Saturday Seven (7 Things I'm Really Tired Of)

1. Auto Tune
It's hard enough you have rappers using it (Kanye West, Snoop Dogg) but now we have singers using it who don't really need it (Mary, Mary).

2. "Hot Ghetto Mess"
I am tired of people sending me emails with these ugly photos of fat people doing bizzarre things. This is so not funny anymore.

3. Beefs
Blogger beefs, beefs between rappers, and now... beefs between R&B Divas (Beyonce & Etta James... Beyonce & Aretha Franklin).

4. Rush Limbaugh
Hatin' from the sidelines and getting his numbskull listeners in a froth about the stimulus bill... so much so that they have now been calling in their senators and represenatives and pressuring them to vote against it. Will you get over it man? Your party lost, your candidate lost. He's your president too. How can you call yourself a patriot and publicly wish for your president to fail? I didn't agree with a lot that President Bush did but, I never wished for him to fail. If he fails, the government fails and thus, all of us within it fails. Get a grip Rush. Go somewhere, sit down, and shut up (as my late grandmother would say)!

5. Chain Emails
I want people to please to stop sending me emails that threaten me with bad luck or disaster if I don't forward it to 12 more unlucky people. I'm trying to work, how about you?

6. The Recession
It's just beginning and I'm already tired of it!

7. Winter
Nuff said.

ROFL. Yeah, I'm with ya on this, bro. Limbaugh's crackhead self...can't stand his hateful mouth. It's supposed to be in the 50s down here this weekend, hope ya get some warmth up there too. Enjoy your weekend!

I must co-sign on each & every one of these, Brotha. It's almost like you've been visiting my mind & cleaning out the cobwebs w/ this post.

Hot Ghetto Mess. I get it. Some folks have NO clue, can't BUY a clue, and wouldn't recognize a clue if it wore a lime-green PIMP suit! We get it! Enuff already!

And what's with those emails demanding that I forward the same msg to a gang of other people? Only the truly superstitious & spiritually WEAK will believe their blessings or lack of them will be determined by a freakin' floating email! The Creator don't play that, so... stop the madness!

As far as the beefs: w/ rappers it's tired, it's boring, but it's almost expected. but when grown-azz-been-on-the-planet-for-more-than-half-a-century-women start talking smack about Beyonce or any YOUNGER entertainer, it reeks of a deeply pathetic diva-phobic insecurity that's not only RIDIC but totally classless!

Reality check! Reality check!

Yes, Brotha. Color me TIRED of this ish too!


The F$%K it List said...

Yes I agree with all of these exept the beef with Beyonce. I think that is just plain old funny! But Beef in general is so 1992

Strongblkwmn said...

Damn, it's like you were reading my mind!

What the hell is Etta James doing starting any sort of beef? Come on Etta!

Those damned chain emails make me sick and all that hot ghetto mess crap is annoying.

Limbaugh needs to pop a pill and shut the hell up.

Angie B. said...

Keith, you are a trip-ROFL...but I agree with you on all seven of these things!

Sunflower said...

I love your "Saturday Seven" They are always thoughtful and funny.

Toni said...

You're in my head Keith..I'm soo tired of all seven of those things!

James Perkins said...

Beyonce and Etta James is particulary amusing....Unbelievable.

Simon Bastion said...

Another Good Post!

Grover Tha Playboy said...

Rush Limbaugh is definitely one of the most over-rated clowns on the airwaves today!

Vanessa said...

Keith, you are too funny with these "Saturday Sevens"...I feel you on all of them though.lololol.

Lisa said...

I hate Auto tune too, but I love Kanye West's use of it. I agree that real Singers shouldn't be using it. It's for Rappers who can't sing.

And Beef?? I didn't know Beyonce and Aretha Franklin had beef.

Halo said...

Hi Keith...I feel you on all seven!

Keith said...

