I see my self as a person who believes in capitalism. I think its one of the greatest phenomenons the world has ever seen, ever.

The other day, while scanning twitter, I saw this link somebody tweeted out. I think it was Liz ( @calinative ). It said “Media Consolidation: The Illusion of Choice (Infographic)”, this really sparked my interest. Side Note: after reading this whole infographic, i was stuck on this site for two hours lol.

This infographic shows how 90% of the media consumed comes from 6 different companies. So what that means is there is 6 countries controling what everybody watches or listens to. Movies, TV, Radio, Music.

Media Consolidation Infographic

Like I said, Im a capitalist, so I dont really see a problem with 6 companies controlling all of media from a business stand point. Good for them! Honestly, I’d like to be number 7 some day. I think its great.
However, there is the fact that these media outlets control news stations; which would be OK, if these news stations didnt have such a clear agenda. Propaganda is one thing and a whole different subject. Because I just want to talk about The News. I watch a lot of news, the words and phrasing that comes from each of these companies goes far far beyond proaganda. Especially when a major media company controls multiple sources of information.
For instance; if one of these companies controls a major news network that has a clear agenda, lets use both fox and msnbc as an example. These two stations are owned by News Corp and GE respectively. Its common knowledge that both of these networks have a clear conservative and liberal agendas. GE and News Crop also own/control several other local tv stations as well as news papers and other accessible information sources.

This internet meme is a perfect example:

 

So when I read through this infographic, it shows and tells me this:

When an event happens that makes the news. An anchor men/women, anyalist, specialist, experts or which ever person said news station would like to discuss a news event, view point or talking point that the Major Media Outlet wants out there, gets on camera and delivers which ever talking point using a few keywords. They can make a statement, claim or which ever saying anything thats based on just the smallest bit of truth and at the same time skew those words to reflect their agenda.

Next, since there are multiple shows on any news network, this station will then have on more individuals on other shows who state said talking point line for line or either expands/rephrases the same talking point. This starts to validate this talking point as actual news or information or a talking point or something that will provide content for you to take in, watch and talk about; relevant or not (See: Birthers).
Not only will that happen, but the local tv, news papers, etc will also mention these same talking points and information maintaining the same keywords or phrasing. No matter if this talking point is completely true or completely false or some where in between, doesnt matter, because there is an agenda at the end of the day. So now, you the consumer of this information and patron of which ever station, takes this information as absolute truth or the closest you can come to it.
You talk to your friends and family who may or may not have seen/heard similar information by a company owned by the big 6; maybe the same company you support. This other person may not be watching the same station as you may watch, yet your info and the skew that was received on it is the same coming from different sources and now this talking point is gaining some validity.

Now you have a solid piece of manufactured information, phrased in the mold of which ever agenda it came from.  The information is skewed and based on fact, so its hard to dispute which parts of this information is completely accurate if you dont choose to do any research your self. Which most people dont do; thats what they watch the news for. People rely on the news for the truth on whats happening in the world and what matters to them, period. People trust news outlet information as accurate, no matter where they choose to get it from. Which would be cool if all the information was 100% accurate and not phrased as vaguely and broadly stroked as it is.

But since it is, just at even a glance, this information will sway you to one side of the issue or the other, depending on which news outlet you got it from. Which is where this is a bad thing, because information is supposed to inform, not sway. Your opinion should be based off 100% accurate information from said news outlet and you, the consumer, can make your own choices from there. But there is a lot of money involved, so that changes things. A lot.

So now the way people view things, vote, purchase goods and their every day lives are saturated with one of these companies over all agenda that serves the greater good of said company, rather than the over all good of the public.

This isy just one point I see. I see an array of possibilities, situations and problems when 6 companies controlling 90% of media consumed; it can lead to all sorts of things, both good and bad.

If I could be #7 though, that would be awesome. I cant say I would or wouldnt take up any of the practices I see the big 6 using to be completely honest. I can say that I draw the line at misinforming the masses. However, I can also see it might necessary at some point.. you know, so I can make more money. Fuck what youre going through lol.


This here rapper goes by the name Krispy Kreme (no A). If you talk shit to this man, he will throw AIDS at your car. Plain and simple.

This is way too funny. This whole song is quotable. I had to listen to this 4 times to figure out which line I wanted to use for the title of this post. This dude has to be kin to Butters from south park. His hick cousin from west virgina or something. This man has a trailer park accent, yet he says all his words completely, just like Butters.

