NEW ORLEANS – The Undertaker has just lost his 21-year Wrestlemania streak to former UFC fighter Brock Lesnar. It has been revealed that Brock Lesnar was not in fact supposed to win the match and was scripted for the Undertaker to win the match and extend his Wrestlemania streak to 22 wins.

I’m pretty sure most people know that WWE is actually staged and simply for entertainment. All matches are scripted and practiced weeks prior to the actual match, and the winner is, of course, picked before the match is aired, by WWE officials. However, this match was not meant for Brock Lesnar to win.

Similar to the Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart match back in 1997 Survivor Series pay-per-view known as the “Montreal screwjob”. Shawn Michaels had Bret Hart in a sharpshooter move when Vince McMahon told the officials to ring the bell, causing Michaels to win the match and ultimately screwing Hart over. All hell broke loose between Bret Hart and WWE owner Vince McMahon, which led to Hart leaving WWE for good.

Owner of WWE, Vince McMahon, was privately interviewed by reporters right after Lesnar beat Undertaker and said Undertaker was supposed to win the match and how Lesnar will be fired for changing the script. Visit Huzlers.com for more shocking news

I don’t know about many of you, but growing up I always watched Wrestlemania with my dad. It became tradition, and we have continued the tradition to this day. Yes we all know that Pro Wrestling is predetermined, which therefore makes it less of a sport, but if this report from HUZLER.com (and multiple other sources) is true then this is the biggest shock to the “WWE Universe” since Brett Hart lost to Shawn Michaels in the Montreal Screw Job. After Undertaker lost fans were in shock. His 22-0 record was now tarnished, and no matter if Brock Lesnar was supposed to beat him or not that mark will stay there. After the event WWE Owner Vince McMahon was interviewed and said that Brock changed the script and would be punished for it. If Lesnar did indeed go off script and beat the Undertaker just to end the streak, his tenure in the WWE should be over. The Undertaker is a legend in the business and that level of disrespect should not be tolerated.

Zdeno Beheads Goalie in “Banned” Commercail

Chara is a scary man

Chara is a scary man

Yahoo Sports Harrison Mooney

Last week, Warrior debuted an ad for their new Dynasty hockey stick, starring Zdeno Chara. In the ad, Chara, using the slick new piece of lumber, blasts a snapshot at a goalie so hard that it causes an atomic explosion. Presumably, the goalie perishes in the blast.

It made for a pretty aggressive commercial, but as it turns out, that was the censored version. In this version of the ad, which Warrior claims was banned by the NHL, not only does Chara’s snapshot produce an explosion — IT SLICES THE GOALIE’S HEAD CLEAN OFF HIS BODY.

More NHL commercials need to utilize grind house aesthetics. Note that the time on the clock is 6:66. This is thing is a gun-legged Rose McGowan away from being an obvious Robert Rodriguez joint.

Let this be a lesson to goalies everywhere: Zdeno Chara will end you, and then ruthlessly celebrate your demise.

Jimmy Howard knows it, too. “That mother****** is crazy,” he says. A fine performance, and kudos to him for going along with an ad that holds up a divisional rival as a goalie murderer.

Finally, I love the schink sound the puck makes as it cuts clean through the goalie’s brain stem like a samurai sword, although Canadiens fans probably don’t. One imagines they see this commercial as more evidence that Chara really is a headhunter.

I love this! The video is hilarious. It features Bruins’ Captain Zdeno Chara cutting off the head of a goalie with his legendary slap shot. His shot has clocked in at an NHL record 108.8 miles per hour. Thats right, its faster than your car on the highway. His shot has obviously been up to snuff this year, as he has recorded 16 goals already this year, one off of his career best. I hope this video gets to be shown, it should be at least in New England.

