You Say It's Your Birthday....

It's been a while since I wrote a compare and contrast essay, please bear with me:

The Contenders:

Share the same birthday of August 1, 1981

Have similar affinities for one hit wonders

Both are known to get their groove on

One is lame and desperately trying to hold on to its coolness factor, the other is as cool as cool could be.

One is still a fresh and young summer chicken, whereas the other is outdated, worn out and tired.

People said that this one would never last while it is no great surprise that other one made it to the ripe old age of 25.

Can you guess which is which?

(Please don't hurt my feelings, it is my birthday afterall. And everyone knows that MTV is souless anyway)

P.S. Guess who else has the same birthday? Ashley Angel (Careful, site might give you seizures)! And if you don't know who that is, you obviously have not watched enough MTV.

    Ah! What devil made the Ashley Parker Angel website?

    There was just something so sad but also comical about that man, by the way. It's sad to be a washed up pop star at age 22 (or whatever his age was) and to be living with your pregnant girlfriend's mother. It's comical that at that point you have some sort of hang up about marrying her. Hello! You live in her mother's house so you already live together or at least share her old high school room. You're already considered family You're already have children with this person. What aspect of the "marriage" commitment scares you at this point? Having to buy a ring?

    You bring up some excellent points. I didn't actually read the site, just linked to it, but now I sort of wish that I hadn't even done that. My favorite part is the "teenagers for alzheimer's research" banner. Like anyone really thinks A.A. is still a teenager. Time to give up that ghost, buddy.

    Holy God, who wrote the recaps of "There and Back"? They sound like a 13 year-old fan is responsible. And I hope for everyone involved that it isn't a reality show. What morom wants to give his kid a normal name because he doesn't want to kid to be teased and then names the baby "Lyric"? Bad decision, folks.
