I work in music management, so I feel compelled to drop in here.
Favorite band is Animal Collective. If you haven't listened to their new album Painting With, definitely give it a try (not for everyone, but damn it's good).
Also check out Mutemath's new album Vitals, Houndmouth's Little Neon Limelight, and this up-and-coming R&B singer Alina Baraz's Urban Flora.

You should do your research. Weed isn't bad for you. Recent studies have shown that it doesn't kill brain cells as many have assumed, it only slows them temporarily. It may have a long term effect on memory, but no significant results have been found.
Additionally, other research has found no significant effect on your lungs or respiratory function. In fact, those that smoke weed often show better lung capacity because of their practice of inhaling larger amounts of air.
There is no comparison between cigarettes and weed. Weed is only psychologically addictive and are without withdrawal symptoms if one decides to "quit" (of course they may be sad that they can't get high anymore, but you could say the same about chocolate).
Just my factual 2 cents.
|4 years 1 week ago||It's still true. I don't||
It's still true. I don't think you understood my point. The law is great and all (and by that I mean stupid), but some people that disapprove of smoking weed often overlook the fact that underage drinking is illegal too. That's all.

You sir have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. Students at the University of Michigan are some of the friendliest to weed in the country, and yet we maintain our extremely high ranking and continue on to be active and non-worthless members of society.
Smoking weed does not equal worthless.
Being worthless may often result in smoking weed.
Correlation does not equal causation, blah blah blah.
P.S. Read over your posts. Your spelling is awful. Perhaps that's how you can determine someone is "worthless."

I'm all for following the law. I'm only commenting on the general acceptance of underage drinking compared to the disapproval smoking of weed. Especially when often the only argument for those who disapprove of smoking weed is that it's illegal. Underage drinking is illegal too but that's OK when you're in college, right?
|4 years 1 week ago||Drinking underage is||
Drinking underage is "illegal," and most of the team is underage. You think even half of the underage football players at Michigan don't drink?
Not arguing your point about DB, just saying that they can actually get in more legal trouble for drinking underage (MIP, other illegal actions that being drunk can cause) than smoking weed ($25 fine, slap on wrist).
Most of them participate in an illegal activity or another, some are just more acceptable than others as your comment suggests.

Re-watched the end probably 10+ times now and I still get nervous. I'm afriad that Posey actually caught the pass and went in for a TD, and that it put me into a coma in which I dream he didn't and we won. It's believable because I nearly did pass out when that ball was in the air.
I also still get furious at the refs for the overturn. The end is, and always will be happy though!

