And honestly, those two songs I like? Fucked if I know when I last played them. I only put that song on the list because it worked. I wish you'd stop fucking harping on about shit and making it seem more significant than it is. You've done it before and you keep doing it now. Just shut up, OK?
If I flipped out like this every time you made a (ultimately harmless) generalization about America, I'd probably have broken a couple of keys on my keyboard by now.

I'm not sorry I missed that, then.

And I tell you what, these days Mike Myers just pisses me off whenever I see him on TV or read about him. I just want to go up to him and scream "SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP YOU'RE NOT FUNNY AND STOP RUINING AWESOME STUFF LIKE DR SEUSS!!!!!!"

It's not all that good, true, and Chris' falsetto in the verses is just silly, but I don't think it's nearly as bad as someeveryone here claims.
I think it'll be played before we descend into the Apocalypse, before all of the Norwegian black metal, but that's okay.

That would seem to be the case.

I kinda like it.

But I also like the studio version of Stuck In A Momentito.

Ha! To be fair, I think the first half of the song is dreadful and then the second half is quite pretty.

I've got a selection of the Eponymous, Woodface, Time On Earth, Farewell To The World, Temple of Low men, and Afterglow

Guess I'll listen to Crowded house

He needs to pull a Jim Carrey and go the dramatic route, I know he can do it. Carrey was able to tone it down a bit and still be funny in The truman Show, but he kept a real poignancy throughout and sold the dramatic moments. Then there's Eternal Sunshine... shit.

I could see Mike Myers coming back in a P.T Anderson-esque ensemble film, too. I don't know, I just want him not to suck anymore.

I was shocked listening. I figured it was an exaggeration. It wasn't.

Certainly not my least favourite fashion choice, though.

The ending isn't all that bad, like you said, but I'm so alienated by the beginning that the payoff doesn't work. Same thing happened to me watching Blue Velvet.
