104 wins can you believe it? *Joe Castig voice* now the real fun begins!
This team deserves a much deeper diving into (which will come) but for tonight it's off the cuff emotion!
Mondo credit to the Yanks for making it a series and taking the first two but the Red Sox can only be held in check for so long. I feel a lot better after taking the finale. A sweep there worries me idgaf. You wanna play well going into October, I think it matters. Look at the 2016 Sox. As for tonight (continued) it feels FANTASTIC to party for a division title in the Bronx. This time they're doing after a win, which is really cool. Yeah, E-Rod stunk on ice and Hembree was obviously horrible but that is not a surprise. I wouldn't trust Heath Hembree to park my car. Mookie Betts taking over a game shouldn't be a surprise either.
ECK, IT'S TIME TO PARTY!!!
So many great moments have taken place this season and it's been an incredible ride but the sad truth about this team is that it will only be remembered by what is does (or does not) accomplish in October.
I personally think anything short of a deep ALCS seiries will be a disappointment. It's gonna be a historic season one way or another. Really hope it's for good ones. Oh sweet as I edit this Kimbrel gives up a lead off triple.
The last two seasons the Wild-Card AL East team ended up in the ALCS, not the Sox. The playoffs have been over before they even started. It's not fun!
I expect rock fights in the playoffs but if the Sox can't get out of the ALDS I'm gonna KMS.
I do think the AL is wide open. Luckily the Astros/Indians will force one of the two biggest threats to eliminate the other.. Everybody scares me; but I also think we can beat anybody. Given the history of the rivalry idk how any Red Sox fan can go into a Yankee series truly confident? ESPECIALLY in a short series. Fuck that. The Tribe scares me the most even though they'll enter the postseason with the fewest wins of any American League club. Luckily that would be in the ALCS with homefield. They're (indians) built to win in October, have been there before and have the best manager in baseball. Plus the whole win it for Wahoo thing. White people killing yet another Indian--smh, It's not gonna be easy. Especially with this pen. Luckily I think the Sox might be able to piece it together with guys who haven't had as large of regular season roles. We could see Steven Wright, Poyner, Workman getting big playoff spots. No thanks with Hembree or Barnes.
I'm rambling but just had to give my sox some love. For tonight let's celebrate something that still deserves a ton of love. The Red Sox are AL East Champs. That is a big deal. This team has not won the division that often, their 2000's mini-dynasty was fueled by wild-card spots. And to do it three straight years is just incredible. No John Farrell so I love the chances in the playoffs.
As for who I'd rather face in the playoffs...I'd rather see A's. They have been a great story but just don't have the starters to scare you. Although that pen is a different story. I actually have a lot of love for this franchise so should they beat the Sox it'd be a million times easier to handle emotionally. Yankees playoff series win will crush me like the 98 DMB classic.
Playing this while you read might not be the worst idea tbh.
LET'S FUCKING GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
After trading away Brandin Cooks and losing the ever mansome Danny Playoffs in free agency the Patriots receiving core was questioned all offseason (with great reason).
Is this really what the Patriots are going give 41 year old Tom Brady to work with? Phillip Dorsett and Cordarrelle "stone hands" Patterson? Jesus Dude, it made me start believing the conspiracies that the Pats are trying to annoy and disrespect Brady into retirement.
It was the hottest topic on sports radio in Boston. Many were comparing this core to the 2006 and 2013 Patriots (both teams that made it to AFC Championship Games) as the worst Brady has ever had. While I agreed it was one of the worst WR cores he's ever had (while Jules is out), this team stil has Gronk (greatest TE of all time...nbd) and James White but man, oh man, did they need to make an upgrade.
Dez Bryant has been the popular name for months of Patriot fans for guys the team should sign. I too was in that camp. He's basically been begging on social media for a chance to come to Foxboro.
But as an intelligent Pats fan I began to realize the Patriots likely weren't going to ever make this move. Idk exactly why? I know he's had low catch % numbers the last few years, but he's still a freak athlete who'd fill a huge need in the Patriots offense.-- frankly imo he fell victim to a serious change of offensive philosophy of the Cowboys with the additions of Zeke and Dak. This wasn't Tony Romo ball where he flurished. He wasn't getting the consistent love he'd need. Maybe that's why Pats were saying no? But the difference is even if they got 2017 Dez-- I think it's a big addition.
