Shut up about the iPod-killers [Jun. 20th, 2006|03:14 am]
Annoyed with the world today?

[I Listen to |There There (live)- Radiohead]

I am sick of reading about companies trying to make the ultimate iPod-killing digital audio player. Everybody and their fucking dog are trying to make the mp3 player that will completely take hold of the market and leave the iPod in the dust. Hate to break it to ya, friends, but it ain't gonna happen. I don't care how good your digital audio player is, I don't care if it has a bigger screen, a radio tuner, has tetris and wifi, or costs a hundred bucks less and comes with a year's supply of steak, it won't make a difference. Sure, there wil probably be better digital audio players than the iPod, and hell, there probably are right now, but when people think mp3 player, they think iPod. People don't really buy them because they're the best, or the cheapest, or whatever, they buy them because what's the point in having an mp3 player if it isn't an iPod? Our culture is about as deep as petri dish; when shopping for a digital audio player, people are shopping half for function, and half for status symbol. People want the shitty white earbuds, they want the sexy look, they want people to know they have an iPod. I don't care if you make the fuckin greatest musical device in the universe, there will always be people buying the iPod en masse, because some people are shallow and need the boost to their self-confidence that having that iPod will give you. There will always be the people who need a pair of shitty white earbuds to assure them that they are hip, that they are cool, and that they have money and standing in the world.
And before you people start calling me a hypocrite, before you say "hey wait aren't you on your like fourth iPod (because your iPod mini kept dying and having to be replaced by Apple and then you decided you needed a 30 gig black video iPod)?", I'll admit- I wanted an iPod because they're fucking adorable. And easy to use. Not for the headphones, though, cause they don't stay in my ears. But yes, I am shallow in my music player choice- I want something to hold all my music and look fucking smexay while doing it, I want something that people have heard of. This doesn't make me a hypocrite, it makes me even more right. I can personally attest to the fact that the iPod will always be popular even if Steve Jobs says we need to buy a new one at least once a year, simply because they have the name and the looks and the status. So give up, Microsoft, give up, Sony, and suck my nuts, Toshiba, cause the iPod is ready for you, armored in the shallow adoration of millions of two-dmensional, superficial audiophiles.

Kids return 20G in lost Yank tix, get to see games



BY ALISON GENDAR
DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER


Jersey boys who done good, (l. to r.) Chris Osmun, Corey Platt, Pat Huck, Matt Stephens, Matt Rea, Jaleel Fraser, Christian Flores, Kevin McNany, Will Cummings and Kenny Miller at Summit, N.J., city hall yesterday with 20G worth of Yanks tix.

When ten New Jersey kids stumbled upon $20,000 worth of Yankee playoff tickets lying on the street, they celebrated their good fortune.
Then the kids from Summit did something remarkable - they turned the tickets in.

"It didn't seem right keeping them," 12-year-old Chris Osmun modestly explained. "Each ticket was worth a lot and there were tons of tickets. We thought if you had bought something with that much money, you would want to know what happened to them."

The precious tickets, bound for the regional headquarters of Wachovia bank, tumbled out the back of a UPS truck Monday and were strewn across the streets of Summit - just waiting for someone to grab.

The Summit Ten could have kept the bounty. After all, wasn't "finders keepers" meant for this kind of thing?

Instead, the seventh-graders turned over the tickets to the Summit police and earned the honor and reward that come from doing the right thing.

"It's been pretty amazing," Osmun said.

Yankee owner George Steinbrenner applauded the kids' honesty, and invited them, along with three guests each, to Thursday's division-clincher against the Minnesota Twins. For some of the boys, it was their first trip to Yankee Stadium.

"It's a tribute to their honesty and total integrity," Steinbrenner said in a statement relayed by spokesman Howard Rubenstein. "Those kids showed true spirit."

Wachovia plans to invite the kids and their parents to see a New Jersey Nets game in December from the bank's corporate box.

But it seems only fair for the boys - who passed up a chance to see the Yanks in the playoffs - to experience October magic in Yankee Stadium.

So the Daily News will treat the boys next week to prime box seats to Game 2 of the American League Division Series.

"That's great!" said Matt Rea, 12.

Of Wachovia's 70 missing tickets, 66 were found and turned over to Summit police.

Corey Platt, 12, said some of his school friends initially thought it was "messed up and retarded" to turn in the tickets.

"Yeah, they did think we were crazy," said Patrick Huck, 12. "But we couldn't keep 'em."

Still, the boys were unprepared for the hoopla their decision would create.

Elizabeth Platt, Corey's mom, said the response has been a bit overwhelming. Her son was supposed to serve detention Thursday for missing a homework assignment. But detention was put off until next week so he could go to the Yankee game.

"Corey hasn't been the greatest student at school, so it's good to see him be recognized this way for doing something good," she said. "I just don't want all the attention to make him think that there's always a reward for doing the right thing."

This Weeks Featured Movie
(WARNING: THE FOLLOWING MOVIE SUCKS MORE DICK THAN WHITNEY HOUSTON TRYING TO SCORE SOME COKE!)

