A Love Letter to the 2013/14 Toronto Raptors

I share the exact feelings my friend. Proud to be a part of something that was growing in front of our eyes. This team will never be forgotten by Toronto, by Canada and by the NBA!

6th Man Collective: MONDAY NIGHTS

Today, I received this shirt in the mail.

I ordered it after Game 1 but due to an error (that they handled AMAZINGLY. Thanks Since 95!) I only received it today. I saw the package and immediately felt a wave sadness wash over me. I thought, “Great. What do I do with this now?” But then I stuck with that feeling a bit and thought: What am I actually sad about? And let me be clear, it was sadness not anger. I wasn’t mad over bad officiating, players who supposedly under-performed, or that we were a single play away from facing the Heat in round two. There was zero anger. Why was I sad?

A wave of memories came flooding back: the Raptors improbable win in Brooklyn during the regular season, a road win in Oklahoma City, a franchise high number of wins, a second half of the season where we saw players mature exponentially…

Half Moon Run – Call me In The Afternoon

Everything about this song caught my attention, the catchy chorus, the combination of clean and reverb on the two microphones, that wicked guitar riff, but what impressed me the most was the drummer.

“Call me in the afternoon even byyy one…byyy one”. Damn this is catchy!

Kings Of Leon – SuperSoaker

supersoaker1

It’s been four long years since Kings of Leon has released any new material, and for good measure. In my opinion, their latest album Come Around Sundown (which was released two years after their critically acclaimed album Only By The Night), seemed a bit rushed, misguided and confusing at times. Because of the success garnered from Only By The Night, fans were treated with what I call the “Florence & the Machine Syndrome”, where the album predecessor was much better then the latter. Lucky for us, “SuperSoaker” sounds much like their earlier work prior to Only By The Night.

I’m extremely excited that Kings of Leon are back, not only because of their hard Blue Grass music, but because these boys are talented, very talented.  Here’s to hoping their success doesn’t shadow their music.