I think with Tom Brady Dez could've figured it out and been more than effective. People who try to sound smart will say how complicated the Patriots offense is for wide receivers but I think he would've been able to figure it out.
But whatever, none of that matters as the Patriots added the young more dynamic (with incredibly more baggage) Josh Gordon. I was fucking shocked when I heard the Browns were going to cut him. To me it made no sense just makes no sense if what the reports of why he got cut are true. Something about getting hurt at photo shoot? How that happens?...idk.
I am amazed that this is the straw that broke the camel's back in Cleveland. A talent like Josh Gordon is on par with the best in the league. He's been given all these chances (granted for offenses that shouldn't be a big deal) because of a 14 game stretch in 2013. It was legendary. 87 receptions for an astounding 1646 yards (which lead the NFL). He did this with Jason Campbell, Brandon Weeden and Brian Hoyer. The issue is that season (which was 5 years ago) has been the only season where Gordon played more than 8 games He didn't play any in 2015 OR 2016. Most of the stuff (if not all) was for weed. Which fucking ridiculous. I'm not gonna get on my I love weed more than most things soapbox right now. but the TL;DR verison is there are way worse things players have done and gotten much less punishment.
This is the classic Patriot risk move to me which is why I love it. They could have a semi-sure thing with Dez Bryant. I still wouldn't hate adding him to the roster. Who cares if it takes Brady a few weeks to build a relationship with him (they could go 9-7 and win this division)? They are just risking a conditional 5th round pick. The fact that they'd rather do that than just spend money on Dez shows their confidence in him. Sure they could just sign Dez but Josh Gordon is a 1st round talent. With even a 41 year old Tom Brady I think we could see shades of 07 Moss. He's miles ahead of any QB who's ever thrown him an NFL pass. The thing is the Patriots don't even need that out of him. If Gordon can be a deadly decoy, who at any time could take the top off of the defense-- that's really all they need to open everything else up for the other guys. I love the move. Some people think this is going to be OchoCinco all over again.
I sure fucking hope not for the sake of the Patties (and my fantasy team).
I don't care about how "complex" the Pats offense may or may not be. Josh Gordon is such a fucking monster WR (who is still just 27) they can give him like 5 routes and it'll be fine.
That game was what really put Josh Gordon on the map even though he had been on a historic pace already. These are league records he broke in 2013.
That play reminds me of the Tebow to Thomas walkoff TD. Just pure athleticism by a beast WR on a relatively short route. Just outrunning and outmanning everybody. This is what the Patriots are hoping for, it's what we're all hoping for. I am sooo excited to see what happens with this guy in New England. Even though the Pats looked horrible yesterday (missed 98% of the game cause I was in a car home from NJ and only saw the series where Brady fumbled on 3rd down deep in Jag territory with a chance to make it a one score game) but this changes everything. With Edelman coming back soon the Pats just really need to win one of the next two games before they be all systems go like they always do after September struggles.
In 2012 the Patriots were 2-2 after 4 games and 3-3 after 6 and still went 12-4 and made it to the AFC title game (where they were leading at half time)
In 2014 the Patriots started 2-2 and were blown out on Monday Night Football by the Chiefs and were declared "not good anymore".
In 2017 the Patriots started 2-2 and made all the way to the Super Bowl with a 13-3 regular season under their belt.
My point is even if they start slowly getting him incorporated into the offense it really doesn't matter. This is a playoff and late in the season move.
As for the Browns...to think they were gonna cut this guy for nothing is so fucking Browns it hurts. I'm glad they smartened up and traded him to get something, and that something is a conditional 5th round pick from the New England Patriots. A price we'll all gladly pay for ring #6. Yes the Super Bowl is back on, we are not the Jags who just won the week 2 Super Bowl because they beat us. We're doing full boners people. Josh Gordon is a New England Patriot and the Patriots are going to save his career just like they've done for a long line of guys who looked done or had "troubled" pasts. This isn't Corey Dillon shit, it was fucking weed bro. The best plant on earth. SMH. Go Pats.
Should Brady pull a Kobe and change his number? Go back to the Michigan 10? Josh Gordon seems to be pretty attached to the number.
Just a thought.

100 wins for your Boston Red Sox in 2018! Holy Shiiit. Most wins in the league by a mile, best regular season since 1946. Japan was still on fire from Fat Man and Little Boy last time the Sox hit triple digit wins. Like Aaron Lewis once said; it's been a while.
