  1. I'm in, with scyhigh99. :2thumbs:
  2. Thats one of the most disrespectful things i eva heard, how do you think the families of victims would react to comments like that ← As I said, I meant bombs in a more untouchable aspect.. like not bombs exactly, but the effects of bombs greatness in awakening people. And it was as well disrespectful not quoting the "as long as it doesnt hurt anyone in any way"-part, since the thing you quoted making me some kind of monster. And you gotta see through the explosive part to see what I meant. Of course I could hav expressed myself better - I just imagined people would be wise enough to understand it abstract metaphors... ← Sorry if we misinterpreted you, I thought we might have. I guess you were just saying that bombs can awaken people to certain realities of life, but the way you worded it, it seemed like you were condoning literal bombings. And even if some positive things do come out of negative things, bombings are obviously still a negative thing, I think you'd agree... Ok, that was akwardly worded, but I think it made sense lol...
  3. You're wrong, I think. Its hate, not religion, that have caused this. ← I think you're right, Lerk, but the disgusting part is that many terrorists justify their hate through warped interpretations of religion. All this reminded me of an article from the satirical newspaper The Onion, which if you haven't seen before, you should check out at www.theonion.com. Anyways, it was a piece written in the days after 9-11-01, and after a little searching, I found it on the net... God Agrily Clarifies "Don't kill' rule NEW YORK—Responding to recent events on Earth, God, the omniscient creator-deity worshipped by billions of followers of various faiths for more than 6,000 years, angrily clarified His longtime stance against humans killing each other Monday. "Look, I don't know, maybe I haven't made myself completely clear, so for the record, here it is again," said the Lord, His divine face betraying visible emotion during a press conference near the site of the fallen Twin Towers. "Somehow, people keep coming up with the idea that I want them to kill their neighbor. Well, I don't. And to be honest, I'm really getting sick and tired of it. Get it straight. Not only do I not want anybody to kill anyone, but I specifically commanded you not to, in really simple terms that anybody ought to be able to understand." Worshipped by Christians, Jews, and Muslims alike, God said His name has been invoked countless times over the centuries as a reason to kill in what He called "an unending cycle of violence." "I don't care how holy somebody claims to be," God said. "If a person tells you it's My will that they kill someone, they're wrong. Got it? I don't care what religion you are, or who you think your enemy is, here it is one more time: No killing, in My name or anyone else's, ever again." The press conference came as a surprise to humankind, as God rarely intervenes in earthly affairs. As a matter of longstanding policy, He has traditionally left the task of interpreting His message and divine will to clerics, rabbis, priests, imams, and Biblical scholars. Theologians and laymen alike have been given the task of pondering His ineffable mysteries, deciding for themselves what to do as a matter of faith. His decision to manifest on the material plane was motivated by the deep sense of shock, outrage, and sorrow He felt over the Sept. 11 violence carried out in His name, and over its dire potential ramifications around the globe. "I tried to put it in the simplest possible terms for you people, so you'd get it straight, because I thought it was pretty important," said God, called Yahweh and Allah respectively in the Judaic and Muslim traditions. "I guess I figured I'd left no real room for confusion after putting it in a four-word sentence with one-syllable words, on the tablets I gave to Moses. How much more clear can I get?" "But somehow, it all gets twisted around and, next thing you know, somebody's spouting off some nonsense about, 'God says I have to kill this guy, God wants me to kill that guy, it's God's will,'" God continued. "It's not God's will, all right? News flash: 'God's will' equals 'Don't murder people.'" Worse yet, many of the worst violators claim that their actions are justified by passages in the Bible, Torah, and Qur'an. "To be honest, there's some contradictory stuff in there, okay?" God said. "So I can see how it could be pretty misleading. I admit it—My bad. I did My best to inspire them, but a lot of imperfect human agents have misinterpreted My message over the millennia. Frankly, much of the material that got in there is dogmatic, doctrinal bull****. I turn My head for a second and, suddenly, all this stuff about homosexuality gets into Leviticus, and everybody thinks it's God's will to kill gays. It absolutely drives Me up the wall." God praised the overwhelming majority of His Muslim followers as "wonderful, pious people," calling the perpetrators of the Sept. 11 attacks rare exceptions. "This whole medieval concept of the jihad, or holy war, had all but vanished from the Muslim world in, like, the 10th century, and with good reason," God said. "There's no such thing as a holy war, only unholy ones. The vast majority of Muslims in this world reject the murderous actions of these radical extremists, just like the vast majority of Christians in America are pissed off over those two bigots on The 700 