Posting about Genesis had two unexpected side-effects: arousing controversy and bringing Erik Martin out of a year-long posting hibernation. I am therefore not sorry for having posted about Genesis nor for pointing out how much they blow.

But I have an aversion to dissention. I wish to bring different peoples together in harmony. That is why I am now posting a video of Heino, the German version of….well, I'm not sure there is anything comparable in any other culture.

It is like a David Hasselhoff song, only much worse. Unless it is an elaborate joke that I just don't get.

    Sorry to report, but Heino is an actual musician who was popular in the 1960s and 70s. He's a star in what the Germans (somewhat creepily) call Volksmusik, or folk music. It's also safe to say that nobody under fifty listens to him without a heavy dose of irony. Perhaps you could call him the German Kenny Rogers. The glasses are, at least according to Wikipedia auf Deutsch, legit – his right eye is apparently not kosher.

    That's awesome. I don't know why these guys don't rule the world. Oh right, the nations of the earth united to keep that from happening. Well that makes sense.
