Desafinado – "Out of Tune" George Michael & Astrud Gilberto (video + lyrics)

Desafinado – “Out of Tune”

Here’s one of the smoothest bossa nova pieces ever written.  Desafinado composed by Antonio Carlos Jobim with lyrics (in Portuguese) by Newton Mendonça. The English language lyrics were written by Jon Hendricks and Jessie Cavanaugh. Another English lyric, more closely based on the original Portuguese lyric (but not a translation) was written by Gene Lees, and appears on some recordings as well. The version by Stan Getz and Charlie Byrd (from the album Jazz Samba) was a major hit in 1962, reaching 15 and 4 on Billboard’s pop and easy-listening charts, respectively; their definitive rendering also reached No. 11 in the UK, whilst Ella Fitzgerald’s version made No. 38.

Desafinado Lyrics (Portuguese)

Se vocк disser que eu desafino amor
Saiba que isto em mim provoca imensa dor
Sу previlegiados tкm ouvido igual ao seu
Eu possuo apenas o que Deus me deu

Astrud Gilberto

Se vocк insiste em classificar
Como o meu comportamento de anti-musical
No lhes vou mentir, atй vou comentar
Que isso й bossa-nova
Que isso й muito natural
Que vocк no sabe nem sequer pressente
й que os desafinados tambйm tкm um cora?

Fotografei vocк na minha role-flix
Revelou-se a sua enorme ingratid?

Sу no poderб falar assim do meu amor
Que й o maior que vocк pode encontrar
Vocк passou a musica e esqueceu o principal
Que no peito dos desafinados
No fundo do peito bate calado
No peito dos desafinados tambйm bate um cora?

Desafinado (English Translation)

If you say that I am off key, my love
You must know that this will cause me great pain
Only the privileged have heard your equal
I possess only what God has given me

If you insist on classifying
My performance as unmusical
Lying to myself, I argue
That this is bossa nova
This is very natural

What you do not know or even sense
Is that my tune also has a heart
The photograph of you in my Rolleiflex
Reveals your enormous ingratitude

Do not speak thus of my love
That’s all you have been able to see

You have forgotten that music, above all,
Is what is carried within the tune
Deep within its breast there beats
Within the breast of my tune
There beats a heart

What Men Want

What Men Want

If men were honest they would say the following.  I am sure women think they know what men want, and I am sure they think men are so transparent and simple that they have them all figured out.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Men are not simple, and are just as complex and multifaceted as women.  It is illogical to think that because you have a vagina, that somehow you are transcended to a much loftier mind and being than a human with a penis.  If you actually believe that somehow your breasts make you more than a non-breast-having human, then you have fallen for the oldest trick in the book, marketing of “women”.

If you have been reading this blog for any length of time, you’ll notice, time and again, I shed light into the world that is psychobabble, marketing to the sexes and the social stratification builds set up simply to get you to buy into various notions, all for you to put your money down.  Think tanks all over America have come up some doozy complicated propaganda to get women to think one way, “I am equal to a man, if not better.”  The truth is, the people behind the marketing, have absolutely no care for women nor even consider them worthy of the things they pretend to give them, equality.  That is to say, these think tanks that came up with “women can work”, “women are equal to men”, and “women are better than men” nearly all despise women, and consider them inferior.  So why put out propaganda to get them to work and vote and other things?  The truth is simple.  If a woman buys into the notion that a woman’s place is not to raise children, take care of the home while hubby goes and wins the bread, then she drops kids and hubby and comes and works as well, and has her own money, to buy crap, without needing approval from her hubby.  Also, with women working the corporate fat cats have another cheap labor pool to exploit for profit.

So, now that you have an understanding what’s at work when you think you know what a man wants, you are broken down and suddenly realize that the whole notion that women are somehow: more intuitive, more nurturing, more sensible than a man is all hogwash.

Men are Driven by Sex

This is more propaganda put out by your local police, city government and nation government.  How can they make men appear to be driven by sex?  Easy, they deprive the population of sex, then turn around and put out scandalous information in the media / news that promotes sex.

No man, that is a man, is governed by the thought of sex.  If you find a male, driven by sex, he is an infant in the brain and no man at all.

At the end of the day, having sex may seem like an “adult” thing, but in reality, having lots of sex and constantly thinking about sex is a teenage thing.  Once a man has become and actual adult, he puts aside sexual thoughts and starts to think about much, much bigger things in life.

What could it benefit the country to have men in a juvenile state?  Easy, it’s called the police / nanny state.  That means that if the men have no matured to the point where they are beyond the adolescent phase, then the government is their father in all things and can tell them what to do.  If you don’t have real, thinking, adult men in the population, then you can control everyone.

Do not mistake this point to mean that men don’t want to have sex, which stupid people reading this blog sometimes do.  The point is that they are not GOVERNED by the wish for sex.  Sure, most everyone “wants” sex, but adults don’t think about it 24 / 7.

Moral: if you find a male that always talks about sex or wants to have sex with you, that male has not matured into adulthood yet, or never will.

Men Will Do Anything for Women

Sadly, I am sure you women have already concluded this is not true at all.  First off, some men, a very minor few, are homosexuals so, of course they will not do anything for you.  Secondly, unless the man is another immature brat, you cannot control him with your vagina.  Yeah, so point one is starting to take shape?  I know a lot of women that are with complete scrubs and control their guys with the threat of no vagina.

First of all, the very idea that you would think to control someone with them getting into your vagina is whorish, to begin with.  Now stop for a second.  Think back to commercials, jokes, movies where you saw this in play.  Even a silly comment like “none for you tonight honey”.  It indoctrinates you to buy into this whorish notion: I can control a man with my vagina.  STOP!  Now if you read point one carefully, you know what I am about to say.  If you can control a man with your vagina, he is not a man at all.

So manipulation aside, why do real men do things for women?  It is pretty obvious.  A human will do something nice for another human for only two reasons: they are a nice person [ which never happens in modern society ]; or they want to gain favor with that person [ even kids understand this concept of reverse manipulation ].  So, if you, the woman, think you are lording over someone because they do things for you, take a step back and realize what you do for them in return.  Don’t you feel obligated if someone does something for you?  Everyone does.  Isn’t that how the dating scene is?  It’s like rule #1, do something for the other person and they will date / fall in love / marry you … eventually.  Trust me, it’s a backwards notion, and a very immature way of approaching love.  There we go again with the immaturity.

Moral: the very thought that you would control someone with your vagina is a whorish notion. That aside, if you can control a male with your vagina, he is not a man to begin with.

Men Only Want One Thing From a Woman

Sadly, it breaks my heart to even hear women or worse, men say this.  Again, only an immature male would say this.  Men do not want sex from women, as the be all end all.  If push came to shove there are plenty of sheep and goat in the world that men could stick their penis in.  Remember that.  In the 1700s there was a small town that was plagued with witch hunts.  They killed so many women, as witches, that they had nearly none left of any decent age.  The men took to having sex with sheep after awhile.  Sad but true.

