No emo bullshit here. This is created for my rhetoric class, which is good because it gives me incentive to back my shit up after talking all kinds of trash about teenage asian girls' xangas. This will most likely not be any better. Probably worse.

I was too big of a wuss to ask you out (or for your name for that matter) and too busy pretending to be really interested in the game. On the extremely rare chance you remember mine, please say something as I'd like to buy you a drink.

Seeing as how 'Ye threw yet another rampage over meaningless awards, this new video for The Good Life drops at the right time. I, along with Big Lo, picked up Graduation today like many others according to the cashier girl at Target. As much as I download music I felt like Kanye West is one of the few artists on a major scale that give a shit and thus worth supporting. His tantrums and bitch-fits and egomania might annoy many, but to me, they show that he cares about his craft. Comparing him to 50 Cent is ridiculous as they're completely different people with different goals and priorities.
The Good Life is my favorite song on Graduation for many reasons. The obvious being the wall of synths, MJ sample and of course the ubiquitous T-Pain. But the subject matter is one of the few songs on the album that actually translates to what 'Ye has been hyping up as 'stadium status' material. The rush of joy that overwhelms this song is guaranteed to lift any deflated spirits and get heads bobbin'.
As far as the video, So Me did the art. He also did Justice's D.A.N.C.E. vid, which really should have won video of the year. I like the look, especially when Pain and 'Ye are dancing horribly out of sync.
And of course, the model.
Congratulations Kanye West: on finding the hottest video girl ever and more importantly, for giving a shit.

Starting to look like something again, ain't it? I sure hope so. Not one to stay stuck in nostalgia, but the Dream Team of yore was truly a memorable moment in sports. MJ, Magic, Chuck, Bird all banding together for country, for pride and most of all: to let the rest of the world know that they ain't shit.
Something went wrong between the highlight reels and the bitter taste of bronze. But hopefully that is being reversed in the form of the new Team USA. And what do you know, salvation seems to come in the form of The Most Famous Man Ever Named After A Steak.
The best is the best. Ain't no other way around it. This is gonna be fun.

would you trust this guy?
So tonight I decided to ask my parents about a question that weighs heavily on my mind: Who do you trust less?
My mother gave a very politically correct answer at first: 'that depends on the person, I'd have to meet them first. Their religion does not dictate their trustworthiness.'
But then she said... 'but I don't trust Jews much.'
My dad asked her how she could not trust Jews when she believes in the Bible.
Her reply: 'the Jews don't have that much to do with the Bible.'
Mistaken theological facts or not, she does have a point. A common thread throughout the world's different cultures is the fact that none of them particularly trust the juden. You'd think that Chinese people, who share such a strong similarity to the juden's financial handling skills, would be more understanding of god's chosen people. Wrong.
So the question is this: can the whole world seriously be drinking the same flavor of haterade for this many millennia?

AND SINCE WHEN DID IT BECOME LAW TO HAVE TO TREAT ANIMALS HUMANELY? DOES NOBODY SEE THE CONTRADICTION IN THAT? A FEDERAL LAW THAT FORCES HUMANS TO TREAT ANIMALS BETTER THAN THEY TREAT THEMSELVES. WTF? HE DIDN'T EVEN RAPE ANY WHITE GIRLS!

Kanye is straight stuntin' on niggas. Jean vest and all. What other moron/genius spends 3 months searching the earth up and down for a pair of window blind aviators?
AND he has Cassie, the hottest racially indeterminate slut to put out a #1 single about slurping cock, grindin' it out without no guest spot or nothin'. 'Bitch, just stand there and look pretty.' True indeed.
I'm also going to take the time to express my absolute love for half-and-halfs aka mulattos aka mutts (c) the LV don. I'm not sure what it is, but somehow when two horny people of different shades get to churning out babies the whole is ALWAYS greater than the sum of its parts.
But you already knew that.

Summer Mix 2007 aka a bunch of songs I've been listening to for the past two weeks.
and of course Diddy, The King of All Jigs.
New tweaked version, still not satisfied but whatever. No more Blur or Diddy. But the picture stays. Too awesome.
Didn't know where to put this in the mix. Not that it matters now that I think about it. Best part is how Justice correctly chooses the most important message to emphasize in the remix.

Never one to shy away from grand statements, the Pied Piper recently claimed to place himself among the greatest black men ever. Ali, MLK, Malcolm - and Arruh. Some of you might be scratching your heads wondering wtf has gotten into the world's greatest living hitmaker/preteen fucker.
But can you doubt someone who records you and your mama and your sister's favorite hits while wearing a tall white tee with his own face singing cheaply ironed on? I sure won't.
As for the looming piss-on-you case, there's really not a problem. Put it like this: how many more people stand to benefit from Mr. Showbiz staying out of jail? If a couple girls get it in the eye so Kells can create bonafide hits for the masses, so be it. Collateral damage. Art requires sacrifice.
I uploaded this amazing video of R. showing his patriotic side two years ago. It's gotten 50000+ views now and I'm sure everyone is as moved as I am. If this doesn't make you proud to be an American, you might as well go deep throat Bin Laden. Traitors.

