11. Best & Worst Songs Of 2011

2011 has been a great year I must say, especially for the music industry. Again, what I list here may have been produced in 2010, but nevertheless got famous in 2011 (in Australia anyway).
I can't only put one song considering I can't truly decide, but I'll give you a batch of the best and worst (: And remember, these choices are all my opinion so if you got a complaint, then rant about it on the comment box and I'll have a fiery debate with you in the next twenty years or so.
NOTE: The majority of best songs are going to be Electro/House/Drum&Bass based, so yeah, all you Indie-lovers just click the close now.


  • Def Manic's Entire Discography (If you don't know who he is, then look him up on Youtube, I'm not kidding)
  • David Guetta - Without You
  • David Guetta - Titanium (yup, for being played at least 7 times a day on the same radio station)
  • David Guetta - Where Them Girls At
  • David Guetta - Nothing Really Matters
  • David Guetta - Lunar
  • Yeah actually, just the entire David Guetta - Nothing But The Beat Album, no kidding ;)
  • Avicii - Levels (No, not Flo Rida's 'Good Feeling')
  • Avicii - Fade Into Darkness
  • Cee Lo Green - Forget You (Yeah, because I don't like swearing, AND WHAT?!)
  • Pendulum - The Island (Madeon Remix)
  • Brian Joo - Domino
  • Eminem ft. Royce Da  5'9 - Fast Lane
  • Eminem ft. Royce Da  5'9 'N' Bruno Mars - Lighters


  • Pitbull's Entire Discography (Apart from 'Give Me Everything,' but then again, Ne-Yo's singing most of it)
  • Nicki Minaj - Super Bass (Just don't like it, I'm sorry. Even the kids like it, shouldn't they be listening to Lazy Town??!)
  • Beyonce - Run The World (You dud, you practically ruined 'Pon De Floor" Zzz...)
  • LMFAO - Sexy & I Know it (Just so you know, your rod is half the length of mine)
  • Taio Cruz - Hangover (Sounds like 'Where Them Girls At's degenerate younger brother)
  • Willow Smith - Whip My Hair (We all know Will Smith pushes his kids too much)
  • Rebecca Black - Friday (Thanks for telling me that yesterday was Thursday)
  • EVERYTHING FROM THE ARK MUSIC FACTORY (Don't know who they are? Don't look them up, you'll thank me one day)
Honorable Mention

  • All them Glee Songs and their ability to make some songs actually sound good ahem Friday (again, no homo)
  • Eminem - Lose Yourself (I know this song was like 2002, but it helped me push on in my final year of High School)
  • Eminem - Stan (YES I KNOW THIS SONG WAS FROM 2000, but it taught me to reply to all my Emails and Comments, yes that means you)
  • One of those Adele songs you listen to after getting a cruddy exam mark (or if you're feeling down)

10. Best & Worst TV Shows Of 2011

Alright, these next few posts won't necessarily be rants, but more of an acknowledgement.
Feel free to comment and express your own opinions!
First off, TV Shows. Now these shows have been On-Air before 2011 but they still deserve an honorable mention.


I've seen three full episodes of this show, not in succession but skipping 5 episodes between each other. Why did I skip?
It's because I wanted to see how long it took the writers to finally make a good episode.

Jersey Shore is, without a doubt, one of the worst shows that has ever been aired. That's right, not only in 2011, but in existence! There is truly no point to the show, except to show us in blatant detail what kind of human beings we DO NOT want to be: Stupid, promiscuous, shallow, self-centered, arrogant, lazy, classless and lacking of practical skills. I swear every 5 minutes the boys are back at the gym, and the girls are flirting with random guys. 

Get this, this is what one of the guys said: "Oh bro, it's so good to be a guido*, I don't know why you wouldn't become one." 
You know the show is going to fail when the one of the guy's name is 'The Situation.' But see, that's where I'm wrong, the show is not failing. As a matter of fact, millions of people actually watch this sitcom, just shows how screwed up this world is.

Anyways, now for the best.


