Feel Me

While not terribly substantive, Tyga's latest single, "Feel Me" featuring Kardashian/Jenner clan family member Kanye West, is pretty catchy. It's one of those songs that I'd roll down the windows and crank to just vibe to down the road.

I have about a dozen photos to share from activities back on Jan. 5-6.

Drinkin' Too Much

The faux-country star Sam Hunt has struck again! Hunt, who currently masquerades as a country star, apparently wants to be an R&B hit now, as he recently released a single called "Drinkin' Too Much." I thought for about 40 percent of the song that it was Drake, until I rechecked my Spotify. Nope. Definitely that no-good Sam Hunt. Any right-minded country fan or  even R&B fan would condemn this loser. You are not talented. Please smash your guitar and go back to whatever hell spawned you.

OK. Anyways, Here are some photos from Dec. 29-Jan. 3.

To Be Without You

I really enjoy music, and all kinds. Every genre pretty much. I like emo, pop punk, country, rap, classic rock, oldies, pop, you name it. However, there are certain artists that just rub me the wrong way. One of those is the Neil Young-wannabe Ryan Adams. Not only is his name one 'B' short of a legend, his voice is one hair short of a dog turd. His generic guitar backgrounds, awful vocals and clearly high-school level production are pure crap in my ears. He covered the smash album "1989" by Taylor Swift awhile back, and just ruined it. The single "To Be Without You" isn't any different.

Anyways, I have 18 photos to share from sports in the span of Dec. 22-28.
