Hey Bay Area, you’re looking great today.
We had a great week in news, and to save you all some time we went ahead and rounded up some of the biggest stories of the week, just for you. Here are the most buzzworthy stories from the last few days, from an NFL scandal involving a certain TMZ video, to an impromptu Bill Murray Bay Area visit, to the newest additions to the Apple family.
Not only did ‘Sons of Anarchy’ premiere its final season with murder! lies! intrigue!, it also gave us some great music. The premiere featured two covers. One was The Association’s ‘Never My Love’ and the other was Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, which, as I’m sure you’re aware, is not an easy track to do justice to. Check them out here and read our recap of the premiere in the link above.
We wish we could say that there was more context to this news, but there isn’t really. Bill Murray came to Oakland for some reason, took a cab, and somehow ended up driving it. Read his account of the story, in case you needed further iteration that Murray is pretty much the greatest human alive.
Not too long ago, Ray Rice was suspended two games (TWO GAMES) for knocking out his then-girlfriend in a hotel elevator. At the time, the NFL claimed that they hadn’t seen the full video of the altercation but apparently, as we found out this week, that was a blatant lie. Nevertheless, as soon as the full video was released, the Baltimore Ravens released Rice, and the NFL is looking like a dog who just got caught eating out of the garbage: dirty, gross and guilty. Meanwhile, the #WhenILeft hashtag emerged on Twitter, wherein domestic abuse survivors and victims tell their stories on Twitter.
Apple just rolled out their newest makes: two new larger versions of iPhones and an Watch. The upside? Their new phone screens are made from a shatter-resistant sapphire. The downside? Their battery life will probably be awful.
Sorry Grandma, but Nicki’s butt has created quite the stir. The pop star’s video for ‘Anaconda’ features a lot of boo-tay and lots of dancing. Some people love it, some hate it, but everyone has got an opinion.
