After playing a game in the world’s most famous arena, the Creighton basketball team got to meet one of the world’s most famous entertainers.

The Bluejays crossed paths Sunday night with Bono, the lead singer for the rock group U2 who also has been recognized worldwide for his humanitarian works. The chance meeting came at the Teterboro Airport in New Jersey a couple of hours after the Bluejays had lost to St. John’s at New York’s Madison Square Garden.

Jeff Vanderloo, the Bluejays’ director of basketball operations, might have been the first in the Creighton party to spot the rock star. Or maybe it was freshman center Zach Hanson.

“Bono walked out of the bathroom, and Zach was like, ‘That’s Bono!'” Creighton guard Grant Gibbs said. “But Loo kind of initiated things. He can talk to anybody, and it doesn’t matter who it was.”

Vanderloo admits Gibbs’ assessment of his gift for gab is a fair one. Vanderloo said he walked up to Bono and asked, “How you doing? Where you off to?”

Bono replied that he was flying to Los Angeles along with Jimmy Iovine, a record industry executive and co founder of Beats By Dre headphones.

“I told him I was with Creighton basketball,” Vanderloo said. “He asked, ‘Where’s Creighton?’ I said Omaha. He said, ‘You’re from Omaha? I love Omaha. Do you know Warren?”’

Vanderloo said he didn’t personally know Warren Buffett but he knew of him. Bono replied that he had just been in Omaha to sing at Buffett’s granddaughter’s wedding.

“Susan is a great friend of mine,” Bono said, referring to Buffett’s daughter.

Bono is a member of the board of directors of Susan Buffett’s two Omaha based foundations.

Vanderloo asked the singer if he would mind taking a picture with the team. “Nah, no problem,
monster beat by dre headphones Jays bump into Bono
” Bono said.

Bono and Iovine posed for several pictures, which were soon posted on Twitter.

“I’m not a big U2 guy but Bono was really nice,” Gibbs said. “A few guys asked to have individual pictures taken with him. He was real generous. It was cool.”

Vanderloo said most of the players scattered after the pictures were taken but he stuck around and talked to Bono for perhaps 20 or 25 minutes as the team and the singer waited for their planes to be de iced.

“We talked about South Africa and his new song about Nelson Mandela,” Vanderloo said. “We talked about concert ticket prices and college athletics. He said, ‘You guys take private planes?’

“I told him we had to get our guys back to school.”

He was amazed when Vanderloo told him that the Bluejays drew 17,000 to 18,000 people for their games. Bono said he would be returning to Omaha in December for a board meeting, and Vanderloo invited him to a Creighton game.

“He was just a super nice guy,” Vanderloo said. “There was no arrogance to him at all. He seemed like real common folk.”

Overall, the experience brought an end to a big day for the Bluejays. Most of the players and coaches got their first look at Madison Square Garden at the morning shoot around and then played their first game there at night. Then, before returning home, they got a chance to meet Bono.

“Some of our guys that don’t follow that genre of music didn’t think it was that big a deal,” Vanderloo said. “But some of our guys were really pumped.”

Vanderloo liked it for another reason. At 5 foot 9, he usually is one, if not the, smallest members of the travel group. As he stood talking with Bono, he found himself a couple of inches taller that the rock star.

Sean “Diddy” Combs, whose fortune Forbes magazine estimates at $735 million, is No. 1 for a third year in a row in its annual list of hip hop’s five wealthiest artists.

Forbes said Diddy’s portfolio includes a controlling or near controlling stake in the clothing lines Sean John and Enyce, the alkaline water brand Aquahydrate, the tequila DeLeon and the multimedia network Revolt. The magazine also noted that Diddy’s contract with Diageo’s Ciroc vodka could land him at least $100 million if the brand is ever sold.

Andre “Dr. Dre” Young repeats last year’s second place standing, with $700 million, thanks in large part to a $3 billion sale to Apple of his Beats by Dr. Dre headphones. After taxes, his 25 percent share of the company netted him $500 million, Forbes said.

Brooklyn’s Shawn “Jay Z” Carter repeated in third place, after finishing second in 2013. Beyonc’s music mogul husband upped his estimated wealth $30 million over the last year to total $550 million, through such assets as his entertainment company Roc Nation and the Armand de Brignac brand of Champagne, Forbes said, adding, “Streaming service Tidal’s impact remains to be seen.”

Queens native Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson went from No. 5 to No. 4 with $155 million from music and such assets as SMS headphones, Effen vodka and Frigo underwear. And Bryan “Birdman” Williams slipped from fourth to fifth, from $160 million to $150 million, Forbes said, thanks to the uncertain fortunes of his music label Cash Money. The subsidiary of Universal Music Group is home to artists including Drake, Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne.

