Unless I wasn't looking at what I thought I was looking at, that first link is NSFW.

Unless I've got things completely backwards, the song linked here as Little Green Man and identified as such on the YouTube page, is actually Sunday Morning Fever.

That penis is neither green nor a little man.

"that first link is NSFW."

The day a penis with sunglasses is nsfw is the day I quit the internet!


Oh sorry Kattullus, the track in the first link is mislabeled. I forgot to mention that :)

That and they say "I'll see you in a Sunday Morning Fever" in the song.

Oh good lord that was awful. I've actually heard that before. My sister played it for me about 10 years ago, she is one of those tragically hip music snobs from New Yawk that thinks obscurity + rarity + unlistenability = fun. She was a music blogger and her sole pleasure in life was when she got people to like the most horrid music she could find and Italo Disco was her fad of the week. She'd try her latest "musical discovery" on me and I would absolutely not go for it at all. And then I'd remind her that when she was a teenager, she was into the Grateful Dead and played mandolin in a folk music group, which would drive her insane with fury.

This sort of music is the rubbish that made me into a punk rocker. It transports me back to a time when men with porn moustaches, perms, and polyester jumpsuits pranced around like ponces. Here's a little tune that I was listening to in 1978, by some people who had the same opinion of disco, Sunday Morning Nightmare by Sham 69.

That 'obscurity + rarity + unlistenability = fun' attitude is not exactly unheard-of in punk-rock fandom (or any kind of fandom, really).

Here's a Dam-Funk video.

Keytars? That Dam-Funk video just reminds me of a cleaned up version of Brokencyde.

I'm not someone who plays the fandom attitude. I like what I like, not because you don't like it. I don't attempt to trick people into liking it even though I don't, because that will make you hip like me. I'm sick of hipster ironic appreciation. What ever happened to real appreciation?

Aww c'mon charlie! Don't be such a penis with sunglasses.

Your sister sounds like an intelligent woman with discerning and elevated musical taste. Is she cute?


"when men with porn moustaches, perms, and polyester jumpsuits pranced around like ponces."

Well if you are going to start knocking my hobbies then :P to you.


ps - I piss on your Sham 69.

Is she cute?

No, not by even the most generous standard. You wouldn't like her. She already hates you, and she's never met you.