It’s A Trap! A History of the Trap Music Takeover

Image

For more than 40 years dance music has been a crowd and club favorite for anyone who is looking to get out and have a hell of a good time. Dance music has evolved significantly since the disco days of The Bee Gees and Carl Douglas’ “Kung Fu Fighting.” After the disco days came the dance-pop and boogie era, followed by countless other subgenres which all held their time in the limelight. Nowadays there are too many forms of dance music to even begin to mention, but headlining the modern craze includes House Music, Trance, Rave and of course Dubstep. But over the past few years another genre has began to gain huge fan fare and major publicity. This new craze is known as Trap Music.

Trap music originated in the early 2000s where it began to be incorporated in with Southern hip-hop. The Trap sound deals heavily with the sound of the 808 sub-bass kick drums, mostly being played in double-time, triple-time or even faster times where hi-hats and synthesizers are in abundance. Rappers like UGK and Three 6 Mafia were some of the first pioneers to incorporate these new sounds into their music. The term “trap” literally meant a place where drug deals were made during rap concerts, leading to these rappers who preformed using the sound as “trap rappers.” Since the days when UGK and Three 6 Mafia were on top, other well known rappers such as T.I. and Young Jeezy continued the legacy, and a new wave of rappers came in to take the reigns the trap rap position. New age rappers like Chief Keef and Future have kept the tradition of trap rap alive.

But while all the focus was on the rapping aspect of the music, dozens of producers and aspiring DJs dissected the unique new sound from the rap and made it entirely their own. New styles of electronic music were incorporated to the trap, creating a brand new baby to the EDM sphere. By combining the original sounds from Southern hip-hop beats with the trap-style drum patterns of EDM synthesizers, the new sound, often described as aggressive, dirty and dark. Electric producers, including Diplo, Baauer, Flosstradamus and RL Grimes expanded the popularity of Trap Music in the past few years, and it only looks like it’s going up from here. This new wave genre still holds true to its roots of rap while mostly focusing on the intense trance feeling it gives the listener.

Up until 2013, Trap Music was not at the center stage of the music world, but that was quickly about to change. After a fan made video became the largest Internet sensation to him the mainstream in years, Baauer’s “Harlem Shake” was an instant hit. The success of the video propelled the Harlem Shake to hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, the first trap song to ever do so. From there, the EDM community recognized the skyrocketing popularity of the genre, adding major names to the 2013 Ultra Music Festival, the United States premiere EDM festival. Worldwide, the impact was being made as well. The 2013 Tomorrowland Festival featured a stage dedicated a stage entirely to the booming genre, where Carnage, RL Grimes, Baauer and Flosstradamus gave the fans exactly what they were looking for.

One of the most popular aspects of Trap Music is incorporating original beats to already wildly popular songs. Among the most well known trap remixes includes Flosstradamus’ remix of Major Lazer’s “Original Don,” Carnage’s remix of Hardwell’s “Spaceman,” and RL Grimes’ remix of both Benny Benassi’s “Satisfaction” and Kanye West’s “Mercy.”

Though the Trap Music scene is new, the future looks incredibly bright for this new age genre, and it can only go up from here.

Taxachussets Living Up To Its Name… (Get Me To New Hampshire Pronto)

