'Breathable Bacon' face mask gives wearers the aroma of bacon

If you’ve noticed your breath isn’t that great since Covid, this could be the mask for you. It could also be good for vegetarians who don’t want to eat meat, but keep buying the fake stuff. I’ve tried it, it tastes like crap. Maybe just the aroma of meat is a better substitute?….

Five Finger Death Punch's Zoltan Bathory Denies New Video Has Anti-Mask Message

Never let the truth get in the way of a good story! Five Finger Death Punch aren’t anti masks, they’re anti communist! They are however, as one of their album titles proclaimed, American capitalists.

Song stuck in your head? Just hum to search

Do You Drink More Coffee Than Other Creative Leaders?

According to this my coffee intake is on par with David Lynch, when he’s brainstorming.  I can drink at least seven cups of coffee per day. So, does this podcast make more sense than Twin Peaks?

Humans Taste Like Salt & Sweet Candy To Mosquitos

I have just had my first Texas summer. A lot of people told me it would be hell, it’s too hot, the humidity is unbearable, the thermometer will say 100, but it feels like 110. It’s been the only time I felt like saying to Texans, “THIS IS TEXAS! MAN UP!” I moved from Phoenix, so a few days of 100 degrees is fine. The mosquitos that come out at dusk, not so much.

I spent the first few weeks of summer in DFW with so many bites about my body, I looked like a drug addict who was running out of usable veins. If this study is true and  humans are like sweet candy to mosquitos, my blood must taste like the most exotic truffle these creatures have ever experienced. But I found a solution. After wasting money on some of Amazon’s cheaper insect repellent options, I bought the biggest machine they have. It’s huge grill like elements shine bright blue lights, to attract and destroy mosquitoes. I leave it on in my front room overnight, and that’s when it gets them. It makes a buzzing noise, which would be annoying in that it wakes me up. Except that these Texas mosquitos have been so troublesome, there something comforting about that buzz, when I get the feeling of such satisfaction that I just killed in my sleep.

Wonderwall – The First 90s Song With One Billion Streams On Spotify

Congratulations Oasis! Wonderwall is a great song. Perfect in its simplicity in that it’s basic guitar a beginner could play, and Noel Gallagher will tell you it’s about nothing in particular. You can analyze the lyrics all you want. The most profound aspect of this song is that Noel sat on a wall to record his parts.

Is this the best Oasis song? Probably not. Did they make great songs after in? Yes. Did they make another great album after (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? I don’t think so. If you took the decent tracks from Be Here Now onwards you could create one very good album. But even that probably wouldn’t compare to the band’s debut and sophomore efforts.

Which brings me to the question – Is there any point in Oasis reforming? Noel and Liam solo are largely considered inferior versions of Oasis. But Oasis were a below par version of themselves from their third album onwards. At least with the brothers still hating one another you get twice as much new music.
