Even bin Laden gets it
We agreed with Mohamed Atta, god bless him, to execute the whole operation in 20 minutes. Before Bush and his administration would pay attention and we never thought that the high commander of the US armies would leave 50 thousand of his citizens in both towers to face the horrors by themselves when they most needed him because it seemed to distract his attention from listening to the girl telling him about her goat butting was more important than paying attention to airplanes butting the towers which gave us three times the time to execute the operation thank god.

Again, my Republican friends, what the fuck is wrong with you people?

Important update regarding album reviews
I was just reading over my original post having to do with my new policy for album reviews and I realized that that's really just not fair to the artist. Therefore, I've decided to come up with a new program which I think will work out well for all of us. Basically, all album reviews will be negative from now on except for cases in which the artist or the artist's record label mails me a check for $20.
Jim Jones - On My Way to Church: Album Review
Jim Jones, On My Way to Church (The Koch Graveyard, 2004)
Now that I think about it, this probably wasn't a very good album to begin my campaign of purposely negative album reviews just because it really is the worst rap album I've ever heard before in my life. But it'll have to do for the time being. I'm going to try to find that new Jay-Z & R. Kelly album, but it'll have to wait until at least Monday because I'm about to go flip White Assholes and then have a SEMO Good Time for the next couple of days.
What Eminem really needs to do
OK, so I found an album to rip on, but it's going to take a while because it's long and I haven't even started it yet. In the mean time, I've created another post at The Shrimp which is basically about the fact that I've grown increasingly disinterested in Eminem since the Marshall Mathers LP era.

Quick programming note regarding album reviews
In between drinking, sleeping and flipping White Assholes, I've been doing a lot of thinking about the future direction of this site. In particular, the events of the past couple of weeks, with Mos Def's new partial-birth abortion of an album and all of the ensuing controversy, have made me realize that I should probably not be doing any more positive album reviews at all. I've done them before in the past and nobody really bothered to read them, and I seem to be better at explaining why something is bad, or how bad something is, than trying to give any kind of fair-and-balanced critique of an album anyway.
