Grizzly Concert Review: Odd Future

The first thing I saw when I pulled up to the Odd Future concert in Tempe, Arizona was the last thing I wanted to see; a line. Not just any line, mind you.  A line that went from the front door all the way across the street to the other end of the street. Needless to say this wasn’t a very good start to what was supposed to be the greatest concert of all time.

Two hours, two bottles of water, several panic attacks, and a thorough backpack search later, I had finally entered the Marquee Theater. I rushed to buy a shirt quickly before the show started, and then made my way into the auditorium. As I entered, I realized that it really wasn’t as crowded as I had original anticipated, which was a definite relief. I made my way into the crowded, nudging between the drunk and the scary, hoping to find a good spot. Alas, no standing room of the such was found. Everything was blocked by people that were far too tall to even be allowed in an auditorium or concert hall. At this point it was about 8:15-8:30 PM. The ticket advertised an 8 PM show time, which in most cases means 8:30. I had to be home at 11:30, so I was trying to be as time conscious as I could. As careful as I was to look at my phone every now and then, the minutes kept moving, and there was still no sign of a concert starting.

NFL Grizzly Picks of the Week: Week 2

 

Last week Rev. Kaiser claimed he knew more about football than you, and then he went on to correctly guess 9 of the remaining 15 games – which is roughly 60%.

That’s not great, but he still thinks he is awesome, so we’re gonna do something new. Well, for the rest of the year he and I will split up each week’s games and we’ll see who is smarter.

We’ll count week one as a warm up, so Kaiser gets a clean slate. From here out we’ll split the games down the middle. And while we are simply picking winners, we’ll use the Vegas line determine the favorites.

You get 1 point for picking the favorite correctly, and 2 points for an upset win. Our picks will be in BOLD and upset picks are denoted by a *

So, here we go…

Scum of the Week – Nicolas Cage

This is a new weekly article from Grizzly Bomb, where over the span of the week every week we will be naming someone as our pick for the most scum worthy. Scum can be interpreted in many ways, for example: scumbag, scumbucket, scumsucker. You get the idea.

This weeks scum nominee is of course Nicolas Cage.

In case you hadn’t heard, Mr. Cage was arrested in New Orleans for domestic violence and battery…. against his wife. Cage and his wife were arguing in front of an apartment because the actor was pretty sure that this was a place they were renting, his wife however disagreed.

Cage, super duper intoxicated at this point, thought it would be a good idea to take his wife by the arm and pull her to the house. Cage then struck several cars before the police were called and he was hauled off to central lockup. All I can say is at least he didn’t punch her whilst wearing a bear suit.

If you want the full detailed story, CNN Entertainment seems to have a pretty good rundown of this monstrosity. This may have been an overblown issue because the man is a celebrity, but domestic violence is domestic violence.

Thank you Mr. Cage for being our first Scum of the Week!
