Today, Pope Benedict XVI announced that he will be resigning his reign as the leader of the Catholic world as of February 28th.
Why is this huge? Well beyond the fact that he is the Pope and leader of one of the largest religious groups known to man, he is the first Pope to resign in six centuries. Breaking tradition is frowned upon in Catholicism; let’s see how they recover.

"Locked Out of Heaven" - Bruno Mars
Bruno sounds like he reincarnated The Police with this one. Dope song.
Making a dollar off a life. Sounds deplorable right? Sounds like something far-fetched. Sounds like something out of a tasteless, low budget movie that leaves you feeling bad about your decision to watch it and furthermore the decisions made in the script. But this is life. This is our reality.
The New York Post ran a picture of a man seconds away from sure death and posted it on their front page for the public to see and talk about. If it bleeds, it leads the saying goes. What makes this story unique from many others is that at the time the picture was taken, there were spectators huddled around the platform, watching unmoved, while a poor, helpless man holding on to the last seconds of life screamed for help with none offered. Did I mention there were 18 witnesses? Or that there was about 60 seconds between the man falling, the people watching and the now dead man actually getting hit by the train? “Crushed like a rag-doll ” How about the idea of a man taking photos of the dilemma instead of lending a helping hand? Does that make this story appalling yet?
"What They Do" - The Roots
Taking it back Sunday.
This specific Roots song is mad important to me because it introduced me to them. A couple of albums and numerous hits later, they are my favorite rap group out. Word to Clay Holbert for the introduction back in ‘96. Game changer.
