Creation of my personal blog

Dear friends and fellows,

I have decided to create my own blog that will be called “Isa’s blog about Eminem”. Why create this place? I already do write for Gavin and for UMFM…

The reason is simple. I have created this space because it is a chance for us freelance writers to get a little bit money when people read us…
I am asking you, please to support me and to visit my blog. I’d also be very grateful to anybody who could help me advertising this little personal space.

Thanks in advance for your help. My blog is located here:

Another suicide case in the Mathers family leaves deep wounds into Marshall's heart

I couldn’t believe my eyes as I discovered the news in the UK mirror yesterday. The Mirror certainly wanted to make a big sensation by showing a title like « Eminem’s « father » shoot himself in the head.

Aint no way no how, this bullshit can’t be true
We family and aint a damn thing changed, unless it’s you… »

Todd Nelson commits suicide

EMINEM was devastated last night after the uncle who he regarded as his dad committed suicide:

Todd Nelson shot himself in the head as he sat in his car. He had become depressed over a sheriff’s rottweiler which was allegedly terrorising his family.

The 42-year-old helped raise Eminem, whose real father walked out when the rapper was a baby.

It is the second close relative the 32-year-old controversial star – real name Marshall Mathers III – has lost to suicide.

His other uncle, Ronnie, killed himself after being dumped by his girlfriend.

A family friend said: “This news has hit Marshall hard. It will bring back all the memories of losing Ronnie.

“To lose two uncles at such a young age is terribly sad, especially as his father has never been around. The fact they both committed suicide is so tragic.”

Eminem’s granny, Betty Kresin, said the family was “completely devastated”. She added: “I’m so heart-broken, I don’t know if I can handle this as well. He’ll be buried next to my Ronnie.

“Todd had been very upset about a rottweiler owned by a local sheriff who was causing problems for his family.

“The dog scared his girlfriend’s son and scratched his car.

“But when he complained to police, they wouldn’t do anything about it.

“He shot himself in his car in his own backyard. My grandson, Todd junior, found his body. He thought his dad was asleep but he was dead.

“He called me and then Marshall and the rest of the family.”

Betty said her daughter, Debbie, Eminem’s mum, rang the star to tell him they are to bring Todd’s body home to St Joseph, Missouri, following his death in Michigan.

It is the latest family tragedy to strike Eminem.

His ex-wife, Kim, tried to kill herself four years ago. And mum Debbie, 48, who he once called a slut in a song, is recovering from breast cancer.

His tormented family life has inspired many of his songs. He recently fell out with Todd over his uncle’s plans to sell the family home. But when he was younger, he idolised Todd.

In the past, his uncle said Eminem had been “a shy kid with few friends”.

He added: “Marshall grew up believing he was different to everyone else. It was something instilled in him from an early age by Debbie, me and his grandmother.

“Marshall was a happy kid. He was good at entertaining himself and he laughed a lot.

“I remember one time I walked into his room and saw all these posters of black superstars on his walls. Basketball stars, baseball players, rappers. He would spend hours drawing groups such as Public Enemy and NWA. Even as a kid, he idolised Dr Dre.

“At the time I thought he was going through some kind of identity crisis. But I guess he just knew from an early age.

“Everything Marshall has achieved professionally is wonderful. I couldn’t be more proud of him.”

Bush's Bulge

So even Kevin Drum is suspicious about the now infamous bulge in President Bush’s back. I have to say I am pretty convinced after looking at these photos. The question is, what they hell is it? And will we be seeing more of it in the future?

The Register meanwhile suspects foul play with a wireless network. Is it a prompting device, that I really could have used for my Leaving Cert exam? Is it a medical device? Back brace? Bullet-proof vest?

The Whitehouse flatly denying it really doesn’t wash with me.

Nicholas D. Kristof: Our least efforts save thousands of lives

Nick Kristof praises the US president for his action on Darfur, but laments the tardy and inadequate response to the overall situation. He pointedly asks if a mediocre effort saved so many lives, how many lives could a full and immediate international response have saved? And to those out there who seem to either dislike or even despise the United Nations, read the figures:

Even within Darfur itself, the UN World Food Program managed to get food to 1.3 million people last month out of the 2 million who need it.

Sterling work indeed. Do people still think the UN is a waste of time?
