Pink Floyd Rules!

Ok, so here's one good thing about Live 8: Pink Floyd was incredible.


Watch for them to replay it. Please. You won't be disappointed. David Gilmour is the most underrated guitarist of his generation. He is technically perfect. The sound was incredible. Oh, to have been there! You lucky Londoners! I'm so jealous!

But, and I must insert a complaint here, the m*th*rf*cker at MTV that cut the feed just past the half-way mark of "Comfortably Numb" deserves to be SHOT! Thank God we had it streaming on the internet as well was watching it on tee vee, but if we hadn't...we would have missed the last three glorious minutes!

Pink Floyd---THE Pink Floyd with Roger Waters in tow---gets back together, is performing live for the first time in twenty years and YOU CUT THEM OFF BEFORE THEY'RE DONE? Who the FUCK do you people think you are? One of the GREATEST rock bands of all time gets back together and YOU CUT AWAY BEFORE THEY'VE LEFT THE STAGE? Good grief. You whippersnappers have ABSOLUTELY NO RESPECT for those who came before you. Shame on you!

That MTV guy is toast. He's having a shit storm fall down on him and probably won't survive.

There's a reason Dark Side of the Moon is STILL on the Billboard Top 100 after all these years.

As "Lawrence" from "Office Space" would say:

"No, Peterman, I do believe that you'd get your ass kicked for doing something like that."

I've been wanting to use that quote for awhile now. ;)

They were back, and they were THAT GOOD, and they got cut off.

There's a guy who's so pissed about MTV pulling that sh*t that he's got an auction on ebay to legally change his name to "MTV Sucks"! hahahahahaa

I'm not the least bit surprised at F'nMTV; if there's no booty-shakin' going on in the show, they have no use for it. Pink Floyd is LIGHT YEARS beyond their intellectual capacity.

Man, I love Gilmour's vocals and guitar work. I really couldn't care less about Waters coming back except if they release another album...'cause the man can write some good lyrics.
