    27 May 2015 | 12:57 pm
    That’s right. Major food chains, Taco Bell and Pizza Hut, could be giving places like Chipotle a run for its money. In light of Chipotle’s recent decision to become GMO-free, other fast food restaurants are jumping on board. Taco Bell and Pizza Hut are the latest chains to decide that artificial ingredients are a thing of their pasts. This year, both chains, owned by YUM Brands, will commit to new menus where they plan to gradually cut out all “fake,” or artificial ingredients. Artificial flavors and colors will be no more, and instead, things like “black pepper…

  • Review: Elephant Rifle – “Ivory”

    Justin Vellucci
    28 May 2015 | 10:53 am
    This record begins with the uncontrolled wailing of guitar feedback and squalor, later joined by the gasps of a dying piano. And that’s a good place to start. Because, then, it kicks you in the goddamn teeth. Turn it up! Turn it up! “Bone Voyage,” Elephant Rifle’s entry in Noise-Punk Single of the Year, explodes like so many nail-tinged grenades in every direction, the guitar and drums barbed-wired together in rapid-fire syncopation before the former breaks into a screeching hellfire roar. Then, the singer starts to let loose, some bark reminiscent of early 80s hardcore, maybe, and,…

    I could write about the prolific nature of Athens, Georgia native, now New Mexico resident Bill Mallonee or his work with The Vigilantes Of Love or about how he has been one of the leading lights in the roots-rock/Americana movement.  I could, but I won’t – you can find a great deal from Mr. Mallonee and hear it for yourself.  What I want to talk about is his newest album, done with The Big Sky Ramblers – which I believe is his 50th (yes, you read correctly), Lands & Peoples. From the moment the acoustic guitar notes come out of the speakers on “No More Dark…
  • Soul Serenade: B.B. King, ‘Worried Life”

    All of the Kings of the blues guitar are gone now. We lost Freddie King back in 1976, and then Albert King in 1992. The most renowned member of this esteemed trio left us on May 14 when B.B. King died at his home in Las Vegas at the age of 89. B.B. King was one of those people who seem to have been a part of our lives for as long as we can remember. It’s no wonder that we feel that way since his recording career began in 1949, and by that time he had already been a singer in a gospel choir, a performing musician, and a DJ. He had been born Riley B. King on a cotton plantation near the…

    This is not your standard recount of a punk album collector’s purchases and memories of the records he bought over the years; it’s not a compendium of albums all punks (or ex-punks) should have.  What Bob Suren has done is to inject some highly personal and emotionally wrenching anecdotes to go along with the memories of hearing, searching for and either buying or re-releasing certain punk albums of the initial hardcore era from the early ’80’s. Crate Digger: An Obsession With Punk Records takes the reader through his seeking out these records that affected him; the…

    9 Jul 2014 | 10:26 am
    My family didn't go away much in the summer. Everyone seemed to have something going on. The three boys had all-star games, sports camps and football scrimmages. I went to various Girl Scout camps. My sister--who knows what the hell she was doing--probably DIY feather hair extensions with her dolls. There were too many of us too close in age to keep track of. My dad was a teacher, so he was sort of around but held other jobs that didn't leave him entirely free for the summer. My mom worked.Usually, though, one week out of the summer, we'd rent a cabin and go to South Lake Tahoe.

  • Comment on Mad Max: Fury Road – Innocuous Feminism by Caesius

    “It’s like the world treating a fart like a god damned hurricane.” Love the piece. Thank you. Would you be willing to share your thoughts on what type of reaction you might have if the film’s reception had not been quite as vigorous? Although somewhat presumptuous, I imagine it might’ve been a quiet praise of how refreshingly “matter of fact” the film’s world view is on femenism. Am I even remotely close?

    Iris is smart and the actress is great however, the character is portrayed as a pretty, manipulative mean girl. That must be where the hate is coming from, thats why I don’t like her. She’s mean and is a bit of a bully. The creators of the show need to get the character to learn to negotiate with her loved ones in a bit of a kinder way because Barry Allen is super nice, a team player and comprehends self sacrifice. Who wants a nice guy hero to be duped into another mean girl relationship… no one.

