Comment 26 Mar 2015

Yeah I plan on going to see Glass Animals up in Cleveland this summer, and I think Modest Mouse is performing in Louisville this summer, and if that's the closest they get to Columbus, I'll be making the drive. 

Comment 26 Mar 2015

This, so much this. It's not just Millennials that are drawn in by their devices, it's people of all ages. 

Comment 26 Mar 2015

Out of place? No, my generation is continually judged by Baby Boomers, whose generation has no moral ground upon which it can or should stand. 

Comment 26 Mar 2015

Note the part where I specifically addressed Baby Boomers? Reading comprehension, you should try it sometime. 

Comment 26 Mar 2015

I believe that My Morning Jacket is opening for Third Eye Blind in Columbus this summer. My current need to see list: Modest Mouse, Glass Animals, Beirut, City and Colour. 

Comment 26 Mar 2015

First: Third Eye Blind, saw them my senior year of high school in downtown Raleigh, they were brilliant. 

Best: Portugal. The Man (at the Newport in 2012, these guys are amazing live), or Kenny Wayne Shepherd (best guitarist I've ever seen live, he's not on the same level as Page or Hendrix, but he's damn close). 

Honorable Mention: Iron Maiden, simply put, they rocked. 

Comment 26 Mar 2015

Meh. We still play sports, play instruments, take part in after-school clubs/activities. Technology/social media has made communication across long distances much easier, but as someone born in the 90s, trust me, there's still loads of socialization and interpersonal discussion that isn't transmitted through an electronic device. As a Millennial I know how to speak with someone as well as even write one of those fancy things called a letter. 

What worries me is older generations worrying about the socialization/practices of my generation, when maybe it would be more apt if older generations focused more on not fucking things up in general, like running this country (Note: this is not a hot take on the current administration, but rather an observation of the fact that all of the Baby Boomers in office suck ass at what they're doing, and have for some time.)

Comment 26 Mar 2015

This. Every generation thinks the one succeeding it will be worse than their own, when in reality most generations are roughly the same. It's all just fueled by perception bias. 

Comment 07 Feb 2015

Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Alice in Chains, The Who and Hendrix would probably be my top choices. 

Comment 06 Feb 2015

Release Weber from his NLI if he so wishes, it would be total horseshit if OSU held him to it after Drayton left. This comes off as extremely sketchy on OSU's part, if Drayton withheld such information from Weber that is. Meyer/Drayton have some explaining to do, especially if Meyer refuses to release Weber from his NLI.

Comment 17 Jan 2015

JT wins the starting job by fall camp. He beat out Jones once, and while I understand why everyone is enamored with Jones, he isn't the passer or runner that Barrett is. Sure he is built like a tank, and has a cannon of an arm, but he isn't nearly as threatening as Barrett is in the zone read, and every time he throws over the middle I still cringe. Looking at each player's adjusted QBR (takes into account quality of defense faced), Barrett still has the highest of the three QBs. Barrett also had the 2nd highest efficiency rating in the entire country, second only to Mariota, as a RS Freshman. 

Barrett will be the starter, Jones the back up and Miller will be an H-back (who knows if he'll be able to throw again?)

Comment 20 Nov 2014

Sounds like Johnson's credit is going to be irreparably damaged, but he still has many years of prime earning ability left, so he'll still likely retire well off, but this certainly serves as an example for young athletes, get an agent and hire an accredited financial advisor. 

Comment 19 Nov 2014

And OSU beat a 2-loss team that has losses @Oregon and home to OSU, whereas Miss. State's best win was against a team that lost  @Georgia (drubbed 34-7), home to Texas A&M (awful team), and @Miss. State.

OSU has the best win of any of the 1-loss teams, and the worst loss. For me, it can go either way, and I'm perfectly happy with them ranked at #6.

"that banged a drunk girl "-He raped her as she was unconscious. 

"if anyone on here would like to put themselves and the people they loves mistakes in life on here for the rest of us to judge well you just go ahead"- Well, luckily, I don't rape people, nor does anyone that I associate myself with. 

"a proper Christian would not make such judgements."- Well as a Jew I'll go ahead and judge all I want to then, also a "proper Christian" wouldn't rape an unconscious girl. 

Comment 13 Nov 2014

Well, as a young adult (21), that has engaged in plenty of stupid shit and continues to do so at that, I can certainly state that I have never raped someone. There's a line between adolescent stupidity and criminal activity, and raping someone pretty much crosses that line. Writing his acts off as "adolescent dumb-s#!t" is pretty fucking asinine. 

Comment 13 Nov 2014

He raped her and urinated on her, on tape. That's not a teen making a dumb mistake, that's someone defiling another human's body. How he is allowed outside of a prison cell, let alone allowed to attend high school and participate in school athletics is beyond comprehension. 

And spare me the "He paid/served his time" crap. Tell that to the young lady he raped. I'm sure she'll be very pleased to know that he had to spend 16 months in a juvenile detention program for emotionally/mentally scarring her for life. 

Comment 07 Nov 2014

South Park is the best show on TV, simply because of how it mocks literally every ridiculous belief, practice or fad in our society. It's a brilliant show that continues to get better and better.
