And that reminds me of my list of things which are under-rated:
Ballboy - this band deserves to be better known outside of Scotland and Germany (which seem to be the only places they tour). They have some of the most imaginative song titles ever, and some killer songs. Here's "The art of kissing" mp3 and some lyrics from same:
And you taught me how to kiss / while your husband had his bit / with a younger, fitter lover / on the golf course in a bunker
And they say romance is dead
Oatmeal - this has to be one of the most satisfying and toothsome foodstuffs in existence. There's nothing like an oatmeal cookie made with large flake oats so that you can actually taste them, or a steaming bowl of oatmeal on a cold morning. It's great in muffins, and you can even use it as a thickener.
And oatmeal is not just for sweet stuff either - oh no! My mom used to make us oatmeal soup sometimes and it was guuud.
Oatmeal deserves a lot more respect.
Robert Downie Jr - in my opinion, one of the most under-rated actors around. Every film that I have seen him in lately just sparkles from his performances. Check out Kiss Kiss Bang Bang or A Scanner Darkly. I, for one, am really glad that he has cleaned up his act.
I originally had a lot more items on my list of things which are under-rated, but I have forgotten them.
Meh, a good memory is over-rated anyway.
