There's no earthly way of knowing
which way this motherfarker's going
is she shooting up or is she ho'ing
is she flatlined or is she flowing

/yes I read the article

"When I was a kid I would have given a nut to win something like this."

He took the words right out of my mouth.

Oops, I mispelled Willy, mods.
2003-09-03 6:56:45 PM  
Too bad he's not playing "dead chump at the end of my shotgun".
2003-09-03 7:42:57 PM  
After seeing the "Family Guy" remake already, I'll just skip this one.

The first 500,000 copies of the Obie Trice album will randomly contain three "Golden Tickets". The winners of the tickets will get an all expenses paid trip to Detroit and hang out with Eminem in the studio while he makes his follow-up to The Eminem Show.

Boy, that Obie Trice (who?) album must be laayyyyyyyyy-ame. "Hey kids! Buy this album and you'll get a chance to see somebody else record another album!"

Did they even think this through?

When he meets his fan he should walk in the room surrounded by a bunch of freaky midgets.
2003-09-03 8:50:11 PM  
Obie Trice IS lame. He was on a track or two on The Eminem Show and crapped it up.

I don't like the look of it...
2003-09-03 10:55:19 PM  
I always pictured him as more of "Willie Makeit."

"Everybody's always doing the same [shiat] with their records," [Obie] says. "'Buy my album, get a DVD, get a free poster, get a piece of my toilet seat' ... [fark] all that [shiat].

This sounds a tad hypocritical considering he's giving away tickets with his album

Eminem plays Willie Wonka in a remake? Four horsemen, mount up.

I have to go repent now, so I don't have time to read the article.
2003-09-04 12:49:48 AM  
god dammit, headline writer. don't do that!
2003-09-04 12:50:05 AM  
Holy Christ! An all-expense paid trip to Detroit! And I thought the free tour of that Waste Management Facility was a lucky break!
2003-09-04 12:50:35 AM  
Anyone else scream "F*CK!!" pretty loudly before they actually read the article?
2003-09-04 12:50:43 AM  
stupid stupid stupid....
2003-09-04 12:51:26 AM  
dude don't scare me!!! THey are making a remake of willie wonka....i thought that maybe he was going to be in it. With Tim Burton directing it might be worth wild (rumors of johnny depp playing mr. wonka) but if Eminem is in it, it'll be shiat.....sorry
2003-09-04 12:51:48 AM  
*Grandpa Joe rolls over in his grave*
2003-09-04 12:52:24 AM  
"i bet the golden ticket makes the cd sound terrible"

oh wait, it's eminem's music that does that...
2003-09-04 12:52:38 AM  
yasser arafat to play veruca salt.

experimental theater/film sucks ass.
2003-09-04 12:53:12 AM  
Quobobo: Yes. I screamed "Eff asterisk cee kay exclamation mark exclamation mark" extraordinarily loudly.

Sinatra: Nice job on the headline, despite the spelling error. *golf-clap*
2003-09-04 12:55:22 AM  
I bet Eminem has a 'fudge room' in his studio
2003-09-04 12:55:38 AM  
I was about to wonder what the fark Tim Burton was doing with his remake
2003-09-04 12:57:32 AM  
The trick is to watch Eminem record, you have to buy Obie Trice's album.

only one problem. it's illegal to do that (unless they're offering a some sort of free way to obtain one of the tickets). the FTC will shut that down in a hurry.
2003-09-04 12:57:38 AM  
oh oh, can i really go see some no-talent a$$ clown record an 'album'? my life would be complete if i could.

2003-09-04 12:57:54 AM  
That scared the begeezes outta me...
2003-09-04 1:00:37 AM  
I heard that Stevie Tyler's playing grandpa.
2003-09-04 1:02:15 AM  
Almost fainted when I read the headline -- thought my favorite movie would be tainted forevermore by a crap remake.

/sigh of relief
2003-09-04 1:04:34 AM  
eminem's music (rap in general, i guess) reminds me of my washing machine when it is off balance.
2003-09-04 1:05:15 AM  
Don't ask about the secret ingredient

/image not included. Use your farking imagination.
2003-09-04 1:05:17 AM  
Triumph the Insult Comic Dog should have mauled this guy when he had the chance.

Eminem is great, for me to poop on.
2003-09-04 1:05:45 AM  
hell, I thought it was slang for masturbation, I sometimes refer to my member as my Willy Wonker, so naturally I thought this article was stating something obvious
2003-09-04 1:06:17 AM  
Wilder is a better rapper.

There's no earthly way of knowing
Which direction we are going
There's no knowing where we're rowing
Or which way the river's flowing
Is it raining? / Is it snowing?
Is a hurricane a-blowing?
Not a speck of light is showing
So the danger must be growing
Are the fires of hell a-glowing?
Is the grisly reaper mowing?
Yes, the danger must be growing
'Cause the rowers keep on rowing
And they're certainly not showing
Any signs that they are slowing!
2003-09-04 1:06:54 AM  
I think I want to win this trip.

So I can shoot Eminem. In the face.

/Rap hater.

sorry about that, mod...

Willie Wanka.

Willy Honka
2003-09-04 1:13:25 AM  
I'd pay good money for one of those tickets...

Just so I could give that guy one swift kick in the nuts.
2003-09-04 1:14:22 AM  
Hey great marketing spin.
But Obe - shouldn't you feel bad you have to give tickets away for a CHANCE at another artists "prize" to sell your shiat?
2003-09-04 1:15:26 AM  
cool idea. good, creative way to sell some extra cds. or like the way metallica packaged a DVD in with st. anger (ok, yeah, the music sucked, but still).
2003-09-04 1:16:34 AM  
Considering Eminems target audience is probably NOT overwhieght computer nerds, I'd say all this talk is pretty pointless!
2003-09-04 1:21:51 AM  
aw yeah shiat nig, dis be da mad note!

/kill me
2003-09-04 1:22:07 AM  
I don't care what you think about him or his music, that's a good promotion they came up with, and (yes, I am a republican) anyone with any intellectual honesty clearly has to admit there are few popular musicians today with even half of the talent he has as a lyricist...lyricist, not musician, LYRICIST, meaning lyrics.

/trying to preempt getting flamed by equating rap with more refined styles of music.
2003-09-04 1:22:17 AM  
The winners of the tickets will get an all expenses paid trip to Detroit

What does "winner" mean again?
2003-09-04 1:22:50 AM  
Good Call!
That was one of my favorite episodes.
2003-09-04 1:23:39 AM  
Cheer up Charlie
2003-09-04 1:28:06 AM  
...and before the flames begin, I'm not talking about cussing and 'biatchez' and all that crap, I'm talking about the fact that while most popular music concerns itself with absolutely nothing worthwhile, Eminem tackles subjects such as minors with guns, class envy, racism, idol worship, broken families, etc...clearly not 'Tha Thong Song' or any useless drivel like that.
