Thanks for reading.

Let us know what you think of our picks (remember these were made before the season even began!) in the comments.

The Best Of Chwomp: October Edition

Since Chwomp has been steadily rising in popularity of the past few months, I figured why not do a monthly ‘Best of’ feature? There have been a ton of quality posts this entire month, and I will do my best to put them in this piece but being scatterbrained I may miss a few! Enjoy them for the first, second, third time!

(Thanks again for over 3000 views this month alone! You’re all the best!)

Here are several of our favorite pieces this month:

Relive when I went to a Taking Back Sunday concert in Columbus, Ohio!

The crowd, including myself and my friend, sang every song in unison with the band. Every chorus, every backing vocals, every lead vocals. Everything was sung by the crowd. It was truly a fantastic experience. Taking Back Sunday played popular songs ‘Cute Without the E (Cut from the Team)’, ‘Liar (It Takes One To Know One)’ and ‘Make Damn Sure‘ (last song of the night), but also played fan favorite songs ‘My Blue Heaven’ (one of my favorites), ‘One-Eighty By Summer’, and ‘What’s It Feel Like To Be A Ghost?’ The band also sprinkled in ‘Catholic Knees’ (the only song off the album New Again to be played – to my knowledge) and ‘Call Me In The Morning’ – which is a fantastic song.

The Rambler Series:

We are a nation asleep. A nation that has been sedentary for decades just laying about waiting to be woken from our empty slumber. We have become a dreamless country and there seems to be no hope for our dreams to return.

Almost a week after the government has re-opened (this piece was featured 10/23), I felt it was the right time to throw my two cents into this whole ordeal. I am not going to talk about certain issues or agendas that Congress has but simply this: it is literally the Red Republicans versus the Blue Democrats. George Washington warned us in his farewell address that a rise in political parties would be detrimental to our government and society. Well, I think, wherever good old Georgie is, that he is laughing his ass off and saying, “I told you so.”

Here is an archive of all the daily music news!

Band of The Week Features:

All right, so technically Ylvis isn’t a band in the traditional sense, but a group rather – very similar to Lonely Island – that makes music. In fact, many [new] fans consider them the Norwegian Lonely Island. That’s pretty good company for Ylvis to be in as a comedic music group, but I’m going to elaborate more on Ylvis than just Ylvis being the Norwegian Lonely Island.

The band formed in 2005 and had already played their first show by March 4th of the same year. Near the end of 2005/beginning of 2006, the band signed to Fallout Records. The Fratellis were on their way. Their first EP was released in April of 2006 simply dubbed The Fratellis EP. Songs on the EP include ‘Stacie Anne’ and most notably ‘Henrietta’ (their first single).

Before Jukebox The Ghost were Jukebox The Ghost, they were Sunday Mail (2003) – a band formed by the trio while attending George Washington University in Washington, D.C. Within two years of creating Sunday Mail, the band decided to go on hiatus. During this hiatus, each member grew as a musician and individual, and began working on their own material. They wanted to regroup and collaborate on music together again, but with a new name for the band; thus the renaming to Jukebox The Ghost.

Do not confuse the band Polar Bear Club with the Polar Bear Club of Coney Island. I was utterly befuddled when I tried to find biographical information on the band and it led me to a site dedicated to ‘the oldest winter bathing organization in the United States.’ That’s awesome, Polar Bear Club of Coney Island, but I’m much more interested in the band.

The group now known as ‘OutKast’ was formed in 1992 in Atlanta, Georgia by André Benjamin (André 3000) and Antwan Patton (Big Boi). The original name of the hip-hop group was Two Shades Deep, but quickly became named as OutKast. The group is known as a hip-hop duo, but the pair use many different genres in their music, including:  blues, electronic, funk, jazz rock, spoken word poetry, and soul. Not quite a hip-hop duo at all, but that’s what makes OutKast great – the inability to pin them down onto one genre.

NFL Predictions:

Fun Feature: Pokémon of the Week!

Meowth is a small, feline Pokémon with cream-colored fur that turns brown at the tips of its hind paws and tail. Its ovoid head features four prominent whiskers, wide eyes with slit pupils, and a gold oval coin embedded in its forehead. Its ears are black with brown interiors, and are flanked with an additional pair of long whiskers. Meowth is a quadruped with the ability to walk on its hind legs; while the games always depict Meowth on two legs, the anime states that Meowth normally walks on all fours. It can freely manipulate its claws, retracting them when it wants to move silently. The tip of its tail curls tightly.

According to the scientific logs found in the Pokémon Mansion of Cinnabar Island, Mewtwo was born of a pregnant Mew, found deep in the jungles of Guyana, whose embryo had been tampered with to alter its DNA. It was held and studied in the mansion where the scientists, including Blaine and Mr. Fuji, performed horrific gene-splicing experiments that made it vicious and extremely powerful. It eventually broke free of the Mansion, destroying it in the process, and fled. It can be encountered in Cerulean Cave, accessible only after a Trainer has proven his or her skill at the Indigo Plateau.

Quick Look At NFL Week 8 Predictions

Here is my master list of predictions on the 2013 NFL Seasonhere is Andrew’s master list.

Since you likely don’t want to sift through the master list of predictions, I have posted them below! Let us know what you think of them, but remember that these predictions were made before the season began. Andrew and my prediction records aren’t the prettiest (well mine aren’t especially pretty), but we’re just under the ‘experts’ predicting games every week at ESPN. Andrew is actually tied with the ESPN Fan Pick’em, and has a better record than two of these ‘experts.’ Bravo.
