I feel worse for sitting through the first minute and a half. What freaky train wreck quility did that have that compelled me not to hit the back button?

I was hoping that it would be Miss Piggy's voice. Personally, I'm more atttracted to Kermit singing Hurt.

Pope Guilty: Yes.

I've seen this before, and I have a feeling it was via the YouTube Related Videos thingy on the video in that post. Or possibly this one.

I said this about the Kermit "Hurt" thing, but it bears repeating:

I really really hate it when people take something innocent from my childhood and pervert it, or destroy it. Please stop doing that.

Sure thing, splatta. As soon as I post this song with the Count.

There was never anything innocent about the muppets.

How is this any better than the other thirty thousand "Muppets singing modern songs" videos on YouTube?

Solon and Thanks: Awesome.

The Peaches thing, though, while I see the appeal of her act, I never got into her music. It always struck me as somehow boring and lacking soul, despite its rage and sexuality. It's perfect hipster fodder, purposefully irrelevant and overly self-conscious.

When Animal went on his incredible cymbal-riding solos, my day was made. Awesome.

I would have loved this in 2002 and evangelically posted it to every corner of the internet.

These days, its a bit meh and pretty weak for ze Bleu.

Just like any arch critical analysis or deconstruction of Peaches.

dreadful... the music, the "editing" job of the video, just all around dreadful

I caught the end of Peaches set when I saw NIN a year or two ago, she was on before Bauhaus, so she was the opening act for the opening act. Never before have I felt more embarrassed for a performer. She strips down to her bra and panties and runs into the half empty grand stand while "singing". I can't think of a time when I thought "shit, I hope this half naked woman doesn't come near me" until this moment occurred.

And in related news, David Duchovny will be playing The Count in the upcoming Sesame Stree Movie...
posted by darkstar at 1:59 PM on October 1, 2008


inthe80s, I saw the same tour. I didn't feel she came off very well in an outdoor arena three hours before sunset. But she does join a short list of women who can pull off a duet with Iggy Pop.

I thought this was pretty good for a class project, not so sure if it's that much better than many other mash-ups. I did think it was fantastic that he got the Disney logo in there.

You know I never realized until now how I bought into the stigmatizing of Miss Piggy when I was younger. Now that I am older and wiser I can't help but think she has got something. That sort of big bold brassiness of a woman who that knows she is more than just the sum of bountiful stuffing. Her appetites, rather than being mocked, deserve respect. She attacks life with a knife and fork and makes a meal of it. She decides what she wants and pursues it.

Kermit was a fool.

I'm not in pain, but I'm definitely gonna go do some fucking.

This is just a gimmicky use of editing software.

Kermit covering "Hurt", however, was pure awesome wide a side order of awesome.

I always suspected Miss Piggy was a freak. And the band, well, just look at them. Had to be more fine herb on that tour bus than Willy Nelson's.

The funny thing is, Peaches has actually never had sex.

I thought the boring, soulless sexual rage WAS her act?

I have so many issues that I actually watched that whole thing and sent it to two friends!

I've never really gotten into it, and then I realised why: it's not really any more appealing to me than some guy rapping about how bick his cock is and how many botches he's had. I mean, I guess it's kind of liberating and stuff that she's a woman who feels free to do the equivalent, but it's not really any more enjoyable for me.

I thought Peaches was clearly tongue in cheek as she uses the line 'Check out my behind, it's fine all of the time', which is visibly incorrect.

Cibelle is a young lady who is more talented, more tunefull, crazier and has a fine behind all of the time. She is also fantastic fun to see live. Distorted sound on the clip, but you get the idea.

I had been heretofore unfamiliar with Peaches and her "teaches". When I see you in hell, I'll be popping you in the lip for getting this damned song stuck in my head as well as the enigmatic Peaches herself.
