Last night the Celtics basically killed the Magic to practically put themselves into the finals facing (probably) the Lakers. They’ve turned the heat on when needed too and last night was no different. They’re...
I bought Mayer Hawthorne’s album a few months back as Molly recommended him to me. He’s music is straight from the Motown era sounding similar to Smokey Robinson.

I’ll post it up on here when I’m finished. I’ve also...

The Roots and John Legend are releasing an album...

Damn I’m excited already. For the full story look after the break The Roots and John Legend are recording a covers album inspired by an Arcade Fire song – but without any tracks from...