What more must I say?
4 nerdy boys and 1 dumb babe = Profit!
Award for greatest breakout character goes to Sheldon (well duh), for his lack of social intellect, idiosyncrasies but supreme intelligence.
Honestly, if you haven't watched it then you're missing out.
If you happen to not like it, then feel free to voice your opinions in the comment box below however wrong they may be (:

9. Aftermath

Merry Christmas to all of you! although I'm one day late.

Don't know about you people and where/how you celebrate it, but here in Australia we celebrate the magnificent Boxing Day (day after Christmas)  by doing nothing other than shopping like a total lunatic. You Americans can relate this to your Black Fridays (day after Thanksgiving).

Just to be clear on things, I have never actually experienced shopping in Boxing Day in my life before today (inevitably dragged to go by parents).
What made me want to rant about this, as a matter of fact, is my experience with today.

You're put into a bustling crowd with literally no air to breathe but the caustic body odour of those sweaty bogans around you. OH and I must add, the temperature was soaring and the weather was rather humid, so yes I was close to hell.

People lose all dignity when shopping during Boxing Day. Some people camp overnight to be first ones in line, just to save 15% off a dress. Wow if you did that, that means you probably couldn't afford them in the first place! You know you hit rock bottom when you're sleeping on the sidewalk.

To make matters worse, every five-seven turns, you will see two females arguing over who saw what piece of clothing first!

Not only is it difficult to move around, but once you have finally found clothes that actually looks good and isn't a size XXXXL, you have to make the arduous trek to the fitting room which (guess what?) has a long as line - with smelly bogans yes. 

Once you've finally gotten a fitting room and tried out your clothing, you begin to squeeze past the barbarians surrounding you to reach the cashiers, which happen to have a line consisting of 40 people.
40 people with an average of 1 minute to serve a customer.
Maths Extension 2 skills tell me that it will take you 40 minutes to reach the cashier. Good Luck Brave Shopper. 

To sum up this whole rant, all problems arise due to the number of people that are with you at the mall.

Moral of the story: You better shop online during Boxing Day, if you don't well then, be prepared for all the hassle and pray your girlfriend/wife does not come along.

8. Screwed Up Ideologies #6

Alright from here, you can see how our brain can't understand probability, but this is a part 2 if you'd like to call it that. I had to make this because a friend tells me about his crappy day where his girlfriend did this and that, and he missed the bus and it rained so he had to walk home and blah blah blah. I don't care. He screams at me over MSN. "Let's see how you feel when it happens to you!"  Like dude, first of all, I drive a car...anyways to the point:

Have you heard about the European dude who sleeps with one eye open, on a chair, whilst holding a shotgun? You know, just in case the mafia storms into his house to kill him?
Well hand him a bunch of sheets outlining the data which states the 'death by murder' rate in the city of Switzerland (1 guy dead in the last 10000 years). Heck, he'd have more chance lighting his house on fire or dying via lightning strike, but no he won't change his mind. As a matter of fact, he'll just tell his recount of a story where an old guy named Leon sleeps with one eye open with a pistol by his side, successfully killing the crazy Die Hard terrorists who tried to get him. Funnily, that bizarre example surpasses the data of statistics/probability and all that maths.

Another [true] example lies in the sector of politics (here we go). The great nation of USA spent 1.3 trillion (That's a tad over 22 Bill Gates) on the war of terror in reaction to the 14000 or so deaths from international terrorism from 1975 to 2003. Now I'm pretty good at Maths Extension 2 and that equalizes up to 90 million dollars for each person that was killed. Ain't that a great use of money, good thing they didn't use it for other silly things, like finding a cure for cancer or preventing industrial accidents. Note the sarcasm, industrial accidents cause a high amount of deaths.

These 2 examples above have an emotion tied closely to them. Fear.
As experts point out, "When a strong emotion is tied to an unlikely event, our ability to understand the word, 'unlikely,' goes out the window."

So maybe next time, think a bit before you tell someone: "Let's see how you feel when it happens to you." Because you'll look like a dud and chances are, it will never happen in their life.

