Culture Club- Colour By Numbers
I only own this album because it was a grab bag find and "Karma Chameleon" is a cool tune. But take away that tune plus "Church Of The Poison Mind" and "Miss Me Blind" and this is a rather bad album. And it has a ton of skips on it. So that being said it's a non-keeper. If I come across a Greatest Hits album by them, I'll be cool with that. "Do You Really Want To Hurt Me" off the first album is a great song..
Speaking of that song, I remember the first time I saw Culture Club was on Solid Gold in like 1983. It didn't bother me that Boy George looked like a woman at all. What bothered me was that he was performing in his bare feet! That was so strange and gross to me because I've never been a fan of bare feet. I can tolerate my own and Jessica's, but other than that, it's pretty nasty. Especially dudes in flip flops. Girls can get away with it for the most part because they tend to take care of their feet, but have you ever seen a dude with a pair of good looking feet?
I have a pair of flops I wear around the house that Jessica's Mom got me in Brazil, but that's it. I'm not going out in public in them. They make you look ridiculous and the noise they make is super annoying. I remember going down to the beach on the Jersey Shore when I was younger and I'd be walking around on the sand in my combat boots. I'm sure I looked like a dumbass to everyone, but that's how much I hated flip flops when I was younger.
Ok, no more blasting the foot. There is a 10% chance of there being a blog tomorrow night. I'm leaving early tomorrow morning to drive with my buddy Chris to see Roger Waters in Dallas. Woo-hoo! We're staying overnight, so unless I get up very early and put on a record, it's not happening. I'm bummed about it. I haven't missed a day on this blog in quite some time, but I guess it had to happen eventually. What I really want to get is a portable turntable so this won't happen in the future.
