George BushMost of America Doesn't Care About Black People

- George Bush Doesn’t Care About Black People: Kanye West for President! In other Kanye news, read this hilarious review of his album from the always-reliable Fox News. The album is clearly the reviewers first encounter with rap music. One wonders where Mr. Roger Friedman has been for the last twenty years.

- FUCK BUSH: To anybody who thinks that the NOLA shit was inevitable and that our administration is trying its hardest to help things, go here and here if you really and truly want to be pissed off and hurt. FUCK THIS FUCKING COUNTRY. I am so fucking disappointed in our incompetent mother-fucking bullshit pieces of shit “leaders.” Fuck them so fucking much in their fucking ass. Fuck you, George Bush. Fuck you, Michael Brown. We should really be allowed to beat up government officials if they don’t do their jobs… or at least vote them “off the island” like a reality show. Fuck. This shit is so fucking infuriating. Oh, and read everything here, too.

- Success!: Thanks to everyone who came to White T’s and White Belts on Friday. Your contributions were much appreciated and we made some good money for the folks suffering down in N’awlins. Don’t forget about my charity auctions on soulstrut. I’ve got two records up and all of the money is going to the hurricane victims: a sealed Little Boy Blues “In the Woodland of Weir” LP (currently going for $70), and a VG Black Merda S/T LP (currently going for $200). Get your cop on!

- Don’t Throw Things at AI: Justice at last to the “fan” who threw a quarter and hit AI in the head (good aim, by the way).

- Content vs Form: Steven Shaviro has some interesting thoughts about the marked difference between the terrible imagery of Hurricane Katrina and the dead-pan style of reporting we find on our news shows.

This shit is all so fucking sad.

"The rest of 'Late Registration,' while very entertaining, contains almost no original compositions."

and dude has the gall to say that other people "know zilch."

if "one thing's for sure," it's that mainstream journalism sucks.

Try to imagine Marvin Gaye not composing all of "What's Going On?" but splicing together other people's music and recordings over which he'd chant his musings. He would have been laughed out of the business.

This guy is a fucking moron.

C'mon guys. Friedman is clearly an old-school souljazz head. Ya didn't know? He's heard of Bill Withers, and may even have bothered to google Gil-Scott. I bet dude was at Midnight Band shows back in the 70s screaming "What's the word? Johannesburg!"

that's unbelievable. it's the music writing equivalent of calling a computer "cheating," a photograph "fake," or christianity "a fad."
