2002-12-24 07:53:42 PM  
Slim Anus! haha thats so funny!

I really have nothing against him. It's a matter of opinion, I suppose. I think that his lyrics are rather witty at times, and some of his music has a pretty good sound. --disclaimer... His music is still not my thing 99% of the time. And, I certainly would not make him a person of ther year, whether it was because he was a great person, or a horrible person... I just don't see it.
 
2002-12-24 07:54:28 PM  
Person of the Year?
By "person" do they mean "wanker"?
 
2002-12-24 07:56:09 PM  
Feh.
 
2002-12-24 07:57:00 PM  
eminem is a fag

now where is that obvious tag at......?
 
2002-12-24 07:57:03 PM  
I'd do him.
And I like his muzak, too.
He's a lot better than most black rappers anyways.
Now how 'bout some nekkid pics, Em?
 
2002-12-24 07:57:35 PM  
I'm not a huge fan of Eminem, but the dude actually does have flow.
 
2002-12-24 07:57:45 PM  
Hmm he's okay in my book but I'd have to say that 95% of his fans are farking morons.
 
2002-12-24 07:58:33 PM  
I second that Lomaran.
 
2002-12-24 08:01:13 PM  
Sick him Moby!!
 
2002-12-24 08:02:23 PM  
I would acknowledge his technical abilities, but that "I'm Sorry Mama" song was so bad that I think he should be deported.
 
2002-12-24 08:03:44 PM  
King Hal was a man. A screwed up man, but a man nonetheless. Only a wimp makes cracks about another wimp.

...and the comparison some dimwit reviewer made comparing 8-Mile to Henry V still cracks me up.

2002-12-24 08:13:12 PM  
i agree with sillywiesel...

he isnt that bad, musically or as a person...

musically speaking, there isnt much out there nowadays....

i mean, unless you like sum52 or whatever they are...
 
2002-12-24 08:15:31 PM  
Eminem...something about a wood pile...what a dork!...go back to your trailer Eminem
 
2002-12-24 08:17:20 PM  
Does he even produce his own tracks? I thought Dre made all the tunes, and even so.. Im dissapointed in Dre. The production is not very good.

Yes, he can rhyme.. that doesnt make up for his elementary school behavior. Whatever sells records I guess... Personally, I think he sucks.
 
2002-12-24 08:27:26 PM  
I should be the person of the year. For Chrissakes, I host Fark Party Central.
 
2002-12-24 08:29:02 PM  
I can ryhme
I can crime
I can do this shiznizzle all the time.

WORD !
 
2002-12-24 08:32:56 PM  
Obviously they're smoking something else besides the gun, so to speak.
 
2002-12-24 08:45:49 PM  
Hey it could have been worst, J. Bush could have been the person of the year!!!!
 
2002-12-24 08:57:45 PM  

I'm not into rap "music". I usually listen to Tool, Alice N chains, Godsmack....etc etc... maybe some older New Order even...... but I do like "Em's" songs. He's a white rapper, in a field thats mojority is blacks, and he's doing it. Selling it. And making it. For that, I give him props.

and it's not a racist remark either.... think of it as a white owner who owns Panda Express....or even a Canadian hula dancer..... it just doesn't happen

 
2002-12-24 09:09:57 PM  
What were we supposed to be voting on anyway??

I vote that B0rg9's [image from totaltapeservices.com too old to be available] tag enter the tag pantheon.
 
2002-12-24 09:12:18 PM  
musically speaking, there isnt much out there nowadays....

There is, but you just have to look for it. And thats where the wonder of the internet comes in...
 
2002-12-24 09:30:18 PM  
I guess we COULD have a feh tag.. but who the hell wants to read an article knowing good and well it's going to be boring and mundane?
 
2002-12-24 09:44:51 PM  
Don't hate. You too can get "flow".
 
2002-12-24 10:07:01 PM  
i second Caknuck's motion to add [image from totaltapeservices.com too old to be available] to the pantheon of fark tags
 
2002-12-24 10:08:54 PM  
Somebody tell me it's a joke.