Men want a myriad of things from women.  First and foremost is companionship.  As much as the commercials and TV and movies say men are afraid of commitment, it is not true.  Notice how much this is said all over the place: “men are afraid of commitment”.  Unless a man is genuinely uninterested in you, they will date / marry you.  There is tremendous marketing to get you AND men to buy into the notion that men are afraid of commitment.  Why?  Because then you won’t seek a boyfriend or you’ll sabotage all your relationships and go get a job yourself, and spend your money by yourself.  See the scam?  It’s one big circle.

Men want someone that likes them, just for being them.  What does that mean?  That means, when he’s 40, you don’t get bored of him because he lost his muscles, or going bald or doesn’t play basketball every Saturday.  It means you love the person inside, not outside.  Love is an inward thing, not an outward thing.

America is so caught up in looks, as opposed to overseas.  Look at movies from other countries and you’ll immediately notice that their actors are not as polished, porcelain, plastic as ours.  So the entire fake look thing trickles down all through our society.  When was the last time you went shopping for clothes and why did you buy the clothes you bought?  That’s the real question.  Why do you buy the things you buy?  Looks.  So if a man gets signs from you that you’re into him only for his looks, after awhile he’ll treat you the same way. And, we pick up on that real quick.  The couple down the road got a divorce at 40, because he said she got fat.  Is he a bastard for that?  Or, the truth is, she treated him like a trophy husband from day one so when she lost her looks, he moved on.

Moral: be sure the man you’re with is not just into you for the sex.  Why?  Because he can get sex from anyone, anything AND it doesn’t have to be a woman.  Real talk.  It doesn’t have to be human.  Real talk.

The Lowest Common Denominator

When girls get together they say and act one way.  When they are alone or one on one, they say and act differently.  Men are no exceptions to this.  The expectations are totally different of course.  The sad part is, as the group gets larger, everyone gets dumber.  The same is true for women as it is for men.  The lowest common denominator is the rule.  Noone in the history of man, has ever been brave enough to appear smarter than anyone in a group they wish to be part of.  Let me put that another way.  To be a part of a group, everyone feels they have to belong to the group.  So, they make sure they don’t say anything to make them stand out.  The easiest way NOT to stand out, is to appear to be smarter than anyone in the group.

If that is true then, when these men get together the dumbest person in the group is the guide.  Going back to my other points, the most immature man in the group is how the group will act.  Once the man is part of the group he learns from the group.  So if 2 men in a group of 5 are immature adolescent sex fiends, then the group will be also.  The lowest common denominator wins.

So when you see a man in a group that you like and he acts like a douche bag to you, understand what is going on.  He is expected to act like a douche bag.

Also, when men get together and the dumbest person only thinks about sex, all the men in the group will seek approval from the group by relating sex stories.

Another way and another aspect of this lowest common denominator is the “misery loves company” group.  This is a group of men that will go out of their way to say and do the most depressing things imaginable to impress the group.  Ever wonder why a guy who scratches himself or breaks something gets up and says “boy wait till the guys hear this”.  Well now you know why.

What to Take From This

At the end of the day, a man wants one thing.  No, that’s a lie.  That what everyone wants you to believe.  The reality is, a man wants a myriad of things:

  • companionship till he’s old and gray
  • someone to share moments with
  • someone who shares the same interests as him
  • someone to take care of his household
  • someone to take care of and have his children [ i know that sounds old fashioned but it is still STILL true ]
  • someone that respects him AND respects herself [ being with a whore is fun when you’re 17, but not when you’re 27 ]
  • someone to take care of [ I know, sounds weird, but a man still wants to be a man – me Tarzan you Jane ]
A lot of women miss the boat.  On TV it seems that only cool people are on.  The whole Waltons type of family is dead and gone off of TV, but the reality is that is how men want to live.  
I hate to say it but, if you do not submit yourself to a man and allow him to be the man of the house, then more than likely, either you don’t have a man or your relationship is doomed to fail.  A man doesn’t grow up and leave the house to submit to another father figure.  At some point he has to become the father figure.  If you’re so caught up in this women’s lib thing that you cannot see this, then there’s no hope for you.  A boy cannot be a father.  I know many try, but … yeah the proof is in the pudding.
At some point you have to be a woman to your man, and not a man to your man.  Now that’s just creepy when it’s broken down like that.  But, so many “modern” women are trying to be a man to their man.  Honey, if that’s the case then you don’t want a man or shall I say, he don’t want a woman.  If you get my drift.  LOL

How to Get Out of the Economic Depression in America Today

Getting the Government Out of the Picture

Everyone in the belt seems to only listen to people that tells them to keep spending.  Somehow they think that we can spend our way out of this bubble economy.  Of course, that is completely illogical.  You cannot spend your way out of a bubble.  It makes you sense politically, economically or otherwise.  The only way to really turn this economic depression around is to stop spending and make cut backs.

End the Useless Department of Education

There are whole departments in the government that are completely obsolete, irrelevant and unnecessary.  They have names like department of education, IRS and homeland security.  The names seem completely necessary and we’ve been told that not having them and other would mean government collapse.  But, what is not said, is that they were mostly formed in this last generation’s lifetime, not 200 years ago.  Everyone shies away from the phrase spending cuts, because they always fear that the first thing on the chopping block will be some monstrous cut to roads or something equally crippling.  That’s the fear that has been put into the country, but the federal budget can be cut in nearly 1/2 before touching anything even close to necessary to run the government.

For example, a huge portion of the military budget, for instance, is spent on people not in the military at all.  People who have nothing to do with the running of any military actions.  They are simply leeching onto the military spending and bleeding it for all its worth.  However, when it comes to the floor to cut those people out of military spending, they turn it around to look as if the government is trying to cut military spending and not the leeches from the department.  A massive political campaign is started to change the rhetoric to make it look like “military” cuts would mean less troops, instead of less leeches.  Spending in the military alone could be halved and no military action would even be affected, due to this bloated budget for those who serve no purpose but to suck on the teet of American tax payers.

Unemployed Job Fair

With spending back to honest form you have to turn to taxes.  The single most honest way to create jobs via the government is one that rests in the only government’s power to “create” jobs.  Honestly speaking, the government cannot “create” a job.  Not even a single one.  A “job” is something that generates profit for someone that is building capital.  The government does not build capital.  The government gains only tax payer dollars.  They do not generate anything.  So a government job, by definition, is not a true job.  So Obama and friends cannot create jobs by doubling census taker jobs, a temporary fix anyway.  It is all more rhetoric anyway.  Government can only perform one roll when it comes to the job market, hinder more or hinder less in job creation or destruction.  That is to say, the only role government plays in the job market is to get in the way of business to create jobs.

Since the government cannot create jobs of its own accord, and once we understand that their only role in the job market is one of hindering creation, then we have to understand how they hinder it and remove those hindrances, taxes.  The burden of taxation on employers and employees alike is monumental in the hindrance of job creation.  Of course regulation is the 2nd factor, but more prominent is taxation.  So to get out of the way of job creation, the only way to get out of this slump is through:

“a 100% payroll tax holiday for both employers and employees.  Instead of putting money into the economy, [through inflationary quantitative easing ] relieve the burden from employers and employees.  That will generate jobs like nothing else in the history of the US.”