Forbes compiled the list by analyzing the artists’ past earnings, current holdings and financial documents. The magazine, which reported it spoke to some of the moguls themselves for details on their success, also consulted with analysts, attorneys, managers and “other industry players.”

LOS ANGELES, March 1 (Reuters) Jay Z has climbed past Sean “Diddy” Combs to rank as the world’s wealthiest hip hop artist thanks to heady champagne and cognac investments, according to data released by Forbes magazine on Thursday.

The 48 year old “Hard Knock Life” rapper and music mogul increased his estimated net worth in 2017 to $900 million, up by $90 million from the year before in the annual list compiled by Forbes.

Combs, 48, who had been hip hop wealthiest artist since Forbes first released the list in 2011,

grew his estimated $825 million fortune by a tepid $5 million last year, Forbes said.

The primary driver of Jay Z wealth came from investments in luxury champagne brand Armand de Brignac and D cognac, while lukewarm trends in the vodka and cable television sectors weighed on Combs’ investments in Diageo Ciroc vodka and the TV network Revolt, Forbes said.

Jay Z tenure at the top spot may be short lived. Hip hop third wealthiest figure, Dr. Dre, is expected to add a nine figure windfall of Apple stock to his estimated $770 million wealth this summer,

Diddy, for the second year in a row, claimed the highest spot on the cash countdown, with $62 million thanks to his Ciroc vodka enterprise and a host of other businesses he has ownership in.

The music mogul, who’s been atop the list four of the past five years, has even worked a reference about it on one of his tracks, rapping in 2014’s Big Homie, ‘The only one that’s topping Forbes, I’m gettin’ lonely.’

Coming in second was Jay Z, who brought home a huge slab of bacon $53.5 million, to be exact for wife Beyonce and daughter Blue Ivy. The staggering sum came primarily from his Roc Nation entertainment company, with extras like his champagne and cognac businesses adding to his bottom line.

And in a case of the rich getting richer, Dr Dre who made $620 million in 2014 after Apple purchased his Beats By Dre headphones company, marking the only year Diddy did not rule the financial roost. finished third. rapper pocketed a cool $41 million over the past year, fueled by ongoing profits from his remaining stake in the high end headphones company, in addition to profits from the wildly successful film, Straight Outta Compton.

Rounding out the top ten were Drake with $38.5 million; Wiz Khalifa at $24 million; Nicki Minaj, the only female to make the list, with $20.5 million; Pitbull with $20 million, Pharrell Williams with $19.5 million, Kendrick Lamar at $18.5 million and Birdman with $18 million.

West missed the top 10 altogether, slipping into 11th place overall with $17.5 million. The Chicago native who released his seventh studio album, The Life of Pablo, in February also raked in the dough with his fashion ventures, most notable of which is his Adidas shoe line, Yeezy.

Granted while $17.5 million is nothing to scoff at, the 11th place ranking must sting the driven star who has increased his visibility tremendously with his marriage to Kim Kardashian.

Rounding out the list were DJ Khaled with $15 million; A$AP Rocky with $14.5 million; J. Cole, Lil Wayne and Macklemore Ryan Lewis with $14 million each; veterans Snoop Dogg and Eminem with $12.5 and $11 million, respectively; Alicia Keys’ husband Swizz Beatz with $10.5 million; and Rick Ross and Ludacris tying with $10 million apiece.

The year, on the whole, was the third most lucrative in the 10 years Forbes has compiled its hip hop list, as the staggering sum the top 20 produced added up to $450 million.

The list, according to Forbes, comes from pre tax monies earned from June 2015 to June 2016, factoring in album sales, tours, digital income, publishing revenues, endorsement deals and outside ventures.

The information was gleaned from information provided from Bandsintown, Nielsen SoundScan, Pollstar and the RIAA; as well as interviews the publication conducted with industry figures, including some of the artists.

An estimated 50 people turned out to compete in the first Polar Plunge 5K aboard Naval Air Station Jacksonville Jan. 27. The fun run began and ended at the base’s outdoor swimming pool, and culminated in many of the participants jumping into the pool’s 55 degree water.

The runners had differing opinions on the cold water. “It was a little shock at the end of the run,” said first place finisher Ryan Collins. “But it was refreshing.”

ABH1 Stephanie Matson, who is stationed aboard USS Iwo Jima (LHD 7) at Naval Station Mayport, disagreed. “I thought it was going to be nice,” she said. “But it was quite painful.”

Both agreed the run and the plunge was a lot of fun.

