The Slut Tournament

Here’s the jist; the next time you and a few of your friends are bored, take out a piece of paper and pen, and make a list of friends (men and women), famous people, and fictitious characters. Then, hold a single-elimination bracket style tournament as to who would be the sluttiest, or bitchiest, or the biggest asshole, etc.

I’ll be holding a Slut Tournament, post your entries in the comments section.

Entry #1 - Jessica Simpson

Episode III

I don’t need to say that I enjoyed the movie, because everyone that matters is going to see it anyway. I don’t need to say how great the special effects, plot, and story telling were either. Here’s what needs to be said, and it’s not a rehash of what twenty million other Star Wars blogger’s have said.

The Star Wars universe has nowhere else to go. Everything has been explained, and once all the Star Wars fans realize that, they will be very disappointed. The mythology surrounding the Star Wars empire is all tapped out, unless George Lucas decides to make another prequel trilogy, or perhaps a 7 8 9 trilogy. Either is very unlikely, since GL is rich off his fat ass and he and his family of fat ass adopted daughters could easily live off just the royalties for the rest of their lives. He won’t sell the rights to anyone to make the movies for him, because as I just stated, he has enough money to choke Donald Trump.

Truthfully, I would be perfectly happy with the Star Wars story staying just the way it is, with six episodes. Anything additional to the saga would seem almost forced.

That being said, both the Star Wars trilogies are arguably two of the better movie trilogies. Coming up soon, a list of the best trilogies of all time.

The Drop

This will probably be the last posting I do about LA. While I was living in the leaking shipwreck called “the Theta Xi house”, I lived next to a guy that was in a band called “The Drop”. I went to see a couple of his band’s live shows, and these guys are absolutely boss!

As everyone knows, the music industry has been on a steady decline ever since the late nineties. With the emergence of emo, scream-o, and fake punk, a lot of people have been turned off to new music and new bands. So where does the music industry have to go now? Simple, back when it was most recently the greatest.

“The Drop” is a very 90’s-esk band, however, they’re unlike any other band I have heard from the 90’s, so it’s hard to describe them. It’s a distinct style that sticks out from the same old run-of-the-mill crap that you hear on the radio now-a-days. The guitar solos rock like early rock n’ roll, the vocals are fresh, and drums, base, and everything else are just plain awesome.

I admit it, I’m biased because I know one of the guys in the band and talked to him through the paper-thin wall just about every day Office-Space-style, but simply put, this band totally rocks. If you’re in the LA area, check out The Drop live if you get the chance. If you’re not in the LA area, check out their website. There are only 3 songs on their site, and two of them don't really fit the description I just gave in this article, but check it out, it's worth it in my opinion. If there is a downside to this band, it is they don't play "Something For Nothing" nearly enough.
