The Weekly Playlist

Sometimes, people get to music a little late. I had a friend who, last spring, couldn't stop playing "High" by Big Sean. Yeah, the one you heard in like 2010 or whenever it came out, he was bumping until deep into 2012. But that's ok; it wasn't new, but it was still good. So here we are with the first "Weekly Playlist", a cluster of jams I've been playing this past week. I can't promise you all new songs, but I can guarantee an enjoyable 8 song list, week after week, of songs you might not have heard yet, never would have heard, or love and miss. Without further ado...

New Song Spotlight - Purple Reign by Los

With Ray Lewis back for the playoffs, dancing and tackling his way to glory, and Joe Flacco throwing those impeccably placed downfield passes, the Ravens have made the Super Bowl for the second time in franchise history (in 2001, they won with Lewis earning Super Bowl MVP honors). Understandably, a lot of people (including myself) are pretty damn excited about it, but none more than Baltimore native and rapper Los, the perfect candidate to lay down a Baltimore themed anthem. Which he did. Enjoy.

NHL Western Conference Preview


NHL Western Conference Preview

After months of pain and suffering for all NHL fans out there, the season is finally back and NHL fans out there can all stop pretending to care about the NBA, AHL, ECHL, College Football or whatever other pathetic excuse of sports league was used to substitute the NHL.
Now that the NHL is finally back on ice lets take team by team look at what is in store for the 2013 season.

Throwback Thursday by Heartbreaker

Every Thursday, all our staff are encouraged to post an older song they miss and would like to bring attention back to.

The Return of the Sonics: A Friendly Reminder to Appreciate the Team

After five excruciatingly long seasons, where we watched the rise, rise, and continued rise of the Oklahoma City Thunder, grudgingly scattered our fandom among the other 29 teams, and even dealt with the demise of top local product Brandon Roy, the Seattle SuperSonics are finally returning for the 2013-14 NBA season, to the immense relief of Washington's basketball faithful. Chris Hansen, aka my hero, purchased the Sacramento Kings for $525 million (time out...525 million. Let that sink in. 525 million! We owe Chris Hansen a gift basket or Macy's gift card, at least). They will spend two or three years playing in the once-deemed NBA unsuitable Key Arena before moving into the under-construction new arena (Check out this sick ass design template here). For all of us buying merchandise, attending rallies, and complaining on Facebook, the reincarnation of the Sonics is a second coming of Adidas proportions, a chance to apologize to and make up with an estranged lover. But herein lies my only concern; a douchebag ex boyfriend might beg for the return of his girlfriend, promising her that this time, things will be different, that he's a changed man, that things weren't so bad in the first place. And, inevitably, when she falls for the smiles and the words ("all the right things"), she takes him back, he takes advantage of her, and she's miserable again.

Yo

What's up guys.

Real content coming soon, I just wanted to make sure the first post didn't have to do with Washington.

For those who don't know, this blog was started by my roommate, my ex-roommate and I, all sophomores at LMU. Hopefully this thing actually takes off and we don't get lazy. But yeah, thanks for checking us out. I hope we make it worth your while.
