NFL Returns

Yesterday was kind of a big deal for football fans. It officially moved us from That Time Of The Year That's Dark and Sad to That Time Of The Year When Everything Is Right In The World (Because Football). Last night, the Seahawks beat the Packers during the first game of this year's NFL season. And it's gonna be a good one. The return of the NFL season means is great because of Fantasy Football and tailgating and these 48 other reasons (which you should totally read through). Here's to hoping this season provides plenty of fodder for a new NFL Bad Lip Reading video, because that's my go-to thing when the topic of football comes out and I really could use a video that's more recent than January 2014.

Eastern Michigan Football vs. a Brick Wall: Who Ya Got?

The Eastern Michigan Eagles football team opened their season on Saturday and wanted to make a big entrance in front of their home fans by sledgehammering a brick wall during pregame introductions. Unfortunately, it was a failed effort. Apparently, the organizers of this entrance did not take into account that brick walls are actually pretty tough to knock down.

The Emmys 2014

On Monday, the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards took place in Los Angeles, and there were plenty of highlights (and low-lights) from the show. There has been a collective "eh" over Seth Meyer's performance as host, which is pretty much what is said about anyone hosting award shows, so good job Seth? "Modern Family" and "Breaking Bad" continued their reigns on the Emmys, combining for eight awards on the night. The highlight of the night for me, as a "Billy on the Street" fan, was Billy Eichner hitting the street with Meyers asking unsuspecting people about the Emmys (video to the left).

Breaking Bad

"Breaking Bad" returned to public consciousness this week (as if it ever left) when its stars, Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, were featured in a pre-Emmys skit with Julia Louis-Dreyfus. The two play the skeevy owners of a pawn shop, featured on a reality show, that happened to get a visit from Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who portrayed an exaggerated version of herself. It was a cute skit meant to promote the Emmys, which take place on Monday. On top of that, Aaron Paul also announced a scavenger hunt for "Breaking Bad" fans to honor the show's last time being eligible for an Emmy. The scavenger hunt includes a chance to find things like scripts, posters, dolls, and art from the show. (Please Note: Video has mild cussing.)

Music's Australasian Invasion Is Here. Are You Ready?

Australasia

Everybody's heard of the British Invasion, the period in the mid-1960s when a bunch of artists and bands, led by The Beatles, crossed the Atlantic Ocean to perform in front of audiences in America for the first time. That two year span of time brought us now-household names like The Rolling Stones, The Yardbrids, The Kinks, The Who, Small Faces, and many more. The period had a large influence on popular music and culture in the United States, and British artists have been a major part of the American music scene ever since.

Is the same thing that happened in the 1960s now happening with artists from Australia and New Zealand? Are we seeing an Australasian Invasion? I believe so.
