Happy October folks! We have officially transitioned to what only the Wisconsinites call “fall,” rife with pumpkin spice lattes, a multitude of other pumpkin cliches and the countdown towards what will be my first official Halloween! I did not grow up dressing up in costumes to celebrate Halloween or go trick-or-treating; therefore my experience on that front is abysmally little.
Quick, name a better rock singer than Steve Winwood. If you answered anyone other than Bob Seger, you’re dead wrong.
I’ve been playing Nintendo’s new life sim, “Tomodachi Life,” since a couple weeks after its release in June. To summarize, the game gives the player use of the Mii creation system—the same one used to make the avatars who populate Wii Sports—to create residents in an apartment complex on a resort island. The game encourages you to create your friends, your family, or your favorite celebrities. A handful have signed on to provide their likenesses; official Wayne Brady, Zendaya and Christina Aguilera Miis are easy to find online, and a commercial displays Shaq and Shaun White Miis tasting some of the food in the game.

Well… that Kansas City Royals game was fun. Twelve innings of multiple ties and lead changes, truly memorable plays and heroes like Brandon Finnegan, Brandon Moss and Jarrod Dyson all in front of an electric crowd and in winner-take-all, no-tomorrow stakes? Yeah, I’d like to see more of that.
I didn’t watch much of MTV’s Video Music Awards this year, but the one clip I did see was 15 seconds of Laverne Cox dancing and singing along to Beyoncé’s performance. Most of the crowd around her looked disinterested in the whole affair, but Cox was turning it out in the aisle. After watching, and re-watching the clip, my reaction was the same: I just kept shouting “YAAAAS” at my computer, if you’ll forgive my stanning.
Give me one reason why Florida State is No. 1 in the AP poll.
Last week, it was announced that Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn, along with a yet to be cast female lead will star in the upcoming second season of “True Detective.” Farrell will star as a detective, while Vaughn has been cast as a career criminal and seems to be the antagonist of the new season. The only other details that have been revealed about the new season are that it will take place in California and will have something to do with, in the words of show creator Nic Pizzolatto, “the secret occult history of the United States transportation system.” That certainly leaves a lot of room for speculation, and because I am a huge fan of both speculation and “True Detective,” I have decided to come up with some scenarios of what the new season might have in store, as well as which female actress would be best cast as the lead.
In the hierarchy of the Big Three pro sports commissioners (maybe next time, NHL), everyone hates Roger Goodell and everyone loves Adam Silver.
A couple of weeks ago, Spotify released a big ol’ batch of data on the Top 40 musical universities. The fine University of Wisconsin-Madison came in at 15, the top school in the Big Ten, though that last clause holds true on just about everything, not just how much students here listen to music through Spotify.
With the end of September at our doorstep, midterm season is starting up (boo) as well as Big Ten conference play (yay?). Here are five things we learned about our begrudgingly beloved conference in this tumultuous month.

So there’s this really terrific film called “Belle,” and if you haven’t seen it I really recommend it. The premise is (basically) that the mixed race daughter of an English admiral runs into trouble when she tries to be a black person in 18th century Britain. It intelligently tackles social and racial issues, it’s visually stunning, and the cast, especially star Gugu Mbatha-Raw and veteran Tom Wilkinson, give fantastic performances.
If you read my column last week you should know that I’m pretty peeved with the fact that there are seven SEC schools in the top 15.
