"The Cult will perform 'Love' in its entirety at Terminal 5 in NYC on September 11th"

Jeez, is the dead end of the Don't Look Back series? How surreal! How many people actually want to see this album in its entirety? I know I do...but I highly doubt I'd pay thirty bucks to see it.

KRS ONE, real name Kris Parker, defiled the memory of those who died in the terrorist attacks as he spouted off at a recent New Yorker Festival panel discussion:

"I cheered when 9/11 happened . . . I say that proudly," the Boogie Down Productions founder went on, insisting that, before the attack, security guards kept Blacks out of the World Trade Center "because of the way we talk and dress. So when the planes hit the building, we were like, 'Mmmm - justice."

The atrocity of 9-11 "doesn't affect us the hip-hop community," he said. "9-11 happened to them, not us," he added, explaining that by "them" he meant "the rich ... those who are oppressing us. RCA or BMG, Universal, the radio stations."

Parker also sneered at efforts by other rappers to get young people to vote.

"Voting in a corrupt society adds more corruption," he added. "America has to commit suicide if the world is to be a better place."

I never knew that. This changes my feelings about him completely. Look who's ignorant, after all.