bilde

(T&G)- The Massachusetts Department of Transportation board of directors voted Wednesday to increase Registry of Motor Vehicle fees to raise an additional $55 million annually, with substantial increases in vehicle registration, inspection and driver license road test fees.  Under the new fee schedule, regular passenger vehicle registration fees will go from $50 to $60, while motor vehicle inspection fees will rise from $29 to $35 and road test fees will increase from $20 to $35, starting July 1.  The fee hikes were decided by a unanimous vote of the board that oversees all state transportation agencies, without any public notice of the specific fee increases and before any public hearings on proposed fee hikes. DOT officials said they will hold a public hearing in May before the pre-approved fee hikes take effect. The new fee structure would be included in a regulatory change that would be implemented by the Registry of Motor Vehicles by June 6, in order to allow the fee increases to begin July 1. In addition to the registry fee hikes, transportation officials said they expect to hike MBTA and commuter rail fares by 5 percent later this year.  DOT officials said initially the registry fee increases were not expected to be needed until July 2016. However, they said they have realized a $55 million funding gap for the coming year, in part because transportation officials were counting on new state revenue from expanded casino gambling, which is not yet coming into the state. Also, the Legislature directed the DOT to raise $40 million in new revenue for the coming year from its own fee systems to better fund transportation needs, according to state Transportation Secretary Richard Davey.  He said the fee hikes would not be needed if the Legislature had included a larger tax increase in the transportation funding bill proposed by Gov. Deval L. Patrick last year.  The Legislature approved a 3-cents-per-gallon hike in the gas tax, and raised cigarette taxes to provide an increase of more than $500 million annually in state transportation funding.  Mr. Davey said the need for the fee hikes reflects chronic under-funding of state transportation projects for decades and reliance on borrowed transportation bond funds to cover a portion of its payroll, a practice DOT hopes to phase out completely in the future.  “This is a matter of choices. Balancing needs and wants with our ability to pay for them,” Mr. Davey said.  He told the board the governor and Legislature assumed registry fees would increase 10 percent every five years, when the transportation funding bill was passed. But, “rather than raising all fees by 10 percent, we have targeted three fees for simplicity’s sake that have not been raised in several years,” he said.  “There is never a good time to ask people to pay more, but there is also never a good time to be stuck in traffic, to blow a tire driving over a pothole, to be trapped in a broken-down train or to be cut off from a good job and economic opportunity because you live in a part of the state isolated from good transportation and mobility options,” Mr. Davey said.  Board member Alan MacDonald said the Finance Committee viewed the registry fee increases as an alternative to further hikes in the gas tax. “This does represent something more acceptable in terms of how to pay for the system as an alternative to the gas tax,” Mr. MacDonald said. 

Well it may not be a tax, but the Massachusetts DOT are going to be dipping into your pockets even more. Six dollars more per car. Absolutely ridiculous, and another reason to move to NH. I mean my grandfather is going to pack the car up and camp out in NH till this thing gets shot down by the general public. I mean this is against us, and the DOT went about this totally wrong. Yet they justify it by having public hearings! COME ON MASSACHUSETTS!!!!! WHY DO WE NEED PUBLIC HEARINGS AFTER YOU’VE VOTED ON THE FEE INCREASES?  Shouldn’t you ask the public before you dig into our pockets. Tax and spend liberals…. I’m moving to New Hampshire. NH-Seal-LFoD

Welcome to Revis Island

Derrelle Reivs is a Gamechanger

Derrelle Reivs is a Gamechanger

We all know one player can not win a game, at least not in the National Football League. In the NFL everyone needs to be in harmony to be able to succeed. However, if you have one player you can look at and say “I know that he is going to get his job done every time” it makes the task of every other player on the field that much easier. It is the type of player who makes everyone on the field with them better. That is the type of player Darrelle Revis is, and that is why the Patriots were smart to sign him.

Revis is a future hall of famer, and at 29 going into the 2014-2015 season, he is right in the prime of his career. “Revis Island” is a very real place, a place that no receiver wants to be. Getting Revis will allow Belichick to deploy defensive schemes that he has not been able to since Ty Law was suiting up every sunday. Basically, he can slap Revis on the opposition’s best receiver and scheme the rest of his defense for everyone else. This will allow Devin McCourty to help Alfonzo Dennard, Kyle Arrington, and maybe even Brandon Browner (currently in New England as a free agent) over the top. McCourty is often criticized, but many of his problems came from having too much to worry about on the field. Having Revis cuts down that problem significantly.

