Good Morning, Hater!: Johnny Rotten

You don’t know who that is…but your parents might. He was (is?) the lead singer of a band called “The Sex Pistols”. They were a big deal in the 80′s (i think?). Mostly people just mention them in their “Music I like” section of blogs/FB or throw their name out at parties when they want to seem a lot hipper than they really are. Here’s a picture:

I bring this up because apparently dude hates Jay-Z. Just HATES him. They both released biographies earlier this year and (shockingly) Rotten’s didn’t do as well as Jay’s. However it IS up for an award. The NME Shockwave award (NOTE: People who hand these type of awards out ALWAYS want to look hipper than they are…hence nominating the dude from The Sex Pistols. UGH.)

Here’s the quote:

“Come on! I’m afraid what he does is parody to me. Jay-Z‘s just nonsense. I’ve never met him, but twice I’ve had to play a stage opposite when he was on. One was in Coachella and one was in Poland, and both times I pulled an enormous crowd away from him. He certainly must have noticed.”

Trust me. He didn’t. He would have to have fallen off the Everest size pile of money he was sitting on to notice. I’d say he probably doesn’t know who you are but HOV is a notorious fan of all genres so he probably does. However, without doing the math I’m almost certain Blueprint III alone has outsold all Sex Pistols material from that past two decades.

Charlie Sheen Needs A Conservator

Latest twist in the Charlie Sheen debacle: His family is allegedly talking taking over his life/finances via a conservator. For those who don’t follow the life of Britney Spears, a conservator is someone who gets legal rights over your finances and actions when you’re an adult who goes completely off the deep end crazy.

Think of it as being forced to be a teenager again.

Shockingly, it seems that his family doesnt buy that “home rehab” is the way to go for Sheen. His dad says he’s still getting worse and believes conservatorship is the only way.

Here’s an interesting question…if this was anyone other than the highest paid actor on television, would he be getting so many chances? Look at the situation: a former addict relapses and throws away money and career oppertunities? Sounds really familiar.

This is My Life

Props to my wife for snapping this picture last night after I crashed. I rescued this cat from a life of god know’s what, feed her, give her a safe home…and this is how she thanks me. And before you ask, yes…I’m a VERY heavy sleeper.
