Mike Myers’ Sunday News and Views

mikemeyersaustinpowers

Some might know May 25th as National Tap Dance Day, International Jazz Day, or even National Missing Children’s Day, but those in the know recognize the true significance of this date. May 25th is of course known as the day which saw comedian/actor, Mike Myers, come into existence. Named Michael John Myers, the Canadian born comedian has accomplished just about everything a comic could hope for in the entertainment industry. Former member of Saturday Night Live? Check. Star in multiple movie series like Austin Powers, Wayne’s World, and Shrek? Check. Lead vocalist of a band named Ming Tea acting as one of your movie characters? Check. Owning three dogs named Gilmour, Borchevsky, and 99 after famous Toronto Maple Leaf players? Check. His life achievements don’t stop in the entertainment or dog naming industries either as he’s married and has a single child named Spike. So here’s to you Mike Myers! We here at KSR wish you the happiest of 50th birthdays with a clip from Austin Powers that still makes the 13 year old in me laugh to this day.

On to the news of possibly the slowest news day in Kentucky Sports history.

The big news of the day was the commitment of three star Offensive Guard, Jarrett LaRubbio. The 6’5”, 280 pound Liberty Township, Ohio native was the the 26th best prospect in Ohio and the 16th rated Offensive Guard prospect in the nation according to Rivals. He held offers from Nebraska, North Carolina, Arizona State, Wisconsin, and Louisville among others. The commitment boosts Kentucky’s already record class ranking to 16th in the country. This is good for 7th in the SEC, just behind Hugh Freeze’s Ole Miss Rebels. The video below shows some of LaRubbio’s finest work.

 

-Mark Stoops was certainly excited about the news.

 

-In the other major news of the day, Kentucky Softball traveled to Tempe, Arizona to take on the Arizona State Sun Devils in Super Regional action. The result of the game is still in question at the time of this publishing due to the first pitch being set for 10 p.m. But as it currently stands, the Wildcats and Sun Devils are scoreless thru one inning. Sunday’s game two is set to begin at 5 p.m. and will be broadcast on ESPN, and if needed, Monday’s game three is set to begin at 8 p.m. on ESPN2. While the weekend’s result is unknown, we here at KSR wish Coach Rachel Lawson’s Hittin’ Kittens luck in Tempe.

 

-Three of Mark Stoops’ current players are showcasing their character off the field this week. Jonathan George, Kevin Mitchell, and Avery Williamson are representing the Kentucky football team in Ethiopia on a week-long service mission. Kevin Mitchell had this to say about his experience. “I kind of knew what I was getting into, but it’s a different world when you actually get here. Nobody can really describe how it really is. Once you see it with your own eyes, it’s really unbelievable.” For the full story, follow this link to UK Athletics’ Cat Scratches Blog.

-John Calipari took to Twitter this afternoon and asked Big Blue Nation to pray for Patrick Patterson’s grandfather who had open heart surgery yesterday. Be sure to send the Patterson family your well wishes in any way possible.

 

-Finally (and randomly), Dubstep is absolutely awful. As a musical genre it has absolutely no redeeming qualities unless you’re on Molly/Ecstasy (which many of its listeners are). Unlike other musical genres which require actual talent to produce, Dubstep requires that you know how to combine a bass filled beat with ironic movie quotes from the 80’s on your Macbook Pro. In other words, it’s this generation’s techno. If a lawnmower and a tornado siren had a horribly mutilated child with a bass fetish, it still wouldn’t be as awful as Dubstep. That being said, I finally found a Dubstep video I enjoyed. I have no idea what the song is called, nor do I care, but the guy singing along with a technologically distorted face makes it one of the funnier things I’ve seen on the internet. Here’s to you Dubstep Face Guy, thanks for making a Dubstep song hilarious/watchable.

    LaRubbio is from Liberty Township, not Lake.

    Mike Myers still owes me $8 for that waste of time named Shrek 3.

    Two very over dramatic reactions as it was not that bad of a day for our softball team and football team getting big news, and dub step is not always a bad sound.

    Man if you read the first line and use National Missing Childrens Day in that type of text, it seems to me that it might be hurtful to someone that actually has a missing child. Poor taste of an intro in my opinion and I dont hate just to hate. You can do better Johnny.

    4. Or if you were a failed tap dancer and jazz singer.

    Firstly, dubstep is great. You may not like the sound, but dubstep has artistic merit. Secondly, it’s “ecstasy” not “extacy.”

    6. Dubstep has almost as much artistic merit as the kernels of corn in my crap.

    If you had half a clue what goes into the production of an Electronic/Dubstep song, you’d keep your mouth shut. MUCH more difficult to produce and master than a generic country or pop song. Keep your musical critiques to yourself, bud. No one cares what you like or dislike. Focus on your sports journalism. It needs plenty of work.

    Lots of good and bad dubstep out there. check out dotexe sometime for the good. Particularly his remix of Meg & Dia’s “Monster”.

    “Make It Bum Dem” by Skrillex and Damian Marley is technically Dubstep. I have yet to find anyone who dislikes that song.

    You’re not in my mind
    You can’t get the concept
    You’re not on my level
    You might need a dubstep

    Thanks Jonathan, for reminding me how far the internet has progressed and contributed to the advancement of civilization. I’m not blaming you for dubstep, but that that video actually made me appreciate “Hampster Dance” and that’s saying something, just not sure what. If there is someone out there not aware of how hamsters dance, here’s a YouTube link to the original Geocities classic. Please comment on which you would prefer to be stuck on a tiny island in the Pacific with for a year or so.

    #9. well said. That tangent was completely juvenile and unprofessional. No one cares what think. Move along and worry about crafting your own “skill“ and maybe one day you could be as successful as one of these “talentless“ dubstep artists.

    To paraphrase the other posters. “We are trolls, we no like you words. Stop giving us free entertainment and news.”

    I hope the rumor that the Harrison twins may take a big shoe deal and go to Europe for a year are not true.

    #16; you mean the rumor you just created? It’s Sunday. Perhaps a better use of your time would involve praying or meditating or trying to help someone less fortunate than yourself.

    #9 Just because it something takes a long time to make doesn’t mean it isn’t sheet. It spent awhile in the bathroom this morning and guess what? It still sounded and looked like sheet. Dubstep = Sheet.

    Dubstep is awful. I don’t care if it does or doesn’t take a lot of effort to produce. Sometimes I sit on the John for 2 mins sometimes its 15 the end result is still sh*t.

    And no one cares about your constipation issues fellas. But then again, I’m sure that’s the biggest and best thing you’ve ever created in your life.

    LaRubbio certainly has no trouble putting a D Lineman half his size on his ass. How that will translate to SEC linemen is yet to be seen

    No one gets on KSR to read some “sports-journalist’s” opinon of music. You should probably stick to attempting to become a writer instead of criticizing MUSIC on a SPORTS site. This site was so much better a few years ago when it was just Matt, Drew, Beisner, and even BTI. I’m a student and I can still say these student writers are ruining the site.

    “Molly” is ecstasy, not sure why you tried to separate the two.

    Actually “Molly” is pure MDMA. Ecstasy is the pill form, which can contain other stuff.