I honestly believed going into this season the Red Sox would win the division over the Yankees, but I did not expect them to be this far ahead, playing this well up to this point. The Red Sox are 100-46. The all-time team win record is 105 set in 1912. With 16 games to play they should smash that. Just like their 2013 counterpart-- this team has not sustained a losing streak over 3 games. They play great on the road, can beat you in a variety of ways, and have proven they can beat the bests even with their JV team.
Being a Boston sports fan I've been cautiously optimistic this whole season. It's not always fair, but the success of all four teams has caused a "championship or bust" mentality for fans. We judge teams off the Patriot standard and that's not fair. i think people are starting to turn around that mentality, but I know personally, that's how I used to feel. Obviously I want the Sox to win the World Series this year but I don't think if they come up short this season will be a failure. I just don't want them to be some dubious team like the 01 Mariners who won 116 games but were gentlemen's swept in the ALDS.
To me it's all about being competitive in the playoffs. That's all I want. Give me some sort of run. With a 5 game series the playoffs can be over by the end of the weekend. After starting off game 1 of the 2016 ALDS with a 1-0 lead once Brock Holt got throw out at home things went south. They were swept to shock of many. Then the next year despite winning the division and a respectable 93 games again they lost to the Astros in 4 and were noncompetitive for the first two games of the series. They looked overmatched and on completely different levels.
If the Sox lose a tough ALCS to the Tribe or Stros in 6 or 7 this year is a win to me. I just think (I'm guilty af) a lot of fans this year have been harping on the bullpen struggles and whether this team is built for the playoffs or not. I'm worried too. I'm hoping some guys can emmurdge in September to be October heroes. They really only need 2 guys to step up. I think Workman will be one of them when all said and done. He handled high leverage situations for sox in 13 and has been a solid weapon out of the pen the last two years after battling back from injury.
I'm kinda going everywhere here but it's late and I just wanna talk Sox. I should have written more about them this year it's been such a fun season. JD Martinez may end up with MLB Triple Crown. Something that hasn't been done in 50+ years either. Mookie is proving he's a top 3 player in the entire game. Xander has had a incredibly solid season. Been a little overshadowed by those guys + Benny but he's having a career year. Speaking of Benny. I think he's a guy who could have a big October. He's homer in both series he's played in when most other bats remained silent. He's a stud and I'm he's my pick for some big RBI moments. Of course I'm worried the bullpen is gonna ruin everything. It's all Dumbo teams have done. Look at the Tigers dynasty that wasn't. But what if they win the whole fucking thing? I don't want my only memories being me worrying about October from June-September. The Red Sox have won 100 games for the first time since 1946 and it looks like they have no intentions of slowing down. Let's stay healthy and keep rolling because while 100+ is cool we want 11 in October.
Some of my favorite moments of the season

I was watching the Pats yesterday when CBS aired a commercial for Super Bowl 53 aka Super Bowl LIII.
Like really, already, dude?
It's fucking September. Can we let the season breathe for two seconds?
This is like if stores had Halloween candy out in March, or if someone sent you a save the date for a wedding three years in advance. Relax, NFL.
Look I get it CBS, everybody is back...you're excited, you wanna spread the news that 85% of football fans already know (that you have the Super Bowl this year) but just chill out man. I don't wanna be thinking about the Super Bowl during week one. Can you let me enjoy the life of this season before you start advertising its funeral on its birthday (basically)?
Speaking of the Super Bowl, George Foreman has been more creative naming his children than the NFL has been with Super Bowl logos since 2011.
This is the logo for Super Bowl LIII:
Guess what 52's looked like?
Wanna take a stab at 51?
In the league's defense they really thought outside of the box for Super Bowl 50.
You could argue this lack of creativity stems all the way back Super Bowl XL...but at least then there were colors in the mix. Ever since Super Bowl XLV they've been pretty much the same, boring, trophy-centered design.
It's just such a let down. Like this league has more money than God, and not only can they not provide former players proper health benefits, but they can't even spend the $500 to get a junior in college graphic design major to come up with something cool and unique to the city? It really isn't that hard.
I know this is a kind of stupid hill to die on, but seriously this is just another case of the No Fun League. I remember being a kid and getting excited to see what the logo would be and now it's just add a digit to last years. It's lazy and sad, and not getting the attention it deserves. The NFL already killed throwback unis and now they're killing the arts too!
