...

Edvard Munch's iconic painting, 'The Scream', was sold at a NYC auction for an eye-watering $119.9m (£74m).

However, after suspicions arose due to the odd nature of the composition, some careful brushwork by experts has revealed that it has been over- painted. Investigations have also brought to light that Munch was a smooth jazz freak. The original composition now puts the painting into context. Its seems to make sense now. Rumor has it that the buyer wants his money back

Ha ha! Wow, who knew? Sotheby's seems like a reputable outfit. I'm sure they have 30 day return policy.

If you had an hour where you HAD to listen to a certain artist, how would you rank the below in terms of pain delivered?

Kenny G http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_vtLRnXNlY

Cannibal Corpse http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5Hv0tsvpyU

Tony Orlando and Dawn http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z0sZBFvTjRw

Sorry, but I'd rather sit through Kenny than the others.
Wow, tough choice.....hmmmmm........I think I might sit with you.

I guess suffering is inevitable and pain is relative.

PS- geez, Tony looks like a porn star

Tony and Jeff Berlin, eh? hehe

I never understood the degree of hate for poor old Kenny. Yes, be bleats at the same dynamic level endlessly, uses long notes as a gimmick, plays with a grating upper register tone, people say he plays sharp (I don't notice that), and he's erroneously referred to as "jazz" - but I still find him more agreeable than a lot of music.

Oh, and he did that thing with the Satchmo recording. Somehow a cute pop song by Louie is treated like a sacred cow. If it was Mack the Knife, okay, leave it alone ... but Whadda Wunnerful Woild is fluff.

It was just an excuse to kick a guy who dumbed down and sold out. He was a a traitor. Worse still, a massively successful traitor :) Interesting how often commercially successful music (and movies, novels etc) lacks depth. I think it says something about us.

Depth is for oceans - bring out the beer!
