Best of Dusty in circa 4minutes:



I always wondered how she had that kind of vocal tone (that signature raspy whisper in her ballads). It doesn't sound natural(?). But maybe it is. Think I read somewhere - or imagined I read somewhere lol - that Julie London got her bluesy voice from smoking too much. Aye the good ol' days. London had excellent technique/execution, but imo her natural tone was nowhere near the greats - Ella, Holiday, Dusty, Petula, Shirley, etc. Iirc I used to have a record with some jazz covers by Petula C. - not sure if that's unexpected exactly, since she's more known for her poppy upbeat numbers, but they were surprisingly good in a different way.

Speaking of unique vocal tones, I just remembered this girl. Something about her voice is just sooo satisfying. Listening to her is like scratching an itch or something. #commentsthatmakesensetonoone

..Ok best control myself else I'll be down this 50s/60s rabbit hole all night long

I'm starting to view remakes and reboots differently. It is not always going to be the same. A storyline or character may have similarities to the original but there will be something different, something new. Truthfully I didn't like the new Star Wars movie. It is not like the original. Even with the new Aladdin movie. Some remake and reboot are good while some are bad. I rather be open minded to the new changes. In fact I'm pretty open-minded to movies unless it is just not my kind of movie. Like 50 Shades of Grey or The Wolf of Wallstreet. I just don't see the need to be quick to judge a movie or tv show because it is not like the original or the first X-amount of sequals. What do you expect? New writers mean new storyline and creativity. Something if not all is going to be different.

Continuing on last nite's train of thought.. I've wondered why Back to Black made the splash that it did when it was released. The tunes are catchy enough I guess. But lyrically it's uninteresting (largely about W's dysfunctional relationship with ex-husband) and the music smacks of Mark R's mediocre production. Doesn't really hold up to repeated listens. The fact that the new wave of similar artists riding on BtB's coattails - e.g., Adele - straying further and further from their original style in order to stay relevant kinda shows the genre's lack of depth in general. The whole retro/glam thing was fresh for two seconds, then it got stale.

(Actually quite enjoy her debut, Frank, though - wittier lyrics, better vocals, more unique sound overall. Kind of a waste that she didn't continue in that direction.)

...suddenly remembered this:

Some killer vocalists you have going on there. I recently discovered Kovacs. She's got kind of a Shirley Bassey vibe.......

Watching a YouTuber opening an old can with an ox tongue in it was the highlight of my night. So gross.

Was it a whole ox tongue or just part of one? I saw a cow tongue one time at the store and it was as big as you'd think a cow tongue would be. I wouldn't think that would fit in a normal sized can. Maybe some kind of ginormous can or something.

You need to PM me this link so I can watch this.

@WillYouStopDave ..I once had a part time job in a butchers shop, I didn't last long at it, but one of my duties was fishing 8 cow tongues out of a barrel of ice water stored in the walk in freezer for display on the counter, talk about freaky fishing, a barrel full of tongues.






And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

It was the whole tongue I think. Haha. Oh, wow. I could imagine it would be. I don't think I'd want to try a cow or ox tongue let alone a 50 year one. I think in the video he said 40 years.

I got one for you. I actually posted it before but I'll have to find it.

Choosing between a 50 year old ox tongue or a relatively recent expired rotten egg is a tough decision.

Man for a split second I thought I was having a Deja vu while watching my favorite video game "Jet Set Radio Future" 5 hour gameplay on Youtube but I wasn't. I played this game many of times from the beginning to the end. My dumb self forgot. {It been about 2 years. My Xbox went out} I was like "This area seem familiar. I been here before." NO-DUH.
It was weird because I am about a hour and 30 so minutes into the video. It was at a particular scene that made me feel the Deja vu moment. The other scenes in the game didn't have that affect on me despite playing it many of times in the game. Just weird. {I'm weird. lol}

I'm dead. I know he's just regurgitated spock vibes but I love brainy from supergirl so muuuch. The fact that the actor is also half asian and his character's love interest is trans is just icing on the proverbial cake.

I know Bowie more from his acting than his music but he seemed to have led an interesting life. Would really like to see a fantasy musical about him similar to Rocketman.

Some of these are not too funny but some of the ones where people don't get hurt are hilarious.

I dig the NIN reference on Miley Cyrus's new song On a Roll. It's a catchy song, too. I have mixed opinions about her EP, though. There's like 2 songs I don't like off of it. Don't care for the drug lyrics but IDK why a lot of songs that sing about drugs are such bangers. I can't stand drugs but a lot of them I've heard sound good. There's one song she has that's just horrible and I couldn't listen the whole way through. Cattitude or whatever. Lol

I like Party Up the Street, The Most, D.R.E.A.M, and Unholy. Mother's Daughter isn't bad but has kind of a generic beat. I think Party Up the Street and The Most are the best ones. Wish she could sing more on Party Up the Street, though. I'll take On a Roll and my other two fave songs over the rest, though even though On a Roll isn't on the EP. Just don't care for the whole drugs thing at all. I guess now that I've reviewed her EP, it isn't bad as a whole. Just that one song and mainly the lyrics in a couple of her songs. If I like the beat and voice, I'll listen to it and tune out the lyrics. Hope she comes out with a really good album.

WTF, DC/WB already cancelled the new Swamp Thing TV series. They only released one episode, and it honestly wasn't bad.

Setup progress now at 100% capacity.

What? I didn't know. They did all of that and cancelled it? They wasted their money doing that.

Now this right here is a Sonic Movie.


I only into an hour. It bring back memories. It is even better when you haven't watched the game before in so long. It been years since I was little. The first Adventure level was awesome. It was all beachy feeling. The sky and clouds, the water, the whale. Oh how it was awesome. You gotta love Sonic. Except for that hideous looking wannabe Sonic they jack'd up. I have no kind words for that thing. Seriously. Oh and then Ruin Adventure Level. You gotts love the background music. Unfortuantly when I was little I only got up to the second adventure. It was a demo play. I never saw the third adventure. Strangely I remember the Casino. Overall it is like watching a movie. I'm enjoying this game play.


What is making me have a "OH COM'ON" moments is when Sonic and Tails manage to find a Chaos gem but then here come Eggman to snatch it away. I'm sorry but they are so stuuuupid I swear Tails had handed Eggman that gem. It was TOO easy. Tails had his arms all stretch out carelessly when Eggman went YOINK! And I thought I was slow, naive and gullible. They Sonic gang got me beat. Players did all that work of obtaining the Chaos gem only for Sonic and his friends {I'm blaming Tails} to carelessly get it snatch by Eggman in the end. It is too funny.
