My wife is from Oklahoma City. I’m from Memphis. We live in Memphis. Needless to say, the current NBA Playoff series between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Memphis Grizzlies is creating a bit of tension in our house. In order to vent some frustrations, here are our thoughts on the other’s fandom.
I consider myself a horror movie buff. Seen the good ones, seen the bad ones, seen the ones other people have never even heard of. In the past few years, I have been pleasantly surprised to see the uptick in horror-esque television shows appearing on nearly all of the major networks. Scary TV programming is very hot right now. Just look at the following list and you’ll see something that either you or someone close to you watches on a … →
Sunday evening at the 1884 Lounge, the smaller, more intimate concert room of Memphis’ Minglewood Hall, The Lone Bellow played a sampling of songs from their self-titled debut album to an enthusiastic, albeit slim crowd.

Boy howdy am I excited to be an Ole Miss Rebel today. Yesterday we inked what many think is the best football recruiting class in the university’s long history, and hopefully that is just the beginning of a rise to prominence (read: not sucking too bad) in the SEC. But as I look over how my day progressed yesterday, it makes me stop and wonder about the recruiting process as a whole. How it unfolds, how it affects the players, … →
