Joe’s Sloppy 2009: Year in Review

I know this is long overdue but it’s one of those things that you have to do. Like talk to relatives! 2009 has not been the best year for me. In fact, it was quite possibly the worst. Started out with my grandfather passing away (his funeral being the day right before my birthday), my mother getting diagnosed with breast cancer, our house getting broken into ( a week after she was diagnosed), rising insurance rates on my car, getting laid off from my job, and my two year relationship with my girlfriend ended. Oh and my cat got hit by a car and killed. On my sister’s birthday.

But moving on in lightning speed headlines of hilarity (in no particular order and if you don’t know them, google them dammit).

I became a Super Dude in the beginning of last year (which Alex is probably banging his head on the desk for as we speak).

One of these boys is our new President...

George W. Bush got the hell out of office and the first African American president was elected. Finally the guy I voted for actually got elected.

Madoff goes to Jail! (get it?! like Madea goes to jail? You know that’s funnier than anything Tyler Perry has ever done, so stop rolling your eyes).

Governer Rod Blagojevich missed his calling as a ticket scalper.

The Sahalis and the Heenes both made themselves look like assholes on national television in attempts to get their own reality tv shows. I guess the reality is that they are in fact assholes! See, no need to go on tv and waste anymore airtime than you already have!

Kayne didn’t think Taylor Swift’s video was the best female video of the year. Leno got back at Kayne with a “yo momma” joke and made him cry. Oh that Kayne! Coming this fall to CBS.

Michael Jackson died, boys pants were at half mast that day. (and the hate mail comes in 3..2…1…)

Patrick Swayze is in the big Roadhouse in the sky kicking angels in the face and dancing in leather pants.

Farrah Fawcett passed away after a grueling battle with cancer. (no joke there)

Billy Mays, no longer here.

Brittany Murphy, where were you Clive Owen?! (that’s a Sin City reference joke folks, go watch it)

David Letterman is a pimp!

Chris Brown: Come on...at least he's not Michael Vick

Chris Brown auditioned to play the role of Ike Turner in the remake of “What’s love got to do with it?”

John and Kate plus 8 -1 = Psychotic crazy devil woman and cheating thieving bastard plus 8!

Super Dude Dave and Super Dudette Michelle got married and even went so far as to be responsible for inviting me to their wedding!! Super Dudette Laura was also married in 2009!!!

A sequel was made about that movie with fangless, abstinent, glittery vampires. The ozone layer was destroyed by the intense reflection from smiling teenaged girls with braces all across america.

District 9 came out! Finally a breath of fresh air in sci fi films that isn’t sucked out by George Lucas.

Star Trek nerds were pissed about the remake, people who get laid were not.

The Hangover, finally they made a story about my life!

Up…. didn’t see that one.

Avatar was awesome. It had to be. If I waited that long in line and it sucked, someone was getting kidney punched. And by kidney punch I mean decapitated and set on fire. I left a bit of a mess after seeing X-Men Origins : Wolverine. Oops :P

Transformers : Revenge of the fallen. Not much to meet the eye. I blame that for my failed relationship. Fuckin robots…

The Year of Innuendos about the name "Woods"

Tiger Woods Pro Golf 2009 rated M for mature. Contains, brief nudity, sexual references, and your wife BEATING THE SHIT OUT OF YOU!

I wasted my life on:

Batman : Arkham Asylum (best superhero game ever made)

Resident Evil 5 disappointed me (and I’m a huge fan of the series)

Beatles Rockband, Assassins Creed 2 ( addicting and awesome)

Left 4 Dead 2 ( fun and frustrating)

Prototype ( disguising yourself as an old woman and scaling up buildings while tearing someone into pieces had never been this fun since season 5 of Golden Girls. RIP Bea Arthur.)

Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Athena ( two very fun games in one fueled by Vin Diesel the muscle nerd)

Ghostbusters (not the greatest game but man did I have nostalgic tears streaming down my face)

X-Men Origins: Wolverine (a game where the actual video game is better than the movie. I’m as dumbfounded as you are!)

