Bro Tunes: Hoodie Allen Edition

Bros, I introduce to you, Hoodie Allen.  He's at the point in his career where he has a solid following in his region, but hasn't yet reached his full potential of being heard by much of the United States.  The first time I heard a few of his songs, including these first two, I honestly wasn't quite sure what I thought.  But as the shuffle on my recently added playlist kept playing Hoodie Allen, his songs have gotten burned deep in my head, and my friends that hear me play Hoodie.

For the first time, I'm going to add more than one song to a Bro Tunes post, just because I like this artist that much, and I can't decide which track is my favorite.  His music can be found for free on DatPiff, his YouTube channel, or directly on his website.  So here are the three songs, "You Are Not a Robot", "Dreams Up", and "Swimming With Sharks" (a remix of a "Shark in the Water", by VV Brown, a very catchy tune), enjoy.  Join the Hoodie Allen movement today.

College Humor - If I were a Bro...

Barstool U - One off the most disgusting things I've seen in a while. If you click on one link in this post, make it this one.  Hockey players are Bros, even if nobody watches the games.

Guyism - The title of the article pretty much sums it up. Useful information for Bros everywhere.

COED Magazine - New York Knick Landry Fields takes a shot at being a Modell's salesperson. A different approach than Danny Woodhead's, but still very funny.

Barstool NY - If you don't know who Brian Wilson is, you probably aren't an avid baseball follower. If you don't know who "The Machine" is, then you probably aren't an avid Brian Wilson follower. The Machine's identity has finally been revealed.

UPROXX - We've all been there, the Hangover at work. Here are a few tips to get you through the workday after a wild night.

FilmDrunk - Another X-Men, this time back to the beginning. Looks like it's going to be pretty badass.

Are You Kidding Me Bro?

Really Mark? It seems like the New York Jets just can't help staying in the news, whether Antonio Cromartie is having another nameless child, Rex Ryan is licking feet, or now, Mark Sanchez dating a 17 year old high-schooler. I previously posted a link to a story that referred to Sanchez's conundrum. Now that mass media outlets are finally doing some homework on the story, it is really developing rapidly.

Sanchez is a NFL quarterback in the largest media market in the world.  He has the looks, and his potential for anything he pursues is endless. We're talking about hundreds of millions of dollars being at stake for the Sanchise. His fate relies on whether the public's new image of him will be creep status, or Bro status.  This will determine whether the pretty boy will hold his endorsements, or fall to the level of the highly criticized Ben Roethlisberger. 

The 24 year old is with a 17 year old.  I understand, some Bros like their girls a little bit younger, but to think that Mark's best option right now is to be with this Junior in high school is just outrageous. I'm going to go out on a limb and assume that this is a bad photo of the wondergirl, Eliza Kruger. Deadspin was able to get some question and answer time with Kruger. She told Deadspin, "He would send me a text at 2 a.m. on a Wednesday asking if I was out that night, but I'd be, like, I have school tomorrow." In fact, Eliza went on to say that only hours after the Jets loss to the Steelers in the playoffs, Mark texted her requesting to hang out.

It safe to say that there is some sexing going on here.  Let the debate begin, will Mark Sanchez's image be tarnished as much as Ben Roethlisberger's?  Meanwhile Jets fans, welcome your newest, underage tight end.  Are you kidding me Bro?

Here are some pictures that the fresh meat took at Mark's apartment on her blackberry.  Bed is pretty messy... just saying.

Rotten Oranges

I nearly made this my first video blog post, but honestly I don't feel like going through all that shit right now.  It's late, I have to be awake at 7:30 AM, and I'm pissed off.  So a regular post it is, to spare myself the embarrassment, and to vent.

Tonight I went to the Georgetown-Syracuse basketball game.  Any fan of a sports team will at some point blame referees for the outcome of a game.  The referees were absolutely terrible tonight, calling probably about 10 offensive fouls - an unheard of amount.  This played a huge factor in the game, but not the biggest.  When you purchase a ticket to a sporting event, do you go so you can sit with your arms crossed?

The Carrier Dome was filled with a fairly thin crowd by Hoya versus Orangemen standards, having just over 26,000 people attend the game.  That itself is pretty embarrassing.  What makes it even worse is what seemed like every seating section around me (lower level, behind the basket) were all sitting down during the final 3 minutes of the game.  Of course Syracuse led the majority of the game, but started losing it around this time.  At this point, I was furious, and disgusted to be see this vital game slip away.  Finally, some ballsy Bro started screaming at all the so called "fans" sitting, unmotivated at the game.  For once the drunk guy standing up yelling profanities wasn't the asshole, everyone else was.

Maybe it would be different if SU wasn't so worried about money by giving those lower level seating priorities to students instead of wealthy, subdued "fans".  See Duke University for example, the Cameron Crazies, seated lower level on the side of the court, control the game.  Syracuse however, puts the student section on the end of the court directly behind the basket, not uncommon by any means.  But in terms of which end they're located, it doesn't even make sense.  The opposing teams shoots on the end opposite of the student section during the most important time in the game, the end.  So basically instead of giving the home Orange a bit of an advantage at the end of a game, Syracuse University completely negates that thought by giving the opposition the relief of shooting at an end full of quiet "fans"m and taking the student section out of the picture.

