Idiot of the Day

 Some people just can't leave well enough alone.  MSN reported: 

Waters has re-recorded Pink Floyd's classic rock epic "The Dark Side of the Moon," without the help of any of the band members that originally helped create the album with him, the musician said in a Feb. 4 interview with the German newspaper Berliner ZeitungArticle

The interview yielded more details:

First, however, he wants to demonstrate something special: In the studio of his house, he plays three tracks from a brand new re-recording of “The Dark Side of the Moon”, which celebrates its 50th birthday in March. “The new concept is meant to reflect on the meaning of the work, to bring out the heart and soul of the album,” he says, “musically and spiritually. I’m the only one singing my songs on these new recordings, and there are no rock and roll guitar solos.”

The spoken words, superimposed on instrumental pieces like “On The Run” or “The Great Gig in the Sky” and over “Speak To Me”, “Brain Damage” “Any Colour You Like and Money” are meant to clarify his “mantra”, the message he considers central to all his work: “It’s about the voice of reason..." Interview

Yup, those pesky guitar solos just get in the way of the true message.

Yea. Can’t wait for it. I’ll listen to it drinking a nonalcoholic beer while eating only the casing from some boudin. William Shatner already tried this with Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. I dare you to watch the entire video on YouTube. Shatner’s swill will be a masterpiece compared to this. David Gilmore will be the first to buy this and play it at parties while his friends and grandkids laugh their ass off. What a ridiculous idea. After listening to this I will want to watch Saving Private Ryan with all the gunfire omitted And a replay of the Super Bowl with the football digitally removed. Let’s do a Sports Illustrated swimsuit calendar with just the swimsuits. Time to hang it up Roger. Go fight for Putin and leave this alone. What’s the harm? I’m going to download this by mistake one day thinking I’m getting the real thing. Probably won’t figure it out till I’m on the boat and que it up at sunset.

"The best way to stop an atomic bomb is to stand in the landing area and catch it before it hits the ground. The atom is no longer loading, it's in the air. And that bitch is gonna land, like a bird. See if you can catch it, clown."

Rock and Roll music had the best lyrics.

Thank you.

Huh? Well, in Kingfish's defense, it was posted at almost midnight.

Honestly it’s just music. People will like it or not.

I imagine the new lyrics are Roger’s reading The Protocols of The Elders of Zion.”

He’s an antisemitic loon.

I cannot imagine how that album could be improved.

Who cares about this irrelevant boomer complaining about “daddy and the war” in 2023 when we have Spliffsheezy, Yunggreezy, McCheezy, and Lil Wheezy, mumble rapping incomprehensibly about Lord knows what.

Oh man…
The irony of the midwit who never refrains from sharing his “hot take” on this little blog is now calling a multi-platinum selling artist worth hundreds of millions of GBP his “idiot of the day” for repackaging his profitable creation and making another few million pounds off it ….kekasaurus Rex!

I’m a huge Pink Floyd fan, but Roger Waters has turned out to be one the most bizarre humans walking the planet. Thinking he can improve on DSOTM is just more proof of that.

Waters is a nut burger. When he did, “The Final Cut”, you saw an angry man.

His mental illness may have led to creative genius, but a lifetime of therapy would not help him overcome his anger.

The remastering of DSotM?

Always liked PF, Gilmour and Waters, but Waters tries to fly too close to the sun.

I had no idea he was so based. I might have to pick this one up!
Thanks for the low-key recommendation, fellow traveler!

Was he the one in the mental institution? You have to be looney to write some of the things they did.

Waters is a Russian apologist. Boycott him.

D.L. Gardner's take on the new version of Dark Side Ff The Moon should be epic.

I refuse to spend another minute thinking about the art, history, politics or opinions of the Boomer generation. Their narcissistic wail has dominated every aspect of our lives for the last fifty years and, near as I can tell, they have made a huge mess of things. I say it is time that we rise up and cast off our oppressors (they are currently napping, so this is a good time), and be done with "the greatest music ever made, man." My first act as President would be banning all oldies stations and/or music before 1980 (except for East Bound and Down and that Brandy song). Anyone band caught playing Brown Eyed Girl or Mustang Sally would be put against the wall. The "peace" sign, which has made a disturbing resurgence among today's soft-headed youth on social media, would be the target of a fierce reeducation campaign to let them know that the sign was invented in the 60s by a former Nazi researcher at Dow Chemical, and it really means "there are only two sexes." I have lots of really great ideas but, what I'm saying is, NOW IS OUR TIME. Can we please just go back to arguing about Nirvana for 10 minutes? Gen X only had 5 minutes of its 15.

*The karaoke versions of Mustang Sally and Brown Eyed Girl could still be played, as long as they were sung ironically.

Always hated to see such a great group descend into such bitter acrimony. Dark Side of the Moon was truly great, as was The Wall-- Final Cut, meh. .

I did like the Gilmour/Mason/Wright version in the late 80's / 90's, at least it was less depressing/dark, but was not quite the same.

Too bad for Waters he is such a jerk by pretty much all accounts; Gilmour by most all accounts is the complete opposite.

I believe the appropriate trope is "Mustache on the Mona Lisa."

A lot of our local folk may not realize that Roger Waters has a lot of company in the world, particularly in Europe. I'm reminded of a comment by a friend, that Mississippi does have a strongly negative image, much of it deserved, but at least it keeps a lot of weirdos from moving here.

10:17, on behalf of the boomer generation, let me apologize for not abandoning the Stones, Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Van Morrison, and Pink Floyd to become fans of Michael Bolton, Flock of Seagulls, Boy George, and Justin Timberlake. If I were typing this from my parent’s basement, I might have been able to make that transition, but alas, I was persuaded to leave the nest and develop my own wings.

StarRider said...

If you gave any misgivings about the political leanings of Waters you weren't really listening to his lyrics. He's always been a radical leftist, but now he is unhinged as well.

10:17 and 7:30, I'm literally LMAO! Good jobs!

7:54 AM, it’s not just Waters.

It seems when God gives out the incredible talent required to make music like the music made by Pink Floyd, God says now OK, you’ve been given this incredible gift, and you don’t get something for nothing, so we’re taking all of the common sense portion of your brain in exchange.

If you want some really good proof to back the theory above, watch Wild, Wild Country on Netflix – and see just how idiotic the described “upscale intellectuals” that created movies like The Godfather, really are.

You will also get an idea of how the insanity that’s taken over the state of Oregon may have actually gotten its start.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
