Rebecca Black Lets Me Know That Yes, I Do Still Have a Chance of Having a Music Career

13 03 2011

And I thought I couldn’t stand Justin Bieber’s music.

Holy shit this takes the cake as one of the worst songs I’ve heard in a long while.

And, yes, even Kim Kardashian’s lifeless lyrics in her recent song “Jam” are WAY better by comparison… that’s saying something.

The song is called “Friday” by Rebecca Black… whoever the hell she is.

Her rhyme scheme is more of a shitstorm than a rhyme scheme really.

“I got this, you got this, my friend is to my right.”

“We we we we we so excited.”

“Yesterday was Thursday. Today it is Friday. Tomorrow is Saturday. And Sunday comes afterwards.”

No shit, Sherlock. And somehow this has over 800,000 views.

And Usher on the track. What?

People, if you ever thought that you couldn’t make it in a certain profession because you just weren’t talented enough… trust me, you can suck majorly like this girl and still do SOMETHING relevant.

Although in her case, you’re really gonna have to put a definition on the word “relevant.”

I have no appreciation for the word and day Friday any longer.

And honestly, the comically slowed down version sounds better.

Good lord.

Any record labels looking to sign a white rapper with below average lyrics and delivery?

If so, I’m the guy you’re looking for.


Summerish Weather = Windows Down & Cruisin’ Music

3 03 2011

The weather has been so damn nice in Arizona recently (and should only be getting better)… that it’s starting to feel a bit summerish.

Yeah, the lukewarm days and the just-right temperature nights.

It’s getting to be the perfect time of year here in Arizona.

And in my opinion, there’s no better feeling than cruising with the windows down in your car with weather like this.

Personally speaking, I’m a big fan of old school hip hop.

Ice Cube, Dre, Too $hort, Biggie, 2Pac… no particular order but you catch my drift.

A particular genre that I’ve taken a liking to is G-Funk, a style of West Coast gangsta rap over smoother, calmer instrumentals that gained quality airplay in the early and mid 90s.

And to me, if you combine rolling in your car with the windows down and summer-esque weather, you better be bangin’ some good throwback instrumentals.

Here are five of my favorite G-Funk cruisin’ tunes for you to bump:

Too $hort – Just Another Day (1993)

Ice Cube – You Know How We Do It (1994)

Dr. Dre – Keep Their Heads Ringin’ (1995)

Ice Cube – Check Yo Self (1993)

Geto Boys – Damn It Feels Good to Be a Gangsta (1992)

From the movie Friday to the movie Office Space, you may have heard these before, but one thing I can assure you is that these are just a bunch of 15+ year old hits that will making cruising in your car even better.

Links I Like – Aroldis Chapman’s Heat

1 09 2010

Tuesday, August 31, 2010 was a big day that Cincinnati Reds fans will not soon forget.

It marked the debut of one of the most highly touted arms not named Stephen Strasburg that the game of baseball had seen in a long, long time.

The Origin of “On The Reg”

25 08 2010

I can thank Kenny Powers for supplying me with the phrase “on the reg” after watching the season 1 finale of the HBO series “Eastbound & Down.” The 6-episode series originally premiered back in February of 2009, but I didn’t really catch on to it until about six months ago. Man am I glad I gave this show a chance. The show is produced by a personal favorite of mine in Will Ferrell among others and centers around an arrogant, washed-up, self-indulged former professional baseball player named Kenny Powers (played by Danny McBride) who ends up having to teach P.E. for a living back in his home city of Shelby, North Carolina. The show features plenty of hilarious scenes, foul language and a ton of quotables, including this one right here. If you don’t like hearing a couple of bad words, then don’t watch this brief 21-second clip. But if you want to know the origin of this blog’s title, hit that big play button and let it roll.

Search YouTube for other funny Eastbound & Down clips. Trust me, there’s plenty.

HBO announced quite a while back that EB&D would be renewed for a second season, which premieres just a month from tomorrow on my birthday, Sunday September 26 at 10:30 Eastern Time (what a day that’s going to be). If you happen to have HBO and are in need of a good new comedy to get into and don’t mind some dirty humor and foul language, then give Eastbound & Down a shot. You’ll watch one episode and I guarantee that you’ll start watching on the reg.

And hey, if you love that whole “on the reg” speech, you can even buy a shirt to commemorate it!
