Kanye Sucks Harder

September 15, 2009

If you thought what Kanye said onstage at the VMAs made him look bad, just wait ’til you hear what he said backstage as they were throwing him out!  I found this hilarious video this morning.

“Y’all find Britney!  Get Britney!!”

LOL!  I couldn’t make this shit up if I tried.  You win King Douche, Kanye.  You win.

**Edit- Well…darn.  As Birdpress so rightly points out below, this video is not from the 2009 VMAs, and is actually copyrighted from 2007.  But is is clearly from some other MTV event/award show, and he’s showing off his odvious talent at douchery.  Douchery is not some god-given talent, people.  You have to practice at it, study it.  Kanye has been working long and hard at perfecting his “art”.

Suck it Kanye!

September 14, 2009

Wow, you are truly and asshole Kanye West.  A-S-S-H-O-L-E.

I woke up this morning, got onto facebook as it is my addiction, and immediately started noticing all the negative feedback about Kanye on people’s status updates.  I didn’t know what the hell had happened because I live in a foreign country, don’t have a TV and am pretty out of the entertainment loop.  Well a few clicks on youtube solved my curiosity.

**Edit note- I had a video posted here, and then another one, but Viacom (and/or Kanye’s reps) has been removing every video soon after it is posted.  If you haven’t seen the incident in question, please google or youtube search it.  You almost have to see it to believe it.**

That was some bullshit!  Poor Taylor Swift, did you see how hurt she looked?  First of all, she looked genuinely shocked that she won, I mean, she was up against some really strong videos.  She gets up on stage and is being really sweet and gracious, really genuinely humble about winning her very first VMA, and Kanye thinks he has the right to yank the mic away from her and shit all over her moment?  Fuck you Kanye.  That was wrong, really wrong.  Even Beyonce looked embarrassed.  Do you think he would have tried that shit if Pink or Lady Gaga was standing up there?  No, they would have put their stiletto heel right though his ass.  It pisses me off that he thinks just because she’s a white (yes, I’m going to play the race card here, I think he was being racist), naive, high school-aged country singer, that she didn’t deserve that award.  I’ll say it again, pure bullshit.  This isn’t even the first time he’s pulled this kind of crap!  Do you remember the American Music Awards a few years back?  The dumbass bumrushed the stage when he didn’t win best new artist, but this was so much worse.  Beyonce has a room full of VMA awards, she doesn’t need your lame ass sticking up for her.  Besides she walked away with three Moonmen that night for the same video!  Let Taylor Swift have her damn award!

Do I think she had the best video out of all of them?  Not really, but that’s how the fans voted, and she absolutely deserved to have her moment on that stage.  Even if he apologizes publicly, that moment can never be given back to her, and I really feel sorry for her.  Thankfully, the ever classy Beyonce did the best she could by inviting Swift onstage during her own acceptance speech for winning Video of the Year (for the same video Kanye was bitching about, VIDEO OF THE YEAR! So what if she didn’t win best female video, they both came out winners) so that Taylor could deliver her acceptance speech uninterrupted. GO BEYONCE!

Kanye, you could learn a lot about class and respect from artists like Beyonce and Taylor.  I think the two women handled it beautifully, while your drunk ass and bad haircut got thrown out of the auditorium by MTV producers.


Keepsake

August 21, 2009

I know that I’ve been really quiet lately, and not a very good blogger.  My life has just been in total overdrive the past few weeks.  Exciting things happening though.  We moved into our own apartment.  I can’t put into words how insanely happy it makes me!  This is the first time hubby and I have lived alone together in two years!  We loved living with my mom, but we hated living with his grandmother.  She was crazy, two months there felt like an eternity.  I’m still amazed that we were able to pull this off.  We had to buy everything, furniture, all the appliances, but we managed to afford it AND not go completely broke this month.  Having my birthday this month helped a lot because my family is not the “buy presents” type of family, they’re just the “send money” type of family.  Impersonal, but extremely useful!  I’ll post some pictures of the new place soon.  I feel like we’ve finally put our lives back together again.  Speaking of that, I want to share a song with you all that keeps running through my head.  It’s by one of my favorite bands, State Radio, and it seems to sum up our lives perfectly over the last few months.  It’s a song about pain and loss, but it’s also a hopeful song.  It’s called “Keepsake”

