Bad music, Good athletes

So. I’m back at school and back on the internet (for a moment) and in my inbox there is this. And it is wonderful.

It always frustrates me when people establish themselves as one thing, then suddenly decide that entitles them to a huge following in another arena. I’m not so much mad at these athletes…because…it’s too hilarious. But actors turned musicians, or worse, musicians turned actor; athletes turned actor are almost always going to disappoint, and I always feel a little weird about actors becoming major political figures. I mean, I guess it worked for Reagan, but…

But then I suppose I can’t begrudge anyone the attempt to cross over into other paths, because sometimes, it’s far too priceless.

    I’m ok with everything up to Muhammed Ali, cuz you probly don’t need any musical talent to rap, but really…”Who rode the ride of Paul Revere? ALI!!!!”

    That just isn’t right.

    OK.
    Chinese food – Good. Chinese music – Bad.
    Mexican food – Good. Mexican music – Bad.
    Irish food – Bad. Irish music – Good.
    Japanese food – Good. Japanese music – Baaaad!
    German food – Bad. German music – uh . . .
    American food – pretty much nonexistent. American music – pretty good.

    I have a theory that a culture can produce either good food or good music, but not both. Think about it.

    Well, didn’t Americans create baby-back ribs?
