Skip to comments.The Lingering Stench of the Black Eyed Peas
Posted on 02/10/2011 8:41:23 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
So the Super Bowl came and went like a fat, sweaty, overbearing relative and it left a stench in the bathroom that can only be described as the Black Eyed Peas.
Yes once again we are suffocated by the American assumption that what is lapped up by teenage girls is also lapped up by everyone else over fourteen.
This scares the Bieber out of me.
Because its true. We are what we eat. And last night we ate a pile of crap.
Dont get me wrong. The Peas arent that awful. Beneath the autotune, the plastic surgery, the nursery rhyme lyrics and the costumes designed for incontinent robots, there exists a modicum of talent that seems almost Barbie-esque. Fergies voice is captivating, in a maybe I should hire her for my bachelor party sort of way....

Imagining him saying it makes it even funnier.
Sorry...the BEP just (BLEEP’n) sucked!!
That is a funny and accurate piece!
But to hear any words other than “Golll-eee!” coming out of Jim Nabor’s mouth still creeps me out.
Bring back the old farts for SuperBowl Halftime...mabye get Roger Daltrey an autotune...
Yeah, I know I sound like a stupid old man with an swollen prostate and a tiny lawn.
why do so many people keep watching the superbowl year after year? I don’t think I’ve seen it in 5 years.
I’ve never liked the Black-eyed Peas. Never got it.
They should get AC DC to do a half time show. They could rock the place. “For those about to rock” “Back in Black” “Thunderstruck” and “You Shook me all night long”
I watched the BEP’s half time show at a bar and this woman brought her kid (ah, the side effects of smoking bans-ugh) and they were dancing around and singing along with the songs - the rest of us were like “Huh?What’s this crap on the screen?”
We all thought the show was stupid - it reminded me of the Chinese opening of the Olympics - but way suckier.....
That’s a good question. On the one hand, I try not to take it too hard, but on the other hand, it does sort of haunt me—this is our life, our time to experience existence, and the most popular tv event of the entire year is a football game? Really?
Uh...let me see if I understand...he wants jim nabors to do THAT song for the superbowl half time show?
Greg Gutfield is a comic, or a satyr-ist.
The half time show would have sounded better with trained musical monkeys playing feral cats with electric razors.
A+ for Greg.
Since the Super Bowl was in Texas, they should have got a Texas band, ZZ Top, to play at halftime.
One of the other guys was just funny as heck. I think his name is "usher" or some such. (WTF?) After his, ah, "performance" I turned to a friend and said well, at least MC Hammer's choreographer has been able to find work again. Seriously, I remember watching Hammer videos 20 years ago or so... This guy looked just like him.
I first noticed this with ESPN. During a college game, they had a video of Tom Arnold, DURING A PLAY, in a little cameo in the upper left of the screen, talking about how when he wore his college jersey it made his nipples raw. I thought, "I want to see a FOOTBALL game! Why the H E double hockey sticks would I want to hear about Tom Arnold's nipples?" That's when it dawned on me that ESPN KNEW they had us football guys. They wanted to increase their demographic by appealing to (well, I still have no idea what demographic wants to hear about Tom Arnold's nipples) but you get my drift.
Why does the NFL have players wearing pink? To increase their female demographic! Over 30,000 men die of prostate cancer each year, but the NFL doesn't make players go around with an asterisk on the seat of their pants for a month to build prostate cancer awareness, even though their primary demographic is a LOT more likely to get prostate cancer than breast cancer.
Okay, for guys, halftime is to be ignored. It's time to get more food or go to the john. Sooooo.... starting years ago, the Super Bowl started booking halftime acts that couldn't possibly appeal to people who care about football. Dittos for the new urgency about "too hard hits." Do you really think the NFL cares about players? They're disposable! That's why the owners who are so concerned about injury want to add another two games to the season. Nah, they don't care about injuries, unless it's to a marquee player or if someone gets paralyzed and brings them bad publicity. The problem is, women think football is too violent. Soooo.... the NFL, which is desperately trying to improve ratings with women starts fining the snot out of these players they care so much about, and starts pitching a line that football isn't about violence, it's about making proper tackles.
