Vick makes me Sick

So a news story that i waited to unfold to post my opinions is the Micheal Vick dog fighting thing. I usually wait till all info is out there before i state how i feel on certain topics. I am a huge believer in animal rights, They can't speak for themselves so some people gotta do it for them, i know hippie talk, but still!
You know the idea of Dog fights, i won't lie are pretty bitching, two dogs just goin ape shit on each other, it has to be somewhat entertaining much like a boxing match. What drives me nuts is the fact he brutally killed dogs, hanging them with barbed wires, he had rape post to breed more dogs and that he really didn't feel remorse, until he got caught. In fact he blamed everyone else before he took any responsibility for his actions.
I was reading a paper the other day that stated that "Vick feels remorse, and for the most part we should all forgive and forget." That right there is the benefit of having a good publicist to spin stories in your favour. Had he not been caught, would he really have stopped, would he have put on this grade A regretful act...hell no he would still be doing it. I don't see how anyone can really forget this.
The only people who can forgive and forget are people paid to do so, we call the GMs.
At the end of the day, Vick is a talented QB in the NFL so like it or not as soon as he is free, many teams will be quick to dish out contracts, and at the end of the day he still makes more money than most of us will see in a lifetime....
the system works...
Screw Vick!

Umm ya so its kind of a big thing...

SO i guess I am not 20, what does that mean...Really to be honest, it just means that i am half way to 40, if this is how good the first half has been the second half can only be better, can't it? I don't know what to say, i mean i really don't care much for my birthday anymore, to me i woke up today and my first thought was to continue watching nip/tuck and not that it's my ya
in conclusion
Happy birthday to Me

50 vs Kanye......throw your Diamonds in the SKY!

So unless you have been living under a rock, or frankly don't pay much attention to music news, you had to hear about the 50 vs Kanye debate...

so here is the back story to this one, Kanye's album was supposed to drop on Sept 18th while 50's was supposed to drop on September 4th, but both moved their dates to Sept 11. Kanye's was moved due to the hype behind it, and 50's because, well i dont really know. When 50 realized they would be battling that week he gave the idea to BET to have a "presidential" debate over who is the better rapper, and which is the better album. Besides being the lamest idea ever, for some reason 50 and BET loved the idea, when the asked Kanye what he thought of the idea...he said simply this.

"When I heard that thing about the debate, I thought that was the stupidest thing. When my albums drops and 50's album drops, you're gonna get a lot of good music at the same time"
Clearly this media hype attempt by 50 was shut down, but that didn't stop him from making one last attempt for media attention. 50 announced if Kanye's album out sells his he would "Retire" from music... the exact quote is
"Let's raise the stakes. If Kanye West sells more records than 50 Cent on September 11, I'll no longer write music. I'll write music and work with my other artists, but I won't put out any more solo albums."
Besides being the stupidest thing i ever heard, this made me only want the Kanye album more. Its like buying a bottle of pepsi you really want, and then realizing if you drink the pepsi you already want you get a free car...
So the retirement of 50 is in an essence a free car..and the cd is a bottle of Pepsi, or coke if you prefer that.
September 11th i will be goin out and buying a cd, and it will not be 50's...I ask that you all do the same and actually just go out and get Kanye's if you haven't heard his first 2 singles, they are both well made and frankly pushing boundaries in the hip hop genre, so you gotta just think how the album will be. I understand its free to download but this CD is more than a CD it has someone's career on the line. So lets fuckin end 50's CAREER!!!

Warped Disaster

So this Sunday that is approaching is the Warped Tour, in Montreal. Some of the bands that i really wanted to see where Coheed and Cambria, New Found Glory, The Starting Line.etc unfortunately due to uncontrollable reasons, i shall not be attending this year. In all honesty the Line-up isn't that spectacular, its good but a lot of these new-age punkers such as Ten Second Epic, are bands that i am not into. In fact i really haven't gone out of my way to check out a punk band in a while, simply due to the fact that the music is becoming so Formulaic. This is something that really has been bothering me, no band is really breaking the boundaries, but rather producing very radio friendly hits that they know will get played. Say what you will about, Fall out boy or Panic! At The Disco, but look at the music in their songs, they are incorporating a large range of instruments and more orchestrating rather than very repetitive bass, drum, guitar under some repetitive hook.
I am not saying these bands are not good, or that these bands need to be stopped, i am more on the side that music is plateauing and due to the plateau such songs as Umbrella can be number 1 hits, while much better music is out there..
