Today marks the anniversary of the day that the world lost the greatest rapper of all time. Christopher Wallace's untimely death on March 9, 1997, had a significant impact on the rap game.

It's understandable to sneak in a little ad placement all up in your video, but when the product makes more appearances than the musician? There's a problem.

Taking Woodstock is in theaters Friday. Maybe it will be really good, or maybe taking a stand-up comedian and sticking him in a semi-dramatic movie about Woodstock that doesn't feature any -- any! -- musical performances is a terrible idea.

There is almost nothing I can say about this that wouldn't get me picketed. Direct from the PETA website at www.peta.org: People don't seem to like fish.
