You know, when Itzhak Pearlman and Yo-Yo Ma and the other two performance-synced during the FIRST inauguration, it wasn't a big scandal. But I guess since Beyonce is Beyonce, it's suddenly a huge farking deal.

The best performance on The Young Ones was Motorhead.

As awesome as it would have been if Lemmy performed at the innagural celebration.  That said, a live performance  The Ace Of Spades, lip-synched or otherwise, would be awkward for everyone and read like a tasteless Mel Brooks' joke from Blazing Saddles.

 Maybe they could do (We Are) The Road Crew.

Since January 27, 1991, best as I can tell. Somehow a song written and otherwise performed only in 3/4 magically went to 4/4 and has rarely come back when there's a vocalist involved.

Dear Republicans/Conservatives:

It's you worrying about minor shiat like this that makes you look like the Party of Crazy. I wish you could get your act together long enough to be a credible opposition to the Democrats. But as it is now, you're a joke. It's actually sad. No wonder Obama was easily elected to a second term.

DRTFA since I don't really care but I did come into the thread for the Young Ones. If you liked it you may like Bottom which had the actors who played Neil and Rick on it (different people) but Mike showed up every once in a while. Similar humour. Watched The Young Ones back when MTV was cool in the mid 80s. The funniest thing about the show was that both myself and my mom liked it. We have completely different tastes. Further my wife hates it (what does that tell you?).
