Lebron gets hated on by MJ in Nike Ad Mashup

God damn, MJ shits on Lebron in this Ad. I know its early in the season, but the Heat aren't that good and I am ok with that. It comes down to the difference between MJ and Lebron, not only in the ad but in reality: MJ is a winner and Lebron isn't. Lebron may be more talented, more physical, more alot of things, but at the end of the day MJ didn't like losing and simply didn't let it happen. By pure will, MJ won games and won championships. Bill Simmons isn't my favorite, but in his book, he pointed out how MJ would get bored and pray that someone started talking shit, so he could get fired up and dominate. I see none of that fire in Lebron. If someone talked shit to him, he might just ask for a trade as opposed to suiting up, getting on the court and kicking their ass. WTF Lebron? How did you fall so far that even Tiger is more likable to the church crowd that you are?

Jean Grey - Bridge(Produced by RJD2)

Jean Grey is damn good. I mean, in this track alone she makes a Kevin Smith ViewAskew reference. Which is really all that is required of a song. And RJD2 making beats is good, good news.

Food One-Upmanship

After the otherdays epic looking sandwich, I found some guys who drink in Canada and make crazy sandwiches. I don't think I'd order one of them, either The Death of the Double Down or The Greatest Sandwich Ever.

Contains: "20" french toasted Parisian baguette, a hot dog, poutine, quebecois steamy, bacon sandwich covered in 100% pure maple syrup from the tit of The Mother Maple Tree." Their description alone is horrifying.

Contains: Chicken, burgers, bacon, onion rings, mac n cheese and other stuff STACKED SO HIGH

And then they did this.

Best Food Thing Ever?


A maple bacon and egg sandwich on mac and cheese pancakes from Shopsin.

Maple bacon eggs on Mac and Cheese pancakes???? Get the fuck out of here. Put some syrup on that and It is everything you could want. No bullshit. Pancakes and bacon are a win, but the mac and cheese is cuts. Just fucking nuts.

Kobe Bryant 'Call of Duty' ad

Any outrage about the Kobe Bryant ad is nuts. They can complain all they want, but it can’t change the fact that the ad is basically the reason that I bought the game. I can’t think of a more out of touch person than Skip Bayless, who I loathe so much that he makes me like Kobe. And I confess not hating Kobe as much as I used to now that David Stern has ripped my basketball loving heart out. But that is another story. This is about how we live in a gun loving culture, at least in through our media, and suddenly we are up in arms about Kobe in a video game commercial wielding a gun? Should Shaw be suspended for his guns in ‘Steel’? I mean, he should, but not because of the guns in the movie. Or what about the NBA preview in ESPN pairing them up with comic book characters? Clint Barton is a abuser of women, Wolverine kills around 17 people per issue he is in, Bullseye is an assassin, Weapon X is a torture program, and Deadpool ate somebody once. I know comic book imagery isn’t the same as Kobe holding a gun, but the key message is the same and that is the NBA believes its fans can differentiate between what is real and what isn’t. I don’t know if it is completely true based on some of the Kobe reactions I’ve seen (ESPN video below), but I think generally people don’t give a shit and think the ad is damned good and sells a damned good product. Skip Bayless saying that the ad is bad because the US is involved in a war and soldiers are over seas shows that he really has no idea what is going on in the world and that he should get off my TV and back to the commercials.

'Glee'. Fuck it.

Every time I watch even a clip from 'Glee' when they do a song I think I might like, I just feel very uncomfortable about how awkward the performances are. Aside from the acting being bad, the script holding a lot of secret grudges against its characters, and it being a musical, ‘Glee’s crutch is the poorly dubbed and misguided ‘whitening’ of pop songs. I confess that I have seen only the pilot and a few clips from the show, but more than a handful of times I have seen their songs posted online and been intrigued. Unfortunately the most recent video I saw was Gweneth Paltrow, a talented actress, performing the radio friendly version of Cee-Lo’s “Forget You”. About 5 beats into the song, the hair on my neck stood up because of how damned awkward the performance is. It is a trend that I have seen in the shows clips.

I should say that I do not enjoy musicals as a whole (other than Gene Kelly) and feel that the songs just serve to extend a weak story’s run time. ‘Glee’ suffers from this because without the songs, it would be just another CW show that would get cancelled after a season without anyone noticing. Ryan Murphy, the shows creator, has done some good things (Nip/Tuck, Running with Scissors, Popular) but seems to have realized that people like white kids singing soulless versions of radio hits. It is smart on his part to sellout, but damn…Gweneth Paltrow singing a shitty version of “Fuck You” on a network TV show makes me sad. Unless Cee-Lo spent his ‘Glee’ check on something awesome, like a lifesize ice sculpture of himself. Or Curt Schilling’s bloody sock. Or a brothel in Vegas. How much do you get for selling a song to TV? Enough to buy a 17th century bathtub filled with French butter to spread on diamond crusted sourgdough? I like how anytime I try to make a rational argument on this site, I wind up letting my guard down and just typing what I’m actually thinking. To get back to my point, I do not like ‘Glee’, I don’t like it’s songs and I don’t think I’ll ever watch another clip unless they either have the girl who fills their racial minority and fat/unattractive quota sing Al Jolson or one of the pretty white people (everyone else on the show but that asian girl? And a black cheerleader.) do…actually no, fuck it, no way am I going to watch ‘Glee’. It isn’t my shit and I am going to stop trying to understand why people watch a show that so obviously tries to show love to everyone. Can’t they say fuck you to anyone? Not on network TV.

After Hours - Why 'Back to the Future' Is Secretly Horrifying

This is all true, but that doesn't make 'Back to the Future' any less awesome. I mean, 'Star Wars' is fantastic, but it is also apparently secretly racist.
