The weirdness that is

I love Wikipedia. If it weren't for the most awesomest user-edited encyclopedia in the world, I wouldn't know things like these...

Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo is a linguistically correct sentence.

There have been hundreds of fictional US presidents including my favorite.

Some teams at the University of Hawaii (listed as Hawai'i) are still the Rainbow Warriors.

Prince has a lot of pseudonyms.

Only five albums were in the #1 spot in 1984.

Simon & Garfunkle were - I think - the last act to replace themselves on the Billboard #1 album chart.

The Monkees owned 1967.

Neil Young was not inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame three times like I'd thought. Apparently it's just CSN not CSN&Y in there.

"Rainbow Connection" was ripped off in 1979.

Bryan Derksen liked Wikipedia, too.

my favorite part, for the simon and garfunkel one. The original and final album that was #1 was "Bookends."

You can't make that up

Sorry. Correction. There were FIVE #1 albums of 1984. Damn you for forgetting Huey Lewis & the News's epic "Sports". For one week, it was the Heart of Rock n Roll.

Haha, thank you for the welcome. I'm still not really sure what I want to do with it, but I guess the beauty is that it doesn't really matter

I'm not so sure about that, Calen...The Monkees had a pretty good year.

Joey - Bookends is a perfect closer album, agreed.

I do stand corrected, G...Sports was a hell of an album. Lucky for us, the heart of rock and roll is still beatin'...in Cleveland.