That was the opinion of most of the runners according to MWRFitness Director Jill Sheppard. “I think it went great,” she said. “We got a lot of good feedback. Everyone said it was a great run.”

Sheppard hoped the run inspires participants to achieve other goals they have set for themselves for the new year. “I hope the cold water shocks them into completing resolutions they made.”

Another inspiring part of the event was retired United States Air Force Lt. Col. Barry Bridger, who spoke to the crowd of his experience as a prisoner of war in Vietnam. Bridger spent six years in captivity at the infamous “Hanoi Hilton” from 1967 to 1973.

After speaking to the group as a whole before the run, Bridger also spoke to many people individually. Young Sailors were especially honored to speak with him, such as AWOAN Samuel Kempf and AWOAN Jay Thornton both with Patrol Squadron 30.

The 5K run started soon after Bridger spoke and was an untimed fun run. The first female to cross the finish line was 15 year old Liliana Angulo. The ninth grader at Bishop Snyder High School is already a veteran competitive runner who has competed in 38 triathlons. Angulo is thinking about joining the Coast Guard when she graduates high school.

Another young participant had mixed emotions about the 5K run and polar plunge. Four year old Colin Matson said he had fun, but when asked if he would do it again he shook his head and said “no.”

Children and families dashed through Naval Air Station Jacksonville (NAS Jax) Patriots Grove Dec. 1 for the annual holiday celebration.

Activities included winter themed arts and crafts, bounce houses, an ice slide, snow pit, train rides, photos with Santa, face painting, inflatable activities and balloon artists.

A special appearance by Elf on the Shelf characters kept children mindful of their actions and excited to take pictures. Navy Band Southeast kept the crowd entertained with a unique rock themed performance of pop culture music and the seasonal holiday favorites.

NAS Jax Commanding Officer Capt. Sean Haley addressed the massive crowd of people expressing his gratitude for Community Recreation Director Kristin Riddle and Community Recreation Assistant Brittany Brown for their efforts in hosting such an exciting event. Haley then led the countdown to the lighting of the tree and immediately following, the snow began to fall as children and families jumped and danced near the stage.

“I heard many people say that attendance was even higher than last year. We had well over 1,000 people in attendance,” remarked Riddle, who coordinated the event for the first time.

Hundreds of military families also received free Christmas trees donated by the Christmas Spirit Foundation’s Trees for Troops program. Trees for Troops has provided more than 175,000 Christmas trees to military families and troops in the United States and overseas since 2005.

“I really appreciate this program donating free trees to the military,” said LS2 Jacqueline Jefferson of Patrol Squadron 16. “My son and I will enjoy decorating this tree for the holidays.”

On site sponsors included VyStar Credit Union and USAA.

Neither NAS Jacksonville, MWR nor Jax Air News or any part of the federal government, officially endorses any company or sponsor or their products or services.

The clear, blue sky and perfect weather brought out more than 1,300 families who attended the Fall Fest Nov. 18 aboard Naval Station Jacksonville (NAS Jax) in the grassy lot across from Dewey’s.

First celebrated in 1993, the event coincided with the Month of the Military Family to honor the sacrifices and contributions of military families as they support their service members year round. The Fall Fest is one of the ways that NAS Jax’s Morale, Welfare Recreation (MWR) Department celebrates.

Community Recreation Director Kristin Riddle remarked, “MWR hosts this annual event to celebrate our military families by providing a day where they can come out, relax and spend time together.”

A variety of games and activities were available and allowed family members of any age to enjoy themselves. Such activities included pony rides, a carnival swing, monkey jumper, rock wall, the adrenalator, family photo booth, a bubble artist, game tents, family crafts, free custom airbrush t shirts, a cupcake walk, face painting, glitter tattoos and local craft vendors to shop for gifts for the holidays.

DJ Justin from Progressive Entertainment kept the event live with a selection of popular songs, as well as games for children and families to compete, such as limbo, tug o war, hula hoop contest, sack racing and more. There were also a variety of food and beverages available for purchase from Dewey’s, Snowie Ice Food Truck Cosmo’s Kettle Corn.

On site sponsors included VyStar Credit Union and KB Home. MWR wishes to thank every staff member, volunteer and family who made this event such a success!

Neither NAS Jacksonville, MWR nor Jax Air News or any part of the federal government, officially endorses any company or sponsor or their products or services.

Ten sports in two days, but only one trophy. Members of different commands gathered to compete in the Command Sports Challenge aboard Naval Air Station Jacksonville (NAS Jax) Oct. 19 20.

