i've noticed in recent times kids who grew up on nelly and britney spears have now moved, en masse, to the likes of deadmau5 and swedish house mafia...i will explain how they actually don't like any of these artists nor their music:
1. there are some people who have always listened to techno and trance and genuinely like it...these people are typically from germany, sweden, iceland, etc (aka northern drug-saturated climates) and are usually transsexual and haven't missed making an appearance at the love parade since '89...my beef is not with them, they were always a small subculture which supported this genre of music...but if you grew up on hip hop or rock your musical taste cannot switch to enjoying sonar bleeps with headache-inducing drum patterns at the drop of a hat
2. there is no way vocal-less techo music can appeal to the masses...there are some techno-ish songs which even i find catchy and have listened to, for example 'memories' with kid cudi and david guetta, 'blue', and several others by daft punk...HOWEVER all these songs have vocals and are at least somewhat made in the typical song format...people like deadmau5 make purely electronic garbage without any human vocals, this sort of monotone bullshit is sooooo easy to make 95% of the idiots listening to it could make the next 'hit' if they only knew how to use fruity loops
3. people with intelligence, music taste, and money don't listen to this garbage...this is why serious music critics don't bother to review this bullshit, people over 30 tend to stop listening to it, and while josh groban sells 6 million units in 3 months, these 'DJs' struggle to sell their singles for $1.99 on beatport
5. the real reason this music is "popular" is because the majority of listeners who bump techno and trance are insecure individuals growing up in the social media age where they are told (and in turn, they re-tell) what is good via facebook feed and tweets...it's also associated with the baller south beach club culture and lifestyle which 95% of the listeners (might want to, but) simply aren't living
7. if you truly enjoy listening to this type of music, while not on drugs or in a club, i feel sorry for you but at least i respect you, and i hope they blast deadmau5 at your funeral and technoviking makes an appearance...if you listen to this music because you think its cool YOU ARE GAY!

As we can see, most of the NBA's really bad teams are indeed young. That doesn't make the teams suck any less. But it's an excuse of sorts: young players improve with experience and growth, and young teams can usually be expected to do the same. Sacramento is truly awful. But at least two of their best players (Tyreke Evans and DeMarcus Cousins) are 21 years old or younger. (Extra bonus: only one of them acts even younger.) FULL STORY

Council of Europe’s Dick Marty says that he does not fear for his life after publishing a report in which he details Kosovo Albanian organ trafficking led by the newly elected Albanian separatist Hashim Thaci.
Marty told media in Russia that he does not fear for his life.
Answering to a reporter as to whether he fears assault by Kosovo Albanians after he designated their chief leader, Hashim Thaci, a mafia boss involved in organ trade and other organized crime, Marty answered that he does not.
Marty was in Russia to talk about relations between Russia and Georgia.
Prior to visiting Russia, Marty told the Swiss weekly, Sonntag, that Kosovo cannot build its future without confronting its past, and that his report is not against Kosovo, but for it, especially for those of its people who want to live in a well organized society.
US State Department said that extraction of organs out of Serbs is unimportant and Washington will continue to cooperate with Thaci irrespective of his involvement in that crime.
EU mission to Kosovo has asked Marty to provide evidence to them.
Former war crimes prosecutor, Carla del Ponte, complained that the international authorities in Kosovo were deliberately stalling her requests for information on the Albanian organized crime activities.

