Tom Green Makes No Impact With Me


*crickets*

That's how I've traditionally greeted Tom Green's zany brand of "humour." He sucks, basically. So when I got a copy of his new "hip hop" CD Prepare For Impact, I seriously thought about tossing it without a listen. But curiosity ultimately got the better of me. I wanted to know if the former MC Bones of the Juno-nominated (!?!) Organized Rhyme crew had improved his flow.

I thought it would be bad -- but it's worse than bad. It's downright awful. And once you get past gonzo songs like (the admittedly smirk-worthy) My Bum Is On Ya Lips and the bland production (EZ Mike aka Mike Simpson of the Dust Brothers) you're left wondering what's the point. Judging from the limited press he got for a scheduled appearance at a downtown Hooters this past Friday, I'm assuming many were wondering the same thing too.

I can't even tell if his rap record supposed to be a parody or just juvenile -- which is pretty much how I feel about the crazy Canuck himself. Don't waste your time.
