This is time of the year where sports fans can easily get a little confused. Football is on its slow death march to the off-season and basketball is in the guts of their 82 games and when you turn it on its about a 50/50 chance that one of the team’s really doesn’t give a shit. Thankfully the lacrosse season is kicking off but lax in January is pretty brutal. This year we at least have the Winter Olympics to keep everyone over the age of 40 occupied for a few weeks. Me? I’m just looking forward to getting a little more Bob Costas in my life then I ever really wanted or asked for. Get ready America because Bob and his countless array of sweaters are invading a television near you.
Until then I boiled up some Spoon Feed stew just for you. It’s Friday night on Lax All Stars and you know what that means.
Time to get Fed.
More Hermonie Granger here.
I’m psychic. You just googled “How old is Emma Watson” didn’t you?

5. War Eagles! Ka-caw!
Given how overexposed Will Ferrell is, I’m still amazed that we haven’t seen a major backlash. Playing Bush on broadway, starring in fifteen movies a year, and even sending Conan off into the sunset bellowing the lyrics to Freebird while licking the face of a his pregnant wife and I still can’t get enough. (We’ll chalk Land Of The Lost up as a mulligan)
With that in mind I bring you one of the best clips from Ferrell that we found through the magic of YouTube. I bet you’ve never seen it.
4. Like My Loafers? Former Gophers!
GMODT alerted us to this collection of twenty great Simpsons musical moments. I’ll be the first to admit that I think I know each song word for word. Mother’s hide your daughters.
3. All About Style
We love designing everything at LAS HQ, from logos to t-shirts sometimes it’s all we can do from nerding out and debating the next crazy idea we want to unleash on the masses. So forgive us if we love a good rundown of some of the best logo redesigns ever made.
While we’re talking about t-shirts, why don’t you head over and buy one of our Legends or “Top Corn-er” shirts. It’s about zero degrees here in NYC and they help keep the heat on. It’s the right thing to do.
2. How To Fall 35,000 Feet—And Survive
A great article from Popular Mechanics. Maybe this will help cure me from the “I’m falling and screaming like a frightened child”-dreams I get every once in awhile. Now if they can only write a follow up article about that T-Rex chasing me down a hallway dream I keep having.
Glass hurts, but it gives. So does grass. Haystacks and bushes have cushioned surprised-to-be-alive free-fallers. Trees aren’t bad, though they tend to skewer. Snow? Absolutely. Swamps? With their mucky, plant-covered surface, even more awesome. Hamilton documents one case of a sky diver who, upon total parachute failure, was saved by bouncing off high-tension wires. Contrary to popular belief, water is an awful choice. Like concrete, liquid doesn’t compress. Hitting the ocean is essentially the same as colliding with a sidewalk, Hamilton explains, except that pavement (perhaps unfortunately) won’t “open up and swallow your shattered body.”
1. Lucy In The Sky With Wu-Tang
Someone thought that mixing Wu-Tang acapella tracks with Beatles beats was a good idea. Even better is that it turned out pretty damn cool.
Listen for yourself here.
And this only the beginning. Check out the rest of The Spoon Feed and see what else you missed.