2004: "The Motorcycle Diaries." The film is based on a true story, using two books as its sources: Ernesto "Che" Guevara's diaries and "Back on the Road," the memoir written by his friend and traveling companion Alberto Granado; it was nominated for an Oscar for adapted screenplay. The film takes place in the summer of 1952, when Guevara was close to finishing his medical degree, as the two friends travel across South America via motorcycle and motorized bike. Of course, when the trip was over, Guevara would be setting off in another direction -- that of leftist revolutionary. FULL LIST
Let's review what happened in Kosovo
1. The West bombs and invades Serbia
2. They rip away Kosovo and give it to Albanians
3. They enable Albanian criminals to murder Serbs and sell their organs
4. When they're asked about it they laugh
5. When one of their own people brings the organ harvesting to light they dismiss his report and claim they had no idea it took place
Adding to this, Nash is by far the best shooter in NBA history. It’s barely even debatable. There is something called the 50-40-90 club, which is 50 percent field goal percentage, 40 percent three point percentage and 90 percent free throw percentage.
This has only been done nine times in history.
Four of them were by Nash, two by Bird and one each by Nowitzki, Mark Price and Reggie Miller (Isn’t it weird that they are all white? Yes, Reggie Miller is white, I don’t care what the color of his skin is). Nash was also the only one to attempt over 300 three pointers a season and reach this statistical plateau. He has the four best three point percentages out of the group and the top two free throw percentages. FULL ARTICLE

Research published in Current Biology showed the woman felt no fear in a variety of scary situations.
These included exposure to snakes and spiders, horror films and a "haunted house".
The woman feels other emotions but said as an adult, she had never felt afraid.
She is the first known case of someone who is unable to process fear.
Researchers at the University of Iowa said her inability to feel frightened was because she is missing a structure in her brain called the amygdala.
The structure has long been associated with emotional learning - experiments in animals have shown that removing it makes them fearless.
However, it has never been observed in a human before. FULL STORY

The BBC news team is just about as awful as FOX now. Way to put that Ron Burgandy wannabe in his place, Jody.
BBC interview wheelchair user and cerebal palsy sufferer Jody McIntryre after he was dragged from his wheelchair by police on two seperate occasions at the anti-tuition fees protest on the 9th December 2010 in London. The presenter is Ben Brown.
Kosovo's prime minister is the head of a "mafia-like" Albanian group responsible for smuggling weapons, drugs and human organs through eastern Europe, according to a Council of Europe inquiry report on organised crime.
Hashim Thaçi is identified as "the boss" of a network that began operating criminal rackets in the run-up to the 1999 Kosovo war, and has held powerful sway over the country's government since.
The report of the two-year inquiry, which cites FBI and other intelligence sources, has been obtained by the Guardian. It names Thaçi as having over the last decade exerted "violent control" over the heroin trade.
Figures from Thaçi's inner circle are accused of secretly taking captives across the border into Albania after the war, where a few Serbs are said to have been murdered for their kidneys, which were sold on the black market. FULL STORY

1. Brazil - you wouldn't think so by Adriana's funny looking nose in the picture above but she still looks like a hot chipmunk, 2 attractive cultures merging = Brazil (the exact opposite happened in Mexico)
2. Venezuela - should be #1 but I'm too lazy to change it
3. Afghanistan - best kept secret in the world, the Taliban make them wear Burkas because they don't like to share
4. Iran - nose job capital of the world...works
5. Armenia - a country full of Kardashians
6. Czech Republic - or Slovakia, I had to include a Slavic representative
7. India - some actress I saw in a random movie I watched a few years back convinced me to include Hindia
8. French Polynesia - not to be confused with actual French women, I'm talking about Pacific Islanders here (but not the fat ones)
9. Russia - overrated, barely made the list
10. Iceland - blue eyes + black hair = exotic
1. England - unspeakably hideous, if a English woman is attractive, she must be mixed
2. Turkey - the main reason they want to join Europe is to obtain attractive genes, criminally ugly
3. Mexico - explorers who were banished from Spain for being too ugly mixed with the ugliest Indian tribe and bam! Mexico!
4. Italy - they dress so well to distract you from their ugliness
5. China - Zhang Ziyi is a notable exception (i love her)
6. Albania - not necessarily ugly, just unappealing to me personally
7. Germany - scary and unpleasant, just like their language
8. Saudi Arabia - they should keep their Burkas on
9. Nepal - they should be exiled to the top of Mount Everest
10. South Africa - Zulus, Dutch, British = ugly x 3!
*list is based strictly on physical appearance (which I don't find that important), if it was a list of overall characteristics Serbia would be #1 by far
**list is based on women, to me Drake looks like he has a chromosome missing and Viktor Troicki looks like a Beluga yet apparently women find them attractive, so I didn't even go there however logic says since they all have the same genes this list could paint a fairly accurate overall picture of the hottest and ugliest countries

