Truth be told, I haven't downloaded this tape yet but it deserves hard-drive space based on the cover alone. Soulja (who I've generally enjoyed his entire career) has always voiced his love of anime (including sketching his own characters) and video games, and this loveably goofy cover marries the two hilariously. Props to Beezy for being true to himself and not shying away from things normally considered nerdy. I can't stop grinning when I see it. I'll download it this weekend, and if it's any good I'll let you all know.

One of the world's most diverse and intriguing foods, the oyster is heavily influenced in its development and flavor by where it is grown. As the location of a vineyard can change the taste and texture of a grape -- a concept known as terroir -- oyster flavor is driven by merroir, the content and characteristics of the sea in which it grows. Experimenting with different types of oysters is delicious, fun and enlightening -- especially when you do some research before diving into that dozen.

I hope those who know Joan Rivers only from her work the last couple of decades on shows like “Fashion Police” will take the time to read some of the appreciations that talk about who she used to be. Rivers, who died Thursday at age 81 after being on life support since Aug. 28, was a fearless, cutting-edge and transgressive comedian straight from Greenwich Village in the 1950s and '60s, who made it possible for the likes of Amy Schumer and...

Editorial from The Aegis | January 22, 2013
For someone who didn't much consider himself a writer, Hayward Putnam certainly had a long career in the field. Roughly 40 years ago, he and Joseph Zimmer Jr. approached The Aegis about the paper's coverage of outdoors issues. Shortly thereafter, they became responsible for the newspaper's outdoors coverage, mainly hunting and fishing. Mr. Zimmer would do the writing and Mr. Putnam, a graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art, would put together a drawing to go with the text.

When a female "Officer Friendly" gets socked in the stomach by an 8-year-old boy, as happened last month in a widely reported occurrence at a West Baltimore elementary school, you begin to get the idea that police aren't admired and respected as much as they used to be.Closer public and media scrutiny of incidents of police corruption, incompetence and brutality partly account for this shift in attitude. Certainly the video tape of the March 1991 beating of Rodney King by Los Angeles officers did little to help the image of police.

Alaska, the polar bear who recently died at the Maryland Zoo, is a touching example of how animals can recover from years of deprived living conditions in circuses if given the opportunity (Polar bear euthanized at Maryland zoo," Jan. 16). People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals obtained videotape showing the Suarez Brothers Circus transporting Alaska and six other polar bears in small cages and making them perform in hot, humid regions of Mexico and the Caribbean. The overheated polar bears were panting constantly while being hit and whipped in order to force them to perform ridiculous, degrading tricks.

ON THE STREET where I live, the leaves are falling red and gold. I have never in my life looked at them with such tenderness. On the radio, the lyrics of familiar songs now offer an embrace like old friends. In the morning drive down the Jones Falls Expressway, I glance at the cars near mine and sense something unanticipated: strangers who share my exact vulnerability. In the office where I work, the talk is all about anthrax. But somebody circulated a group photo of the cast of The Sopranos, with a caption reading, "Just tell us where bin-Laden is, and fuhgedabout it."

Robin Williams was one of the most original, daring and troubled comedians to ever work in television. When he first burst on the screen, you held your breath as you watched him dance out there on a manic tightrope of improvisation. But after a while, you stopped wondering how he did it and learned to just enjoy the high of seeing him soar. The 63-year-old comedian and actor was found dead Monday at his home in Tiburon, Calif., north of San Francisco. The cause of death is suspected to be suicide by asphyxiation, according to the Marin County coroner's office.

The Baltimore Orioles just completed the last leg of their road trip, having played three games against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field ( "Kevin Gausman shuts down Rays, Nelson Cruz homers in Orioles' 2-0 victory," June 18). Both Baltimore TV and radio had nothing positive to say about Tropicana Field, the Rays' home turf in Tampa/St. Petersburg. Radio broadcaster and former Os pitcher Ben McDonald even called it "gloomy. " Can you imagine anyone ever calling Oriole Park gloomy?

Salisbury's bid to capture its 11th national championship did not unfold as planned as the team dropped a 12-9 decision to Tufts in the Division III tournament final on May 25 at M&T Bank Stadium. It was only the fifth time in 15 title-game appearances that the Sea Gulls failed to bring home the crown, but the result did not diminish coach Jim Berkman's positive assessment of this year's squad, which went 21-2 overall and 6-1 in the Capital Athletic Conference. “I really enjoyed this team this year,” he said.

Stevenson's mission to become only the fifth program to bring home back-to-back NCAA Division III titles came to an abrupt end with a 12-11 loss to Washington College in the tournament quarterfinals. The setback reminded coach Paul Cantabene of the difficulty of staying ahead of the pack and reaffirmed his respect for Hobart, Salisbury, Middlebury and Nazareth for their ability to string together at least a pair of national championships. “Hobart won 12 in a row [from 1980 to 1991]

An open letter to Douglas Gansler, attorney general of Maryland and candidate for governor Dear Mr. Gansler: As another school year winds down and I complete my 21 s t year in the Maryland Public School System, I am pondering where I should cast my vote in the upcoming gubernatorial election. It is a difficult choice. I do not need my union to tell me for whom I should vote. I can choose on my own. After your recent ad campaign, I can tell you who will not have my vote: you. I watched the ad on television and laughed at it, even as I shook my head and rolled my eyes.

Cinco de Mayo is upon us, Baltimore. And while the time-honored tradition of raising a "Mexican" beer or other frosty beverage in honor of the Mexican army's triumph over the French in 1862 at the Battle of Puebla (but you knew that, right?) may seem, ahem, so very college, there's no shame in participating in that game when it comes to fully owning it and indulging in a comically oversized margarita. There is no other place in this city that you, intrepid reveler, should be enjoying such a thing as the crowned King of Comically Oversized Margaritas at Nacho Mama's of Canton Square.
