Times of Israel ^ | 2/2/14 | Staff

Former Pink Floyd front man Roger Waters, one of the more prominent celebrity faces of the boycott Israel movement, says he has contacted Scarlett Johansson “a couple of times” over the A-list actress’s decision to represent an Israeli company that operates in a West Bank settlement ... “In the past days I have written privately to Neil Young (once) and to Scarlett Johanson (a couple of times).

No one likes Roger Waters as a person. No one. He is a deeply unpleasant man.

But Pink Floyd is cool and he made solid musical contributions there. But as a person? He's crap.

Don’t do drugs kid or you may turn your brain into mush.

And Rog has been pro-Islamist for awhile now.

For someone down on war and religion it’s a stupid turn to take.

What? Scarlett isn’t free to make her own career moves? She has to check in with Roger Waters?

Scarlett, in her most lovely voice, should ask “Who is Rod Waters? Is he from like the 70s? Is he still around?”

I think if you even get a nice guy like David Gilmour upset at you, you have to be a real jerk.

I’ve never heard anyone say a bad thing about David. And I’m sure he’s left of center, as well, but for the most part he keeps his views to himself.

If I didn’t already have a sodastream, I’d rush out and buy one right now. It became a major “beer replacement” for me a couple of years ago. Love the thing. All I do is sodawater, btw.

His opinion truly emanates from the dark side of the moon.

Or, better yet...

Just another brick in the wall of stupidity.

“I want the world to know I have privately communicated with these people who didn’t already kowtow to my world view, but I won’t tell you what I said or how I said it, because those communications are private. I will tell you that they didn’t respond yet.”

Coherence of thought appears to be out of his league.

They’re pretty cool. I thought it might be another goofy kitchen thing that’s not what it’s cracked up to be, but it’s not. You can control the amount of carbonation and flavor to
get what suits you. We got two within our family for Christmas. Can’t speak to how they hold up over the long-term yet.

And who exactly is Roger Waters? A has-been. A jerk. Probably an addict to one or more of the common vices. And who therefore is he to tell another person who to support? Exactly no one.

Might be a little expensive, but Roger Waters could do with a few SodaStreat devices given in his name to Barack Obama -sort of a twofer.

Several replacement canisters for us so far. I usually don’t carbonate the water all that much, but it’s amazing how much I drink when I do carbonate it. And I need to drink lots of water.

At Roger Waters’ concerts the guy blows up a giant inflatable pig with a Star of David and multiple anti-semetic images.

Hey Rog - Take that star of David off your inflatable pig and put an Obama logo on there instead. Or a hammer and sickle.

Personally, I think successful music groups should rotate their members. That is, regularly cycle in new, creative members as old ones move on to either mentoring, solo careers or new groups, or acting as management. It would provide the best of both worlds: continuity and new ideas.

Doing this, they could also invite in guest talent, like Santana has taken to doing. Another benefit is that their music can be richer, with the new ideas backed up by tried and true background additions.

Old hippie is a Nazi. Quell surprise.

Music was lousy and dumb for the most part as well.

Without the marijuana industry, he’d be a lot less wealthy.

Naw, just a creepy old coot. Probably looks like Jethro Tull's Aqualung.

Except for some individual songs these guys were horrible.