The results are striking. An African-American man would have to earn $154,000 more than a white man in order for a white woman to prefer him. A Hispanic man would need to earn $77,000 more than a white man, and Asian man would need, remarkably, an additional $247,000 in additional annual income. FULL ARTICLE

From now until December 7, change your profile picture to a cartoon character from your childhood. The objective of this is not to see any human faces on Facebook but an invasion of memories for the fight against Violence to Children. Remember we were kids too*
i saw someone post this today and think its funny considering everyone in Serbia already did this like 3 weeks ago, check the article about it here
American exceptionalism refers to the opinion that the United States is qualitatively different from other nations. Its exceptionalism stems from its emergence from a revolution, becoming "the first new nation", and developing a unique American ideology, based on liberty, egalitarianism, individualism, populism and laissez-faire". This observation can be traced to Alexis de Tocqueville, the first writer to describe the United States as "exceptional". Although the term does not imply superiority, some writers have used it in that sense. To them, the United States is a "shining city on a hill", and exempt from historical forces that have affected other countries.

nothing too groundbreaking yet but here are 2 leaks i found interesting:
"[Elysee Diplomatic Advisor Jean-David] Levitte also criticized Serbian FM Jeremic, saying that he is doing nothing to encourage Serb return or participation in Kosovo’s government. Levitte noted that Jeremic “makes big promises” every time he comes to France, but doesn’t follow through. Levitte no longer meets with him and does not consider him to be the “modern face of Belgrade” that he purports to be."
"Guido Westerwelle also spoke against any type of automatic decision in favor of membership for Turkey. There was also general agreement that the EU is not ready for new members at this time beyond Croatia"
there you have it, even tadic's government isn't quisling enough for america and on top of that we have no chance of getting in the EU...i hope tadic had fun at the gay parade

