I guess it was inevitable. With all these random bands getting back together (Limp Bizkit, Blink 182, 4/5 of Soundgarden) it was only a matter of time......
brace yourselves....apparently, Creed, everyone's favorite hated band, is re-forming. I guess Scott Stapp's anger management/DUI ticket charges are too much for him to handle in this recession, so he decided to re-form the pompous Christian clan. Sigh....
I mean, it was entertaining to read that article a few years ago about how Creed fans were tryng to sue the band for Stapp being belligerently drunk onstage and falling down/forgetting lyrics to his own stupid songs. That was good for some laughs....then he got in a fight at a hotel bar with 311, the reggae/rock band from LA comprised mostly of mild-mannered stoners. Stapp was clearly riding high.
I guess with his solo album in $.50 bins across the country, he needed a way to re-inflate his checking account.....but who will go see a Creed tour or buy another album? Can Creed fans REALLY EXIST at this point? It's a frightening thought, really. I guess no one cared enough about Alter Bridge, huh? wow.
In other news.....I saw the most incredible use of the Internet EVER last night. Apparently, someone hacked (or tweaked) ESPN.com.....for a brief amount of time, if someone typed the "Konami Code" (for non-video game freaks, it is
UP, UP, DOWN, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT, LEFT RIGHT, B, A, and the Enter key), the screen would become littered with colorful unicorn pictures.
Who knows why this was done, but it was truly AMAZING. How anyone figured this out in the first place is ridiculous(ly awesome). Here's a screen cap I took when I got it to work:
How totally absurd is that? hahahah
