Let’s Talk About Apple’s New Toy

macbookproYesterday, Apple  announced their new line of MacBook Pros. They feature thinner frames, faster processors, better battery life, less (zero) usb ports and a new product Apple calls the Touch Bar.

Mac Miller – “Youforia”

Awesome video, awesome song, talented guy. Can’t deny that Mac Miller makes some great music. Before I started my sick love obsession with Norah Jones his song, “Missed Calls”, was top played on my iTunes by far! Looks like his concerts would be a blast to attend.

Chase Utley Responding to Mac from “Always Sunny” Is Kind Of The Coolest Thing Ever

It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia kicks off season 9 tonight, and whether this has anything to do with it isn’t clear, but what is clear is that it’s awesome. I guess Chase Utley was impressed by Mac’s speed after all. Oh what a glorious game of catch it will be.