The Morale, Welfare Recreation (MWR) sports department hosts this two day event each year giving members of every command the chance to compete for the Sports Challenge trophy. This year’s participating commands included Fleet Area Control and Surveillance Facility (FACSFAC), Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training Unit (CNATTU), Transient Personnel Unit/Pre Trial Confinement Facility (TPU/PCF), Navy Region Southeast Reserve Component Command (NRSE RCC), Patrol Squadron (VP) 62, Fleet Readiness Center Southeast (FRCSE) and Fleet Logistics Support Squadron (VR) 62. A total of 333 participants on 12 teams competed in the events each day. Commands were allowed to have multiple teams and could earn bonus points for every female teammate or for having their commanding officer (CO), executive officer (XO) or command master chief (CMC) participating. on Oct. 19 at the outdoor track with a 1,500 meter relay. Following this was the 3 on 3 basketball tournament at the outdoor courts, a dodgeball tournament at the Guy Ballou Tennis Courts, Ultimate Frisbee at Sea King Park and a swim relay at the outdoor pool. By the end of the first day, the scores were as follows: FACSFAC 200 points, CNATTU 275 points, TPU/PCF 250 points, NRSE RCC 300 points, VP 62 325 points, FRCSE 550 points and VR 62 725 points.

beats by dr dre solo hd headphones – white Jason Day beats Alex Noren on 6th playoff hole to win Farmers

beat headphones earbuds Jason Day beats Alex Noren on 6th playoff hole to win Farmers

Monday in front of empty grandstands on No. 18 at Torrey Pines for his first PGA Tour win in 20 months.

There were no roars, just cheers from Day’s family and a handful of mates.

In a rare Monday morning finish, Day took all of 13 minutes to navigate the par 5, 570 yard 18th on the South Course to finish a six hole playoff against Alex Noren to win the Farmers Insurance Open.

Day and Noren had to return after grinding through five playoff holes Sunday before it got too dark to continue.

Spectators weren’t allowed in the next day because organizers said they didn’t have time to arrange for security.

“It was a little strange, but we did have a few people up in the stands, which was nice,” Day said. “It’s great to finish the tournament and all, but it would have been nice to finish yesterday with all the people there.

“I’d play until Wednesday if I needed to get that win,” Day said. “It’s why we get up every morning and practice. This win is just as special as the first one.”

Day also won here in 2015, in a four man playoff that took only two holes. That victory propelled him to a five win season, including the PGA Championship, and the world’s No. 1 ranking.

Noren tried an aggressive second shot, but his ball landed short of the green and rolled into Devlin’s Billabong, a pond that protects the hole.

Day shot over some trees and laid up onto the fairway before hitting a lob wedge approach of about 85 yards, with the ball rolling down several feet to set up the winning putt.

“It was really unfortunate for him to hit it in the water because I know how good of a shot he actually hit there because that’s really tough to go with a 3 wood into a green like that,” Day said.

“I think it’s almost a blessing that I actually missed the fairway knowing that I had to lay up and knowing that I kind of worked on that number before. I was on the range hitting that exact same number.”

Noren, a 35 year old Swede trying for his first PGA Tour win, bogeyed the hole.

“I had a perfect yardage,” said Noren, who played at Oklahoma State and has nine victories on the European Tour. “And the greens are not super firm in the morning like this so I thought it was the perfect play in the middle of the green and have a putt at eagle and a few yards short, so it’s tough.”

Day and Noren matched each other with birdie, birdie, par, par and birdie through five playoff holes in the twilight Sunday on the blufftop course overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

Ryan Palmer was eliminated on the first extra hole with a par.

Ryan and Alex all hit some nice shots coming down the stretch in the playoffs,” Day said. “Going shot for shot with Alex was pretty cool over that five hole stretch, and unfortunately we just couldn’t get it. We just didn’t want to give it up.”

Day was on his “third string” caddie. He said Luke Reardon, who caddied for him at the end of last year, and David Lutterus, who was going to be on the bag, had trouble securing visas.

His third in line, childhood friend Rika Batibasaga, “he’s marrying an American and I knew that he’s in here already,” Day said. “So I was like, ‘I’ve got to grab someone, either grab him or grab someone out of the crowd.'”

Day hopes this victory leads to a turnaround from a miserable 2017, which included his mother recovering from lung cancer and a game that lost some discipline and focus.

“I think last year was a good kick in the butt, you know, not really being talked about and being talked about for the wrong reasons,” the 30 year old Australian said. “Obviously take my mum and stuff out of the equation, but just I see the guys winning, Jordan (Spieth), and Dustin (Johnson) is playing some tremendous golf, Jon Rahm’s playing some tremendous golf, and I feel like I should be there as well, winning.”

