(Video) Watch The Throne - Kanye West & Jay-Z Joint Album and Documentary

What You Need To Know:
1. Watch The Throne is a joint concept album by Jay-Z and Kanye West
2. Featured below are a leak featuring the great Otis Redding, and a mini-documentary for the highly anticipated album. Naturally, Jay-Z's superstar wife, Beyonce is featured in the film and the album.  A surprise however was Russell Crowe, randomly hanging out in the home studio to co-sign Kanye's praise.
3. The album is said to be release August 1, 2011 (Digitally), and August 5, 2011 (Physical).  This maybe a great idea to combat the unavoidable pirating of the disc, by delaying pressing and shipping it.  Such are the hardships of being on top. #WatchTheThrone

Vancouver Riots over Stanley Cup Loss

What You need to Know:
1. Hockey is to Canada what Baseball is to America, what Soccer is to Brazil, what coke is to Colombia - it is simply what they do best and are proud of it.  (and really it's the only thing they're good at)
2. Canadians are usually regarded as mellow, gentle and generally unthreatening people (see: Justin Bieber, Drake, and William Shatner)
3. Vancouver is in Canada, Stupid (I capitalized that because it's your title for not knowing that). Anyway, this happened because a Canadian team lost the Stanley Cup Finals to the Boston Blah-blahs.  This especially stings because no team wants to loose to a team from Boston.  Boston sports clubs tend to have some of the most pompous fans in all of sports. (See: Boston Red-Sox)

Bonus: I may have reached a personal record for how many people I can offend in a single post.  At least it's not Feminists or PETA this time.  Those people are scary.
