We're Overrated and Not Even Knowin'

So I got a request from my boy Redman to really let the people know who is getting way too much unwarranted hype these days. The people and things on the list range from extremely feeble to strongly mediocre and I'll talk about them when I get a chance. So here it is no particular order...

1) The Beatles
2) Steve Jobs
3) People who put clothes on their pets (Jesus already gave them clothes, it's called FUR)
4) Amy [Wino]house
5) Subway Jared, Jared Leto (Matter of fact, are there any good Jareds? Or is that one of those names destined for mediocrity the way girls named Mercedes and Porsche is destined for scripperhood?)
6) Al Gore (you're only impressing stupid people with your huge graphs)
7) Thoughtless tattoos (is that still going to be cool in 2 days?)
8) Arizona drivers, especially in the rain
9) RoboPhoto (photo radar, what a scam)

10) Come correct son, or you'll see yourself on here

Diddy Reloaded

If anyone has a chance, ABC is showing its remake of A Raisin in the Sun starring Sean "Diddy" Combs aka The Empire aka I Run New York. He's no Poitier but I guess it did decent at Sundance and it has received some pretty decent pub. It might be worth giving it a run even if you aren't a Combs fan. Besides, there are two Tony winners among the cast.

I mean, just look at the picture, everyone else looks like they're posing for a TV publicity shot. Diddy looks he's thuggin' an album cover or a music video. He looks like he's about 4 seconds from yelling "uh huh, uh huh, yea...Bad Boy Forever!" I guess that's what happens after you hear you're Hollywood Walk of Fame game has popped off.

Maybe check it out, 2/25/08, 8/7central, ABC. If I didn't have my 'killing me softly [with words]' I would probably check it out. I hate you International Management. Out.

Snitchin isn't just a hobby

I figured I'd touch on the since the whole Clemens Congress thing has really taken on a life of its own. Real talk, when did Snitching pass baseball and football as America's favorite national past-time?!?!

Allow me to preface the following by saying I don't condone the acts that have these people caught up or in prison. So for me, snitching really hit that primetime, big-time, showtime, Hollywood status with the whole Mike Vick thing. Don't get it twisted, I don't think it's right what they did to the dogs but really? This guy has been setting you guys up, with a house, money, he basically gave you guys money in order for you guys to make money, and you guys repay him with an 18 month sentence? Wow, great way to pay him back.

However, on the other hand, I have to give props to Clemens. Regardless of whether he did it or not, this cat is COLD in the courtroom. I saw some footage and he is steadfast in that courtroom, he stood in the pocket like Bradshaw, he didn't back down at all to those clowns. If you're going to lie, at least believe your own lie and stick to it. Mark McGwire definitely should've taken some notes. Hey Mark, if you lie, we might believe, if you tell the truth, we will believe you, if you say "let's not focus on the past," yeah, that means you're guilty.

Food for thought: If Lil' Kim can do time for not snitching, why can't you?

Also, if you guys get a chance, definitely check out Shepard Smith from The Fox Report with Shepard Smith. This guy is a newscaster for Fox, he knows his stuff, he calls it like it is, no bull, and he's pretty hilarious. Imagine Jim Rome doing national news. During the Clemens coverage there was some guy in the courtroom lobby that was just in the way of all the cameras and cameramen. Shep said something to the effect of, "who is this guy making big-time deals and getting in the way of our shot?" And the other guy said, "I have no idea, I'd break his legs if I could Shep."

Yeah...I guess you had to see it.

Amy Winehouse is more overrated than The Beatles

I said, no, no, nooo...

Honestly? 5 Grammy Awards? Do they just give 'em out nowadays?

Daniel, I know Reuters sucks because they mention Amy Winehouse in the same sentence as Lauryn Hill.

How I know Amy Winehouse is weak
1) She's a multi-millionaire and yet she can't get
into the U.S. legally. I have $124 and I'm here

2) She's a multi-millionaire and her husband is in
jail, which is cool if you're in the mob, she
unfortunately, is not.

3) She's a multi-millionaire and she smokes crack.
What's the deal with smoking crack? Umm, hasn't anyone
told her that rich people snort coke? People like Shifty from Crazytown smoke crack (don't know who he is? exactly.)

4) Does she think she's good-looking? Cyndi Lauper
gives her a run for her money.

Am I the only one that finds it ironic that her hit song about NOT going to rehab completely fell on its face? Amy, no matter how many times you say "No, no, no..." that's not coming true.

Who isn't blogging nowadays?

Not me! I guess I'm going to join the masses and see what's really good with all the blogging...

Stay updated, I'll let you know a bit about life.
