    1. dudes getting old, kinda sad he’s talking like he is still a street dude and referencing “mad bitchez” so often. i bought blood money but it was kinda forgettable . hell on earth was the end of Mobb Deeps irrelevance in my eyes. just my opinion, don’t think i will cop anything new from them unless they surprise me
    2. fuck apple plain and simple. corporation finding new ways to make revenue okay, but contract the work to firms that pay 31 cents an hour, make the workers do shifts in excess of 24 hours and basically institute legal slavery!?!?! fuck that.
    And the trend of e-books has implications too. What happens after text books die out? corps basically controlling the spigot of information. Some info that potentially is upsetting to a corp that distributes a book? Make a new edition!! Edit out shit you don’t like! Win! (For the corp) I find it a tad unsetlling. A version Of SOPA will pass eventually. Corps have got deep pockets.
    As an aside alot of tech corps contract their work to Foxxcon (douchewads) hence i don’t own a smartphone. (just a barebones nokia that gets the net but no apps)
    3. both inspiraitional figures in my eyes (blue as they are)
    4. as i piss on the way they are manufactured, i hope they are urine proof as well lol
    5.Aussie Aussie Aussie oi oi oi! gratz if it goes through. But as she sounds like a yank, can’t say that i would cop a release from her. I like the “realness” of hip hop. she isn’t true to her roots IMO (in regards to accent anyways)
    6.cracker ass cracker. rich dudes have little perspective .more so ignorant ones
    10 get ready for some fireworks and blood. Iran isn’t iraq, a far stronger foe. OZ will be drafted in to any conflict with them.. Apart from media, explosions are one of the few exports the US still has. near inevitable conflict with Iran. a pity about darfur,in Sudan, burma and probably another dozen countries douchness.

    Custom word salad rant over!!

    Glad Iggy is getting signed. She’s dope, and deserves all that she’s receiving. Clap for her.

    Gingrich’s fat ass complains about the “absurd” amount of money that union janitors are making, but didn’t he get paid something like 1.2 milli for his work with Freddie Mac & Fannie Mae as a “historian”? GTFOHWTBS

    y’all ready for the web blackout protest tomorrow?


    • Tony Grands says:

      Congress “decided” to hold off on the vote for now, to figure things out as the wording pertains to the internet’s umbrella of freedom.

      Several anti-sopa movements are up & running now, designed to protect those whose “sites” don’t infringe on anything in particular but still might be harrassed as a result.

    “According to U.S. Census Bureau, about 28 percent of households that receive food stamps are African American, while 59 percent are white. According to the same report, about 78 percent of American households are white, while about 12 percent are black.”

    I’ve been using this point like a .357 these past weeks…outing all of the racial undertones people are spewing out there because Newt ain’t the only one who thinks and believes this info is reversed…