    Awesome to have a new one of these! The Peggy bit in the movie was lovely and heartbreaking in equal measure. I really love the MCU and moments like that are why. The stories all interconnect and if you put the time in, you’re rewarded with scenes like that. And the movie doesn’t have to spend any time explaining, you already know all about Peggy and understand exactly what Steve is feeling. So elegant. I also am definitely not a fan of Natasha and Bruce being a thing. That plot was my only problem with the film besides killing off Quicksilver (which really pisses me off!!!) and I…

    it’s extremely weird how ok everybody is with it is my problem, you are saying it isn’t on paper and i don’t understand where you are getting that from? He clearly says Joe is his adoptive father, which in turn makes Iris his adoptive sister. Once again i have friends in a similar situation and both of them say that is a serious no go, and i agree. You can’t just get adopted by somebody and it not be put down on paper, things of this nature are extremely documented and Joe is legally Barry’s father.

Spencer would go on to release a few more albums after her Star Search win and was able to make a comeback with the album Tracie including the single “It’s All About You”.

    OPINION – I was up bright in early this past Sunday morning when my newsfeed on social media declared Queens rapper Lionel Pickens who goes by the stage name Chinx was shot and killed in Queens. As a trapped in the 80’s and 90’s hip-hop/rap fan, I wasn’t familiar with Chinx’s body of work. All I knew was that he was part of French Montana’s “Coke Boys” crew. Once one is associated with the likes of French Montana, then I have zero interests from hearing any music from that circle, thus my reasons for being unfamiliar with Chinx’s music.

Even when you do underhanded stuff to attempt to make the real problem seem like it’s someone else, the fact still remains the true problem is you.

I tested out BRYT Remove, BRYT Night Cream and BRYT Essential Serum. In every BRYT product it uses a formulation called the ‘Advanced Phytoscience System or APS’ this…

  • Taco Bell, Pizza Hut Say Goodbye to Fake Ingredients

    27 May 2015 | 12:57 pm
    That’s right. Major food chains, Taco Bell and Pizza Hut, could be giving places like Chipotle a run for its money. In light of Chipotle’s recent decision to become GMO-free, other fast food restaurants are jumping on board. Taco Bell and Pizza Hut are the latest chains to decide that artificial ingredients are a thing of their pasts. This year, both chains, owned by YUM Brands, will commit to new menus where they plan to gradually cut out all “fake,” or artificial ingredients. Artificial flavors and colors will be no more, and instead, things like “black pepper…

This summer, warm weather and saved-vacation time gives us the excuse to pack our bags for a week and travel states away or even overseas to see a part of the world we’ve yet to explore, and the technology in our pockets has just the key to making trips convenient and exciting.

  • Top Ten Moments of 2015 Billboard Music Awards

    18 May 2015 | 8:21 am
    With a slogan like, “You’ve got to top the charts to make it here,” you know the 2015 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas was packed with three hours of mega-stars and wild live-television moments. Okay, we know more than half of the viewers tuned in to watch Taylor Swift’s world premiere music video for “Bad Blood,” which undoubtedly kicked off a great show with futuristic, hostile women (mostly Victoria’s Secret models and many other familiar faces) with explosives and slow-motion action. But the 2015 Billboard Music Awards had a lot more going for…
  • Why Cooking at Home is So Important

    13 May 2015 | 10:29 am
    Community has always been built around one important thing: food. Eating out has become a tradition for families, especially with so many options to choose from, but Americans are spending more time away from their kitchens and more time standing in line for a burger and fries. According to the United States Healthful Food Council, Americans spend about half of their food expenses eating out, when some of that could be spent in the kitchen at home. Let’s take a look at some reasons why eating in and the company of family and friends around a kitchen table is truly rewarding. 1.

