Inspired by Jack Black

Last night me and Mrs. Shife watched a movie to pull me out of my football depression (yes the Cardinals lost again) and we chose "High Fidelity." It is a great movie and I love John Cusack but Jack Black steals the show. So my inspiration comes from the last scene in the movie when he performs on stage with his band and he says the name of the band. The group went from Sonic Death Monkey to Kathleen Turner Overdrive to finally Barry Jive and the Uptown Five. So if you had a band what would your name be?
And how many times has John Cusack been out in a pouring rain storm during one of his movies? Think about it.

Finally, my favorite show returns tonight, "Arrested Development."

Narrator: In an effort to "hip" up his act, GoBb had briefly introduced a puppet.
[Gob is acting as a black puppet named Franklin in front of the family]
Gob: [as Franklin] Can I tell you something, my man?
Gob: [as himself] Sure, Franklin.
Gob: [as Franklin] You are one cool [bleep]
Gob: [as Franklin] Speaking of mothers, let me give that oatmeal some brown sugar. [the puppet "kisses" Lucille]
George Sr.: Get off my wife, you bastard! [strangles Franklin]
Gob: [as Franklin] What's the matter with you?
Gob: [as himself] Franklin said some things Whitey wasn't ready to hear.
Michael: G.O.B, weren't you also mercilessly beaten outside of a club in Torrance for that act? Gob: He also said some things that African-American-y wasn't ready to hear either.

I forget to list my band name. I have a couple of ideas but I think I would pick Manchowder.

I might be dating myself, but I gotta go with "Gene Rayburn's Mic"

I love Arrested Development! During the first season, I wasn't sure that many folks would catch on to it. Thankfully, there are plenty more warped people like us that get it...

I often daydream about being serenaded by Jack Black in a Chicago dive bar. I think for the right band (probably not one including Jack Black), a great name would be "Cumquatly."

My band would have to be "The Pot of Gold at the End of the Homo Rainbow." Best name ever.

I can't take credit for this one but mine would be "The Band Formerly Known As Sausage". I'd try to recruit Jack Black but I think he is happy being in the greatest band of all time, tenacious d.

Dude, BlackJack's cover of "Let's Get It On" was awesome! Pre Tenacious D, not many people knew the guy could sing. Now, well, not many people know the guy can sing. Bring on the Tenacious D and the Pick of Destiny!

Thanks for posting. The season premiere was fantastic.

I think Jack Black could pretty much steal the show in most movies. The guy is a trip!

I was in a punk meets hair metal band in Miami in the late 80's and our band name was Victorian Mutants. We actually were one of the first bands in the "Oxymoronish" trend of band names in S. Florida, one which would later produce a band(and singer) named Marilyn Manson.

Arrested Development is the funniest show on t.v period. It's the funniest show any station has had in a long time. I'm glad they brought it back.

For my current progressive rock project, I call myself "One With The Computer". For my upcoming comedy rock project, I will be calling myself "Stinkhole Messiah". (Nobody better steal that, it's already trademarked!) If I had an actual progressive rock band together with real people in it, I would probably suggest the name "Capricciotomy". A "capriccio" is defined as an instrumental piece in free form, usually lively in tempo and brilliant in style, which would make perfect sense considering the type of music I would like to be playing.

Here are several names for bands that no one to the best of my knowledge has used yet that I think would be a riot: UrAnus, Piss Christ, Matchbooks 4 Retards, The Pimples, 2000 Flushes, Turd Kebob, Your Brain On Drugs, Stinky And The Brown Bananas, Porcelain Mountian Lake Hillbillies, The Mongolian Gerbil Wrestlers, Assi 9, Who Farted?, Scrotum, Army Of Zero, DePlane D. Plane (featuring the former members of Tatu), Just Ignore Us, Broken Water, Dildos For Delilah, Old Mister Shifty Eye, Jizz KaBoom, Vertical Smile, Smells Like Fish, The Neigh Sayers, The Stupid, Hung Like Horses, I Saw Grandma Naked, Club Seal Sandwich, Reusable Box, Ten Bucks For Anal, The Artist Formerly Known As Dumbass, and finally...Stool.

Come to think of it, we really need a band called "Crap". No one could ever criticise them. "Man, this band is Crap!" Yep, that's what they're called. Opinion amongst those who listen to them would be divided...some would think that Crap's crap is the shit, and the other half would think that Crap's shit is crap! :)

Okay, enough of that crap!

Keep bloggin' 'way!

I've been in a few bands and almost bands over the years. "Sepsis" was my high school metal band, and then had a project with a former friend that went by the names, "November Whiskey", "Drowning Julie", and a couple of other names I can't remember.
