Just yesterday I was walking down the street, when Hans Zimmer approached me and started talking about how the shootings in Aurora was tragic, and if I would be nice enough to go onto iTunes and buy a tribute song he created, where the donations would go to the victim of the tragedy. I said sure, Mr Zimmer, it would be an honor. How much does the track cost? He replied, "I need about tree-fiddy."

Tree fiddy.

Well, it was about that time I noticed that Hans Zimmer was about eight stories tall and was a crustacean from the Paleolithic Era. The Loch Ness Monster. I said "Dammit, monster, get out of my way! I ain't giving you no tree fiddy!" He replied, "How about two fiddy?"

doglover: Larry Mahnken: You're getting awfully pissed off about something you shouldn't be getting at all pissed off about. You should probably calm down.

I had to sing We Are the World for like 6 minutes yesterday. I'm allowed to be upset about that.

Listen, there comes a time when we heed a certain call, when the world must come together as one. There are people dying, and its time to lend a hand to life -- the greatest gift of all.

Wolf892: I too hate when the rich come out with something that begs us normies to pony up the cash. I especially hate it when a celeb gets an illness and then suddenly ends up on tv talking about how we all have to donate to find a cure...that celeb didn't care about a cure until he/she had the illness...and these rich folk don't care a hoot about the suffering of the normies in everyday life...Rich people could just plunk down their own money for a change, like this shooting. If Zimmer wanted, he could buy each and every one of the people in that theater a new house or pay off every medical bill that the injured received...but no, he writes something on his piano that probably took him thirty minutes and basks in the glow of hero worship while us normies cough up the dough.
Rich people have one rule, never invest your own money in a project. Follow that rule, and you'll get rich.

To you and all the others like you out there. We get it. You are a troll. You are special. You have contrarian views. You are some or all of these things.

The guy made a single and said that 100% of the proceeds will be donated to victims. If you like his music, willing to spend $1.29 for it, which will also benefit victims, then it seems like a great situation for all involved. Buy your music, make your donation, and carry on.

If you do not like his music, but still want to help, you can just donate, any amount, whatever you like.

If you don't want to donate, that's fine too. No one is forcing you to participate in this. Carry on.

But NO, you act outraged that you might be asked to donate a nominal sum. The "rich" guy could afford to pay them millions, why are you asking me for $1.29? Waaah. Waaaahhh! Rich people are oppressing us "normies".

If you want to donate, do it. If you don't want to, that's fine too. No need to whine about it.

Having some trouble here. I listened to a bit of it and, being a Zimmer score, all I'm seeing in my mind is a movie clip of Holmes shooting everyone, in slow mo. After 3 seconds of him grinning and 4 rounds flashing out, we see a 1 second reaction of the crowd scrambling, 3 seconds of a brass casing slowly falling to the floor and another one just ABOUT to hit the floor, but then we cut to a camera near the door where people are scrambling over one another to get to it while the camera is moving upward on a jib arm, still in slow mo, then we cut back to the shooter on a close-up...

It's a movie score, which could be wildly inappropriate by some interpretations. Well I'm sure it's sorta just me and all.

Maybe that 9-11 America country singer can reclaim his 15 minutes with a song about this.

Sometimes, occasionally, humanity will NOT make me wish for a meteor to strike the earth and hit the reset button. This is one of those times.
