    The odds a Top 100 country song will refer to alcohol are 1 in 5. The odds one of these songs will contain a reference to “mama” are 1 in 7.14. The odds one will contain a reference to the word “train” are 1 in 11.11 and the odds one will contain a reference to the word “prison” are 1 in 33.33. Least surprising, the odds one of the songs will contain a reference to tears or crying are 1 in 3.23.

    AmericaBlog ^ | July 24, 2015 | Holly Blackler
    Pop stars are definitely not shy about taking sides in American politics, as we saw when artists such as Madonna, Cher, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Beyonce all rallied behind President Obama in his respective campaigns. On their own, singers are just voters. They might not know a whole lot about politics, and you might not care what they think. But a lot of people, especially young people, do. And young people matter. The 2014 midterms saw the lowest youth turnout in 70 years, contributing to sweeping Republican victories a few short years after the youth vote helped President Obama...

    Donald Trump has become public enemy number one in the rap world and now Jeezy is chiming in. Trump pissed a lot of people off during a recent press conference when he claimed that Mexican immigrants entering the United States are criminals. “The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems,” said Trump. “It’s true, and there are the best and the finest. When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re...

    It was in the county of Los Angeles, California. It was Saturday Feb. 7, 2015. At 12:12 P.M. the call came in. ESPY’s future hero then known as Bruce Jenner had been courageously driving along the Pacific Coast Highway at just over 46 mph casually smoking a cigarette like an old movie hero. He was apparently unaware of the danger ahead where some vehicles were stopping at a traffic light. ESPY’s future hero didn’t have to worry. The big Cadillac SUV he was driving would protect ESPY’s hero from injury when he couldn’t stop fast enough to avoid hitting the...

    Variety ^ | July 10, 2015 | Ted Johnson, senior editor
    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Friday gave what one attendee described as a quintessential Trump speech before a group of Hollywood conservatives — brash, self assured, and plenty of humor. Trump’s appearance before Friends of Abe — a fellowship of showbiz right-of-center professionals — was met with protests outside the Luxe Hotel in Brentwood over remarks he has made about Mexican immigrants. Chanting “Donald Trump has got to go” in English and Spanish, the protesters drew occasional honks from passing cars on Sunset Boulevard, with a heavy presence of Los Angeles Police Department officers on watch. But Trump told...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)It’s true. Black America spends a good amount of time discussing race, thinking about race, experiencing race, and living through the trauma these conversations and incidents based on race bring. No surprise there — our Black and Brown skin has for so long bound us to a contentious relationship with a country that created a system of privileges and rules that disenfranchise and oppress minorities. That’s true, too. And although conversations about race have dominated media and social media, although Black and Brown people are still being unjustly treated or killed, and although a gunman stormed a historically Black church...

The event is scheduled for 7:30 PM on Friday at the Luxe Sunset Blvd Hotel in Brentwood, the invite says. The most controversial of the ever-expanding pack of GOP White House hopefuls is the latest paying a visit to the group. Other Republican contenders already have paid a call, but, of course, Carly Fiorina, Rand Paul and Mike Huckabee have not made headlines saying Mexico is sending its drug users and rapists across the border...

    An imprisoned hip hop artist currently serving a 10-year sentence in a California state penitentiary released a track decrying the prevalence of state violence against black communities. The song, 28 Hours, by Richie Reseda, was co-released by Black Lives Matter and Los Angeles-based art collective G.R.E.E.D.Y. City last month. With lyrics that reference the deaths of Renisha McBride, Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, and others, the song represents a passionate, politically charged condemnation of police violence and mass incarceration. “Suicide, genocide at the same time,” sings Reseda. “No one’s on my side so I throw up gang signs.

Fortunately, it was recorded on a smart phone, so you can enjoy it this Independence Day. Gabrielle Dube, an intern for the event, posted it with this description: “After Lee Greenwood’s performance during the intermission, he met with the Military Choir to take pictures and it sparked an impromptu a cappella version of ‘God Bless the USA.’ Amazing!”

Trump announced his candidacy a couple weeks ago at the Trump Tower in NYC and immediately outed himself as a massive bigot. "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending the best,” he told supporters. “They're not sending you, they're sending people that have lots of problems and they're bringing those problems. They're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime. They're rapists and some, I assume, are good people, but I speak to...