  • Max Mad: Fury Road

    20 May 2015 | 5:19 pm
    I consider pure action movies to be my least favourite movie genre but when I heard about the overwhelmingly positive reviews for Mad Max: Fury Road, it was a risk worth taking. Best case scenario: I’d open up to a genre that I usually avoid. Worst case: I lose a few hours of my life. The film, directed by original Mad Max director George Miller, stars Tom Hardy as Mad Max, a man experiencing recurring flashbacks over the loss of his wife and daughter during the apocalypse. While trying to flee from the War Boys, Max is captured and used as a blood bag for Nux (Nicholas Hoult), who…
  • Work/Life Balance

    19 May 2015 | 7:33 pm
    Should what you do in your own time ever have any impact on your job? Most would say no. I’m sure I used to. Now I believe otherwise, especially if you work in any setting that is public, i.e. you’re seen by the people you’re serving or people know you work where you do. If you do something in public that receives a lot of attention, whether positive or negative, people will remember you. If those same people come to your place of work and see you there, your presence may affect whether they stay or leave. If what you’re remembered for is something negative, that may hinder them…

Avengers: Age of Ultron sees the main cast of the Marvel universe joining forces again with Joss Whedon as director, this time to defeat a threat created from within with the power of Loki’s scepter, which they retrieved from a raid in Eastern Europe.

  • While We’re Young

    5 May 2015 | 9:33 pm
    There’s an age you reach where you come to the sudden realization that you aren’t as ‘cool’ or ‘hip’ as you think, and you can no longer relate to those who are. How you react to that realization depends on how much you value being cool or how you feel about aging in general. The comedy, written and directed by Noah Baumbach, stars Ben Stiller as Josh, a documentary filmmaker who is married to Cornelia, played by Naomi Watts. Josh is approached by Jamie (Adam Driver), an aspiring filmmaker, in a class he teaches and the two form a friendship, despite the…
  • Robin Schulz – Prayer

    1 May 2015 | 5:36 pm
    When Waves became a hit last year for Mr Probz thanks to a remix by Robin Schulz, I was instantly hooked on the acoustic quality of the song overlaid by a light beat that brought out a bass line but also highlighted the charm of the original. It marked the true culmination of electronica and acoustic genres centred around simplicity. Where most dance remixes replace the authenticity of the originals, Robin Schulz embraces them and simply adds to them without altering the songs themselves. Prayer In C, the next hit with Robin’s name on it, had the same qualities. Originally released in…

    28 May 2015 | 6:32 am
    If you’re afraid of spiders then this one may be enough to scare the shit out of you! In an amazing trick using a smartphone, an internet magician has managed to conjure up an eight-legged freak – right into the palm of a woman who suffers from arachnophobia. He places a phone in her hand and swipes across it, causing an image of a spider to walk across the screen. But imagine her horror when the creature then appears to turn up on the back of her hand for real! Her reaction has to be seen to be believed, as she rips off her wig and starts beating the guy who is left in shock.
  • Double take!! Rumer Willis and Demi Moore are like twins in Instagram photo

    27 May 2015 | 5:37 am
    Rumer Willis was once dubbed a potato head by bullies who reckoned she looked like a man – but now she’s the spitting image of her foxy mum Demi Moore. Rumer, 26, posted this image of herself with 52-year-old Demi, causing celeb-watchers to do a double take (Moore is on the right in case you are wondering). Dancing With The Stars champ Rumer wrote on Instagram: “That moment when you realize you are becoming your mother.” Ginger Clam reckons they both look like hotcakes and it’s hard to believe that Demi is double the age of her daughter. Even more amazing is that Rumer recently…

    27 May 2015 | 2:47 am
    How does a woman react when she finds out the man she’s taken to bed literally can’t use his penis? Apparently, she doesn’t always mind. We’ve heard some unusual things here at Ginger Clam but this story is one of the most eye-opening. There’s a dude from Manchester in the UK called Andrew Wardle, 39, who has slept with over 100 women even though he doesn’t have a manhood. That’s right, he’s got no penis. Nada. But he’s got balls we’ll give him that (no genuinely, he’s always had two functioning testicles). Andrew was born with his…

Yup folks, it’s one year since Kim and Kanye tied the knot by getting wed at Fore di Belvedere in Italy.

