Now this is really getting far afield of the ostensible aims of this blog, but here's the deal: in a fit of early 90s nostalgia inspired by an evening spent watching The Adventures of Pete and Pete on YouTube, Mary and I found ourselves involved in a game of rock and roll onedownsmanship. Having found all the good videos we could think of, we started looking for the worst that we could find. And lo, YouTube did not disappoint.
While viewing the slouching horror that is "The World I Know", we had the following exchange:
Me: "How can you not love Collective Soul? They're like Candlebox and the Goo-Goo Dolls, only suckier. That's hard to do."
Mary: "You know, we complain a lot about how MTV doesn't show videos anymore. I think, instead, we should say: Thank you, MTV, for not showing the narrative videos. Do we really need Collective Soul to tell us stories? Do we really need Axl Rose to tell us stories?"
(See how I did that? Brought it back to storytelling. My blog-fu is, indeed, mighty.)
