Rotten Beef….What's Eating You?

    “…and although there’s pain in my chest I still wish you the best…” This has got to be one of the best and most creative music videos to come along in years!

    It is the OFFICIAL Cee Lo Green F**K YOU VIDEO. Not the one you may have seen with the words but a video with real actors/singers and kids cursing in it, which is always fun to watch, right? 

    BUT BE WARNED: It has F-Bombs throughout!

    I was a big fan of MTV when it debuted back in the 1980’s. MTV = MUSIC Television. What happened to the MUSIC part? When I turn to the channel now, all I get is lame reality shows and NO MUSIC!

    I read recently they are changing the image and dropping the “Music Television” moniker. If that’s the case, why not change your name too? Unless the “M” now stands for Mundane!

    Now I’m watching CARTOON Network and they are starting to have reality shows like “What Would Happen”

    Well I can tell you what is gonna happen, I’m tuning out. Thank goodness for DVD’s!

    With Super Bowl XLIV a little over a week away, the talk isn’t usually about who is playing or the artist performing at the  mini concert at halftime, no the buzz on the streets is usually about…..wait…..commercials!

    Yes the only time people look forward to watching television commercials. Why? Well let’s just say if life really did imitate art, then some of these Super  Bowl Videos would be everybody’s dreams (at least one of mine).

    Don’t get me wrong, this years Super Bowl should prove to be one of the best games in Super Bowl history. Two top seeded teams, both with dome fields for home stadiums and high powered offenses. I for one am looking forward to watching a great game. But the commercials will be on my viewing list too. I’ll just have to make sure to use the little coaches room before the game!

    Ain’ts no more! The New Orleans Saints have made it to their 1st ever Super Bowl appearance in the 43 years of their franchise history. With the accomplishment of this feat by New Orleans, this now leaves only four teams that have never made it to the Big Game; Cleveland Browns, Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars and the Detroit Lions

    Super Bowl XLIV is going to be a game of firsts. Besides the Saints first ever big game appearance, it’s the 1st time since 1993 that the top 2 seeded teams met in the Super Bowl. And while dome teams historically have struggled in the playoffs, this will be the 1st time that two dome teams have met in a Super Bowl.

    The Indianapolis Colts opened as 3 point favorites as soon as the Saints defeated the Vikings. No matter who wins this game, these two high powered offenses stand to make this a Super Bowl fans will remember for ages!

    The NFC Championship game between the Saint/Vikings on Fox was awesome! And I know because the game was on their network, Fox has to promote their own shows, but I swear if I saw another American Idol commercial I was gonna puke!

    The category for this could also be considered ART as music is considered an art form by some people.

    So my bitch this week would be the fact that FCC censorship on music radio is so lame. As many of you may know, during a Super Bowl halftime show Janet Jackson “supposedly” had a wardrobe malfunction. Ever since then the FCC has been concerned with protecting out children from disgusting and pornographic material reaching the airwaves. Songs such as the Who classic “Who Are You”. That song has been on the radio for almost 30 years. Now all of a sudden that “classic” song is bad for young ears. Come on adults out there, YOU listened to it. Did it affect you? If you don’t want “your children” listening police them yourselves!

    I was out of town last week and heard something on the radio that shouldn’t have surprised me but completely did! It was the Pink Floyd classic song “Money”.  Now, I had heard the censored version of “Who Are You” before, but this one took me completely by surprise. A sample of the lyrics in the song went like this:

    Money, its a hit.
    Dont give me that do goody good {nothing but silence was here}.
    Im in the high-fidelity first class traveling set
    And I think I need a lear jet.

    Then after the song was over I heard a sweeper (station identifiying element) saying something like “we have so much music we don’t know where to put it all” and a YOUNG BOY’S voice comes in after and says “bend over, here it comes!” Humorous yes. Contradictory, I would say so! I would have rather not even heard the song if they were going to hack that classic the way they did!

    So where does the black end and white begin? Do people, as in parents, need to be more responsible and stop relying on others to police thier children? Should artistic freedom be restored (within reason)? You decide, you are the ones making these choices too.

    For years Tampa Bay had wanted a Major League Baseball team. In 1998 they finally got one. But guess what? No one goes to the games. Why? Because everyone promotes the team from the Bronx. Why go to see the Devil rays play unless the Yankees are in town?

     WTF is wrong with the media in Tampa Bay?? This is TAMPA BAY. NOT the Fucking South side of the Bronx! Why do these people continously put the Fucking Yankees as the top sports scores and news stories? Pull your heads out of Steinbrenners ass and serve YOUR COMMUNITY, not some one who buys you! Oh, I know all about how much Georgie does for Tampa Bay. But still, this is TAMPA BAY.

     There’s a new owner in town, the last one didn’t seem to do much for us except bring the team here. Support the new guy, Stuart Sternberg, he is trying to do for us!

     Those that know me, know I am a true Red Sox fan. But, I also work in the media and serve MY COMMUNITY! I will continue to promote the D-Rays (pronounced HOME TOWN TEAM)  until they decide to leave this town (which I wouldn’t be surprised because of all Steinbrenners drone-like followers)
