Hipsters are going to show up in droves to see this movie, because their messiah, Spike Jonze, directed it while listening to Arcade Fire for three straight years. Portland, Oregon, which is already inundated with hipster culture, is going to have the hidden hipsters coming out of the woodwork to see this movie. They’ll have to cash in their PBR tall boy cans and ride their goofy bikes to the movie, so watch where you drive. If a hipster dies on his hipster bike, does he make a sound….and is that sound going to be rated high on Pitchfork Media?
Here is proof that hipsters love WTWTA, and acronyms:
What the hell happened to Jay-Z? He is disgracing the first The Blueprint cd hard. It’s like when The Blueprint 2 came out and people were like, “Oh…so that’s what we’re going to expect now. Time to lower the expectations”.
I think Kanye and Timbaland gave Hova some advice to use more futuristic beats, and it just doesn’t work. Drake is featured on “Off That”, and although it is kinda catchy, the lyrics are pointless. The whole reason why The Blueprint worked so well was because of the introspective lyrics and soulful beats. The attempt at that is “A Star Is Born”, and the lyrics are good, but the beat detracts from the message of the song. This is just a lazy album.
Here’s what to expect. “Run This Town” is one of the better tracks on the album. Bad sign. Young Jeezy injects some much needed life in “Real As It Gets”, but Jay-Z’s verses are meh. “Venus Vs. Mars”, “Thank You” and “Hate” are very tedious and sound like they should have been offered as bonus tracks or left off all together.
I’m getting so tired of the current trend in rap. Ever since Lil’ Wayne got noticed by sorority girls and blew up rap has been in a funk. Hova’s attempt at getting it off of Autotune is pointless, because the direction he’s trying to take it in is a horrible lateral move that serves nobody.
Overall, this cd is a solid meh outta 10. Nothing really hits, and gives me the same feeling the first time I heard Curtis. Jay-Z has nothing left to say, so he really should just stop. I used to be a fan, but this cd is so mediocre it’s sad.

Brock Lesnar will be going up in a rematch with Frank Mir on Saturday, July 11th, for the title fight of UFC 100. This is the most anticipated fight of the year, and I can’t wait to see who wins. I’ve been following Brock’s career since he joined the WWF, even though I don’t even like wrestling. The guy has always intrigued me, because of his size and overall physical stature. Once he joined the MMA, I got even more interested in it.
Frank Mir is a great opponent for Brock, because he is a more technical fighter who specializes in submission moves. He is very well versed in different take downs, and has the intellectual advantage in this match. He also beat Brock last year in Brock’s first UFC fight. Brock was murdering him before he got caught in a knee bar and had to tap out.
I want and I think Lesnar will win. He has the strength advantage and is a better fighter than when they fought last. Don’t count Mir out though, because this guy is a crafty fighter. No matter who wins, the fight’ll be entertaining.