The best thing about the Revis deal is the actual deal. For one year 12 million dollars the Patriots are arguably getting a steal. Last off season Revis signed a six year, 96 million dollar deal. That is an average of 16 million dollars a year. Revis had also publicly stated that if he was traded from the Buccaneers he would not restructure his contract. When he was cut, the Patriots knew they could not pay him 16 million a year, but the 12 million still makes him the highest paid corner in the game. The next step is to try to lock him up long term.

If I can give the Patriots any advice about Revis it is this; sign him to a long term deal before the Seattle Seahawks sign star corner Richard Sherman to one of his own. Sherman is now a two time All-Pro, a Super Bowl champion, and arguably the best secondary player in the league. He is going to command the most expensive deal in the league right now, and possibly ever. If there is one downfall with Revis it is his love of money. He seems to feel that his average yearly salary is a status symbol, showing how much better he is than everyone else. I have no doubt that if Sherman signs a monster deal Revis is going to want a bigger one.

All in all the Revis deal is the best case scenerio now for the Patriots. If they can add Browner, who will have to serve a four game suspension to start the year, and he can play they way he had been playing last year, they will have turned one of their biggest holes into one of the strengths of the team. The Patriots still have many holes to fill, but in a relatively weak AFC, this Revis move may have been enough to put them back in the AFC Championship game. When it gets to that point, anything can happen when you have Bill Belichick and Tom Brady.

Twitch Plays Pokemon

MainScreen

http://www.twitch.tv/twitchplayspokemon

I don’t know about you, but I’m a huge fan of the Gameboy pokemon games. If you are not: stop reading. One of my suite-mates showed me this crazy website called TwitchPlays. On this website, the “Internet” works together to beat the game. Together, 24 hours a day, 15,000 to 70,000 users enter commands into this pokemon game while watching the result of the commands via live-stream.

I know what you’re thinking and the game would absolutely be overloaded with 70,000 commands per second. That is why the developer established 2 main modes. Twitch explains it a lot better than me.

TwitchPlaysPokemon now has two modes for determining the input to make in the game, they are called anarchy mode and democracy mode. Anarchy mode is the “classic” mode, where everyone’s inputs are applied immediately. Democracy mode chooses the most popular input provided during a 30 second voting period. Democracy mode is automatically selected at the start of every hour and can be deselected by successfully voting for anarchy mode using democracy mode’s input voting system.

( I have to wonder if he is collecting data on the effects of democracy versus anarchy )

The host also features a live chat so that people who are entering commands can organize and communicate. It has been rather funny to watch thousands of people struggle to beat one game because it is a classic case of one step forward, one backward, two to the right, who the f*&# pressed start, someone press back, we need pokeballs, no we don’t… etc. The main issue is that there is a 30 second delay between typing a command and it being executed. There is also a delay between typing in the chat too. The only thing that isn’t delayed is the screen which you watch the video on. Thousands of players have turned to IRC’s (internet relay chats)  and organizational documents to communicate and coordinate more quickly. Right now they are playing crystal after spending the prior 16 days beating the first pokemon and making it through the elite four. I wish them luck and I’ll be cheering them on… Especially after seeing them make it to the final person of the elite four last night and loose.

The Patriots are Losing the AFC Arms Race

Brady:Manning

The New England Patriots have never been very active in free agency. They last truly big name they brought in was Adalius Thomas back in 2007, and that did not go very well. However, this free agency is heart wrenching so far for Patriots fans not only because of what they are not doing, but because the Denver Broncos are reloading in a big way.

So far in this free agency period the Broncos have signed former Cleveland Brown strong safety TJ Ward who had 110 tackles last season, former Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib, and are rumored to be interested in adding Jared Allen or Demarcus Ware to their defense. All of those players along with the return of Von Miller (2011 Defensive ROY, 2012 Defensive POY runner-up) will lead to a completely reloaded Denver defense. On offense it appears that they could lose Eric Decker, but they will retain Wes Welker, Julius Thomas, and Demaryius Thomas. Denver is doing this because they know Peyton Manning’s championship window is closing. The Patriots need to realize the same thing about Tom Brady.

