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.

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home. Hell, Anth
