I wonder whether the music reviewer for the Olympian owns a copy of Alapalooza?

We used to get bored in our hometown, so we used to videotape ourselves driving around and terrorizing people, spraying old ladies with water guns, egging houses and breaking stuff. . .  

. . . My resolution is ... to be arrested next year at some point, and I want to go f------ crazy. Just don't tell my mom. We'll keep it a secret.


My guess is, they also toilet-papered a few lawns while they were at it.

Being a parodist is a tough job to start with, but how much harder does it become when you have to keep moving to stay ahead of people so eager to parody themselves?

Egad. Yet another sign of the Apocolypse.

Nah, it's not quite that bad. The horseman of the Apocalypse you're thinking of was Pestilence, and these guys were just representing Pest. What really made me hoot was the "don't tell Mom" part.

I knew it looked wrong. Too lazy to spell check it.

Well, obviously, I like this song. Especially the part where he's like "Our name spells Trouble..T-R-U-B-E-L!"

One of the things about Alapalooza, to me at least, is that, except for "Traffic Jam," the originals are pretty weak. It's like that Mr. Monopoly sketch on SNL: it's really the same joke worded differently a lot. GiF is like this too, although I think that song is better. This song is really just "Hoodlums in France."
