As The Onion and other publications could tell you, college kids love them some Bob Marley. In fact, there’s a good chance that on every dorm room floor and in every frat house there are at least two Marley posters for every three rooms. It’s just science.

Mention Issac Hayes to people of a certain age and the two reference points you get are probably the “Shaft” theme song and the voice of Chef on South Park. While both those things are pretty great, Issac Hayes had a lot of quality music that doesn’t really fit a specific recognizable niche. These excellent tunes sometimes slip through the cracks but I’m here to make sure they get some recognition.

I hate to be the one to break this news, but a performer by the name of Michael Jackson passed away last week. I think at this point the only way people can relate to this guy are their own personal stories about experiences with his music.

Really, the weekend should have ended so much better. The weather was warm, summer officially arrives next week and I was confident everything was going to come up GMODT. But last night ended in a hospital waiting room and the L.A. Lakers winning another NBA title.

Has everybody already heard this Lil Wayne “Kobe Bryant” song? I can’t begin without addressing what a crime this is. How come Spike “Knick Fan for Life” Lee didn’t soundtrack “Kobe Talkin to Teammates” with this song? Also, is Kobe’s new game face intense or painful to watch? Does he just “Want A Championship That Bad” (copyright pending), or does he have indigestion?
