Okay, ya don't wanna hear about boomer/yuppies and their slack eyed spawn?

Or corporate government and its undeniable impacts?

Or shredding of your Constitution too much of a drag to think about?

Fine.

But fer gawds sake, a teaser of Pointer Sisters' "Yes We Can Can" followed by What-The-Fuck-Is-He-Whining-About Maroon 5 and Beyonce going through the Revlon/Cadillac moments of actual soul music?

Gawd forbid I EVER hear that Barry Manilowesque, We Are The World 20 years later, "genius" Will.i.am Pepsi syrupy dreck EVER again.

DON'T PEOPLE GET THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ORIGINAL/SOULFUL AND CORPORATIZED/SOLD OUT?

:rant:

I got the beauty today and the look in peoples' eyes. This corporate crap is a TRAVESTY and it's embarrassing to have it be the representation of US culture at official Inaugural events.

Where's ARETHA? Where's ETTA? Where are the POINTERS?

WHERE IS THE SOUL?

Maroon 5 singer spreading his legs apart is just pathetic.

Beyonce, Get yourself out of that harness before its too late!!

1. Are you all right?
I hope so.

Aretha was at the inauguration today. Did you miss her? She was sensational.

8. So?
The kids are having fun. That's all that matters. The music's not that important to them - what they're enjoying is the socializing.

They have a lot of time in front of them to establish more sophisticated musical tastes, among other things.

They're kids. I was nuts for Cinderella and Snow White when I was little - did that make me a Disney drone?

Would a Disney drone be friends with James Cotton?

Well, probably, yeah, but the truth is that the kids will always be all right.

And here's to you, on this night of nights..........

:toast:

"The kids are having fun. That's all that matters. The music's not that important to them - what they're enjoying is the socializing."

wrong

"They have a lot of time in front of them to establish more sophisticated musical tastes, among other things."

No one said anything about "sophisticated"?

And if kids "having fun" are raised on corporate dreck, how is "sophisticated" even on the radar screen?

13. Well,
you seem to have a tiny, narrow, ill-informed view of this matter. I must say, I do feel sorry for your kids, but I rather suspect you don't have any. I hope you don't. Kids deserve better than what you offer.

Enjoy your clueless world, and don't get so agitated that you keep hitting the "Post message" button over and over. Your control needs show you up for the lamer that you are.

And now, in my world, you no longer exist.

(You're so simpleminded and thick, I just know you'll respond to this post, even though you're on my Ignore list.)

3. Bunch of corporate feel-good fluff
I will be watching closely over the next few weeks to see if there is anything real (some teeth) to this administration, or if they will just sell the "dream" on Main-stream-Media. They will need to get work tomorrow morning fixing the wrongs of the past 8 years...

Yep, it's been a week or two since some Boomer was pissing and moaning about this, so we were due for another thread.