Please?
 
2002-12-24 10:15:41 PM  
I THIRD Caknuck's motion! New FEH Fark tag!
 
2002-12-24 10:50:33 PM  
Eminem is the shiat. Okay, his first CD was pretty immature but now he is down to earth for the most part. Go Download his Benzino flames, he has really grown up in the last few years, as hard as it is to believe.
 
2002-12-24 11:06:16 PM  
Ciggaweed:

You're right on target :thumps up:

And I also votefor Caknuck's "FEH" tag!

I wonder how voting works without voting being enabled in the first place.
 
2002-12-24 11:55:24 PM

1. You have no idea if he's bad or not "as a person", Downstairs -- you don't know him.

2. Yes, he has technical abilities. Unfortunately, he wastes them on spreading nonsensical hate.

3. Yes, it's probably true that he's just saying half that stuff to shock and thus get press and sales. And yes, that says a lot about the society that is so eager to consume it. Double-edged sword -- he's repugnant because he says it and you're repugnant for buying into it.

4. His story isn't original or interesting. Oooh, from the "white ghetto"! This isn't a new narrative or a culturally relevant one.

5. Yes, there's plenty of good music out there, just don't expect to hear it on the radio. (Just like there are good movies that aren't at Blockbuster, good food that isn't at Chili's, and good web content that isn't on Yahoo. Duh.)

6. Better than most black rappers? Since when did this become Eminem vs. black hip-hop? Newsflash, he isn't the first white rapper to do well in hip-hop. Oh, and Godsmack is brilliant, Vegasj, say goodbye to your credibility. And your little list of musical likes begs the question -- do you hate black people or just their "music"?

7. He's not that attractive, Alymier -- flash anyone's face on the news 10 times a day for a couple years and they're instantly attractive too. (Your response: not Tom Brokaw! Mine: People think he's hot too, just because you don't doesn't disprove the theory.)

Yes, but I had the Boobies.
muahahaha
I got nothing to contribute to this thread except merry Xmas and all that happy crap.
 
2002-12-25 12:29:03 AM  
I'm lost on the "with voting" part of the headline.
 
2002-12-25 12:32:25 AM  
Sanders, that pic in your profile is well.....just go look everyone.
And I didnt mean to say boobies....the Fark filter got me.

I lose any respect for a man that has to make a dummy dressed up as Moby and shoots it on stage.

Moby (and others) makes one comment, and suddenly they're hated.

He's a farking schoolboy. Cant handle negative criticism. Pussy.
 
2002-12-25 01:19:59 AM  
I'm all for a [image from totaltapeservices.com too old to be available] tag.
 
2002-12-25 03:04:37 AM  
It sure takes a lot of talent to say "f*ck".
 
2002-12-25 04:37:51 AM  
Alright I can see it's time for me to spread some TRUTH up in here.

Eminem can rap but the music he makes sucks.

He is so angry and hateful most of the time because he always had envisioned himself being a respected rapper like the guys he idolized while growing up and he is angry because he has become a candy ass TRL rapper, but he continues to do it although not liking it just for the money.

Most of you that say " gee I don't listen to rap usually but I actually do kind of like Eminem" well that's a bit racist I suppose considering the only real reason you listen to the guy a little bit or mildly like him is because he's white.

Unfortunately he will be doomed to go down as a pop star, not a respected rapper and ultimately known as a " sell out" to the masses of true hip hop fans. In the end he will probably kill himself quickly or slowly through drugs, alcohol or something else because of his self hatred from being a pop star and not a respected rapper in the hip hop game or he'll get tough with the wrong guy and get his ass biatch slapped sending him back to Detroit never to be heard from again.

HAHHAHAAHAHHA EMINEM IS A HOMO1!@!!!! HE LIKES SEX IN HIS ANUS!@! YU ARE VARRY CL;EVAR SIR!

2002-12-25 02:53:15 PM

That is all.
