Offbeat: The latest in the awful rapper game: BANGS’ Sudanese slang

  • We didn’t consider that there might be a rapper out there with skills even lesser than Boostalk‘s, but it appears Sudanese spitter BANGS has him beat. Sample rhyme: “Let’s sit in those two chairs alone/watching a movie/so we can see what’s going on.” So deep. On the plus side, at least we still have Chuggo. (Hat tip Andrew Sullivan)source

Culture: Dustin Diamond’s “Behind the Bell” has the worst cover design ever

Behind the Bell cover
Do we even need to say why? Just look at this crap. It looks like Dustin Diamond designed it himself. Here's why:

1. Forced pose. Diamond looks like he's trying to be the next David Copperfield, or it's a really bad Zack Morris impression.

2. Stretched, generic font. People who have no clue about design won't notice it. But we do, and it kills us.

3. Ganking from Google Images. Dude, you were on the show. You should have six of those photos on your fridge.

4. Bad use of Photoshop stroking. Congratulations, Dustin. You've created a candidate for the Photoshop Disasters hall of fame. SOURCE
