It's terrible. I went to high school with a couple of 4/5 star athletes. They acted entitled in everything they did, both on the field and in the class rooms. And some teachers let them get away with anything, friendly parents treating them extra well, fellow classmates building up this celeb status. Their heads would get so big, and this was 17/18 year olds. Just wait until 13 year olds are getting the same attention.
Judging by my icon, I'd have to go with The Wire. Rewatching it for the first time at the moment, it's even better the second time.
That's what I'm saying, if he were a down to earth guy his music would be average.
He uses the vocal digitization on purpose, if they wanted it to sound normal, it would be normal. It's a shoutout to his 808s album, when he was broken-hearted about his mom dying , this song is him finally accepting it. 808s used that style on every song I believe.
I'd rather he keep making music though. His insane persona might fuel his musical creativity.
College Dropout, Graduation, 808s and Heartbreak, My Beautiful Dark and Twisted Fantasy are some of the best hip hop albums of the last decade - influencing a new generation of hiphop. Paul McCartney, among other legends, call Kanye one of the best musical artists out there.
Also, some he's produced hundreds of well known songs. If Kanye wasn't the egotistical jackass Kanye, he wouldn't keep coming out with great material. It's all in his persona.
People should use gfycat instead. They use HTML5 and are much smaller in file size and load much faster.
Also, didn't IMGUR recently change the way they host gifs as well?
Tonight and tomorrow morning are not on NSD, which is what he/she was saying -- no reason to take off work on Wednesday.
It doesn't always have to be giving cash to players. OSU has just as many and just as powerful (or more) of those "friends of the program" than any school in the SEC.
No big school is a saint, and you're oblivious if you think OSU is no different.
I have first hand accounts of some violations occurring in the past 5 years at OSU, ones that you could probably put a $ amount on as being 30k or so worth of benefits. It wasn't giving anyone cash, cars, or homes, but it would technically be illegal in the eyes of the NCAA, even if it's just trying to give a kid an opportunity to go to college that would never have had the opportunity otherwise.
Vol fans, it was a joke. I didn't get no where near 50k.— Feeno (@ArianFoster) January 30, 2015
Anybody that went to college w me knows I ain't get no 50k lol— Feeno (@ArianFoster) January 30, 2015
Dude's just a troll. He says outrageous stuff like this quite often just to cause a stir. I wouldn't read much into it.
ESPN, as a whole, has been one of the biggest fans of OSU for a long long time. Just look at how much coverage this school gets compared to, say Texas, Notre Dame, or USC. Everyone like to cry foul when one analyst/talking head talks bad about OSU. Don't take it so personal. Sure ESPN actively boasts the SEC, but they are their product, so why shouldn't they? OSU still gets more positive airtime than any school besides Alabama football and Kentucky/Duke basketball (two programs that deserve the attention, they are incredible dynasties). The Ohio vs. the world attitude is quite overplayed at this point.
If I'm an 8 year old that lives and Seattle and he's my favorite player . . . I'm devastated that someone I look up to acts like that. I hope he realizes the example he is setting for all the young fans out there.
With that said, media obligations can be pretty ridiculous.
Barring injury, I can't see any team passing up Okafor.
At this point, it wouldn't surprise me if the Browns drafted D'Angelo Russell to play right tackle.
If that's the case then I feel really sorry for Alabama's mens coach these past few years.
Good luck, we're all counting on you.
Just turned the game on and saw the punt return. He is so quick and agile that it looked like he had middle schoolers trying to tackle him. Another electric playmaker incoming.
If it's the play I'm thinking of, Jalin was substituting in so Alabama gets the right to sub as well. Now, it seemed like they took their good old time making the substitution at times and the ref would give them more than enough time to make a change. I don't know exactly how the rules are stated -- just because the other team is allowed to sub shouldn't mean they can take their time while the game clock is running.
This is a good post in and of itself, but we've had 20+ forum threads and multiple articles regarding Harbaugh and Michigan -- these opinions have been reiterated over and over again.
I don't want to say LSU got robbed because they had plenty of opportunities to win, but they still got robbed of 7 meaningful points.
This wasn't Saved by the Bell as we know it. It was the spinoff after Kelly, Slater, Lisa, and Zack all left. I think it was called New Class or something like that.
