Mmmhops Cologne is Out; Having Your Own Alcohol is In

Cologne is out, having your own alcohol is in.

Hanson is the most recent to hop on the hop wagon with their beer “MMMhops” (not even kidding).

The still touring band (still not kidding), launched their brews at the release of The Hangover Part III because “Mmmbop” plays for a split second in the film. Logic.

Since the dawn of fame, celebrities and others looking to make a buck off them, have attached their names to products to ignite capital gain. And it works.

Starry Night Vanity and Van Gogh

On my way home for lunch today, my perpetually sullen NPR lady shared the following report:

On this day in 1890, Vincent Van Gogh died, two days after shooting himself in the chest in a wheat field. He made it back to his bed, where the doctor decided not to remove the bullet. His brother, who rushed from Paris to his side, was the recipient of these final words: “The sadness will never end.” Read more

A (Hopefully) Christian Approach to Macklemore’s “Same Love”

Posted on by Josh Smith in Entertainment, Faith, Featured, Guest Spots, Music | 1 Comment

I know it’s only July, but I think we can call this thing since it’s all politics anyway. The song of the year will be awarded to Macklemore’s Same Love. Aside from its obvious representation of a colossal shift in culture, the merits of this work are numerous. Its tone is not angry, but hopeful. He has taken the blame for hate toward homosexuals and spread it across the country, between many likely suspects: conservatives and Christians yes, but also rappers, anonymous Internet commenters, and even grade school children. He then affirms that hate is not a necessary byproduct of religion, but of a detached ignorance common in all of humanity. Macklemore reveals that his own activism is a result of his personal relationship with an uncle who is gay.

Memphis Basketball Court Thoughts on the Memphis Tigers New Court Design

Today Memphis Basketball announced that the court will have a new design for next year.  No, not a simple new paint job, they are going all out with placing the Memphis Skyline on the court.

For college teams, this trend was started a couple years ago when Oregon announced that they were going to have a new court design.  Everyone was excited to see what they would come up with, because heck it is Oregon and who doesn’t love what they put out.  Well lets just say their court design went over just as good as the silver reflective helmets that they tried to wear.  In my opinion it was a total fail.