Lyrics:

One gonna heal my body another gonna heal my pain
One gonna settle me down then bring me back up again

I’m gonna put my family back together again

One gonna hold my woman another gonna hold my job
One gonna help me get up, another gonna help me stop

One gonna help me talk right, one gonna lay me down to sleep

(Humming)

One gonna hold my thoughts and another gonna hold my bones
One gonna keep me warm and another gonna keep me cold

One gonna bring religion, right from a Coleman stove
One gonna help me keep, and another gonna help me take.

One gonna run me down (Hell a bullets in my way)

You’re gonna keep my soul it was yours to have long ago

(humming)

I’m gonna buckle my belt around the ceiling pipe
I’m gonna buckle my knees and I’m gonna lock em up tight

I’m gonna hold a pen while you drag my arm across the page

One gonna hold my memories another gonna close the door
One gonna leave me restless another wanting more

You’re gonna keep my soul it was yours to have long ago

Progress…and a new blog!

July 8, 2009

I know I’ve been promising it for weeks, and my new Turkish travel blog is finally on its feet with a grand total of one post, but hey, it’s there!

You can now check out my adventures by going to http://turkdelights.wordpress.com

Now, some inquiring minds might ask, “Why do you need a separate blog for that?  Why not post all your stories and pictures on this one?”

Well…good question.  The short answer is that I really want to return this blog to its original intention, not a blog about me, but about my point of view on TV shows, movies, and silly things I find on the internet.  I’d like to keep my personal life more in the background.

Also, the other big reason is that my family and some of my friends don’t know about this blog and I don’t want them to so I can be free to say whatever the hell I want.  The travel blog is safe for grandma and grandpa.  But you, my bloggy friend, are welcome on both!  Just keep this blog a secret for me 🙂  Oh, who am I kidding?  I’ll get found out if I’m not already.  Also, just so you don’t get confused, I refer to my husband as “Q” on Turkish Delights because 1. That’s his real nickname, and 2. A few members of our family don’t know that we’re married yet, and I don’t want a bunch of angry emails about why they weren’t invited, and then I’ll have to explain that there wasn’t a wedding ceremony…blah blah blah.

In other news, I’m still up to my neck in work, so those Weeds recaps are going to be extra late.  Good news is we scored our first client over here!  They’re a body-building website that needs a re-design for their streaming video players, and we’re also going to sell them space on our servers.  Woot!  Work never stops.

What’s been keeping me going with all this non-stop work is music.  I’ve been thinking about starting a new section at bottom of my posts to discuss what I can’t stop listening to that week, but we’ll see if I can keep that up or not.  This week I cannot stop listening to Adele.  Just when I thought these young Brit soul singers were becoming a dime a dozen, Adele came along and proved me wrong.  Girl has got some pipes!  Her first album, 19, blows her contemporaries like Amy Winehouse and Duffy out of the water.  I have to wait till hubby wakes up and shows me how to hack back into youtube (yes, it’s blocked here) and I’ll post some videos so you can see what I mean.  I can’t get her single “Chasing Pavements” out of my head, and I think she wrote “My Same” about me and hubby.  Just to prove what a music schizo I am, the other album I can’t stop listening to is Pimp to Eat by the Analog Brothers.  Kool Keith with Ice-T…it just doesn’t get better than that!

“Chasing Pavements”

“Cold Shoulder”

If you like these you should also look up her song “Hometown Glory” on youtube as well.  I couldn’t find a version that would allow me to embed it.

I would post some Analog Brothers, but I don’t want to drive you all away.  If you’re feeling extra freaky, look them up.
