Fiddy's weed carrier shot!
MTV.com is reporting that 50 Cent and the rest of those crazy jigs in the G-Unit were involved in some shit this evening at the Hot 97 studios. First of all, Fiddy was pissed that Teh Ghey didn't want any part of his beef with pretty much the entire rap industry at this point, not to mention the fact that he has been rumored to blow little boys, and made the announcement that Teh Ghey had therefore been "excommunicated" from the G-Unit. Meanwhile, somebody shot one of Fiddy's weed carriers twice while he was in the lobby, presumably standing next to the bag. No word yet on what happened to the bag, but I'll be sure to keep you all posted.

The Aviator vs Million Dollar Baby
With everything else that's going on in the world, I don't write as much about movies as I'd like to. But since tonight is Oscar night, and since I've got money riding this year, I figured it might be interesting to take a look at a couple of the nominees. This year, unlike say last year, there's an actual race for Best Picture. Million Dollar Baby is the favorite to win Best Picture according to most media outlets, but some still have The Aviator taking the big prize and the odds going either way look pretty close.

Fat Joe vs 50 Cent
Did everybody get a chance to check out Fat Joe calling up Hot 97 the other day and going off on Fiddy? It was pretty amusing in the way that it's always amusing listening to ignorant people trying to pick a fight with one another. Fat Joe even goes so far as to suggest that they could set up a date to duke it out old school. According to Joe, 50 ain't real because you never see him in the streets. I can't really speak on that just because I guess I'm not from the streets, but he does bring up some good points about 50 being disrespectful and trying to start beef with people just to hype his own shit. He also suggests that he co-produced "Candy Shop" with Scott Storch, but tossed it aside because it was teh ghey. With that I'd have to agree. No homo.

The boys are back in town
I had been meaning these past couple of weeks to get this Heartscab project back off the ground, but, if you look at the archives from this week and the last, obviously I got a little bit sidetracked with some issues. But now that that's (hopefully) all over and done with, it's time to get back down to business promoting this band.
The plan at this point is "borrow" some sounds and images from one of the many shitty young punk bands in the STL and use that to get us an acutal recording contract. I'll burn some CDs and mail them to all of the top music critics and record labels in the country, along with special liner notes written by myself and a promotional package consisting of various other writings and press clippings also created by yours truly. If this works out the way I plan, we might be making an appearance on TRL by the end of the year.

The J Roget is back on ice
I see our boy Pope JPII is back in the hospital again and may be undergoing an emergency tracheotomy. While this is good news for the contest (especially to cpt. rojo, who's got today's date locked up), now I'm kinda hoping that the old codger pulls through. First of all, he's got a new book to promote. Not that at a man in his condition could ever actually write a book, but, not unlike the many people who own a copy of The College Dropout, I don't think his core audience cares too much about that sort of thing anyway. Also, think of how cool it would be if the Pope made yet another comeback but had to speak using one of those Roger Troutman voice box thingies. That shit would just be incredible. And you thought the Pope was pimpish before!
