Oh! I'm Ready For It! C'mon Breeng Ehhhht

I am not sick of Snakes On A Plane jokes. Nor have I had my fill of hearing the new Cobra Starship song, "Snakes On A Plane (Bring It)." I think the movie is going to be classic (no one else could star in it BUT Samuel L.), and the song is going to be an interesting novelty in about six months. Kicking off deez muthafuckin' snakes on a muthafuckin' plane, the song launches into Midtown's Gabe (you know the super-crush from MTV's Real World) and several other unmentionable rock stars.



I saw this today, though, and I'm a little WTF. Yeah...WTF. You know what I'm saying here. And I mean below, not the photo above. (Ok, well, that too...)

A message from Gabe Saporta of Cobra Starship:

1, 2, 3, 4, who's punk what's the score.
I'm so punk rock that I walked away from a half-million dollar deal at a major label to sign for no money to Decaydance/Fueled By Ramen. And when I say a half-million dollars, I don't mean, a half-mil all-in including video budget, tour support, promotion, etc. I mean a half-mil besides all that--a half-million in cash. And when I say no money, I mean, pay for the recording and that's it. Nada. Can you imagine turning your back on all that money? I didn't even look at the FBR contract, I just signed on the dotted line and drew a peace sign. It was one of the hardest decisions I've ever had to make, but like the Wolf says: in this business, success only come with control. This year Decaydance is takin' over.


I'm half "Nice job, Gabe" and half "Uhh, sorry, I'm fresh out of sympathy hugs right now *cough*" I mean, really, thanks for clarifying that you had to walk away from $500,000 of pocket money. I'm sure that was hard, but is that going to make me more intrigued about Samuel L?

I think not.

He does a fine job by himself. "Haven't you evah seeeeeeeeen [his] movies?!"

Whatever. Up the punx, Gabe. Wanna dumpster?

Hi,

I'm seeking help for the children of Haiti.

I'm at this site for a non-profit haiti organization that devotes themselves to
creating oppurtunities for the kids in haiti. If anybody wants to donate then this is the place:

[url=http://universallearningcentre.org]Donate to Haiti[/url] or Help Haiti

They provide children in Haiti books and teach them.

Please check them out, they're real.

It would be great if you could help
