pink floyd reunites, bob geldorf still egotistical

so pink floyd played together onstage for the first time in history (history began on 09 September, 1982, when i was born.) and it was amazing. the entire concept of live 8 is totally laughable, it's just a bunch of famous people stroking their egos.
case in point? madonna with the "token starving african child-turned college student" wearing a $200 000 diamond necklace. Snoop dogg saying he's the "voice of africa" while wearing his own brand-name clothing line, sporting a necklace worth more than 3 countries. http://www.contactmusic.com/new/xmlfeed.nsf/mndwebpages/snoop%20dogg%20plans%20pilgrimage%20to%20africa
but my favorite! was the mtv/vh1 double-commercialization whammy. they were showing identical feeds, thus forcing us to watch what mtv execs want us to, yet showing DIFFERENT COMMERCIALS during the numerous breaks, thus doubling viacom's advertising revenue for the event, which i'm certain was a: astronomical and b: will never in any way trickle down to native africans. oh yeah, and the token starving african children montage, interrupted for a commercial break, and on MTV a (if i didn't have such a sick sense of humor i would be really offended) CADILLAC COMMERCIAL!!!
yay! it's all fake! they don't really give a shit about the starving africans, all they care about is the great PR from saying they do! yay!

not to mention the fact that Africa, as a continent, is not the prototypical starving aethiopian. remember, Aegypt is in africa, so is morocco, libya, algeria, &c.

so to filter through the bullshit: "Please, G8 leaders, remember that the only people in Africa we actually call africans are sub-saharan, black, impoverished, disease-ridden, and war-torn. ignore everyone else that lives on the continent, we don't really give a shit about them"

ps. if they want any change over there, france needs to pull its head out of its ass. NOW. http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk_news/story/0,3604,813133,00.html for example.

PC Goes Amok

So again down in Florida, the PC whack jobs are out en force. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,160728,00.html. top story on there. (i'll get the original link when i find it)
apparantly, not only are these people confused about the past, they also want to erase the fake past that they feel is accurate.
firstly, naming a high school after the president of the confederacy is not only appropriate in the South, it's required. I'm from Lee county, named after one of the greatest military minds in history, General Robert E. Lee. It is this respect for these great men who helped shape our country into what it is today that drives people to name public buildings in their honor, not some misguided racism.
Jefferson Davis Middle School should remain as such, and here's why: recognizing the history of the South is not in and of itself racist; even if there is some sense of racism (for example, recent efforts to ban burning crosses and increasing penalties for lynchings), pretending it never existed by erasing it isn't just ineffective, it's dangerous.
In order to avoid mistakes of the past, we must come face to face with the truth of what happened, not the lies that the nutso PC people want to feed you, and we must understand and appreciate it before it happens again.

Hatred is bred from this type of ignorant, blind stupidity, and it's not going to go away like they hope it will.

the first post/ andy rooney post

sup fools

the first of many. it's not going to have the great news that others have, or the terrific opinions that still more have. in fact, i doubt seriously anyone will read this. ever.

that in mind, here we go!

i just caught the tail end of 60 minutes, because they had a segment on Lance Armstrong, and i saw "A few moments with Andy Rooney" which would have more aptly been titled "Andy Rooney has totally **** lost it" it was a piece on mannequins. plastic people. and his commentaries on women's fashion, which included such gems as "The necklines on these mannequins sure are low, much lower than the girls around the office are wearing." and "The clothes do look much better on the mannequins than on the people wearing them on the street." mainstream media wonders why viewership is down? because they force drivel like this on us. it's like, i understand the old man has been around for awhile, but allowing him to indulge any random idea he has is seriously undermining any possible credibility the show may have ever had. okay, so you only have 5 minutes left at the end of the show, you don't want to waste all the production costs of doing any real reporting (i know, i know, that would be a first, but humor me) but mannequins? modern marvels won't even TOUCH that, and they're taking their success and running with it by doing such gems as "Gas Tech: marvelous uses of various gasses." don't get me wrong, modern marvels is fascinating, they're just finding marvels in things that are rather ordinary. but i digress. don't spend the five minutes entertaining the whimsy of a nutty old coot...spend the five minutes with a live shot of new york city or something...any damned thing besides this insanity. my god...did i just allow a TV show i rarely watch to get me that riled up? i need to stop studying and go for a run.....
