In defense of M.I.A., flipping the bird at the Superbowl Halftime show…

For the past couple of days since Superbowl Sunday, the internet has been outraged by M.I.A. flipping the bird at the camera during her performance at Halftime with Madonna. Why is everyone mad? Basically, because she’s on a huge sporting event and it’s on public national TV, NBC, a family friendly station.

A lot of people today, don’t know who M.I.A. is, because she released records independently with her own label. She’s not a major label artist, she was never mainstream until Madonna had her as a special guest duet. The internet is acting like what M.I.A. did is wrong and what she did is evil. She might even get fined for it and all that stuff.

What people fail to understand about M.I.A., is that her performances has always been crazy and intense. She loves to move around on stage and makes movements with her hands a lot. That’s the way she always performed. Watch some of her live performances in youtube if you see what I mean.

I believe what she did at the Superbowl was an accident. She didn’t mean what she did and wasn’t realizing what she was doing. She was just having too much fun and it came out of nowhere. I’m sure she has done this at her concerts from her tours many times, flipping the bird at the audience. Performers do this stuff all the time on stage. Flipping the bird to the audience is most popular with the metal genre, but rappers do it too. That’s what M.I.A. is, a rapper.

If a male rapper was performing the Superbowl and if he flipped the bird to the camera, then the people wouldn’t care. They would think it’s alright, people are mad at M.I.A. for it because she’s a woman.

On top of all this, M.I.A. is one of my favorite artists. I absolutely love her music. Her music is phenomenal, and I adore her. I’m always watching her live performances in youtube and buying her albums. I love the messages she sends with her songs. She’s very political, she’s an activist, and most of her songs are protest songs. I love her two singles, “Paper Planes” and “Born Free”. She’s just a great artist.

What she did on the Superbowl maybe bad, but whatever it takes for her to get more recognition in her music, more power to her. She just became a mainstream artist because of that. Madonna helped her get more recognition.

I didn’t find what she did a big deal ’cause a lot of musicians can be crazy like that sometimes. That’s how most of them are. A lot of people think what she did, she’s saying, “fuck you” to everyone, no not all. Artists flip the bird ’cause they do it in a good way, it entertains the fans. Ever been to a rap concert or a metal concert where the star flips the bird and the fans go crazy? It happens.

M.I.A. shouldn’t get fined for it ’cause she didn’t do anything wrong, in my opinion. She doesn’t owe Madonna an apology ’cause over the years, I’m sure she’s dealt with crazy stuff like that in the past. I’m sure she wouldn’t care.


How about that Eli Manning, hey???

The Superbowl last night was great. I just got a little more respect for Eli, saving the day, when the Giants came close to losing.

Now to hit the gym this afternoon and burn off all the Superbowl cheat meals. Yep, I ate quite a bit. I had cheese, pepperoni & crackers for snacking, a few slices of pizza, and then a hot fudge sundae after. There was a little Superbowl party with family members.

Hope you all enjoyed yourself last night too.


Superbowl Sunday is the perfect day to pig out…

While my fitness nutrition is mostly healthy, it is not that perfectly healthy. It’s not like, I’m ever going to have a professional looking bodybuilder physique, anyway, so my meals aren’t that 100% strict. I do eat mostly healthy for the most part. I just had to get in decent shape so to do that, I had to change my nutrition to healthier like I always say.

Pretty much the only junk food I would touch are pizza, ice cream, chinese food and sometimes Mexican food like tacos/buritos. Sometimes fast food too. I gave up everything else like soda, potato chips, sugary snacks, etc.  Again, you can’t ignore junk food completely, it’s still okay to have like once or twice a week. Just don’t over do it. On the weekends, I’ll eat whatever I want, and I’ll never lose the muscle and the six pack.

So tomorrow on Superbowl Sunday, I’m planning to eat whatever’s on the table. I’ve been eating good most of this week anyway so I deserve a day off of the healthy nutrition. What am I doing for the Superbowl? Staying home watching the game. Possibly having a little party with some people coming over. So there’s definitely gonna be all kinds of food and stuff.

Looking forward to the game and of course, I want the Giants to win. I always root for our home NY team. GO GIANTS!!!


Report: Joe Francis of “Girls Gone Wild” fame wants to block Madonna’s new song…

Madonna is planning to perform one of her new songs on her upcoming new album at this Sunday’s Superbowl game, a song called, “Girls Gone Wild”, but Joe Francis happens to own the trademark for his business name. He sent her a, “cease and desist letter”, trying to stop her from playing the song.

Read the full story, here.

Oh give me, a fucking break. I think Madonna, legally has the right to use the song, so she’s safe. There are plenty of songwriters and musicians from the past who used the same title.

If he’s going to sue Madonna, then he may as well sue country singer, Travis Tritt.


Tim Tebow makes me hope the Denver Broncos make the Superbowl this year…

I haven’t been following NFL much this year as much as I did last year, but I ended up watching the last Bronco’s game over the weekend and I was very impressed with it. That was one of the best games I’ve seen in years. Especially the way Tebow ended it, quite amazing. I missed it the last time he did that incredible run, but I caught his second one, the Broncos vs. the Steelers.

People online have been having mixed opinions on what he did. Some liked it and some didn’t. I thought that was pretty incredible running. He has pretty amazing cardio. He must be doing a lot of running at home.

