Young'uns who rock

Today I'm going to post about an entire band instead of just the one musician because these girls have been together in a band since junior high school--The Donnas. I wasn't going to mention them so early on, but apparently there is a misconception going around. Or maybe there is. I was wearing a band T-shirt of theirs last night when I went to the corner store and the cashier asked me how long it's been since they "quit singing". I decided she meant they had broken up and I said no, that they were still together and she looked at me funny and just said she wished they were still singing.

When I got home and told that story to my boyfriend, he was as confused as me and suggested that the cashier had mixed them up with someone else, possibly a 60's-style girl group. "Their name does remind me of something like The Shirelles or The Ronettes," he said, earning massive bonus points for remembering names of 60's pop groups I like. I pointed out that would be funny if that was her mistake, since they named themselves The Donnas in homage to The Ramones who draw on girl groups for inspiration themselves. *ohm*

The Donnas were Ramones-style pop punk when they started out, but since then they've wrested creative control away from management types and have really come into their own sound, which is way more straightforward rock. Their latest album is pure L.A. rocking out type music, and that means their fan base has just blown up in size. The first few shows of theirs I saw were crowded but not outrageous. The last time we went to see them, it was so crowded that someone opened up a Zippo behind me and somehow managed to put a tear in my leather jacket. Vintage suede jacket, argh. (I know that I shouldn't be so vain, but if you can't wear your badass cool vintage finds to rock shows, then where, pray tell?)

But in all honestly, I do have to say their latest album Spend the Night is their best, and it's great that they are getting more success as they come into their own as musicians instead of just falling apart as a lot of young groups do as life catches up with them. Their professionalism is really just astounding for such young women, especially in a field like rock music where professionalism is a complete joke.

its alex...

so the donnas are a band that completely missed the point. when they started out, they were a cute, (sort of) ramones rip off band with a bad gimmick of wearing t-shirts with their donna name on the front (donna k, donna m, donna %, whatever). now, with guidance from their label, theyre a bunch of glammed up, bland, jessica simpson bores. all that teased hair and make up seems to have made them abandon all hopes of credibility in favor of keeping their record deal and earning the big bucks.

if you want to talk about a female band that actually knows how to play good ramones ripoffs and arent image conscious yawn inducers, check out the eyeliners, an all-sister group from new mexico (http://theeyeliners.com)

Hi Alex. ;) Regardless of their corporate whoredom, I still think that they rock harder now.

But, yeah, I love The Eyeliners, though. Thanks for the reminder--they're on my list.

I've liked The Donnas for years now, and I think Spend The Night is absolutely hilarious. But for pure rockin' action, I have to give the nod to American Teenage Rock 'n' Roll Machine.

Drop on by and browse through a huge archive of office joke

This is one of the many jokes i found amongst the many joke categorys:
A man walks into his favorite bar and saw a bum panhandeling. The bum asked if the man could spare a dollar. The man replied "If I give you money are you going to use it to buy liquor?" The bum said he would not, so the man asked "If I give you money are you going to use it for gambling?" Again the bum said he would not, so the man asked "Would you come home with me so I can show my wife what happenes to someone who doesnt gamble or drink?"

Hi matey

I'm sure it was this blog I was reading a while back where someone was looking for an SEO tool for driving more traffic and get more hits for their website.

Anyway, I was speaking to a techi guy at work who gets to know all the latest stuff and he uses the free Link Referral Program at http://marketingexperts.wordpress.com.

His website on affiliate marketing mlm network amongst other stuff has seen traffic explode since he started using the Link Referral Program - consequently his affiliate sales commissions and business sales went through the roof PLUS his website increased in google ranking which was an added bonus!!

If anyone else has any good ideas for driving more traffic to blogs/websites then please share with your online business blog buddies. Ta ;-)