Van Helsing


Where to begin with this troubled film. The premise had promise, so I ask where did it go wrong. Well i'll get to that in a second but first i'd like to help all of you by telling you to stay the vanHELL away from this movie. Save your money and go see Mean Girls or that new olsen twin movie as you'll prob get more your moneys worth with those than this. I can out of the theatre about a half hour ago thinking to myself why did I waste my time and money and to tell you the truth most of the audience did as well. Let me just save you the trouble of seeing it and tell you all the main shit. Van Helsing is a monster hunter working for the Vatican, to the people of the world he's a murderer more so after he kills Mr. Hyde. Dracula had Frankenstein built so he could give life to an army of baby vampires using Frankensteins Energy. If Kate Beckinsale dies her family will rot in purgatory due to a promise her family made to god to kill dracula and shes the last member alive. It seems that Frankenstein survives and majors in English while underground for a year with no contact to the world. Werelwolves are the only thing that can kill Dracula, Van Helsing just happens to get bitten by one. Van Helsing was the original murderer of Dracula as a human resulting in him becoming a vampire, meaning Helsing is an immortal. Dracula has a cure for being a werewolf, and they use it to save Van Helsing even though Kate Beckinsales character dies in the process. Now let me start ripping apart the movie from here, If a werewolf actually sheds his fur when returning back to human form with a fur loin cloth which makes no sense watsoever. The brides of dracula have no nipples, ass crack, or vagina despite being naked. Dracula is supposedly imprisoned in an ice world but has no trouble traveling back and forth between worlds despite being banished. Frankenstein speaks perfect english seemingly he was given the brain of a scholar.
Mr. Hyde will forever be subdued into being a giant hulk even though, in the original books he's just an alter personality who gets some minor appearance changes. Kate Beckinsale can survive 30 ft drops onto rocks and tree braches without breaking a limb or even getting a cut, yet when punched she will.
Hugh Jackman and Kate Beckinsale and Frankenstein work at Circus Du Sole. You can hold on to a rubber rope in the rain hanging 100's of feet above the ground jump and catch onto another one while not slipping off. OH YEAH LETS NOT FORGET THAT ACCORDING TO STEPHEN SOMMERS VAMPIRES AN WEREWOLVES CAN NOW COME OUT DURING THE DAY EVEN THOUGH TRADITION AND MYTH DICTATES OTHERWISE FOR AT LEAST 100 YEARS. AND THESE ARE THE MINOR THINGS! ACTING, CAMERAWORK ALL AWFUL! BECKINSALE'S ROMANIAN ACCENT IS BRUTAL. ACTUALLY ALL THE ROMANIAN ACCENTS ARE. OOPS ALMOST FORGOT THE INCREDIBLY BAD CG! I DONT BLAME HUGH JACKMAN FOR HIS MISTAKE I FORGIVE HIM AS LONG AS HE MAKES X-MEN 3 NEXT AND NOT KATE & LEOPOLD 2 OR A SEQUEL TO THIS! STEPHEN SOMMERS YOU FUCKING HACK YOU DESTROYED CLASSIC CHARACTERS AND NEARLY KILLED JACKMANS CAREER, YOU STINK NOW DIE AND GOTO HELL ALONG WITH THIS TERRIBLE MOVIE!

I give this movie a HALF FULL SHOT GLASS OF WATER! ITS THAT BAD!

PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM THIS, DON'T GIVE THEM MONEY SO THEY THINK PEOPLE LIKED IT AND MAKE A SEQUEL BECAUSE IF THEY DO THE NEXT CHARACTERS TO DIE ARE THE INVISIBLE MAN AND CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON!

DON'T GET MAD ABOUT THE SPOILERS I JUST SAVED YOU $10 YOU SHOULD ALL THANK ME!

I HAVENT SEEN PEOPLE HATE A MOVIE SO MUCH SINCE MATRIX REVOLUTIONS! YEP IT'S ACTUALLY WORSE!

Now if only I could get my money and time back.

I hate Makeover Shows! [May. 7th, 2004|02:15 am]
Annoyed with the world today?
drownedstar
This is my first post and I couldn't think of anything more needing to rant about today than this.. Makeover Shows! i hate them. and sitting home all day today flipping the channels on cable made me acknowlege this even more.
Every single fucking Channel! Wedding makeovers, fashion makovers, celebrity makeovers, fat to thin makeovers, teenage makeovers, plastic surgury makeovers... it's endless. it's redundant. when are people gonna start looking in the mirror and being happy with what they see. all a makeover is is fancy clothes, hair and makeup. those things do not define a person. a person defines a person. not what they look like. just because a person has all of a sudden become attractive does not mean that they're life is gonna dramastically change. it just means that a man or woman will look at them in a sexual matter. Is that all people care about? that is what's wrong with the world. we are too consumed with appearence. i mean hey, i am guilty of giving into expensive makeup and clothing, checking myself in the mirror ten times an hour, obsessing about not feeling "thin enought" for society. but i would never go to an extreme of embaressing myself on TV by saying "hey i think i'm ugly! fix me .. all within the span of a half-hour!" You look at celebrities, especiall Britney Spears.. do girls really think they can look like her? She doesnt even look like that. It takes a team of trainers, dieticians, makeup artists, hair stylests, fashion stylests,good lighting, and air-brushing to look like that. It's fake. She wakes up in he morning looking like crap just like the rest of us. And these makeover shows feed into societys need to think they can be perfect. no one is perfect. we were all made to be different and look different. its time people start embracing that.
