Digg-ing Joe Rogan

For the past few days, Joe Rogan has become the talk of the internet. It started with the video clip of Joe Rogan confronting Carlos Mencia at the Comedy Store in Hollywood. Carlos Mencia quickly claimed copyright infringements against Joe Rogan. The clips were taken down from YouTube. Rogan then revealed that he’s banned from The Comedy Store. Shortly after, Rogan then revealed that he has parted ways with his agent; the same agent who works for Carlos Mencia.

Joe Rogan was added to the Hollywood Improv roster, and scheduled to perform on February 15, 16, and 17 (2007).

Numbers of Joe Rogan news have been made popular on Digg.com and received thousands of diggs. One article on Digg.com calls on the Digg community to tell Comedy Central to cancel Carlos Mencia’s show.

Many internet users have voiced their opinions and an overwhelming majority are on Joe Rogan side.

One thread in Megadeth Forums (free registration required) regarding the “Rogan vs. Mencia” saga has an interesting title.

Slayer Wins Grammy

Okay, this is literally a yesterday news.

Slayer wins Grammy Awards for their song “Eyes of The Insane”. It’s not the best song off “Christ Illusion” but it’s SLAYER!!!!!!!

iTune Store has the 49th Grammy Awards page, but Slayer is nowhere to be found there. Slayer’s “Christ Illusion” is available for purchase at iTunes Store, but it’s not on that list?
