Daily Top 5 >>> 8/5/10

  • "Evil" I hadn't heard about this until reading The New York Times this afternoon. Google is evil. Google is the real life The Brain, except they may actually succeed. Apparently, on Monday, it will be decided whether or not Google and Verizon can partner and essentially ruin the Internet. I'm not exaggerating. If successful, the Web will soon resemble cable TV instead of the free-for-all we've all grown up with. Verizon will be able to speed up certain services to certain people who choose to pay an upped charge. This violates one of the commandments of the Internet: content shalt not receive(th) special treatment. This is big. This is like...imagine if the government gave defense contractors no-bid contracts to operate in a war zone. Oh, wait... *I know I use Google to blog*
  • "Weed Rap" In more serious news, Harlem x JETS' own Smoke DZA dropped his new mixtape yesterday. It's called George Kush Da Button, and is my pick for 'Mixtape Title of the Year'. Featuring Curren$y, Big K.R.I.T. and more.
  • "Wyclef" Sigh, why not. I think Pitbull is supposed to succeed Castro in Cuba too, now that I think about it. Wyclef sure don't play when it comes to foreshadowing.
  • "Vitaminwater" Owned by Coca-Cola. Just in case you didn't know. I knew that, and therefore didn't rely on their glorified sugar water for my daily nutrients. Anyway, some nonprofit organization decided that they could no longer stand idly by while Vitaminwater terrorized soccer moms and sorority girls everywhere with their misleading ad campaigns. They sued Coca-Cola (presumably for something other than cash since, you know, they aren't about profit) for making unwarranted health claims. The Coke people, after drying their laughter-induced tears with bald eagle feathers and telling their slaves interns to hang up, proved that capitalist dynasties do in fact have a sense of humor (and thus, souls) and answered with this: "no consumer could reasonably be misled into thinking Vitaminwater was a healthy beverage." That was it. So, in 13 words, Coke called all its haters both retarded and guilty of shelling out billions annually due to said retardedness. I gotta meet the Coke people, they know how to have a good time.
  • "Bangs"

    Some of you have probably already seen this. It's been floating around for this past week. Either way, it's still another Bangs banger for that ass, guhl. Getting that Honda money now. Props TSS.