Obama proposed and passed a “payroll tax holiday”, but in actuality it was a 2% reduction in SS collection, all the while income taxes rose, so there was no net gain for anyone except a few wealthier workers.  Most laborers saw a net increase in taxes and less take home pay.  It is this kind of double talk and double dealing, that is killing any honest effort to get the economy going.  This administration is literally bankrupting the country and the middle class, while putting on a show of being for the people.

Illegal Immigration

Many Illegal Aliens are Criminals Fleeing the Law

Finally, on job creation, we must have a massive exodus of illegal immigration.  Advocates for illegal immigration, do so for ulterior motives that are not in the best interest of the country.  Illegal immigration creates a substrata of labor that is even lower than entry level pay.  Illegal immigration undercuts even low paying wages.  You can wrest massive unemployment directly on the shoulders of illegal immigration, and this is very openly documented and researched.  It has become politicized by those same advocates for illegal immigration.  The reality is that state governments are finally seeing through the rhetoric and realizing that their massive segments of the population on unemployment are directly caused by illegal immigrants in their state.  They are taking it upon themselves to finally make a move and upholding the illegal immigration laws and removing the illegal immigrants themselves.

Make no mistake, over 90% of all illegal immigrants are Mexican nationals.  Advocates for illegal immigration always puts the onus on us to sympathize for those illegal immigrants by pointing out the terrible conditions Mexico has.  However, they never put the responsibility on the very illegal aliens themselves, but somehow make us, the US, the responsible party for having a more stable society than Mexico.  The reality is that Mexico probably needs to have a revolution to turn its country around.  But either way, that is not the responsibility of the US government, nor the states, nor its citizens.  That is the responsibility of the Mexican people and the Mexican government.  The Mexican government devalued its own currency on purpose, rendering their own upper middle class, poor, overnight, and rending those under that class into abject poverty.  That has nothing to do with the United States.  And, it should not be thrust upon the shoulders of our citizens and middle class to bear the brunt of a decision made by the Mexican government.

All of this illegal immigration has become so highly politicized that noone dares even mention the true reason for the state Mexico is in right now.  They only talk about how poor people are and what terrible straights the people are in.  They never mention why there is so much poverty.  If the upper middle-class were thrust into poverty overnight, of course the country is going to be thrown into social unrest.  But that is the responsibility of their government and their people have to hold them responsible, not come over here illegally and cast millions of Americans into poverty, while creating a new underclass of citizenry.

FAIR research suggests that “between 40 and 50 percent of wage-loss among low-skilled Americans is due to the immigration of low-skilled workers. Some native workers lose not just wages but their jobs through immigrant competition. An estimated 1,880,000 American workers are displaced from their jobs every year by immigration; the cost for providing welfare and assistance to these Americans is over $15 billion a year.” The National Research Council, part of the National Academy of Sciences, found in 1997 that the average immigrant without a high school education imposes a net fiscal burden on public coffers of $89,000 during the course of his or her lifetime. The average immigrant with only a high school education creates a lifetime fiscal burden of $31,000. [ cite – Center for Immigration Studies report Immigration From Mexico – Assessing the Impact on the United States, subsection Impact of Mexican Immigration on Public Coffers. ]

Many states are now adopting Arizona’s model of immigration policy.  The tax paying people who are now out of a job are clamoring too loudly for them not to listen.  The Obama administration may try to socialize and communize everything and smooth everything over with a veneer of “we’re all in this together”, but the reality is, the unemployed are not in this together.  They are out, and children and wives are starving.  That is a reality, no politics can brush aside.  Those same Mexican illegal aliens also never pay taxes and drain the economy by sending upwards of 70% of their payroll checks back to Mexico, making it the 2nd largest GDP for Mexico.  So not only are Americans losing jobs, they are also being drained of money.

Shakaama Running for Office

Should I Run for Office?

There I was sitting in a bar.  As is my custom, I’m friends with the bartender and another customer walks in.  Being the king of France, as I am wont to act, I demanded the bartender introduce me.  The person was no more than a pinball maintenance guy, not that there’s anything wrong with that.  He asked me what I do and I replied, I write articles online and report on local events, sports, financial and fitness, with a concentration of elevating Black people with real issues, such as financial education.  He pressed me further on the last point.  I said that there are no Black leaders to have ever existed in America, excluding those that took office in the senate and house right after the abolition of slavery aside.  And, that the alleged leaders who call themselves Black leaders, all have one note “civil rights”.  I further went on to say that the elevation of Black people is not through any legislation but through promoting promoting and promoting Black owned businesses.  This model would create wealth in the Black population and elevate Black people without any necessity for any legislation.

Is the Country Ready for a Pure-Breed Black Man?

To my surprise the guy turns to me and asks, “ARE YOU RUNNING FOR OFFICE, I’D VOTE FOR YOU?!”

I was really caught off guard.  The guy in question, and everyone in the bar, was white.  The question threw me.  I was asked the same thing when I attended Libertarian party meetings.  Which was, again, white only, except for me, and this was before Obama was even a twinkle in the American public’s eye.

I don’t know if it’s just my vocabulary or looks or what, but people gravitate toward me in liver political arenas.  So the question is simple.

  • Would you vote someone with my very ultra Black-conservative views?
  • Is the country ready for a Black-conservative?
  • Is the country ready for an educated pure-breed Black man, in the public sector?

Pure-Breed Black Woman
I ask those questions because, in all reality, half-breed Black people really are not considered Black, by both white and Black people.  Only pure-breed Black people are considered Black.  A pure-breed Black face is what keeps racists up at night.  A pure-breed Black face is what makes white women clutch their purse tighter as they cross the street to walk on the other side.  A pure-breed Black face is what half-breed Black people dispise, self-hating I know, but it’s true.  
Electing a pure-breed Black man such as myself, would mean a final nail in the coffin of colorism in America as we know it, and finally Black people being accepted into the general population.

Gay Pride?

What is Gay Pride?

[ WARNING: this entire article is at a scientific level, the likes of which Americans normally are incapable of reading or understanding.  The intended audience is for the intellectual and not the general public at large.  The recommended reader should have at least 12 credits in psychology, logic and sociology to be able to comprehend the material.  As such the language and vocabulary used is not for those with merely a high school education.  Those who are capable of understanding both the vocabulary and discussion are welcomed to leave a comment in the comment box below.  The title “What is Gay Pride” has virtually nothing to do with the article, but we felt it was better than writing: “The Gender Role Indoctrination That Contributes to Abnormal Sexual Behavior and Marketing Schemes to Identify, Catalog and Capture Such Behavior”.  You have been aptly warned. ]

If We’re All the Same, Noone Can Market to Us

I bet corporate America is laughing their butts off.  I bet corporate America is tickled pink [ no pun intended ].  The entire country is divided over an issue that is not an issue.  The issue?  “Gay” people.  It is now such a hot topic and noone has stopped to ask, why is this even a topic?  Noone has stopped to wonder, how this even became a topic.

