wtfc (who the fark cares)
2004-06-06 10:56:29 AM  
Too bad the band just didn't blow up on an airplane with Hootie. They suck.
2004-06-06 11:22:41 AM  
They're still around? I hadn't bothered to notice .. or care.

/couldn't stand 'em when they were new-n-hot, still can't stand 'em

So hot celebrity chicks are attracted to chubby dreadlock-extension wearing, berkeley-educated jewish hippies?

seriously though, Adam Duritz is teh kewl. My buddies and I met him at a local bar after a concert at MSU last year, he very personable and low key.
2004-06-06 11:54:00 AM  
Adam is a nice guy to his fans, down to earth, and keeps up with a blog that gives a lot of insights that you'd never get from other bands/singers.

He's a decent dude, whether you like his music or not.
2004-06-06 11:58:11 AM  
/has 5 rejected headlines better than this one
2004-06-06 12:02:33 PM  
he looks like freakin joe dirt with hair dye.....
2004-06-06 12:07:36 PM  
Good music, but jebus christus, it's like he's channeling the spirit of a fifteen year old girl. Kinda cat who, being a fairly famous pop/alternative star, spends his free time updating his blog, reviewing movies, and fighting with his fans on the internet about his shift from being a talented whining crooner to being a talented psuedo-whining sellout crooner. And like, swear to god everyone, I'm not dating so and so because she's so totally my good friend but, she's like the most awesomest girl ever so I hope I didn't hurt your feelings, girlfriend!

So... have you bedded Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox?
2004-06-06 12:08:07 PM  
For being a chubby, hairy fellow, he has a pretty impressive list of ex girlfriends.
2004-06-06 12:18:39 PM  
Scary? No. Dumbass? Yes.

All this from a guy that sang "I Wish I Was a Girl".
2004-06-06 01:00:26 PM  
Nick Drake is the farking man.
Er... was.
2004-06-06 01:32:45 PM  
bwahahha I have to try this in the fark filter
lets try that again!

thanks counting crows! Just brightened up my morning.
2004-06-06 01:41:29 PM  
wait a second.

he tried to climb a completely straight ladder in the middle of a room by simply balancing on it? did i read that correctly?

he should lose a ball for not thinking that through.
2004-06-06 01:46:49 PM  
Jebus Krust! Fark will put anything one here these days. Attention whores!
2004-06-06 01:48:25 PM  
My Adam Duritz story is as follows: My friends and I waited for the band to come out after a Kansas City show to get autographs and the like. Adam came out last and was signing stuff and taking pictures. Everyone kinda hovered until it was their turn. While I was waiting, Adam looked at me and said, "cool shirt". I had bought one of their shirts at the show and had it over my shoulder. I told him that I thought it was cool as well looking at the shirt. He said, "no, the one you're wearing". I happened to be wearing my Green Lantern shirt. Although I felt somewhat moronic for misunderstanding him, I did get away with my booklet of "August and Everything After" signed by most of the band.
2004-06-06 01:53:35 PM  
seriously.. 10 foot drop combined with nails sticking out of a fallen ladder! This does not make for a "Scary" tag.. should be labeled with the "Sad" tag.
2004-06-06 02:05:47 PM  
A friend of mine many years ago fell from a real wooden ladder, which someone had driven a nail into the side of to hang paint buckets from. The head of that nail caught his scrotum and ripped it open on the way down. His mom 'held his nuts in place' all the way to the hospital. Painful and humiliating, but the guy grew into a 6' 2" brute that no one would've dared make fun of for it...

My story kicks the S$#t out of Adam's and it has far fewer words.

Here's a one word tip 'Mr. Artiste' - brevity.
2004-06-06 02:31:00 PM  
Damn! ...The head of that nail caught his scrotum... I wish I had not read that!
2004-06-06 02:31:47 PM  
scalpod just saved the thread!
2004-06-06 05:02:13 PM  
Ya know, if he does castrate himself then he could do duets with the lead singer of The Darkness.
2004-06-06 05:40:36 PM  

blah blah blah blah..


Nick Drake.

So let me get this straight:

you read the story, then read the thread, then go to the trouble of posting, even posting a witty picture, and you ask "who the fark cares"?
2004-06-06 08:13:13 PM  
"She's smart as a whip. She sings great. She makes me feel good when I feel bad. And she's just fun to be around. So I highly recommend her to you boys out there. She rules. But you better be cool to her. Or I will come beat the living crap out of you every day for a month. Whoever does get to date her wins the lottery. "

That guy couldn't beat the living crap out of my 85 year old neighbor.

And he's dead.

2004-06-06 08:41:48 PM  
too bad
2004-06-06 09:08:46 PM  
Great to hear. I was a bit ambivalent about Buscemi, but Adam would have been too, too much.
2004-06-06 09:24:54 PM  
Now this is a farked-up situation. And i'm still hanging by one arm.

Guess he was really "Hanginaround", huh? Nyuk, nyuk.

But I like being a boy. I don't want to be a girl.

What happened to "I Wish I Was a Girl"?
2004-06-07 12:06:54 AM  
Everyone needs to buy a Little Giant ladder to avoid this situation.
2004-06-07 12:25:30 AM  

So let me get this straight:

you read the story, then read the thread, then go to the trouble of posting, even posting a witty picture, and you ask "who the fark cares"?

I couldn't agree more. If it's not worth your while then why post? And yeah, I was the submitter (currently at 1 for 1 on submitted/approved links).

Counting Crows being my favourite band and all, I feel I have to take exception to the CC haters. I don't know too many other bands who are prepared to hang out after shows with their fans, as well as encouraging the recording and distribution of bootlegs.

They're all nice guys in my book.
2004-06-07 12:28:13 AM  
Although I found this vaguely amusing, I really can't stand this guy or his band. I had the misfurtune of seeing them at woddstock '99. I swear to Bob, every intro he made for the songs, and there were many, started like this: "This is a song about when you're in your mid-20's, and you have no direction and no idea where you life is heading.....BLAHBLAHBALHBLAH..." Every damn one of them.
2004-06-07 02:28:58 AM  
Too long to read. Please condense into one sentence what happened.
2004-06-07 09:01:00 AM  
I guess he was 'cookin' in the sun'.
2004-06-07 09:34:19 AM  
What did I do???? :)
2004-06-07 01:27:35 PM  
I concur with Arnold Jackson...
Who farking Cares?

Counting Crows sucks, Hooty sucks, Frat Rock just SUCKS.