Club." Continued God, "Read the book: 'Allah is kind, Allah is beautiful, Allah is merciful.' It goes on and on that way, page after page. But, no, some assholes have to come along and revive this stupid holy-war crap just to further their own hateful agenda. So now, everybody thinks Muslims are all murderous barbarians. Thanks, Taliban: 1,000 years of pan-Islamic cultural progress down the drain." God stressed that His remarks were not directed exclusively at Islamic extremists, but rather at anyone whose ideological zealotry overrides his or her ability to comprehend the core message of all world religions. "I don't care what faith you are, everybody's been making this same mistake since the dawn of time," God said. "The Muslims massacre the Hindus, the Hindus massacre the Muslims. The Buddhists, everybody massacres the Buddhists. The Jews, don't even get me started on the hardline, right-wing, Meir Kahane-loving Israeli nationalists, man. And the Christians? You people believe in a Messiah who says, 'Turn the other cheek,' but you've been killing everybody you can get your hands on since the Crusades." Growing increasingly wrathful, God continued: "Can't you people see? What are you, morons? There are a ton of different religious traditions out there, and different cultures worship Me in different ways. But the basic message is always the same: Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Buddhism, Shintoism... every religious belief system under the sun, they all say you're supposed to love your neighbors, folks! It's not that hard a concept to grasp." "Why would you think I'd want anything else? Humans don't need religion or God as an excuse to kill each other—you've been doing that without any help from Me since you were freaking apes!" God said. "The whole point of believing in God is to have a higher standard of behavior. How obvious can you get?" "I'm talking to all of you, here!" continued God, His voice rising to a shout. "Do you hear Me? I don't want you to kill anybody. I'm against it, across the board. How many times do I have to say it? Don't kill each other anymore—ever! I'm ****ing serious!" Upon completing His outburst, God fell silent, standing quietly at the podium for several moments. Then, witnesses reported, God's shoulders began to shake, and He wept.
  4. Substitute "is just a catchy saying" with "just has a catchy hook" and you'd have my description of "Switch." Hahaha Oh, me... I just hate that song so much! (don't bother replying back to me, I'm just an idiot)... ANYways, against my true opinions on this one, I voted for Will, so its all good. :2thumbs:
  5. Beatles, "Day Tripper" :jazzy: (clearly, turntables are the smiley that fit here)
  6. LoL I love the flow this topic took, I just caught up with it :haha: Let it be known that the only place I had ever heard of TinTin was in my middle school French text book... Maybe he's more popular outside the US?... Anyways, we were supposed to be able to read them, but of course, I never had any idea what was going on... Ummmm... Je suis un sandwich! Bonjouir! Lassaiz-faire! Charles de Gaulle! Merci bo coupe! Peppe le peu!... Ok, I'm done. :wiggle:
  7. The only person I've ever known (and I use the term "know" loosely lol) from Belguim.... mmmmmmm, waffles :1-say-yes:
  8. Lost is when you measure "success" in status, stature, and material goods Found is when you understand what truly matters in this life Or... Lost is :i_won_battle: Found is :hug:
  9. Lerk, I think you need to clarify this... or something. :hmm: Because if I'm interpreting what you wrote correctly, you think that detonation of bombs can, under certain circumstances, be a legitimate way for everyday people to bring attention to the various injustices in our societies and in our world. This could not be more absurd. First of all, your stipulation that these bombings not be harmful, mentally or physically, is more than a little bit puzzling. Bombs are a means of destruction. :wtf: That's what they do. Ummmm... I'm not sure even what I'm talking about or where my argument is going, because the whole topic seems so nonsensical lol... But in conclusion and in summary, if you want to point out the problems of the world, write a thought-provoking article, stage a protest, sign a petition, hold ridiculously coordinated rock concerts on all the continents of the world, whatever... but bombs? :thumbsdown: Ummmmm... ok, done! (this is officially my new way to end rambling posts)
  10. Nice review! :2thumbs: :2thumbs: :2thumbs: That's right, I gave you three double-thumbs ups for it... which is UNPRECEDENTED haha. Your assessments are pretty on-point tho, in my opinion.
  11. Diagnosis: Most of the changes were upgrades, noteably Kev's Super Mario Bro's 3 logo. :2thumbs: In general, though, I'm not a big fan of arbitrarily changing avatar pics, simply because it causes confusion. That's how ppl recognize you! If you have a noticeable signature pic like Kev or Jonny, it's one thing, but for guys like Fuq and Schnazz, for example, you seem like entirely new board members to me at first glace. :wtf: GOSH! Respect to Wes for pointing out this disturbing trend, and deciding to keep it simple (and referring to me as "Dr. ScyHigh," which is top-notch, if ridiculous... PhD in clickable smileys?). OK DONE! :1-say-yes:
  12. Not surprisingly, I choose together, as well. :2thumbs: But why isn't Ready Rock C an option? Or, for that matter, Ma$e? :hmm: Gosh.
