Short Led, Short Plant and Short Age

by Johnny Debacle

From an MTV article headlined Robert Plant And Alison Krauss Win Grammy Album Of The Year:

“I’m bewildered,” Robert Plant said onstage as he accepted the Grammy Album of the Year award with Alison Krauss on Sunday night. “In the old days we would have called this selling out, but it’s a good way to spend a Sunday.”

And so are we, and so did we. I wouldn’t buy any stock in the Grammy’s as a guide towards good culture, but the fact that this man, won one NOW, has had us writing calls all morning on Robert Plant, on Age and on the base metal, Led Zeppelin. This is like a musical 9/11 with this having been transformed by a easy listening aural rape into this.

Recommendation: Baby boomers, please go away, lest you ruin even more of the world with your insipid gerriatric tastes, your wanton spending, your unfettered sense of entitlement and your inability to understand the difference between The Google and The Internet (hint: Sergei Brin and Larry Page invented one, Al Gore invented the other (along with Global Warming)).

    Ugh, Robert – you should have died a ledgend long before you made that “prett birds” motion with your fingers.

    Would also add that the boomers are going to get all The Social Security, The Medicare, and The Bail Out to extend their increasingly annoying, unhealthy and well funded lives by an additional 40 years on the back of Gen X and Gen Y paying interest on the national debt until we are consumed by cephalopods.

    At least PIMCO is available to help…

    Net: the damage is done and it probably won’t be until they die off (not just retire) that we will be able to start the real work of undoing what they will have done.
    This stimulus package with it’s 90/10 split between social programs/ economic programs is classic hippy gen problem solving. Given they are now in charge and stampeding their way into writing all the social programs they dreamed up on shrooms and acid into law even if they sooner rather than later the problems they will have caused will last much longer. They are more interested in self congratulatory museums than the hard work needed to solve problems.

    Good God. I’m getting the impression from all the doom & gloom around here that you must be a bunch of bond traders or something. Let’s see…

    1) Realistic view of the world – precludes any of you being involved in derivatives markets based on future value of sparkly colored Unicorn turds and pots of precious metals at the Southern terminus of rainbows. Can’t play in that world unless you see the world the way the Dennis Hopper character in Blue Velvet did after his fifth or sixth hit of Nitrous. Mommy mommy mommy mommmmy.

    2) Inherently mildly conservative in outlook – probably no Manhattan real estate speculators or foreign currency traders.

    3) Not megalomaniacal or unrepentantly insane, so none of you is George Soros.

    4) Talking as if your world is going to end soon – which it will as soon as Congress passes TARP II in a couple weeks, floating another trillion in debt causing the rest of the world to realize that as far as paper goes, Charmin has more inherent value than US Govt Bonds.

    BTW, saying bad things about tax and spending hikes is unpatriotic. So you probably better watch it.

    @ Pleb

    Who are you calling non-insane and non-megalomanical, huh?

    I take extreme offense to that statement, sir!
