Dear Jack Black: Yeah? Well, you're short.
Today I'm teaching myself the bassline to Velvet Underground's Femme Fatale.
Google News search: Keanu.
Find Keanu in The Picture of Everything - Thanks, Rhonda.

And to think I liked Jack Black in Orange County....ARGGHHH!!! Making fun of Keanu was a big no no!
So, How does it play? Bet it's a real sweetheart.
It's wonderful. The real test will be tonight when I play through Dave's rig.
...how pathetic this guy is! What's Keanu done to him?
...oh, and lots of fun with all the good basslines that are out there, waiting just for you!
Ah, screw Jack Black. He only has one shtick, and he's pretty much played it out. I've always found him f*cking annoying, and this doesn't help. I can't get away from the man. On the TV, at the movies, in magazines. Always staring at me with his big bug eyes and that one wonky eyebrow tilted. The guy would attend the opening of a napkin, I swear.
So to recap: Jack Black? Shut up.
I love that picture of everything!
Hi , I'm Dutch so i didn't really understand what Kack Black meant with that interview. Can someone explain it to me?
Oh ahahah.. of course what i meant was J-A-C-K Black. But Kack sounds nice too...:-)
Hells Bells - too cool.
That's gonna take me ages to find...
Well, I have heard a bunch of Tenacious D's stuff and Black better not make fun--he can't exactly sing with the best of them either...(and alsmot all of his songs are just comedic kindsa things: nothing like the lyrics from Dogstar) ...he can play guitar and be funny but that's about it. I don't think anyone could ever see him in *any* serious roles. On the other hand, Keanu plays bass well, especially for one who is self taught, and can be seen performing comedy, drama and all things in between (though critics nitpick him anyway)...
Face it: it's just another "Reevesian Review"...you just have to let it go...
Shanice, it was just Jack being snarky about Keanu and Dogstar.
Someone needs to take his ass to a becky show, probably more his style.
Hey, fellow-Dutchie! *waves*
Hij gebruikt Keanu's band 'Dogstar' als een voorbeeld van slechte muziek, de *hufter*!
Gewoon een beetje jaloers, denk ik :-)
Personally, I have never heard of Mr. Black, he has no following whatsoever in *my* part of the world. Keanu does. (Hence the invasion of Dutch girls here lately). He also looks a bit like a slithering, slimey slug. And he probably reeks. Case closed.
Have fun tonight with the guys tonight babe! :-)
I'm sure you will blow them away with your thundering licks, impecable timing, cool stance and general *tough but cute rock-girly* attitude :-)
*cough* ... & of course the *double* 'tonight' was deliberate, I meant to give the sentence a rhytmical 'bass-line' effect ;-)
Jack Black was just being Jack Black. And also, he's fat!
Anyone willing to give a hint about Keanu's whereabouts in that picture? My eyes are so tired today that I don't think I would ever find him!!
Glad your doing well with your bass playing Krix and I totally agree with what Julie! said....
(I'm sure you will blow them away with your thundering licks, impecable timing, cool stance and general *tough but cute rock-girly* attitude)
and I wanna see some pics and hear some audioblogs of this mustang sally girl
does that bug you?
ah-ha! I've loathed that man from the moment I first laid eyes on him. I feel all..vidicated or something. ;)
February, Krix. VEGAS, baby. VEGAS!
The picture of everything: I think there's a "key" to click on, if you scroll to the bottom. But that would ruin all the fun, yes? I didn't find Keanu, but I think I saw Krix at the base of the blue leg of the transformer that has a blue leg and a yellow leg. A beautiful woman with red hair?
As for Jack Black, I know nothing of him or Tenacious D apart from what I've read in EW but he grossed me out completely with that stupid MTV Two Towers skit they did last year, so this only confirms the bad feelings I have about him.
And to think I almost rented School of Rock... I won't give him that 1 cent or whatever he gets from each rental.
Jack should talk. At least Keanu doesn't turn every movie he's in into a commercial for his band. I'm sick of Tenacious D.
That picture was from the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma CA in June 2001. Here's link to a kind of a snarky article, but some more nice pics (no ID on the photog there either)

I was lucky enough to be at this show man it was so much fun!!!!! I got some pics also but not as close as this one.
Lots of Love
If you say "Keanu" in Italy, you'll neither need to mention a surname, or to say what he is and has done: everybody knows you're talking of The Only and Original One. If you say Jack, and that add Black, and then you say he's a rocker, and also an actor, and you name the band he's in, and all their songs, and the movies he's been in, well 99,9% you'll get: "Never heard of" as an answer. If you want to try with respective pictures, especially with women (well, also a few men, ;-) you'll get dribbling in the former case, and puking in the other...
Thanks for the hint baked nudel! :-) I really was too tired to be looking at that yesterday. I did come across Bill & Ted, but I haven't looked any further.
OMG, I always hated Jack Black cauze I thought that he thought that he was funny. And then I saw Shallow Hal and I thought....oh he's a serious guy, I like him. And then I saw the extra's on that DVD of Shallow Hal and I hated him again. And now he said that of Keanu...I HAAAAAAAAAAATEEEEEEE HIM!
Keanu should take revenge. He is so much more famous then that Jack Black Loser. He has... POWER!! He should go to a premiere of a JB movie and then laugh loud when JB is TRYING to act. Or he should get an award for 'Best bass player' and then say in his speech that JB sucks( but a polite, sweet, humble and non arrogant person as Keanu would never evah do that!)
Okay, my frustration is gone...;-)
I'm so happy you received your bass.
Keanu is sincere, handsome, kind and strikes me as having an inner life worth having. As such, he is an easy target for those who possess none of those attributes. I would imagine he is a bit above such criticism as well.
Mr. Black could call me all the names in the book and I would be able to honestly ask, "And you are?" That is the benefit I site for largely ignoring pop culture. I don't expect I am missing much.
It's sickening that this guy would target Keanu (Dogstar)to rip apart. I guess people have heard that Keanu won't say anything back, but in this case I hope if Keanu runs into this ridiculous, poor excuse for an actor at the GGA, he smashes JB's face in.
I'm fairly sure Jack wasn't being serious here. He has, in the past, publicly given kudos to Keanu for this same thing ("because", he said, "I know how rough it is for me, and he's a bigger star than I probably ever will be."). This was a year or two ago, I think, so I'll be damned (har!) if I can find the article again.
It seems like he was just playing off the reporter's comments...which is, as Zen mentioned, "Jack Black being Jack Black."
Just a little food for thought in case we have a little bandwagon bashing going on here.
That's what I meant Mikey2. He makes fun of people a lot, but it's mostly just for fun.
Tone is so hard to convey in text. The title of this entry was all in good fun as well. I do actually find Jack pretty amusing sometimes, I loved him in High Fidelity.
Zen, I figured that's what you meant, but didn't want to assume anything. :)
Krixy, painfully true. Text is just too impersonal (even with copious emoticons) to get all of the nuances of language through...especially where humor is involved (BOY do I know this). I was fairly certain you were taking it all in jest, but some of the other comments here felt a little "unfair" to me.
Sorry for the wee hijacking here. I'll make it up to ya later. ;)
Hey all you people, shut the hell up Jack Black rules and Keanu you suck your such a poser trying to play the guitar i bet i could even beat you and i'm only 13! So yeah these are the standings, Jack Black will always win and Keanu will always lose because his i freaking retard i would say ohter stuff but no one wants to see Keanu cry, well wait i do. Whatever Keanu you sucked in Matrix and you'll always suck!!!!
Ah. Mr. Black must be so proud of his fanbase.