Day is currently ranked No. 10 in the world. Getting back to the top is the goal.

“I got there for 51 weeks, but I’ve always wanted to be a dominant No. 1 player in the world and that is going to take time,” he said. “That’s going to take a lot of hard work and dedication because I know how hard it is to get to No. 1 in the world and I know the quality of play that is fighting to get to No. 1 as well.”

wireless beats by dre headphones Jarrod Kimber on why Bangladesh fans are riled

The YouTube video is titled “Ramiz Raza undermines Bangladesh.” It starts with a clip from a post match press conference where Ramiz Raja is speaking to Tamim Iqbal and then it transitions to a young man sitting in front of his computer. The young man starts talking.

“Hi guys, it is regarding about Ramiz Raja, he was taking the interview of Tamim Iqbal yesterday.”

The young man is very focused, very serious, staring straight down the lens. He talks about the interview, and why it bothers him, and then says “Are you fg blind, or are you not watching? I don’t know, I don’t understand, do you have an issue with Bangladesh, or are you just jealous about Bangladesh? Stop doing it, mate. Don’t be fg daft, don’t be fg blind, mate. Stop doing it.”

Then he disappears and Dr Dre’s “The Next Episode” starts playing.

There is no cricket fan who doesn’t get frustrated at cricket commentators. We spend so much time with them, and it’s impossible to like all of them. It might be their voice, their intonation, their accent, their words, their phraseology, their outlook, their biases, their alleged biases, their knowledge, their playing style, their tweeting style, to name but a fraction of the reasons.

There is also the quality of cricket commentary. It would he hard to suggest we are in a golden age, or even a bronze age. At best, it’s a beige age. Cricket broadcasters don’t scour the globe looking for the best and the brightest; they hire ex players who are famous and put them in front of a microphone. The very, very worst usually don’t survive. The very best become household names.

Most fall in the middle ground. They wait anxiously for the call from producers around the world. They have to satisfy production companies, broadcasters, and ever increasingly, cricket boards. It means that they have to be safe, middling by nature. They are often booked at the last minute, they are well compensated, but unless they have a lucrative home board contract, chances are they don’t feel secure.

As many are ex players, they do not do the kind of research a broadcast professional or journalist would, or at least should, do. Off air they often say things like, “I know cricket, so I don’t have to follow it.” Increasingly they are listened to by knowledgeable fans who often know more about the player than the commentator. The frustration brims as the commentator says something wrong. And now with Twitter, there are instant and constant corrections.

It is a hard job, often done poorly.

But most people just don’t take commentators that seriously. They have become the background noise of cricket, rather than the voice of god they once were. There are now also more options to listen to. White Line Wireless and Guerilla Cricket ofter alternative commentary. There is also usually a radio or tune in broadcast that you can sync with your TV. Chances are, cricket will never have another John Arlott or Richie Benaud as the game’s voice.

So with all that, imagine that one commentator was so hated that news stations rerun his commentary to highlight how bad he is, that cricket journalists pen open letters about his behaviour and people burn effigies of him in the street.

Now imagine this man is the well coiffed slick package of Ramiz Raja. For most cricket fans, a harmless commentator who can occasionally gaffe. To Bangladeshis, the enemy.

“We dont want Ramiz Raza as a commentator during Bangladesh match in Worldcup Cricket 2015” says the title of the petition. They wanted 1000 people to sign, but ended with only 352. Though not having it also in Bengali might have limited its reach. One of the comments, from ‘Name not displayed’, says, “His comments is hurting so many peoples hearts”.

If it were just fans, it would be one thing; it is far more than that. An open letter was written by Azad Majumder, the sports editor of the Daily New Age in Bangladesh, for the cricket website Cricwizz. His letter lists what are essentially the main concerns of Bangladesh fans. “I know you are not a great fan of the Bangladesh cricket team,” says Majumder. “For years you have ridiculed Bangladeshi players knowingly or unknowingly.” He then goes on to mention the Afghanistan Bangladesh game of the 2015 World Cup.

And this is an important game. It was the first time Afghanistan ever made it to the World Cup. They were rightly feted for making it,
beats audio headphones Jarrod Kimber on why Bangladesh fans are riled
and for existing in the first place. Almost everyone who watched that game as a neutral wanted Afghanistan to win. It was a party in their honour. Ramiz was probably no different. Majumder writes, “From the very beginning of match, you, as a commentator, tried to give an impression that Bangladesh were scared of facing Afghanistan.” This was a game Majumder was at, so he, by his own admission, heard about Ramiz’s crimes largely through social media. But the previous game between these teams Afghanistan had won.

