It's Like Waterworld, Only It's Music
My ears! The goggles do nothing! What the hell is NASCAR thinking? Normally we wouldn't bother writing a post about NASCAR but something should probably be said about Kevin Costner signing on with them to provide music and personal appearances.
Bitten and Bound reports that Costner's band Modern West will be featured on NASCAR.com and presumably this means NASCAR broadcasts as well. They must want to drive people to Formula 1. You think we're being too harsh? You be the judge.
I'll suffer through The Postman before I listen to any more of this. I may not know country music but I know bad music is like pornography. I may not be able to tell you what it is but I know it when I hear it. I'd tell Costner to stick to acting but we'd still lose. No one needs to be subjected to his movies if he's going to offer up crap like that Coast Guard movie with Aston Kutcher. Anyone see Dan Duquette lately? This smells like one of his personnel moves.
