A rapper stealing someone else’s music? Why I never…

A songwriter from the Western Pennsylvania borough of Sharon who goes by the stage name Maxamillion, has filed a federal $2.3 million copyright infringement lawsuit against Wiz Khalifa, claiming Khalifa’s chart-topping hit “Black and Yellow” was derived from his own song “Pink N Yellow.”

Max Gregory Warren filed the suit Dec. 30 in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania court, claiming that he wrote “Pink N Yellow” in 2007 and copyrighted it in February 2008. He is seeking a portion of profits for the song, which went to No. 1 on the charts in February 2011.

Birth-Songs

leave a comment »

So the most recent Facebook chain-letter thing is asking me about the #1 song in America when I was born. Considering I’m 35, this means I’m sure the song is disco-related.

After a quick Wikipedia search, I learned that my song is “Disco Lady” by Johnnie Taylor.

And to think if my parents got busy a few months earlier, I could have been Love Rollercoaster. 😦

But I didn’t want to stop there. I was curious to know what the nation’s top song was when I was conceived. I know it would be next-to-impossible to find out when that actually happened, but for the sake of discussion let’s pretend it took place exactly 9 months earlier from my birth date.

What did I end up with?

Considering my parents split up less than a decade afterward, Captain & Tennille were wrong on this one.

Conservative Straw Men (And Women)

OK, can we just nominate the Mor(m)on already?

A squeaker of an Iowa victory in hand, Mitt Romney headed Wednesday into the New Hampshire primary — in his own political backyard — insisting that staying power sets him apart from runners-up Rick Santorum and Ron Paul and the rest of the GOP presidential field. He shrugged off the promise of sharper criticism from his rivals.

For months the conservative bloc has been throwing up its candidate du jour for months now hoping one will stick – Bachman, Cain, Perry, Gingrich, etc. Santorum is the current, and last, one. I’m tired of all the coverage and it’s only January.

And while I’m at it, why does Leap Year have to occur during an election year? Like I want another extra day of this crap.
