To repeat what I said elsewhere (http://bubblegumcageiv.tumblr.com/post/58254229689/fyi-i-am-against-this-charlie-brown-smiths-meme):

FYI, I am against this Charlie Brown/Smiths meme that keeps popping up today. Why bother putting Smiths lyrics in Peanuts speech balloons? Schulz did gallows humour better than Morrissey ever did. In most cases, in the correct context, the original text would be both funnier and sadder.

I wonder how many times both Schulz and Morrissey had to hear some variation on that sentence.

Bottom line, I'm a huge Peanuts fan and not much of a Smiths fan, so I'm offended by the suggestion that these mashups are bringing something out of Schulz's work that wasn't already there. At best, they're stating the obvious.

But you're right - I should get over it!

eschewing the fact that morrissey is an unadulterated arsehole for a moment, does anyone else think that his music is, you know, a bit shit? self-pity to that degree infuriates me beyond belief.

Charlie Brown singing How Soon Is Now is absolute perfect.

He forgets to mention how epic the amount of coke everyone railed during the making of this record was.

I don't watch Dexter, but the level of vitriol is something I haven't seen since the release of Mass Effect 3.

though the ending was a bit shit, I don't think it was quite as bad as some made it out be and was a bit better than some of the preceding episodes. But the whole last season was incredibly lazy and just made the episode worse than it really was. The worst part is that it's obvious what the writers were going for and that in theory the ending they were going for wasn't really a bad idea... but it was a really bad execution of that idea.

this one's good too.

When I saw that someone had posted in this thread I just knew it was going to be the Bub/Albini vid. I think we can close the thread now. Nothing's going to top this.