7. Screwed Up Ideologies #5

Arguments over the internet and the presence of Keyboard Warriors* is proof enough that the ongoing generation is screwed! You can't post a video up of Eminem without a raging debate settling in about Conspiracy Theories and Illuminati and Stonecutting Men (Freemasons)! Deadset, these days it's as if everyone has a Ph.D. and all they want to do is pour out their so-called knowledge and wisdom on the comment box!

And you'd think that with all the disputes and arguments on important issues flying around, that people would be much more knowledgeable and well-informed. But the thing is, it doesn't work like that, especially how your brain processes your thoughts - as a matter of fact, it's the opposite. The existence of these arguments will only make you stupid, narrow-minded and prejudiced!

Reminisce the times when your foolish friend rants about conspiracy theories such as Aliens staging the 9/11 Attacks or Illuminati taking control of the world. When they were shown evidence that their conspiracy theories were wrong, did they accept it? Did they truly back down? Did they reach a point of enlightenment and think, "Hey, that evidence is right...My conspiracy theories are wrong!"

Well guess what? That has literally absolutely positively never happened in the history of mankind. Even to crazy politicians who rant about the Carbon Tax and whose points have been contradicted by further [scientific] evidence, they'll just jump to the next point and continue to release their barrage of @#$!ery which attempts to back them up. In other words, they will continue to defend their position even after it is factually proven to be untrue and the fact that people will always try to guard their points, although proven wrong, is how arguing started in this sick sick world.

Humans are programmed not to seek the truth, but to win: Humans did not learn to ask questions and provide answers to find universal truth. We did it as a way to attain [social] dominance over others, truth and accuracy are irrelevant.

So the next time you're in an argument, remember that your brain is unscrupulous, and all it wants is to win. 
Why don't you Google for some solid proof that backs up your argument, and when you fail to find even one (which will probably be on your first try), just stop. See if you can think to yourself, "I really was wrong."

Yup, harder than you think. These days, however, admitting you're wrong or attempting to prove yourself will be the difference between matrimony and divorce. Admitting you're wrong is one of the finest skills you can have these days (especially if you want to stay married), rarely will you find one with this skill!

*Person who starts fights and uses aggressive words over the internet, especially on MSN, Facebook and forums. Though normally a quiet, shy person in person.

6. Screwed Up Ideologies #4

This time, it has a name which I know of: Special Pleading

Special Pleading is when you allow something to be an exception to a rule, for no logical reason.
In other words, people use Special Pleading to make them feel not as guilty for doing shitty things.

Special Pleading is just you being a big hypocrite.
You won't have to ask me for more examples of this hypocrisy. As a matter of fact it ranges from cops to politicians to fat people suffering from Type-99 Diabetes (yeah that's pretty bad).

  • Cops not writing traffic tickets to other cops.
  • Politicians who highlight how important the public school system is  while putting their own kids in elusive private schools.
  • "I know I was a heroin addict and I told myself not to take it, but this is different. It's Meth."
  • Your mate eats the last big mac? What a dud! He deserves to die. No class whatsoever. Fatty! When you eat the last big mac? It's because you were really hungry and you've had a bad day and you didn't have enough big macs last time and you exercised the other day and...
What's ridiculous is how everyone excuses it in their own minds.

You won't find anyone who exclaims that "the rules don't apply for me because I'm awesome!" Instead, the ideology sticks within their heads to relieve themselves from any feelings of guilt.
Oh but don't worry you're absolutely right! You did argue with your boss because you had a bad day, you do have bad habits due to your inferior upbringing and drug-addled parents and you do post up rants on Blogger because you think this world is a screwed up place. 
But what's strange is, we don't let anyone else use those excuses: "The girl serving me counter was being rude and I don't care if she had a bad day!"
Many of you are bitter over what others (especially your friends) have done yet you've forgiven yourself for doing it lots of times.

I don't get they call this Special Pleading, for all I can see is a bunch of hypocrites.