The impetus has been placed on “straight” people to conform to the “gay” lifestyle.  In what way?  The straight people must now acknowledge something in the open, that refined people keep unspoken of ANYWAY.  The country is so far removed from being dignified that my previous sentence completely just went over 90% of the country’s heads.  Let me explain what it means.  A lady or a gentleman does NOT discuss their most intimate details with anyone.  The entire point of the word intimate is that it is private and only shared with one person.

However, because of the lifestyle of a certain group of people, corporate America has taken upon themselves to vehemently pursue this outing.

Target Market Segmentation

Target Market Segmentation

You don’t understand? Keep reading.  Here’s the conspiracy in a nut shell.  “Gay” people earn more money, save more money and have more leisure money than any other group identified by sexual orientation or relationship status.  “Gay” people have no children [ statistically speaking ] to waste money on, and therefore get to keep tons of their money.  Also, because “Gay” people have no children or spouses, they have the time and leisure to dedicate to their careers.  Because of this, they tend to do better at their careers and earn more money than a “Straight” person, burdened with wife and children.  This extra money is what corporate America is after.  So how to get that money:

  • first you must change the mentality of the country so that those indulging in homosexual activity identify themselves: coming out the close is invented
  • you must change the sentiment of the country so that these newly found gay people are not thoroughly castigated: attempts at passing hate crime legislation is started, based on sexual orientation; anti-discrimination laws are changed to include, based on sexual orientation
  • you must show the newly found gay people in a positive light: all forms of media portray gay people as being refined and having stereotypes that are good / classy / wholesome
  • finally you must market the hell out of gay specific products based on all of the propaganda put out “for” gay people
The reality is, there is nothing that separates a “gay” person from anyone else on the planet.  They are not a different color, race, gender.  Furthermore there is no biological impetus that has ever suggested that being “gay” is anything other than a learned behavior.  This is according to leading endocrinologists, doctors, surgeons, psychologists, psychiatrists, medical studies, laboratory studies, top universities.  While many in the national media tries to appease the now highly visible “gay” population by saying it is biological or that they are “born that way”, the science is completely and utterly against them.  Being “gay” or “lesbian” means nothing more than a person that indulges in a specific sexual activity.

Rules of Market Segmentation

  1. To be considered attractive, a segment must be large enough in size to generate meaningful revenue and also align well with existing or developing company strengths and future growth objectives.
  2. To be actionable, a segment must be sufficiently differentiated from other segments, stable enough over time to justify business planning, and understood well enough in terms of profiling to be accessible through advertising, marketing, distribution, and other targeting efforts.
Market Segmentation
We want people to recognize when they are being used for profit and gain, and not buy into propaganda put out by people that do NOT have their best interest at heart.  We are all human.  As such, humans, insomuch as the animal kingdom goes, have nearly no institual impulses.  99% of all human activity, except eating and pooping, is learned from one generation to the next.  
We propose that if there were not such a huge gender divide around the world, that maybe, JUST MAYBE, noone would be identifiable as being “gay”.  That means that the roles of women and men were not so different, then we would not have people desiring to be women or men.  But, that would take an overhaul of the entire world, now wouldn’t it, and it’s just a theoretical scientific hypothesis in psychology.  [ citation: Sexual Orientation, Gender Role Expression, and Stereotyping:  The Intersection Between Sexism and Sexual Prejudice (Homophobia) ]

We’re sorry to be the ones to burst your bubble, but the entire “gay” issue is nothing more than labeling and marketing for money. The same thing has been done to Black people in music: identify a sub-segment and market to them. Remember public enemy, PM dawn, and the enlightened Black rap movement? It is all just marketing. The entire Black liberation movement … supposedly “grass roots” and “underground” was neither. It was started, implemented and organized by huge record labels to sell records. With “gay” people, it’s the gift that keeps on giving, everyone can get a piece of the pie: big pharma, clothing industry, music industry, the “arts”. If you were to remove all “gay” clientele from those industries, they would all, except big pharma,  probably fail immediately.  Some singers, actors, comedians and theater shows have made 90% of their money off of “gay” people, all the while not even being much of a fan of “gay” people, but their marketing departments sure were.

Heidi Klum Topless

Heidi Klum Topless

In an effort to get people to watch the dying show “Project Runway”, executive producer Heidi Klum gets virtually nude for the new ad campaign for the show.    Heidi Klum hosts a reality series where aspiring fashion designers compete for a chance to break into the industry. Each week, a designer is eliminated from the competition after exhibiting their work in front of a judges’ panel.  After countless instances of truly fashion forward designers being booted off and mediocre fashion shows, it is no wonder she’s taking her clothes off in repressed America to generate hype over the show.

In new ads for Lifetime’s “Project Runway, Heidi Klum is shown from the hips up wearing nothing but a pink tie,” with an arm strategically draped over her chest.

“This is definitely sexier than past campaigns we’ve done for Project Runway,” says Klum. “I guest you could say ‘Hans and Franz’ are celebrating season nine!”

In addition to previously announced celebrity guest judge Kim Kardashian, Runway is adding Malin Ackerman, Christina Ricci and Zoe Saldana to this season’s roster of fashion icons as judges. Michael Kors, and Nina Garcia return as judges. Tim Gunn returned to mentor the competing designers.

How to Buy the Same Watch President Obama Wears

How to Buy the Same Watch President Obama Wears

He’s no fashion trend setter, but he is the president.  President Barack Obama is the leading man of the free world.  As such, he commands the attention of a lot of people.  Not only does such attention extend to all of his words and speeches, but how he looks as well.  Not too few people notice he is not goofy looking, like Bush, or  homely like Carter.  He glides into a room and commands attention, all in one fell swoop.  While everyone cannot afford a $5,000 suit or a $2,000 tie / shoes, most anyone can ante up to buy the same exact watch he wears for a few hundred dollars.

Surprised?  Yeah, the price is pretty amazing.  The couple, Michelle and Barack, have some things in common, wearing sensibly priced clothes.  Remember she made it a point to mention, not too few of her dresses were from Old Navy, which tops out at about $30,00 for a dress.  While his clothes were never in question, they did mention he has a “body man”, someone that dresses him and makes sure he is looking neat and clean at all times, among other things.

President Obama has worn the Jorg Gray 6500 Chronograph on many historic occasions since August 2007 and most recently as President of The United States, with sightings including Election Night, the Inaugural Ball and Inauguration Day.

The Commemorative Edition Jorg Gray 6500 Chronograph offered here by Presidential Watches is the same make and model watch worn by President Barack Obama.

Probably the watch will be a collectors item one day. Not everyone even knows the company and watch exist. I can see people putting this one ebay in the near future.