This is the NFL's official quote on the matter:
“Historically, the National Football League (NFL) commissioned a new logo for the Super Bowl every year; the design’s theme was inspired by the host city. But starting with Super Bowl XLV in 2011, the logo no longer changed from year to year…A sports event of this stature needed a consistent, iconic identity — a symbol that fans could immediately recognize, much like the Olympic rings. The Vince Lombardi trophy, bestowed on league champions each year, was the ideal inspiration for a lasting symbol. Working with the NFL’s in-house designers, we created a logo befitting the trophy’s prominence.”
It's stupid and so full of themselves to compare the Super Bowl to the Olympic rings. That's way more historic than the Super Bowl, and newsflash idiots......
The Olympics have a different logo every time that's unique to the city in addition to the rings.
Look at how fire these used to be. Here are some of my personal favorites.
Obviously biased, but Super Bowl XXXVI is the goat (not-so fun fact: this is not the original design-it was changed after 9/11)
Super Bowl XXII was played at The Rose Bowl.
Jacksonville hosted Super Bowl XXXIX. Famous for the 7 bridges.
The San Diego one is cool too. Who doesn't love lighthouses?
It's just a lame change that corporate ass holes never seem to care about. I just read that quote from the league for the first time as I wrote this blog and it makes my blood boil. That answer is such league headquarters hogwash. If you're gonna use the Olympic analogy at least do 4 seconds of research and realize that every Olympics has a unique-to-those-Olympics logo. Just like the Super Bowl should have too! Sports are supposed to be fun and while it may seem like not a big deal to some, to me changes like this are bad for sports. Taking the fun out of the game. This is like the Yankees antiquated hair rule times 1000. Plus if you go to a Super Bowl and get some league gear to commemorate your time there wouldn't you want something with a little swag?
Fuck Roger Goodell and RIPIP Super Bowls being hosted in San Diego :/
I wanna start out this blog by saying I love Paramore. For real....I follow like 4 fan accounts on instagram.
After Laughter got me all the way in, but I had always liked their hits. It wasn't until last year where I truly dove right in. I love After Laughter. Hayley Williams voice mixed with a wide arrange of musical stylings (as we all know Paramore is a genre-neutral band) makes my ears tingle with glee. I listen to Paramore daily. They're one of my favorite acts in the game rn. Everybody (for the most part) likes them. It's like the Michael Scott line about pizza. Rich people like pizza, poor people like pizza, white people like pizza, black people... do black people like pizza? They do, and the same could be said for Paramore. There were two fucking big articles written about the very topic last month.
I saw a meme that said "just because I rolled up blasting paramore doesn't mean I won't shoot". To me and my dark danky memeness that was gold. No, you're racist for thinking that. I tried to find it but since I like 8490 IGs a day I could be scrolling for years trying to find it.
If you want to know my favorite deep track it's Proof. As if I wasn't already mad enough I didn't see them during the AL tour now this new breaks.
Misery Business is dead until further notice.
Ughhh. It was never my attention to get this butthurt, but here I am.
I'm not the only one.
I am wicked bummed to see them be the latest act to fall victim to the pussification of America and even more bummed that as of now I'll never hear it live :( Gonna have to wait way more than 8 long months to ever hear Misery Business live.
When I first saw the headline that Paramore was retiring Misery Business due to "controversial lyrics" I honest had to do a double take for a second. Like...What are they talking about? It's just possibly the most sing-a-long-able songs of its era (and I know every word to it). What am I missing? HOF emo/pop-punk/whatever label you wanna use from that time period song. I know the lyrics. What controversial lyrics are in Miz Biz?? I had to read the rest of the article to figure out what was so "controversial".
It turns "Once a whore you're nothing more, I'm sorry that'll never change." is what put Miz Biz into an early grave. Oh no, it's slut shaming! FOH. I'm so fucking sick of fill in the blank shaming. Maybe people need to shamed? I've said it a million times fat shaming isn't even a thing because it's just reality. Being fat is bad. I have to deal with the health risks of it, it's not okay to be fat. It's not "fat shaming".
It's just tough, because I love Hayley Williams and respect her wishes and since I'm in love with her I want her to be happy. I just think this is a little too PC and frankly fucking ridiculous. Also kind of overkill. I feel like they didn't have to kill it. It's like if you got a haircut and it was a half inch shorter than you like, so you just said fuck it and shaved your head to start fresh. Overkill, dude.
It's not even that bad "Once a whore you're nothing more, I'm sorry that'll never change."