  • I’m here to **** your wife! Video prankster in outrageous sex stunt

    26 May 2015 | 2:45 am
    We’ve seen a lot of outrageous shit online – but this story really takes things to the extreme. The latest dude to take the internet by storm is a video prankster who calls himself Tyrone. He’s driven audacity to a whole new level by walking up to strangers and telling them that he’s there to have sex with somebody’s wife. Now, if a 5ft 4in skinny guy with glasses was to do this, he might end up in a coffin, so it’s convenient that Tyrone is a giant of a man. Unfortunately for the victims this means that there is limited scope for retaliation, and in most cases the…

Let’s approach the pot slowly now. That’s the shitty end of love Piku is a canvas of guts that adroitly camouflages the gut wrenching. It is cinema that reflects our deepest innards (kind of literally) and attempts to arrive at the dénouement via the bathroom. Which is fine.

In fact of late, most of the time I find myself feeling as if the pin to my grenade and I will be going in opposite directions. Any time now. The title was simply designed to get eyeballs, evoke twisted images and generally get a listicle (unlike ‘testicle’, this word is very recent and yet to find a place in our dictionaries) going. But then again, in a moment of existential floundering (I am from Calcutta, I am legally allowed to have moments like this) I realised that maybe…

Especially when all you get to drink is country, with lemon that you have to buy from the counter to squeeze into that country. Hooch is a dreamer, though. He dreams with his eyes open, half open and even closed. All he ever does is dream. He lives with his rotting liver and his constant companion the One Dance Kid, in a dusty western parody of Shanti Town. He isn’t gay or anything. Just a bloke in the wrong cloak. Anachronistic…

    Today is the day to watch Alien and Aliens.   This may not be an original idea but I am realizing that it’s less a monster movie than I remembered (I think I was ten the first time I saw it) and more of a statement about workers getting royally screwed by the indifferent “man.”   I do recall this theme is more overt in the sequels but those are set for later this aft.   I am gathering that the orig. is just one really shitty office space, down to the cold coffee cups and fluorescent lights.   Then again, I am on a lot of Benadryl.

    The Department Of Justice is rumored to be looking into Apple’s business practices concerning streaming music. Why would the DOJ be investigating? According to The Verge, Apple has been pushing the music labels to remove the free tier from streaming services. As Spotify negotiates to renew their licenses with music labels, Apple is lobbying music labels to not include a license for a free music tier anymore. If successful, this would greatly reduce the competition when Apple releases the new Beats Music. To date, Spotify is the most successful streaming service with 60 million users. 15…

  • 21 Things I Learned at 21

    28 May 2015 | 9:28 am
    Being twenty one was a wild ride. Aside from the fact that I can now drink Fireball in excess and not worry about getting arrested for it, the real world really opened itself up to me. I have dated different types of men in varying stages of their lives. I have attended black tie affairs with some of the wealthiest people in the world. I have been and seen places I never dreamed of going. And I have a learned a great deal about who I am as a person. And I am now here to present you all with some of the most important life lessons I’ve learned…thus far.   1. Parents are real…
  • The 1st Annual: RuPaul’s Drag Convention, A Queen’s Event 2015

    27 May 2015 | 1:15 am
    RuPaul’s first annual drag convention Rupaul’s DragCon was a feast for the eyes and imagination.   Walking into the the event, I couldnt help but giggle as I saw an array of bright pink signs pointing out where to check in and where to go after, the signs read ‘Shantay this Way!‘ and it was like following hot pink bread crumbs to the queens ball. Shantay This Way! Then I entered the convention doors to a stream of glitter and glam ensembles, stiletto heels, big lashes, and even bigger personalities. Fashionista Sista’s Host Erica Moore @BowToxic is pictured…
  • The Top 10 Times Jessa Johansson Was Your Spirt Animal

    27 May 2015 | 12:11 am
    As much as I love the glamorous lifestyles of the women from Sex and the City there is something about the ladies on Lena Dunham’s HBO show GIRLS really hit home. The show centers around four 20-somethings living the dream in New York City, one mistake at a time. My favorite character on the show is the free-spirit hipster, Jessa. And I felt a bit torn about what my first post should be and then I thought that introducing myself in one huge metaphor would be the most exhausting, yet informational way to do it. Because even though Jessa is an extreme character… she and I have a…

