Kanye West: I want some whine!!!!!!

Okay, I promise that this will be the last post about Kanye West. I don't want to give this ignorant, worthless, piece of shit any more attention than he deserves, but apparently there was footage of his meltdown at the VMA's on Sunday.

And now, here, for your enjoyment, is the screaming and bitching of Baby West.

Enjoy...as much as you can enjoy an adult behaving like a fucking child.


Some cheese with your whine, Mr. West?

Is it any surprise that people don't bother to buy music anymore?

Last Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards are proof positive that most awards in Hollywood mean shit and are worth probably less than a paper weight.

Of particular not is Mr. Kanye West. West, who was nominated in five categories, did not win a single award. This prompted West to throw a tantrum backstage.

"That's two years in a row, man ... give a black man a chance," he said as he left. "I'm trying hard man, I have the ... No. 1 record, man."

But his list of complaints had only begun.

He also ripped MTV a new one over the fact that he didn't get to perform his latest single, "Stronger," from his latest album, 'Graduation,' on the main stage. In an Associated Press story, he said:

He [West] said it was a blow to the ego when Justin Timberlake, who also hosted a suite party, ended up "on the big stage" to give the closing performance with Timbaland and Nelly Furtado. "Those are the big things, and you know what I do man, I really made the song 'Stronger,' you know, for stadiums," he said.

I want my MTV award!

West also whinned about how the VMA's treated the poor and bewildered Britney Spears. During an interview with Z100, an NYC radio station, West said, "They exploited Britney in helping to end her career. When Britney was opening, near the end, I felt so bad for her. I said: 'Man, it's a dirty game. This game will chew you up and spit you out.'"

Yes, poor Britney. She's gone batshit and that mean ole MTV took full advantage of her. That dumb will take any attention she can get. Hello? Wasn't this the same idiot who was photographed several times without panties AND saving her head bald? Nevermind the other dozen idiotic things she's done in the past.

Is a fucking MTV award more important to this clown than people listening to his record and liking it? Cause, if I'm not mistaken, I thought that's why people who can make music make it. This cements what I've always though: many actors and musicians don't work for the love, they work for the accolade. Its about the money, not the respect. Its about awards, not a love for your craft.

I'm sure that the fact that he had an album coming out yesterday didn't have anything to do with his little tantrum. I guess any publicity is good publicity. Isn't that what they say?


Would You Like TV With That?

A week or so ago, Aaron and I went to meet Tonya for lunch near her job. We decided we'd go to one of our old standards, a Chinese buffet on Dezavala and Vance Jackson. I can't remember the name of it, despite the 20 or so visits we've made. Its next to the Fox & The Hound Pub & Grill. I'd remember the bar...

Anyhow, so we sit down to eat when I start to hear something. It's not like crowd ambiance. It sounds like a radio. But I can hear the overhead, Chinese music playing. It wasn't that. It was something else.

I turn around and behind us, to my left, there's a couple with a portable DVD player watching a show or a movie while they eat.

Who the fuck does that?

I'll admit, my wife and I both plop ourselves in front of the tube to eat most nights. It probably isn't a great thing to do, but we do it nevertheless. But who takes the idiot box with them, TO A RESTAURANT, and flips it on so they can watch a movie and eat?

Hey, if you're chowin' down on a plate of Buffalo wings at a sports bar while enjoying the Appalachian State/Michigan game, go for it. That's what sports bars are made for. If you're at Applebee's and you glance up to catch the Spurs playing the Cavs in the NBA Finals and you order a nice steak with a side of garlic mashed potatoes, by all means, enjoy. But if there's no TV at the restaurant you're in, are you gonna haul in your own? Do you lack that much self control that you can't wait to get home or to your hotel or your double wide to catch the latest episode of the Jeff Foxworthy show or Cops?

Git Er Done!

Should I mention that the guy who was watching TV was wearing a NASCAR T-shirt and Wolverine workboots. Yes, I'm saying he was a redneck.

I was aghast. Shocked. I've seen some silly shit in my day, but a fucking DVD player in a buffet? If you can't wait to see a prerecorded show which you own and must watch TV while you consume food with your loved ones, then....ugh. Its just mind blowing.

If you click on the photo, you'll be able to see that I've blurred their faces. Not because I'm afraid they will see the photo and want to sue, but because it won't matter that you know their faces. You'll know it's them if you see them at a restaurant by the color of their DVD player.

Maybe I'm not hip on the new trends, but I don't EVER recall seeing anyone at any restaurant which did not have a TV, with a portable one.

My faith in humanity once again falls.


A Really Good Bloggers

So, the wife and I are driving home from getting some ice cream Saturday when we drive up to a stop light and I notice this van to our immediately right.

The van is white with a sticker on the back door and the side panel. The sticker has a fox in a tuxedo and the words, "Red Fox Cleaners".

I immediately do my bad and very limited imitation of Red Foxx and Tonya laughs. Then she notices the tag line underneath the name.

TONYA: 'A Really Good Cleaners'. Is that even right?
ME: It actually says that?
TONYA: Look at it.

So I look at the van and sure enough, that's what it says. I'm still not sure it's right. I probably is and it's just one of those things that while correct, still sounds strange.

I know, as a writer, I should have the sense to know if that's grammatically correct. I'm going to have to look it up. For now, here's the picture that I took of the van just before we turned down Bristlecone on the way home.

Lamont, ya big dummy, clean that up.

TONYA: You're gonna blog about this, aren't you?
ME: Oh, yeah.

Okay, wrong or right, how is that even a good tag for the company? What if GM just tagged themselves, "A Really Good Car"? Or Burger King just said, "A Really Good Burger"? People are going to think, "These guys are nutty." As we drove by, there were two obviously Mexican guys in the cab. As I looked at them, one of them raised his foot at dash-level and then the other one guy followed. They were comparing their shoes, I think. Just weird.

Well, I'm going to see if that tag is grammatically correct, but if you can tell me if this is right or not, please chime in. I'm so dumb.
