DJ Blog: Talking Trash with Ash, Trash of the Week Pt. 20

Ignorance is bliss? I don’t think so.

A recent survey conducted in Mississippi shows that 52% of Republican voters think that Barack Obama is Muslim, along with 45% of Republican voters in Alabama.

…He’s Christian.

But Obama’s religion is not the point of this rant. Why are people in today’s society still ignorant? We have the world at our fingertips! All you have to do is type a candidate’s name into Google, and you can educate yourself better than half of Mississippi…

So please, regardless of whether you’re a Republican or a Democrat, educate yourself on the candidates before you vote.

Oh, you don’t have time? Turn off that reality show right now and get to it, dummy.

With (tough) love,

All right, by now I’m sure you’ve heard all about this Kony character.

Maybe you’ve even shared the video—congrats, you’re a philanthropist! …Not.

This Invisible Children organization spent $8,676,614 last year with only 32% of it going to direct services for the charity… This is how they made such a tearjerker for all of the teenage Facebookers to watch and post but not have any means to help.

Awareness is important, sure, but the people who have the means and the power to donate already know about this issue, and you sharing the Facebook video is really not doing anything except making you think that you’re popular.

With that being said, Kony is a terrible man, and he needs to be stopped. But before trying to conquer a sensationalized problem overseas, realize that we have hidden problems and charities right here in North America that need your help too.

With the “unconstitutional” Prop. 8 ruling and the suspension of CNN’s Roland Martin, I have to say… Bravo, society!

But, Roland—you’re an idiot.

This week, the CNN political commentator was “indefinitely suspended” after some not-so-nice tweets during the Super Bowl, for examples:

“If a dude at your Super Bowl party is hyped about David Beckham’s H&M underwear ad, smack the ish out of him! #superbowl”
“Who the hell was that New England Patriot they just showed in a head to toe pink suit? Oh, he needs a visit from #teamwhipdatass”

Number one: you work for CNN, but you tweet with that language? Hmm.
Number two: David Beckham is the sexiest and I’m sorry that he intimidates you so much.

But honestly, please keep your homophobia to yourself.

She clogged everyone’s Twitterfeed, blocked off a large chunk of a hospital, and is STILL about to get picked on by a handful of cruel schoolchildren…

On Saturday, dynamic duo Beyoncé and Jay-Z welcomed their little bundle of joy with a quite curious moniker: Blue Ivy.

Um… Blue… Ivy?

Let’s try to find some logic in this:
1. “Blue” to represent Jay-Z’s Blueprint album franchise.
2. “IV” to represent the couple’s “favorite number”, which Beyoncé’s latest album “4” can attest to…

Favorite color and favorite number: brilliant!

I mean, it’s better than some other recent celebrity baby names—for examples, “Pilot Inspektor” “Fifi Trixiebell” “Audio Science”—right?

Nope, I don’t think so.
Give your babies a little respect, celebs. They’re going to hate you when they grow up.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… Just kidding. The notorious year 2012 has been welcomed with nothing but sunshine and warmth…

According to the National Weather Service, only 19 percent of the nation was covered in snow as of Thursday, which is less than half of the average snow cover over the past five years on the same date.

The Associated Press says the drought is “costing tens of millions of dollars in winter recreation, restaurant, lodging and sporting goods sales” this year.

What’s the deal, Mother Nature?
Not only are you ruining everyone’s holiday season but you’re kicking our economy when it’s down.

You’re fired.

DJ Blog: Talking Trash with Ash, Trashiest Celebrity of 2011

As 2011 wraps up, and we look back on all of the trash in the media, what better way to ring in the New Year than to pick the Trashiest Celebrity of 2011?

As I’ve dished the daily dirt through the airwaves, this has-been has cluttered more than a few rants…

Drum roll please.
The Trashiest Celebrity of 2011 is Lindsay Lohan.

As I’m sure you could have guessed, from her probation violation and jail to assaulting a worker at her rehab clinic, this girl’s definitely got what it takes to be named the Trashiest.

And just because Marilyn posed for Playboy doesn’t mean it makes you any classier, Lilo. Also, please make a New Year’s resolution to stop doing whatever is making your teeth look so disgusting.

With (tough) love,
Ash