  • Review: Mad Max: Fury Road

    Scott Tremper
    15 May 2015 | 12:32 pm
    What a lovely film. We’re currently living in the pinnacle ages of blockbuster action movies. In the past two months we’ve already gotten Furious 7 and The Avengers: Age of Ultron. By the end of the month we’ll have San Andreas, and the rest of the year is smattered with a couple of Marvel flicks, a new Star Wars, and more. While I’ll definitely see (and probably enjoy) almost all of these films, they do share one common denominator: a heavy, heavy reliance on CG elements. Mad Max: Fury Road, however, brings us a pure action film that lives and thrives on it’s…
  • Review: Wolfenstein: The Old Blood

    Scott Tremper
    13 May 2015 | 10:48 am
    Played on PS4 (Also on Xbox One & PC) Will killing Nazis ever get old?  Last year’s release of Wolfenstein: The New Order surprised a lot of people. Typically known just for their standard FPS fare, this was a Wolfenstein game that not only had excellent gameplay, but also featured an excellent story. And now, just under a year later, we have a standalone expansion in the form of The Old Blood. Taking place in an alternate history universe, The Old Blood serves as a prologue to The New Order. It has a story the weaves together fluidly, yet consists of two separate acts, mostly to…
  • Preview: Splatoon

    Scott Tremper
    11 May 2015 | 9:27 am
    Pop, pop. Splat, splat. Cha-ching. Nintendo has had a lot of faith in their first-party titles as of late. While much of the games industry is under fire for last minute (or even post-release) review embargoes, Nintendo has always been ahead of that curve. Despite their slow pace in Wii U sales, they create fantastic games, and get them in the hands of critics often weeks before their release. For the most part, this is a sign of their excellence (we’ll ignore you, Mario Party 10), and with their upcoming new IP, Splatoon, Nintendo has taken that faith to the next level. While a beta…
  • Apple Watch Unboxing

    Scott Tremper
    24 Apr 2015 | 3:19 pm
    The Apple Watch has arrived! For the last several years, I’ve loved being at the forefront of things I’m interested in. Whether it’s seeing a movie opening day, or playing a game after getting it at a midnight release. The same goes for tech. Current-gen consoles were a day one purchase for me, and I regret not picking up a Wii U earlier. The same can be said for me and Apple products. For the last few generations, I’ve had new MacBooks and iPhones at launch, although let’s forget the mishap with my business line that left me waiting for my iPhone 6 Plus to…
  • Review: Ex Machina

    Scott Tremper
    24 Apr 2015 | 11:52 am
    Alex Garland’s directorial debut is a fantastic science fiction flick. The films written by Garland have been some of my favorite for the last decade and more. Sunshine and Dredd are two of my all-time favorite films. Almost all of his work has been critically received, and he’s even written one of the better stories for a video game, with Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. And now with Ex Machina, Garland has stepped into the realm of directing. The film follows Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson), a talented programmer working for the film’s version of Google, called Bluebook.

    Vincent Krasauskas
    23 May 2015 | 2:54 am
    I recently had a word with Stewart from the New Generation Project Podcast, who was kind enough to answer a few questions about wrestling’s past, the podcast’s future, and Alan Partridge references. Your podcast starts at King of The Ring 1993, when ‘Hogan jobbed to fire’ and subsequently left the WWF. What is it about a post-Hulk Hogan, pre-Attitude Era WWF that made you want to study this particular period in wrestling history? Well, the idea initially came out of being a fan of the Attitude Era Podcast and then OSW Review. I probably listened to every OSW episode in about…
  • Five Reasons I Couldn’t Get Into EVE Online

    Vincent Krasauskas
    19 May 2015 | 1:35 pm
    Now and then whenever I’m looking for a new game to play, I load up Steam and spend anywhere between 15 and 30 minutes at a time carefully perusing my recommended games. (Recommendations. Can anyone tell me a good example of a site that has the “if you like that, you’ll love this” feature? I’m yet to be dazzled by anything. Especially MovieLens.) More often than not I close the window down again and resign myself to another hour or so on Farmscapes with a podcast playing on my headphones, but one game I keep coming back to and hovering over is the spacefaring MMO, EVE Online.

