to you and yours, BeckEye!

Being a fan of Eddie Vedder you probably already know about this but former Doors drummer, John Densmore, has stated he refuses to participate in any Doors reunion that doesn't involve Eddie Vedder. Based on Vedder's performance at the Doors induction ceremony into the RRHOF several years ago, Densmore has declared Eddie as the only singer equal to the task of "replacing" Jim Morrison in the Doors.

I recall a discussion I had with a friend of mine in high school back in the early 90s:

Me: Is it just me or do Eddie's eyes look really evil in the video for Jeremy?
Robb: Dude! Eddie Vedder's eyes look really evil when they're OPEN.

Keep in mind that was the early 90s. I don't think Eddie's eyes look quite so sinister as they once did.

Ewww. Eddie Vedder's vocals irritate the HELL out of me.

I prefer to celebrate KISSmas.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year, BeckEye.

"Is that a boxer, or the bag?"

My main memory of his lyrics.

Man, his hair has really grown since his bald headed days with the Smashing Pumpkins.

(I like beating dead horses.)

Word ver = "hotilin" Are the Google Gods saying "Hot? I lying."

I have hung a Yellow Ledbetter atop the tree.

I'm not even sure what that means, but have a great holiday anyway, Beckeye!

 

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.
