Monster Ballads - You know you love it

Let's all admit it people. When the commercial for Monster Ballads comes on, there is a part of you that goes, "Fuckin' Yeah." Monster Ballads rule. I believe that when history looks back on music compilation CD's that Monster Ballads will be known as the best CD ever to be printed. It is the Citizen Kane of CD compilations. The Mona Lisa. The sliced bread. The Double Stuffed Oreo that’s also covered in chocolate of music.

So you’re asking yourself, why is this CD so good? Why could it possible by be the resurrection of Christ in CD form. I’ll tell you why, at least for me. People it deals with the internal paradox that is living within me. Everybody knows that there are two parts of me.

Part 1: The God Damn Butt Kickin’ Party Dude
If you know me, you know I love to party. Party Harty Marty, I always say to Marty. Much like Poison I enjoy Nothin’ But A Good Time or like Warrant, I enjoy Cherry Pie.

Part 2: Sensitive Ass Mother F’er
I admit it. Sometimes I just gotta cry. Gotta get it out. I gotta know, Is This Love. I need to understand it in More Than Words. I guess I just need Something to Believe In.

You see, if these hardcore rockers can take it down a notch, then so can I. I can still be the guy who isn’t afraid to cut a guy for looking at me the wrong way, and then cry a tear because my lady doesn’t understand me.

Thank you Monster Ballads for telling me that it’s okay.

Why Did It Take So Long?

What is the most amazing invention of the last 50 years? The Internet? Cell Phones? NO! Come on people, it's the chocolate fountain. My only question is, what took so long? It's a river of amazing chocolate, perfect for you dip things in it.

It seems to me that something like this should have been invented before the cell phone. It was easier. It in many ways makes people happier. I remember the first time I saw one. It was at the wedding of a good friend of mine. People looked at it as though it held the cure for cancer and all they needed to do was place a strawberry on a stick and dip it in, and all of their problems would be solved. And in a small way they were. People who are happy live longer. So I think the fountain is a cure for some stuff.

Sure you may say that the fountain is also a cause of being fat. Okay, yes. But isn't that why we invented the internet and the cell phone? So we wouldn't have to move....Ever!
