Guest blogging=advanced?

Hi, Andrew Beaujon here, filling in for the remarkable Mr. Hartley as he works up the nerve to try to score weed from his busboys at Sandals (careful of the tall one; he's a narc). I'd like to thank Jason for trusting me with his blog for this week, and I hope I can do a tenth a good of a job as him in helping us all work toward a theory of cultural advancement.

In that spirit, I'd like to start off with a list of people I suspect may be advanced, even if Jason might not agree.

  • Darius Rucker

    • Hootie's singer made a solo album called The Return of Mongo Slade. Making an album about the return of a character who never existed is incredibly advanced. Also although he seems to have a very clear idea of what his audience expects of him otherwise, the press release for the new Hootie album describes his voice as the band's "secret weapon." Which is promising.

  • Fred Durst

    • Is still known as a "rocker" even though no one seems interested in his "rock band" at this point (cf. Henry Rollins, Courtney Love)
    • Appeared on a miniseries
    • Really embraced MP3 technology
    • The track listing for Limp Bizkit's most recent album, with the echt advanced title The Unquestionable Truth Pt. 1 (there's a Pt. 2 of The Truth?), is as follows:
      "The Propaganda"
      "The Truth"
      "The Priest"
      "The Key"
      "The Channel"
      "The Story"
      "The Surrender"

  • R.Kelly

    • Don't think this one needs further explanation

I look forward to reading your comments. Especially Bob's.
