Fantasy Football Smack Talk Pt. 2

Posted in Random Posts with tags , , , , , , , , on November 26, 2008 by lvigilante

I beat my rival, BPM this past Sunday; and I must say, victory has never tasted so good. Here’s some shit talking exchanged between me and him. Note that I’m a Falcons fan (obviously with my team name being VICKtorious) and he’s an Eagles fan. Or atleast used to.

How do you like that bitch?! And to top it off, your boy McNabb got benched. Still thinking about getting rid of Cassel? I’m gonna need to win this week to make playoffs and beat you again. Enjoy the loss, asshole. I still am!

You are a worthless human being.  I can’t fucking believe that this happened.  I am no longer accepting trade offers unless they are incredibly good.

As for Philly, I am finally coming to realize that perhaps it is time to move on past Reid and McNabb.  I defended them for so long and just don’t know what is going on.  Although I do think that if they leave, the Eagles will have many crappy years ahead of them.  This is becoming a tougher decision for me than almost any relationship I have ever had.

Kanye West “Samples” Ralph Bakshi

Posted in Music with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 22, 2008 by lvigilante

Kanye West is not an artist. Whatever style he presents, whatever “new sound” he introduces, they’re simply not original. Even worse, it’s not personal. Just as mainstream’s streetwear king/ self-dubbed music genius previously sampled the hell out of a bunch of songs for Graduation– a sample-heavy album featuring 10 of 13 songs not being completely his own work, Yeezy’s newest video samples one of the works of my favorite filmmakers/ artists, Ralph Bakshi. See for yourself, the similarities between Kanye’s video for “Heartless,” and scenes from American Pop.

In the words of Mark Vallen on street artist/ Obey Plagiarist, Shepard Fairey, “it displays none of the line, modeling and other idiosyncrasies that reveal an artist’s unique personal style.”

The three faces of fail: Richard Wagoner of GM, Robert Nardelli of Chrysler, and Alan Mulally of Ford. What a way for the Big Three to fly into Washington in their highroller jets and ask for $25 billion taxpayer bailout money.
