The Big Star yawn is pretty telling, talk about a band that was too fantastic for their own good.

Not from that set, obviously, but I've always thought Hooky had kind of a Hans Gruber thing going on when he was younger.

Just for the record, sometimes shiat is in a slides how because it's a list of visual items that you are intended to see singly. It's not always some kind of scam to use up your bandwidth. Besides, it's not a slides how when multiple entries are on a single farking page, it's a list that isn't a 40 MB single page that will take forever(in 2013 terms) to load.

Jesus, some people biatch about anything..
 
2013-03-07 12:22:40 AM  
I AM getting tired of all of these lists being "ridiculous" or "insane" or "unbelievable", especially since they usually aren't.
 
2013-03-07 12:26:23 AM  
What a bunch of 'meh'. I was hoping for at least a few that looked like they belonged on one of those 'awkward family photos' pages.

but what's more bestest and worstest than pictures is radio spots!

wanna hear Zappa hawk a Remington Electric Razor? the Rolling Stones selling Rice Krispies? the Who, Neil Diamond, Vanilla Fudge, the Moody Blues, the Bee Gees, and the Troggs telling you to buy Coke (aCola), all on different ads? Cream (getting paid for) telling you which beer you should buy? Iron Butterfly telling you which deodorant you should buy?

As bad as most of these are, I do believe that the Pantera early publicity shots (pre-CFH) are the benchmark for WTF?! especially considering the aesthetic that the band wound up going with a short while later.

If you look at the source, the problem with that site isn't that it has too many pictures, it's that it was written by idiots.

I didn't debate that. The OP was biatching about the slideshow, and that's what I was responding to.

Yeah, the "list" sucks, nothing outrageous, "ridiculous" or even interesting there...
