Check this out… recorded in the 1930’s. Like the OP was saying, it makes gangsta rappas look like schoolboys.

Ironic Irony on CNN

Posted in Funny, Random on August 3, 2010 by dublab

I recently watched this news clip on the CNN website featuring dueling commentary from these two ladies (who i will refrain from describing) on Hugh Hefner’s statement that women are sex objects.

I don’t think either of them realizes they are proving his point much more thoroughly than any two-minute debate they could have…

Comedy Tuesday: Good News Day for Substance Abusers

Posted in Funny on January 27, 2009 by dublab

Some bits of news that might make you chuckle:

In other news, I continue to receive mailings from Kroger, a major factor in my decision to boycott their stores.   I have also (unsuccessfully) asked the offices of State Farm agents Wayne Shutt and Cleo Meyer to discontinue mailings to my address.

Please bear with me as life becomes interesting enough to blog again.

The people at College Humor saw the same Matt Damon interview that I posted about recently and made a trailer for what the really bad Disney movie would look like.  Check it out.

Talk Like A Pirate Day: Arrrgh Matey!

Sir Francis Drake: slave trader and pirate backed by the English crown.

Shiver me timbers ya scallawags, it’s Talk Like A Pirate Day, perhaps one of my favorite un-holidays ever!

Seriously, every year I anxiously wait for the opportunity to spend a nice September day talking like an idiot and cracking pirate jokes constantly.  Some popular ones:

  • What’s a pirate’s favorite food? Arrrrrtichokes.
  • What has 12 arms, 12 legs and 12 eyes? A dozen pirates.
  • What’s a pirate’s favorite basketball move? The hook shot.
  • How could the pirate acquire the ship so cheaply? Because it was on sail.
  • Did you hear about that new pirate movie? It’s rated Arrrrrgh.

So please, support your local pirate today!  Personally, the only ones I can think of are Swedish…

… or they’re in movies.

Disclaimer: I am in no way promoting or attempting to glorify ACTUAL piracy, just having fun with a weird holiday.

DAAAAMN! New Calle 13 Single Drops… Right On Top of Ivy Queen

Posted in Artists I Like, Funny, Music, On My Radar, Puerto Rico on September 18, 2008 by dublab

Today’s Nuevo Dia writes about the new Calle 13 single, which went into heavy circulation on Puerto Rican radio stations today.

According to Rene Perez, the song is an attack on reggaeton artists who claim to be “street” but aren’t.  More directly, the track ends with a poke at Ivy Queen (“oye Ivy, me das pena, aqui te traigo una navaja pa que te cortes las venas”), who cried like a little girl when Calle 13 beat her at the Latin Grammy awards.  Cause according to Ivy, “it’s not fair” that Calle 13 won the awards that she was up for since Calle 13 is an “alternative music” act.

I have to say that the lyrics on this track are absolutely friggin hilarious – I can’t think of the last time I heard such a funny and imaginatively worded attack on bling-blingy, conscious-less, major-label commercial trash.  Rene is clearly in top form and I am now officially counting the days until the new album drops.