It’s "Too Darn Hot" Ella Fitzgerald (video + lyrics)

Too Darn Hot

Here’s an oldie but goodie, in honor of summer.  I live in vegas, so already I am suffering from turning into chocolate syrup already.  Here’s Ella Fitzgerald singing Cole Porter’s Too Darn Hot, enjoy.

Too Darn Hot – Lyrics

It’s too darn hot!
It’s too darn hot!
I’d like to sup with my baby tonight,
Refill the cup with my baby tonight.
I’d like to sup with my baby tonight,
Refill the cup with my baby tonight,
But I ain’t up to my baby tonight
‘Cause it’s too darn hot

It’s too darn hot!
It’s too darn hot!
I’d like to coo with my baby tonight,
And pitch the woo with my baby tonight.
I’d like to coo with my baby tonight,
And pitch the woo with my baby tonight.
But brother you fight my baby tonight
‘Cause it’s too darn hot

According to the Kinsey Report
Ev’ry average man you know
Much prefers his love-y dove-y to court
When the temperature is low,
But when the thermometer goes ‘way up
And the weather is sizzling hot,
Mister pants for romance is not

‘Cause it’s too, too,
Too darn hot!
It’s too darn hot!
It’s too, too darn hot!
I’d like to coo with my baby tonight
And pitch the woo with my baby tonight
I’d like to coo with my baby tonight,
Pitch the woo with my baby tonight
But brother, you fight my baby tonight
‘Cause it’s too darn hot!

According to the Kinsey Report
Ev’ry average man you know
Much prefers his lovey dovey to court
When the temperature is low
But when the thermometer goes ‘way up
And the weather is sizzling hot,
Mr. Gob for his squab,
A marine for his queen,
A G.I. for his cutie-pie is not

‘Cause it’s too, too,
Too darn hot!
It’s too darn hot!
It’s too darn hot
It’s too darn hot
It’s too darn hot
It’s too darn hot!

Roger Ebert Censored by Facebook

Roger Ebert Facebook Page Shut Down

Earlier today, the Facebook page of Chicago Sun-Times film critic Roger Ebert was removed for violating the company’s “terms of conditions” following a controversial tweet about Jackass star Ryan Dunn who died Monday in a car crash after posting a photo of himself drinking with friends an hour before the accident.  I did not post anything about Ryan Dunn, because he is not the type of person I would want to promote to anyone. I am sure he was one of the inspirations behind the movie: Idiocracy.

Chicago Sun-Times Critic Roger Ebert

What was the controversy about?  Apparently  Mr. Ebert simply tweeted:  “He drank, he drove, 2 people died.”    So what was the big deal?  The big deal was that the friends and family were trying to defend the Jackass, as if he were a well respected member of society, when the reality is, the guy made his life denegrating the very society he lived in, i.e. America.  Here’s a guy that contributed to idiot kids killing themselves after watching his antics.  Here’s a guy that is one of the people on my list of “those that are contributing to the downfaull of America”.  And, the friends and family are trying to defend him, when in the last minutes of his life he posts a pic of him being blasted out of his mind on alcohol?

Facebook Warning After Page Removal

I don’t wish death on anyone.  However, because an idiot dies, does not instantly upgrade him to sainthood.  People say, “don’t speak ill of the dead,”  however, if you live your life in a certain way, you have to pay the consequences of such living.  So Mr. Ebert called out the facts as he saw them.  For his simple tweet, the entire facebook page erupted into so much vulgar cursing, which to any sane adult’s mind shows you exactly what type of scum you’re dealing with.

Facebook later restored Mr. Ebert’s page, citing that it was a complete error that it was taken down and not due to any controversy over the arguing going on on his page.

Who is Jon Huntsman?

Will the Real Jon Huntsman Please Stand Up

In case Dancing with the Stars or American Idol is your idea of news, you may have no idea who Jon Huntsman is.  In short he’s a republican trying for the White House.  Most people are still recovering from the awfully long and tiring Obama circus.  People turned out by the millions to vote for a Black man only to once again be smacked in the face by him completely lying to us.  After all, Obama is just another politician, and people forgot that, for a second.  Ironically Jon Huntsman was appointed ambassador to China BY Obama.  Readers might be confused how this could happen, you know republican appointed by democrat.  Here’s a big clue, I’ve already been telling you there is no difference between them.  The parties make sure there is no 3rd party in government.  We basically have no choice, just an illusion of a choice, but at the end of the day we have a choice of only two.

Jon Huntsman, So Presidential

So this Jon Hunstman is trying to appear to be a great republican.  But in reality, he has absolutely no personal identity.  He is a mixture of:

  • Mitt Romney
  • Tim Pawlenty
  • Ronald Reagan
  • Gay
  • Social Conservative
  • Fiscal Conservative
In other words, he’s a puppet.  Literally he is surrounded by people telling him what to do, what to say and what not to say.  You would not be voting for a president, you’d be voting for a mail clerk.

In one breath he says he votes for pro-lifers, who see themselves as standing up for family, i.e. marriage, while in the same breath votes for gay marriage.  He is literally talking out of both sides of his mouth.  
In one breath he rails against Obama and the policies he’s instituted that has lead the country into an economic depression, while in the same breath rails against republicans calling them soft on social policies that are massively building a huge budget deficit.

This is  how politics is played.  You get a malleable tool like this Huntsman guy, and tell him what whatever group he is standing in front, wants to hear.  It is no wonder he is at the bottom of the pack.  He is not a leader.  But, neither is Obama.
Remember, getting an A in public speaking does not make you a leader.

Heidi Montag Works Out 14 Hours a Day

Heidi Montag Works Out 14 Hours a Day

Heidi Montag is in the news again.  This time it’s not for getting plastic surgery, but for losing weight.  How did she do it?  She worked out.  Pure and simple.  Of course the extreme case was that she stayed in the gym overly long, but she did lose 27lbs in only 2 months.  For those who are unsure how fast that is, let me tell you that you should safely lose 2lbs a week if you work out heavily.  Yes, that is 2lbs of permanent weight, not water weight. So at most she should have lost 16lbs.  However, add on to that, that she is already thin.  Why is that important?  because a fat person losing 27lbs is extremely easy.  This girl went from 130lbs to 103lbs.

Heidi Montag at Las Vegas’ “Wet Republic”

She stopped by Las Vegas “Wet Republic” and took many pics with runaway bride of Hugh Hefner, Crystal Harris.  The two basically had a photo shoot to show off Heidi’s new body.  The thing is, Heidi’s new body is not bone thin, she is very athletic.  So not only do I think her weight loss was probably very hard won, but also extremely difficult for the last few pounds.  The entire time she was lifting weights, so she was putting on muscle weight, while taking off fat weight.

The end result is a smoking hot body, awesome abs and not an ounce of cellulite to be found anywhere.  While obviously working out 14 hours a day is ridiculous, the end result coming in a short 2 months is amazing.  Many top models and athletes and people in the spotlight workout this much or only slightly less.  This is what the general public is not told.  You cannot have a fantastic looking body, while sitting on your duff all day, nor by only working out 30 minutes twice a week.  It cannot be done.  It takes work, to look “perfect:”.

