Timbaland is a thief, AND an asshole

Whoo-ee this just keeps getting better.

If you're not up to speed on this; watch this.

Done? Here's Timbaland's response.
"It's from a videogame, idiot. Freakin' jerks"
It's around the 6 minute mark.
Not enough for you? Well.

from mtv news:

A European musician Tim is familiar with is, however, is the Finnish producer who accused him of stealing a beat (see "YouTube Clip Claims Timbaland Got Furtado Track From Finnish Dude"). Timbaland called the accusation "foolish."

"It makes me laugh," he said. "The part I don't understand, the dude is trying to act like I went to his house and took it from his computer. I don't know him from a can of paint. I'm 15 years deep. That's how you attack a king? You attack moi? Come on, man. You got to come correct. You the laughing stock. People are like, 'You can't be serious.' "


Great work man. Not only did you demonstrate complete ignorance about how the fuck copyright laws operate, but you showed complete disregard for the hard work of another musician, which makes you, by most standards accepted in western society as fact, a fucking asshole.

I used to have a great deal of respect for this producer, and that respect just became really hard to justify. I find it intensely satisfying that the first hit that pops up on youtube when you search for timbaland is evidence of plagiarism. Rock on.

Ninja Gaiden Black - A reminder

Just in case you forgot. Ninja Gaiden Black is still the single best hard action adventure game on the market. It trounces any and all opposition in terms of putting you in a world, giving you solid controls, stiff opposition and methods of decimating it/being decimated BY it that never get old.

Whenever you think about Tomonobu Itagaki, please, ignore DoA. Remember NG. I don't think the man will ever make as good a game ever again. It is truly a spectacular achievement.

It plays perfectly on the 360 as well, making it the best action adventure on the 360, and, rather alarmingly, one of the best looking ones as well. You can probably pick it up at a budget for a cough and a tip of the hat these days. If you haven't played it, you'd be sorry to miss it.
