The Top Fantasy Football Sleepers

The Fantasy Football Sleepers that you shouldn’t sleep on.  DeVante Parker – WR, Miami Dolphins This guy has been popping up on so many 2016 Sleeper lists it’s getting harder to consider him one. That being said, most casual NFL fans haven’t been properly introduced to Parker and the player scouts raved about coming out of college. Even though Parker was hobbled by a foot injury and missed over half of his senior season at Louisville, his ability to stretch the field gave Miami the confidence to make him their…

Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not |a few jewels…

With all due respect to J. Mascis and the legacy he built with Dinosaur Jr. in the 80’s (and in 2007’s Beyond)… I was all but over his more-whiny-than-usual-vocals and melodic lullabies that make up 2009’s Farm album. 2012’s I Bet on Sky was headed in the right direction bringing back fuzzy guitar solos between psych-pop progressions, but Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not brings Dinosaur Jr. back to the throne they’ve earned time and time again. These guys have grown to show they can cradle the indie rock…

The NFL’s Terrible-Horrible-No Good-Very Bad Weekend

Since Roger Goodall was officially announced as the third commissioner of the NFL on August 8th, 2006, precisely 10 years ago today, the NFL has weathered through 522 weekends, almost half of those containing at least one game, and there may not be one as damaging on the league’s image in the previous 521. (Okay, yeah, fine, Rice and Brady will still be worse PR hits than this weekend.) We’ll hit these stories in reverse order of when they happened, because the much larger mistake took place Sunday and I’ll wait to…

Stranger Things: Truly Original Nostalgia

The Skim: Stranger Things just launched on Netflix. This is another installment of their  “Netflix originals.” This one is truly original in the sense that I haven’t seen anything like it. However, it is set in the past is a pastiche to Steven Spielberg’s oeuvre. It also brought back some ET like nostalgia. That and the cassette tapes. (Side note: I had trouble spelling cassette. I’m truly a millennial now.) It’s a horror/thriller set in 1983 and it dropped on Netflix on July 15. It has been gaining quite a bit of traction…

Lil Dicky: A rapper who can tell a story

The Skim: Lil Dicky knows how to tell a story through rap music. But he’s also creative and talented enough to do it in a way that makes you gravitate toward him. He is a lyrical wordsmith that is funny, but he is more than just that. Expect Lil Dicky to command more and more respect in the rap game moving forward. The first time I heard of Lil Dicky was after a Youtube video had concluded and his Sway in the morning freestyle popped up as a recommended video…

Augmented Reality: Pokemon Go is Just the Beginning

The Skim: Pokemon Go is taking the world by storm. It may be because the original gameboy game came out 2 decades ago and 90’s kids were longing to reconnect with their favorite game of all time. However, I think it’s because of how people are getting caught up in what augmented reality will turn into. On the Talking Ventures radio show, co-host Justin Klein said “Pokemon is a fad, but Augmented reality is here to stay.” By definition, augmented reality is a live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world…
