What?! No one's talking about the new...
 
Hootie album?

no one cares about Hootie anymore?

actually, it's pretty decent. much better than their last one (the self-titled one).

man, if you go to their website and check out their tour dates... my, have times changed. they're playing casinos, conventions, college festivals, and bar mitzvahs (ok, maybe not that last one).

My brother works for Enterprise Rent-a-Car. they had their Managers' conference in Orlando back in May. And for their big party, they had Hootie and the Blowfish. weird.

Nice vague thread title. Let the flaming begin.

Half the band is from my hometown. Don't have much of an opinion of the band, but the bandmembers are very cool, nice people. So I wish them success.

You would have had a better chance of bringing out Hootie fans by mentioning it in the title, though. If you've lurked around enough, you know most people here don't like vague thread titles. I personally don't care too much, but admittedly, I wouldn't have clicked on a Hootie thread. ;)

Nice bargain. -rolleyes-

Big Boy Laroux 08-10-05 02:53 PM

yeah, but i thought a vague title fit here. get people all excited for a hootie cd. i mean, I didn't even know they were coming out with one until I saw it in the Best Buy ad.

Artman 08-10-05 03:03 PM

Listening to it now... so far pretty good. I don't really have a strong opinon on them, but I've always enjoyed their music.

That link is from CMT, when did Hootie become country? I remember their first breakout album cracked rear view was anything but country. I will have to check it out for the free listen. Thanks.

ClarkKentKY 08-10-05 09:34 PM

They have a bit of country in them. Musical Chairs was mostly country flavored in my opinion. I actually like that side of them more.

man you really miss that smilely. Why not place a list of your personal possessions in your sig instead?

reverie 08-11-05 08:07 AM

I'm not talking about it because I don't like them as a band. Is it still considered thread crapping if I wouldn't be here in the first place had there been a descriptive title? ;)

I wouldn't want to be vain. :p

MartinBlank 08-11-05 11:47 PM

um....isn't Hootie pushin Burger King? I figured he was finally kicked out of the music business.

Buford T Pusser 08-12-05 10:44 AM

Yes.

So you are saying that you have so little faith in Hootie that if you put their name in the thread title that no one would click on it? Some fan you are!

[QUOTE=Big Boy Laroux]yeah, but i thought a vague title fit here. get people all excited for a hootie cd. /QUOTE]

I used to hate Hootie, but thanks to your vague thread title, I'm not really excited about the new CD.

EDIT: Damn, that should have been "Now really excited," but I guess my brain wouldn't even let me say something like that sarcastically.

Groucho 08-12-05 12:46 PM

Everytime I look at a vague thread title, I go blind.

(repeat 700,000 times and call it a "song")

Big Boy Laroux 08-12-05 01:01 PM

i like hootie, but yes, my faith in them has dwindled. they're playing casinos now. hardly a big time act.

uberjoe 08-12-05 02:16 PM

Hootie sucks. Hard.

So does your thread title. Don't do that again.

Buford T Pusser 08-12-05 02:27 PM

I think I'll go with a vague thread title next time. That'll get me to the second page fast!