This meant that many thought Afghanistan had a chance of winning the match. No one saw Afghanistan as a favourite, but they saw them as a danger side. That is not how Bangladesh fans saw it, and they saw it even less like that when Ramiz spoke. The idea that their team could be afraid of Afghanistan was a personal affront.

Recently at the first PSL, Ramiz made an error in suggesting Lendl Simmons had won Man of the Match in a game, where the honour actually went to Shakib Al Hasan. Which might sound like nothing, but then a few days later, something else happened.

As Majumder explains, “When Tamim Iqbal came to collect his Man of the Match award, you told him, ‘Tamim: I can’t speak your language. What then? English?’ It was unbecoming of a man of your stature who has been involved in commentary for years.”

Now if you are not Asian, or well versed in Asian culture, you need to understand what suggesting someone may not speak English means it means they are not cultured, they are not educated.

According to Ramiz, “That was a very polite introduction to his Man of the Match award conversation it was [about] whether he was comfortable, because I couldn’t speak Bengali, and I knew he wouldn’t be comfortable speaking Pashto, because he was playing for Peshawar. So would English be a good medium?” That might have been what Ramiz thought it was, but to Bangladeshis, who in part separated from Pakistan over their language, it was seen as a sly dig.

You also have to understand how cricket productions work. They are not always completely professional. In this case, no one had checked with Tamim what language he wanted to speak. There were four languages involved: Pashto, Urdu, Bengali and English. To complicate matters further, when the Bangladesh women’s team toured Pakistan and India, they were told not to talk in Hindi or Urdu.

Perhaps it should have been sorted before, perhaps Ramiz should know what languages Tamim speaks after all these years of his career and as he had actually interviewed him before. As Majumder wrote:

“It was your duty to do your homework and you get paid for this. Tamim Iqbal is one of the few cricketers in Bangladesh who speaks very good English. He has been playing international cricket for nearly a decade. You, being a commentator, following the Bangladesh team over many matches, should have known this. Or you should not have taken the microphone.”

Now he has a point, but also, if we were to stop using cricket commentators for what they should know, Channel Nine would have a commentary team of about two people, and a huge percentage of the most famous ex players in the world would be out of work.

The next video that autoplays after the scary sweary young Bangladeshi’s message for Ramiz is titled, ‘Ramiz Raja mocks Shoaib Malik’. In that video, Malik walks up to get his cheque for Man of the Match and Ramiz’s first question is, “Urdu or English?”

The problem with this is, it doesn’t see how much Bangladesh has grown, and how much their fans don’t want to be seen as a low point for another side. That is the Bangladesh of five years ago, ten years ago, the easy beats. Not the Bangladesh of now, the very well put together ODI side who are building a fortress at home, quarter finalists in the World cup, should have beaten India at home. They are many things, but no longer a low point.

And remember this is Ramiz talking about Pakistan. His team, that he is passionate for. He is upset about where they are going as a team, why they are failing, and even mentioning that they could learn from Bangladesh. But that is not enough to distinguish from his anger that his team cannot beat Bangladesh, and that is what angers them.

Bangladesh was once part of Pakistan. When New Zealand won their first Test series ever, it was in Dhaka. They fought a war in 1971. Blood was spilt, the countries were divided. Since then, Pakistan has always been the better known country. It has a bigger economy, and in cricket they have won the World Cup and the World T20. For most of their existence in cricket,

Bangladesh have either not even been a Test nation or been the Test nation people ignore.

Despite now being a card carrying addict the Place For Friends, I’ll admit that I was in no way an early adopter when it came to MySpace. I stuck with Friendster for as long as I could; until I could hear the wind and tumbleweeds whistling through the CPU of Friendster central. On the day I left, I swear I saw a lonely tear fall from the perma smiley Friendster logo. Nor was I prepared for how much it would suck to be considered (ha!) a music industry professional while within that pit of lies.

Initially, I kept my “space” strictly social; people I knew, people I’d like to know. Then their friends, then their friends of friends. Then a few big ticket famous people (whether or not their profiles were legit), just so I looked cool and connected (because, you know, I just know Nicole Richie and Dolly Parton and I would be best friends).

Back in the early days, music on MySpace wasn’t as much of a phenomenon as it is now (see: Lily Allen, Sandi Thom); it was more of a Friendster thing oh, this band is cool, I’ll add them.

But then, gradually, slowly, it started. Like Them! or The Blob, friend requests started dribbling in from bands I’d never heard of, who could only be judged by their genre. Indie/powerpop/rock from California. Speed metal/hardcore/punk from Queensland. Hawaiian/metal/folk from Melbourne. The exceptions were mysterious add requests from Eddie Money and Glenn Shorrock.

