Top 10 Reasons to Get Excited for the Olympics: #5 Beach Volleyball



Top 10 Reasons to Get Excited for the Olympics: #5 Beach Volleyball

This is one sport that is by far one of the most entertaining in all of the Olympic games, yet aside from once every four years, it hardly gains major recognition. 2012 will be another year when Beach Volleyball will entertain the billions of Earth. Beach Volleyball is fast and intense, and makes for great television. Moreover, did anyone ever mention that there is an American sphere of Domination?
The American Women’s teams have dominated this sport since 1996, and no one has even come close.

Sadly, the Brazilian men’s teams have also medaled every year since 1996…..fucking rainforest people :P

Questions for You:
Is this the sport that has the least amount of clothing? I’d bet on it, and I guess that’s a major reason why we don’t see beach volleyball Gold medals from Saudi Arabia or the Sudan….(pause for laughter). 

I remember during the 2008 games, I developed a major crush on China’s Xue Chen. The six foot three dominatrix of Beach Volleyball went on to take the Bronze medal at Beijing and is returning for the 2012 London Games. 

China's Xue Chen and her Money Maker
Xue Chen was ranked as the third sexiest Asian athlete by CNN International. I guess I’m not the only one that is in need of a giant woman in a bathing suit that likes kicking ass.

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

Tusse releases French Language Version of "Voices"

In case you missed Eurovision this past weekend - and if you're an American, you likely did - there were some truly talented acts among those competing for this year's prestigious title. There were some pretty boring acts, and there were only a few of truly strange contestants this time around (bummer).  Sweden's act Tusse was pretty talented; his joyful and uplifting track "Voices" was actually one of the few that seemed rather memorable to me. Turns out he's releasing it in French - which makes sense, as Tusse is Kongo-Kinshasa born. Tusse is enormously popular in Sweden from what I can tell, having won both Melodifestivalen (Sweden's precursor to Eurovision) and Swedish Idol. He's a talented guy, and I'm sure we're just seeing the start of what is bound to be a long and prolific career.   (you might not be able to watch this outside of Sweden so, see below) The French version of "Voices" is available for streaming here .  Also, whi

"Round the Bend" - Zoon (Beck cover)

My favorite album of Beck's has long been "Sea Change," for approximately the 20 or so years it's been out. I would probably regard it as one of my personal favorite records, for its wistfulness and its beauty. When I heard about Zoon (aka Zoongide’ewin) - the musical project of Daniel Monkman - covering the "Sea Change" track "Round the Bend," I was somewhat skeptical simply because the album holds such a place in my heart. Now, prior to hearing about this cover, I wasn't so familiar with the work of Zoon. And now, I've got to say, in my best Owen Wilson - Wow.  Apparently we both hold the 2003 Beck album in high esteem. Said Daniel about "Sea Change," "After my first listen I was so moved and at the time I was going through a pretty bad break up and this album helped me process my depression. Throughout my time away from music I’d always have a copy beside me; it kept inspiring me that I could try any kind of music style. I
