Random Shit About...Random Shit

I have no interest in country music, but when these photos from the CMA awards appeared as a "highlighting" story, I just couldn't help myself. This first photo you see here is of Carrot Top, who without props, would be about as entertaining as a self-induced hot coffee enema.


Okay Carrot Top, WE GET IT! You are no longer the ugly-as-hell string bean wuss. Instead, you traded in that look for the ugly-as-hell drag queen project gone horribly wrong. Now, how'd he get an invitation to the CMA awards? Also, did he know this was a kind of formal thing(at least as formal as country folk can get)? This photo was taken after someone confirmed to Carrot Top that Kelly Pickler was legal and very drunk.

This next one was another "How the hell did he get a ticket?" guest. This is Don Yates of American Gladiators. Here he must have been wondering what to wear, then asked himself, "What would someone wear if a redneck version of the movie Hellraiser was made?" Brings new meaning to the name Pinhead. Here he sports a pose that shows how he'll be delivering pizzas once his career as a gladiator is over.


Hey Don, it took more than 30 minutes and all I have is a C-note, better luck next time, asshole. By the way, have you seen Carrot Top's arms? (Ironically)They happen to be that much bigger than yours now.

Okay, last one and I'll quit. Here is a photo of Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush (I have no freakin' idea who the hell they are and don't care).




Tell me if you agree, does his little outfit look as if he were a homeless person that mugged a parking valet for his clothes and the valet was about 6 inches shorter than him? That hat also looks like one of those hats you get at Chuck-E-Cheese for your birthday. This photo happened to be taken as they caught a glimpse of Carrot Top and Don Yates on the carpet.

yuck! I swear, some people will never have an iota of class, no matter what. Geez, CMA awards or not, show some respect.

Carrot Top gives me nightmares. That is one scary looking freak.

Carrot Top is looking pretty freaky, isn't he?

Not the CMA's, those were the ACM's. Us Nashville folk are picky about that kind of shit...

It's all a part of country music's inferiority complex. Pissed off because they think the media big shots in New York and Los Angeles ignore them, country artists don't think one awards show is enough, they gotta have two.

Seriously, the reason for the ACM's is that back in the 60's and 70's they made as much country music on the West Coast as they did in Nashville (Merle Haggard and Buck Owens for example). The West Coast artists thought the Nashville-based CMA was ignoring them, so they started their own association, the impressive-sounding Academy Of Country Music. Now they have an excuse to have two parties a year.

Hey doc, there's a difference??? Who'd a thunk it. For what it's worth, I miss Nashville. Been there many times and miss the area. I could talk for hours on it.

WTF is up with Carrot Top? Okay, so he got buff. Big deal ... he so totally looks like a drag queen with all that make up!!

For what it's worth, I miss Nashville.

But you've got Branson nearby, the place Nashville acts go to die.

I'm going out on a limb here to say that the ACM stylists got their credentials off the internet. "No money down. Placement available. Certificate guaranteed. No shoes, no shirt, no problem."