The terrible thing about Hollywood is that very often, stars will not just workout, but get plastic surgery done to their bodies, on top of working out.  So the general public marvels at their bodies, and tries to emulate it, all to failure.  Make sure if you’re trying to workout, that you set your visualized goal on a realistic, natural goal, not an unnatural one.

Ode to My Father

Ode to My Father

[ this original work of art shall not be copied, nor reproduced.]

You held me in your overly large hands.
Your newborn son lay quivering with joy.
Peacefully, I slumber in your large hands.
The heir is born to you, your newborn boy.

I held your finger in my curled full fist.
Walking beside you, two steps to your one,
carefully clutching so I may not slip.
A toddler’s glee for father’s joy and fun.

You held my hand in yours along the way,
a big boy now walks beside you in step.
The joy of your son growing fast each day.
Too fast, you wish his youth could be so kept.

     From life to life, you gave your life to me.
     From being held newborn, I now run free.

I held her hands in mine when love first called,
quivering with nerves at my first kiss.
You caught me, held me, righted my first fall.
love gone so soon, joy gone no love no bliss.

I shook his hand that handed me a sheaf.
certificate of completion it read.
Academic study complete my degree.
A new life, new man, new shoes I must tread.

I shook their hands my constituency.
Their gleaming eyes their hope I did behold.
Cult of personality done with ease.
Never sought your wisdom, too dumb too old.

     From love to man from fools to run for office.
     From here I stand upon the precipice.

I held your hands in mine shaking with age.
My face so near to yours for you to see.
So chilled was I to witness this life stage.
A somber moment, not joyful for me.

I held her hands in mine mother’s broke heart,
tears like rivers streaming down her old face.
Your life ending, fleeting soon it will part.
And,death’s mask steals over your countenance.

I held your hand again this one last time.
so frail so dry and small they were to hold.
One last goodbye your boy now have I mine.
The story goes on again to be told.

     From life to life, you gave your life to me.

     From life to life I have my own to see.

Sunday: Can You Tell the Difference Between Mithra and Jesus?

Mithra and Jesus I Can’t Tell the Difference Can you?

Take this quiz.  See can you tell the difference between Mithra and Jesus.  What is really mind boggling is that I guarantee your minister / pastor / bishop / priest has no clue about this.  The cover up is so old that even they don’t know about it.  But, I seriously want you to see if you can tell the difference between them.  Keep in mind that Mithra was already 5,000 years old before Jesus suddenly appears out of nowhere.  And, Mithra was the state religion of Rome.  All celebrations were to Mithra.  Now, take the quiz and see if you can tell a difference between Mithra and Jesus.

Birth of Sun God Mithra, All Were Celebrated on Dec 25th

Roman Emperor Constantine, who made Christianity legal throughout Rome, was a worshipper of Sol Invictus/ the invincible Sun. Sol Invictus is an amalgamation of trans-cultural solar deities including Mithras, and Apollo. Constantine recognized Jesus’ status in that pantheon almost immediately. Many of the Stories of his life and activities are symbolic of celestial events.

In modern times, ancient solar symbols are plentiful in Christianity .

Heaven and Hell

  • The worshippers of Mithras held strong beliefs in a celestial heaven and an infernal hell. 
  • They believed that the benevolent powers of the God would sympathize with their suffering and grant them the final justice of immortality and eternal salvation in the world to come. 
  • They looked forward to a final day of judgment in which the dead would resurrect, and to a final conflict that would destroy the existing order of all things to bring about the triumph of light over darkness. 
  • There is basically very little difference between the beliefs of the two systems, in respect to their concepts of Heaven, Hell and purgatory. 

Many of the Catholic and Orthodox beliefs, and legends that do not arise out of the Bible or Apocrypha have their roots in Mithraism and related Pagan belief systems.

Sunday: Are You Worshiping Mithras?

Are You Worshiping Mithras?

I am sure Christians reading this are going to bury their head in the sand and think we are simply being blasphemous.  But, we present to you complete facts of where your religion actually comes from.  We have researched long and hard to figure out where Christianity came from.  The original church, the Catholic church, seems anything BUT holy and more a political branch for some hidden agenda.  With very little effort and putting forth just the basic facts everyone agrees on of what do Christians believe, up pops the god Mithra or Mitra.  As you keep reading you’ll find that there never was a Jesus Christ and the entire religion is stolen and simply renamed Christianity.  Mithraism is then called pagan.  The end question is why rename a religion that celebrates and believes in the same exact thing?  For that answer, you’ll have to wait till next week.  Here I present to you everything Mithraism is.  If you are not convinced after reading this, that you are actually a worshiper of Mithra, then you’re just an IMBECILE.

Mithra Slaying the Bull

Imbecile: A person of moderate to severe mental retardation having a mental age of from three to seven years and generally being capable of some degree of communication and performance of simple tasks under supervision.

The Vatican was built upon the grounds previously devoted to the worship of Mithra (600 B.C.). The Orthodox Christian hierarchy is nearly identical to the Mithraic version. Virtually all of the elements of Orthodox Christian rituals, from miter, wafer, water baptism, alter, and doxology, were adopted from the Mithra and earlier pagan mystery religions. The religion of Mithra preceded Christianity by roughly six hundred years. Mithraic worship at one time covered a large portion of the ancient world. It flourished as late as the second century. The Messianic idea originated in ancient Persia and this is where the Jewish and Christian concepts of a Savior came from. Mithra, as the sun god of ancient Persia, had the following karmic similarities with Jesus:

