Anyone who has ever had pink eye knows how it works. You wake up one morning and your eye feels partially glued shut. The next morning it gets worse. All of a sudden your eye IS glued shut. Then it’s itchy. Then maybe it spreads to the other eye. Then you need some type of eye drops in order to make everything go back to normal.
I don’t remember when it happened, but sometime over the course of the past four years San Francisco became ‘home’ and where I came from became just that. Where there used to be ‘the place I grew up’ and ‘the place I live now’, there is now only San Francisco, my home.
For the sake of time, words, and relevance to this current post, I won’t go into all of the reasons I fell in love with San Francisco, but one of them includes the live music I’ve witnessed over the past few years. It’s something I can’t even fully articulate, but there’s a certain energy present at shows all around this city, and the only way to really know what I’m talking about is to experience it yourself.

Facebook recently turned 10 years old, which by the way is pretty crazy! It got me thinking about my Facebook life, however.

This is the first year in a long time where, early in the season, I can remember having a pretty good idea which two teams would play in the Super Bowl and then those two teams actually making it to the Super Bowl. Aside from maybe the 49ers — who had a fantastic team this year — the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks have seemed like the NFL’s two best teams for pretty much the entire season.

Every year there are several prop bets related to the Super Bowl, ranging from the length of the national anthem to the coin toss to the player who will win the MVP award. But those prop bets are all boring and don’t leave much to the imagination. Continue reading →
Every year at the Grammys there are musicians that win awards that they wouldn’t win based on quality of music alone (relative to their peers). Yet, due to popularity, radio play, and a variety of other factors, a lot of musicians on major record labels take home the hardware, while lesser known — and in some instances — better musicians remain unknown and under-appreciated.
