Spinal Tap Quote Of The Day

"This tasteless cover is a good indication of the lack of musical invention within. The musical growth rate of this band cannot even be charted. They are treading water in a sea of retarded sexuality and bad poetry."

That's nitpicking, innit?

Oh, and BTW, that quote is straight from the old noodle. No IMDB quotes for The Colonel (at least when it comes to Spinal Tap).

Not only that, but The Colonel saw Spinal Tap in the THEATER when it came out. That's right. The Colonel's old man was cool as shit and took the Little Colonel to see a double feature of This Is Spinal Tap and Rock And Roll High School at the Varsity Theater on University Ave. in Palo Alto way back in the day.

Same place we saw Stop Making Sense and, yes, a midnight showing of the Rocky Horror Picture Show back when they did midnight showings of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Kind of a strange thing to take a kid to, but The Colonel is stoked he went. A little bit of cultural history that, alas, is no more.

But hey, enough of my yakkin'. Whaddya say? Let's boogie!