Tom Brady will be 37 at the start of this coming season. His touchdown and yardage totals have gone down in three consecutive years. His best receiver over the past thirteen years left to play with Manning last year, and the Patriots chose to replace him with an injury prone Danny Amendola. He caught 54 balls this season for 633 yards. Those are about half of Welkers 118 receptions and 1,354 yards in his last year as a Patriot. You could argue that his stats may have been filtered to Julian Edelman, who caught 105 balls for 1,056 yards. However, the Patriots allows Edelman to walk into free agency where he is free to sign with any other team. Behind him on the depth chart remains only Amendola, Aaron Dobson, and Kenbrell Thompkins. Rob Gronkowski is coming off yet another surgery, this one on his knee, and they still need a viable replacement at center for the upcoming season. That does not even begin to point out the problems on defense for this team.

The rumor is the Patriots are going to move to a 3-4 scheme this season. This poses a few problems. First is that they need another starting caliber middle linebacker to play along Jerod Mayo. The word is that they have brought in former Denver middle linebacker Wesley Woodyard to fill the hole left by Brandon Spikes. If they sign Woodyard they still have decisions to make along the defensive line and the secondary. First off, they need to decide what to do with Vince Wilfork. They may cut him, as he is due 8 million dollars this year and is coming off a torn achilles at 32 years of age. If the do, they need to try to resign him at a more team friendly deal. If not they need a nose tackle to go along with another 3-4 defensive end. Although Rob Ninkovich is a fan favorite he does not have the size to play in this scheme, but he could still be used as a situational pass rusher from both the outside linebacker or defensive end position. After that they need to address the secondary.

Now that Talib has signed with Denver the Patriots were supposed to make a move on the next best corner available. Unfortunately the market is pretty dry on top end corners. Brent Grimes resigned with Miami for four years and 32 million dollars. Sam Shields then resigned with Green Bay for four years and 39 million dollars. Vontae Davis resigned with the Colts for four years and 39 million. Finally, the top corner on the free agent market Alterraun Verner signed a relatively modest deal with Tampa Bay for four years and 26.5 million dollars. Now the best corner on the market may be Darrelle Revis, who commands 16 million dollars per year, and has stated that if he is traded he will not renegotiate his contract. That is pretty pricey for any team, nevermind the often frugal Patriots. Along with being out on the top corners, the Patriots cut strong safety Steve Gregory, opening a large hole at that position as well. The top two strong safeties, TJ Ward and Donte Whitner, have both signed new deals with Denver and Cleveland respectively. Thats not to say that the Pats can’t make any impact moves in free agency, but that they have missed out on known entities and may be looking at second tier free agents.

All of this leaves the Patriots with the draft. They have the 29th pick, but have traded out of the first round many times before and could again. If they keep their pick they could look at Jace Amaro tight end from Texas Tech, or one of the two Notre Dame defensive line prospects Stephon Tuitt and Louis Nix III. Nix will only be needed if they cannot retain Vince Wilfork, whereas Tuitt could be a great fit at the left 3-4 defensive end. What I would like them to do is move up and go after one of the better corners in the draft, such as Oklahoma State’s Justin Gilbert or Michigan State’s Darqueze Dennard. Either of those picks would be great fits in the Patriots’ system. However, the draft alone cannot fill all the holes on this team.

The Patriots are a proud franchise. They have been dominant over the last thirteen years, and I have no doubt they will continue to be one of the best teams in football. The problem is players make plays not coaches, so as good of a coach as Belichick is, he cannot do much without quality players on the field. Teams such as the Seattle Seahawks, San Francisco 49ers, Carolina Panthers, Denver Broncos, and Indianapolis Colts are all aiming to be the new dynasty in the NFL. If the Patriots do not start making moves soon they will have wasted the last few years of Tom Brady and will have to start anew.
