George Bush Still Hurt by Kanye Comments, West Expresses Sympathy

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Music, Videos,


Although it would be difficult for anyone to forget Hurricane Katrina, former President George W. Bush says there is one particular moment surrounding that 2005 event that still stings to this day.

In an interview to air next week on NBC, Bush calls the time Kanye West suggested he was a racist (see the video above) one of the lowest points of his presidency.

"It's one thing to say, 'I don't appreciate the way he's handled his business.' It's another thing to say, 'This man's a racist.' I resent it, it's not true, and it was one of the most disgusting moments in my presidency," he recalls to Matt Lauer.

Having endured his own public scandal since that time, a mellower Kanye expressed sympathy today in an interview with a Houston radio station. (You can listen to that chat after the jump.)

Gear Live Gives Back: Education Charity Drive

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Announcements,

Alright, let’s take a break for just a moment away from the standard news fare. We know that you guys love the gadgets, gizmos, and consumer electronics just as much as we do.  These expensive and cool toys are often a marvel when you break them down to the technology that drives them. That’s what makes what we do fun, and why we love the interaction we have with our readers. However, we want to focus a bit of attention on the young ones in our country who would be happy to have a calculator for use in class, and the teachers who work for districts that can’t afford things like projectors for use in their schools.

Gear Live has joined the 2007 DonorsChoose Blogger Challenge, and we have chosen ten great causes that are centered around getting some basic technology into classrooms located in our local area, as well as some of the hardest areas still suffering the affects of Hurricane Katrina. We’ve chosen ten causes that we thought touched on what we believed in, and you can take a look at them and choose which one(s) you want to help. Our goal is to raise $10,000 for the children of our nation. Just know that the money you donate will go directly to that specific teacher request - not into some big pot of money that is then doled out by the organization. As donations come in, there meter over on the right will fill up.

Some of the most expensive purchases for schools are consumer electronics. We believe that all children need to get acquainted with the tools of the future as they learn so they when they are ready to hit the workforce, they can succeed alongside their peers. Please, help us in assisting teachers, children, and schools in low-income areas get the tools they need to help their children excel.

Football Returns to New Orleans

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Editorial, News, NFL,

The Saints are back home!The prodigal franchise has returned.

After a whole season playing “home” games at Baton Rouge, San Antonio, and even East Rutherford, the New Orleans Saints came back home last night to New Orleans’ Superdome, which suffered major damage due to Hurricane Katrina.  Due to many factors, including dealing with the destruction of a city, the constant traveling, and an empty place to call home, the Saints finished the 2005 season at 3-13.  After last night’s 23-3 win over the formerly undefeated Atlanta Falcons, the Saints have matched their total number of wins last season and are now atop the NFC South with a 3-0 record.

Comic Relief Makes a Comeback

Posted by Wendy Michaels Categories: Comedy, Cable, HBO, Cable/Satellite, News,

Comic Relief Remember how great Comic Relief used to be? They were wildly successful at raising money, yet somehow they stopped making new ones. Hard to believe that it’s been eight years since the last Comic Relief special. After the long hiatus, Comic Relief returns to HBO this fall—raising money for the Hurricane Katrina recovery. For those without HBO, their Time Warner “sibling” TBS will also air the Comic Relief 2006 concert live on Saturday, November 18th. The special is taking place in Las Vegas and it’s good to hear that the original hosts will be returning. Robin Williams, Whoopi Goldberg and Billy Crystal originally hosted Relief in 1986 and hosted the first eight concerts.

“Disasters like Katrina devastate the environment and cause suffering for all forms of life, both human and animal,” says Bob Zmuda, Comic Relief’s founder and president. “Comic Relief is determined to address these tragedies by benefiting everyone from the elderly to children and pets.” Look for live segments from New Orleans during the three hour show. The specifics of the performers have not yet been released.
