#EatCelebrityMeat (Made from Jennifer Lawrence, Kanye West, James Franco and Ellen DeGeneres)

Salami akaAssuming it’s not an elaborate hoax, would you eat a salami made from lab-grown meat grown from tissue from the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Kanye West, James Franco and Ellen DeGeneres? Apparently there are people clamoring for this dubious sounding product from BiteLabs, which says of itself:

BiteLabs produces fine artisanal salami from meat that has been lab-grown from celebrity tissue samples.

In 1931, Winston Churchill predicted a future in which all the world’s meat would be grown in labs; what, he asked, was the sense in raising a whole chicken merely for the sake of its wings or breast meat?

Today, In-Vitro meat production is close to becoming a reality, offering highly controllable meat production without the animal cruelty, waste, and environmental impacts of industrial farming. But this process can offer so much more than replicas of beef and pork.

Imagine meat like never before.

The process begins with myosatellite cells, which are obtained via biopsy.

Bitcoin Smackdown: Kanye vs. Coinye

coinyeannounceLook for the launch of Coinye, a Bitcoin wannabe, to be moved up from the planned January 11, 2014 release date to as soon as 7 PM PST today, January 7. Unless Kanye West ruins the fun and succeeds in suppressing Coinye, that is. The Wall Street Journal reports on his legal foray thus far:

Lawyers for Kanye West filed cease-and-desist papers against the seven anonymous coders behind Coinye West, a virtual currency that went from chatroom joke to Internet sensation last week.

The legal document, dated Jan. 6, includes an image of Coinye – a cartoon representation of West on a gold medallion. West’s lawyer argues trademark infringement.

“Given Mr. West’s wide-ranging entrepreneurial accomplishments, consumers are likely to mistakenly believe that Mr. West is the source of your services,” wrote Brad Rose, a partner at Pryor Cashman LLP, which has previously worked for West.

Hoping to keep pace with the self-assured, brash West, the techies aren’t backing down.

New World Order: Hip Hop’s Obsession With The Illuminati

Wu Tang Clan on StageThis one just won’t go away, will it? S’pose it must be true.

Revisited this time by HipHopDX:

“We want sanitary food / Planetary conquest / Thug peoples on some hard cold body shit / Get your shit together before the fuckin’ Illuminati hit…” – U-God, “Impossible”

As a young Hip Hop head, I vividly remember the first time I heard some of my favorite emcees begin to throw out theories about Freemasonry, Illuminati and a New World Order. It was a 1995 article on Wu-Tang Clan from the June/July issue of Vibe. In addition to the normal interaction between Clan members, the following exchange between Raekwon, U-God and Ghostface Killah caught my attention:

Raekwon: “Were just building and keepin’ shit together, you know? This is Born Power hour. The Clan got shit locked down for the next five years. Right now, we’re preparing for the Illuminati 2000, which is the Masons’ plan for New World Order.

Kanye West “Power”: Illuminati Overkill

disinformation reader Niall sent us a note saying:

Here’s an article I wrote about Kanye West’s latest video “Power” and how I think he is basically trolling the internets and conspiracy theorists with it. It’s from our music blog Shallow Rave — we don’t normally cover esoteric stuff, but it’s a personal interest of mine, and when the two subjects collide it’s too good an opportunity not to miss!

Here’s Kanye’s video and below the story from Shallow Rave:

So, have you sen the video for Kanye West’s “Power”? And did you notice all the occult symbolism there-in? Come on, let’s be honest here – you’d have to be a total fucking idiot not to.

I have commented on this kind of thing before (most notably Lady Gaga), but if you are new to the modern trend to read everything in pop music as being controlled by the Illuminati, then start here

Kanye’s Album Cover: Banned By Whom?

kanye cover

So here’s the now infamous non-cover for Kanye West’s forthcoming album, “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy,” which normally I wouldn’t consider newsworthy as it’s clearly just Kanye hyping the release, but it does raise a good question: when an artist says his or her work has been banned, how official does the “ban” have to be? If a corporation that controls the artist’s work refuses to release or exhibit it, is that a ban, or does a ban have to be from government with criminal penalties attached?

For those of you unaware, Kanye has been trying to whip up interest in his album by tweeting about the cover. A couple of sample Kanye tweets:

“Banned in the USA!!! They don’t want me chilling on the couch with my phoenix! http://twitpic.com/2ykxjk

“So Nirvana can have a naked human being on they cover but I can’t have a PAINTING of a monster with no arms and a polka dot tail and wings.”

“In the ’70s album covers had actual nudity… It’s so funny that people forget that… Everything has been so commercialized now.”

Kanye West Death Hoax Takes Internet By Storm

Kanye disses disinfo

From the NME:

A hoax posting on Twitter claiming that Kanye West had been killed in a car crash has taken the internet by storm.

‘RIP Kanye West’ has become the top trending topic on the site and the top Google search term in the USA just hours after someone falsely posted that the rapper was dead.

West‘s girlfriend Amber Rose moved quickly to quash the rumours on her own Twitter page, Twitter.com/DaRealAmberRose.

“This RIPKanyeWest topic is not funny and it’s NOT TRUE!” she wrote. “He has people like myself and his family that love him very much.

And don’t forget what Kanye did to disinfo!… Read the rest
