Worst Beatles song.... I have to agree, nothing is as useless as that thing called Revolution #9. There are a few others on the same album that aren't really worthy of them. Not to say the "white album" is bad - it has several great songs on it - but, there are a few tracks on there that should have been cut.

Now... worst Zeppelin song: many might say "Hat's Off...", but I disagree. I really never cared for Houses of the Holy (the title track of the GREAT 5th album which curiously is not on the HotH album, but is found on the 6th album, Physical Grafiti, which is also great, this one song notwithstanding.)

Ha!! Indeed, those two songs are very silly. something slightly humorous about Hot Dog lyrically. Funnily, they actually played that one live at Knebworth.

Worst lie fed to us: that we are 'free'



Jessica your photos are stunning!
Steven Segal eh? I actually have a true Steven Segal story. Last May he was one of the judges in a contest that I won, when his 'Simon Cowell' moment came, his remark was, "Man, she can sing in my band anytime!" no word of a lie, here is a link. http://www.shawnlam.ca/jackfm/

10) worst kids toy: the Playmobil "Security Checkpoint" play set, or their "Safe Crackers (Thieves)" set (that's pretty much a tie).

9) Best customer reviews to read for a serious laugh: Amazon.com reviews for said toys.

8)Worst Jamaican accent: Brad Pitt in "Meet Joe Black".

7)Best/worst movie: "Meet Joe Black".

6) worst career move: 5 words- Cuba Gooding Jr. Snow Dogs.

5)Worst look: Carrot Top, hands down.

4)Worst "fashion statement": visible thongs.

3)Worst garment: Jeans with built in visible DENIM THONG. I'm serious, those exist. I'm sorry to have had to tell you that...

2)worst song ever: "Cotton Eye Joe" by REDNEX.
to quote Blender-"just what the world needed: a Swedish techno-bluegrass cover"...

1) worst movie prop: Fat suits. specifically: Eddie Murphy in a fat suit. Leave it alone man! take off the suit- step away from the suit. How many times do we have to endure you sporting a fat suit and making farting jokes? seriously. Just be funny again. Hugh Grant got caught with a hooker too, you don't see him paying penance with seemingly endless years of lowball, mediocre "comedy".

We play street hockey around the Cadboro Bay/Gordon Head area (we're in Victoria, BC). We play rugby, too, usually just two handed touch since we have little kids playing. If you want to join us, drop me an email at tcrbachman@gmail.com.

The only thing good that came out of Revolution #9 was an easy pick for the Beatles Rock Band release, which we have already preordered. Haha.
