Wrong

Sometimes things happen that leave you amazed, perhaps even stunned or disgusted. Something like that happened to me in the car just now while listening to the local radio station.

There I was, driving along and minding my own business when I heard it. The theme song to Sesame Street. Ahhhh, this brings fond and happy memories, right?

HELL NO.

You see, it sounded like the William Heung version of Sesame Street, only, somehow, infinitely worse if you can just try and imagine that. And that? Is. Just . WRONG.

Of course, just when I thought it couldn't possibly get any crappier than it was (yes, perversely, I was listening to it in stunned disbelief. I think I was in mild shock between you and me!), they cranked it up a notch….. or 10. Because then? It turned into something between garage music and speed metal.

It was at this point that I'd had just about all I could take and switched the channel.

You know? It was so very bad that, I would rather, given the choice, prefer to listen to Britney Spears-Federline *gag* butcher her versions of "I love rock and roll" "I can't get no (satisfaction)" AND "My Prerogative" back to back…. for…. hours. And that is something I just can't handle hearing on any given day, ya know? *shudder, gag, retch*

Is NOTHING SACRED, I ask?

Yes, I heard it on the radio today also!!
You know it's not the first time the Sesame Street theme has bee redone. I recall a rave version of it in the early 90s... a bit trippy, but fun.

I don't like this new metal version, but if not for that, most of today's kids would never get to hear the Sesame Street theme at all! (since they are watching bloody Barney and god knows what other rubbish)...

The horror!!!!! You're right, that is just plain WRONG. I'm glad I didn't have to hear it. Speaking of Britney, last night VH1 had a special about Britney's Most Shocking Moments. It's was kinda funny because they had comedians just ripping her.

Oh yeah, my question I forgot about yesterday (duh!):
When you start going grey will you dye your hair? And if so, for how long?
