Kanye is clearly a gigantic jerk but a talented one nonetheless. It's no wonder Macca loves working with him so much. He probably gives him flashbacks to his late songwriter partner. (Although Lennon was more of a jerk than Kanye, seeing as West seems to treat his wife with affection and isn't abusive)

Are we really comparing Kanye's talent as a "songwriter" to John Lennon's now? Oh boy.

What does any of that have to do with comparing him to John Lennon as a songwriter?

Also, I'll give McCartney a pass on pretty much anything because he's Paul McCartney but he's definitely made more than a few questionable musical decisions over the years...
Well clearly McCartney respects West enough to continue work with him, and claim on multiple occasions that West was one of his favourite contemporary artists. Unless you consider yourself a higher authority on musical taste than Sir Paul?

Anyway, here are some more elaborate thoughts on the MSG show I went to (originally posted this on a different forum):

Very fun show. Lots of solid matches with largely predictable results (but what else can you expect at a house show...). This is the first time I've been to a live WWF/E show since the late 90s and I was impressed by it. Assuming Summerslam ends up being held at the Barclays Center, I'm almost certainly going to go to it after attending this.

A couple of random notes (sorry if it's a lot of the same stuff from other reports):

- Very diverse crowd. Lots of black and hispanic families with kids who loved Cena and Reigns. Lots of groups of white guys in their 20s and 30s who hated Cena and Reigns. Absolutely nobody was giving anybody a hard time about who they were cheering for or cheering against though. Good atmosphere. Everyone came together over their appreciation for Hulk Hogan and the other legends later on in the show.

- It was cool to see a bunch of heels win matches at a house show (Bad News Barrett, Tyson Kidd & Cesaro, Nikki Bella, etc.) even if it was only because they went in with titles that they weren't going to drop without being on TV.

-There were "We want Lesnar" chants at times during the show in my section. Considering he's not even coming out at the shows he's supposed to come out on these days, I knew he was never going to show up...

- There were also a ton of "woos" going on even before the show started. It made me think Flair might show up and he did. I just wish that Piper had showed up too!

- The Triple Threat match for the IC title was really damn good. Ambrose was more popular than Ziggler with this crowd. Barrett had a lot of heat.

- The New Day was booed quite a bit (especially after they lost their match).

- The Chris Jericho segment/match with Harper was high quality stuff and it was well received.

- Paige was over big time with this crowd.

- Triple H acted like a babyface throughout the evening (made Cena vs. Rusev a title match, paid tribute to Hogan, etc.) and was treated like a babyface by the crowd.

- Cena and Rusev actually put on a great match that the crowd was on fire for. It was interesting to see Rusev tap out (even though the referee wasn't present). That's something you don't see on TV.

- R-Truth vs. Fandango was used as a piss/beer break match by many people including myself.

- Even though Orton vs. Wyatt was technically a heel vs. heel match, both guys received babyface reactions (especially Orton). Solid match, makes me wonder if we'll see a program between them on TV in the near future.

- The Hogan tribute was quite lengthy but the crowd ate it up. Everyone loved Hogan, Flair, The Outsiders, Jimmy Hart, Triple H, etc. Nobody really seemed like they were trying to stay in character and the emotions seemed genuine. The only things that were booed in this segment were the two MSG representatives who came out (lol) and the mention of WCW (weird).

- The main event felt a little rushed as they were clearly pressed for time but it was still decent. Rollins had a lot of heat but Reigns had a decent amount too (heh). Everyone loved Daniel Bryan. Reigns won with the spear.

In summary, this was a very enjoyable show! I'm glad I went.

Here's a decent article about the show (with all of the results included):

And, for the record, I am not opposed to alcohol.  I'm just opposed to excessive drinking and getting drunk.  I'm also opposed to people burning their family's paycheck on beer instead of (junk) food or (premium cable/porn) bills.  I, myself, like to enjoy a glass of wine every now and then.  I haven't had any since July 2013 because I am of the belief that if I have a drink then I cannot drive the rest of the day and since I am often by myself, then I cannot indulge in a drink.  I have no problem with any of my friends having controlled drinks just so long as they don't get drunk and embarrass themselves or their family.  That said, I never condemn anybody if they do get drunk nor do I call them out, because I do things that are just as bad.

Fixed that for you.

So Brock Lesnar apparently walked out of Raw last week without doing whatever he was supposed to do (attack Reigns?) because he was pissed off about something (contract negotiations with WWE?). Then a few nights later he shows up at UFC 184 in a business suit, chatting it up with UFC President Dana White. Haha, what a troll Brock is!

I have a feeling this Wrestlemania is going to turn into a glorious disaster!

You can't get drunk on 3.2%. Well, I guess you could but you'd have to drink a hell of a lot of that piss water.

Well, I went to the MSG show last night and I definitely felt like I got my money's worth. It was a fun night with a really diverse and lively crowd. Almost every match was really good and the Hulk Hogan tribute was really pretty fantastic.

Depending exactly where it's held, I'm probably going to look into going to Summerslam now.

Also, I apparently need to catch up on the last few pages of the series I produce.

Are they talking again, or is she posting passive-aggressive memes to her Facebook page? What gives?

Both.