I get I'm in a different place being a dude, but people (girls) throw that word all the time. Maybe that's her deeper point and exactly why she wants to get rid of it? but at the same time can we take a step back for a second. This isn't like Paramore has a song supporting rape. It's a high school girl talking shit. In the lexicon of offensive lyrics .. does this even scratch the surface? I wanna know the people who are so offended? Do they exist? It's a song by a high school aged girl about stealing a dude from another girl and making her feel bad. That is THE business of misery she's putting this girl who's got a body like an hourglass that's ticking like a clock though.....whore seems like the perfect word to use if you're asking me.
"Excuse me Hayley! My great uncle was killed in Vietnam by a time released booby trap so I'm a little sensitive to clock references."
Despite me saying all of that. I understand where she is coming from in saying these are lyrics she wrote as a teenager (it's crazy to think that Hayley still isn't 30 with how long Paramore has been famous for) don't reflect who she is now but also at the same time tough fucking shit. People grow over time and that's great. That doesn't change that your fans wanna hear your hits. Plain and simple. This isn't the "N-word song" by Paramore where I could understand wanting to scrap this from the set list.
It's fucking Miz Biz. It's Paramore's most famous song and what put them on the fucking map. It's why you made it. Who knows what happens without that exposure. I love Paramore but I'm 100% serious. I think about that all the time with bands who have a ground breaking debut. Like if CRUSHCRUSHCRUSH (which I love) is the lead single is Paramore still Paramore today? I don't wanna hear the sick of playing it argument either. Sure it's from 2007, but guess what? The Rolling Stones still play Satisfaction. With Paramore's rotating line up the whole "sick of playing it" excuse is B.S. 2 of the 5 band members from 2007 aren't even in the band anymore and Zac Farro left the band for like 7 years lol.
I just think bands owe it to their fans to play what they wanna hear and I don't think I'm going out on a limb when I say a lot of fans wanna hear Paramore's signature song when they are going to see them live. Ironically there's like 20 Paramore songs I like more, but it's still a fucking classic and a must play at live shows. It's why most people there in the audience probably became fans in the first place. When I saw Florence + the Machine I had literally one of the best nights of my life, but I couldn't help but be upset they didn't play "No Light, No Light" which I still think about to this day. And sure, you can't chose what stays and what fades away but I'd bet my paycheck that the majority of Paramore fans don't want Misery Business to fade away.
I just think she could've stopped singing that lyric (which she's already done) instead of murdering an emo classic. Taylor Swift changed the line about telling her friends that her ex was gay to turn them off from dating him from the 2006 classic Pictures To Burn because it wasn't with the times anymore. So what do ya say, Hayley? Do what's right and bring back Biz Miz before fans RIOT*.
*lol that was sooooooo corny. I'm sorry.
RIP MIz Biz. At least their cover band is staying true.
Song: Misery Business
more coming shortly regarding this classic!
Like three weeks ago I lost my wallet, or should I say couldn't see it right in front of my fucking face in my bedroom. It was Resting on my bookcase (one of the 5 or so spots I usually keep it) with a jacket over it. How it took me 3 days to find it...I'll never know.
So during these few days where I had no wallet, I also had no money other than Venmo to barter with people to buy me stuff. I felt like I was on the triangle trade. Come on bro buy me dinner, I'll venmo right now. It was not an ideal time to be ole dozo, but then again when is it ever?
One of the days I didn't have a wallet my co worker who I was riding with that week asked if I wanted to get lunch and I told him - I was all good because I didn't have my wallet--get whatever you want, I'm gonna eat after work.
He was like nah, it's all good I really want pizza and not gonna eat the whole thing. It's on me.
What a guy. I'll give him that. Solid dude. He could obviously tell by looking at me that I am a pizza man. Just a savage move (IMO and in the eyes of most sane people as well) by his part was about to take place.
So we get to this place called 401 Pizza in Providence. It's in the ghetto by my work but actually a nice looking place. I had to go to bathroom. So I told him I was gonna run to the men's room. I made the fatal mistake of assuming he'd wait til I'm back to order. I don't think I'm thinking too outside of the box here.
