Shutup and Let me go……

This version puts that silly band called the Ting Tings to shame……

Fight From Above just signed….Check them out and tell everyone about them so you can be the cool cat on the block who everyone worships for being a Music guru knowing how to pick good bands and have the foresight to see the next big song to headline on Rock Band Galactic Tour.
Or you can just sit down on your couch and keep playing La’s There She Goes….You make the decision!!!!

Whats playing on the C-POD?

I’m Courtland and I will hopefully be a regular here on Kaliphornya.com. I’m finishing up my degree at Cornell College in Iowa. I’m from Minnesota so naturally I am a HUGE Twins fan and…well…that’s about it. Our country is struggling through its toughest economic times since the Great Depression while Minnesota sports are a Great Depression. I play tennis at Cornell and have found that there is a very important piece that goes into my game that has nothing to do with “G” or what kind of racket I use. This would be my pre-game music. Before each weekend (we usually play clusters of matches on the weekends) I make a new play list on my iPod shuffle to get me going for the game. Whenever I watch NBA games and see such players at Lebron James, Steve Nash and Baron Davis walking into the arena with their gigantic headphones, I find myself wondering what they are listening to.

So I am here to give you some insight into what a men’s tennis player from Iowa will be listening to before matches this weekend. This, obviously, in no way represents what professional athletes listen to but I hope that through this you can find some good tunes to work out to or get pumped up to before a sporting event. Not all songs are rock or rap/hip-hop…you must find your true mood before!

Here are 10 (out of 103) songs that will be listened to on my shuffle:

  1. Our Truth – Lacuna Coil

  2. Ain’t I – Young LA feat. Young Dro & T.I.

  3. Still Dre – Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg

  4. Lolli Lolli (Pop That Body) – 36 Mafia

  5. The Anthem – Pitbull feat. Lil Jon

  6. Elevator – Flo Rida feat. Timbaland

  7. Roll – Flo Rida feat. Sean Kingston

  8. Real American – Rick Derringer

  9. The Champion In Me – 3 Doors Down

  10. Beware Of The Boys – Panjabi MC feat. Jay-Z

Tennis is a very different sport as compared to the likes of football and basketball. Both of those sports you can run 100 miles per hour and be very physical and jacked up. The difference is that tennis is a very mental game where fluid motions and a sound mind are key. So throughout the rest of this play list, one may find some classical music, r&b music and other types of moderately relaxing music. I’ve found that the best play lists for tennis are the ones that are eclectic in genres and don’t contain too much caffeine.

I plan on being a regular here on Kaliphornya so check back each week for my play list updates for the latest on my shuffle and for some new music to add to yours!

If you would like to get some more songs that are on this playlist, you can email us at: Kaliphonryablog@gmail.com and make sure to have “Playlist” as the title of the email.

Until next time-

Marbury a leprechaun killer!!!!

The self titled Starbury is free from NYC. He is set lose in the NBA just in time for the the Boston leprechauns to pick him up. All bean land fans are hoping that they truly can pull all of that luck out of the weed they have as their half court logo and not have mr selfish ruin their aging team.
I can see it now. Stabury is going to be taking time away from Rajon Rondo. Rajon will be pissed his PT is down and start getting pissed in the locker room, practice, and time outs. That team fusion KG and Jesus Shuttleworth brought to leprechaun land will be tested. Guys will be split. Marbrry is going to demand the lime light and not buy into the system. When it comes down to it, the guy who has the ball has all of the power. Do you truly think that after five games Marbury will pass the ball when its time to be a hero? I don’t think so. The C’s once they do land Marbury is like having a brain transplant that has Cancer. It will spread throught that locker room faster than the leprechaun bounces away with that pot of Gold.
Brining Starbury into the Boston de-compost pile will officially make the NBA finals this year be a match up between the Cavs and Lakeshow.
It is ever so apparent that Boston is one year older and one year slower. To counteract this they are going to bring in a selfish, hotshot hoopster that is not going to fit in the system. The beans are afraid of the depth of the lakeshow. This dumbest thing the C’s could have done last year was let PO-Z go.
I am predicting it now that they don’t make it past the Cavs and we will finally get to see Kobe face Bronbreezy in the NBA finals where it will be ever apparent that KB24 is the true MVP.