    Comedian Jim Jefferies has been making a bit of a splash in the United States by putting together a misleading rant against the right to bear arms in the U.S.  Jefferies does not want women to have guns.  He says that he does not want anyone to have guns, but then he is much bigger and stronger than most women, so perhaps he does not mind being disarmed, as long as women are disarmed as well.  A general prohibition on guns always favors those who are bigger, stronger and younger. Jefferies does not just rant about guns, he rants...

Thanks to Shawn and the anti-social activities his crew of teens/adults engaged in, including selling highly addictive drugs to his neighbors and shooting his competitors from the nearby Tompkins and Lafayette Houses, hundreds of thousands of dollars in police overtime were generated while investigating the murders, shootings and armed robberies resulting from the drug activity Shawn proudly raps about.

McGowan, known for her contribution to independent films, went ballistic over the false quote, calling Cruz a "blight on the soul of humanity" and told him to "get off of my planet." According to Snopes, an anti-conservative group claimed that several conservative politicians, including Cruz, allegedly defended Duggar after he admitted to molesting underage girls. The group published an Internet meme falsely claiming Cruz said: "While there may have been an age difference, Josh Duggar's transgressions are...

On their return home, several pilots were shot down by the Luftwaffe, while many of those escaping were killed. These are the histories of bravery clashing with ideologies the like of Hitler.

Television will be a bit less joyless when night owls start their shifts with the aging baby retiring, although many insomniacs won’t even notice. The Late Show’s cultural impact is minimal enough that Chevy Chase wonders what he did wrong. The past makes the present disappointing: it’s hard to explain to people born after Letterman began manning this slot that he created a most inventive approach to...

    Gurr test-driving an early prototype of his Autopia vehicle in 1955.George Clooney may get top billing in his new film, Tomorrowland, but design visionary Gurr is the real star.In his 27 years as a Disney Imagineer, Bob Gurr was known for doing the impossible: He designed a submarine fleet, the cars of Autopia, and the Monorail that soars above the park on a single beam. With the opening of Tomorrowland in 1955, Gurr shaped a vision of the future (1986 to be exact) that still feels out of reach. Six decades after Gurr began creating ride vehicles for the theme...

    In case you missed it, B.B. King, one of the best of the original Blues players ever, passed on. Of course, when we walk down the road into the fever swamps of Leftism, in this case, the always unhinged and insane Salon, we get B.B. King and our blatant racial revisionism: The South still denies the roots of “America’s music” Southern states celebrating “America’s music” should remember the direct line between our original sin & the blues We all have to go sometime. And hopefully, B. B. King was able to reflect in his twilight years that he had lived...

    America has lost a national treasure: B. B. King, whose world-weary voice and wailing guitar lifted him from the cotton fields of Mississippi to a global stage and the apex of American blues, died Thursday in Las Vegas. He was 89. Mr. King married country blues to big-city rhythms and created a sound instantly recognizable to millions: a stinging guitar with a shimmering vibrato, notes that coiled and leapt like an animal, and a voice that groaned and bent with the weight of lust, longing and lost love. “I wanted to connect my guitar to human emotions,” Mr. King said...

    (AUDIO-AT-LINK) In a sly way, Prince has always been a political artist. Like Marcel Duchamp upending the art world with his readymades, he stormed the pop scene courting controversy, but always with a wink. Like Bob Dylan throwing down signs in the video for "Subterranean Homesick Blues," he sent out messages – some of them explicit, as in his anti-nuclear plea "Ronnie Talk To Russia" and the more recent call to the streets, "MARZ" – but scrambled them in ways that made them both poetic and prophetic. Like Jimi Hendrix, he's made bold statements within a veil of feedback and...
  • Ted Cruz’s Gay Hosts Are Shunned, While Major Cult Leader Is Among Largest Donors To Broadway Cares

    Certain biases remain acceptable. There’s a full-fledged boycott against two gay New York City hoteliers who recently hosted an event in their home for Republican presidential candidate Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas). How would the media react if a Republican business owner hosted an event for a gay politician – and mainstream Republican-friendly organizations boycotted them as a result? There would rightfully be outrage. The two gay hotel owners have been attacked and harmed financially – despite their long history as activists and philanthropists – for hosting a discussion with Cruz. (It wasn’t even a fundraiser.) This is the liberal thought...

    I saw The Doobie Brothers and Don Felder (Eagles) last night and they still sound great. Eagles are my all-time favorite. I never get tired of listening to them. I'm a believer in rock keeping us young!
