GRIMES: Bracing us for Robot Takeover One Song at a Time

Grime’s new single, “We Appreciate Power” is an ode to Artificial Intelligence and how our future might look pretty soon. In this technological age, progression is happening at turbo speeds, making our measly mortal bodies seem so primitive in comparison to the infinite potential of mechanization. In this track, Grimes seems to be propagating the fatalistic attitude of a future where AI will have unbounded power over us silly little human beings. Now, I love Grimes and everything she does, but … [Continue Reading...]

The worst & best Halloween costumes I’ve seen

The worst Halloween costume I have ever seen is a banana costume. When I was in high school I saw both a student dressed up as a banana and one dressed up as a banana with the peels split down. It was not funny to me until I sat down to hang out with my friend at a table. When I looked up from my food, I saw the student dressed up like a banana with the peels split down running across the school yard getting chased by a student dressed as a gorilla. Not only that, the gorilla was roaring … [Continue Reading...]

Event Review: Slander – Headbangers Ball

Don't let the name fool you! Headbangers Ball is not what you're thinking. MTV's classic late-night television show is long forgotten. Instead the heavy bass duo, Slander adopts the name to headline their own US tour. Prior to the 2-week long campus closure, I had the pleasure of stopping by the San Jose City National Civic Center to attend their show. With it being titled "Headbangers Ball", it did not disappoint. The show feature supporting acts by Wavedash, and Eprom. Both … [Continue Reading...]

My Visit to the Sokiku Nakatani Tea Room

Recently, I visited the Sokiku Nakatani Tea Room here on campus. I was initially surprised AS I thought it would just be the small space of the tea room but that space was actually on display in a larger room. It reminded me of a stage because of the raised platform and it being on display for the rest of the room. The one idea I would associate my visit with is Time. When you first enter and sit down, you are given time to quiet your mind. We sat in silence, to let the rest of the world and … [Continue Reading...]

The Final G.O.A.T.

There are some people that say Michael Jordan (MJ) is the best player ever to play the game of basketball. There is, however, a player that sport writers have been comparing to Jordan: Kobe Bryant, the shooting guard for the Los Angeles Lakers. Sports writers have broken down these two players by three things: their ability to make their team better, scoring ability, and ability to make big shots for their team in key situations. Both players have played with their share of all-star teammates … [Continue Reading...]

“Men Lie, Women Lie, Numbers Don’t”

This is one of my favorite Jay-Z lines of all time. It’s so damn hard and so true. Well kind of true. Okay, not really true at all. But I still love this line. This blog is not about rap though, it’s about basketball and numbers. I love basketball-reference.com. It gives me all the knowledge I want about basketball on one website. But I did notice something … [Read More...]
