ZeroCorpse: 9/11 seems to have made a lot of people-- especially older ones-- crazy.

Victoria Jackson
Billy Joel
Dennis Miller
Craig T. Nelson

I still think of this whenever I think of Dennis Miller:

A Sample:

DENNIS MILLER (1988): That's all very interesting -- which is to say I wasn't listening at all -- but there's a larger issue here, kemosabe: namely, my career. What in the name of Ray Jay Johnson have you been doing for the past 15 years? I'm getting sympathy cards from the cast of  Diff'rent Strokes.

DENNIS MILLER (2003): Admittedly, mistakes were made. But I'm working on it. Did you see me last night on  Hardball?

DENNIS MILLER (1988): We'll get to that. Um, not to piss in the punch bowl here, but  Monday Night Football? What the fark were you thinking?

DENNIS MILLER (2003): It was a high-profile gig.

DENNIS MILLER (1988): What do you know about football? I seem to recall a certain touch football game at  Saturday Night Live where I asked Kevin Nealon to "hold my inhaler while I try to catch the oblong object." Football? I thought Joe Montana was a town where you couldn't get cable.

DENNIS MILLER (2003): It was a slight miscalculation.

DENNIS MILLER (1988): The Bay of Pigs was a slight miscalculation; this was a career-ending gaffe. Your weekly intellectual jousts with Dan Fouts and Leslie Vissar did not exactly remind us of the Algonquin roundtable. You alienated two huge portions of the public in one swoop -- sports people, and our hip fan base. Congratulations; you now have the cache of a low-level Tom Arnold, only without a show.

DENNIS MILLER (2003): You bastard.

DENNIS MILLER (1988): Which brings us to your weekly HBO show. I just realized that it has something in common with the great variety talk shows of the past, in that they are all now cancelled. Perhaps in retrospect getting career advice from Joe Piscopo was not wise.

DENNIS MILLER (2003): It's all under control, younger me. I've reinvented my ...

I was a fan of Miller,even saw his live show. But he really did become a douchebag after 9/11.

Mugato: You banged Christie Brinkley when she was in her 20s. I on the other hand have to listen to your bullshiat jingles every time I'm at the grocery store so STFU.

Amen, talk about overrated overplayed crap, I'm thankful he's no longer writing this drek.

We Didn't Start The Fire, there were explosive charges in the basement pt there by the government,

Seems appropriate.

Still laughing at the headline...thank you.

And here I thought it was because he was doing that crappy '60s doo-wop stuff.

/Instead of Christie Brinkley

Marisyana: If you need money quick, put out a new album. It'll sell five million just because it's unfamiliar Billy Joel.

The funny thing is that one of the reasons he stopped recording albums was that River of Dreams didn't sell upteen million copies like his previous records had.

Alphax: MisterMook: hardinparamedic: I propose that for this article, everyone who lost a family member on 9/11 and in the subsequent wars get to line up and kick Billy Joel in the balls.

Why? Because the rest of the world isn't allowed to have been depressed by 9/11?

What was done afterwards, in the name of 9/11, was far worse.

what's that got to do with Billy Joel bring upset by it?
2013-05-27 03:40:44 PM  
I call bullshiat on this one.

The man has talent, but C'mon!!!!

He was a douchebag before 9/11. He just didn't feel as entitled as he did after 9/11.