What more can he say?
The Best Player In The NBA is playing like everything depends on it. Kinda like 200 million dollars or so depended on it. I love Kobe for all the determination and skizzillz he brings to the game. It makes me wish I watched every Lakers game to catch this shit in action. But honestly, it's just too much of a coincidence that he goes on a tear as the news that his jersey is outselling the biggest Chinaman on earth IN CHINA, as well as the fact that his shoe contract with Nike is running out. What better way to pump up endorsement values than averaging 55 a game in the past three?
Kobe Bryant is about to be the most BAAAALLLLLLLIIIIIINNNN' Chinaman.

at first i was amazed to find a clear cut example of a person's creative output literally regressing before my eyes. but then i realized that she just looks really hawt and i would like to give her the secks. she even looked good as a ginger! i dont think it would have been as hawt if the song was anything better than regurgitated teen pop circa 2000. it reminds me of a while ago when britney still had hair. ahh... nostalgia.

Joe Rogan, meathead extraordinaire, confronts Carlos Mencia, unfunny not-really-a-beaner, about stealing material. As much as I hate Joe Rogan for being the guy that bears the torch for meatheads everywhere, Carlos Mencia is clearly the worse human being here. He's not funny, he just yells all the time, and to top it off he steals all his jokes. And he's not even mexican. Yet he got famous telling beaner jokes.
Some people have no shame.

Cam's recent scuffle with Cuuuuurtiiiis brings back some old times. I don't know if Killa is getting hungry again, or is he just self-delusional enough to believe the things that he says. But I applaud his total commitment to doing whatever the hell he wants.
This is as American as McDonald's and guns.

Damn, Beyonce IS a good actress.
I took the liberty of 'sampling' the new Fall Out Boy album last night and it is much better than what I thought it was going to be. If for nothing, they are consistent. You get the same infectious choruses, the same nonsensical song titles, the same unintelligible singing, and the self-referential, borderline retarded lyrics. That list might read like a bunch of qualities you don't want in a band, but this time it's OK. It's called a 'niche'.
I, for one, can't fathom how I used to take the lyrics so close to heart. All the horribly conceived metaphors that honestly don't really make sense unless you're in high school. I put them up on in my AIM profile and had away message wars of sorts with girls that I were too scared to say directly. Does it get more pathetic than that? I doubt it. The irony now is that for how much those lyrics meant to me back then, half the time I had to look them up cause I couldn't understand what the fat singer was saying. Enunciation was not part of the production process. Again, it's their niche.
Despite all that, applause is due for this band because now that I have gained some perspective and distance to where I can just listen with no emotional attachment, they still write some damn good tunes. Those choruses just soar with no end in sight. The instrumentation is tight and well orchestrated and executed. Some new r&b arrangements even show up, probably thanks to Babyface. Bashing Fall Out Boy isn't even hip anymore, they found what they're good at and became the best at it. I'll take a Fall Out Boy single repeatedly bashed into my skull over a John Mellencamp Chevy ad about our country any day of the week.

Fat Joe - Make It Rain (remix ft. R Kelly, Lil' Wayne, T.I., Baby, Rick Ross).mp3
I struggle to put into words how ridiculous it is to hear this remix. It blows my mind in every way possible, both ironic and pure. Kels' verse is obviously the highlight of the whole song. It is so ridiculous that I seriously thought my head was going to explode. Who else could come up with such a retarded verse that so blatantly links to his infamous need to 'piss on you'? I can't figure out whether it's done in parody and humor or if he actually ignored the obvious connections. The passion and intensity he puts into making it 'rain on them hoooooooooes' points to the latter. Either way it's still good.
R Kelly overshadows the rest of the guys, even T.I., who comes with the same double time flow he surprised everyone with on 'I'm Talkin to You'. It's still impressive, maybe even more so because I kind of understand what he's saying this time around.
Anyways, I'm more amazed by this song every time I press replay (which is like the 47th time tonight already). It somehow managed to upstage the original while being a completely parody of itself. Color me impressed.

I feel like an old ass motherfucker talking about 'the old days'. But for christ's sake it's been 11 years. All I'm left with now is Deion slurring about gators and library cards to remind myself the 'boys used to be a powerhouse. Shit's embarrassing. I mean, I don't really expect the glory days all over again, but come on. It isn't even all Tony Homo's fault either. We wouldn't have to be in that situation if TG's dumb ass held on to the ball. I couldn't believe I was in a room with 10 other guys praying that we would be awarded a safety. A SAFETY! So many things went wrong and we were still in the lead only to fuck it up as only the Dallas Cowboys know how.