And maybe it was because my occupation is listed as rock critic, perhaps because my reputation precedes me, but along with the add requests came sinister messages: “Hi Clem! We’ve just uploaded some new songs, were wondering if you could have a listen and tell us what you think!”

Then more: “Hi CLEM! Here’s a flyer for our ALBUM LAUNCH really hope you can make it! cheers and thanks.” And more: “Hi Clem, we’re playing the Two Dog RSL in Bumf k, Victoria this Tuesday and we’d love it if you could come along. Message us if you want to be on the doorlist!”

Many times I considered replying, “I would rather eat dirt than listen to more substandard music than I am already required to submit to in my line of business” (sometimes in fewer and more offensive words than that), but generally I just let them slide. If I like the look and sound of the band, I’ll add them but no free market appraisals from this rock’n’roll real estate agent.

Besides, who cares what I think? What are they going to put on their press release, “Clem Bastow listened to our songs on MySpace and said ‘LOL U GUYZ ROK THX 4 DA ADD xx'”? Glitter GIFs don’t translate well into print.

Of course, I know I’m not alone in being pestered by the largely dull muso masses many of these drongos spam absolutely everyone, and add just as many. Since Tila Tequila hit the 1.5 million plus “friend” mark, everyone seems to be clamouring to match her (I sit at a respectable 1036, at least 36 of whom I actually know).

I just wish they’d put a bit of effort in, or at least be entertainingly wacked out, like the guy on a yacht who tried to tell me the LA Chief Of Police had been fired for “hurtting peple with the energy weapon” and “thought crimes; the brain gait preventing peple from sleeping!

And if not effort of a crazy kind, then at least bothering to read up on the sort of stuff I like (not that there’s a discernible golden mean amongst what I like and/or don’t like), or seeing if I’m within 25kms of their hometown before they send me an invite to their gig. Either that or I’ll start spamming them: “Hay guys, here’s a flyer for my blog, hope you can come read it!”

As for Glenn Shorrock, he never even sent me a message or a “thanks for the add” comment. Friendwhore. turning bits of other songs into new songs) still amazes me, there are times when I wish the song being sampled would be treated to as much fanfare as its chopped and changed cousins.

And so, this week’s Monday Mix Tape presents to you a gaggle of songs I’d like to reclaim from their sample happy reinventions; some you’ll know, some you might not (but all are easily found on iTunes or compilations, or the original albums, if you’re into that; weirdo), but at least you can make it into a dinner party playlist and seem incredibly well informed and hip. Or just old; it’s a chance you’ll have to take.

John Cougar Mellencamp Jack And Diane

(also known as: Jessica Simpson I Think I’m In Love With You)

Seriously, who sits down to write a hysteria pop hit for the world’s second most famous virgin and has a light bulb go off when they think, “I know, what this song needs is some MOTHERF KING JOHN MELLENCAMP!” Well, someone must have, because I Think I’m In Love With You is hands down the stylish Jessica Simpson’s best song, and by “Jessica Simpson’s”, I do mean John Cougar Mellencamp’s Jack And Diane has never sounded as massive as it did soundtracking Jessica’s spinning around on the docks with her spirit fingered mates. And it’s about time Jack And Diane was rescued from Classic Hits eternity and given its rightful props.

(also known as: 2Pac Dr Dre California Love)

As much as I’ll always love California Love, Woman To Woman deserves to be reclaimed if only to shut up the haterz who think that Joe Cocker is only about You Can Leave Your Hat On and Up Where We Belong. This 1973 slab of deep soul blooze is sexy, compelling and danceable in the same sentence, its hypnotic bass/piano/brass coupled with a heavenly chorus of female backing vocals and Cocker’s impassioned, soulful performance up front

Chic He’s The Greatest Dancer

(also known as: Will Smith Gettin’ Jiggy With It)

The Not So Fresh Prince is the master of the barely re worked sample, from Wild, Wild West and its Stevie Wonder I Wish reappropriation to Chasing Forever and its Ribbon In The Sky nicking (also Stevie), but this was the most memorably blatant perhaps because, unlike other regularly sampled Chic songs, He’s The Greatest Dancer loomed large even in the minds of non trainspotting sample hounds; it’s a staple of classic hits radio and, as such, Smith had some nerve trying to fool people into thinking it was his masterwork.

Gentleman June Gardner It’s Gonna Rain

(also known as: Lily Allen Knock ‘Em Out)

While Knock Em’ Out’s varied pick up put downs are hilarious (“I’m pregnant . My house is on fire . Allen rhymes and sings on top of a loop of the song’s rolling piano riff) only serves to illustrate, well, just how good It’s Gonna Rain is. The scattered howls of “ALRIGHT!!” are packed full of more heart than anything master stylist Allen has done.

