Monday night the ever anticipated powderpuff game was played out as the senior veterans took on the juniors in what turned out to be a very heated and entertaining match up. After winning the coin toss, the junior squad scored within the first few seconds into the game. After that quick touchdown, it was a catch-up game played by the seniors from there on out. However, they managed to tie it before the end of the half and went into the locker room with a boost of confidence and motivation. Coming back out onto the field, however, they were unable to convert their first offensive possession and when put up against the senior defense, the juniors scored yet another touchdown to put the seniors in a deficit they could not come out of. Within the last few minutes, the juniors scored their final touchdown and sealed the victory.
The annual Country Music Awards is a viewing ritual for a good majority of the American population and for some is a dreaded night of never ending tweets and Facebook posts about a genre they find completely repulsive. Nonetheless, it is a widely viewed broadcast and recognizes some of the biggest stars of today’s music industry. Every year the awards are so predictable, one can pretty much tell you before the show who is going to win what. Taylor Swift, Lady Antebellum, and the most played on pop radio stations along with country radio stations will take home something as well. This year that group was The Band Perry.
This week, hip hop superstar Drake’s Take Care leaked eight days before its actual release date. The download went viral on November 6 and non-stop downloading has been going on since then. It wasn’t long ago that a “leaked album” was one of the worst things that could happen in an artists career, however lately it has done great things for ratings and record sales. J. Cole‘s album Cole World: A Sideline Story leaked a week early and then came in at number one. Since then, there’s been talk that positive reception to his leak spurred sales. And I can confidently say that the same reaction will come with the leak of Drake’s new album as well.
