i went to the Roots concert last Wednesday! video of them with Bun B!!!

So I saw The Legendary Roots Crew last week for the third time, and it was the shiznazzle. What set this shit off was that they brought out Bun B and he did his verse from "Int'l Players Anthem."
RIP Pimp C. Here's my video:

Professor Grif from Public Enemy was there also. I know, random, but apparently he brought his son for his birthday. Whatever the fuck he was doing in Houston is still a mystery.

So yea, Roots Crew fam.

Rolling Stone gives "The Dark Knight" an EXTREMELY positively glowing review!!!

So the first reviews of The Dark Knight are coming in, and I'm happy to say my nut has been busted.

Over at Rolling Stone, the usually harsh critic Peter Tarvish gave it a strong 3.5/4 stars (4's are reserved for Oscar fodder, although he does support a posthumous nod for Ledger). Don't read it if you want to avoid spoilers, however, here's the first paragraph:

Heads up: a thunderbolt is about to rip into the blanket of bland we call summer movies. The Dark Knight, director Christopher Nolan's absolute stunner of a follow-up to 2005's Batman Begins, is a potent provocation decked out as a comic-book movie. Feverish action? Check. Dazzling spectacle? Check. Devilish fun? Check. But Nolan is just warming up. There's something raw and elemental at work in this artfully imagined universe. Striking out from his Batman origin story, Nolan cuts through to a deeper dimension. Huh? Wha? How can a conflicted guy in a bat suit and a villain with a cracked, painted-on clown smile speak to the essentials of the human condition? Just hang on for a shock to the system. The Dark Knight creates a place where good and evil — expected to do battle — decide instead to get it on and dance. "I don't want to kill you," Heath Ledger's psycho Joker tells Christian Bale's stalwart Batman. "You complete me." Don't buy the tease. He means it.

Wowzies. And over at Ain't It Cool, some random lucky bastard go to see it, and again it does give some things away, but all you gotsta know is that it kicks fucking ass. Shwaeet.

wtf is wrong with Kanye West

Ok, Ye, wtf. I've been this dude's biggest fan and supporter forever, I remember seeing him being interviewed on MTV2's rap battle thing, rockin the Bill Gates Godfather tee, going to Best Buy in the rain with my mom to buy College Dropout the day it came out, and he inspired me to start making beats. And I've stuck with him through thick and thin, even looked past the Wayne dick-riding, and hyphy remix guest spots, but dude has lost his mind.

He recently posted on his blog defending Soulja Boy, AKA the dude who killed hip hop, and, amognst other things, calls him "real hip hop" and compares him to Nas. Now, after remembering how Ye used to furously rant about how complex his own shit was, and how "Jesus Walks" had hundreds of tracks of strings or whatever, to see him praise this lame bullshit has led me to two conclusions: either he is pulling the biggest prank ever, or rolling way too much X. MDMA.

Dude, come the fuck on. You go off the deep end, I ain't followin. Peace.

Shaggy vs. Sean Paul, pt. 1

Ok, let's settle this once and for all...


there's an old joke, uh...

Quote of the day.

"When I watch football, I'm not looking for belly laughs. I'm looking for the guys who used to call me fag in high school to get crippled."

- Michael Ian Black

the "softening of Michelle Obama"

Seriously, what's with all this talk of "softening" Michelle Obama's image? She's not Ernest Fucking Hemmingway.

Reality check: she's an intelligent, successful, and accomplished black woman, and a lot of people fear, and probably even loathe, that fact. But the truth is that women like that have become an archetype, and that particular caricature has been demonized time and again on reality shows. It's trash. So she went to an Ivy League school, became a lawyer, and is probably going to be the first lady. Oh yeah, and as George Carlin would put it, she "happens to be black." If all that's a reason to hate her, then guess what? She doesn't seem to be the one with the problem after all.

Maybe she is hard. That means she's tough, and in order to get the shit done like she has, you gotta be tough. So fuck 'em.

BREAKING NEWS: George Carlin dead at 71

It's like 1 in the morning, and apparently, according to the LA Times, legendary comedian George Carlin has died at the age of 71.

Dude was a counter-culture icon, pioneer, and his material broke ground for every generation of comedians after him.

I actually just saw his last stand up special recently, and although hilarious, there was something strange about seeing him, at his age and state, talk the way he did. It was very dark stuff. But knowing him, he'll probably be buried giving the bird.

He said "fuck you" til the end; too bad the world is now 1 badass less.

there's hope for the human race after all - "Get Smart" #1, "Love Guru" #4

Variety article here.

I guess people aren't as stupid as I thought.

Get Smart is projected to earn the top spot with an estimated $39 million, while the awfully juvenile and dismally reviewed Love Guru is set to finish 4th with only $14 mil.

In addition to this bomb, Entertainment Weekly wrote an article about Mike Myers that made him out to be this huge a-hole, but at the same time talked about how he's reached some sort of spiritual awakening. And yet he makes shit like this.

new details about "The Office" spinoff emerge

A new Variety article has revealed our first details of The Office spinoff.

First, they've made their first hire, Aziz Ansari, from MTV's sketch comedy show Human Giant. Dude is hilarious, and I can picture him fitting in perfectly in The Office's style of comedy. He's also guest starred in an episode of Flight of the Conchords. Cool beans.

Also, it appears that it won't be a spinoff in the traditional sense. It's unlikely that any of the characters on the current show will be on the spinoff. It might be a "planted spinoff," where the new characters on introduced on The Office in maybe an episode. It also might not be a spinoff at all, just a show in the "similar vein" of the current show.

They've also hired writers from Conan, South Park, and Everybody Loves Raymond.

The new show premiers in winter, and will air right after The Office.


and the verdict is...NOT GUILTY!!!

On all counts.

the hippest picture ever

I wanna vomit. And if you don't know who these two are, you suck and still probably listen to Blink-182 and Eminem, huh?

badass of the day - Subcomandante Marcos

Leader of the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN), who are based in the Chiapas. Here's a BBC profile on him:

somebody threw some shit at kanye at one of his concerts lol.

And hilarity ensued. I'm a fan and all, but nothing in this world is funnier than picking on a crybaby. Stay strong Ye.
