What a week, ladies and gentlemen! Didn’t we have fun, with the banks and the bailouts and whatnot?
And now it’s Friday . . . time to unwind . . . and enjoy:
Welcome to the second installment of an internet legend!
This week’s FRIDAY FACE-OFF is: “The Suffering” by Coheed and Cambria. Watch the original version here:
When I first saw this video on “Headbangers Ball,” I was like, “Ho-hum, kind of catchy, nothing special.” Then something happened. Something called 0:39. Then you could say my interest spiked. Then you could say this became my favorite jam of the year. Then you could say it was literally the first song I ever bought on the Apple Music Store. Then you could say I listened to it about fifty times in a row every day.
Also, can I just say? 0:47 - 0:49? When he sings, “The web you spun,” does he pronounce “spun” very tough? “Spahn.” That must be how they pronounced it in mythical times.
LET’S ALL GET OBSESSED WITH “THE SUFFERING” BY COHEED AND CAMBRIA!!!
Check back later this morning for our first contestant. . .
FRIDAY FACE-OFFS! WE DON’T TAKE TIME-OUTS!!!
