is this thing on?

dude, what's new, aside from the whole too busy to blog because you're a new father thing, i mean.

as the quagmires in the middle east and the koreas each deepens, the gulf of mexico turns to black and the summer of death 2010 begins, i raise this most relevant question: have you read any of the reviews for sex and the city 2? you really should! you can tell that the reviewers really leaned into challenge of describing their horror and disgust as vividly as possible. how else to explain amazing lines like, "Though the sequel is a welcome return of the four women we know and love, it's tough not to acknowledge that if we were all friends in real life, at this point we'd probably stop taking their calls." zing! or "Some of these people make my skin crawl." aaaand "The only thing memorable about Sex and the City 2 is the number two part, which describes it totally, if you get my drift."

also, are you watching party down? wha? why not?!
ps. the above image is from an exhibit i saw recently, where i also saw john lithgow eating lunch with his family. he is very tall.

Homage to Venkman

Wow. Fatherhood. It really takes up a lot of your time. Why is no one talking -- or should I say twittering -- about this? I mean, it's no joke. I haven't even watched the last episode of Treme yet. Baby Zoubs is cramping my style.

Anyway, here's another post where I take pains to remind the world that the blog is alive--thanks to all the recent hockey reportage--and the blog will rise again. For now, here's a video of my boy Sweet Daddy Purns busting up some ghosts' asses in the New York Public Library.

i'm pretty sure i've posted the above video before, but what can i say? life imitates art: sage investment advice (and an extended explanation of what "crunk" means) from l'il jon. i love the interviewer's obvious discomfort/bewilderment.

against all odds

i remember some stat from when i was a kid that no NHL team has managed to overcome a 3-1 playoff series deficit. i'm not sure whether that record still stands, but alas, the canucks were unable to beat the odds. so much for your dream of an all-canadian final, TS!

vancouver, phil understands your pain.