  1. Mithra was born on December 25th as an offspring of the Sun. Next to the gods Ormuzd and Ahrimanes, Mithra held the highest rank among the gods of ancient Persia. He was represented as a beautiful youth and a Mediator. Reverend J. W. Lake states: “Mithras is spiritual light contending with spiritual darkness, and through his labors the kingdom of darkness shall be lit with heaven’s own light; the Eternal will receive all things back into his favor, the world will be redeemed to God. The impure are to be purified, and the evil made good, through the mediation of Mithras, the reconciler of Ormuzd and Ahriman. Mithras is the Good, his name is Love. In relation to the Eternal he is the source of grace, in relation to man he is the life-giver and mediator” (Plato, Philo, and Paul, p. 15).
  2. He was considered a great traveling teacher and masters. He had twelve companions as Jesus had twelve disciples. Mithras also performed miracles.
  3. Mithra was called “the good shepherd, “the way, the truth and the light, redeemer, savior, Messiah.” He was identified with both the lion and the lamb.
  4. Mithra Slaying Bull – British Museum
  5. The International Encyclopedia states: “Mithras seems to have owed his prominence to the belief that he was the source of life, and could also redeem the souls of the dead into the better world … The ceremonies included a sort of baptism to remove sins, anointing, and a sacred meal of bread and water, while a consecrated wine, believed to possess wonderful power, played a prominent part.”
  6. Chambers Encyclopedia says: “The most important of his many festivals was his birthday, celebrated on the 25th of December, the day subsequently fixed — against all evidence — as the birthday of Christ. The worship of Mithras early found its way into Rome, and the mysteries of Mithras, which fell in the spring equinox, were famous even among the many Roman festivals. The ceremonies observed in the initiation to these mysteries — symbolical of the struggle between Ahriman and Ormuzd (the Good and the Evil) — were of the most extraordinary and to a certain degree even dangerous character. Baptism and the partaking of a mystical liquid, consisting of flour and water, to be drunk with the utterance of sacred formulas, were among the inauguration acts.”
  7. Prof. Franz Cumont, of the University of Ghent, writes as follows concerning the religion of Mithra and the religion of Christ: “The sectaries of the Persian god, like the Christians’, purified themselves by baptism, received by a species of confirmation the power necessary to combat the spirit of evil; and expected from a Lord’s supper salvation of body and soul. Like the latter, they also held Sunday sacred, and celebrated the birth of the Sun on the 25th of December…. They both preached a categorical system of ethics, regarded asceticism as meritorious and counted among their principal virtues abstinence and continence, renunciation and self-control. Their conceptions of the world and of the destiny of man were similar. They both admitted the existence of a Heaven inhabited by beatified ones, situated in the upper regions, and of a Hell, peopled by demons, situated in the bowels of the Earth. They both placed a flood at the beginning of history; they both assigned as the source of their condition, a primitive revelation; they both, finally, believed in the immortality of the soul, in a last judgment, and in a resurrection of the dead, consequent upon a final conflagration of the universe” (The Mysteries of Mithras, pp. 190, 191).
  8. Reverend Charles Biggs stated: “The disciples of Mithra formed an organized church, with a developed hierarchy. They possessed the ideas of Mediation, Atonement, and a Savior, who is human and yet divine, and not only the idea, but a doctrine of the future life. They had a Eucharist, and a Baptism, and other curious analogies might be pointed out between their system and the church of Christ (The Christian Platonists, p. 240).
  9. In the catacombs at Rome was preserved a relic of the old Mithraic worship. It was a picture of the infant Mithra seated in the lap of his virgin mother, while on their knees before him were Persian Magi adoring him and offering gifts.
  10. He was buried in a tomb and after three days he rose again. His resurrection was celebrated every year.
  11. McClintock and Strong wrote: “In modern times Christian writers have been induced to look favorably upon the assertion that some of our ecclesiastical usages (e.g., the institution of the Christmas festival) originated in the cultus of Mithraism. Some writers who refuse to accept the Christian religion as of supernatural origin, have even gone so far as to institute a close comparison with the founder of Christianity; and Dupuis and others, going even beyond this, have not hesitated to pronounce the Gospel simply a branch of Mithraism” (Art. “Mithra”).
  12. Mithra had his principal festival on what was later to become Easter, at which time he was resurrected. His sacred day was Sunday, “the Lord’s Day.” The Mithra religion had a Eucharist or “Lord’s Supper.”
  13. The Christian Father Manes, founder of the heretical sect known as Manicheans, believed that Christ and Mithra were one. His teaching, according to Mosheim, was as follows: “Christ is that glorious intelligence which the Persians called Mithras … His residence is in the sun” (Ecclesiastical History, 3rd century, Part 2, ch. 5).

“I am a star which goes with thee and shines out of the depths.” – Mithraic saying

What’s Going On? What’s Happening Brother (extended video)

Marvin Gaye – What’s Going On?

The Black man in America today is the most victimized of everyone today.  Because we as a community do not stand up for each other nor pool our resources, we are just lambs fit for slaughter.  What does that mean?  That means we Black people don’t beat a path to a Black man’s door who opens up a store, and therefore Black owned businesses have a MUCH higher failure rate than all other races.  That means we have no political power and the police and government does with Black men as they please.  Let’s talk about likelihood – Black men are more likely to be thrown in jail for minor offenses and petty regulations made by a city or state; Black men are more likely to have to drop out of school due to lack of funding for education; Black men are more likely to not be hired for jobs they are qualified for; dark Black men suffer twice as much social injustice at the hands of not only whites, but other Blacks as well.  The father of social consciousness, Marvin Gaye, spoke about this 40 years ago.  While Martin Luther King preached about civil rights, he never touched on the whole picture.  We ascribe to Martin Luther King everything, when the reality is, he was as much of a pawn of the system as Obama is today.  Marvin Gaye on the other hand, was able to say exactly what he felt.  I present to you his song “What’s Going On” and “What’s Happening Brother”.

Marvin Gaye – “What’s Going On”

What’s Going On is the eleventh studio album by soul musician Marvin Gaye, released May 21, 1971, on the Motown-subsidiary label Tamla Records.  Recording sessions for the album took place in June 1970 and March–May 1971 at Hitsville U.S.A., Golden World and United Sound Studios in Detroit, Michigan and at The Sound Factory in West Hollywood, California.

The first Marvin Gaye album credited as produced solely by the artist himself, What’s Going On is a unified concept album consisting of nine songs, most of which lead into the next. It has also been categorized as a song cycle, since the album ends on a reprise to the album’s opening theme. The album is told from the point of view of a Vietnam War veteran returning to the country he had been fighting for, and seeing nothing but injustice, suffering and hatred.

What’s Going On was the first album on which Motown Records’ main studio band, the group of session musicians known as the Funk Brothers, received an official credit. Featuring introspective lyrics about drug abuse, poverty and the Vietnam War, the album was also the first to reflect the beginning of a new socially conscious trend in soul music. What’s Going On was both an immediate commercial and critical success and has endured as a classic of early-1970s soul. A deluxe edition set of the album was released on February 27, 2001, and featured a rare live concert shot at Washington, D.C.’s Kennedy Center where the singer was given the key to the city.

In worldwide critics’, artists’ and public surveys, it has been voted one of the landmark recordings in pop music history and is considered to be one of the greatest albums ever made.  In 2003, the album was ranked number 6 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

In late March 1970, Marvin Gaye had fallen into a deep depression following the death of his singing partner and fellow Motown artist Tammi Terrell, who had died of a brain tumor earlier that month. Gaye refused to record or perform, going as far as to attempt an athletic career in football with the Detroit Lions of the NFL. After an unsuccessful tryout for the team, Gaye came in contact with musician Al Cleveland and the Four Tops’ Renaldo “Obie” Benson, who were working on a politically conscious song called “What’s Going On”. Gaye assisted Cleveland and Benson in completing the composition, and planned to produce the song as a recording for the Motown act The Originals. However, Cleveland and Benson persuaded Gaye to record the song himself.

