MC Delicious + Da Wig

Black Lips #1 (WATCH): Playing Pinko at Dickies. Not to spoil, but to spoil: Joe doing Yoga, Jared prank firing his booking agent, Cole in a staring contest with a random girl, Ian taking on the name MC Delicious and free-styling behind Joe’s beats.

Black Lips #2 (WATCH): Black Lips Playing B-Ball. Cole = The Wig.

Black Lips/Of Montreal Last Place

Black Lips were all talk leading up to the Converse Band of Ballers basketball tournament. Could four flower-punks from Atlanta even compete with the likes of Jim Jones and and Shawty Lo? Nah, not at all. They came in dead last, tied with another tandem of rockers, Of Montreal. Jim Jones was victorious.

Favorite Video Game of 2009

Introduction
I didn’t get to play too many video games this year, unfortunately. The first few months of ’09 saw very little spare time for me. In fact, time spent gaming has gradually decreased since my freshman year of high school. At that time, I got a job that occupied a sizable amount of time on weekends; in addition, the amount of schoolwork I had shot up big time. As the years passed and school got harder and I got more jobs, free time to game approached nil. That leaves me where I’m at now. I get a chance to play maybe once or twice a month.

Favorite Game
FIFA Soccer 10 – This is the shit! It’s so frustrating to lose (and I do often), but winning is just an amazing feeling because it’s so rare. I’ve found that my favorite team to play as is my ancestral club S.S.C Napoli. Before Napoli, I was a die-hard Bayern Munchen fan (maybe out of respect to the song “Munich” by Editors), but I sort of lost my rhythm playing as them. With Napoli, I got Fabio Quagliarella, who has been absolutely money. He scored three goals for me in one game on normal difficulty. To put something into perspective, it’s rare that I score one goal per game. Obviously, things ended up working out quite well not just because of Fabio, but I got to give him a lot of credit.

House Wastes Time On…NCAA Football?

A House subcommittee approved legislation Wednesday aimed at forcing college football to switch to a playoff system to determine its national champion, over the objections of some lawmakers who said Congress has meatier targets to tackle.

A House subcommittee approved legislation Wednesday aimed at forcing college football to switch to a playoff system to determine its national champion, over the objections of some lawmakers who said Congress has meatier targets to tackle.

The bill, which faces steep odds, would ban the promotion of a postseason NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision game as a national championship unless it results from a playoff. The measure passed by voice vote in a House Energy and Commerce Committee subcommittee, with one audible “no,” from Rep. John Barrow, D-Ga.

Ron Paul is on that subcommittee.

Kidding.
