    You think I care about foul language just because I hate the fact that two clowns like Kal Penn and Al Franken are working for the government. I don't care.

    I just think if you're going to devote your life to being a dirty comedian, actor, rapper, etc. you shouldn't be able to work for the government.

    I hate rap because it's my opinion... and most people my age listen to rap that comes on the radio which happens to ensue bleeding from the ears.

    I like classic rock, rock, alternative, some hardcore rock, some metal, and that's about it.

    But you also said how you thought Heartbreak Kid was too vulgar. Or something along those lines, and called Stiller a pervert haha.

    So I was just putting 2 and 2 together.

    I think I saw that one with a girlfriend... or a good girl friend.

    That may have had something to do with it... I mean, the movie was pretty perverted. No doubt about that. I had never seen Ben Stiller in a movie like that.

    There was one part they could have definitely done without, and you know exactly what I'm talking about.

    That was weird, but no... it was the bush part. lol

    I've already seen Bruno twice. haha

    There's a handful of super gay parts, but I got past them.

    Deuce, you seem to know your ish (sorry, lame rap joke) when it comes to hip hop. I'm not a huge fan but there are rappers I listen to a lot for sure.

    I'm curious as to why you hate Lil Wayne so much. Yeah, he's very bubblegum at times, but he can write the occasional rhyme that's really clever (plus he has a knack for rapping about football and the Titans in general). I'd listen to him for hours before I listened to one minute of 50, Soulja Boy, Nelly, Chingy, Puffy or any of the million pretty boy rappers out there who never say anything even close to intelligent. I don't think you are giving Wayne quite enough respect by lumping him into that category. That said, I realize that he's not exactly the greatest rapper ever.

    I won't give my list because I can't really decide, but I will say that Tupac and Biggie are both not on it. They clearly had a huge cultural impact, but neither guy was really that great in my mind. I'd take Andre 3000 over both of them any day.

    I've listened to hip hop for years but really don't consider myself knowledgeable. I don't listen to radio at all or really follow what goes on in the culture of hip-hop. The artists that I listen to just came through natural progression. I missed out on the Biggie thing and I really regret it. I couldn't even really name one of his tunes. But if the music is great, it's also timeless and it'll be right there waiting for me whenever I get around to listening to it.

    Some of the guys I really like...

    Talib Kweli
    Andre 3000
    Dark Thought
    Guru
    I still love the way Chuck D can pound down a lyric
    and of course Goulet!

    Goulet is legendary.
    Oh that dress so SCANDALOUS you know another N**** couldn't handle it, I think I'll sing it again, shoo bop shoo bop thong song.

    Why would you want these dubious ruffians when you can get a legendary crooner like goulet?