That means I'm still 0-2 against them as a student. I guess we'll just have to win this year so I go out with a bang.
|4 years 42 weeks ago||Question||
First off, I'm sorry if this has been answered elsewhere.
If they vacate all of their wins for the 2010 season, does that wipe each game from the slate of every team they've played (like the season never happened)? Or are all of the teams they've played given the W by forfeit?
Thanks in advance.
|4 years 45 weeks ago||I'd love for Darius to be||
I'd love for Darius to be picked by the Heat, but I think they'd prefer to sign a veteran. Chalmers has a bright future once he can mature mentally, and he really just needs guidance. Bibby is too inconsistent to be that veteran. That's definitely the Heat's first priority though (that and a true center maybe).
|4 years 47 weeks ago||Or maybe, just maybe, Miami||
Or maybe, just maybe, Miami was good enough to overcome the so-called "plot?" If the refs had called Miami as they called Dallas, or vice-versa, I think Miami would've won by a lot more. Miami has dominated play throughout the series except for the last 7 minutes in Game 2, and a few mintues in game 3 (largely caused by swings in officiating IMO). Again, I'm upset either way if I feel the officiating was unfair. I just want a fair series so we can really see who the better team is. That's what sports are about, after all.
|4 years 47 weeks ago||I think the refs got that||
I think the refs got that call incorrect as well. Not sure of the actual rule, but the ESPN/ABC crew was saying that it shouldn't have counted after the game. I guess the refs were making up for the unbalanced foul calling. /sarcasm
EDIT: Not to mention that ridiculous non-call on Kidd's traveling when he jumped into Wade (or Lebron, can't remember) and never even tried to shoot the ball. He took like 6 steps.
|4 years 47 weeks ago||I'm not referring to that||
I'm not referring to that play. Nowitzki was blocked out on a rebound and fell back/flopped just like Wade did without being touched and got the call.
|4 years 47 weeks ago||So are you OK with Nowitzki||
So are you OK with Nowitzki doing it?
|4 years 47 weeks ago||Nowitzki did the same thing||
Nowitzki did the same thing later in the game. I don't necessarily like it, but it is part of the game.
While I am from Florida, and have been a Heat fan since I was a child, I generally see officiating pretty fairly. I get upset if either team gets poor calls as I'd rather see a game played and called fairly, whether my team wins or loses.
That being said, I do agree with the OP for tonight. Officiating seemed to be on the Heat's side during the Chicago series, but tonight the refs seemed glued to the whistle when the Heat were up by more than 7 or 8 points. Happy to escape with an important win though.
|4 years 48 weeks ago||Unbelievably true.||
|5 years 5 days ago||I see||
I see what you are saying. I was more aiming to get an idea of how the community views the moderation, and my conclusions are based off of those insights (a combination of written responses and quantitative data). I did not see a reasonable way to provide the community with the thousands of written responses, so you must trust (or not trust) my conclusions based on my word that I am making them from the majority of expressed opinions.
As for the opinion vs. content-based voting, that is simply how people choose to vote on comments. Votes should be given based on the quality of content, and not because one poster agrees or disagrees with another. This was one of the major insights that was gathered from the written responses. Gathering the data you suggested would be interesting, but while it would measure points from posting vs. up/down votes, it would not measure whether the votes given are opinion or content-based. I would have done this 1) if I had more time before the project was due and 2) if the project actually asked for this. My research was already an above-and-beyond effort for the project assigned, and I figured the community would be interested in its results.
Take the results and their limitations however you like, but I do believe my conclusions and recommendations to be strong, even if they're just from "an opinion poll posted as a Forum thread."
This is not to disregard the OPs data from Quantcast. My demographics may certainly be off based on the likelihood of who could and would take my survey.
|5 years 5 days ago||Thanks, this is very||
Thanks, this is very interesting. Perhaps a certain demographic is more willing/able/has more time to take an online survey than others. I wish I had access to this information before I started the survey!
|5 years 5 days ago||How so?||
My research was not meant to gauge the blog's demographics per say, I felt like those would just be necessary questions to see who was taking the survey. If you are skeptical of generalizing the demographics of my survey to the entire blog, I can understand that.
However, the conclusions I made were based off of the questions asking about the point system and its likelihood to change motivations to post and the content posted. The survey was only posted once, and I'm sure you can argue that only certain people were likely to see the link and take the survey. I do not think this makes my conclusions any less significant, and my recommendations any less valid.

This is very true! While this might pose a problem, I'm not sure what I could've done since it was on the board for about a week before I calculated the results (and got pushed off the front page pretty fast). Having 500 participants alone helps legitimize the results too.

I can see how you might make that connection, however, no it is not.

I love Miami, but only South/North Beach. The actual city can be fun in the right places (Little Havana) but it can also be dangerous- thus not fun.
Go to Lincoln Rd. for sure. It's a closed-street-made-pedestrian-mall that is a lot of fun. There are a lot of shops, art galleries, restaurants and other random things. For food, I definitely recommend Nexxt. It's like a 10x better version of Cheesecake Factory with an even larger menu. Go to The Frieze for dessert. They have really freshly made sorbets and ice creams. The sorbets basically taste like you're eating a frozen more-delicious version of the actual fruit.
Otherwise, try out Bayside, that's a cool place. And if you're into basketball try to get tickets to a Heat game. Heat fan or not, the AAA is a classy arena and a good time (plus, go to Bongo's- great food and drinks right next to the AAA).
Obviously walk down the strip and check out the famous hotels and go clubbing at night. That's what South Beach/Miami is all about isn't it?

Something that you did not consider is that both teams would be playing on the North side of the field in the 3rd overtime. Although some would probably disagree, having the student section directly in Illinois' ear during that 2pt. conversion attempt was an advantage. I'm sure the coaches considered going for 2 in the second OT, but why do that when you can get the students to help out the defense on the other end? Just something to consider.