Note I: A psychologist looked over Vladimir's writing and photographs and estimated he has a IQ of "below 20" indicating "profound mental retardation." However, he was "legally sane" and had the intent to insult others with his posts therefore I believe my investigation is ethical.
Note II: All words deemed too "complicated" for Vladimir are linked to their dictionary definitions.
The internet has become a wonderful tool for spreading music, ideas and art to the masses with relative ease. However, with this great tool came unfiltered commentary by unqualified individuals who are free to post their baseless opinions and mistruths in anonymity without fear of consequence. Part of being a public figure is understanding that criticism is a part of the job and my team and I have a general policy of not acknowledging nor paying attention to haters. However, to help better market and develop my new CD I decided to gather information on and better understand a typical hater. In recent times I have come across a particularly obsessive hater by the name of Vladimir Lukic. The "aspiring rapper" has flooded the comment box of hundreds 0f sites that ran stories on me. He is easily identified by his poor grammar and ridiculous claims that I'm a "ustasa" and "albanac." What distinguished him from other haters was his compulsiveness and vigor which led him to be banned (under numerous usernames) from all my sites. His stalkerish tendencies escalated to messaging my friends and violating their vision and hearing by sending them links to his likeness and "music".
Due to these reasons I decided he would be the perfect specimen for my investigation on what makes a hater, a hater.
Who is Vladimir Lakic?
After some investigative work and background information I uncovered the rather shocking truth that the ultra-clerical Vladimir was actually raised by a same-sex couple. His father Branko married Dejan Lukic in a same-sex wedding ceremony in Connecticut in 2008. They are registered as being in a "same-sex civil union" in the state of Nevada. They are registered as living together at 4467 Bramblewood St Las Vegas, NV 89147.
In his autobiography Vladimir writes (in a weird mixture of second and first person) he was born in the (Muslim stronghold of) Zenica, Bosnia in 1989. This surprised me because due to his grammar and pictures I approximated him to be about 10 years ago. (Side Note: Research should be conducted into the possibly that being raised by same-sex parents stunts growth and handicaps maturity). It's also interesting to note on his MySpace page his hometown is listed as Krusevac, Serbia, which seems to indicate a inferiority complex and self-hating personality.
He continues; "I wasnt lookin for toys to play with i was lookin for a peace a bread cuz i was hungry." Due to readily available gay sex toys his father Branko had left lying around house, it is quite possible that Vladimir has subconsciously blocked out parts of his memory pertaining to his experiences with these toys.
He is "still waitin for hes big break i really belive i can be next big thing and get dat opprtunity" and is "good friend of ludacris signed to same label DTP willy northpole." These statements indicate in addition to being illiterate he is also delusional and a pathological liar. In the 5 years I have been in the music industry I have never come across anyone more horrendously atrocious and deprived of even the slightest drop of talent. His material should used to torture inmates in Guantanamo Bay or as an euthanasia agent to make people want to commit suicide and escape his punishingly retarded Boratesque voice.
However, because my opinion was biased due to him having insulted me, I sent his music to individuals who would be impartial and are players in the music industry. Among the recipients of Vladimir's audio venom were Ant Rich (Jive Records), Jay Gatzby (Bad Boy Records) and Laurie Dobbins (Violator Management). I knew I was sending absolute and indisputable trash which would risk my relationship with them but I was set on helping this unfortunate young man realize the product he was spewing was harmful to people's hearing. The responses I got ranged from "is this a joke?" to "never email me again" but all confirmed the reality that Vladimir Lakic is out of his villager mind in thinking his CDs will serve as anything other than coasters for cheap beer.
Prior to this investigation I tried to reason with Vladimir and offered to prove to him and provide evidence that I'm neither a Ustasa nor an Albanian. However the condition for me spending all this time and effort on a random hater was the understanding that should his accusations be disproved, he would perform fellatio on a local male prostitute. Vladimir refused and this showed to me he wasn't ready to "put his money where his month is" and didn't believe his own lies. The real reason for his quarrel with me stemmed from me ignoring his 100+ tweets and emails for a collaboration.
Vladimir - I'm not doing this because you're a retarded, ugly, delusional, sheep-fucking seljacina faggot , you can't help any of those things. I'm doing this because your jealousy has fueled you to spend days insulting and spreading lies about a complete stranger for absolutely no reason. It's ironic that a fat, inbred fuck from Bosnia would accuse me, who had 4 relatives killed at Jasenovac and whose grandmother is from Podujevo, of being a "ustasa" or "siptar." I studied ethnography and I'll pay for a genetic DNA test to prove that you're either a Vlach or Thracian whose faggot ancestors were raped by the Turks until that square, Quasimodo-looking face became the dominant physical trait in your queer family. I'm embarrassed that you tell people you're Serbian. You wanted my attention and now you have it: Fuck you, fuck everyone in your genealogical tree from your 2 faggot fathers (hahaha) to your hideous, artificially-inseminated whore of a mother, and all the way back to you, you fuckin jester. There's a bridge over Las Vegas Bay 15 miles from your townhouse, when you finally realize it's time to jump off let me know and I'll pay for a cab to come pick you up and take you there.
Ladies and gentlemen, there you have the typical internet hater of the 21st century: Vladimir Lakic

Us: Kanye West is similar to you in that he’s the producer everybody wants to work with in the last decade….
Quincy Jones: How man? No way. Did he write for a symphony orchestra? Does he write for a jazz orchestra? Come on, man. He’s just a rapper. There’s no comparison. I’m not putting him down or making a judgment or anything, but we come from two different sides of the planet. I spent 28 years learning my first skill. I don’t rap. It’s not the same thing. A producer has to have some sort of skills that enable him to be a producer. It’s totally different to know what to do with 16 woodwinds you know from piccolos down to bass clarinet. It’s a whole different mindset. No comparison. None.

"It is raising the bar of creativity in terms of marketing your music. But as far as artistic creativity, I’m not too sure, one can argue that all of this extra time spent online is taking away from rehearsal & recording time, when artists can feed their artistic creativity."
- Dave Cool
