Oh Lorde!

I know I'm a little late to this party, but I'm usually so caught up on building dance floors that I sometimes let a few things fall under my radar.  I really don't know how I could have missed something as special as Lorde. This 17 year old from New Zealand is a very deep and fresh breath of air, and she is filling a (major) void in today's world of female pop stars.

Lorde just shuts it down, and makes me wonder how will Miley, Katy and Kesha even compete with something and someone so real? Even Gaga can't measure up to this girl's simple brilliance. Lorde isn't trying to sport all the crazy outfits, gimmicks, and hoopla that these other stars impose on us. She's just being herself, and that is more than enough.   I don't care how slow the song "Royals" is, I will be rockin' it in the clubs, if anything I should have been rockin' it when the single first dropped two months ago! For the first time (in a long time), we have an artist that is delivering the perfect marriage of accessible, sonic-beauty with strong, responsible, and intelligent-lyricism. Plus...there is something so familiar AND different about her sound. I love this girl!!

  2. After a decade in the NFL searching for the right pieces and the right team, Carson Palmer has found a home in Arizona. NFL Jerseys And the Cardinals want him to stay awhile.

    The team announced Friday that it signed Palmer to a three-year extension, which will keep him under contract through 2017. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported that the pact is worth $50 million with roughly $20 million guaranteed through 2015, according to a source who has seen the deal.

    It's a remarkable story for a quarterback nearly a decade removed from his playing for his only legitimate title-contending team -- the 2005 Cincinnati Bengals with Chad Johnson and T.J. Houshmandzadeh. Palmer tore his knee ligaments in the team's first Nike Air Max 2015 Shoes playoff game that season, sparking an NFL rule change and a wandering search for Palmer's mojo. Enter Bruce Arians.

    The Cardinals coach has an aggressive vertical style that complements Palmer's game, and the weapons to make him look better. Palmer is no longer a top-five quarterback like he once cheap sale jerseys was, but he still throws four to five passes each game that few quarterbacks could make. He's supported by NFL Jerseys Store a wildly talented supporting cast and a strong defense. Perhaps most importantly, he's learned to limit his mistakes.

    The contract extension indicates that Palmer will get more than just this season to win it all in Arizona, but we suspect very little is promised after 2015. Nike Roshe Run Palmer knows more than anyone this is a year-to-year league, and the Cardinals will likely build in contractual protection so they can easily move on from the 34-year-old if he nosedives new nike nfl jerseys or gets injured.

    The contract, however, does take the pressure off Arizona from finding a "quarterback of the future." They could still draft a quarterback to develop in the middle rounds next season if anyone strikes Arians' fancy, but they are comfortable with Palmer and backup wholesale jerseys Drew Stanton in the meantime. This Nike Air Max 90 Cardinals team has a chance to go deep in the playoffs, and Palmer must relish this final chance to rewrite his career.