So if SU really wanted to help their basketball program, they should try thinking for a few minutes.  There is probably something I missed that would clearly point to the reason why the current seating scheme makes sense, I don't know.  I do know that the team's best fans are the students, regardless of revenue they generate fo SU, even though the students do pay tuition out the ass.  They bring intense support every game.  5 losses in the past 7 games after starting 18-0 should be unacceptable, there's only so much the players/coaches can do.  Hall of fame coach Jim Boeheim is on record for calling out the Syracuse fans many times.  It's time for SU to hop off the economic greed train and reward the biggest fans they have instead.

Alright, so this is certainly a different kind of Bro style topic.  Brought to you by Tom Brady, Muggs.  BroCo N' Lime got some of these as a Christmas gift, but stood by his slippers throughout all the shit I gave him.  Before I knew it, another roommate had some.  The concept of wearing "Uggs" just seemed weird.  It was all funny until I actually tried the moccasins on, and let me tell you, they're simply amazing.  The Muggs slippers are probably the most comfortable, plush thing I have ever worn on my foot.

The outers are made of either sheepskin, leather, or suede, depending on which color/style of the slippers you choose.  The inside is an extremely soft wool fleece.  Since I'm a cheaper bastard, chances are that I won't spring for the $120 moccasins, its pretty outrageous.  All I'm saying is that if you have a birthday coming up, or you have the money and need moccasins, whatever, check these kicks out. 

I'll be the first to admit that I was put off by the idea of wearing a shoe that has become so widely known as a feminine boot for the ladies, but I'll also be the first to admit now that I've tried them, buying a pair is likely.  I just need to overcome my cheapness first.

KiD CuDi to Cortland, But With Who?

UPDATE: Chip The Rippa will be performing with KiD CuDi at SUNY Cortland.
Finally, the tip lines have opened, and info is flowing in.  According to The BroCave's reliable intel here at SUNY Cortland, all signs are pointing towards KiD CuDi coming to Spring Fling.  None of The Fray bullshit like last year's depressing choice.  Chances are if a girl had a boyfriend, she dragged him to that concert. That and single ladies were the audience. 

KiD CuDi, he's huge, shit's been blowing up campus-wide, targeting more of the campus as a whole, not just Hoes, but Bros too.  There still hasn't been an "official" announcement, but from what I've heard from reliable sources who've leaked some information, it seems almost inevitable.  Cudder will be coming to Spring Fling, but with who? 

J. Cole? MGMT? David Guetta? B.o.B? Kanye or Cee Lo Green would make the most sense, since they both have a few songs together.  It would be sick as hell, but chances are Kanye isn't going to truck to a small university in Upstate New York, I'm not really sure about Cee Lo Green's situation.  But opening the concert with an echoing "FUCK YOU" would be pretty awesome.

Even if Cudi comes Solo Dolo, who gives a shit, it will be SICK.  Welcome to SUNY Cortland, you're more than welcome here anytime.  Who would you like to see perform with Kid CuDi for Spring Fling?

Check out KiD CuDi's new album Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager on here or iTunes.

Bro Tunes: Mike Posner Edition

It's my first post on The BroCave as the new music Bro, and I'm more than happy to make this my first song. Another catchy song on the 31 Minutes to Takeoff album by Mike Posner. This song flies well under the radar to "Cooler Than Me" and "Please Don't Go." But if you ask me, this is the best fuckin' one. Just another guy trying to hit the sac with a chick on the first date. Great beat, great lyrics, great flow. Enough said.

Bro of the Week: Aaron Rodgers

Not a real exciting Bro of the Week, I know.  Of course it's hard to live up to losing your two front teeth and not knowing how it happened.  But it was the Super Bowl, Aaron Rodgers is a Bro, and he kicked ass.  Against the number 1 ranked Pittsburgh Steeler defense whom only allowed 15 touchdowns all season, Rodgers threw for 304 yards, and 3 touchdowns.  Not only that, but he hasn't been involved in any sexual assault cases thus far in his career, a feat that is truly becoming hard to find in starting NFL quarterbacks.

Then again, I don't think his receivers are getting enough credit because of our society being so quarterback oriented.  Greg Jennings wouldn't have had a good game if it weren't for half of his receptions being touchdowns (2).  4 receptions is by no means a Greg Jennings game, but Jordy Nelson stepped up and made up for him.  Nelson caught 9 balls for 140 yards and a touchdown.  The only reason I'm actually writing about the recievers is so I could post the famous Greg Jennings, broken leg touchdown video.  "Fuck you Gumby!"

But back to the Bro, props to A-Rodg for a game and season well played despite people doubting him throughout the entire season.  It's about time more of those #4 jerseys start disappearing for Lambeau.  Lombardi trophy, Super Bowl MVP, Championship Belt, and now, Bro of the Week, Aaron Rodgers is going to Disney World.

Guyism - Whether you're watching the Super Bowl, or the Lingerie Bowl, here's some good eats to help celebrate.

FilmDrunk - I don't think the opening line of this post could've been better, "yep, that's the guy that bangs Katy Perry." Russell Brand was a cake lover.

COED Magazine - Decisions, decisions...

Screen Junkies - Bros Broin'.

UPROXX - Are you Sith or Jedi?

Deadspin - Epic snow sculpture. Bros bustin' on bros.