After seeing that one game, makes me want to follow the rest of the Broncos games to see if they make the Superbowl. I’m really rooting for the Broncos now. Incredible stuff. Like Tebow or not, you’re looking at a future Hall of Famer legend here. Tebow’s 80 yard touchdown pass, will be a historic thing, no matter what you think of it.



Report: Madonna confirmed to perform during Superbowl halftime, she will perform with Cirque Du Soleil…

NBC announced their performer for this year’s Halftime Superbowl gig. Last year it was the Black Eyed Peas, this year it’s going to be none other than Madonna, the Queen of Pop. This pop legend and Rock n’ roll Hall of Famer will be performing with the entertainment act, Cirque Du Soleil.

More on the story, here.

I don’t think Madonna has ever performed the Superbowl before, and I guess it’s her time. I’m not much of a Madonna fan, though, I only liked her stuff from the 80’s. This is better than the Black Eyed Peas, I can deal with Madonna than any other pop act. She would be enjoyable and entertaining. I’m sure she’s gonna do a medley mix of all her hits over the years.


Thought: The Superbowl last night…

Yes, I watched the Superbowl last night. I’m glad the Packers didn’t let the Steelers win. Everyone thought the Steelers were going to get it, no matter what, but everyone thought wrong. The Packers made the Steelers look like sissies last night. It was a pretty good game. Not the best game ever played, but I wished they could have played better to make it more fun.

As far as the music goes, oh my god! What an embarrassment! Cristina Aguilera fucking up the National Anthem, the same with that Glee chic who did America the Beautiful. Both messed up. Also, the Black Eyed Peas was one of the worst performances I have ever seen. How can they go from the Who from last year to the Black Eyed Peas? Black Eyed Peas were dressed as robots from Star Trek. What the hell was that light thing Fergie was wearing? Also, Fergie can’t sing for shit. It was auto-tune and lip syncing. Plus, she looked terrible. Even Slash couldn’t save it. I didn’t even watch the whole Half Time performance. Usually I do stick through the whole Half Time musical act, but for the first time in a long time, I didn’t watch this half time. Only watched a little bit, and I’m like, “Fuck this half time shit, I’m going on the computer until the game comes back on”. Hope they get a better musical act for next year, something that everyone cares to see ’cause nobody cares for the Black Eyed Peas. I hate that group.

As far as the commercials goes, there were only two commercials that I liked. “The Super 8” footage and the “Captain America” trailer, those two were cool. Both trailers were exclusively shown during the Superbowl, they weren’t shown anywhere else. I’m very excited for both movies as I will see both “Super 8” and “Captain America” in theater when they come out.

Here they are.


Brock doesn’t agree with the Black Eyed Peas performing halftime Superbowl this year…

The Black Eyed Peas for this year’s Superbowl, really? Are they fuckin’ serious? I can’t stand this group. I never got into them. Their music doesn’t get to me. It’s boring and a bit overrated. Fergie’s actually going to be there too. How can the Superbowl go from Springsteen to Tom Petty to the Who to the Black Eyed Peas? That is pretty messed up in my opinion.

I would prefer acts such as Eric Clapton or Neil Young or maybe even the reunited Soundgarden should have gotten the gig. Anybody but the fucking Black Eyed Peas.

If they wanted a pop act this year, I’d prefer Justin Bieber, Kanye West or Rihanna. I could deal with them than the Black Eyed Peas. Black Eyed Peas is nothing special, I don’t see how people can get into that kind of music, not my thing. The Rolling Stones doing the Superbowl this year would have been great too. Lady Gaga would be another great choice. She’ll get her chance for the Superbowl soon.


Thought: Brock slams the Gaurdian Brevard aka “Protect Our Children”…leave Pete Townshend alone, idiots!!!!!

Another children’s ogranization is trying their best to get Pete Townshend and the Who off the Superbowl gig. I’ve seen the sex offender registery that was posted online.

NEWS FLASH: The sex offender registry aimed at Pete Townshend is probably fake, that was definitely photoshopped by the “Protect Our Children” website!!!!

Check it:

That’s NOT an actual sex offender registry.

If you seen what an actual sex offender registry would look like, law enforcement would NOT take any random picture of Pete smiling and photoshopped it on there. Plus, if you look at the registry itself, it’s not even correct of what the actual registry would really look like.

An actual registry would have a mugshot of the offender’s face on it. Does the background of Pete’s pic look like he’s at a police station? No. Look like he’s in a car. An actual registry would have more information on the offender than what is seen here. An actual registry would have the offender ID which this one doesn’t have and it would have the offender’s home address where he lives which this one doesn’t have. It would also explain the conviction, and when the arrest was made.

For an example this is what an actual registry would look like:


Pete Towshend is actually NOT registered as a sex offender at all. The “Protect Our Children” website is all over the guy.


They also claim Pete is an illegal immigrant, which I’m sure that is totally false and he is legal to fly over here. Pete Townshend is not a pedophile. He was a victim of it himself when he was a child to do research which he proved.

These so called children organizations need to leave the man alone ’cause it’s obvious they are jealous that the Who finally got the opportunity to play the Superbowl which they will never get. The Who playing the Superbowl should have happened a long time ago. I’d say they should still play the gig, no matter what attacks them.


If the POC organization checks out this post and if they threaten me to take it down because I used the company’s name, I won’t… because they’ve been called out ’cause all they are trying to do is make Pete Townshend look bad out of jealousy rage. I’m not afraid to tell the truth, no matter the consequences.


Edit to add: Although that flyer is just an advisory, they still tried to make it look like Pete is a registered offender which has never been proven if he was or not.
