I was reading an article about Megadeth's upcoming album and I saw this quote from band leader and singer, Dave Mustaine:
- "I was watching TV and saw the trucks that said 'UN' on them and said, 'Man, you are so uncool, ineffective, anything," the singer/guitarist (Dave Mustaine) said in a recent Billboard interview.
"I thought, 'Wow, I've got to run with this. I got it — United Abominations, 'cause it's an abomination what they're doing!' "
Wow. Dave, you are a super genius and I don't find any of what you just said trite, boring, or particularly dull and toothless.
While we are at it, Dave, I have some more tips for you to help you on your quest to become a completely OUTRAGEOUS purveyor of groundbreaking thought, opinion, and commentary.
Why not start doing standup comedy and talk about how "weird" it is that they call that building that the passengers leave from a "terminal." That's interesting, right? You ought to run with that.
Or maybe you can do a hip hop song that celebrates a "bling" lifestyle. It isn't like everyone on earth including Kevin Federline is doing that, right? Run with it Dave, and tell us about rims, champaigne and chains.
Or maybe you can go to Hollywood and be one half of a buddy relationship while working on a police force! That's not all, it gets even better, Dave. We will make your partner black because you are white and there can be a lot of commentary that gets at the heart of not only what makes the races different, but in the end strikingly the same. Because we haven't seen that done 2,347 times before. Seriously, that is groundbreaking stuff. You ought to run with it.
If those ideas don't work for you, maybe you can join professional baseball and talk about how it isn't a sprint, but a marathon. And if you really want to blow the roof off the world you can tell everyone you are just taking it "one game at a time" and you aren't worried about "individual achievements" because you are all about the team!
Seriously dude. You need to run with it. These are just groundbreakingly awesomely unbelievable ideas that are just waiting to be taken and carried forward by some kind of cultural visionary. And you, Dave, just might be that person. You totally blew us away with your last batch of thoughts. To think that the United (Abomi)Nations are "inneffective" and more importantly "uncool."
I am hopeful you will take my ideas and do something really neat with them, Dave. It sure would be nice to see.
