Your outlook on life can change in a split second, and I realized that not too long ago. A couple weeks ago, I visited my parents and some friends in my hometown. It was my dad’s birthday, so we had a nice little celebration with him in my parent’s sports bar/man cave in their garage. However, pr...

If you had asked me a two days ago if I thought I was addicted to my iPhone, I would have sworn up and down that I wasn’t. I’m not sure, but even after this whole fiasco, I’d probably still try to argue that I’m not, but the bottom line is this: I rely on my phone to (unsuccessfully) wake me up fo...

Everywhere I go I hear the newest radio hits in hip-hop music, and I barely, if ever, hear the classics anymore. I enjoy a lot of the current hip-hop/rap artists, but there is no denying that a large portion of it is uninspired radio music. While some current rappers in the game are true MCs, some ha...
