Good morning Bills Fans,
I know the title seems a little morbid, but what the heck
A few years ago; Rapper, Producer, Entrepreneur Jay-Z did a song called Death of Auto-tune. Those of you who are unfamiliar with Auto-Tune, it's basically software that is used to alter the pitch in vocal and instrumental performances. Rap artists and people who can't sing have been using this software so that they can alter their voices, and give an illusion as if they can sing. If you get a chance, Google this sound as its one of the most annoying things ever. When it was first introduced back in the late 80's with the song Computer Love; it was pretty catchy and different. Unfortunately, the younger generation of today can't let the pass be the pass. This is more evident with fashion and style, as the Afro, Bell Bottom pants, Flat Top haircuts, has made its way back to modern fashion. Rap Artist and Producer T-Pain, reintroduced this technology back in to main stream music. He was really successful, and like anything in life, if people see something that works they try to copy it. Now, every young rap artist/singer is altering their voice; to the point where their creativity is lacking, and being talented is no longer necessary in the music industry. Jay-Z, who is considered one of the "power houses" in the music industry and pop culture; decided to do a song that called out young artist using this technology. He attempted to make something that was cool or hip, in to something that was un-cool and undesirable. He wanted artist to get back to the artistry of music. To my delight and many others, he was successful. As Auto-Tune is quickly becoming a thing of the pass.
Okay, so what the heck does this have to do with anything?
Lately, on this blog as well as on ESPN and every sport channel, radio station, etc. There are certain topics that I will like to put a "death" to. There is one topic as of late, that has been driving me crazy. I'm not sure if it's purely an ESPN thing or what, but this "Bounty-Gate" crap has been driving me "BONKERS". I swear, I can't turn to a sports channel, sports radio station, pick up the paper, and go to a site without hearing about something that seems so irrelevant to me. This is my attempt to put to "Bounty-Gate" to death. Please no more articles, no more discussions, no more anything involving something that is so foolish. The media has this strange power to influence others, and make stories out of non-stories.
Now it's your turn Rumblers to put to death a topic that you are tired of hearing about. Whether its Tebow Mania, Linsanity, Peyton Manning, Steroids, whatever. Let your voices be heard and just maybe we can encourage "Change". "Yes we Can"..haha
