Here’s an excerpt:

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 72,000 times in 2013. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 3 days for that many people to see it.

2013 Sit The Fuck Down List – The Music Remix

December 31, 2013

This blogs says almost exactly what I had on my mind.

Scott Woods Makes Lists

Here are ten music industry folks who, for one reason or another over the past year, need to go put their heads down on their desks until they’re called on. Sit the fuck down, yo.

1) Chris Brown
In all fairness, he’s on my list every year. What’s most jaw-dropping about this idiot is that he’s on my lists every year for the same fucking reason: Chris Brown can’t keep his hands to himself. Fuck anger management classes: anger is his manager.

2) Kanye West
This dude spent most of 2013 laying the seeds for a really heavy fall yet to be determined. The problem is that he’ll have one of those soft, Michael Jackson falls: being so rich you don’t feel the fall. But make no mistake, it’s coming. He’s been popping crazy pills and chasing them down with 40 ounces of grape Insaneade all year. And no good can…

Conservative Memes Comparing Phil Robertson’s Bigotry with Miley Cyrus’s Twerking

December 22, 2013

Recently, Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson made comments many find offensive. For those of you unfamiliar with Duck Dynasty, it’s a reality show featuring a family who gained riches from creating products for duck hunters. Based in West Monroe, Louisiana, the viewers see a family were the males sport long beards.

In a recent GQ interview, the interviewer asked Phil Robertson what does he consider sinful.

Phil answered this, “Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men.”

Also, these are his views on black people before civil rights: “I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person. Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I’m with the blacks, because we’re white trash. We’re going across the field…. They’re singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, ‘I tell you what: These doggone white people’—not a word!… Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues.”

Views like this earned Phil a suspension from A&E, the cable network broadcasting Duck Dynasty.

I’m sure many readers were already aware of the story I just described. Yet, here’s something amusing I later saw on Facebook. Conservatives are now posting memes comparing Phil Robertson’s comments to Miley Cyrus’s twerking. I guess twerking is just as harmful as a guy aiming obvious bigotry towards other people. If one can’t spot the bigotry in Phil’s words, you are a goddamned idiot who probably still believes in George Dubya Bush’s weapons of mass destruction. Just like a female friend pointed out, Miley Cyrus did not go around using the bible to condemn other people. Yet, here are the memes comparing Phil Robertson’s views with Miley Cyrus’s twerking.