So, wait for next year, when the Super Bowl halftime features, heck I don't know and don't really care, cause I didn't see the Black Eyed Peas and I haven't watched a Super Bowl halftime in about fifteen years. Didn't see Janet Jackson's boob, either. If you're a guy, just understand that halftime is for the NFL to attract people who don't like football.
Don’t forget Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap.
3 bands that should play are:
Pat Green would be pretty sweet. He’s played at my high school’s alumni homecoming several years.
Pat Green would be pretty sweet. He’s played at my high school’s alumni homecoming several years. In the area too, at Jesuit.
Take your pick: SuperBowl, or Barry Zero’s SOTU speech.
I don’t know about you, but I’m leaning on the SB side. And it was actually a good game. Glad to see the Lambardi trophy go back home.
I just can’t think of Jim Nabors without him standing next to Rock Hudson wearing a wedding dress.
I saw one other football game this year--Jets vs Patriots. I guess I live a cloistered life. I was extremely turned off by the showboating that takes place in NFL football, on the most mundane and routine plays. Unsportsmanlike conduct up and down the field. I found the whole thing utterly disgraceful. How do you like that? I'm a guitar playing, banjo picking, weed smoking prig!
Nah, but I am old school. I'd like to see one of those prancing players get their ass kicked. Even in these debauched times that still wouldn't fly in baseball, and the players themselves would enforce it.
I’m in my early 50’s and have always been 5-10 years behind when it comes to buying tapes or CD’s. Usually I get the ‘best of’ some group I like and other things. Havent been able to buy anything from the 2000’s. I figured it was half age and half the music. But now I think its really the music!
Britney Spears, Aguilera, J Lo, rap, et al are pretty bad.
It hasnt been a good decade for music.
Although the brazilian girl with hips wasn’t too bad...Shakira.
Neither of my two older Eagle Scouts listen to this crap.
I like him as well.
You can say that again Richard.
That was the first time I had seen them. How many peas in that pod? Is it just the 3 guys and a gal who started the thing or all those others, too?
I’m stuned! (Who’s beiber???)
I want to say it was six or seven years ago.
Some critic, didn’t get his name, said the two best moments of the BEP show were when Slash and Usher came on and I have to agree (in other words, the best moments of the show were non-BEP). He said Fergie “shrieked” her way through “Sweet Child O’ Mine” in a poor Axl Rose imitation (I thought this was funny but true). I think either Guns ‘N Roses or Usher would have been better than BEP. Lynyrd Skynyrd, Van Halen, AC/DC and Def Lepard would all be good choices.
Possibly because they like football. Just a guess.
Perfectly describes her and her singing.
I was hoping for Willie Nelson and the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders...
Def Leppard would be awesome as well.
First time I’ve ever seen these black eyed peas. Have to say, I’m kinda surprised that the song “I’ve got a feeling” is sung by a full grown black man. I’d always assumed it was sung by a white teen boy of indeterminate sexuality, you know a beeber without all the masculinity.
They forgot that “Let’s Get Retarded” is a song title, not stage directions.
I hope that next year it’s Teg Nugent.
I don’t know how accurate this list is, but apparently there are some good Conservative singers out there
Mariah Carey? 50 Cent? Prove it.
Billy Ray Cyrus? Charlie Daniels? Hell yes, I believe that.
Next year SB is in Indianapolis (assuming the lockout is over)
I’d suspect Mellencamp (of course he’s a Baraqqi).
But the NFL is in general very pro Baraqqi.
I told my kids about halftime when I was a kid. They were fascinated.
The kids throught the singer butchered the Anthem. Teenagers all, they talked about how the Anthem was about the song, not the singer.
When I told them about the college marching bands of my youth marching in designs and formations playing old band mucic and show tunes they were fascinated.
Perhaps it is time for the adults to take over our entertainment? Some decent music that everyone can enjoy, nothing like brass bands. And a good singer who can sing and read notes and follow a revered tune.
it does sort of haunt methis is our life, our time to experience existence, and the most popular tv event of the entire year is a football game?
I call the SuperBowl the National High Holiday.
need I add the sarcasm tags?
BTW, saw the commercials on the net. Yuck! not much talent this year.
Greg did this for his ‘Gregalogue’ on the first “Red Eye” show after the Super Bowl. It was hilarious, especially his suggesting something like Jim Nabors, instead.