Red Faction Guerilla, Modern Warfare 2, Dragon Age: Origins (my life)

Grand Theft Auto: Lost and the Damned (How DLC should be!)

Still haven't found him...but damn is he lookin' good!

So there you have it. Not a truly impressive year, there was a lot of international news going on that year but it was filled with terrorist attacks, assassinations, corrupt leaders and like the true American I am I laughed and chewed on piece of cow and read the bible!

Actually I just didn’t feel like writing about it, but I have a feeling 2010 will kick ass especially for our loyal readers and fans out there! We have some pretty awesome stuff we’re working on for this year, The Super Dudes Power Show, our usual mix of awesome guest writers an contributors, and kick ass articles (maybe not this one but the others rock!) and we hope you love it!

Stay tuned Super Dudes and Super Dudettes!!!

I Lost Interest in Music in 2009: Billboard’s Top 25

I used to like music. Really. I tried to follow all of the newest up-and-coming bands, went to concerts regularly, attempted to stay on top of what music was getting popular. Now I don’t give a shit anymore…and here’s why.

There is a wonderful quote from Kanye West in which he proclaims himself the voice of the decade–perhaps the voice of a generation…or at least the loudest voice. Sadly, this may be true. West appears all over the Billboard charts in various songs–and while doing so–has simultaneously been responsible for some of the most memorable controversies in recent pop culture.

He's not MY president.

The independent music that I used to associate myself with fucking sucks now. It’s all electronic nonsense and experiemental bullshit. I hate the fact that we stopped progressing musically in this decade and just fucked off right back to the ’80s (the decade that destroyed music).

Let’s take a look at Billboard’s Top 25 pieces of shit that pass for music these days:

25. HOT N COLD–Katy Perry–Not a terrible song to start off the top 25, but if you’ve only heard one Katy Perry song in your life, it probably isn’t this one. She’s the one who kissed a girl and liked it, remember? Don’t worry kids. This video is just as easy to rub one out to.

24. HALO–Beyonce–This chart-topper has to be contested. There’s no way I will believe that at least 90% of the YouTube views for this song weren’t from gamers looking for cheats and walkthroughs.

23. MY LIFE WOULD SUCK WITHOUT YOU–Kelly Clarkson–Isn’t it amazing that the first ever winner of American Idol is still out and about, allowed to continue to make shitty music? Every other winner has mysteriously vanished over the years. I suspect foul play…

22. BEST I EVER HAD–Drake–For those of you who don’t know, Drake is Aubrey Graham, the actor who played Jimmy in TV’s Degrassi: The Next Generation. And he’s still breaking the hearts of pre-teens to this day…sigh…tits.

21. THE CLIMB–Miley Cyrus–A blonde wig transforms Miley Cyrus into unrecognizable pop star Hannah Montana in the hit film: Hannah Montana: The Movie. If you want to know more about the song after hearing that, you’re retarded. This song is so pop-irritating, it should feature quirky animated squirrels in 3D.

20. DOWN–Jay Sean (ft. Lil Wayne)–Is anybody else fucking tired of Lil Wayne? This mushmouth motherfucker appeared out of nowhere and he’s been ruining my life with catchy and irritating songs ever since.

19. KISS ME THRU THE PHONE–Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em (ft. Sammie)–I think Soulja Boy (Tell ‘Em) needs to disappear. All he does is bitch about his fame and fortune and beg for Twitter followers. Fuck ‘em.

18. LIVE YOUR LIFE–T.I. (ft. Rihanna)–I’m actually quite fond of Rihanna, and this song got me hooked. You can’t use the Numa Numa song in Hip Hop and not be iconic to nerds everywhere…especially if you appear topless on the internets…or have a rapper name the same as our science calculators.

17. I KNOW YOU WANT ME–Pitbull–Perhaps this song’s downfalls are twofold. On one hand, Pitbull is not “featuring” any other artist, which is frowned upon. Second, this song crosses Shaggy with Mambo Number 5 and I fucking hate it.

