Croon, Jamie Woon!

Ok, I’m probably hella tardy to the party on this guy, but I’m kinda officially an old person who has abandoned all hope for keeping up with the jams favored by youffs of today. But now and again I’ll pause my riot grrrl and Jodeci remix cassettes long enuf to hear some NEWNOWNEXT music that doesn’t make me scratch my chin and stamp my K-Swiss in confusion. Rather, it reminds me why I shouldn’t be one those annoying “I only listen to music from {random yesteryear decade}, back when music was GOOD. Pffft” type of people.

Seriously, was this written by a 9-year-old raised by Westboro Baptist and Jeff Dunham? What kind of drugs did they put in Sad Dachshund’s kibble to get him to go from an Academy Award to this? Is it weird to be equally offended and depressed that they topped it all off with an obnoxious cover of the Ramones?

Let’s organize a movement to ship Rob Schneider to some remote island where he can no longer be a threat to himself or anybody else with a shred of ethnic dignity. You go straight to hell, Schneider.
