Me 1st!
2001-08-26 01:27:43 AM  
sitting through all the brittney spears and n'sync crap would be worth it to see walken, anyday.
2001-08-26 01:40:25 AM  
I'd like to see Britney Spears on the stage at the same time as Walken...especially if he gave her the same speech he gave Dennis Hopper in True Romance. Oh that would be perfect.

For like the 5th time this week, we have a repeat article, this was on fark several days ago.
2001-08-26 01:59:48 AM  
Presenters will include Aaliyah, Dale Earnhardt (news - web sites) Jr., Jimmy Fallon, Macy Gray, Will
Ferrell, Jewel, Nelly, Shaquille O'Neal, Shakira, Christopher Walken and Mark Wahlberg.

Somebody warn the Walken! Two people on this list have died(or their Progenators (sp?)! Get naked! Wear the tin foil hat and subjugate yourself to Rotard! Only then will you be saved! All your jackasses are belong to us! The Walken will prevail!

the only reason i am gonna watch is Linkin Park and Staind play

yea yea "dude likin park is gay listen to Slipknot dude"

well sorry i like LP (and some Slipknot songs are ok)
2001-08-26 02:56:20 AM  
why no link to shakira? it's because she's hispanic isn't it? farking racists.
2001-08-26 03:12:18 AM  
Aaliya's a presenter? Maybe a contract is set in stone,but I think they should....uhh...never mind.
Now Im gonna go to hell.
2001-08-26 03:47:06 AM  
Walken baby.. that is a show.

maybe he will have his cowbell?
2001-08-26 03:52:12 AM  
Jordy099 is the smartest person here.

Linkin Park and Staind are the only reasons I will watch the VMA's.

On a related note, has anybody seen the new MTV show Live at the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame? Best show on MTV. The last two weeks have featured the two afforementioned bands. Wednesday nights at 8:00. Watch it.
2001-08-26 03:59:39 AM  
Will he be advertising Skittles?
2001-08-26 04:27:59 AM  
linkin park and staind are as worthless and nsync and their pals. how could anyone possibly listen to that shallow music and find something substantial? i bet you like puddle of mud too. im sorry.
2001-08-26 05:51:17 AM  
I heard Aaliyah was scheduled to appear with him, and they've decided to proceed as planned, using an elaborate network of pulleys and fishing line a la 'weekend at bernie's.'
2001-08-26 06:07:23 AM  
I'll lay you odds that Walken does some sort of dance routine. Maybe he'll reference his Fat Boy Slim video. Either way, the man's a major league hoofer and is proud of it. Watch his feet baby, they'll be a shufflin'.
2001-08-26 09:06:22 AM  
be interestng to see what bands popular right now will still be so in say five years
2001-08-26 09:39:29 AM  
Jordy099 is the smartest person here.

He's the smartest person here because he listens to the same kind of music as you? Wow, that is logical.[/sarcasm]

Listen to some real music.
2001-08-26 10:19:57 AM  
Yes, I think we'll get a little dancing out of him. Maybe he'll do a spoof of the boy bands, complete with head-mike. LOL
2001-08-26 11:52:55 AM  
Yawgmoth. Answer = ZEEEEEEE-RO.
To have staying power, one must first have a modicum of talent. Although today, controversy can sustain a 'career' as long as talent. So many mush heads today get the two mixed up. I have actually heard people tell me, to my face. that Milli Vanilli had talent. 'Nuff said.
2001-08-26 12:27:40 PM  
Christopher Walken is gay!!!!

Oh, I'm sorry, I meant that other guy.
2001-08-26 12:37:46 PM  
Screw Staind, Alien Ant Farm wil be there!
2001-08-26 12:44:27 PM  
Bill_Cosby: So I guess that since those bands are on MTV they must not be any good, huh? Only music you listen to is "real music", right? You arrogant turd.
2001-08-26 12:48:30 PM  
Jebrinklog: No, I don't like Puddle of Mud.

And please enlighten me on why Staind and LP are "shallow" and what music you would consider "deep".

