ROFL – Be careful what you wish for

Hi all, Az here again.

So, you may have seen yesterday’s post – Fifty Shades of BC Rich – an homage to my well documented love of BC Rich guitars.

For shits and giggles, I thought I’d post that photo into a Facebook Group called BC Rich Junkies as I’m sure they would have particularly got a good chuckle out of it.

Well.

Not only did they re-share it a hell of a lot on their own timelines but it spawned a great big conversation. Starting innocently enough about where the photo of all those guitars came from (they figured out it can ultimately be traced back to this guy’s shop – Ed Roman is his name), it turned into a big debate about how Ed Roman’s name is a swear word in that Facebook Group and all these rants about how he allegedly makes counterfeit guitars. Well, as you can imagine, I want nothing to do with a conversation like that.

*shrug* Some people just can’t take a joke and move on I guess.

Not meaning to be political or anything – but if you’re going to have an orange guy running your country, you would think that you would learn to not take yourself so seriously, right?

Ba ba ba da ba baaaaaa.

Another week in the books.

For this week’s trip down memory lane, I chose the film clip for Everclear‘s “Everything To Everyone”.

I love this film clip. It’s simple looking enough but it obviously would have involved a lot of stop-motion capturing and the like but they managed to maintain the energy of the song throughout the clip.

Also, I’m sure it’s not only me who feels like watching Everclear get into the song whilst playing actually makes the song feel more fun? That old lineup had a great presence about them.

As a bonus clip – remember that time Everclear had a song on the Romeo + Juliet soundtrack from the movie of the same name? We’re talking 1996 here. The greatest love story of all, performed by two lead actors who absolutely hated each other.

Well, here’s a clip of Everclear playing that song live at Woodstock, with lead singer Art being preoccupied on stage and staring at the boobs of girls half his age. All class.
