The Worst Singles of 2006.

2006 was a great year for music. There were some outstanding albums and amazing singles. However, for every good single released, there's always about a billion terrible singles released. Some of the artists on our lists couldn't release a good single if they tried (*cough* Fergie *cough), but some of the songs came from some decent artists that made some really poor decisions. Now, we're not naming any names, but it's safe to say that next time anyone decides to come out of retirement, they should maybe try a little harder to put out an album that is up to standard.

Here's our least favorite singles of the year:

1. Show Me What You Got - Jay Z Probably the most obvious choice Ever
2. Work it Out - Jurassic 5 ft Dave Mathews
3. Money Maker - Ludacris ft Pharrell
4. I Love My Chick - Busta Rhymes
5. Put Em in Their Place - Mobb Deep
6. I Wanna Love You - Akon ft Snoop Dogg
7. Ms New Booty - Bubba Sparxx ft Ying Yang Twins and Mr Collipark
8. Why You Wanna - T.I. This one pains me because I really really like this album
9. Ridin Dirty - Chamillionaire ft Krazy Bone
10. Crazy - Gnarles Barkley. On the sheer fact that my mom thinks this song ishot.

- Pickle

1. Window Shopper - 50 Cent
2. Where's You Go - Fort Minor (Jay-Z was behind this sentimental bullshit? Awful, awful, awful.)
3. Snap Yo Fingers - Lil' Jon
4. Dem Jeans - Chingy ft Jermaine Dupri
5. Shorty Like Mine- Bow Wow ft. Chris Brown
6. Pump It- BlackEyed Peas
7. Kick Push - Lupe Fiasco (I really, really like Lupe, but the lyrics on this track make it an absolute trainwreck.)
8. Wind It Up - Gwen Stefani
9. Nothing in this World - Paris Hilton
10. Impossible - Kanye West ft. Keyshia Cole & Twista

'Tis the season for extravagance, and nobody knows more about wreckless spending than rappers. Along with their inflated bank accounts come inflated egos....

Christmas remix

Ever wonder what would happen in those Christmas movies if the endings you talked about when you were stoned were actually made?

Go here to find out.


Wisconsin is fucked.

I was cool with their unnatural obsession with cheese (because I understand that cheese is delicious), their fields and fields of ginseng (because somewhere, an asian dude with a boner is thanking god that Wisconsin exists), their funny accents, and I'm certainly cool with the fact that Wisconsin raised Chris Farley out of it's cheesy loins.
The one thing I'm not cool with? Two words: mutant deer.
No thanks, Wisconsin... No thanks.

Christmas in the emergency room.

Man, kids these days are wusses. When I was a kid, we played with chainsaws and jagged rocks. Nowadays, kids are lucky if their parents let them play with cotton balls. That being said, there are some dangerous toys out there that definitely cross the line. Watch out for these bad toys, they will fuck you up.

The death of the hotline.

Do people even call non-pornography-related hotlines anymore? Do they even exist? While scanning through Giant Magazine's second installment of the Top 50 Commercials of the 80's (here's the first part, too), I was reminded of all of the fun that you could have on the phone in the late 80's/early 90's.
Let's say you were totally into LL Cool J.... You could call and spend like $7 (which in the late-80's was equivalent to $64) listening to him blab on about his new album. Let's say you needed answers about your life... Miss Cleo had it in the bag for you (for about $30).
If you were a teenybopper... Well, don't even get me started, but it's pretty safe to say that the Coreys would be happy to take your dial-a-dollars as well.

Maybe they need to bring back the hotline... My phone bills have been looking a little light lately.

Dear Eddie Murphy,

Even though I don't necessarily support your habit of knocking up Spice Girls and then denying it (c'mon, man, let's face the facts: you're getting a little older, and I don't think you can do any better than Scary Spice.....just admit it and get on with it), I can't help but love you a little bit for making this video.
You see, I too like to party... All the time ('cept for on Sundays... That day is reserved for Laguna Beach, Flavor of Love, and the couch).