In June 1970, Gaye recorded “What’s Going On” and his own composition, “God Is Love”, which further expanded his inclusion of his spirituality in his music. Recording such material was a different direction for Gaye, who had previously performed and recorded radio-formatted and contemporary songs that were more representative of the Gordy-produced Motown Sound rather than politically or socially conscious music. When Gaye delivered the songs as the sides for his next 45-rpm single, his brother-in-law, Motown Records CEO Berry Gordy, Jr., objected to the material and refused to release the recordings. Though he had already permitted other Motown artists to record and release material that hinted at social and political themes – Edwin Starr’s “War”, The Temptations’ “Ball of Confusion”, both released earlier in 1970, and Stevie Wonder’s “Heaven Help Us All”, released later in the year – Gordy considered “What’s Going On” far too political to be promoted on radio and too unusual compared with the popular music sound of that time to be commercially successful.  Gaye, however, stood his ground and continued to lobby his case to label executives and to Gordy, as he did not want to be bound by Gordy’s or Motown’s version of music.

In an interview for Rolling Stone magazine, Marvin Gaye discussed what had shaped his view on more socially conscious themes in music and the conception of his eleventh full-length, non-duets studio album:

    In 1969 or 1970, I began to re-evaluate my whole concept of what I wanted my music to say… I was very much affected by letters my brother was sending me from Vietnam, as well as the social situation here at home. I realized that I had to put my own fantasies behind me if I wanted to write songs that would reach the souls of people. I wanted them to take a look at what was happening in the world. — Marvin Gaye

Gordy eventually gave in, certain that the record would flop. Upon its release in January 1971, “What’s Going On” became Motown’s fastest selling single at that point, going to the number-one spot on the R&B charts for five weeks and number-two for three weeks on the Pop listings, with “Joy to the World” by Three Dog Night retaining the top spot.

In 1985, writers on British music weekly the NME voted it best album of all time.  In 2004, the album’s title track was ranked number 4 on Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 greatest songs of all time.  A 1999 critics poll conducted by British newspaper Guardian/Observer named it the “Greatest Album of the 20th Century“. In 1997, What’s Going On was named the 17th greatest album of all time in a Music of the Millennium poll conducted in the United Kingdom by HMV Group, Channel 4, The Guardian and Classic FM. In 1998 Q magazine readers placed it at number 97, while in 2001 the TV network VH1 placed it at number 4. In 2003, it was one of 50 recordings chosen that year by the Library of Congress to be added to the National Recording Registry. What’s Going On was ranked #6 on Rolling Stone magazine’s 2003 list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, one of three Gaye albums to be included, preceded by 1973’s Let’s Get It On (#165) and 1978’s Here My Dear (#462).  The album is Gaye’s highest-ranking entry on the list, as well as several other publications’ lists.

Rock of Ages Pic Released by Tom Cruise

Rock of Ages Movie

Broadway hit Rock of Ages is set to leap from stage to the screen when the movie version is released in 2012. The casting has been slowly coming together, and the lead role has finally been cast: Diego Boneta has snagged the part of Drew Boley. The relative newcomer  will play the bus boy/aspiring rocker trying to get his big break in LA. Besides him, directed by Adam Shankman.

Tom Cruise as Stacee Jaxx
  • Along with Boneta, Russell Brand is also in talks for a role, which many are speculating is that of Lonny, who narrates the movie and runs The Bourbon Room, the fictional LA club where Drew works.
  • Tom Cruise is attached to the part of rock star Stacee Jaxx.
  • Julianne Hough has the female lead of Sherrie Christian, the small-town girl with big dreams.
  • Amy Adams recently signed on to play the journalist who is easily seduced by Jaxx, Cruise’s character. UPDATE: Adams is no longer on board, and Malin Akerman has taken the role.
  • Paul Giamatti will play the manager of Jaxx’s band.
  • Alec Baldwin is Dennis Dupree, owner of The Bourbon Room.
  • Mary J. Blige will appear as Justice Charlier, proprietor of exotic dance establishment The Venus Club.
  • Bryan Cranston is in talks to play the mayor of Los Angeles, and Catherine Zeta-Jones will play the his wife.
Today on Tom Cruise’s blog, the star release a pic of him in full make-up and hair as Stacee Jaxx.  I always have said Tom Cruise gets made up pretty damn well.  In Tropic Thunder, he was damn near unrecognizable.

Michael Jackson Video Footage Wanted by Dr. Conrad Murray

Michael Jackson’s Last Days Wanted by Dr. Conrad Murray

The defense for Dr. Conrad Murray in the involuntary manslaughter case against Dr. Conrad Murray could possibly be shown footage of MJ in his last days before his death in 2009.  The last videos of Michael Jackson were so top secret, they were transported in an unmarked truck, accompanied by armed guards in the dead of the night … this according to new docs filed in the Conrad Murray manslaughter case.

Michael Jackson

While prosecutors say that Michael died from an overdose of medication administered by Dr. Murrary, defense lawyers believe that the videos will show that Michael was already ill and physically weak.  Dr. Murray wants to see ALL of the rehearsal videos shot for the doomed “This is It” tour.  Murray’s lawyers believe it could show Michael was in such a frail condition … there were many reasons for his death other than Propofol.

Murray’s lawyers subpoenaed the tapes, but now Sony Pictures — which has possession of the videos — is objecting for several reasons.  Sony claims there are more than 20 boxes of videos and it would cost $200,000 to log and reproduce all of them.  Sony Pictures owns the rights to the videos, which contains over 100 hours of unused video during Michael’s filming of of This Is It documentary and are contractually obligated to not allow any footage to be released that will be show MJ in a “negative light.”  But in the docs, Sony describes how top secret the videos were to the studio.  Sony lawyers say, “When they were transported to the Sony lot in Culver City, the transport in an unmarked truck was accompanied by armed guards in the dead of the night.”

When the tapes were in an editing bay, security guards were posted outside the door and no Internet access was allowed in the room.  And a Sony honcho also submitted a declaration which says the videos “have a high monetary value inherent in their potential for future uses.  Those uses include one or more ‘anniversary editions.'”

Unfortunately for Sony and for the Jackson estate, a judge can still force Sony to release the videos, which would help Dr. Murray’s defense.

Michael Buble Named in Top 5 Biggest Selling Band by Forbes

Michael Buble in Top 5 Biggest Selling Bands

According to Forbes highest-paid band list, Michael Buble comes in the 5th spot in the top 5 list.  Every year, the mag releases a list of the 25 biggest-earning musicians. Acts that have toured consistently throughout the year tend to make the top spots on the list. The crooner was slightly edged out by the hyper-marketed Lady Gaga.  He came in 5th with $70 Million, while she squeaked by with $90 Million.

Michael Buble Fighting to the Top

Coming in second was Bon Jovi, who made $125 million and Elton John came in third with $100 million after playing a total of 102 shows over the last year.  The coveted number 1 spot was swept again, for the second time in a row, by the band U2 with $195 million after bringing their 360 tour to a close, with the tour itself banking over $700 million.

This year Michael Buble won the Grammy for:

Best Traditional Pop Vocal
Album Crazy Love
Year: 2011

He is a real fighter.  However, to really win the number one spot he just has to tour much much more.  U2 never too a break.  Literally they played a gig almost every day of the year.  We don’t know about their families, and that’s probably better left unsaid, but really, who stays away from home for all but 5 days in a year?

But, obviously, you gotta do what you gotta do.