  • A Song For Saturday Special

    Vincent Krasauskas
    16 May 2015 | 8:08 am
    Lagwagon – May 16 You’ll either find this cool, or find me completely lame, but every year on this day I’m reminded of a really cool song simply because of today’s date. You may have first heard May 16 by the American pop-punk band Lagwagon on Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 – in fact, perhaps you could be tempted to break out the PS2 (or semi-faulty backwards compatible PS3) today to play a few rounds in tribute.   Elsewhere, on the THPS2 soundtrack there are some great songs alongside some…not so great ones. For every Bad Religion gem there’s an ill-advised Papa Roach…

    So come on, which one’s your favourite? Mr Burns? Smithers? Flanders? Well, as of the 27th season of The Simpsons, if they’re still in the show they won’t be voiced by Harry Shearer. The founding cast member and bass player in Spinal Tap tweeted today that he was leaving the animated adventures of America’s best-known family; news backed up by an email received by CNN Money from showrunner Al Jean.

    Vincent Krasauskas

    I’m well aware of the regularity of opening a blog post by saying how much I loved David Kushner’s Masters of Doom; the story of id Software’s struggles to produce landmark games against a backdrop of censorship and developing technologies in the 1990s, so when I found a book by the same author about the minds which brought you the Grand Theft Auto series, I was ready for another great exploration of seminal games creators and their biggest detractors.

I suspect my parents had moments when they feared their parentage would be inadequate and fail me. I’m a bit scared, too, that I won’t be a good enough parent; and the kid’s still a month from being born! Maybe every parent who is up to the task of parenting feels this fear. I don’t know. I’m only one person. I guess the easier question is if any parent has ever been 100% confident that he or she would do a perfect job of raising a…
  • Musings on Faith and Existential Depression

    22 Apr 2015 | 6:05 pm
    “I’m going where there’s no depression – to a better land that’s free from care”   Uncle Tupelo hipped me to this song. The ending of this famous lyric of “No Depression In Heaven”, a song attributed to AP Carter of the Carter Family, has the chorus finishing with “I’ll leave this world of toil and trouble, my home’s in heaven – I’m going there.” Carter was definitely inferring about The Great Depression of the U.S. Economy in the 1930’s as well as the standard God-fearing man in a world of sin, yet I always like to look at it from another more modern…

To them, making time to teach me to become a decent adult was not an inconvenience. I never knew they did not have time to contribute to my upbringing, because when they did not have time, they made time. I never knew any different. When our son is born, and throughout his life, I…

The series is amazing, one that has me sitting on the edge of my seat. So why is it possibly leaving? The answer is in the New Television. You see, TV is dead the way we know it.

    If there’s a playbook out there for screenwriters in Hollywood for creating the modern disaster movie, San Andreas runs every single play from it without deviation. It’s spectacular to look at, as well it should be thanks to today’s top-dollar special effects and a budget big enough to bring them all to bear, but it’s so predictable that even particular lines of dialogue can be heard coming by even the most casual of movie goer, and the lack of anything really new robs the film of any real impact aside from the visual.

Steven Spielberg’s thrilling shark adventure, released on June 1, 1075, changed the face of Hollywood and holds up marvelously today, thanks in no small part to the performances from Roy Scheider, Richard Dreyfuss, and the steely-eyed madness of Robert Shaw’s shark hunter, Quint.

  • Mumford & Sons Revisited

    20 May 2015 | 7:08 am
    Image provided by Allmusic Mumford & Sons rocketed from obscurity to fame pretty quickly. Their first two singles engaged an international rock audience and permeated the mainstream before a lot of fans even realized who they were. The band’s songs quickly turned up in all manner of TV and film placements and radio formats of all stripes found room for them. Mumford & Sons kicked off a “folk rock” revival, throwing open the doors of rock radio for acts embracing acoustic guitars, ukuleles and banjos instead of their plugged-in cousins. And then they took a sharp turn and did the…

  • Bernie Williams's Number Retired

    25 May 2015 | 6:09 am

Williams was a member of the Yankees in all of his sixteen seasons in Major League Baseball and was a member of four World Series Championship Teams.  He would win the American League Batting Title in 1998, the Silver Slugger Award in 2002 and won the Gold Glove Award four consecutive seasons from 1997…