16. BLAME IT–Jamie Foxx (ft. T. Pain)–Jamie Foxx knows that you have to feature a more innovative artist to get on the charts and that’s exactly what he did. Thanks to T. Pain, we have the miracle of using auto-tune for musical effect. Before he came along, we were just using it so sluts could hold a tune.

15. KNOCK YOU DOWN–Keri Hilson (ft. Kanye West & Ne-Yo)–You have to really try to hate Kanye West. He gives you so many reasons, yet you let his music get the best of you. It’s like water-boarding.

14. USE SOMEBODY–Kings of Leon–Kings of Leon got popular earlier on this decade, but nobody knew who the fuck they were until this year. You pay a price when you become famous though–you start to suck. Especially because they’re now about 4 albums deep.

13. YOU FOUND ME–The Fray–There’s still some rock on the Billboard Charts, believe it or not…but it’s all crap-rock. You may like the Fray, but you may also be a fag.

12. DEAD AND GONE–T.I. (ft. Justin Timberlake)–Remember when you had to be either a chick or a gaylord to like Justin Timberlake? Now you can be a smooth-rappin’ convict and be his BFF.

11. YOU BELONG WITH ME–Taylor Swift–You know, oddly enough, I actually don’t mind Taylo–sorry, sorry, I’ll finish later…I just wanted to let everyone know that Beyonce had the greatest video of all time.

10. GIVES YOU HELL–The All-American Rejects–Remember the dark days when you actually listened to The All-American Rejects? You won’t admit it, but you haven’t changed a fucking bit.

9. HEARTLESS–Kanye West–I actually didn’t know that Kanye West was a solo performer. I thought he only appeared on other artists’ albums. We all learned something today.

8. SINGLE LADIES (PUT A RING ON IT)–Beyonce–When you’re married to Jay-Z, you can have whatever you want…as long as you “put a ring on it.” And by “a ring,” I mean: “your lips”…and by “it,” I mean: “his cock.”

7. I’M YOURS–Jason Mraz–The geek in the pink is back. Somehow I thought this song came out before 2009, but then I remembered that all Jason Mraz’s songs sound the same.

6. RIGHT ROUND–Flo Rida–If you’re going to cover a 1985 Dead or Alive song, you have to emphasize that you’re singing about oral sex…and then top it off with a reassuring, “No Homo.”

5. LOVE STORY–Taylor Swift–I don’t get the Taylor Swift phenomenon, honestly. She’s eye candy with a sweet voice, but…oh, right.

4. I GOTTA FEELING–The Black Eyed Peas–This song depresses the shit out of me. I don’t know why, but I gotta feeling it’s because it reminds me that somewhere out there, someone is listening to this song at a killer party, and I’m stuck in a shithole apartment playing Earthworm Jim.

3. JUST DANCE–Lady Gaga (ft. Colby O’Donis)–It’s important for an unknown artist to enlist the help of another unknown artist for emotional support. Old videos of “Lady Gaga” lead me to believe that somewhere in that gruff exterior is the voice of an angel–and possibly a penis.

2. POKER FACE–Lady Gaga–This year, audio technicians (for some reason) decided to compile the most unpleasant and aggrovating noises into a collaboration they dubbed “The Most Annoying Song Ever.” I would rather listen to that on repeat for the rest of my life than hear Poker Face one more time.

1. BOOM BOOM POW–The Black Eyed Peas–Somehow I managed to avoid this song all year. I never even heard it until just recently, and I’m pretty glad. The Black Eyed Peas are hit or miss for me, and this song would only be tolerable if there were a chick grinding against you and the bass was so loud that you didn’t give a shit.

Thanks, 2009. You really destroyed every interest I had in ever listening to music again. You gave me a bunch of new bands to listen to, a bunch of new music by bands I like, and another year of shit to play non-stop on every radio station in every city.

