Originally posted by DJ RanThe only problem with Veruca Salt was they had one rip roaring fantastic rock song ("Seether" for you file sharers) and the rest of that debut album was just junk. I couldn't listen to them again.
The worst part of that was that they kept referencing the song in all their other singles (a-HEM, "Volcano Girls"...) Ah well, you ride it until it stops working, I guess.

Which Tori Amos songs do you have in mind? I think "Daisy Dead Petals" or "Spark" or "Yes Anastasia" might be effective.

11/19/02: In wrestling, sometimes you're the windshield, and sometimes you're the bug. (Courtesy of Jerry "The King" Lawler)...(Yes, I know RVD spoke last night...at length! Yes, I know it's the first time he's been given a microphone since No Mercy. But, infuriatingly enough, just as he started to talk to Shawn Michaels about how he'd inspired him, my phone rang. It was Andy, telling me how great it was that RVD was cutting a promo. As a result, I missed the whole beginning of what was said. If anyone can recall it for me, please let me know.)

10/7/02: Sorry, but this episode of Raw was abominable, so I flashed back to Raw one year ago (10/8/01): C'mon, drop the hostility! Seriously, everything's cool, man. (Rob Van Dam, Zen Master)
9/30/02: You're all worked up over nothing. You just need to chill. You're not even yourself. (Kudos to Raw for providing a 30-second RVD Zen Master promo! This was originally RVD to Kanyon on Raw, 9/24/01.)
9/23/02: You know, some people take peace of mind and confuse it with lack of passion. (Rob Van Dam, Zen Master)
9/16/02: Let me tell you something, man--anger is a negative energy--you need to shake that right now. (Rob Van Dam, Zen Master)

This has been your Raw Moment of Zen™. See you next week! Ellen

Actually, he was going out with both of them. Which is why Nina Gordon is no longer in Veruca Salt. Fortunately, the new version of the band sounds exactly like the old version or I'd have to kill Dave Grohl.
Oh wait, this is the wrestling board. Um... I have a fantasy character who uses Tori Amos music as his entrance theme. I might actually end up using him in a backyard (non-trash) wrestling video that some friends and I are thinking about putting together. There's something surreal about seeing a beatdown set to Tori Amos music.
I made a video in high school about beating the crap out of somebody set to "Everybody Have Fun" by Wang Chung.
You gotta go with the American Psycho New Wave violence.
In the name of good taste, I will no longer say anything about people who run wrestling websites and cats.
These Zenful entities definitely did put a smile on my face. A peaceful smile, indeed. I'd like to contribute one for the day... 11/28/02-- Positive energy is all around us. We have to train ourselves to be aware. RVD
**** 12/3/02: I had that match won. I was the new World Heavyweight Champion. And then Triple H showed up and ruined everything. As usual. (Courtesy of Rob Van Dam, Zen Master) [Forgive me...I'm still so excited about the direct contribution from RVD...and it happened to be extremely helpful for where I am spiritually! Thanks again, Rob!]
The only problem I have is he grabbed Barbarian too soon. The chokeslam should have been for Sullivan preferably when he was fighting Hogan. The turn was out of nowhere but the execution was a little telegraphed.
