Have a look at the Joker

Currently under the radar is Suicide Squad, the “third” movie in the new DC Movie Universe (after Man Of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of the Justice League).

This take on the Joker has some nerds in a huf, but the same nerds were probably in a huf about Heath Ledger’s take on Joker and how’d that work out? I’ll wait for the movie.

Suicide Squad is scheduled to be released on August 5, 2016.
Personally, I’m much more excited about Suicide Squad than Batman v Superman.

The GREATEST SONG EVER™ – “Rock ‘n’ Roll” – Velvet Underground

Every time I put on the radio,
You know there’s nothin’ goin’ down at all,
Not at all
But one fine mornin’ she hears a New York station
She doesn’t believe what she heard at all
Hey, not at all
She started dancin’ to that fine fine music
You know her life was saved by rock ‘n’ roll

I could fill this list up with Velvet Underground and Lou Reed songs. And maybe I will. And maybe it seems unlike me to list the most well-known and popular VU song. Oh, well.
It’s the GREATEST SONG EVER™.

Also, I can’t get into right now, as it’d take a long essay, but the live version Lou Reed does on “Rock ‘n’ Roll Animal” is also the GREATEST SONG EVER™. It took me years to understand it. But now I do.

Listen to the entire (and ever evolving) GREATEST SONG EVER* playlist:

A quick note about these tunes. I’m making my list as the tunes come to me… I’m not sitting here, pen in hand, going … “uh, ‘Satellite of Love’ number 82… and ‘Trouble’ number 36… ‘Body Language’ number 4… blah blah blah… when I hear or am reminded of THE GREATEST SONG EVER™, that’s when I know.

*because I say so.

THE GREATEST SONG EVER™ – Flipper “Ha Ha Ha”

When I was a teenager I ran into this kid from my elementary school at the METROPLEX. The ‘Plex was the local punk rock club. Anyway – we chatted and she was trying to start a punk band with some other dude.
I played the drums and they needed a drummer. So we formed a band.
What’s interesting is that the girl, I can’t remember her real name, but her punk rock name was “Tommy Gun“, never really came to many of the practices. She was the instigator of the band and the bridge between me and this other dude. (Who played bass.) But she hardly ever showed.
So what happened was we ended up having a lot of rhythm section jams; endless loops of Black Flag‘s version of “Louie Louie” and a lot of discussion over band names.
A lot of MTV watching and Jello Pudding Pop eating.
And ultimatly that was the main motivation to be in this “band”. My family didn’t have cable and we especially didn’t have a steady supply of Jello Pudding Pops. So, “Louie Louie” here we go!

But, he did have some good records. One of which was the FLIPPER “Ha Ha Ha” 45 single.

It’s the GREATEST SONG EVER™.

A quick note about these tunes. I’m making my list as the tunes come to me… I’m not sitting here, pen in hand, going … “uh, ‘My War’ number 67… and ‘Shake It Off’ number 33… ‘Clash City Rokcers’ number 17… blah blah blah… when I hear or am reminded of THE GREATEST SONG EVER™, that’s when I know.

SIDE NOTE – I can’t recall if we ever agreed on a name. He liked “Cold Distance”, a lyric taken from “All Along The Watchtower”. I wasn’t really into Jimi Hendrix or Bob Dylan yet, so it meant nothing to me.
I had come up with “Megapolis Zoo” from the Tennessee Tuxedo and His Tales cartoon! I don’t remember if we agreed on this name or if I simply declared it, or if it was band I started later, but I painted a picture of Tennessee Tuxedo and “Zoo” (for Megapolis Zoo) on the back of my “punker” jacket.