Update on Allison:  We are back to being good friends.  She was in Tulsa yesterday for a doctor's appointment and she called and asked if she could stop by for a few minutes.  I was happy to have her over.  We visited about several things for about 30 minutes including a non-profit business that she is trying to start up and obtain a 501 (3) (c) status on it.  She wants me to hop on board with her handling the social media platform as kind of a second job from my regular job.  It is a side business for her and she is keeping her job at the university because of the health insurance.  She doesn't have the luxury of Indian Health Care.  I need more information on the business before I go into it with her, such as what it does, but it is a nice gesture at the very least.

This sounds like a truly fantastic potential storyline! Bravo!

So did any of you guys bother watching Trashlane? I mean I wasn't expecting much but that was one seriously underwhelming show...

Jeff, did you enjoy Fly Me To The Moon? I'm not really sure how a grown man could sit through that (at least without drinking heavily). 

I think we ended up seeing a different movie "Journey to the Center of the Earth".  It's been 6 1/2 years so it's a little fuzzy, but I remember Journey, but not the other.

I actually remember that one!

Did you text Allison tonight?

Is there anything finer than having a flashback memory of great old Bushie post and then finding it and reading it and having a good ol' chuckle again?

Like his plan to take his new girlfriend on a date to go see the G-rated kids film Fly Me to the Moon. Sexy.

My girlfriend and I are going on a double date this Friday to see Fly Me to the Moon.  Its just a simple animated G-rated movie (something my generation won't even touch), only 95 minutes long, but we're looking forward to it.  Its in Dolby-Digital 3D.



jesus

I don't even remember my theater carrying that kiddie movie.

19% on Rotten Tomatoes btw. lol.

Bushie is still essentially a child. The idea of growing up scares him - a lot.

I suppose I can relate to him in some ways but he tends to take this whole "forever young" thing to bizarre extremes.

For instance, why is a single 32-year-old man who has no children still regularly attending kiddie parties? I'm sure his appearance at those gatherings makes everyone super uncomfortable.
23  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Update Season XXI: "Scientific Facts Are Not Hard And Fast Rules." on: February 23, 2015, 07:51:20 pm
Bushie, let me make this clear.

You make pathetic choices.  You are given plenty of advice, yet you ignore all of it.

You come from a very privileged upbringing.  You have loving parents, a college degree, a car, and plenty of financial support.  You get plenty of advice from us for how to improve yourself, yet it is all for nought.

Everything you do is a fiasco.  You use religion as a shield to cover up your own pathetic life choices.


God would not be happy with the fact that you lie, defraud your parents, and live a life of sin (gluttony).  The Bible says that NO CHRISTIAN WILL LIVE IN SIN (1 John 3:9).

Bushie, by your own religious book, you WILL GO TO HELL IF YOU DIED TODAY. 

Your eating habits are GLUTTONOUS (not to mention all the other frauds you've commited.  I'm not judging you.  YOUR RELIGIOUS TEXT IS.  Gluttony's a sin, plain as day (probably moreso than homosexuality).  And you continually partake in that sin with no repentance or contrition.  Not to mention your pattern of lying and extortion (mooching off of your parents), and the Bible says that liars will have no place in the Kingdom of God (1 Corinthians 6:9)

I am not an Evangelical Bushie, but using its interpretation of the Bible it is pretty clear you are not saved.

EDIT:  This may seem harsh, but I really think you need a major wake-up call.  I detest Evangelical theology, but since Bushie subscribes to it, he needs a dose of his own medicine.

That doesn't scare me.

It's not about scaring you, Bushie.  I'm trying to point out your hypocrisy in claiming you are saved by your religion when your own text says you are not.

The point is this:  you believe the Bible so much that you would reject basic science (such as the Big Bang Theory and evolution) because the Bible says so.

The Bible also says that no true Christian can live a life of continual sin.  Check out the Bible verses I sent you.  A Christian that is living in sin surely is not saved based on your religious text. 

Explain YOUR interpretations of the verses I cited if they don't mean what they clearly say.

My faith is on solid ground.  On Christ the Solid Rock I stand.  All other ground is sinking sand.  I am secure enough in my faith that I do not believe a word you said.  Your post is just Satan trying to twist Scripture to convince me I am going to hell.  Wrong buster.  I am saved by faith through grace and not based on my works.  You apparently didn't read the passages about grace.  When Jesus died on the cross, his last words were "It is finished."  This means my sin debt, past, present and future is PAID IN FULL.  I can never do a single thing again to lose my salvation.  Once He saved me, I cannot EVER lose my salvation no matter what I do.  That's not my words.  The Southern Baptists believe in Once Saved, Always Saved.  I adhere to that wholeheartedly and I believe that is the correct view.  If I died right now, I have no doubt I would be entering the pearly gates of heaven where I will find Jesus waiting for me with open arms and utter the words "Well done, my good and faithful servant.  You have been faithful over a few things, I will put you in charge over many things in my Kingdom.  Enter thou into the joy of the LORD!".   I have no doubt and nobody can convince me otherwise, so they might as well stop.

Now I'm imaging Bushie being "in charge over many things" in heaven. Good lord indeed!

I got 20/24 right on my predictions. These things are just so damn predictable for the most part.

I wish Keaton had won (even though I predicted Redmayne).
