Perez had this to say about Michael Phelps’ car accident last week:

Turns out Michael Phelps was drinking before last Thursday’s car accident in Maryland!

Phelps downed a beer an hour and 15 minutes before the accident occurred, he admitted to police!

Baltimore police have ruled out the booze as the cause for the accident because Fishy showed “no signs of alcohol impairment.”

Although though the other driver, Amanda E. Virkus, was at fault for the collision (she ran a red light), do U think the beer may have had an impact on Phelps’ reaction time????

INTERESTINGLY enough, police did not administer Phelps any sobriety tests.

Celebrity justice!

Now, I’m all for making fun of his notorious “bong-rip” picture but insinuating that one beer consumed over an hour before driving might have impaired someone’s ability to drive is absolutely ludicrous… and a little retarded…

What Cannibal Corpse song are you? I’m “Frantic Disembowelment.”

WTF?

Wow…



“Hi Wal Mart, we love you” Seriously? I hope that they were talking to somebody else or this was a joke because there’s no way a super artistic “Performance Artist” who was actually serious would actually say something like this… Oh wait… nevermind…

Oh, Copyrighting…

I’m not some sort of “activist” (whatever the hell that means these days anyway) or anything and I don’t usually get concerned about a lot of stuff, but this is pretty damn ridiculous:

Below is a news report about an April Fool’s day prank that was actually a double prank, whereas the actual prank itself was staged:



openquoteTonight I got a copyright notice from YouTube informing me that Tribune (the parent company of the CW 11) had filed a copyright claim against the video and that it had been removed. Clearly they want this embarrassment off of the Internets. What’s more interesting is the fact that their original broadcast used our content without permission. They simply put “YOUTUBE” on the screen to indicate that’s where they found the video. So it’s OK for them to air content that we shot and own, but it’s not OK for me to upload their footage of the content they took from me? It’s “fair use” for the news to take a video off of YouTube and broadcast it, but it’s not “fair use” for a citizen to expose their poor reporting on his own content?

Joe Satriani has Betrayed Our Trust…

7 April, 2009



He just keeps going and going… I’m sorry, I liked Satch but this is ridiculous, give up…

openquotePerhaps you have heard that sore loser Joe Satriani has sued Coldplay, asserting they stole their song “Viva La Vida” from his royal show-offness, writes MusFormation.com.

Today, Coldplay denied Satch’s allegations that they ever would listen to his guitar wankery (I mean, these guys hang with Eno, they got no time for guitar masturbation albums, when they could be listening to the guitar solo in “Baby’s On Fire”), in a Federal Court. While I think the Players will easily win this case, I have outlined how the Defense could make this court case the first case won solely by YouTube testimony. Follow me to the jump and I will put on my worst fitting suit and make my case!

With the insane amounts of music that have come out over the years, it is officially impossible to not have some of your works be similar to others. According to the website Top Ten Reviews, in 1965 there were 208 albums released where as in 2008 there were approximately 37,000 albums released. This makes it impossible for some songs to not have similarities to others.openquote

Haha, You Suck Miley… Part II

13 March, 2009



Remember a few weeks ago when Miley Cyrus wanted to meet Radiohead and they did not oblige? Well, i didn’t know this until now, but this is what she said… like she actually said this…

“I left ’cause I was so upset,” she said. “I wasn’t going to watch. Stinkin’ Radiohead! I’m gonna ruin them, I’m going to tell everyone.”

Does she. I mean, does she, really? She must have her own head stuck so far up her own ass that she doesn’t even understand that Radiohead, as pretentious and douchey as they can be, are a staple of music history. They have been around forever and have a huge following and they will be remembered for long after they’re gone… Miley, not so much. She can’t honestly believe that the same people who listen to Radiohead even listen to what she has to say, can she?

Idiot…

Oh ya, Kanye got snubbed by them, too. I don’t think that was very cool of Radiohead, I mean Kanyeezy a pretty soulful dude with an appreciation for good music, art and fashion. You’re Thom Yorke, man, not Paul McCartney…

This Isn’t Really Anything New…

Yes officer, this is where he hit me…

Click Here for the LAPD notes on what happened between Chris Brown and Rihanna. Basically, to summarize, he beat the shit out of her. It’s plain and simple people, it can’t get any more simple unless it was printed on a dot matrix printer from 1992 in black and white.

This reminds me of something… what could it be. Some names are coming to mind all of a sudden… Ike that’s one, Tina, perhaps, oh, theres more? Bobby and… Whitney? Ya, there might be even more too, maybe if I think harder… Amy, Blake, ya there’s more, there definitely could be more…

Oasis V. Coldplay, Just Kidding…

3 March, 2009



Coldplay’s producer, and all around ambient genius, Brian Eno, and Oasis’ old manager, Alan McGee, apparently have gotten into a war of words on twitter. Its pretty much the twitter equivalent of Sorority sisters arguing over something they won’t remember in the morning after a long night of Junction Punch and regrets…

Referring to Eno’s latest collaboration with Coldplay, the former Oasis manager added: “Was it your idea to dress up Coldplay as the Beatles?” Eno replied to McGee’s message (known on Twitter as a ‘Tweet’) this morning, saying: “Fuck off, wanker.”

