First, some big news—The Replay now has an official Spotify playlist. Thanks to DJ Thea’s great suggestion, you can now find all of our recommended songs in one convenient place. Check it out!
Order More by G-Eazy and Starrah (If G-Eazy and Chance the Rapper were on every song these days that would be fine with us)
Hands to Myself by Selena Gomez (Apologies for not sending this around earlier. Total banger.)
No Pressure by Classified and Snoop Dogg (What ever happened to Snoop Lion? Also, classic Peggy Clarke text circa 2011, “as you know, I absolutely love Snoop Dogg.”)
Best Tweet of the week: “Is there a harder fictional death to swallow than Dobby dying in deathly hallows part 1? I’m still not over it.” – NBA player Frank Kaminsky. Kaminsky then went on a rant about death in movies and ranked the 6 saddest deaths, including Sam from I am Legend and G-Baby from Hardball. The whole thing is great.
Video of the week: Taurean Prince of Baylor explaining how Yale got more rebounds than them is everything.
Pic of the week: Pop a Molly, he’s sweatin! UofA coach Sean Miller sweat through TWO SHIRTS last night.
Hamilton went to the White House! You can see the President’s speech and the cast perform some of the songshere. (starts ~45min)
Shia LeBeouf and Mia Goth are engaged! I don’t know about you, but when I read this headline we immediately had two questions: 1) Who is Mia Goth? 2) How is Shia Lebouf getting married and we can’t even find someone we’d like to go on a second date with? SMDH. Also, Ciara and Russell Wilson are also engaged! They are also the most beautiful couple in the history of humans. Hopefully they will give up this whole abstinence thing now and procreate. The world NEEDS this.
You always hear about how much Kanye West hates the paparazzi. Well, you know what they say about keeping your enemies closer. Check out Kanye getting a ride with the ‘razzi this week.
President Obama announced his nominee for the Supreme Court, Merrick Garland. Read up about him here and let us know if you have any burning questions about him or the process. We might get our resident SCOTUS expert (shout out Anjali) on the podcast next week to answer them!
Former Harvard Basketball player and Secretary of Education (listed in order of importance), Arne Duncan, has announced his next move—joining Laurene Powell Jobs’ Emerson Collective to focus on disconnected youth in Chicago. Are we the only two people who care deeply about this announcement?
Rep Pete Sessions (R-TX) is pushing to get magic recognized as a national treasure. We love Harry Potter as much as the next guy, Pete, but don’t you think we have bigger fish to fry?
As the GOP leadership meets to figure out what to do about Trump (Cruz, Ryan, an Independent?!), Politico outlines how Trump can beat Hillary.
What’s the deal with all the madness in March? Why care about sports at all? If you’re asking these questions, Friend of the Replay, Christine Emba has the answers for you over at The Washington Post.
Not all NCAA coaches are created equal. Particularly when it comes to their own playing ability. Check out ESPN’s ranking of coaches as players.
Have you seen the latest highlight tape from Lebron’s sons? Let’s just say, the kids can ball. Interestingly, they choose to sport #0 (Westbrook) and #30 (Curry) instead of their dad’s #6/#23. The King’s reaction? “I love that they carve their own path.”
Duke’s Grayson Allen is Ted Cruz. Ted Cruz is the Zodiac Killer. Grayson Allen is the Zodiac Killer.
Sea World announced that the whales currently in their care will be the last. 20+ years later it looks like someone finally listened to the wisdom of Free Willy. Also, RIP Michael Jackson. Thank you for so much, particularly thismoment.
Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop smoothie costs $200 to make. Is there a national petition to stop Gwyneth Paltrow? If so, count us in.
The First Lady teamed up with some divas and Zendaya to make a song celebrating women. We haven’t listened yet, but the President of the Georgia Replay Fan Club said “a Lady Marmalade (or even a Stand Up 2 Cancer), it is not.”
