  1. With Gary Glitter’s crimes, it doesn’t just end there, look into OPERATION YEWTREE, hope you have a strong stomach

  2. Top 10 canadian cartoons please! Cmon guys, you’re canadian! Give our animation, wich doesn’t get enough credit, some credit!!

  3. The Michael Jackson case may have been big, but it was also utter bullshit. Its far too easy for someone to take a kind natured person, esspically when they are in the public eye constantly, and try and use them for money. Michale Jackson was NOT a pedo. And if you do your facts right, its not hard to find this out, he was not convicted, the case was full of holes, people were using the man simply to try and get money off him. He was full of money after all.

  4. Rap music today is a sick joke full of horrible rappers with high pitched voices and garbage lyrics. Only thing they have is a dope beat to trick people into thinking it’s good. Real rap forever.