I actually said to my friends right before that play, "If they get the 5 yards needed for a first down, we should just let them walk it in." If Kovacs had made that tackle, IU would've ran the clock down more and most likely scored anyway. So when Willis caught the ball, it was weird but I said, "just go in" and was happy when Kovacs missed the tackle. Of course that left plenty of time for Denard to work his magic. My friends thought I was crazy at the time and if we hadn't of scored in the last 1:15 they would've probably killed me.
Moral of the story is: Denard is literally a life saver.

You've got to be shitting me. I've been looking forward to my last football game as a student to be OSU for years (I'm a Junior now). I'm going to be so angry.

I'm sorry if this has already been asked/discussed, but assuming The Game is moved, which is the first possible year for it to be done?

|5 years 37 weeks ago||Game Update||
Minor hasn't been in yet, but Mathews has for the last few drives. Every play involving Mathews has been a deep pass down the right side, and he's either been given a bad throw from LeFevour or just plain dropped it. On the last drop, the ball was placed right between the numbers and an announcer is quoted as saying "if Mathews had any chance of making the team, that chance is fleeting quickly." Not to be a debbie downer, but it's not looking very good. Hopefully he'll have more chances.

I was thinking the same thing when I saw it. I'm pretty sure he was stuffed on 1st down as well. Bad memories.
|5 years 37 weeks ago||I saw it||
He looked quick (as usual) and dragged a guy or two. The 15 yard run was nice to see. Only had 3 or 4 carries including 2 inside the 10 (didn't score). Just to point out, he was in with the OL's backup's backups and there really wasn't much of anything given to him.
Still good to see him out there. Weird to see him in #39.

BG is sitting so far in the 2nd Half. If he's in anymore I'll be sure to update here.
|5 years 37 weeks ago||Halftime update||
BG hasn't recorded anything new but has been pressuring the QB on most plays. He seems to be even faster (!!) off the ball snap and has some new hand moves. Otherwise, almost all of the Jags' plays have been passes as the Eagles' secondary has been taken advantage of a few times (McCown is 5/5 for 147 and 2TDs.). The Eagle's DL looks great, causing the Jags' to only run 3 running plays. This definitely accounts for the lack of BG tackles and he has been close to sacking McCown 2 or 3 times. Even with the lack of stats, the announcers have praised BG numerous times for his quickness, moves and tenacity for getting to the ball.
For those interested, Vick has looked great on the run, and good on the pass. He ran for 1TD but threw 1INT and lost a fumble while scrambling.

OT I know, but do you happen to be John Bacon? I understand if you would rather not give away your identity, but if you are Professor Bacon I would like to say that, on behalf of many current upperclassmen, I hope you teach the History of College Athletics sooner than later.
On another more on topic note: The HOF wouldn't dare not to place THE SPACE EMPEROR FROM SPACE in it. I hope I am not struck by lightning for the thought.

As for the preference of Nike, it's not that I prefer the brand over Adidas (I own plenty of Adidas apparel), it's just the look of the jersey that I prefer. The material seems better and the Michigan jerseys specifically look more classic/what I would imagine an M jersey to look like in my head.
And while I do NOT think they should be anywhere close to the field on a saturday, the "hideous maize ones" actually do look pretty good and would be perfect for the student section. I refuse to wear anything but maize on a football saturday, thus making it impossible to wear a jersey to a game.

Saw that white one, seemed a little worn to me. I know, me being waaay too picky again. And I would do the winter layer thing except if I got it, I would always wish I could wear it at other times. The XL by itself would be HUGE on me especially since Nike jerseys generally run large.

I agree, the Nike's just have a more of a classic M look to me. I've been looking on eBay for some time now. Just bad luck I suppose.

Thanks a lot but I'm really looking for numbers 1 or 2. (I know, picky picky...) The problem I'm finding is that the stores are selling numbers 4. 5, 7, 10, 16, 20, and 86. I've had my heart (unfortunately) set on the classic 1 or 2. Seriously, thanks though.

Fortt is a big-time recruit and has been talked about consistently in recruiting posts over the past few months.

No. They had that package of $140 for the UM-MSU and one other ticket to an MSU game on sale 2 days before they put single tickets on sale to the public for $70. We took a chance but ended up getting all the tickets we wanted.

Section 16, row 53. A couple die-hards and I are going to try and raid the student section seeing that we're right next to it. $70 from MSU athletics (bought them at 12:01 AM after they came on sale to the public). SO PUMPED.
