In my life I love you more...

There are places I remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends
I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I've loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
there is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more
Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more
In my life I love you more

As you should already know, WVU is headed to the Sugar Bowl, one of the four bowls included in the BCS. I think the BCS did a perfect job this year, and the season-long playoff has established three quality games, plus one of the best on-paper national championship games of all time.

The BCS just keeps working, year in and year out. Don't believe me? Look back at the Ohio State/Miami game. Never would've happened under the old system. This year, USC would be playing Penn State in the Rose Bowl, while Texas played in another bowl, against another opponent, with the chance that both the Trojans and 'Horns would finish the season unbeaten. Now THAT'S a shitty scenario.

I know that everyone's dream scenario is a playoff, and I agree that it would be off-the-charts in terms of entertainment value, but what we have isn't all that bad.

*Just as a side note, I love the Oregon Ducks. Always have, always will. But they didn't get the shit end of the stick by not getting picked by the BCS. They were 10-1 to Ohio State and Notre Dame's 9-2, but the Ducks also played teams like I-AA Montana. Replace the Grizzlies with a legitimate IA threat, and then they can prove they belong with the Buckeyes and Irish. It was their choice, and it bit them in the ass.

*I'm in my final days at Albert Gallatin High School, and I will officially graduate this weekend with a Master's degree in Education. Seriously. It's been one helluva ride, and I will be looking back on my 13 semesters at WVU in the coming days.

Don't care? Well, then...damnit. That's it, just damnit. That's all I got.

Eminem: Curtain Call

Eminem's fifth album - and first Greatest Hits compilation - hits the shelves Tuesday, featuring three new tracks, as well as 13 other tracks that made Marshall Mathers one of the greatest emcees of all time.

The three new tracks - When I'm Gone, Fack and Shake That - are pretty solid tracks. Shake That features Nate Dogg, and is a classic Em club dance song, mixing in drinking, drugs and hot, naked girls dancing on poles. Fack is the weakest of the three tracks, with an annoying hook, but great verses in the mold of "Criminal" and "Kill You."

Of course, the highlight of the album is its closing track, "When I'm Gone." It's a classic "grown-up" Eminem song (think Toy Soldiers), where he acknowledges he has mistreated his ex-wife and not been an attentive father at times. If you allow yourself to get mixed up in songs, it can be an emotional track, especially if you pay attention to the verses. All in all, its one of his best songs to date.

I'm not certified to give music reviews. I just like the combination of songs on this CD, which also includes two versions of "Stan," one with Dido and a live version featuring Elton John.

Go buy it. Why? 'Cause I fucking said so.

The end of Slim Shady? You tell me.