@Lisa- Beyonce refferred to Tina Turner as the "Queen" of Rock and Soul at last years American Music awards and Aretha Franklin had a hissy fit over someone else being refferred to as the queen. See how silly this all gets.

Tate 2 said...

Hey Brother Keith, Great Post..I love the "Saturday Seven" I particularly love this one..I'm sick of the same seven things.

Jazzy said...

Funny post bruh, funny as hell.

Swaggie said...

I hate Auto tune too...That's why I'm not feelin Kanye West's new CD at all. I didn't dig Snoop Dogg's use of it either. I do however like "It's the God in me " by Mary
Mary..Go figure!

Captain Jack said...

I despise "Hot Ghetto Mess " and Chain E-mails and Chain Letters.

I didn't know Bloggers had beef,
that's funny.

The Urban Perspective said...

1000% agree with your Limbaugh assessment.
I feel u too on the other points, especially the chain mail LOL!!

Anonymous said...

hey I hate those chain letters too...but what about the Godly ones, that you hate to erase.....(blink blink)

Keith said...

@Oyin- Those are the ones I'm talking about.

Correction Keith:

Beyonce introduced Tina Turner as "The Queen" period and I actually think THAT was the problem. Aretha Franklin has always been known as "The Queen of Soul" and Beyonce didn't make any distinction in her introduction. What Beyonce should have done was introduce Tina as "The Queen of Rock 'n' Roll" and then, Aretha wouldn't have had a problem with it.

Beyonce is young and she has a lot to learn about this kinda stuff. And, before you start feeling too sorry for her, remember that she is a "diva in training" herself. Twenty years from now (if we're not asking ourselves, "Beyonce who?"), she will be doing the same thing to some up and coming young "diva in training" herself. That's just how the game is played.

I guess it's fair to say that Aretha didn't have to make such a big deal out it. At the same time, let's try to remember that Aretha had to earn the respect that she has been given over the years and it was not handed to her on a silver platter. Beyonce needs to act like she knows that because she will be where Aretha is one day, if she's lucky!

As for the beef regarding Beyonce and Etta James, I do think that the invitation to sing "At Last" should have been extended to Etta James first and again, out of respect. Etta is still very much alive and well and there was no reason in the world why she shouldn't have been asked to sing the song that SHE made famous.

However (and this might surprise you), unless Barack Obama made a personal request for Beyonce to sing the song, I blame the people who did the planning for the inauguration ball. So, this time, it wasn't Beyonce's fault. She just got caught in the middle of a bad judgement call on the part of the inauguration planners. If you ask me, "they" owe Etta James an apology and I'll give Beyonce a pass on this one.

Lovebabz said...

LOL! I am with matter how anyone explains that Beyonce and Aretha, Beyonce and Etta James it is all so tiring and has nothing to do with the everyday comings and goings of folks!

I am however super tired of WINTER...I live in CT and it has been one storm after another. The temps have not peaked above freezing (although today they did and it gave me hope for Spring) and I fractured my foot falling on my walkway because of all the ice!

And thanks so much for all the kind comments you leave over on my blog! Crimson & Cream baby! OO-OOP!

I am with you on all 7 points! and if I thought about it I could add 7more...LOL!

clnmike said...

Cosign everything especially 1,4.

Blu Jewel said...

Keith, I'm so feeling you on this. You've mentioned almost all the same things that get on my nerves too. Let me add a couple more...

women with over-sized, droopy breasts in tops that DONT compliment them

people who talk or their cells or txt while in the company of others during dinner

grown men dressed like teenage boys

women who thrive off the attention of teenage boys...being a MILF is one thing; acting on it is another

Angel said...

Keith LOL do bloggers have beef? LOL that IS hilarious...Poor Beyonce..those other women should be grown enough to get over it.

Im getting tired of the cold especially all that snow we had and the Chain emails, I just delete without reading so i dont get to the part where it says forward or die.

Hope you are well :)

Hey Shae! said...
