BF College Football Picks 2009 Final Records

Mike, Sports 1 Comment

Matt dominated our BF picks this year. I fell behind in the final week or two.

Matt 49-21
Evan 40-30
Ahad 40-30
Mike 39-31

The one positive I’m taking away from my picks this season was my prediction in Week 8. My pick for the Kansas/Oklahoma game:

Kansas doesn’t impress me at 5-1. Looking at their schedule I can see them ending up 6-6. Oklahoma doesn’t have Bradford but they still have their D. That’s all they need. Pick: Oklahoma

I was a little off, Kansas ended up 5-7. Still, not a bad call only half way through the season.

Some other music findings

Mike, Music No Comment

Punchline: Night Lights – Donate $6 and you get this album of unreleased songs. I saw Pretty Petty, Changing Lanes, and a bunch of acoustic versions and I didn’t hesitate. A quick listen to a few of the tracks and I’m in love with the acoustic version of Don’t Try This At Home. I couldn’t find a version on YouTube to do it justice. You need a clean version, not a cell phone camera version.

Gregory James – Posted a few songs from his new EP. Girl Next Door is pretty catchy. The EP is called Pop Rocks and Flip Flops. Honestly, that sets the catchy bar pretty high.

Ben Hammond – He has an EP coming out in January, that one’s called Garden Statement. 151 is the song I checked out that merited a link here.

I found this montage set to Punchline’s Pretty Petty …

Lostprophets – Where We Belong

Mike, Music No Comment

If you can’t tell, I’m catching up on my AbsolutePunk feed. Here is a new Lostprophets video. This song caught my ear. I don’t really listen to them all that often. One or two songs are in my regular playlist. I mention that to point out that I’m not a huge fan just sharing anything new I hear.

Party in the USA – Rock Cover

Mike, Music No Comment

I’ve noticed a lot of punk bands covering Miley Cryus and Taylor Swift songs. This one is a Miley cover by Life on Repeat. At first I thought it was just a straight up cover, but then they turn it into a heavier rock song. It actually sounds pretty good. Swear.

Last Name Ever. First Name Greatest.

Mike, Music No Comment

I don’t think I’ve ever been more hooked on Sirius Hits 1 than I am right now. It’s a combination of being down on the new Alt Nation songs and a whole bunch of Hits 1 songs getting stuck in my head. Just look at my recent music posts, that’s not like me. Anyway here’s Drake. Forever mein. Ever mein. Ever mein. (I wasn’t really sure how to spell it like he says it.)


Drake – Forever (Ft. Kanye West,Lil Wayne & Eminem)

Nazi Twins on Nat Geo

Mike, TV No Comment

My sister sent me this. At first I thought it was about actual Nazi Twins. It’s actually about a town in Brazil where more than half of the families have had twins. Crazy, right? So why the Nazi part? Apparently Josef Mengele might have something to do with it. I’m in. It’s on Saturday @ 7 and likely a bunch more times.

Magic Johnson talks Michael Jackson on Kimmel

Mike, TV No Comment

I realize this is two clips from the same show but this one shocked me. Magic Johnson was friends with Michael Jackson and he talks about how much fun they’d have in hotels on tour and playing with fireworks at his house. Now this still makes Michael Jackson sound crazy. But hearing Magic say it makes him sound like he was just a big kid. What I don’t understand is why they aren’t sending Magic out to talk about Michael rather than the Jacksons? I’d say people would see him as slightly more credible.

Kimmel Talks Tiger at Barbershop

Mike, TV No Comment

If they announced that Kimmel’s show was going to be in the barbershop every night, I think I’d change my entire life around to watch it live instead of on DVR.

Couldn’t not include some Reel Big Fish

Mike, Music No Comment

This doesn’t have anything to do with anything. It doesn’t apply to the current people suck mood. But one of the bands I thought to look for some good ones was Reel Big Fish. This is the most upbeat I Hate You song. This song can’t help but make you feel better, no matter what the situation. I should have this as my alarm to wake up to in the morning.


Reel Big Fish – Say Goodbye

It feels so good to say goodbye, when with you I wanna die.

About that Juliana Theory song

Mike, Music No Comment

Since I just mentioned it in the last post, I decided it had been a while since I had listened to it. Such a great song and it was perfect for college me.


Juliana Theory – If I Told You This Was Killing Me, Would You Stop?
Mike

This should cover it

Mike, Music No Comment

Somehow I don’t have a backlog of songs for when people suck. I have plenty for just one person sucking, but what about when a bunch of people are causing problems? There is a Juliana Theory song that comes to mind but that is already attached to a particularly sucky situation.

You think I would to. In college, when I’d get really stressed with lots of stuff due my roommates would refer to me being ‘angry at the world.’

Thanks to YouTube, I found the exact song to express my feelings. For a second there I thought I might have to start my music career. I feel like I’ve heard this song everywhere, need to remember it for future bad days.


Go Set Go – I Hate Everyone

On second thought, it could be angrier.
