      Dave Grohl is the man

      • r@f

        He totally looks like the drummer from Nirvana.

        • paul


        • AmBush_Steve

          He's the Foo Fighters lead man. Don't you know nuttin?

    • Amigo

      Daves all like, don't worry about it guys, relax I'm already rich as fuck I don't care.

    • DaddyD

      Great musician. Poor logician.

    • Spencer_on_Fire

      Great words by a great man

    • TiminPhx

      That's why he drives a 2005 Toyota and lives in an apartment. Oh wait, no he doesn't.

      He's a rich fucker (which is fine, he earned it) posing as some self-righteous man of the people.

      Phony as a cover band.

      • r@f

        That is why he is fine with it. Some people are too greedy, they want ALL the money they can get. Like he said, if you are putting out a GREAT album (like Adele, Eminem or whoever) people will buy it. And you wont have to worry about other people sharing it.

        • Jason

          Plus, the artists make more money touring than from record sales. So why would they NOT want everyone to be able to listen to their music and become fans who will go to concerts?

          • Original chiver

            its not really the musicians but the record companies that have them under contract who get all pissy

          • Vin Skully

            Maybe thats because people can so easily not pay for their music. If you took away the ability to get a song free, sales would increase. Piracy hurts the small musicians more than the big ones. It's why good bands that are more of a risk are less likely to get signed than ones that will more easily make money but sound generic.

            I'm not against it completely. But people should buy albums and songs they actually enjoy listening to, or at least merch from the band; especially if its a band that isn't big yet.

        • Internet Tough Guy

          It's not about all the money they can get, it's about all the money they earned. It's no different than video game or movie piracy–it is theft.

          • joel

            It is different considering how much money goes into making a movie or video game, but i could record a song right now and try to sell it

            • Amigo

              ok go record your little song on your fucking laptop and try to sell it, you won't…. do you know how much good recording gear costs? or a decent instrument or how much studio time is/mixing/mastering. Or how expensive it is to tour as a musician, or how little you get paid off the bat… etc

              It's not as easy or as cheap as you think, not even close. plus a song is what 99 cents, when a video game runs a good $60+ not to mention more people buy video games as opposed to stealing them,

              please don't talk about stuff you know nothing about

    • that_ALBANIAN_guy


      Seriously, why are you guys always out of stock?

      • http://www.mcraephotography.ca McRaePhoto

        Because the 'want' of the consumer keeps them coming back for MOAR!!!! If they always have stock you wouldn't be so excited to see a fellow Chiver rocking the St. Paddy's KCCO at the local watering hole in a few weeks.

    #15 he looks a lot like the drummer from Nirvana…

    • Underbaker

      I thought it was the singer from The Foo Fighters? 😉

      • The_Dood

        No, he's the guy that did the drums on Queens of the Stoneage's Songs for the Deaf. Duh.

        • Randazzle

          No, You're thinking of the guy who played drums on the Tenacious D album

          • The_Dood

            No, I'm thinking of the guy that mans the skins for Them Crooked Vultures.
            (this could really go on all day)

      • The_Dood

        Actually… If you're referring to their first album, he was the singer, bassist, guitarist, and drummer on everything except the guitar on one track.

    • HUH?

      no, the nirvana drummer is much younger.

  • wisemx

    Cool post 🙂

    • CaptainInsano

      I agree, I'm not big on inspirational quotes but these were all pretty cool

        Nobody's judging a book by its movie, dear. We read it and all agree it sucks ass. Even Stephen King read it and said Stephanie Meyer doesn't know how to write.

        There's a reason it was rejected 16x before finally being published. Hahahahahaha

        • Alex

          That's not a quote from Stephen King. It comes from someone called Robin Browne. It has since been attributed to King and spread like wildfire. And no, I haven't read Twilight, but I know it sucks.

          • Marz

            I thought it was Andrew Frutal no? Regardless,its absolutely true.

      • Cantaloupe

        Let's judge a book by numbers then.

        Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone:
        Interest level – Grade 4
        Reading level – 5.3

        Interest level – Grade 9
        Reading level – 4.4

        So Harry Potter is a book about magic 5th graders, written at a 5th grade level. Twilight is a book about a girl who wants to be banged by a vampire written at a 4th grade level. Do you see the magnitude of the problem yet? Actually, I guess you won't, since you read at a 4th grade level.

      And the dark tower is about quitting while you're ahead.

  • Damian

    People who need this kind of inspiration, women, fat depressed losers and anyone who can’t think for themselves. Listen some people are ugly and will never be a model or actor, no matter how hard they try. So instead of false dreams live realistically and productively. Oh and Twilight is the worst thing to happen to America since 9/11.

    • fignewton

      ?????? Your beliefs modify your behavior…

      • sadman

        Most cults modify their beliefs to fit their behavior. Religion is the most frequently used excuse for justifying the socially unacceptable things like polygamy (just ask Mohammad or Joseph Smith).

      • Tebow

        Explain millions of people complaining about politics, pollution, poverty, religion, and unemployment on message boards and never actively doing anything about anything.

  • Chris

    #15 Dave Grohl FTW!!

    • Falthor

      Kid Rock said pretty much the same thing but made some half assed comment about being rich as well that made me want to shoot him.

  • Steve

  • Primo


    *sigh* I read it in Will Smith's voice.:$

    • HUH?

      interesting, i never saw the movie, so i read it in my own voice. wonder if that means anything other than the fact that no one but me probly gives a crap.

  • http://dinkus.blog.com Emzilla

    I work nights. 10PM-7AM, and I just got home (8 o'clock here!) and woke my boyfriend up to some earth-shaking good-morning baby sex! Still sitting on the edge of the bed, I opened the chive.com (my morning ritual) and BAM!! Surprise sex! ❤

    • Darth Yogurt

    • PedoBear

  • 6_Crack_rocks

    #24 Stephen King is the shit and Twilight is garbage

    • Jude

      if someone can tell Twilight is garbage, that someone is clearly one level above it

    • Master_Rahl

      The King has spoken, and he has confirmed what we all know to be true – Twilight is gay.

    • _maxPain_

      yup never the less,, that ''red head'' villain can suck me dry any time she wants
