Just a bunch of random thoughts caused by overdosing on the media and chaos in Detroit

This morning while I was on my way to work listening to some talk radio my brain began to slowly swell and I felt a headache coming on. And then I thought about it, everytime I am listening to talk radio this same things happen. I have concluded that I am overdosing on media. Yes people anything is bad for you if you don't take it in moderation. I admit it...I am a media junkie. So I decided to take an entire week without all the tv,radio,blogs,magazines,etc...Yeah so that was too hard so here, you are a witness to my relapse.

Okay so first thing.

Now I have to admit lately I haven't been such a fan of 50 Cent's music lately. I mean I always will respect him as a business man but I don't know something about his music just hasn't been reaching me lately. It's funny how quickly things change because after hearing his recently released album , Before I Self Destruct, I have jumped back on the 50 Cent train. It's not just the fact that it reminded me so much of his first cd, back when his lyrics were gritty, rugged, and screaming of the streets, but it was also the fact that you got two movies came with it. He comes hard again with his killer hooks, and brings back some of his most famous catch phrases. For the past two days evey five seconds one of my favorite tracks would play over and over again" Have a baby by me baby, be a millionare". There was one that had the same title as the cd which was a dramatic portrayl of a young street ball player turned assasin (50 cent) and his demise. The other was a documentary about the life and death of hip hop legend Jam Master Jay. It raises dangerous questions about who really killed him and what people who were there that night know that they aren't saying. I don't want to give you too much detail about either of these movies because they are both a must see!!!

As I mentioned before I was listening to talk radio on the way to work, which partially caused my media overdose, and the topic was Chris Brown and Rihanna once again. I thought the situation had pretty much died down until the interviews on Good Morning America and MTV, so here we go again down the yellow brick road. Well I was kind of upset because once again there were women on air live defending Chris once again and trying to make Rihanna seem like the villian. It's sad. People need to realize how serious an issue domestic violence is and if we keep victimizing the assailants then we condone this violence. Be more aware of what your opiniions really say about yourself. If a woman can't confront a man about his wrong doings without him getting physically violent than he is not a man. Bottom line.

And while we are on the subject of violence I want to end this note on a serious tip. There is a serious crime wave going on in this world but it's hitting closer to home in my hometown of Detroit. In the last month three women have come up missing, one found dead, there were two murder suicides, and a father made his 15 year old son strip naked in the middle of the street and then shot him execution style. There is a serious problem going on and no one seems to know how to solve it. Some people say we just all need to love each other but mankind is obviously incapable of doing that. Some people say it's rap music and the media that causes this violence but that's just another cope out. I think it's the lack of respect for the law and God's most precious creation. If police would become protectors instead of enforcers and if people understood the value of life then maybe this world would have a chance.  Respect eachother. Realize that a human life is more precious than your reputation or any material thing.
