Duets that should never happen.

~Z~ I do not listen to the radio because I hate it and they over play songs. However I love music. Therefore I must seek music out or watch music television to find new songs. I pretty much stick to my roots in the FUSE alternative rock world but every once in a while I feel like going on an adventure and trying something new. So the other day I was flipping though the channels and happen to notice Jay Sean on BET and stopped to find out about him for a minute. I learned that he has a beautiful British accent, yay for him. And hes very pretty period... yay for him again... I also learned that I generally approve of him so far because his music is catchy and he doesn't immediately come across as a douche bag the way most R&B/Rap stars come across.

However... as they started to play his video for "Do you remember" I saw that Sean Paul was in it and I was all excited and then... I saw that Lil Jon was also in it.... Why? Why would anyone ruin a smooth, bubbly R&B song with random "HEY!" "HEY!" "SING TO THE LADIES" being thrown into the background? Lame. Has anyone told Lil Jon that hes been reduced to joke level? I'm pretty sure Dave Chapelle made it obvious.... can I get a "YEEEEEEEEAAAAAAHHHHH!" ?


oh well. the song is still good bc Sean Paul makes up for it.

Anyways so that was only the first thing I found strange... the TV was on mute after some commercials and I looked up to notice 50 cent... great. Me least favorite rapper right down to the lack of an "s" at the end of cent. saaaarcaaaassssmmmmm. I find him to be about the most repulsive human being on the planet. He is just an ugly mess and his songs are talentless. How many times can you sing about loving money and t&a before people finally get tired of you? His songs are disgusting... but maybe he can't help it... I still maintain that he is actually a gorilla in disguise.

SSSSSHHHHHHHH! Its a secret!

Anyways the music video on mute seemed really nice. 50 cent all dressed up and taking care of some lady like he was actually in love... and to make things more interesting it was a duet with Ne-Yo who is actually kinda classy and likes to sing about women who are strong and independent and intelligent.... so I was curious....and then I unmuted it... and was auditorally assaulted with various dirty sex references... why did Ne-Yo stoop to this? Who did they think would benefit? Was 50 cent trying to make himself more palatable to non rap fans or was Ne-Yo trying to gain cred? I don't get it and I don't think it worked for either one.

And my night of confusion wasn't over yet! The NEXT song was even more interesting... Chris Brown and Plies. This was my first experience with Plies... and this is what it looked like:

Terrifying isn't it.... the nightmares abound and I seek therapy. I don't even know how to begin with this guy because I have no idea how someone even more disgusting than 5o cent got famous... and why a poppy teenager like Chris Brown would think that he could benefit from this guy in anyway is beyond me.... however we do all know now that there is a pretty nasty side to Chris Brown so maybe him and Plies are actually kindred spirits....


Thus concludes my epic venture into the land of BET and mismatched duets.

The Decline of Modern Society

So, I have discovered that sitting at a local diner at 3 o'clock in the morning really makes me rant. As I am sitting there with Z and J and we are talking about nothing too significant when someone mentions something about TV or movies and all of the sudden I go off.
It's just sad to think of who our role models are these days and who is bombarding the covers of our magazines. Back when Z, J, and I were going to school there were such prominent celebrities as three-time Golden Globe award winner Julia Roberts and two-time Golden Globe winner George Clooney and all the people you would associate with being friends or significant others of said actors. These actors are humanitarians and UN ambassadors and philanthropists. But no, today our society revolves around The Hills, Gossip Girl, and Twilight. I mean seriously? Our society has become so shallow and self-absorbed that we want to watch TV shows and movies that display people who are just as shallow or self-absorbed.
The same goes for our music. With songs like Nickelback's "Something in Your Mouth" or "Wasted" by Gucci Mane, no wonder we are the laughing stock of the rest of the world. Yes, we may be a powerful nation, but we are also naive and under-educated. I understand that back in the late 90's we had our share of Britney Spears and N*Sync but it seems the attitude of teens these days has changed so much. Intellectualism has faded severely with teens today. Who needs to read anymore when everything is made into a poorly interpreted movie?
Who needs to care about history anymore when Keira Knightley will just star in some celluloid dream that deals more with falling in love than actually getting the facts straight. Who needs to care about anything at all when daddy will just pay for whatever you want or bail you out of everything?

Unfortunately instead of using my own words, the thing that best expresses how I feel is a quote from the lead singer of AFI, Davey Havok:
"Hate humanity? Yep, sure do. There's such a lack of responsibility for one's actions in the world, a selfishness, and a great destruction in the way people live their lives. It's all instant gratification and who cares how my instant gratification affects those around me, or on a small personal level or a global level. The way people treat each other is truly disgusting and we've created an environment through advances in science and technology that allows for a very septic society to thrive. And we breed and breed and all the wrong people breed while all the right people don't wanna have children because they don't wanna place them in this world."

Hottie McMcAlister's Pants

Ok so Tuesday was awesome for a few reasons:

1. Went to McAlister's where we got to oogle the hot servers

2. Played trivia at a resturant where I discovered that I am truly meant to follow baseball because I knew in my soul the sum of Babe Ruth's number, how many Yankees were in the hall of fame, how many home runs player don't-remember-his-name hit, and how many titles the yankees have won. 106 was the answer, I guessed 112 while everyone else was way way off. That's right. I know things. I am very in touch with my inner baseball fan.

