Category: Stupid Ideas I Haven’t Done

Like everyone, I tend to come up with a lot of ideas that I never get around to doing. Sometimes it’s out of laziness, sometimes it’s just because I can’t figure out how to make it work, and sometimes, it’s just because they’re pretty stupid ideas.  So, in order to do something with them, I’m throwing them out here.  If anyone wants to make these stupid ideas a reality, more power to you — maybe give a hat-tip to Kittysneezes, why don’t you?

Stupid Ideas I Haven’t Done: DEVO Cats

Like everyone, I tend to come up with a lot of ideas that I never get around to doing. Sometimes, it’s because they’re pretty stupid ideas. So, in order to do something with them, I’m throwing them out here. If anyone wants to make these stupid ideas a reality, go for it!

Stupid Idea:  You know those Christmas records where they do Christmas records with dog barks or cat meows?  Usually they’re credited to the Jingle Dogs or the Jingle Cats?  And the early one was done with actual tape splicing and stuff where they have the actual dog barks and noises that are in the actual right notes, so that’s kinda cool, but they’ve done more recent ones where it’s just a sampling keyboard, so it’s kind of cheating?  But even though it’s sorta neat from a technical aspect, it’s still pretty damned annoying anyway?

Stupid Ideas I Haven’t Done: Dancin’ Danzig

Like everyone, I tend to come up with a lot of ideas that I never get around to doing. Sometimes, it’s because they’re pretty stupid ideas. So, in order to do something with them, I’m throwing them out here. If anyone wants to make these stupid ideas a reality, go for it!

Stupid Idea:  So, whenever I hear a song title that has the word “Dancin'” or “Dancing” in it, I always mentally replace it as “Danzig”.  You know, Glenn Danzig, the lead singer of the Misfits.  And Samhain.  And Danzig.  And generally humorless metal guy.  Apparently I’m not the only one, as Ken Stringfellow of the Posies‘ upcoming solo record is called Danzig in the Moonlight, so this isn’t a terribly original idea.

Stupid Idea: Shaving “KEVIN” on the backs of the gorillas; one letter per gorilla. (They would have to be either very docile or drugged gorillas, though.)

Stupid Ideas I Haven’t Done: Wasted Opportunities

Like everyone, I tend to come up with a lot of ideas that I never get around to doing. Sometimes out of laziness, sometimes  because I can’t figure out how to make it work, and sometimes, it’s just because they’re pretty stupid ideas.  If anyone wants to make these stupid ideas a reality, more power to you — maybe give a hat-tip to Kittysneezes, why don’t you?

Stupid Idea: An interview series called “Wasted Opportunities”.  The idea would be to interview HUGE gets, big-name artists, like, say David Bowie or Paul McCartney — people who would actually be quite a bit of a coup — and ask them nothing but stupid, irrelevant questions.

Stupid Ideas I Haven’t Done: Morrissey/Sparks Interview

Like everyone, I tend to come up with a lot of ideas that I never get around to doing. Sometimes, it’s because they’re pretty stupid ideas.  So, in order to do something with them, I’m throwing them out here.  If anyone wants to make these stupid ideas a reality, go for it!

Stupid Idea: Interviewing Morrissey solely about Sparks — nothing about the Smiths or Morrissey’s solo career.  See, before Morrissey was, well, MORRISSEY, he was head of the Sparks fan club.  And he’s still a big fan of them.  And, well, I’m a big Sparks fan too — much, much more so than I am a Morrissey fan.  Besides, from everything I’ve heard, Morrissey’s a total pill, and I think doing an interview with Morrissey The Former Head Of The Sparks Fan Club would be way funnier than doing an interview with Morrissey The Guy From The Smiths And Now Does A Lot Of Solo Stuff.

Stupid Idea: Strapping on my electric guitar and wearing a small amplifier like a backpack, going to the Seattle Center, and play nothing but rock-era Brian Eno songs.
