Anybody heading down to the Greater Nashville (TN) area for Bonnaroo this summer?
Pretty killer lineup for this year.
Some of the big names:
Elton John, Jack White, Kanye West, Lionel Ritchie, Vampire Weekend, The Avett Brothers, Phoenix, Skrillex, Arctic Monkeys, Flaming Lips, Ice Cube, Lauryn Hill, Frank Ocean, Cake, Amos Lee, Broken Bells, Umphrey's McGee, Fitz and the Tantrums, Wiz Khalifa, John Butler Trio, and many many more.
The complete lineup is here:
Season 2 is so amazing I had to create a thread for this to share my enthusiasm.
I'm totally bored, totally sick of snow and totally into True Detective right now. Last drinking thread there appeared to be others into it.
What say you people of the MGoBoard? Who watched True Detective? Where do you see it going? Last night they set up the possibility that Cohle is behind some of the murderous happenings down in Louisiana. I'm not seeing it, but can't ignore the possibility.
Other winter distractions?
The Walking Dead has returned with its ever-slowing plots.
House of Cards Season 2 is out. I've never watched it, but I know its big.
We're just six-ish weeks from the return of Game of Thrones.
And, when all else fails, there's beer to discuss. I'm tipping back a Bell's Amber Ale at the moment.
SPOILER PROTOCOL: For the sake of everyone, I propose the following: Talking about anything that's happened in any of these shows, to date, is fair game. Talking about events/characters/plot points that have yet to occur in the shows (Walking Dead and GoT to be specific) should be verboten and considered dirty spoiling.
So, if you are not up to date on the TV shows, tread lightly. If you are a book/comic reader and know future plot happenings, those of us who just watch would appreciate your discretion.
Anybody looking for something fun & diferent to do this Saturday in AA, come see my co-worker's A Capella group perform in the Great Lakes Varsity Vocals ICCA Quarterfinals. 7pm at Rackham. The International Championships of A Cappella provides top-notch collegiate a cappella groups with valuable feedback from qualified judges, and offers attendees a great way to see the top a cappella groups!
Recently made popular by NBC’s hit series the Sing Off and 2012′s Blockbuster Pitch Perfect, a cappella groups feature musicians using nothing but their voices to make music. In performing renditions of both popular songs and originals, the groups compete to advance to the regional semifinals, followed by the finals in New York City. The competition is sure to be an unforgettable experience, and features fun that everyone can enjoy!
Chantel Jennings - formerly of Wolverine Nation, who recently seemed to be pseudo-covering the Big Ten in addition to Michigan athletics - recently tweeted that she will be moving west to cover the Pac-12 for ESPN. Seems like a step forward in her career. Good for her.
"This film should be played loud!"
This was presented at the groundbreaking ceremonies for the Earl V. Moore Building School of Music, Theatre, and Dance renovation and expansion project. Arrangement was done by a graduate student instructor at the School.
Since there was no Michigan basketball game today, what did you guys do? I spent the day shoveling snow and wishing that Mila Kunis was playing Battlefield 4 with me.
In other news I heard a report that Putin was considering nuking Iowa. I don't believe anyone will object.
I compiled all of the BHGP Podcast intros up to now, including some of their one-off ones. It also includes the intro from the short lived Maize Pants collaboration podcast. Listen to it to prepare for the Iowa game today.