3. Went to a well known wing place because that just wasn't enough trivia to satisfy us and it was the craziest wing place I have ever seen. It was full of teenage "Canadians" which I wish I could expound upon but somebody would take it the wrong way. There was a chain keeping people from getting in unless the security guard let you and he had a gun on him. I was like "that is really intense" and he said "you'd be surprised." I said "I only want to sell some drugs in the bathroom is that ok? I promise no violence" and he said "sure" making him awesome. (D here... shall I also mention that in this particular establishment, the choice of music was completely contrary to the demographic at hand... it made me chuckle a bit but I pretended not to be enjoying it)

4. We were the ONLY 3 people playing trivia in the whole place despite the fact that it was packed. I didn't know that was possible at this particular establishment. I used the blog name as my trivia name but luckily all of our fans were really cool about it and didn't bug us too much.

5. While we were playing trivia the drunk guy sitting next to D leaned over and said "I hate you." D had not said a word to this man nor even really looked at him. (I know I can be mean sometimes, but I didn't know I would incite the hate of random strangers)

Random Facts you should know
- Allotrophy is a chemical term for a substance that can exist in two or more different forms
- The Korean War did not end with a peace treaty
- A glass building used to grow plants is called a greenhouse. Which could also be the easiest trivia question ever asked.
- If you wanna avoid being embarassed that you couldn't handle your drink, just pour it down the sink while no one is looking and then pretend you drank it. (I have NO idea what you are talking about here, Z)

This is a song I wrote for D that expresses her true feelings about a certain someone. Hopefully he will hear it one day and it will touch his heart.

"Ode to Hottie McMcAlister's Pants"

Theres a place I like to go
When my hunger starts to show
Its a grand ole place you know
because its where I see my beau!

Oh hottie McMcAlister's Pants
won't you bring me my spud!
because I think you're quite a stud.
I hope you are thinking about me
while you pour all that sweet, sweet tea

I love the way you look
when all my money you took
your eyes snared me like a hook
I read you like a book

Oh hottie McMcAlister's Pants
won't you bring me my spud!
because I think you're quite a stud.
I hope you are thinking about me
while you pour all that sweet, sweet tea

One day you'll see
You'd be into me
Thank god for Facebook!
Wait... is that your girlfriend!?

(This is the best song, EVER)

How is Channing Tatum so popular??

Ok so we saw GI Joe yesterday. Now I have been saying for months that I knew this movie would be horrible because the cast is full of well known yet never-done-better-then-B movies actors. However, who wouldn't wanna see the GI Joe movie regardless of its awfulness? So when D suggested it I was up for it, knowing that there would be some special experiences involved and I was not disappointed.

As for the movie itself it was.... loud. And it was also loud. It completely lived up to what anyone would expect from the commercials as far as some awesome CG animation and a crap ton of explosions. Not to mention somewhere between 125,000 and 15o,000 cars were destroyed in the making of this film. I counted. It's hard to say what my favorite part about the movie was... there are just so many things that were awesome. I think its a tie between the ninja fighting amongst random background information from their childhood, the cheesy stereotypical black guy cracks, the horrible horrible acting from Channing Tatum, and the fantastic monotone downplayed delivery of the well known line "and knowing is half the battle" from Dennis Quaid.

But the REAL experience of this movie was the auidence's reaction to it. Because they LOVED it. Seriously. They cheered at the end because they got so pumped up by the badly written overly simplified action they couldn't contain their excitement inside of their easily influenced and entertained minds. The best audience member was a girl sitting in the back. Now I won't give anything away but lets just say that during the movie a question arises that you know they will answer before the movie ends. Then there is some crazy action as the Joes save the world. When the action ended the girl in the backed whooped and started clapping and then the screen changed as the director took us back to the obviously till open ended part of the plot. When the scene change happened, overly excited chick embarrasingly stopped clapping and said "OH YEAH!" Now the "answer" to this question was so obvious that D and I called it within the first half an hour of the movie but I guess some of our fellow audience members weren't as quick on the uptake as we were because they audibly gasped causing me to bust out laughing.

The worst experience was that when the credits started rolling the guy sitting behind me jumped out of his seat with energy, looked at his friend, and shouted "DUDE? was that better than Terminator!?" I almost punched him in the face with the words "Don't you EVER compare Batman to Denis Quaid again!" I mean SERIOUSLY? The cast, director, and writers alone make it PRETTY damn obvious which is the better pick. sigh. people make me sad.


= There is no competition here....

Interesting/Awesome things that happened yesterday
- As I waited for D to get out of work the worlds largest man walked in front of my car towards the pizza place I was near. And by walk I mean he sort of thrusted his weight using one hip at a time in a motion that caused him to move forward.
-D and I once again realized that we are eachothers perfect wingmen and came up with some PLANS for a few hotties we have targeted lol
-Got free dinner bc the manager was awesome
-Found out what it was like to get my soul PROBED
- witnessed a true drug addict walk aimlessly around a diner late at night for about a half an hour. At one point she walked outside and twirled around the parking lot eliciting the waiter near by to mutter "what is this freak doing?" When she came back in she for whatever reason gave her backpack to someone else and then proceeded to walk past us again. This time with two full bottles of pills waving in her hands as she walked, confirming the fact that she was totally wasted.
- *D about 5 feet from a city bus* "Is that a fire truck?"
Z - "Yeah. It's a fire truck."
-Found out that the pill lady was walking funny because she must have been hanging out with J when he was tree climbing and fell. She still has that branch stuck up her bum!
