2009 stanley cup finals

May 30, 2009 under Hockey, Sports

I redeemed my self in the conference finals, nailing both of them. Now it all comes down to this. Do or die. And…

…it pains me to say it, but I think Detroit is going to win – again! Ugh. At least this time, I wouldn’t be annoyed as I usually would. Detroit and Michigan have fallen on some serious hard times – have you seen the empty seats at the Wings’ home games during these playoffs? Maybe winning it all would make this financial meltdown a little bit more bearable for those in Detroit.

what i'm listening to – may 2009

May 28, 2009 under Uncategorized

Someday, I’ll remember how to write a proper blog post complete with content worth reading. But until that day comes, here’s what I’m listening to lately.

Crippled Black Phoenix200 Tons of Bad Luck
A Love of Shared Disasters prepared us for the apocalypse and 200 Tons of Bad Luck is the traveling carnival you visit on the way out.

IsisWavering Radiant
Still drone-y, but Isis have added a few new instruments to their toolbox (organs!).

JapandroidsPost-Nothing
If No Age were more tuneful or if Death From Above 1979 stuck around long enough to record new albums, they might sound like Japandroids. Fuzzed out and catchy pop songs.

Junior BoysBegone Dull Care
Synth pop minimalists just got a little less minimal.

MetricFantasies
Every Metric album up to this point has always sounded like something to kill the time in between Broken Social Scene albums. Now that BSS is on hiatus, Metric has finally recorded a full-fledged album with all the trimmings.

Silversun PickupsSwoon
Rocks with the familiarity of Carnavas but with the expected sophomore album touches like overdubs and strings.

Yeah Yeah YeahsIt’s Blitz
It’s Blitz has me chair disco dancin’ in my cubicle.

round three – conference finals

May 17, 2009 under Hockey, Sports

Wow, I was I way off, going 1-3 in round two’s predictions. Let’s see if I can redeem myself in the Conference Finals:

East
Pittsburgh vs Carolina

West
Detroit vs Chicago

I’m really unsure about that Pens-‘Canes series. Carolina aren’t called the “Cardiac ‘Canes” for nothing. They definitely have the ability to surprise everybody.