  13. Has a deep appreciation of goats. :wtf:
  14. My theory: because list shows are incredibly easy to produce, and even if they ARE dumb, people will still watch em. :wiggle: Vh1 and "E" list shows rock my world, even tho they're all the same stupid thing: they endeavor to rank things that clearly never needed to be ranked or merit any thought of ranking, they seemingly put as little thought into the list as possible, and then they bring in C-list comedians and obscure, washed-up celebrities to make some painfully obvious jokes about each item on said list. BOOM! I'm hooked. 100 most awesomely bad songs, intense celebrity fueds, etc. etc.? I'm watching. You are too! :1-say-yes:
  15. The following is one of the various elementary school writing assignments of mine that I found while going through some papers yesterday. :wtf: The beginning in bold was the prompt, and the rest was straight from my 9 year-old mind (original spelling is intact)... Did you miss me? I've been gone! I just went on the greatest trip ever. I went to Russia. I stayed there for one month. Well I was there, Larry Bird kept begging me to play one-on-one with him, so after a while, I just took him to the hotel I was saying in. We talked about it, and I agreed to play. I won him with a last second jumper. I told him he needed to work on reebounding. Onother highlight of the trip was when I met the presedent. The only down side of that was I could not pernounce his name. Oh, By the way, about Larry, He followed me on the plane. I also went to some magnifesent beaches. I walked around the beaches in the mourning so I saw the sunset. Ones, I was going out in the tide, and I started to drown. But luckley, the lifegaurds saved me. I was in too many newspapers and on the news. So I left on the first plane I could catch. I went to Hawii for a day. I got some suveneers, and I went home. Before that I hung out with Tom Cruise but that wasn't emportent. Thats all!
  16. I'm even more pumped about this idea after reading these last posts. :1-eek: Accents are awesome. This can't be emphasized enough. Holy crap, soooooo many accents. How about we have a segment where we just make people from different countries and regions read... setup instructions for a computer or something? I would listen.
  17. All this serves as proof: America is a decidedly silly and over-sensitive place when it comes to issues of race. But this over-sensitivity stems from a massively screwed up past. And presently, our nation as a whole is still milesssssss away from being "colorblind." Can we somehow just wipe the slate clean and start over? It doesn't work that way, does it... Did that make any sense? Oh well... Anyways I never saw the promos or the awards so I can't make too many specific comments lol
  18. I have absolutely nothing to add. I just wanted to say that this is the greatest thread ever. :haha: Oh, Jonny!
  19. Ma$e is the greatest lyricist of all-time.
  20. Hahhahahaaha too accurate. Ah well... welcome aboard, anyways! :2thumbs:
  21. Whoa, The Twilight Zone? What's this track? Or are you referring to "Then She Bit Me" ? ← yeah... DUMB scy! he mispelled a lot of songs he mentioned.... In This Corner should be And In This Corner..... One of those Days should be Just One of those Days. some1 hasn't been listening 2 their share of JJFP cd's lately :shakehead: :mad: :wtf: :dontdothat: ← Oh boy! Here come Schnazz & Wes, the insignificant details police! :wiggle: My bad(s) lol
  22. Some of you noticed that I was away from the forum for a bit. Where was I? This is irrelevant. All that matters is that I have pictures. And this one in particular needed to be shared...
  23. I'm back, weeeeeeeeeeeeee! :pony: I'd love to do the segment where I just review one JJFP track every show. Sign me up for that. :wiggle: We should divide up the segments and get recording. :2thumbs:
  24. posts approximately 1.5 times a day, just like yours truly :pony:
  25. I'll break my opinion down like this: Personally, I'd like to see a healthy mix of both the lighter, fun side of Will :woot: and the more serious, contemplative side of Will :smart: but mostly, I just want quality, on whatever side of the spectrum he decides to make a track. And in my opinion, FP has done a pretty good job at achieving that blend (for the most part, at least). Couple other random thoughts I have in regards to the theme of this thread (or loosely connected to it, anyways)... 1. Non-serious tracks aren't inherantly dumb. I love songs like "Ya'll Know," "Brand New Funk," "The Reverand," "The Twilight Zone," and "Will 2k," and I will fight anyone who calls them dumb to the death. :wtf: They're not supposed to be insightful, they just are what they are. 2. I never liked when Will tried to make songs that were like stand-up comedy acts in rhyme. :thumbsdown: That's one type of mode I'd never like Will to drift back into. There are some tracks where Will just tried too hard to be the clown prince of rap, in my opinion (most of them are on "In This Corner..."). I always thought Will was funny, but I found that more in his subtler tracks, ones that weren't just outrageous for outrageousness sake, like "Parents..." and "One of Those Days." Ok, I'm done now, I think. :wave:
