The original Ping was painfully written in Perl.

John Tesh

Here is the thing. John Tesh, former ET host and composer of the “NBA on NBC” theme, has a pretty big fanbase. I’m trying to figure out why. Any thoughts?

My guess: subliminal messages in the music.

I have a CD called "The John Tesh Project," though I had no idea who this character was. My roommates love him just because his music is so cheesily terrible. Of course, I'll be a fan of anyone courageous enough to name thier son Gib.

His theme for the cartoon Bobby's World was pretty great. A lot of people malign his music, but I'd bet few have really listened to it. However, I have heard that a lot of his recent output is in the "Contemporary Christian New Age" catergory, which is infinitely suspect.

He's a good musician to name drop as a joke, but he is actually quite talented. He did the themesong for NBA on NBC, which was a classic.



What is this then?
