Soulja Boy – The Next Big Game Designer?

American rapper, Soulja Boy, famous at school dances and night clubs for his hit “Crank That (Soulja Boy)” has new and exciting plans for his career. In a video interview that can be found on JoyStiq, he announced that he “wants to get into things like video game design and web site design.” He also wants to attend college but says he’s unable to because he is a “superstar.”

xPirate Cranks Dat Soulja Boy: Dot dot dot, question mark? I don’t even know where to begin. I guess I’ll start with the fact that in high school these days, if you don’t know the Soulja Boy dance you are shunned, hated, and sometimes even killed. Well, maybe not that extreme, but it is taboo to not be familiar with it. I’m wondering what kind of video games he plans to make? If it’s another Grand Theft Auto type criminal game, then he’s just going to further the rapper stereotype and humiliate himself. If he wants to intelligently design a game that gamers are going to be able to enjoy for hours on end, then I’m all for it. But if his game is anything like his music, you’ll be Superman out killing hookers.

I also wonder if he knows how much time and effort it takes to design a game. I’ve personally tried getting into the business but simply lacked the availability to get it done. So if he’s thinking it’s all the fun of playing games itself, he’s got another thing coming.

I wish him the best of luck and hope that he does decide to go to college. He’d probably be the first rapper to do such a thing. Nothing against rappers, it’s just most of them these days only talk about how much weed they smoke and how much they have sex. And while weed and sex may be important to the college atmosphere, it is most certainly NOT a reason to go to college. So good luck Soulja Boy and if you do manage to break into game design, PLEASE don’t make crappy game!

Tina Fey is Sarah Palin

Tina Fey is back again on Saturday Night Live (SNL) portraying presidential vice president candidate Sarah Palin. After a stunning opening performance two weeks ago, Fey is back again as Palin, this time parodying her press interview that took place a few days ago. A highlight from the skit includes Fey’s Palin stating, “Katie, I’d like to use one of my lifelines…I want to phone a friend.” It goes on to include one of the governors quoted lines from the interview, “Well, in that case, I’m just gunna have to get back to ya.”

The first parody by Fey and Poehler featured a conversation between Sarah Palin and Hilliary Clinton. The humorous skit was a hit, which is quite possibly the reason Fey was back again as Palin. Many fans concur that Tina Fey looks incredibly similar to Palin and would love to see more. It is unsure whether Fey, who is currently working full time on NBC’s 30 Rock, will once again become a regular on SNL.

xPirate Sends His Love to Tina Fey: First things first, this is the girl that brought us Mean Girls, one of the best movies of all time! Every time I’ve seen her perform, I’ve loved it. There’s no going wrong with Tina Fey. She’s a stunning actress, wonderful at writing comedy, and all around amazing in every way.

As far as the parodies of Sarah Palin, pure genius! I believe she accurately portrays the Alaskan governor, both in physical appearance and mentality. My favorite line of all so far was in the first skit where she said, “I can see Russia from my house!” I probably laughed for like 20 minute straight. This girl has got some real talent and I hope to see her a regular on SNL again.

John Elway Engaged!

Former Denver Bronco’s hall of fame quaterback has recently been engaged to former Raider’s cheerleader Paige Green. The engagement apparently took place in Italy where the two were vacationing together. The two met during a celebrity golf tournament, but didn’t start dating until Elway saw her on an infomercial. A wedding date has yet to be set.

xPirate’s thoughts on the engagement: I thought John Elway already had a family? I must have been wrong. Either way, he’s still the best quaterback ever! I remember watching him take the Bronco’s to the Superbowl twice and winning them both. It’s awesome to see him married. I only have one problem with it…a Raider’s cheerleader? Ewwwwwwy! Other than that, congradulations John! Oh yeah, and GO BRONCOS!
