Welcome to Icy Schemes Media. I am the founder and CEO of both our Twitter account and our WordPress-powered website, Admin Tam. I’ll go out on a limb and suggest that you probably don’t care to read what some inexperienced young’uns from Kentucky have to say about the world, and I don’t blame you. First of all, if you think Kentucky is trash, I get it: there’s the incest thing, zero professional sports teams, and highly-significant toothless and obesity rates, with a p-value of 0.00 (probably). Hell, our largest market is Louisville, whose two largest players are (or were) Pitino and Papa Johnno, both of whom are now unemployed. But forget about Kentucky. Our media service is comprised of a small group of guys who like to argue sports, politics and the entertainment industry. The members of Icy Schemes have grown up together and, to be honest, our name is a reference to a Smirnoff Ice-filled night from last year. Nonetheless, we have branded ourselves upon our individuality, which seems the most advantageous vehicle with which we can gain an initial following (and there’s your transparency). Truly, Icy Schemes will always be about its consumers–nothing is more important to us than transparency and accountability except for increasing viewership and becoming influential enough to create controversy. Our content is that of a liberal arts major at Centre College (called by many the “Harvard of the Bluegrass”), a young Appalachian animal enthusiast who studies business processes at the University of South Carolina, and a washed-up high school football player currently enrolled at THE Roll Tide University in Tuscaloosa. Also in our crew is a member of the band Young Culture (I get the vibe that he’s primarily here for self-promotion). But I digress.
With that out of the way, a frequent question we’ve been asked (by ourselves) is how to define “entertainment.” In my mind, entertainment is anything that entertains. You should thus be prepared to read about dank memes, film, music, politics, sports (and sports gambling), television, gaming, and probably some more areas that do not readily come to mind. Each of our contributors will have his individual area(s) of focus, and there is no singular vision among us. I am merely one of our several contributors, all of whose opinions I consider central to our service and its presentation to the world.
In addition to Founder-President-CEO, I have named myself Senior Sports Contributor and Co-Senior Film/Television Contributor. So, I’ve compiled a list of a few of my takes, arranged from coldest to hottest:
- Though George Bush probably didn’t do 9/11, there is evidence that he did.
- Tiger Woods will not win another major.
- Fuck the Steelers and the Seahawks equally.
- Lebron is a bitch.
- Disney ruined Star Wars.
- Jaime Lannister is not only the best (as defined by me) Lannister, he is the best character in Game of Thrones.
- Colin Kaepernick should not have a job in the NFL (somehow this is a take that is, at least, approaching warmth)
- Inglorious Basterds is a top-10 all-time movie.
- Kentucky Basketball is dying.
- Jimmy Garoppollo should be seriously considered for 2017 NFL MVP.
