There a lot of big trades and game-changing acquisitions that can alter a season, and some that just fly by with two-second recognition, like pigeons. OBJ is both of these. He is a big presence on Instagram, when he's having a tantrum on the sidelines, or making some insane catch. Don't get me wrong, I like Odell as much as the next person. His presence is unavoidable, and his effect on the game is unmatched, but he, and AB (Antonio Brown for you casual watchers) have become the cornerstone for the Diva Wide Receiver in the League, and it's shown to not win Championships.
Personally, I'm a fan of Melo. His days in New York were one of the many highlights of my love for basketball when growing up. The way he had the confidence to dribble up the court with no fear and hit the go-ahead or game-winning jumper right in a defender's grill. His 62 at the garden which was capped with a half-court heave at the end of the first half. Even his highlights in Denver are something to be awed.
I started listening to Logic around 2016 which just so happened to be the last year of my education. Found through the predictable post-exam social media scrolling, I found myself looking up the most impactful rap songs of the 2010 era.
I grew up with the 90s indie and pop-rock bands through my old man. He introduced me to the Stone Roses, Charlatans, Manic Street Preachers, andOasis. You name 'em, I've listened to them at some point. It wasn't until high school that I started to develop my own style and genre appreciation. The first one I remember of it was through watching a Green Day music video in 2004, asking Dad who this was and playing it on repeat for around the next month or so. This then developed into metal, prog rock, post-hardcore, punk, and hardcore. Never really delved into the origins of metal and where it actually comes from, as the only origin to ever cross the mind was Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, DIO, y'know. So seeing how it has changed from the small metal clubs of then, to the stadium tours and meet and greets of now is a world apart. But the age of the Electronicore is now, people, and we would be stubborn and defiant to ignore it.
