Washington Redskins 2012 Draft Evaluation

1 - Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor 3 - Josh LeRibeus, OG, Southern Methodist 4 - Kirk Cousins, QB, Michigan State 4 - Keenan Robinson, ILB, Texas 5 - Adam Gettis, OG, Iowa 6 - Alfred Morris, RB, Florida Atlantic 6 - Tom Compton, OT, South Dakota 7 - Richard Crawford, CB, Southern Methodist 7 - Jordan Bernstine, DB, Iowa
The Redskins walked out of the 2012 NFL Draft with 9 selections. 2 QB’s, 3 OL, 2 DB’s, 1 LB, 1 RB were taken.
Starting with Griffin, this was a widely unanimous pick. The Redskins got the most dynamic player in the draft, and he’s a Heisman-winning QB. Griffin has a tremendous deep-throwing game and a great ability to throw on the run. His charisma is as much a part of his selection as his talent, as the Redskins need a face for the franchise to go along with being their franchise QB.
Josh LeRibeus is a guy that not many Redskins fans know much about, and a guy that absolutely nobody had the Redskins taking, especially in the 3rd round. The fans also doubted the Kerrigan and Jenk…

The Gospel of Luke

Luke 1I think, therefore I am.

1In the era of great tumult, humanity suffered its greatest loss: the war with self. 2The species never thrived on material and consumption more in any era than its end, but as the old saying goes, "too much of anything can kill you."
3Of course, the law of Natural Selection states, only the strong survive.4Charles Darwin's law was applicable in this instance as all others. 5The select few who were prepared to deal with catastrophe found way to prosper and maintain. 6Admittedly, they were aided by the availability of resource and nutrition. 7The land was not barren. 8Humanity did not die of thirst, starvation, or apocalyptic physical destruction of Earth. 9Humanity died because they were not willing to do what was necessary to survive... learn.
10This also is not at all about near extinction, rather devolution. 11People became so dependent on apathy that their blissfully ignorant lives became worthless. 12The great thinkers, John and Luke, …

Deion Sanders Gets Attacked By Wife, Friend

So Deion jumped on Twitter earlier, with the following tweets:

Deion and Pilar are going through a divorce, so this will help his case. But going on Twitter? And posting a pic? HOLD ON PLAYA!
I could be wrong, but I believe Prime could have beat those bitches up since it was two of them. I mean, he did have his sons there to testify on his behalf that he was simply defending himself.
Weigh in with comments below, let us know what you think Deion should have done. Or …

Coachella 2012 - Tupac Performs (Hologram)

This is either the most amazing or creepiest thing I've ever seen... maybe both. Technology is amazing, we know this. We also know that we've got the technology to digitally place anything anywhere... but I'm shocked because I literally had no clue we were this close to hologram technology at this degree. I mean, Hell... the super-advanced space travelers in Star Wars had a shitty holographic message... that wasn't even represented as a foot-tall... this is a life-size, fully 3D scale of Tupac... complete with tattoos, swinging jewelry, and not one moment of this seemed transparent in any way. Don't believe me? See for yourself.

Track of the Day: Fun - "We Are Young"

I haven't done this in a long time, feels like a great day to bring it back.
Choosing this track, because well, it's awesome. Words cannot express exactly how much I hated the Hell out of this song when I first heard it. It was torturous. I wanted to jam AAA batteries into my ears when it would come on. But after letting it sink in and listening to it some more, I can't fake on just how awesome the track is. Still hard for me to admit just how good it is, but it feels like one of those few-a-year songs that will just be good for a long time. I still hate the song live... but the studio version with the dubbed chorus that sounds cleaner... it's just awesome. Can also thank the WWE for their use of it in the Once in a Lifetime video packages for The Rock and John Cena at WrestleMania XXVIII.

Happy Easter 2012!

Just wanted to wish you all a Happy Easter! I know everyone has a different view on Easter and whether you choose to celebrate the religious reasons or the fact you get a day off or if you treat it as a day to spend with your family and loved ones - enjoy it!

Those of you who read earlier in February, will know that I gave some things up for Lent. I also followed this with a progress report where I'd basically failed everything I decided to give up, except crisps (chips to you Americans). I'm happy to report that I managed to give up crisps for the whole duration of lent (yay me!), and I plan to indulge in a bag later today.. along with my choccie egg!

In aid of new style Lent, I think I'm definitely on time again, and I have been more organised, so that's good too! So yeah, that's me!

Have an amazing Easter everybody!

Knowing When To Stop

It's been some time since I've delved into the psycho-analysis aspect of study & writing for people; I've recently opened Plato back up and it started turning some gears in the ol' hot-air-balloon on my shoulders... and I also gotta credit @_Avant_ (read his shit here) for some of his writing because it has sparked an aspect of my writing I've been missing and it's proper to acknowledge a motivator.
What is Knowing When To Stop? It's when you're about to push buttons that you know you shouldn't push, or you just pushed one, realized it was a horrible idea, and you need to insert the prevent-launch code ASAP.
Everyone has been in one of those situations where they're genuinely just having a good time, but the person(s) they're around just aren't as enthused. You want to joke to lighten the mood and clear the animosity in the atmosphere, or carry on with the conversation as you would any other... there are 3 ways this can go. You tell …