(also known as: Tone Loc Funky Cold Medina)

If I were a stripper, I’d wear a slingshot and bobby socks and dance to this song; seriously the greatest band slut anthem of all time (and, of course, Lou Gramm is the biggest slut of all,
wireless beats by dre headphones January 2007 Archives
coming on harder than Pamela Des Barres on Wyld), it was too cruelly chopped and changed by the (still awesome) Funky Cold Medina. In that song’s mini riff loop form, you miss Gramm’s superhot vocals and also the various ill advised guitar solos and single entendres of the lyrics. And that is a tragedy.

JAMES CITY Pound for pound, Jamestown’s Caden Darber may be the best high school wrestler in the immediate area.

“That’s my opinion,” said Jamestown coach Richard Pennycuff. “And if you ask a majority of the coaches, a lot of them I think would tell you the same thing.”

Darber didn’t do anything to cause anyone to think differently at Lafayette’s Ram Rumble. The sophomore claimed the tournament title Saturday night at 126 pounds and improved to 28 1 on the season.

Darber’s lone loss this season came at 132 pounds against a Brooke Pointe High School wrestler.

Darber finished the two day, 29 team Lafayette tourney 5 0 and defeated Brian Swenson of 5 A Princess Anne by a 13 7 decision for the title.

“I watched the match before and I knew he was aggressive,” said Darber. “I knew he took a lot of shots. I had a good defense. And I had to turn him as many times as I could. He was an aggressive opponent and (it was) a great match.”

The disappointment of falling in the semifinals of last season’s Ram Rumble left a bad taste in Darber’s mouth. He wanted to improve upon the third place finish.

“Coming out with a win is a big deal to me,” said Darber.

An even bigger deal and an even more satisfying vengeance would be winning a state title. Darber was runner up at 126 last season and finished his freshman campaign 47 3 overall.

When Darber knocked off the defending 3 A state champion a season ago in the state semifinals, the state wrestling community began to take notice of the Jamestown grappler.

Colleges took notice, too. Although Darber is only a sophomore, Pennycuff said he’s already regularly in touch with interested Division I coaches.

It’s Darber’s work ethic that most impresses his coach.

“He works harder than anybody in the room,” said Pennycuff.

Jamestown slowly brought Darber back down to 126, where he’ll finish the season. Pennycuff likes where Darber currently is physically as well as his intensity level.

Darber has a little over a month until the state championships in Salem, should he advance that far. That’s certainly where his sights are set.

“Leaving the state tournament with a second place medal is not that good,” said Darber. “So maybe I can come back with a first.”

Bruton’s Ian Gruver, seeded fourth, was the only other area wrestler competing to place on Saturday. He finished fourth at 160 pounds with loss to sixth seeded Caelen Connor of Kellam.

Williamsburg wrestlers reaching the quarterfinals were Lafayette’s Griffin Hurt (160), Ryan Davis (152) and August Trembry (182) as well as Bruton’s Alberto Boites (195) and Jaquille Fyffe Blair. (220).

Phillip Robinson and Mike Jameson are leading the fundraising battles in their respective Davidson County judge races, with Election Day one week away.

Robinson, running in the Democratic primary for former Judge Barbara Haynes 3rd Circuit Court seat, reported raising $92,085, while spending $37,619 of that sum in his campaign.

Robinson opponent, attorney Stan Kweller, reported a campaign war chest of $70,390, but that figure includes a $34,400 loan. Kweller has spent $57,266.

Local candidates in Metro March 6 primary were required to submit financial disclosures to the Davidson County Election Commission Tuesday to report total fundraising and spending figures through Feb. 25.

Early voting concluded Tuesday evening.

Jameson, appointed as General Sessions judge by the Metro Council in November, reported raising $55,279. Combined with a $33,000 loan, the former East Nashville councilman reported receipts of $88,279. Jameson spent $46,167 through Feb. 25.

General Sessions judge candidate Jack Byrd, meanwhile, raised $12,469 and gave his campaign a $9,466 loan, thus disclosing total receipts of $21,935. Byrd reported spending $11,993 as of Feb. 25.

Rachel Bell, another General Sessions judge candidate, reported more than $39,000 raised, including a $6,843 loan. Bell has spent $33,634.

The winners of the Circuit Court and General Sessions Democratic primaries will be heavy favorites when they take on independent candidates in August. Republicans aren holding primaries for these local judgeships.