Now I understand that since he is paying for the pizza he has the right to get whatever he wants. He doesn't have to include me, and I never asked him to. But anyways---in the 13 seconds it takes me to pee and not wash my hands because I never touched my wein so why waste water? He proceeded to order an olive and cheese pizza. One of, if not the worst possible one topping pizzas known to man. Not only are olives disgusting, but they also are a 3rd lead at best. Nobody is casting Olives to play the leading lady in Oscar winner. Olives don't put asses in the seats. Olives get to be Steve Buschemi in the Adam Sandler movies at best. Only good to a small percentage of people. If you're going to go one topping I think like 3/4 of people are going pepperoni. Then sausage? Personally I wouldn't hate just pineapple but I would never in a million years split a just pineapple pizza with a person who had no say in the outcome because despite my love and admiration for pineapple on pizza (it's delicious, you child) I know it's not copacetic with everybody.
That is my biggest complaint here. Don't say you'll split a pizza with someone and then get just fucking olive. He's not a vegetarian, either. I know I'm a picky ass eater but who in their right mind is ever craving a just olive pizza? Does this guy live in a society? When I told him I didn't like olives he was shocked. Like I was the crazy one. He said "that's crazy, everybody likes olives" which all things considered may be the hottest take of 2018. Olives know their place. They're an indie band who's never gonna make it, but they have a solid crowd who supports them just enough for them to survive. Olives are niche. Olives are like I said a supporter. I feel like you have like another veggy with olives as an accent or like sausage and olives. I was in the pizza game half a decade and didn't see a ton of just olives pass by.
Offering to split a pizza with me, then only find out it's an olive pizza is a lot like offering to help me move and showing up on your motorcycle. Yeah it's a nice gesture in theory, but you're really not doing anything for me.
Idk, maybe I'm wrong, but I really don't think I am. It is an absolute savage move to order a just olive pizza because "everybody loves olives". Don't offer to split a pie and show up with olives.
Then the whole time he kept pressuring me into eating it. I was like nah man I'm all set, I really don't like olives, I wanted to say a lot more than that but didn't wanna be an ass hole to a guy trying to get me lunch, but I mean how many times do I need to say it olives and fucking gross and INSANE topping to just assume a basically stranger would wanna split. I've you're doing AP Top 25 rankings of solo toppings not only is olives not on the top 25 but it didn't even also receive votes. Yeah I picked the olives off of one slice and then just ate the dough and sauce with no cheese on two more slices because I could still taste olive residue on the first de-olived slice. But the dude was basically begging me to eat his pizza. I had to and I was hungry. We even left one slice there on the tin when we left---something unheard of in my pizza philosophy.
I'm so shook up about this I'm writing this blog three weeks later. It's been in my tickler file I just haven't had a chance to break it out, but now that I have my own place and more me time I'm hoping to write more. Bored on a Saturday afternoon? Yeah let's bang a couple out. I wanna give podcasting another try too and I think my asbestos basement is just the place to have a studio, Just don't let future guests know that. Olives are still fucking trash though please do not think I forgot that in this little ending blurb. This concludes my blog.
âI think the fact that I'm not that familiar with his musical catalog and am still shook up about his passing says a lot about Mac Miller.
The Pittsburgh native rapper who broke onto the scene with his mixtape K.I.D.S. in 2010 was just 26 years old.
I feel like the rap game really passed me by in like 2012-13ish but can remember my early college years in dorm rooms and at parties with Mac Miller playing in the background. When I think of Mac Miller it's "Senior Skip Day" and "Donald Trump". I really don't know too much about him. Like I found out about the Ariana Grande shit yesterday too. I'm out of the loop af with pop popular. But I knew he just had a new album come out and I saw on youtube he was on the NPR tiny desk. I knew people who wanted to see him in Boston this fall. It looked like he was about to blow up again. He was ready to go out and do what he loved-peform. It's fucked.
Reports said he spent the night before he died watching the NFL opener with friends. It's just so sad man I know people are gonna be like well don't do whatever drug killed him and partly I agree, but it's also not that easy. Everybody has their issues, some just can handle it better and without all the facts out yet I feel like it's not right to speculate. There's gonna be a lot more well written, well informed pieces paying their respect to Mac and I'll be the first to admit that. But even with only having a brief glimpse of what he brought to the music world I'm still sad to see a guy so young with so much life left, go so soon and needlessly.
What has me fucked up is how he was only 26 years old. I'm 26. I can remember being a freshmen in college hearing him for the first time. It doesn't seem that long ago and now he's gone.
There's unfortunately many too soon deaths with people in the public eye, but from the outcry how the last 24 hours from such a wide array of people shows that Mac Miller was loved by a lot of people.
RIP Malcolm James McCormick.
