Slow Adventures in Slothville

Guilty Friday

Filed under: Celebrity Whoredom, Penny, Slothyness — shhville @ 2:44 pm


Last night I went on a GUILTY PLEASURES iTunes shopping spree and bought “…Baby One More Time” and “Oops!…I Did It Again” by Britney, “Bye Bye Bye” by NSYNC, “I Want It That Way” by Backstreet Boys and “Genie In A Bottle” by Christina Aguilara.

I remain unashamed!!

But then iTunes was all, “Here are your recommendations – based on your purchase history, you will LOVE the Spice Girls! And Mandy Moore! And Hanson!” I was so offended, all “Fuck you iTunes! I’m NOT LIKE THAT! I’m COOL!”

Today I’m thinking of going after some old hairband goodies like “When the Children Cry” by White Lion, “Once Bitten, Twice Shy” by Great White and “She’s Only Seventeen” by Winger and “Cherry Pie” by Warrant. Hey, was W a popular glamrock letter in the early 90’s or what?

I’ve already stocked up on Journey’s greatest hits, Huey Lewis and the News, Pat Benetar, Genesis, Skid Row, Guns N’ Roses, Def Leppard, etc. It’s down to one-hit wonders now. Any suggestions?

Finally, Defamer brought my attention to this awesome Top Ten list of Japanese commercials featuring American celebrities. They will make you shudder with shame until you remember that Michael J. Fox made 50 bajillion dollars to clip hedges in a faggy hat and get chased around by a fat lady. Fuck it, I’d do for 5 bajillion dollars, easy.

Have a prosh weekend!



  1. Sorry, Slothy, if while you may have not shame, there’s nothing cool about Brittney or N’Sync once you get past the age of 13. You gotta expect the cheesy iTunes recommendations.

    As for new music, I alwasy suggest Queen. I might also suggest Tesla, for some laughs, Green Jello’s Cereal Killer album, UFO always rocks, AC/DC, Joan Jett, the Go-Go’s, Jane Weidlan, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest.

    I could go on, but that’s a pretty good list. Oh, and don’t forget Black Sabbath/Ozzy.

  2. JOAN JETT HOLY CRAP! I forgot all about her!

    Thanks Vince – of course YOU would have the most comprehensive answer imaginable.

  3. Man, I loved Green Jello’s Cereal Killer album, even if they did later change their name to Green Jelly to avoid copyright infringement lawsuits.

    And I think I’m guilty for a lot of that hairband music, aren’t I? I would like to add Skid Row to the list and further Vince’s suggestions: Ozzy’s “Mama I’m Coming Home” and “No More Tears” are awesome, as is Tesla’s whole “Great Radio Controversy” album. (You’ll remember “Love Song” as soon as you hear it. Oh, also? Metallica’s Black album. You know, the one with “Enter Sandman.”

  5. Awww, I love Penny!!! I would add “Tainted Love” by Soft Cell and definitely some Judas Priest, Ozzy, Metallica, and just for kicks, KC and the Sunshine Band.

  6. Devo. No music collection is complete without it. Also – Bowie. All of it. Everything he ever did, even the duet with Bing Crosby…

    Penny never ceases to bring the cute!
