After the billion-and-a-half visitors The City of Floating Blogs has received regarding the untimely death of actor Jonathan Brandis, I’d be remiss if I didn’t post a little something about the late SeaQuest star today.
The whole thing gets a little bit eerie over at Jim Treacher’s place. Treacher pastes an imdb board message from January that may be from Brandis. It may also be from some weirdo. Who knows? It’s kind of creepy though.
Now, I’m not the awesomest dude to ever walk the earth or anything, but The Washington Post‘s Tim Page is a right butthole. On yesterday’s All Things Considered, Page reviewed Let it Be… Naked. I don’t understand why NPR chose someone who obviously never liked Let it Be in the first place to review the new version, but I can accept it. It doesn’t make sense, but fine. Whatever.
My problem is the fact that Page refers to the abundance of Paul McCartney songs on the disc as being “a little like going to a Three Stooges festival and finding nothing but Shemp episodes.”
Evidently Page is one of the many Beatles fans who has decided to let the fact that McCartney is more skilled at not standing in front of bullets than his bandmate tarnish the cute one’s legacy.
Well, way to go Tim Page. You write for The Washington Post and talk on NPR, two things I’d sure like to do. But I guess I’m just not quite butthole-y enough. I suppose now you’re going to tell me that if I wrote for The Washington Post or spoke on NPR, I wouldn’t be permitted to use words like “butthole” or their nonexistent adjective counterparts. I’ll bet you’d also like to inform me that The Washingsuck Post and NP(suck)R don’t busy themselves with frivolity like mpegs of The Matrix with farts added in with hilarious results. Well, la-di-da! Aren’t I a crass and lowly excuse for a writer, Mr. Superpants?!
If The Washington Post and/or National Public Radio would be interested in hiring me for entertaining and insightful counterpoints to Tim Page’s work like the one you just read, feel free to contact me via email to discuss my fee. I come cheap, but I will charge extra if I’m asked to refrain from using my catch-phrase, “Tim Page is a right butthole.”
