"I'm Embarrassed!"

 What happens when a Shrekkie runs into Led Zeppelin? 

Ouch!.  If you want to see a grown-up's review of the song, check out The Charismatic Voice

It's amazing how people can embarrass themselves and yet think they are somehow contributing something to society.

Bought this 8-track at Morrison Brothers Music in Cleveland, played it in my after-market 8-track player mounted under the dash next to my FM converter. Good times except for the hideous clothing we wore back then.

Dear fuck I hope we survive the "influencer" age. Whole self-serving generation of shit for brains.

Interesting post Kingfish.... the Zep video captures the power of their presence back in the day when they ruled above all when they played live.

But, sorry - but the two lady commentators are great examples of how the younger generations can't possibly grasp the gravity of things in "history". Their blatantly obvious self-importance with having their own vapid video cast to watch/hear themselves is so shallow and meaningless. They really have no idea the lack of soul and creativity their generation has, but which is showcased through - technology - which without, most of them would be what they fear the most - being average nobodies at best.

"Ok, Boomer".....3...2...1....

Geez, so younger people don't know songs that came out before they, and in some cases their parents, were born. And when Zep was brand new, a lot of their fans didn't know much about their parents' or grandparents' music. And few today of any age have 17th and 18th century music on whatever player they use to listen to music. And many of those who were rocking to Plant and crew when they were new don't know much about current songs. It doesn't make any of it "bad," "good," or anything else. I really don't mind nice kids playing on my lawn and I don't tell others what they should or should not allow on their lawn. Mainly because my lawn is MY fucking lawn and their lawn is THEIR fucking lawn. I'm pretty sure that - both with music and lawns - is the way things ought to be (with not a single apology to Rush Limbaugh).

Au contraire`, Wally. I was looking groovy in my mint-green leisure suit at the Lamar.

Elizabeth Zharoff is a metal and classic rock enthusiast. Also a pretty good opera singer. Heaven forbid she should like the older stuff and discuss. Nice to see one of our crotches show up. Would probably gripe about Cindy Crawford having a mole on the back of her thigh if he had a chance with her.

Did not watch, or cannot watch, because, one, Led Zeppelin is a sky high steaming pile of overrated cow flop — oh, I know, they sold millions and had to be the greatest because all of you old crotches had your copies you wore out — and, two, because, Great God Almighty in His heaven above eating cat head biscuits and tomato gravy, who cares how some kid “reacts” to anything?

Your friend,

“ Nice to see one of our crotches show up.”, they can't help it, Mr. Fish. They are unhappy with themselves, and can't be happy with anything else. The high point of their day is to ruin someone else's happiness.

Everybody’s different. I love some Zeppelin.

Got paired up in a golf tournament with a guy in his late 20’s or so. (I’m in my late 30’s.) He asked if we could play some music on the Bluetooth I brought. I said sure and turned on my go to Spotify playlist not thinking about it. After listening to some Pearl Jam, Counting Crows, George Strait, and Eagles songs, this same Zep song came on (Immigrant song). He looked me dead in the eye and ask me to “turn off this devil music”. I chuckled until I realized he was serious. I turned it off. A few holes later he said, “man, I wasn’t trying to be rude. That music is just too hardcore for me. I can’t do metal.” I couldn’t do anything but politely smile. Zeppelin is not metal. This guy would absolutely soil himself if I turned on him some “metal”. I learned that day that not everyone has taste. Especially in music. I’m sure he’s a Morgan Wallen fan. 😂

For the sake of inclusion, the Dread Zeppelin version of this song should be included with the videos above.

Damn, KF, looks like you need to post some Millie Vanilli and Flock of Seagulls for AOC/10:12

I'm not sure why that comment brought it to mind, but I remember the first time I heard "Ca Plane Pour Moi" used in a commercial and thinking/saying that I was pretty sure no one involved did quite enough research on that. For those that were not at least teenagers in the mid-70s or don't know the song by name (which is probably 99.9% of those who will read this regardless of age), Google up the history of the song and its inspiration, "Jet Boy Jet Girl." If you can find it, check out the video of the original version by Elton Motel. And then, be amused if you hear it used on some TV commercial for, well, nearly everything that is advertised on TV.

Uh huh. I think you'd be surprised how many younglings listen to LZ.

They were playing LZ in Kroger the other day.

"They were playing LZ in Kroger the other day."

That was a Depends commercial. Wait, no. Depends is Guns-N-Roses, Metamucil is Zep, and AARP is the Stones.

But the younger folks haven't been left out. Hefty has the Kardashians, KC Masterpiece is Taylor Swift, and in a real coup, Stanley Tools managed to score the Biden and Trump spawn along with 147 other pols' kids from around the globe (a full set in SAE and metric doncha know).

You know it's on when you're at church and the Praise Band does Wang Dang Sweet Poontang and people are sing along and all praising and running the aisles.

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.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