  • RIP: Marques Haynes

    22 May 2015 | 4:26 am
    Former Harlem Globetrotter and Basketball Hall of Famer, Marques Haynes, died today at the age of 89 of natural causes in Plano, Texas. Haynes was regarded as one of the greatest, if not the greatest dribblers in basketball history, having been estimated at being able to dribble six times per second, but that was not all he could do on the court as he was regarded as a great basketball player.  Marques Haynes would join the Harlem Globetrotters in 1947 and emerge as the team’s marquee attraction.  Haynes would stay with the team until 1953, but not to join the National Basketball…

    The NASCAR Hall of Fame has announced the new members of their latest Hall of Fame Class and the relatively new Hall is continues its expansion with class and prestige. The class (in our eyes anyway) is headlined by Bobby Isaac, who we had ranked at #2 on our last list.  Isaac is a posthumous induction after passing away at the age of 45 from a heart attack.  He had 37 Sprint Cup Wins. Terry Labonte, who for many is the headliner of this year’s class, will join Isaac.  Labonte was the Sprint Series Champion in both 1984 and 1996.  Notinhalloffame.com had Labonte ranked…

  • DC Looking at Chris Pine for ‘Wonder Woman’ Cast

    Bobby Bernstein
    28 May 2015 | 11:03 am
    It looks as though Warner Bros. and DC are looking to add Chris Pine to the Wonder Woman cast as the two parties are currently in negotiations, according to THR. If the deal goes through, Pine will play the role of Steve Trevor, Wonder Woman’s love interest, whom first appeared in All-Star Comics #8 in 1942 as a WWII pilot when he crashed onto Paradise Island, home of the Amazons. With the DC New 52, Trevor obviously got an update as well, and is now the head of A.R.G.U.S. (Advanced Research Group for Uniting Super-Humans). Wonder Woman is being directed by Patty Jenkins.

    The Way I See It

  • Feeling Fat

    16 May 2015 | 12:23 pm
    GETTING FITStep By StepFor those of you that know me, you know that I have been both very large on the weight scale, and last year I was below 200 lbs - which was an accomplishment. At the time, it was really more out of a desire to win a competition. My wife and I attended a gym and they had a competition. The winner won a large volume of money so I found the motivation there. In order to win, I had to lose the highest volume of body fat percentage based on a scale and then it went to votes for overall most change. At the time, I felt like my body really wasn't changing much, although I…
  • Battered People - Fearful Police - Violated Rights

    14 May 2015 | 3:12 pm
    THE PROBLEM WITH POLICEand what to do about itSwat at the Baltimore Riots 2015I have never been a big fan of the police. Most of that is stigmatized from the upbringing I had and the fact that I've never been in a situation where I have needed the police to feel "protected" or "served" in any capacity.More often than not, as a child and teen, I experienced it the opposite way around. In third grade I tripped a kid at the bus stop who asked me to so he could slide along some ice. I did, and he got a bloody nose. The next day the police came to the bus stop, put me in handcuffs in front of…

    Our world is increasingly pushing toward the mobile interface and ease. This comes in the face of working harder and experiential interfaces. While every progression in the human experience is very personal to a generation and beneficial, there are definitive drawbacks to moving in any given direction also.I recently was at a restaurant in Chicago with my family, and as we are waiting for our food I notice this gal sitting in a booth with another guy there and she isn't even speaking with him. She is taking selfie after repeated selfie. The selfie itself didn't seem all that bad to me. It was…
  • Fathers Don't Have Enough Say About Abortions

    25 Apr 2015 | 2:04 pm
    I recently saw a post online about abortion and I was really provoked into evaluating the situation further.The post was doing the same old debate about how some people argue about abortion and the varying disparities in opinion of what constitutes "life," "rights," and "choice."Ultimately, I think the main problem with any/all childbearing law is that exactly none of those three options are explored fully, and the laws are all unfairly kedged to popular media. Instead of looking at everything from a slanted viewpoint, let's evaluate the topic of abortion from these three standpoints and show…
