Like it says: odds & ends; I’ll try to post this once a week to track things I read, quick updates, thoughts, links, etc.
The Penguins won the Stanley Cup!
The Pittsburgh Penguins are back-to-back champions.
Have I mentioned the Penguins won the cup?
I might be a little excited about all of this.
Malteses everywhere. #RaiseThePup!
- Natalie Imbruglia – Torn
This popped up on the radio when I was in DC for my sister’s wedding.
20 years makes a big difference. I’d always change the station when it came on in the 90s, this time I made sure I figured out who it was and finally got around to downloading it last night. She’s pretty good at covers.
I finished David Lynch’s Catching the Big Fish.
- I jotted down the story of how I started using fountain pens. There’s a Bill Murray cameo, naturally.
- American Gods, Episode 7
This might be my favorite episode so far.
Twin Peaks: The Return, Episode 6
Definitely better than last week, although there was a suspicious lack of certain characters and storylines…
Into the Badlands
I watched the first two episodes of this. It’s surprisingly cool and catchy. I’m definitely going to keep watching over Summer while there’s not much else on. 1
The Pittsburgh Penguins Stanley Cup Championship Parade
“What can we say about this group of hockey players here? I just think there isn’t a group I’ve been around that knows how to win more than these guys. … These guys are fierce competitors. They just know how to win, they just find ways to get it done. We couldn’t be more proud of them. … I said a little something last year, seeing if we could do this again. I wonder if we could repeat, or three-peat, should I say?”
What a leader, possibly the best coach in Penguins history. There’s no reason it can’t happen again; if they could get through this season with all the injuries, anything is possible.
All Access: Quest for the Stanley Cup
I binged four episodes last night. Starts at the conference finals and episode 4 ended with Nashville taking Game 4. So tonight’s episode should be pretty good. There was a great bit in episode 4 with Sullivan and his dad playing cards in their back yard.
Another fun fact: both Laviolette and Sullivan named their dogs Stanley.
It looks rainy for tonight and Sunday, so probably catching up on some reading. Tomorrow’s supposed to be nice; maybe some photography?
