The NBA season this year has been crazy with teams playing almost every night since the lockout ended. Teams barely even have time to practice and get better but, where the teams stand now with two weeks left till the playoffs start. You can kind of tell who’s in and who’s out. I have my picks on who’s in the playoffs, what two teams will meet in the finals, and what team I think will walk away with the whole thing. From the eastern conference I think it will be Chicago, Miami, Indiana, Boston, Atlanta, Orlando, Philadelphia, and New York. From the western conference I think it will be Oklahoma City, San Antonio, LA Lakers, LA Clippers, Memphis, Houston, Dallas, and Denver. I think the Bulls will be in the finals if Derrick Rose is healthy and Oklahoma City but, the San Antonio spurs could change that the way they have been playing lately. I think when it is all said and done the Bulls will walk the trophy because they have so much depth at each position they have the best record in the NBA for a reason and that’s without playing most of the games with last years MVP of the year. Derrick Rose lead them when there 23-6 at home and 21-8 away I just think that they are going to be the champions this year and that is my pick to win the Chicago Bulls.
Have you ever seen Toddler’s and Tiaras? All of those little girls have so much fun getting dressed up to show off their talents. They get to have their hair done, nails done, and wear any outfit they want. It’s honestly the cutest thing. People seem to think it’s horrible for a mother to make her child do that. It’s the same thing as forcing your child to play a sport that they don’t even like. There isn’t anything wrong with it but, it’s such a controversial topic. Its one thing if the mother is living through her daughter and the only reason she’s in the pageant is because the mom wants her to be. The majority of those girls absolutely love getting up on that stage so everyone can see them. It’s the parents choice of what their child does, and no one has the right to say anything about it.
Odd Future. Unless you’ve been existing under a sound-proof pebble down by the lake, you’ve probably been exposed to the rap collective known as “Odd Future.” turbulent lyrics of death, Adventure Time, a Cartoon Network series, and Taylor Swift? The LA group of rappers have never been camera-shy. It seems like everyone has their opinion on them. Personally I enjoy their music. Recently, Jeremy Paxman of BBC Newsnight sat down with a few members of the group to get a better feel for who they are and their opinion on the crazy fan base they’ve seemed to form. He talked to the praised musicians in a rather condescending way. As a worshiped Chicago native says, “Number one rule is niggas gon’ hate.”

“Dance Moms” dance teacher, Abby Miller, pulled one of the most controversial moves yet! On an episode of “Dance Moms,” the little girls took the stage at the fire and ice competition in Pittsburgh with a rather risqué Vegas showgirls-esque routine. Skimpy outfits, feathery fans, you name it. Terrible you say? Not in the eyes of Abby. Her approach to the situation: “The idea of the fan dance is you give the illusion that you’re nude underneath the fans, which, c’mon, we all know you have tan bras and tan tights on.” Thanks for the clarity. “Everyone in the industry knows that the girls are completely covered and everything is harmless,” she says…and in a sense, she’s right. But is it any less degrading? You can tell the judges were uncomfortable and Personally, I think all that they were missing was a pole. But tell me what you think!
