Wax Ecstatic (to Sell R2-D2)



Star Wars (1995 "Faces" VHS).


Wax Ecstatic by Sponge. A forgotten relic of the post-Cobain '90s rock scene. Part of that weird, glitter-meets-grunge subgenre that never really took off. These guys are still plugging away, though. Check out their Myspace page if you don't believe me. They're not rockin' as many feather boas as they used to. That makes me sad.


- The line "things just aren't going your way" in "Wax Ecstatic (to Sell Angelina)" is heard as Princess Leia is seen being escorted to Darth Vader after her capture.


So, do you give up yet? Do you want to know what this week's theme was? Okay, I'll tell you. This week's theme was "Albums I've Been Trying to Get Rid of For Years." They won't sell for a dime on eBay, my friends don't want 'em - I can't even get bums on the street to take 'em!

Since no one guessed correctly, that means no one gets the fabulous prize: all five of these lousy CDs. Hmmm, now that I think about it, maybe that's why no one guessed correctly. Maybe word leaked out about the prize. Oh well. Back in the closet you go, CDs!

Next week? Potpourri. It's the opposite of what happened this week; you know the theme, but not the albums. Oh, see how I change it up on you? I'm like Machiavelli. Don't ask me to explain that statement any further, because I can't.
