Bad Boys

I was over at Danny's yesterday and this
was playing on the stereo. Rather, the song as covered by some American Idol dude was playing on the stereo. Not that it was bad but it made me think I should go look up the original.


Did you you know that this was the band's first single off their debut effort but it didn't do well because Columbia Records was too busy promoting Bruce Springsteen's first record?

Did you know that Steve played the piano? I mean, like, ever? He just doesn't seem like a piano player type. But it's interesting to watch a performance that doesn't have him strutting all over the stage, isn't it?

Did you know that Joe didn't really care for this song because it was "too soft"? (That Joe. He's so pretty).

Did you know that I think Steve Tyler is so ugly that he turns right around the corner and becomes beautiful? I don't know what it is about him...

Interestingly, while I think his daughter Liv is lovely and seems like a very nice person I also consider her one of the most over-rated actors ever. (All the Hobbit people are going to get mad at me now).

I like this song because it does that slow build thing. And because Steven Tyler's rock scream is one of the classics in the Rock Scream Hall of Fame. And also because this is one of those rock songs that actually contains some very good advice.

Aerosmith "Dream On"

(* I totally heard Dwight Shrute's voice in my head when I wrote that).

Dwight Shrute will forever go down in TV character history.

Jim Halpert: Question. What kind of bear is best?
Dwight Schrute: That's a ridiculous question.
Jim Halpert: False. Black bear.
Dwight Schrute: That's debatable. There are basically two schools of thought--
Jim Halpert: Fact. Bears eat beets. Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica.
Dwight Schrute: Bears do not... What is going on?! What are you doing?!

"You look like a Tolkien character."

"No, I mean a hobbit."

"Do you live in a small house?"

Ok, Sfoof, who's turn is it to get out of whose head now? TOTALLY the bit I was thinking of.

JP: That cracked me up. Thought of that, too, when I was writing the bit about Liv.

Anonyba: Question: When will you play Iron Maiden. Answer: When pigs fly. Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica.

HAH HAH "turns right around the corner and becomes beautiful". I so totally GET that!
Wun'erful. Just fantastic.
Also, his older daughter, Mia, is a hottie patootey plus size model. Seriously, she makes my people waaaay prouder than the Elf princess.

His is the definitive rock and roll scream!
Yeah,I know I'm all hip and shit,but I really do like Aerosmith.
I guess the best example of ugly/beautiful I can think of is Pheobe Snow.
Not the most colorful marble in the bag,but when she sings!...damm.

Um, you really don't want to eff with the Tolkien folk.

They will gut you like a fish if you say something bad about Hobbits and such.

I have scary scary flashbacks whenever I hear this song.

Oh, I'm so glad JP reprised the Dwight line-age. He can turn just about any dialogue Instant Classico-stuffness.
