I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
Inspiration to many, you will be missed!
So judging by past posts there are some MgoGamers. I am considering getting (or trying to anyways) a new gaming console. I have read some online reviews for Xbox1 & PS4 and was curious if anyone here had aquired either one and what they thought. From my research it looks like the XB1 may be the more all emcompassing entertainment system, with the PS4 best for pure gaming (& some argue better games in the future). Thoughts? Any hangers on Nintendo fans out there?
The one thing worth mentioning is that as far as I understand, neither are reverse compatable (with Xbox 360 games or PS3 games). I don't have either system but would obviously love to play NCAA. Does anyone know if this will change and either system would become compatable? Many thanks
Well, this is VERY OT, but I think it's something that is cool enough to be enjoyed by a majority of the people on the board (hopefully). Mods, if I am guageing this incorectly, please delete. The last random YouTube video I posted, (Key & Peele Football Names Video) was recieved well, but also sports related (kinda). So, here it goes:
This guy named DJ Earworm takes the 25 most popular songs of each year in America, and creates a 5 minute or so video mashup of the songs that is VERY well done in my opinion. I'm a bit of a music nut, so this might only seem cool to me, but I think it's very impressive and well done. He's done it every year since I think 2007.
THIS is the link for this year's video (I have embedding issues).
The artists and songs for the video are included in the description of the video.
For those interested, here are the other years of the United State of Pop videos:
I hope everyone enjoys this! For some reason it makes me feel slightly nostalgic... maybe it's the fact that every year there have been so many good songs, many of which are forgotten about years, months, even weeks later in today's day and age. Society is beginning to have a short term memory... I know for a fact I can't even come close to naming the last 10 Super Bowl or World Series Winners, and I am by every bit of the definition a sports nut. If many of these songs are forgotten about a couple years later, how long can iconic songs of the 1940s, 50s, and 60s carry on before they slip into irrelevancy, lost on the ears to future generations? Luckily we live in an age of technology, and everything from "Then He Kissed Me" by The Crystals and "Roar" by Katy Perry will be saved... All it takes is someone to listen to it.
EDIT: Also: discuss any music, because why not?
I've long heard tales of an eventual purchase of the 16.7 acre Edwards Brothers site by the University. Then I heard that the city would step in and prevent another big chunk of the tax base from bing taken off the tax rolls. The story, with a little more detail, has been in the papers (virtual or otherwise) the past few days.
What do you think aout the whole thing, pros & cons? AND...does anyone know more than what can be read in the news story? Who will get their hands on the property and how will it be used? The Victors for Michigan campaign seems to have a lot planned for the space. Will it happen?
So Christmas is approaching fast and OT season is upon us so I thought this may pass as acceptable. If not the mods can remove it, but given the state of things lately, removing ourselves from discussions about UM football probably isn't a bad thing.
So my wife and I have been married 12 years and together for 20. I used to be really good at buying gifts that she loved but the past two years I have been altogether stumped as to what to get. After 20 years I'm just fresh out of ideas. She seems to have everything she wants but I really want to get her something that shows I put a lot of thought into it....
Soooooo, here's what I have in mind for this thread. Anyone shopping for their wife/girlfriend can let the rest of us in on what you're thinking. Perhaps you'll find a good idea you neevr thought of, or maybe you'll put others onto a great gift idea for their significant other. You can also post some previous gifts that were a particular hit with your wife/girlfriend that maybe the rest of us have never thought of. Anything to help eachother out when trying to make the women who put up with us feel special at Christmas.
For my part, the biggest hit in a while was pretty much a throw away, last second thing that my wife loved. It was a kitchen Aid mix master and she absolutely loved it. I was jsut out of ideas and saw one on the shelf and thought "what the hell...I can give it to my mom if she doesn't like it".
Also, to the ladies out there you can play a vital role as well by telling us what you're looking for this year or what your favorite gifts were. In return we could help you if you were at a loss as to what your boyfiriend/husband might be looking for.
So Mgoblogger's, let's work together and make this Christmas a special one for our significant others.
Now that the regular season is over, I think OT posts are allowed.
Anyhow, anyone see any Cyber Monday deals that stood out to them?
