Yes, you may have noticed we’ve been gone for a month. The WLOY servers decided they were going to go on holiday to Bucharest over Christmas and they just lost track of time, then they missed their train to the airport and the flights got cancelled, they were rerouted through Kuala Lumpur and finally landed in Hong Kong. After a brief layover there, they were finally rested up enough to return home to their rightful place in the core… Now they’re back and we’re getting them back to work. Thanks for bearing with us during that mess. Expect a lot of updates, including videos from interviews and lots more. Meanwhile, we also scheduled a veritable ton (seriously, if we put all these bands on a really big scale they would way at least 2,000 pounds) of great acts for our free Thursday night shows. Watch for the posters around town and lots of posts here. Don’t forget to jump on our various social media sites to keep up as well: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr and SnapChat. Bonus points if your friend us on MySpace 😉

On Tuesday in Charlotte, North Carolina, Carolina Panthers quarterback, Cam Newton, was involved in a two-car collision close to the team’s stadium.
The police report declared that Newton was not at fault, as he was going an appropriate speed when another driver cut him off.
The accident leaves Newton with two transverse fractures in his lower back, a similar injury to that suffered by Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo earlier this season. Read the rest of this entry »

Hey guys. Long time no talk. Coming back to you all after being abroad a little bit early to rave about the new Coldplay music video; it’s just that awesome. This new video, for ‘Ink’ off Coldplay’s most recent album Ghost Stories, takes it’s viewers on an interactive journey following a man’s dream for love and happiness. About every ten seconds or so the
viewer, player is given a choice or a path that will lead our main character toward a new horizon and will significantly change his fate and his chances at love. This incredible video, designed by Blind, offers about 300 different music videos in one with it’s many options for it’s character to fulfill. This type of video raises the bar in the world of music videos and gives the listeners so much more involvement in the music they love so much. It’s very engaging and adds an awesome new level to the experience of listening to good music. Innovations like these allow artists to bring their followers just a little bit deeper into their crazy worlds, and I am a fan.

We are officially one year in to the new college football playoff system with its new committee, and one thing is very clear…clarity is much needed!
Going into the final week of the college football regular season, the rankings had 10-1 TCU at number 3, 12-0 Florida State at number 4, 11-1 Ohio State at number 5, and 10-1 Baylor at number 6.
All 5 teams won their last game of the season, however the kicker in this whole situation is that TCU and Baylor’s final games didn’t include a conference championship game due to the fact that it doesn’t exist in the BIG 12.
The final rankings completely shafted the BIG 12 Conference, as TCU and Baylor were bumped back to the 6 and 5 spot respectively, leaving them on the outside looking in to number 3 Florida State and number 4 Ohio State. Read the rest of this entry »
