EPIC BATTLE!

Post by tattoogoddess » Wed Oct 19, 2011 6:50 pm

So this is how the game goes.
Who would win in the battle?
Post 2 people you would like to see in a battle . The person who posts next has to say who would win and why. Then post there own battle. You can in your comments leave thoughts on previous battles but you have to take care of the first part first.-


BATTLE!

Kenny G
VS.
Kenny From South Park


GO!

pat metheny beats kenny G by TKO.

http://www.jazzguitar.be/metheny_interview.html

Not long ago, kenny g put out a recording where he overdubbed himself on top of a 30+ year old louis armstrong record, the track "what a wonderful world". with this single move, kenny g became one of the few people on earth i can say that i really can't use at all - as a man, for his incredible arrogance to even consider such a thing, and as a musician, for presuming to share the stage with the single most important figure in our music.

This type of musical necrophilia - the technique of overdubbing on the preexisting tracks of already dead performers - was weird when natalie cole did it with her dad on "unforgettable" a few years ago, but it was her dad. When tony bennett did it with billie holiday it was bizarre, but we are talking about two of the greatest singers of the 20th century who were on roughly the same level of artistic accomplishment. When larry coryell presumed to overdub himself on top of a wes montgomery track, i lost a lot of the respect that i ever had for him....

But when kenny g decided that it was appropriate for him to defile the music of the man who is probably the greatest jazz musician that has ever lived by spewing his lame-ass, jive, pseudo bluesy, out-of-tune, noodling, wimped out, fucked up playing all over one of the great louis's tracks (even one of his lesser ones), he did something that i would not have imagined possible. He, in one move, through his unbelievably pretentious and calloused musical decision to embark on this most cynical of musical paths, shit all over the graves of all the musicians past and present who have risked their lives by going out there on the road for years and years developing their own music inspired by the standards of grace that louis armstrong brought to every single note he played over an amazing lifetime as a musician.

Sometimes I'm confused by what I think is really obvious. But what I think is really obvious obviously isn't obvious.

Hawkings- he does all his thinking in his own head, no writing formula's out somewhere. Both are brilliant, Hawking did it with the metaphorical "both hands tied behind his back".

Bachman - While she has the Tea Partiers behind her, Palin is just kooky, Bachman is a mean bigot (who has the power of the evil ones behind her).

Soros is a bogyman of the right used solely to distract attention from the corrupting influence of the extreme far-right Koch brothers; Buffet is a multibillionaire who is encouraging the increase of taxes on the top 1% (he's in the top 10% of the top 1%) and has already pledged the bulk of his fortune to the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation to be used to help eradicate common diseases in the 3rd world.

Buffet for the win.

Do you mean now or at some time when both of them are alive? I'll assume you mean at the current time. Since Ham's skeleton is still intact and Laika's entire remains disintegrated upon reentry into our atmosphere, Ham wins simply by virtue of enjoying a slightly more complete physical existence. Ham's femurs could be used as a weapon which is a more powerful existence in that regard. So, I've say that Ham is the hands down overall winner.

How about Rosie O'donnell or Martha Stewart?

Dr. Sam Beckett can just quantum leap his way out, so therefor he is a pussy for running away. MacGyver can probably kill you with a toothpick and some dental floss. MacGyver for the win!!!
