More ranting about corporate bullshit and of course the theme of the week...water.
I'm going to link to The Assimilate Negro for this next rant. I dig this guy’s site, he's well written and his ideas are coherent. Plus he seems like he's been around the block, the industry and life so it's a good read. I don't like this video though. Again we have a multi billion dollar industry promoting things that you just don't need. Firstly Coke's water is tap water. Aquafina? Coke? Yep...this is vitamin tap water folks. You know...for those poor ghetto kids that look up to 50cent as a role model, a career choice. Those folks who were disadvantaged back in the 50's and are still disadvantaged now. So coke contacts 50 and 50 says "Fuck yeah...I'm a rich mother fucker with diamonds all up in my face and a grill and an entourage and all sorts of other rich bitch shit. I would gladly promote your product." So this dude makes his millions on the sponsorship deal. Never mind the fact that he looks like a goof bouncing around in front of an orchestra. Any real musician (classical) with a sense of integrity would have stabbed Mr. "you can't play that thing" violinist in the eye with his bow. I mean shit...metallica was bad enough never mind this. 50 get's a black eye from me for promoting this crap.
Someone should slap a "corporate whore" bumper sticker on his ride just to make a point.
