…America is part of a Food Fight?

Food Fight

Food Fight is “an abridged history of American-centric war, from World War II to present day, told through the foods of the countries in conflict”.

It’s a pretty entertaining and “chronologically re-enacted smorgasbord of aggression”, and definitely worth a few minutes of your time, so watch and see if you can identify all of the parties involved.

…Dodge’s Challenger SRT-8 is no slouch?

Dodge Challenger SRT-8

The new Dodge Challenger is the heavy artillery of the modern muscle car war.

It’s big, it’s powerful, it’s only offered in the high-performance SRT-8 trim level, and you can have it in any color you want, as long as it’s Hemi orange, silver, or black.

Unfortunately, the interior suffers from a severe case of rental-car-itis, but when it’ll do this all day:

Who’s really going to look closely at the seats anyways?

For a full rundown, driving impressions, and big, bold and beautiful pics, check out Motive’s coverage of the new beast.

…Kanye beat 50 (and Kenny)?

Kanye West Vs. 50 Cent

When two kings of marketing wage a war, only one can win, and in this case, Kanye gets to keep his crown.

Kanye West and 50 Cent (and Kenny Chesney) all released albums on September 11, and Kanye and 50 decided to make it a contest to see who could sell the most records.

Apparently, it was a publicity stunt that worked, because they sold a combined total of over 1.5 million records, and Kanye had the largest sales total by a single artist in more than two years according to Billboard.

With 957,000 albums sold during the week, Kanye’s “Graduation” easily outdid the 691,000 copies of 50’s “Curtis”; leaving Kenny came in third with a respectable 387,000 for his “Just Who I Am: Poets & Pirates”.

According to their agreement, 50 will never again release another solo album, though we’ll see how long that promise lasts after the dust settles.

My opinion: No big loss, as after listening to both, I must say that Kanye’s release was so fresh and so clean, while 50’s seemed to stick to the tried and true, though that’s feeling a bit aged after all these years.

But hey, at least there’s always Kenny!