Him throwin up the W almost took me out. Theres SO MUCH SHIT I could say about this video! Krispy in the tree. Krispy’s fighter skills. Kripsy on the swing. Krispys bowl cut. Krispys wranglers. Krispy and Money Maker Mikes… um, closeness??? Why is he resting his arm on Money Maker Mike like that? That shit made me wild uncomfortable or something. Theres a good chance Krispy and Money Maker are fucking, is what I’m getting at, I guess. Krispys cart wheel. Krispys small ass trophies; from 99. Krispys wrinkled ass shirt.. I could go on an on.

I hope you got the same laugh out of this that I did.

My cousin posted this to facebook with the words “Club Banger” .. this little nigga cracks me up.

If youre an instant Krispy Kreme fan, and I dont see how you wouldnt be, check out his other video called “The Baddest” where him and Money Maker Mike pull out the heat!


Dominos latest marketing efforts revolves around an iPad app/game called “Pizza Hero“, heres the commercial.

So… You mean to tell me, that IF you become good enough at this game. Dominos will INVITE you to become a real pizza maker… sorry, “Pizza Chef”. For minimum wage. At one of their hole in the wall, hot ass establishments. They are giving away their pizzas at a discount for this promotion, so there is no way they are gonna pay you a worth while salary to make their pizza. If you are hired on as a pizza chef, then there is a good chance that it would take you about 4 months to even save up for an ipad. You could barely afford the cheapest data plan for your ipad.

Why would you even play this game more than twice?? This whole marketing effort is totally lost on me. AND super hilarious.

What the hell were these people thinking? Ipad owners are potential pizza chefs in the waiting? Im really wondering if anybody has actually done great in this game and then got an offer from dominos and actually took it? I wonder how much they will pay you for your victory and pizza making in  on of their stores. I really need to know. Maybe they were hoping out of work kids and college students will play this game and if they win, they will walk right into a job at least half way knowing what they are doing lol. I dont know. This shit is hilarious… and dumb.

To top this whole matter off. The owner of dominos is taking part in this whole effort! He thought this was a good idea too? lol “Maybe people will want to work in our stores if they get good at the game, thats a GREAT idea!”.

I would have loved to have been apart of these meetings. Im sure there was AT LEAST one person there who thought this was a dumb ass idea but also thought it was fucking hilarious. I want to be friends with that person and  have had shared those SMH eye contact moments while everybody was shooting out ideas to make this idea work. Im sure it was fucking hilarious on a very sad level lmao.

Look at the kitchen they are in. Have you ever been in a dominos that was any where NEAR that big?! LOL NO! You have not! There are 2 walk ways, something like 3 ovens, hella food and pizza making tables, and a register space. Theres never even that many people in a dominos kitchen! Everything would catch fire in the first 8 minutes!

This is fucking hilarious! I know commercials are only truthyness of the truth. But these people REALLY took it too far with the app and silly ass offer to go with it. Thats crossing the damn line lol.

How do the current Dominos employees feel about this new pizza making app? Are the delivery boys playing this shit on their breaks? Hoping to get in the kitchen to that nice comfy position in that hot ass kitchen with all those ovens lol.
How do the current pizza chefs feel about this app? Do they use it for practice? Or are the long time Dominos pizza chefs appauled that their jobs, the way they feed their families, has been made into a game. And if you win said game, you can come possibly take their job! Which is fucked up! … these people surely cant afford ipads to even practice on! Foul!

I guess this does save money on training time though. If they hire on one of these proud pizza heros, im sure they will be able to walk straight in (after they get their food handlers licence) and have their superior point; there go the meat, veggies and cheese. You know how this is done. Get to work… hero.

lmao… THIS IS DUMB!!! AS FUCK!! A MINIMUM WAGE JOB, FOR MAKING PIZZA THATS NOT WORTH HALF OF ITS PRICE, IS NOT A REWARD FOR A WINNING A SIMPLE VIDEO GAME!!!! Its the real life reward of playing video games all day. lol.

What I’d really like to see is, some pissed off mom hand her ipad to her lazy teenage son with the game launched talking about: Here, play this and go get your ass a job! lmaoooo


I love all these uber ignorant Barack Obama parody videos. I dont care whos offended. This shit is AWESOME. I cant help it.

