There was more than one?

Last night, while cruising Best Buy looking for a phone and a new Me First CD, I saw something called “The Best of Don McLean“.

I thought to myself, “Hmm, they wouldn’t sell a blank CD, would they?” I picked it up, and sure enough, there were 10 songs on there. I didn’t know that guy made more than one song! Track 1 on the CD is American Pie – that anthem of nonsense and random ramblings having something to do with the deaths of several musicians and a ton of other stuff. But I’d never heard of any of the other songs on the CD.

I started wondering – if American Pie is his best, and these other nine songs are among his best, does that make them good, or simply not horrible?

I don’t think I’ll ever know, because a breakfast cereal has inspired me to aspire to greater hights. This cereal is CERTIFIED GOODNESS.

I don’t know about you, but I haven’t seen very many good things that have their goodness certified. Typically, you’ll get a personal recommendation from an aquaintance on the goodness of something, but a testimonial is not nearly the equal of a certification. I’ve had plenty of people tell me that something is the greatest thing ever, only to discover first-hand that it totally sucks. Pizza with pesto, for instance, or any show with John Ritter.

Speaking of whom, we have a new hire here, who looks like John Ritter, cast as a bum. He’s in QA. Will his goodness be certified?

  1. I don’t know – I just picked up Blow In The Wind, and Take A Break. I already had Have A Ball, and Ruin Jonny’s Bar Mitzvah.

  2. You must have Are A Drag too, if you have the Phantom of the Opera song. I need to get Ruin Johnny’s Bar Mitzvah!

  3. Actually, I downloaded that one off the Internet. I am attempting to make up for my previously deviant ways by purchasing the actual albums.

    Me First albums are hard to find, though! Most I’ve seen in any location is two CD’s.
