NHL Lockout 2012

Here is a short list of things I like:

  • Hockey
  • The color pink
  • Hockey
  • The Pittsburgh Penguins
  • Nerd things
  • Sidney Crosby
  • Hockey
  • Malkin (occasionally)
Take that however you want to. I'm getting pretty mad about this whole NHL lockout situation (and I'm not the only one - NBC is losing massive sums of money). I don't enjoy other sports on TV. I'm not in the market to even watch all the Pens' games, but I still want hockey to return. Any hockey is better than no hockey. Here's why:


Sidney Crosby is something. Prime attributes: has all his teeth, speaks English, parents are super awesome, from Canada, over that concussion, seems like a nice guy. I can tell you that he participates in the charity drives that the Penguins and Lemieux Foundation do. He also seems to be pretty level-headed, as he has been a major player in the negotiation of the CBA. 


Hockey is one of the only non-fighting sports where fighting happens. I'm not condoning players getting injured. The time the Crosby has been out with concussions has hurt my soul a little bit. Just imagine how entertaining tennis would be if the players shoved each other every once in a while. 


Hockey fans are a breed all their own. Really. I can account for this personally. "Pens in 7" is still stuck in my head from last season. And this is one example from one team. You're welcome for this getting stuck in your head. 


The NHL in general cares about keeping a large fan base (minus the lockout). They have "feminine" merchandise. I tend to side with the opinion that women can wear the same colors (the teams' colors) as guys and don't need to have purple jerseys, but it's nice to know that however weird a purple jersey is that someone out there knows that women like hockey. 

In conclusion, this:


Give me my hockey back, NHL.

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

movies you should see: hiroshima mon amour

Hiroshima, Mon Amour this movie has been on my mind a lot lately, due to the recent events in Japan. when I saw it about a year ago, it easily made an impression on me. easily. it was just so beautiful, in every way thinkable. it follows the story of a French actress and her Japanese architect lover, having a conversation together as they lie in bed. the majority of the film is told in flashbacks of their lives in WWII (the film was made in 1959, so there's a ten year gap there). he was directly affected by the dropping of the atom bomb in Hiroshima; she was ostracized due to her involvement with a German soldier. the reason I was propelled to see it was the song "Burning Hearts" by My Favorite- "I was an architect, she was an actress, I drew the Eiffel Tower upon her dress." (really good song too, by the way! RIP My Favorite). luckily, you can find the movie online. here's a portion of it: I HOPE YOU LIKE READING FILMS it's given credit (so I am