The super funny part to me is, the President does get his thug on. For instance: Yesterday, was the Death Anniversary of Bin Laden, out of no where, Obama shows up in Afghanistan! Addressed the U.S. people FROM Afghanistan. He couldve done that from the White House. But he didnt. He went over there to say what he had to say. It wasnt a photo op with troops. He jumped on TV saying that he was still going after anybody who wasnt on the same page as america for the most part. But he said it IN AL QUEDAS HOOD! lmao. Emerged from between some Hummers like WE OUT HERE!! Its extra real!
A year ago on that day, he didnt give a fuck about Pakistan and their sovereignty or anything else. He had troops over there regardless of what. Fuck you, Pakies… be mad. I said I would. I did.
Thats gangster shit all day long.

How many of you reading this would have flew over to Afghanistan to remind Al Queda and the Taliban that its still real? Thats their hood! Thats where they kick it, post, enforce their ways and laws on people. The same place they let off suicide bombs and rockets. Would you take your ass over there and tell those SAME people that its still real? Youre still on their head and fully intend on killing all of them (in so many words). Of course you wouldnt lol.

Because youre not a gotdamn Gangster like the President and the United States, clearly is. Thats what pure disrespect is all about. Thats the brand of disrespect I LOVE. Its great.

This is just like 2 rival gangs getting into a bloody war. Then the leader of gang A is killed. Then on a year to the day; the opposing gang B leader, comes to their hood and tells everybody in gang A that its still on and we aint gonna stop untill all of you either give up or are dead. And crip walking off stage. That just happen in real life! God Bless America and its gangster ways. Cant help but respect it.


In this commercial, Direct TV would have you believe that being up for anything is a bad idea. Well I have news for you direct tv, Im usually up for anything. Further more and more importantly, I would LOVE to reenact scenes from Platoon with the Warlock himself!!! What the fuck is wrong with you Direct TV?!?! This sounds like an awesome idea!!! How does this not sound like a good ass time to me!! What am I missing here?! Is Charlie Sheen using live ammo or something? What? This sounds super fun to me. So fuck Direct TV. Im cool. Id rather keep Cable, record which ever show while Im out jumping over Charlie Sheens furniture with a M-16 or some wild shit like that LOL!

Direct TV’s selling point was something about record multiple shows. My cable DVR records two shows at once. Honestly, this is RARELY an inconvenience lol. Realistically, being able to record a bunch of shows at the same time is a selling point for you, youre probably fat. OR hella lazy, or no gotdamn fun lol. Thats a lot of gotdamn TV watching for that to be a solid selling point for you. If youre watching that much TV, you need an outdoors hobby. LOL get out and play or something. Gotdamn


This right here is an LA/Long Beach Classic! If youre not local, youve probably never heard this song before. This is my shit. Back in the day, everybody thought @SnoopDogg was daying “Dogg Pound Gangsta Crips” on the hook. This song used to come on the radio mind you. So every Crip used to get hype when this shit came on. Its the guts to witness. What Snoop is really saying is “Rips” or “Clique” … some shit like that. Rips might as well be Crips. No matter what he said, Im POSITIVE he wanted to make it sound like Crips. Ol gang bangin ass niggas. lol That shit will never die.


Fuck You Space Bags! Word to 21 Jump Street, which i saw this weekend. It was funny as fuck! I promise.

Anyway, during the 4th Quarter of the Lakers Vs Utah game (Lakers Lost… bullshit) I decided to share my frustration about the punk ass space bags that dispensaries put their weed in. I hate them shits.

Mean while, this is darkest gotdamn video lol. shit. I need some better lighting in my office lol.

I’m not all that great at dominos. But I’m getting better. Watch out niggas! I’m a very bad winner. Very very very bad winner lol.


Who ever did this is great…. and very fucking ignorant lol. I feel like Will Smith did this himself lol. Like he spent time groovin on all those episodes of Fresh Prince of Bel Air (one of my favorite all time shows) just to lead up to the making of this video lol.

Speaking of silly dances done to Niggas in Paris tho, the jig @KanyeWest was doing in that damn video was HILARIOUS! @Steenfox knows what I’m talkin about lol. It deserves its own post. But Ill go over that some other time lol.

Shout out to who ever put this link on twitter earlier.
