DouBle B’s CFB Picks 2014 – Week 10: Thursday Edition

Distractions abound…

Welcome to DouBle B’s CFB Picks 2014 Week 10 Edition, lets start out with…

Week 9 Recap (with last week’s rank in parenthesis):

By my count I went 14-3 last week, you can see those picks HERE and HERE.

Despite the rankings disparity (24) LSU‘s 10-7 dub over (3) Ole Miss wasn’t the biggest shocker in the world. Tiger Stadium holds about 102K fans, and it has seen its home squad win against better teams that Ole Miss. I didn’t pick LSU, but I was close.

(20)USC couldn’t quite pull off the “upset” against (19) Utah in what was a fantastic game, final score 24-21.

I also picked Oklahoma State over (22) West Virginia, that didn’t work out. 34-10.


Watch The Final Play of Each of the Last 49 World Series

Oh those uniforms…


 With game 7 of the World Series having kicked off (as of this time its 2-up in the second inning), I thought it would be a good time to share this awesome video that Major League Baseball put together that shows the final play from each of the last 49 World Series (none of which were won by the Seattle Mariners, damn).

By the way, due to unforseen circumstances, I may be unable to finish the Wednesday Video Dump today. It’ll be done tomorrow night at the latest.

A Midnight Session with Sunset Overdrive – #LetsGetTwitchy

 Insomniac GamesSunset Overdrive releases tonight at midnight PST. I have it downloaded already and planning to stream my first gameplay attempts sometime around then. Hope its worth it.

You can watch gameplay highlights from this and other games on Twitch by CLICKING HERE. In the near future we are planning to really work on a new YouTube page too where we’ll post all our gameplay / highlight videos. So if you don’t have the time to watch it live, those are some great ways to see what we’re up to.



Ryan Adams’ Self Titled – #MusicMonday Co-Album of the Week

 “Got nothin to say, got nothin’ to prove”
– I Just Might


I’ve always been a fan of Ryan Adams, although I hadn’t really heard much of his music until…like yesterday. Back in the day my dad had some Whiskeytown albums and Adams really stood out on those (I especially like their cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams). It wasn’t til Old School came out on DVD and I watched it roughly eighty times that I found out his actual name. Adams’ song To Be Young (Is To Be Sad, Is To Be High) was the first song played in that comedy classic by the way.

I’ve had a couple musician friends, who don’t know each other, gush over Ryan Adams latest album in recent weeks. I really trust their opinion and knew I had to give it a go, and so yesterday finally gave it a listen and I’m very much hooked (hence the live version of Kim I posted).

Ladies and gentleman, Ryan Adams self-titled album, released September 8th, 2014.

Favorite Tracks:
Gimme Something Good
My Wrecking Ball
I Just Might

Revisiting Green Day’s Nimrod – #MusicMonday Co-Album of the Week

“I’m just a grouch sitting on a couch,
The world owes me so fuck you”
– The Grouch


The other day I was at work driving a Porsche that I could barely fit in. I’m a sizable dude, so squeezing into some of the vehicles that I do at my job (I’m a valet/bellman at a ridiculously nice hotel in Seattle) can be a sizable strain. But in this situation I was almost tempted to stay in the car for an extra minute. The song on the radio was “Hitchin’ a Ride“, from Green Day‘s Nimrod album, my favorite from the band (although Dookie has to be a close second).

Hearing that song for the first time in years made me think about how much I listened to that album back in 1997 (it was released September 22nd of that year). Hell, I didn’t like Hitchin’ a Ride back when, and eventually grew to actually dislike the album for a minute after I saw “Time of Your Life” on the Seinfeld finale.  But now I remember. Songs like “The Grouch“, “Platypus – I Hate You” and “Prosthetic Head” had me then, have me now.

Its kinda funny, over the last week or two I’ve been checking out Spotify‘s Top 100 list, which is more or less all new to me (yeah I was pretty anti-radio for a while there) cause I wanted to see what kind of newer music I would like (which there was a lot more than I expected), and this album sounds pretty fuckin’ hardcore in comparison to whats big these days.

Anyways, here it is: Greenday’s Nimrod, the co-album of the week (along with Ryan Adams self-titled that I’m about to post too):

Ryan Adams – Kim (Live on Fallon) – #MusicMonday (or near enough)

With all the trouble i’m in…


 Ryan Adams performed a web exclusive version of Kim, from his recently released self-titled album, on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

It, and the album its part of blow my mind. I needed to slap something up for Sunday after a day of work and celebrating a Seahawks victory, and I couldn’t begin to think of something better I’ve listened to today.


Hawk’s 2014 NFL Picks Week 8 Edition

Seahawks look to move above .500 against a tough Carolina squad, and then theres the rest of the league…

Welcome to The Hawk’s 2014 NFL Picks Week 8 Edition.

Since The Hawk, who is still enjoying himself in Belize, started making his picks in week 2 he has a 52-29-1(? I don’t even know how to count a tie, really) overall record, including a 10-3 mark last week (note that he generally doesn’t pick the Thursday Night games cuz he’s workin’ hard at his two jobs).
