Man somehow survived the double earthquakes today and caught some of the pens game. Really great to see the pens put out a dominating performance, you guys. DJ is a personal fav, great to see him back, and of course free candy.

Listen man, I was super pumped about adding Paul Martin a year ago. This guy, with Coach Z, were gonna introduce a golden age of Pens D. Obvi, last year got pretty rough with the offense going to the guillotine. But the D was still spectacular. A lot of this was focused on Brooks, Z and Tanger who shut it down. P-Mart, even though strong, was supposed to flourish under Danny Balls' high tempo game where his puck handling skills, ever present in American defensemen, would explode into a puck handling fiesta. This didn't happen too much as the most he touched the puck was sometimes working the point on the PP.

Tonight this dude was awesome. He was pinching and flying through the habs zone. He must've had 5 incredible keeps on the blue line. Z struggled and took some penalties, so P-Mart had to re-up on the PK, but played high energy the whole game. I was super impressed, and hope that the incredible P Mart will show up on a regular basis.

Man. Go Pens.

J Cole - Cole's World

Well, after all the years and years of hype... It's really good. I was pretty skeptical, but man he mixed it up with some different stuff, but still focused on the mellow, relaxed beats that really go well with his voice and rhyme style. Highly recommended.

Beats, Rhymes and Life

So I got to see the ATCQ documentary finally last night. It opened in SF last weekend, but didn't make it out for one reason or another until last night. It was pretty good, definitely worth seeing if you like tribe, native tongues, or any of that biz. Michael Rapaport does a sweet job in the interviews I think... and pretty much captures live the meltdown of Phife and Q-Tip's relationship. I had no idea Phife's health was such a huge part of it, but you don't come away blaming either (they both are super stubborn dudes), just feeling bad for Ali. It was about 65% about their relationship as a group and 35% about how the music was made and developed. I would of liked a little more about the music, but that's ok, the relationship is probably more interesting for most people.

Some really great surprises:
  • Learning about Jarobi's role with the group. He's a good guy.
  • Pharrell's interviews were really passionate, I always really liked him and this makes him cooler.
  • Madlib does the soundtrack! Dropped some shades of blue in there with the ATCQ mixing.
  • J Dilla got a bunch of shoutouts somehow.
  • De La Soul was super cool.
  • Mos Def made some appearances.
  • The title screen intro was really great.
Looks like they cut out a bunch of interviews that might have been cool: Ludacris, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Hieroglyphics. They also give a bunch of hype for Q-Tip's 2nd solo album, which sounds pretty much like his first album that wasn't that great.

Mary's Slippers

When Mary leaves town, I wear her slippers a lot. It's like someone turned two pomeranian puppies into stylish slippers. They are also way too small.

Shitstorm of Awful

Out of body experience right now where I am watching myself with a bowl of popcorn and laughing.

Here's what I envision: Pens, Flyers in playoffs. Jagr gets on ice for first shift, then sits on bench after the change. He glances up at the scoreboard and somehow locks eyes with #66. All of a sudden he can't look away. His heart is racing. He clutches it, and can feel it straining. The trainer tries to get his attention. It's no use. He collapses in a spasm.

Good God what just happened.

New Album Fallout

Kid Cudi 2 came out a while ago, but is anyone else feeling pretty bummed that both that album and Lupe's new stuff are not very good?

This sucks wtf.

House of Air

Made it out to the house of air last night! Got to fill in for KB's dodgeball squad. The dodgeball was ok. There was rampant, rampant cheating as the ref couldn't see too much. Not sure what man can be obviously hit 3 times and pretend not to notice.

The sweet thing was the big trampoline zone where you could bounce forever doing sweet stuff. Thought I would be immediately pulling double corks, but that proved to be impossible. The jump challenge, where you only get 1 jump per section, was really hard. I made it up to 4.5 or something before I teetered out.

Flight on Simpsons

Did you guys know about this? I'm about to watch. Yes, the office is empty.

EDIT: Holy crap when did the Simpsons give up on any semblance of a plot??

EDIT: That link is totally wrong, sorry.

EDIT: Fixed.

EDIT: Not that funny. Highly recommended to fast forward just to Flight stuff.

The Bugs Part II

I think they might be back? Turned on the lights after hanging with Steveo, Dave, and Pepe, and found 1 or 2 chilling by the microwave... but overturning and examination of the microwave did not prove effective. This is scary/non-motivational.

Also, have you ever really struggled to get a drink at a bar... then some unattractive chick gets served before you and then (IN YOUR FACE) says "do you need me to get you served" yeah, ok, maybe... after I THROW ALL THESE LEMONS IN YOUR EYES.

The Bugs

For a couple of months we have been on and off bothered by these tiny flying cockroach things. They would disappear when we tried a new bug killing method, but would return soon after. Today I found their home.

I went to fill up the coffee pot, and right when I pulled it out there was like five roaches plus some baby roaches. God damn. Then they scurried under the coffee machine... through the little holes, where I took a close look and promptly barfed. Goodbye Mr. Coffee. I wish it had been the salad machine.

Greatest Pro Bowl Moment Commemoration

Since the pro bowl is tomorrow, I'd like to take this moment to remind everyone of the greatest god damn play that crappy game has ever seen. Boom.

RIP buddy, you were the best.

In class, a girl was drinking (throughout an hour of class) room temperature milk out of a nalgene. This was very gross to me for tons of reasons.

- Sipping milk at such a temperature over a long period of time would give you awful breath.
- That nalgene is going to need many washes to get the smell out, and this girl is just gonna rinse it. I know it.
- That shit is gross!

Awful. Gagging a little bit replaying it in my mind, thinking about this milk going into MY MOUTH!

Chappelle Sighting??

Did anyone see the end of Tosh.0 the other night? I think that was def Chappelle running on the stage to dance around at the end.
