My my my. Guess who now has not only one job interview next week, but TWO? That’s right, yesterday I got a call from the Hampton School Department for an interview at their middle school. Sweetness. Now I just need to get my NH Teaching Certificate, which is easier said than done. The NH Department of Education website is so confusing you’d think that Edward E. Nigma was their webmaster. Ba-dum Bump! I’m currently in Ossipee awaiting to go for a routine cleaning with my dentist, or as I call him, Mr. Pokeyouinthegumsuntiltheybleedandmakeyoufeelbadaboutyouroralhygiene man. At least I’ll get another sweet tooth brush.
Anyways, today we’re going to pick up on Tuesday’s topic of the band Genesis. Per request of my lovely lady, I’m going to now briefly mention the band’s career when Mr. Phil Collins became lead singer. As I mentioned in my previous Genesis entry, Collins was originally the drummer of the band, a position which gave him free reign to look like this:
|“You kids wanna party?”|
|Thinning hair? Check. Late 80’s/early 90’s outfit? Check. Telekinesis? DOUBLE CHECK|
It’s interesting to note that the less hair Phil Collins had, the bigger mainstream success Genesis (and his solo career) achieved. Some people say he sold out, that the band lost touch with their prog rock roots.But no. You see, Phil Collins’ pop music know-how was merely trapped under the weight of his weird LOTR hair and hobo beard. Once they were shed, he was able to take over the world with his smooth, non-threatening “rock” and Tarzan soundtrack.