Although, when you put ‘em all together, it’s not that bad at all…

Celebrity Horseshit: “Nigga Stole My Mic!”

alexbwAs long as it’s a hot topic, let’s discuss the actions of Kanye West during the MTV VMA’s, shall we? First of all–the actions took place at an award ceremony so ridiculous and unimportant–a locale so prone to spectacle–that its entire title is an acronym. Even in its name, it is screaming, “This is an entertainment show…it is not–we repeat NOT–a legitimate award ceremony.” It’s like the motherfucking Teen Choice Awards, people…grow the fuck up.

Another person who needs to grow the fuck up is Kanye West (see, I’m on your side, too).

There is a serious disconnect between his talent and his ego, and that needs to find its way into Check Mate as soon as humanly possible. Jay-Z describes West as a “genius.” Fact. I would disagree with Mr. Z, respectfully. Kanye West is not a genius. He’s an artist and a talented musician, no doubt. However, genius describes a certain knowingness and a level of unprecedented brilliance that comes along every once in a blue moon.

Say Say Say what you want!

Say Say Say what you want!

Let’s take The Beatles for example. As musicians, would you consider them to be “genius?” That’s a real question. Feel free to comment…because I don’t know. I would consider them the best band in musical history…but are they more “genius” than Beethoven? Mozart?

If Kanye West is “genius,” where does that leave Jay-Z? He would never say that West is better than he is…so what does that make Hova? Is Jay-Z some kind of god-man?

I’m getting off topic…excuse me. Let’s look at a random Facebook comment:

“kaynes a racist mother fucker who deserves to get shot”

Really? At what point between, “George Bush doesn’t care about Black People,” and, “I’m really happy for you…but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time,” do we say: That’s it Kanye…someone should shoot you down.…???!?!?!

Hey, remember how you thought 2Pac was still alive?

Hey, remember how you thought 2Pac was still alive?

First off, nobody should get shot; no matter if you’re a merely loud-mouth rapper or a Neo-Nazi fuckhead…nobody should be gunned down. Ever.

I’m sure that this individual on Facebook wasn’t thinking with a clear head, but anyone who actually thinks this should probably stay indoors for their entire life.

(Rewind) Taylor Swift is a talented young artist and she deserved her moment in the sun…and Kanye West “ruined” that. Beyonce (wife of Kanye West’s BFF Jay-Z) had the decency to give Taylor Swift her moment back. But did Kanye’s actions really hurt Taylor Swift? Undoubtedly, she’s received more recognition NOW than EVER!

OK, but can she ACT?

OK, but can she ACT?

My fucking MOM probably never heard of Taylor Swift…and now her news channels are buzzing her name all day. Are you happy now, America? Now EVERYONE knows who Taylor Swift is!

Does Taylor Swift have more talent and potential than Beyonce? Of course not…but that doesn’t mean she should be denied her spotlight.

It wasn’t even for fucking BEST SONG…it was for BEST VIDEO! Should fucking any fucking artist be recognized for their music video?! FUCK NO!

The music video is solely the vision of the people who MADE that video.

America…MTV…it’s time to chillax (white people are the only people who use that term anymore anyways). Kanye, you’re never going to gain anything by pulling this shit. And the next time your publicist tells you to apologize, say “no.” That way, only the people who actually like you will continue to pay attention.

FACT: Paul McCartney has actually SEEN a black man.

FACT: Paul McCartney has actually SEEN a black man.

In conclusion, America, we have so much shit on our plate right now. This is a distraction–to say the least–from real issues and real problems. I’m not going to tell you what to think. I want YOU to tell ME how you feel. But to sum it up, for me, I’d be fine laughing at Kanye’s antics while appreciating his music.

Music is one of the strongest things humanity has going for it. It’s bigger than politics; bigger than religion. Music will always be around; and if you throw out Kanye West, there’s a fucking billion other up-and-coming young artists to take his place…your college room-mate is just too fucking lazy to be famous. Isn’t writing easier when you just polished off a bottle of Brandy?
