So Compton is meh at best. It's more of a compilation edited by Dr. Dre than it is a Dr. Dre album, he has two features on every single track which means he only ever really has one verse per track. It's timetime to admit that there true genius of 90s hip hop and gfunk rap was Nate Dogg. On a related note Warren G released a "sequel" to Regulate... G Funk Era. It's got Nate Dogg all over it and it's better than Compton because of Nate Dogg.
I'd watch that show over Hannibal too if it ever comes back for season 2! For real though, I've never stopped watching a show, especially one that was about to conclude. I'll definitely come back to Hannibal one day and rewatch from episode one. But right now I just don't care to invest the effort to pay attention to it.
That was a crazy ass card, so much blood. And the two least entertaining (McGregor and Stephens) fights ended with very exciting knockouts. I hated McGregor before the fight, but after when him and Mendes shook hands and congratulated each other, I realized how hard I fell for his persona.... Dude is just trying to sell tickets, and shit is he good at it.
Congrats Fellside and hph, you guys signed Jeremy Evans today. He'll never get off your bench, but when he does you'll get excited! He's a front runner for one of the nicest dudes in the league, and he's got the highest vert in the NBA. If he developed a jump shot and didn't have the physique of a bulimic Kevin Garnet he would be a legit rotation player in the league, instead he'll make a career of working hard and cheering from the bench.... and throwing down hightlights in garbage time.
Don't forget Bobby Portis, the guy drafted by Chicago tweeted out that Pau Gasol was soft and wasn't as good as people thought and then tweeted "fuck Derrick Rose #teamheat" or something like that. Pretty hilarious. I heard the Pistons had their heart set on Johnson and no matter who fell they were going to take him. I think he's got a chance to be a better pro than a college player, but we'll see. Jazz got Trey Lyles, which is the least sexy pick possible. But I'm hoping he turns into a solid backup big man in the vein of Boris Diaw.

Not a huge fan of the Sklar brothers, but don't dislike them either. Might take a look at that one because I don't really have a sports podcast. The Fighter and The Kid isn't really a sports podcast even though they'll talk about MMA a lot. I really liked Moshe Kasher and Neil Brennen's The Champs podcast, but they only have a new episode twice a year or so at this point. Heard okay things about his Hound Tall podcast so maybe I'll check that out too. Tom Segura might be my favorite comedian, his Completely Normal standup special was amazing. I just don't really care for his Your Mom's House podcast with his wife, its just too weird for me to listen to regularly.
I watch Hannibal, but honestly I don't care for it much anymore and wasn't that upset when I heard it was cancelled. It's technically a great show, but so slow I just can't care about it. That said I really liked Sons of Anarchy until the last 5 seconds, so what do I know.
