Thanksgiving Week NBA Preview

Well, it’s finally Thanksgiving…

I’m thankful for my amazing, supportive and hilarious family. I’m thankful for Bagel Gourmet Olé’s Chicken Nachos, my favorite Sunday morning hangover food. But most of all, I’m thankful for this NBA season.

This Thanksgiving week, get excited for the times when you can plop down in front of the TV, loosen your belt buckle, and watch amazing basketball games while your vaguely racist uncle spouts questionable phrases like “Does this TV have a brightness setting? I can’t see the players.”

Here are the games you should absolutely watch this week.

Wednesday, November 26: Thanksgiving Eve

Washington Wizards at Cleveland Cavaliers—7:00 PM

If you haven’t watched any games this season yet, this game is probably a pretty solid place to start your 2014-2015 season education. You will hear the announcers discussing a boatload of topics, but the only one you need to think about right now is: WHEN WILL THE CAVALIERS BE GOOD? Dude, seriously. They honestly suck serious balls to watch: their defense is atrocious, their offense is nowhere near the level it should be, and they are one Varejão injury away from resembling a colander trying to stop water from getting through. LeBron can still take over games, but 6-7 after 13 games isn’t where anyone expected or wanted this team to be. Here’s to hoping they start ripping off wins.

Score Prognostication—Wizards: 95, Cavs: 92. One audience learning how to dougie.

Memphis Grizzlies at Los Angeles Lakers—10:30 PM

Wednesday’s late-night game takes the Timberlake-owned Memphis team and pits them against Kobe’s Lakers.  The Black Mamba, no relation to Beatrix Kiddo, is on pace to set the possession usage record that he already holds.  The real reason to watch this game is to see him take 30 shots, and if it’s a good day, he’ll make 18 of them. If it’s a bad day, the red-hot Grizzlies are winning by 40.

Score Prognostication—Grizz: 84, Lakers: 80. Kobe gets 47 of LA’s 80. Continue Reading


BlogWeeklyJamz: “Life got crisscrossed, totally crossed out”


Electronic – Haezer – Troublemaker ft. Tumi
There is a strange music video trope of children with superpowers but this is super accurate. I was such a little d-bag in Middle School. If I had Matilda-type powers, I would fuck shit up.

Hip-Hop J. Cole ft. Miguel – Power Trip
Miguel is impossible. If he is anywhere near a song it immediately gets hot and bothered.


Indie – Tanlines – Not the Same
The music video is INTERACTIVE. Goddamn. I spent a half hour on this in Starbucks. The thirty year old dude next to me thinks I’m crazy.

BlogWeeklyJamz: “The electric sheep are dreaming up your fate”

After a Winter Break-long hiatus, BlogWeeklyJamz is back. We’ll be adding a new genre to the mix each week, but for now, the first week of non-shopping period, here are five jamz!


Indie – Shugo Tokumaru – Katachi
I cannot play music or sing music or write music, so I inevitably decided that making music videos would be my calling. You just have to like music! And put some colors on a wall! And dress the band in weird hats! … No. This new Shogu Tokumaru video makes it clear that I don’t have the necessary patience to make little cut-outs of wolves and wine bottles.

Jam of the Week – Jakwob ft. Maiday – Fade
I am such a sucker for songs that have loaded silences. Listen to 1:02 and 2:29. That shit don’t play around.