And please let me know why music has to be "deep" and "substantial" to be entertaining.
2001-08-26 01:03:17 PM  
bill what is real music in your eyes

whatever it is i probley like it 2
2001-08-26 01:45:31 PM  
Most modern radio rock sucks.
2001-08-26 04:44:32 PM  
that was kinda my point ;).
I don't like ripping on what other people like though. Doesn't mean I like it though ;).
thegrue: yah, I agree. sometimes I hear something new that strikes me as good, but only sometimes.
2001-08-26 05:23:35 PM  
Hooray for me, my first accepted submission! Now I should comment on it: I wrote the tagline because I knew that's what you wanted, but I'll watch the VMAs anyway, just in case Mudvayne or Gorillaz wins the MTV2 award. So, I typed not from the heart, but I typed a tagline that farkers would approve of. I sold out, I'm a bastard.
2001-08-26 06:22:06 PM  
Hey, if you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem. I will never hold back from telling someone that their music suxdik. If they can convince me otherwise, then more power to them. And usually, time will tell. The only reason some songs survive is that they may attached to a movie's soundtrack or a TV show. Otherwise, it's all ear pudding.

Blues. Jazz. Rock. Classical. And yes, country. They are the primary colors of the music chart. Out of those, certain tangents have emerged, only to fade away.

I get on WinMX, Gnutella, etc., and look at the majoriity of the music libraries of the members and I laugh. They always have the same songs. Lame-ass rappers or now, crossover rap/rockers. Whenever one genre starts to fade, they always tend to meld into another market to suck up the unitiated.

My kids will tell me, "Man, you've never heard anything like this before!!" at which point I'll pull out the original version of whatever song that particular artist has stolen, er, I mean 'sampled'. They are always amazed.

Maybe I'm a voice in the wilderness on this. But then again, maybe I'm just a purest.
2001-08-26 06:26:30 PM  
And here's something that pisses ME off. (oh great).

Why is it that whenever someone gets an article submitted, they have to toe the ground and nonchalantly bring it up in a thread. Or worse, come right out and brag? You got a submission. Whooptyfuk. Call me when you win a Nobel prize.

As they say to all those lame-o glory hounds in the NFL that do everything but masturbate after scoring a touchdown, "Be cool man. Act like you've been there before."

We all check out the bio's. We'll see how many posts you have. Besides, it's quality, not quantity. If you DO post, make them good.
2001-08-26 09:17:55 PM  
all pop music sucks......
as soon as it hits mainstream the edge is gone.....

oh, by POP I mean ANYTHING on Mtv
2001-08-26 09:52:26 PM  
Well Sorrrrrrry! Xprezbillclinton, I had no idea I was the only person to mention that they submitted the article in the thread. Well, no worries. I gave you the article, and I can take it away from you! *arrgh* *umph* Gimme that article!
2001-08-26 09:55:46 PM  
And Augie Ben Doggie, since when is everything on MTV pop? Do you think every single video on that channel instantly propels the band or artist to superstardom? Adema, Pete Yorn, and Mudvayne have all had videos or currently have videos on MTV, yet they aren't big name stars.
2001-08-27 01:12:04 AM  
Yea, I hear ya.. but the sound baby... Nothing new out there..just mindless.........
2001-08-27 01:13:25 AM  
not big, but POP.... don't get bad cause your Alternative music is now the mainstream and therefore POP. it is not my doing.

now, with that said... I like some POP.. I have favs in almost every genre of music.... that is what happens after 8+ years working for a record company
2001-08-27 01:15:00 AM  
hey WALKEN, I like you and all, but the ...... thing is MINE.

FARK OFF!.....
2001-08-27 01:33:38 AM  
doggie......what......R..U.....talking about.......?

Get over it........!!
2001-08-27 01:34:12 AM  
You're a cantalope.....
2001-08-27 08:21:00 PM  
I want him to come out in his Prophecy coat, and do some sort of a dance in a fairly dark stage.....puuurrrrrrr..........
2001-08-27 08:22:28 PM  
OK OK Where the frig did my picture go - me not happy and me going to cry. WAAAAAAAAA!!! Are Tripod pics no-no's? :*(
2001-08-27 08:25:21 PM  
OK This is a Walken Picture Test. This is only a test. Had this been a real picture, you would have seen something below - or maybe you will :)

2001-08-27 08:26:09 PM  
And now you all know that my HTML is failing me this evening. Oh well :) LOL I'll shut up now LOL
2001-08-27 10:51:44 PM
