- One of the best parts about watching this trailer, just like when the trailer for Season 3 came out last year, is how a lot of the clips shown are even more amusing in no context whatsoever. (Like Dean’s “Hitler just needs someone to believe in him!”)
- Part of me is still a little concerned about how entertaining 21 will be without 24, but I do admire the balls it takes to kill off a character everybody loves.
- Anyone else kind of sick of Sgt. Hatred? I liked him better when he was a reoccurring off-screen joke, rather than an actual character with still, just one joke.
I’m weirdly not bothered by most accusations of musical plagiarism. I can appreciate the Chili Pepper’s “Dani California” and Tom Petty’s “Mary Jane’s Last Dance” on their own merits, in spite of the nearly identical chord progression and strum pattern of the verse. I had no real opinion in the whole Coldplay vs. Joe Satriani vs. Cat Stevens debacle, because hey, there a millions of musicians and billions of songs, and every artist is inspired by everything else he’s heard before. Riffs will repeat themselves.
Depending on how litigation happy the former members of The Jam are, I wouldn’t be too surprised to see Weezer’s newest single get slapped with a lawsuit. Compare Weezer’s “If You Are Wondering If I Want You To” with The Jam’s “Town Called Malice.”
Disclaimer: As long as we’re talking about plagiarism, I should point out that this discovery was not my own. The similarities were pointed out to me in the comments on the UltimateGuitar.com news feed.
Maybe we’ll have some content to go with these youtube videos one day!
