MTV2 – Most Controversial Videos

Music Outkast (Andre 3000) – "Hey Ya"

Happy Thanksgiving.

Late last night on MTV2, they played a few hours of "The Most Controversial Videos". It was previously banned videos or the uncensored versions of other videos. And when they say uncensored, they meant it – all cuss words, sexual images, exposed body parts, etc.

Britney Spears "One More Time" was nothing compared to everyone else.

They showed Madonna’s "Justify My Love." The one that was banned from MTV. I was thinking it had a lot of "obscene" things in it, but what the hell? There was hardly anything! It was basically like her making out with some chick with a fake moustache and some good looking guy watching. Big deal. I thought there was gonna be something like her face in someone’s crotch, but nope. Nothing like that. I woulda thought "Slave 4 U" by Britney would be considered more controversial. I got done watching the video and was like "That’s it!? This is what I’ve been waiting for years to see?" Well, at least I got to see it and her "What It Feels Like for a Girl" video again where she goes around killing everyone.

It’s almost weird whenever see I "Closer" by Nine Inch Nails without the "Scene Missing" parts ‘cuz I’m too used to it like that.

The poop flicking/eating at the end of Bloodhound Gang’s "The Bad Touch" was just gross. Haha.

Seeing the whole, unedited video of Eminem’s "Stan" makes it make a lot more sense.

I love Bjork and didn’t even think she was crazy for wearing that goose dress (I think it’s cute!), but the back piercings with pearls thing… Well, I wouldn’t do it. I’ll just leave it at that. But I love her nonetheless.

It’s too bad I couldn’t have really enjoyed the "Smack My Bitch Up" video by The Prodigy the way it was intended because everyone already ruined the ending! Even Madonna (their boss) was talking about how good it was on camera in an interview and ruins it! Gah.

I’m excited. The violet contact lenses I ordered should be coming in about a week or less. Woo Hoo! I’ve been wanting these since elementary school. And now they will be Miiiiineeee mwuhaha. My vision is horrible, which I’ve realized for a while. Today I find out from my boss that I’m "legally" blind. ‘Cuz my number is really bad and he said his relative had the same as me and got a handicapped parking space b/c of it. Hmmmmmm should I do that? I’m scared I will go fully blind one day! That would suck 😥

I’m lame and I didn’t go to Lennex today because I’m totally broke. I really wanted to, though. I need to go to Soundgarden soon and sell some CDs.

A Dope Night.

Music DJ Shadow "Stem/Long Stem"

Tonight was so cool, man. Went to the United Tour II at Nation in DC with my friend Joyce. All the bands were great. It’s so cool to see Imbue playing to more and more new people. They were great. I love their new lineup a lot. Steve (ex-Fur) and Rod (ex-Ice Station Zero) are now in the band. They are tiiiiiight. And of course I love Ric and Tim. Dope was better than ever. I saw ’em a few years ago and thought they were cool but tonight they were Outstanding. So much energy. They have gotten even better with time. And of course Pigface was amazing. Even more guests up there tonight. There was so many guests from artists in other bands that they were having a lot of technical difficulties due to the club’s system barely being able to handle them! And the singer of Pitchshifter got up there and did "Genius." That was niiiiice. I still wanna pick up Voodou’s CD cuz I like what Michelle, their singer does up on stage with Pigface… By the end of the night (we left before Pigface’s long set had even ended due to Joyce and I having to work early tomorrow morning… oops, I shouldn’t be online now should I?) I kept crossing paths with Edzel from Dope and he was chillin’ in the dance room area of the club. So I decided to go ahead and talk to him and give him a Skitzo Calypso demo. He was really nice and cool about it and said he’d give it a listen. Well it’s a good thing I did give him one ‘cuz Joyce said in their DVD he says for bands to please give him a demo. So it doesn’t hurt to try, right?!

Today was way too windy for my liking. I mean it was just insane!

I am interesting in hearing more of the new P!nk album. I know she’s working lyrically with of course Linda Perry again but also Tim Armstrong of Rancid and she does a cool song with Peaches! Apparantly Britney Spears had asked Peaches to work with her first and Peaches said no! But she said yes to Pink. Britney definitely is not that innocent if she’s been listening to Peaches, if ya know what I’m saying. I keed, I keed!

Well, it’s beyond bed time for me…
