Pascal Dupuis calls it a career - Baloo
http://penguins.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=791588&cmpid=pit-twt-penguins Thank God. Watching Dupuis try to play hockey after repeated blood clots was legitimately terrifying, and I thought there was a pretty good chance he was going to die on the ice. He did everything he could to keep his care...

Force Majeure (spoilers) - Baloo
Finally got around to watching it this weekend. For those that don't know, it's a Swedish film about a family on a ski vacation and the father runs away from the family during a controlled avalanche. Everyone is fine, and then the recriminations begin and reveal the fissures in the "perfect" family....

Chris Squire dead at 67 - Baloo
http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/founding-yes-bassist-chris-squire-dead-at-67/ Yes' bassist, founding member, and only musician never replaced, died this morning. I openly hate prog rock, but man, he was part of one of rock's all-time great rhythm sections. Unlike a lot of other prog bands, Yes c...

Sorry for the delay everyone, but the results are in. First, a few facts about the voting itself: 130 Different albums received votes, and 43 of those appeared on at least 2 ballots. This gave us a pretty big field and a wide voting distribution, allowing me to confidently go into a Top 20. Every...

Fresh Ice! NHL Season-Long Thread, Part 2 - Baloo
Sorry, meant to have this up before Tuesday night. Been busy. So, here is your unofficial NHL refereeing test. Assess the penalty: [img]http://giant.gfycat.com/NiftyVacantCero.gif[/img] The actual call on the ice was two minors. Both on Ovie (holding and roughing). So apparently, being ridicul...

The best thing about the Playoff selections... - Baloo
We are talking about how Baylor or TCU got screwed, and not Oregon. Under the BCS formula, the title game would be Bama v. FSU, leaving out perhaps the best team in the country. The playoff was worth it just to prevent the ultimate screw job of Oregon. ...

Fantastic Four - Michael Chabon's Script - Baloo
Michael Chabon is one of my favorite authors, but I was unaware that he made a pitch for the Fantastic Four. Had a meeting with the producers and everything. They didn't go in his direction, unfortunately, and we were left with the crappy movies we got (and it appears, we are going to get again). an...

Orioles actually win something! - Baloo
First division title since 1997, which was the first one since 1983. I honestly can't believe it. This is just a wonderful, beautiful team. Everything went wrong, and three of the team's best players are currently out, yet they are the team to break the drought. I am getting really f'n drunk. [i...

Preacher (comic -- SPOILERS) - Baloo
Preacher has been in development hell for over a decade, but they are finally adapting the popular comic into a TV show. I've never actually read it, so I went down to my local comic shop, picked up a trade paperback, and read the first 12 issues. It's one of the the most praised comics of my life, ...

The Germs are the band people think the Sex Pistols are - Baloo
Listening to (GI) and pondering the ridiculously stupid suicide of Darby Crash (they literally had one last show so he could raise money to buy enough heroin to kill himself -- not a joke). Stiil, the album is amazing and a billion times better and more "dangerous" than anything the Pistols put out,...
