Rocks Off watches a lot of lovable children's characters singing endless cheerful songs about the basic virtues that make up the best of humanity. And not because we smoke a bowl each day, it's to appease our 10-month-old empress. And most of the time, programs like Yo Gabba Gabba are actually fun and fairly cool. But you can only watch so much of it before you really, really want to care and share a gun to your head.
Until now, we would just cure this feeling by walking over to the computer and watching the uncensored version of the "Carving the Giant" video by Gorgoroth. Naked chicks, fire, and crucifixions will fix most things.
Now we just watch this video of Vinnie Violin from Australian kids phenomenon Hello Music Land falling off the stage over and over and over again.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
