The [Ninja Turtles] henchmen Bebop and Rocksteady have hijacked the musical genres for us just like the Lone Ranger hijacked the William Tell Overture for our parents.

The Avocado Strikes Back ...

I just thought I'd post a quick entry here because I picked up the new Pearl Jam CD yesterday. It's not too often that I pick CD's up on the day they come out. Pretty much the only bands I do that with are Audioslave and ... well not really anyone else.

After hearing Worldwide Suicide on the radio for the past month, and a couple of the other tracks over the weekend, I figured I should pick up this CD.

I have to say that after less than 24 hours that I'm still enjoying it a lot. I haven't listened to much of what they've done lately but this CD is definitely an interesting step I think.

fulsome is a big fan I know so I'll let him post his thoughts in the comments (or respond in this or subsequent posts), if he's picked up the CD.

BTW, it's only $10 at Best Buy or Circuit City.

I am waiting for the prequel, Revenge of the Advocado.

Incidentally, advocadoes pretty much always strike back about 12 hours later in the form of gaseous eruptions.

No chuckles avocados are only justifiably reacting to Western Imperialism; I've never had that problem with them.

I am glad that teh is a gentleman on here, unlike a certain other poster.

DEN, how does it compare to their first album?

I am enjoying that problem with them today. I walk into my bosses office to ask him some questions/keep him updated, then I blow ass and leave. It is awesome.

AG, I'd say it's probably not as good as the first two albums ... although I don't listen to either of those too much anymore.

I certainly enjoy it more than anything from Vitalogy forward though ...
