thoughts

so, i have pondered that music often sounds very good in my car. therefore, it would be worthwhile to try recording myself with an acoustic inside of it - with modern technology, i could easily fit my laptop, mixer and microphone. the only external power i would need would be for my one phantom power unit, which i could buy a lighter adapter for...with winter coming this might have to wait until spring or a very mild day

thought two:
morality aside, i was wondering whether betrayal or rejection is worse to face


goalie commentators

it seems like every ex-goalie is a NHL commentator. here is my list of them in decreasing tolerance:

  • kelly hrudey
  • greg millen
  • darren pang
  • helen keller (go with it - she is the control...i would rather have a deaf, blind commentator than the next two)
  • lisa simpson
  • glenn healy

glenn healy is terrible!!! guh try to watch a game he does without him mentioning: kovalev, 1994 ny rangers, smartening up, kovalev going top corner backhand on a breakaway (he used to do that against me in practice), or a general negative vibe.

Update, 2012 While the cliches of Healy remain the same, he has gotten a lot better. Some games I even make it to the third period before he irks me :P


flashlights of the past and future

an observation: in sci-fi shows, whether made 30 years ago or in the present and whether set in the past or distant future, the technology of flashlights has not evolved at all...don't believe me? watch anything sci-fi...you would think that in the future we would learn to modify the dual nature of light somehow...nope just regular old flashlights down caves and abysses and underwater and in space...


doppelgangers

mike fisher and ethan hawke

tom hanks vs mark recchi

few NHLers have had the longevity of Tom Hanks
four generations

so, i saw "bullitt" for the first time a while ago...and i thought that steve macqueen looked familiar...then it hit me that he could be daniel craig's father...but i was not finished here. i tried to google two similar images, but they were mostly of the old macqueen compared to the younger craig. being hetero, and not wanting to look at too many images of the two, i realized that instead of making macqueen = craig, i could produce macqueen from craig and the simpson's moe szyslaks. further more, hockey great brett hull could be produced from craig and macqueen....

doubt it? take a look at the results...i think they speak for themselves (had i not given the lengthy, lengthy explanation)
