Jay-Z will curate and headline Made in America, a new two-day music festival that will bring nearly 30 musical acts to Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park from September 1st-2nd, according to the New York Times. The lineup will be formally announced tomorrow, and will feature “rock, hip-hop, R&B, Latin and dance” acts.
Tickets will go on sale May 23rd with a portion of the proceeds benefiting United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey.

What happens if my tee shot lands on a bird's back and he carries it out of bounds but then is attacked by a larger bird who grabs the ball and drops it in the hole? Is that still a hole in one? 'Cause that's how I'm gonna play it.
He's like you made an Ã¼ber troll by taking the worst parts of me (the utter disregard for other people's opinions), Phi (cluttering up threads with memes and adding nothing to a discussion) and Jess (an apparent belief that everyone else is the problem and/or arrogance without self awareness).
