That's Talking Seattle Grunge Rock Blues, and I'm not sure why it was in my head yesterday, but I'm glad it was because while the comments on this blog are always good, Rusty Webb nailed it with his story of acoustical weddings gone wrong:
I used to play guitar at weddings, and after forgetting a particular piece I was performing for the bride during her march down the isle (it was supposed to be, Jesu, Joy of Man's Desire, by J.S. Bach) I totally drew a blank halfway through her march and so I started playing Every Rose has it's Thorn, by Poison. Seriously, she marched down the isle while folks were humming Bret Michaels lyrics under their breath.
Every since that fateful day I have refused to play versions of anything at any time. I found I don't perform that well under pressure. So I choose to not perform at all.
So much at work in that comment! Not only did it make me laugh, it also made me hum Every Rose Has It's Thorn AND it called to mind the classic Seinfeld episode:
For that, I award Rusty the 100 points; nobody got it right, per se (Andrew was closest) but Rusty's story was worth 100 points. Besides, Andrew got the Kurosawa influence correct.
Today's question, question 75! Worth 50 points! is as follows:
What thing from Star Wars actually got its name from an Edgar Rice Burroughs creation (and what was the Burroughs creation?)
Last commenter gets 40 points again. And, to close out the post with another video:

So now you know a guy who's married to a girl who knows someone who once cried on an MTV video.
