#NowPlaying – Amy Winehouse “You Know I’m No Good” RIP 9/14/83 – 7/23/11

by THE INFAMOUS JCITY™

On July 23, 2011 Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London apartment. No specific cause of death was giving, so everyone claiming that she died from a drug overdose can just shut the fuck up with that bullshit until her autopsy report comes out. I’m sure drugs deteriorated her body to the point where she looked like she was malnourished and fragile, but until people know the specifics then they really shouldn’t speak on it. While most of society will remember Amy for her problems with illicit narcotics, I will always remember her as a raw soulful talent that never quite reached her full potential. She lived her life by her rules and while others sat around and judged her for it, I found that to be quite an admirable trait. Amy joins other talented musicians that died at the age of 27, including Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Freaky Tah and one of my all time favorite musicians, Kurt Cobain.

“You Know I’m No Good” was the first single released from Amy Winehouse’s “Back To Black” album, which is an emotional soulful album that went on to win 5 Grammy Awards. I swear that I can feel some of her pain on this album and to me that is the mark of a true exceptional artist. It’s also the first time I have ever seen Amy and she caught my attention fairly quickly seeing as I love me some hot chicks with tats.

After the jump are a few unedited thoughts on Amy Winehouse’s death as tweeted by a few celebrities. May you rest in peace Amy, you were an inspiration to those who live their lives the way they see fit despite what anyone else may think or say about it.

WHAT?: Brief Thoughts On WWE’s Capitol Punishment PPV And The Death Of Jackass Star Ryan Dunn

WHAT?: Brief Thoughts On WWE’s Capitol Punishment PPV And The Death Of Jackass Star Ryan Dunn

by THE INFAMOUS JCITY™ 

I have been quite busy for the last few days, but I didn’t forget about yall. I didn’t think I was going to see Capitol Punishment, but I ended up watching it with my fam on Father’s Day so that was cool. When I review shows I usually have them on my DVR so I can rewind certain parts and get a more critical analysis, but that’s not the case here. I am writing this using nothing but my memory and with the amount marijuana I consume on a regular basis I wouldn’t be surprised if this was the crappiest PPV recap I have ever put together, I’m just keeping it real with you guys. Instead of going the traditional route and doing the whole review thing, I have decided to bring back WHAT? in order to express my thoughts on the PPV. Also, as a huge MTV mark (at least back when they weren’t playing Teen Mom on a continuous loop) I was shocked to hear about the passing of Ryan Dunn. I loved when MTV used to show Jackass all the time and have enjoyed their crazy antics on the big screen, so hearing about what happened totally sucked balls. Anyways, usually when I write WHAT? I try to fit in as many things as possible, but this edition is only about Capitol Punishment and Ryan Dunn. Enjoy.

Divas Spotlight: Layla El: In Memory Of Shaman’s Harvest

Shaman’s Harvest was quite the interesting character. Some might have known him as a 24 year old virgin. Others might have known him as an ignorant racist. Then there are those who knew him as the guy who exposed himself to be a 15-year-old when my insults where getting the best of him. I will never forget that day. He tried to make me seem like a bully that was picking on a little kid, but all it accomplished was that nobody believed anything he ever said after that. Shaman was a mysterious character. Unfortunately the world will never know his true identity or age. We will never read his delight as he finally got laid or his displeasure when his mothers basement overflowed with water. We will never get to read another Shaman’s Harvest article as long as we live. It is with a heavy heart and a sense of sadness that I report to you that Shaman’s Harvest has passed away. Just when the little fucker was hitting his stride as a writer he decided to croak. Did he commit suicide? Did he die from a heart attack while writing his Handrew Henry trilogy? Did he die while furiously masturbating to a leaked stream of “Backdoor To Chyna”? The world will never know.

I have tried reaching Shaman through Twitter and Email. He would usually reply promptly, but I haven’t heard from him in over 3 weeks. People have asked me where he is at and what he is up to and the answer is quite simply, the little fucker is DEAD!!! Even though we have had our differences, Shaman was my ace boon in this long and interesting writing path I have taken. It doesn’t feel the same without his little sarcastic comments or his weird yet interesting stories. As a way to pour out the proverbial liquor for my little homie, I have decided to re-post this Divas Spotlight featuring the always flawless Layla El. Shaman wasn’t a big fan of all the women I posted on my other site so I was surprised that he had requested this particular Divas Spotlight because for a second there I was beginning to think he specialized in playing the skin flute. So this ones for you Shaman. May you rest in peace 😦 Read more…

RIP “Macho Man” Randy Savage – November 15, 1952 – May 20, 2011

As I read all the online reports and put this together I still can’t believe that this is real. In a world when we are conditioned to call WWE wrestlers, “Superstars”, there was once a time when wrestlers were so larger than life we didn’t need to be told they were a Superstar, we just knew it. Randy Savage was one of those wrestlers. A real life superhero that could play any role to perfection. Savage was one of the best heels (and face) the world of professional wrestling has ever known. It really irks me when people mention the all time greats and forget to give Savage the credit he deserves. He was just as a big as Hogan, both during the 80’s in the WWF and then in the 90’s as WCW was being overtaken by the NWO (which Savage later became a member of). Compared to todays times, if Hogan can be considered the 80’s John Cena type then Randy Savage can easily be the 80’s equivalent of a Randy Orton. Both men were instrumental in catching my eye as a young (and extremely) impressionable wrestling fanatic. While I didn’t become a super fan until the nineties (I wasn’t allowed to watch much wrestling when I was really young because I would use the moves on my siblings), late 80’s wrestling captured my mind in ways nothing else other than the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and He-Man could possibly do. Savage was at the forefront of this movement. I admit to missing alot of his earlier career and I really don’t remember things before Wrestlemania 7 when he was already winding down his in-ring career in the WWF, but what I did see lead me to dig up all those tapes and school myself on the legacy and what a legacy did this man ever leave behind.
