10 Big Celebrity Baseball Fans (2014 MLB Playoffs Edition)
The 162 game grind is over and the best time of year for baseball fans is here. Soon, we'll all be staring at shots of big time celebrities in the stands at Yankee Stadium...

What's that? The Yankees didn't make the playoffs? Again? Oh, my bad. I just thought with the media talking up Derek Jeter so much that he must have won the Triple Crown and led the Yankees to the division title. Really? He batted .256? You know what, let's move on.

My snark aside, if you want to spot some big time celebrities during the 2014 MLB playoffs this October, you're still in luck even without the Big Apple ...

10 Deceptively Written Songs

10 Deceptively Written Songs
Some songs just aren’t intended for literal interpretation. Some of the best-written songs are actually best interpreted figuratively. The 10 songs gracing this list are written cleverly, in a deceptive fashion. In other words, the lyrics (and sometimes title) transcend what’s literally being said. These 10 aren’t ‘classic’ examples – all are contemporary – but, the figurative, deceptiveness is definitely notable.

1) Hozier, “Take Me To Church" (Hozier, 2014)

Sure, the biblical book Song of Solomon is something else, but it’s highly doubtful that Hozier’s “Take Me To ...

Rap IS the gift that keeps giving. Why? Well, for every rap song not filled with filth, there are numerous others that are.

5 Big-Time Rappers Whose Stock Needs A Lift

Sometimes artists go through a dry spell. In rap in particular, hotness just doesn’t last forever. I mean, wouldn’t LL Cool J still be a hot commodity commercially if that were the case (no shade LL, no shade)? Here, I have identified five big-time rappers who need good things to happen for them in the near-future/future. One or two names may be surprising, but there is a rationale for all five. Hear a bro out!

Reason for being here: Inconsistent albums in the 10s; ‘less fire’ where rhymes are concerned

Man, how I hate to put T.I. on this list. The ATL MC is one of my favorites,...

Honda. Ford. Chevy. These are all household names. We see them every day driving to work, or while going to grab a cup of coffee on the corner, or from our office window. They don't do anything special to really grab your attention - they just exist to get us from point A to point B. And for most of us, that's just fine.

But for those who can afford it, vehicles offer something else - status. And those vehicles are fast and loud, and they grab -no- command attention wherever they go. Whether it's through sleek, formula 1-like styling, or monstrous engines that roar like lions and move like...

The 10 Most Disappointing Albums of 2013

December 26th, 2013 11:00am EST
Britney Jean
Throughout 2013, I’ve had the opportunity to review lots of albums.  Some were extremely special (Vampire Weekend, Modern Vampires of the City among ‘em), while others were D-I-S-A-P-P-O-I-N-T-I-N-G. Not to be a negative noodle or kill anyone’s happy vibe, but sometimes artists lay an egg… a really rotten one.   Not every album here is just awful, but contextually, they didn’t quite live up to the hype.  Some were rotten eggs though!

It hasn’t been the epic fail of one annoyingly stupid Justin Bieber, but he’d have to go a long ways to reach that hot mess…  But basically Weezy decided to address his fans via everyone’s beloved free speech vehicle of twitter about going harder in the future.  To his credit, at least he realizes that he lost his Weezyness in 2013.  I mean, after hearing and reviewing I Am Not A Human Being II, I left my copy right on iTunes, Best Buy, etc. (catchy my drift).  And have I missed it?
