Got a call from my friend yesterday
"Hey man, wanna go to this music festival in Tinley Park, it's $25"
"Eh, I'm trying to save my money and they'll rape me with the cost of beer, what's playing"
"Don't worry bout the ticket, It's gonna just be some live music, the sun, some folk stuff"
Mother f***er tricked me into going to Country Thunder. While there was an extraordinary # of good looking women dressed in daisy dukes and letting their boobs hang out (who also all raised their hands when asked if there were any believers in the audience) The dudes were all absolutely hideous. Quite a conundrum. Also, I was doing fairly well when the sun was out, and we had some alcohol and I could just relax, but when the sun went down and I was forced to listen to the final act exclusively, Montgomery Gentry. And I can say, I understand most every other music and why it can appeal to people even if I don't like it...except for country. I really have no f***ing clue the difference between each individual song, why everyone sings in the same voice, and how the f*** it can be enjoyable to just talk about honky tonking and your truck. It was f***ing painful. Especially losing a saturday night to that.
Amen. The only decent country is old country, Cash, Nelson, Williams Sr.... etc.
'New'counrty is very much like hip hop... in it's pointless bragging.
