All LSA students are required to take 4 classes of a language (or test out of a certain number, then take the remaining ones to get to the 4th level)

Anthro 101 was9 probably the easiest 4 Credit A I ever had at Michigan. I definitely would recommend it. (it's also a pretty interesting class too)
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Also 247 just reworked his||
Also 247 just reworked his ranking a bit, and his composite score is down to 31, which is a 4*, but right on the cusp of being a 5*.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||It's probably due to||
It's probably due to disparity between each site's rankings and the fact that the 247 ranking is a result of the average of all 4 rankings.
For a simplified example example, a player could be the number two player on every service, giving him an average ranking of two. But lets say every player who is ranked number one by one site, is ranked much lower in the other recruiting sites, giving these other players average rankings much lower than #1. Thus, this player who is the number two player in every ranking is ranked the number one overall in the composite (despite nowhere saying he is number one).
Its probably more or less the same thing for this. While every site ranks him well, but outside of the 5 star range, the consistency of his rankings puts him higher on the composite rankings than some other recruits with more variable rankings.

A 5 star on the composite ranking too.

Never ever ever read comments on the internet. Especially on news sites, ESPN and youtube.
No good ever comes of those comments.

|7 weeks 1 day ago||Seriously. Book Stannis is a||
Seriously. Book Stannis is a lot better than show Stannis. the show runners always have always seemed to have protrayed Stannis in a bad light. But this is wayyyy too far.
But then again, Stannis might do it in the next book, so we dont know for sure.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||All of the book to show||
All of the book to show changes i've written off before, but this is WAY TOO FAR.
Ugh. I hate this so much. FUCK.
what. the. fuck.

I've tried a couple of them, and they're pretty good. Ommegang makes really good beer in general.

I was on reddit and absentmindedly went into a thread of spoilers on it, not realizing it leaked. So much regret. I don't know too much, but enough where I'm really pissed at myself for reading it
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Apparently the episode leaked||
Apparently the episode leaked earlier today. So please, if you've seen it already: NO SPOILERS!
|8 weeks 1 day ago||The only one I can say is||
The only one I can say is better for sure for me would be the Red Wedding episode. I'll have to give it some time to sink in to really be able to look at it objectively (I'm still amped from that battle at the end), but its definitely up there for me.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||The second they mentioned||
The second they mentioned that Long Claw was Valyrian steel in the preview it pretty much confirmed that Dragonsteel=Valyrian steel. Not that I'm surprised at all, but its definitely big to have that confirmation.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Absolutely loved this||
Absolutely loved this episode. The Tyrion-Dany interactions were phenomenal. They nailed the Cersei's scenes, especially the water scene at the end there. And the Hardhome scene was all phenomenal. Probably the best action scene in the series, in my opinion.
Lots of big departures from the books, which usually are kind of hit or miss, but they nailed everything about that episode. Definitely my favorite of the season and in my top-5 favorite episodes in the series, maybe even top-3.

Damn, Cal has 2 top 10 players in this class (Brown and Ivan Rabb). Damn impressive.

Rewatching the final episode from last season to get ready for this one.

Don't forget DJ Shadow too.

I feel like 90% of people don't think that Pharell existed before Happy/Blurred Lines.
|23 weeks 3 days ago||JayZ definitely messed that||
JayZ definitely messed that one up. That song was originally supposed to be a Eminem and Royce da 5'9, Bad Meets Evil, but Jay ended up replacing Royce and putting it on the Blueprint. I feel like Jay had to know what he was getting into.
Huh, I honestly don't know too much of Big L's stuff. I'll check it out.
Also, Rakim definitely definitely gets slept on too much in the discussion of best rapper.
|23 weeks 3 days ago||Cosigned. Nas is the greatest||
Cosigned. Nas is the greatest lyricist in hip hop history. Although honestly, I wouldn't shocked to be Kendrick challenging that title in the future. That guys taking over the world right now.
|23 weeks 3 days ago||If you think Kanye doesn't||
If you think Kanye doesn't know music you know nothing about Kanye, and music in general.
He was one of the top producers in Hip-Hop before he ever released a song of his own. So to say he doesn't know music or is an insult to true musicians is complete bullshit.
Bruce Springsteen (link), Elton John (link) and Liam Gallagher (link) and a ton of others have said they love Kanye's work. He's had extensive collaborations with some of the best musicans (Bon Iver and Paul McCartney for example). He's just about more critically loved than any artist out right now (pitchfork gave his last two albums 10.0 and 9.5, rolling stone gave them 5 and 4.5 stars, etc)
If you say Kanye ruined music, you don't know music.
|23 weeks 3 days ago||Most people haven't heard of||
Most people haven't heard of the song itself before, but there's a drum solo in it called the "amen break" which is incredibly famous and sampled in tons of hip hop, electronic music and rock music. And I'd be pretty surprised if most people didn't recognize it immediately.

There's an ironic humor to someone responding "Amen, brother" to rap sucking, as the song "Amen, Brother" has been one of the most influential songs in all of Hip-Hop (although not a hip-hop song itself)