I have no comment in either direction as they may both a have a point…

That’s Just Crazy…

closequoteOasis were informed Saturday, the 28th of February by their Chinese promoters, (Emma Entertainment/Ticketmaster China) that representatives from the Chinese Government have revoked the performance licenses already issued for the band and ordered their shows in both Beijing and Shanghai to be immediately cancelled. The government have instructed the ticket agencies to stop selling tickets and to reimburse the thousands of fans who have already purchased tickets for these inaugural Oasis shows in the People’s Republic of China.closequote

Ok, let’s be honest. They’re banned because Noel played at a Free Tibet show in 1997. Nineteen ninety-fucking-seven. He was probably so out of it he doesn’t even remember being there. Noel didn’t get clean for another two years after that. On top this, come one, its been 12 years. Governments are funny…

Not-So-FreeCreditReport.com…

20 February, 2009



Below is from BoingBoing.net about freecreditreport.com, a website that gives you a free credit report. Actually, no, it doesn’t…

closequoteI clicked on the large bright orange button that said “Get your Free Credit Report & Score!” and was presented with a form. I filled it out. I hesitated for a second when the site asked for my credit card number, which it stated was “required to establish your account,” but the site assured me that my “credit card will not be charged during the free trial period.” Having done this before (or so I thought), I went ahead and entered the information. A shopping cart receipt indicated that the total was $0.00.
I got my credit report, looked it over, and forgot about it. A week later I was looking at my checking account register online and I noticed a $14.95 charge from a company called CIC*Triple Advantage. I didn’t recall buying anything from a company with that name, so I entered “CIC*Triple Advantage” into Google. The search results made my eyes bug out of my head. This was the name of the billing entity for freecreditreport.com. The thousands of search results were full of words like “deceptive practices,” “scam,” “ripoff,” “unauthorized billing!” and “beware!” In fact, all the top results were either from people complaining that they’d been conned into signing up for a $14.95 monthly credit monitoring service without their permission, or they were about how to cancel the service.

Hey, ya, That’s Mature…

4 February, 2009



I used to like Fagboy Joe Satriani. He is a guitar god. He is creative and writes well composed songs. But he’s a total fucking idiot. Please, let his lawyer do the talking:

Satriani’s attorney Howard King of King Paterno et al. says, “We have warned their British lawyers that we have hired a fleet of process servers lined up to dog the band everywhere they go this weekend in the hopes of serving them.” King even promises to have camera crews roaming around with the process servers to get the whole thing on tape…. Fox News are reporting today that Coldplay may be looking over their shoulders this Grammy weekend. The reason is that a lawyer representing musician Joe Satriani is sending teams of process servers all over town to hand them a plagiarism lawsuit

This is where they will, hopefully, eff themselves in the A. Satch says this isn’t for publicity and he is heartbroken (what a puss -ed.) about it all, etc. Okay, ya, sure, not for publicity. They’re only sending out servers on the biggest fucking day of Music! There only sending out, a camera crew? What the hell. This will turn so many people who are on the fence about this against Satriani. They are quite literally, about to bend over and take it from this guy.

Coldplay have a new video coming out for their single Life in Technicolor ii and I’m not gonna lie, the screenshots look lamer than The Jonas Brothers trying to cover Gravity.

I love coldplay, but I’m a bit disappointed by the fact that their portraying themselves as puppets. Maybe for another song, but I had such I hopes for this one. Its one of my favorites off of Viva La Vida and the fact that they lengthened it and added lyrics made it even better. I thought they would go in a cooler direction, like with Lovers in Japan, but, alas, they are trying to be kitsch or some shit and I’m thinking they might fail. However, look for me eating my own words if this doesn’t turn out to be another Talk. I have to be honest though, these screenshots are pretty stupid looking…

Buckley fans protest against x-Factor Conestant’s cover of Leonard Cohen’s song

closequoteJeff Buckley’s version of ‘Hallelujah’ has re-entered the UK singles chart, just two weeks before the winner of this year’s ‘X Factor’ will release a cover of the song in a bid to get the coveted Christmas Number One.

Although the winner of the TV talent show is yet to be decided, fans of Buckley’s version of the song – and Leonard Cohen’s, who wrote the song – have been buying his version in protest.
closequote

Meanwhile, Radiohead’s Thom Yorke reputedly recorded his vocals for ‘Fake Plastic Trees’ directly after seeing Buckley perform in Highbury, north `London, armed only with an acoustic guitar and pint of Guinness. Yorke was apparently so impressed by the passion and simplicity of Buckley’s performance that he recorded his vocals in just two takes, bursting into tears at the song’s end.

Other famous fans include Brad Pitt, who says he has an “obsession” with Buckley, Patti Smith, and Cocteau Twins singer Liz Fraser, who reportedly had a brief relationship with him.

Ridiculous? I’d say so.
