Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

07/20/2005: Oh the humanity!!!!

Oh the horror!!!

From Anthony Rickey at Three Years of Hell...:

Right, I've not had a lot of sleep, but I just turned on one of these European MTV knock-offs and found out that there's a Nelly/Tim McGraw duet on the tube. For a second, I thought I was hallucinating from lack of sleep.

I take it this has been around for a while, but it's been off my radar screen. What were they thinking? And how long has this been around?
If you were drawing up a list of musical acts that I'm not going to listen to before hell freezes over, the names of both Nelly (even though he is a fellow St. Louisan) and Tim McGraw would be very high on that list (as rap and country are two genres I actively avoid), so I have to confess that I'm the last person to answer Tony's question. But the very thought of a Nelly/Tim McGraw duet inspires me to steal a line from Lewis Black: Nelly and Tim McGraw are two acts that shouldn't be on the same stage together. Hell, Nelly and Tim McGraw are two acts which shouldn't be in the same state together.

Under the category of "things that make you go hmmmmmmm...." department, I see that normally more awesome than words can describe AllMusic Guide needs to get a few good proofreaders, factcheckers, or both. Under their entry for Nelly, the text claims that Nelly was born in St. Louis, in the biographical factoid listing at the left hand side of the page it claims that he was born in Dallas, Texas. Obviously, he couldn't have done both. I don't think....
