The Pick of Destiny


Tenacious D
The Pick of Destiny
(Epic)
Like the movie, the album offers the odd jab of the madcap but fails to sustain the highs. This could be the moment obscenity became boring, proof of laziness. Jack Black’s repeated use of “fuck” irritates early on and never lets up, rendering most songs unplayable on the air and stripping them of legitimacy. Black and Kyle Gass are a tight team musically and decent guitarists. The guest stars, particu- larly Dave Grohl on “Beelzeboss (The Final Showdown),” save the album. If Black had learned a few new adjectives or shown a gram of subtlety, the result might have offered more than a bloated ripoff of a 15-year-old sketch from Kids in the Hall.

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
