We got him!
  Most positive news for this franchise in a while. 

A new owner who's interest/knowledge in hockey admittedly begins and ends at "I liked the Rangers as a kid" has already done more than the one two punch of "the Saw guy" and a former player/cowboy.  The future is bright-ish.

THINGS [19 May 2010|04:08pm]
1. ONE AND DONE: PENS ARE GOLFIN'



A week after them being eliminated it's less hard to believe but still hard to take.  Especially because the Flyers who by all means shouldn't even be in the playoffs (their berth came down to a single shootout goal in the last game of the season, not their last game.. the last game) are dominating the team that claimed both the Pens and Caps.  Lots of criticism coming from overzealous fans that think it's a cakewalk to appear in the finals 2 years in a row and an Olympics.  A finals, cup, gold medal, Art Ross, and Rocket Richard aren't enough?  As much as a long offseason sucks now it will pay dividends next year.  Still interesting to see how the free agency will shake out.

2.  PEACE SELLS



Mark Megadeth as one of those bands I've been willfully ignorant of for a decade plus and am just now kicking myself for not listening to sooner.  This, again, is part of my longtime mix-up of thrash and power metal.  I lumped bullshit like Nightwish and Iced Earth with good shit like Nuclear Assault and Overkill for the longest time and ignored the genre completely.  Only in about the past two years have I unearthed thrash and only this past week have I discovered the greatness of "Rust in Peace". 

3. I'M ON TO YOU MOTHERFUCKER




Me and the lady have been on a Dexterathon the past week or so.  I've never seen it so don't go spoiling any shit!  It's the first thing we both like.  I enjoyed True Blood until the dumbass turned into a dog.

4. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER




I gave up on my scheme to read my entire bookshelf.  It didn't go to well.  I am however making an effort to read a lot this summer.  I've read 2 books already and now am finally trying to finish "The Idiot".  I need to put less stress on the books I read.  I guess since I first read Sartre or whatever I expect every book to shake my very foundation and that shit just doesn't happen.  I'm not snoody, far from it actually as I never really finish shit, but I just find myself saying "What's the point?" before hitting the 100 page mark of most books.  And since I read slow as shit that's a problem.  I'm working on it though.


That being said, what are you all up to????????

In an effort to not bombard my LJ with thoughts on the Stanley Cup Playoffs I've decided to use my highly neglected blog.

I'm sick of staring at my bookshelf and thinking more than half of those motherfuckers I started and will never finish or didn't even start.  So I have a new project where i want to read/reread my whole bookshelf.  I found a new (stupid) method to kick my slow reading ass into gear.  Divide the number of pages by 7 and that's how much I have to read in a day in order to finish a book a week (if it's a biggie I'll divide by 14).  I'll document it in LJ. 

#1 DANTE'S INFERNO




Synopsis:

I didn't understand shit!  Literally nothing!  Cool imagery on some of the tidbits I was able to decipher.  I like that the worst of the worst sinners were stuck in hunks of ice and that Beelzebub had 3 heads (or was it just 3 faces?).  Epic poetry's not my thing (I got this at Goodwill for 50 cents).

Next up:

Reza Aslan's "No God But God".  See you then!

Bummer, but that game was a classic to be sure. 

After such a hard fought game losing in overtime always stings but the pens fan in me isn't too upset with Crosby netting the game winner (and Ovechkin going home empty handed).  Miller was the better goalie by eons, Luongo was so shaky and most of the goals he let in were 900-thread-count-soft.  No worries, he'll be crying again come playoff time for the next 12 years or however long he's signed.

You know you're in need of a Mr Show-athon when you think of "train hits dumbass" after seeing a news story about a chick getting hit by a train.

This is a rehash of the podcasts to be sure but I'm still extremely excited. Karl needs worldwide exposure. Don't forget the entire XFM series is still free online. That's a whole lot of Pilkington.

UPDATE:

The whole first episode is fee on Youtube, great for the HBO-less (i.e. me).

Here's an obligatory "haven't written in here in a while" post.

Not much has been up.  Got a new job with ballin' hours that turned into no hours but luckily I have an interview somewhere else.  Gained back some of the weight I lost with my carelessness around the holiday's but I'm getting back on track, I'm still a far cry from where I started but I have some work to do.  Xmas was the shit.  Got some awesome hats, new specs, the State on DVD finally, amazing pens seats, and a blackberry.  I've been bumming around since my work schedule is a joke (5 hours!) but I'm finally going back to school this week so I can knock out this god damn AA in about 3x the amount of time it should have taken. 

Here's a bunch of recentish picturesCollapse )

Me and the fam on FSN Pittsburgh.  Im the baldy down syndrome looking guy not holding his sign up in the white jersey and hat.  My girl's next to me in the black pens shirt, my sis is holding the "Staal Good" sign and my pops is next to her.  Behind me is a shamed tampa bay fan.

Video here.  We're at the 1:33 mark.
