Triple nerd score!

Sticks and Dicks Episode 4! This time we talk about hockey.

Okay, so it's a week old, but Puckling and I both had a) trying weeks and b) a trying time attempting to get this online in a format you could stream.

This episode!
- NEGOTIATIONS WHAT NEGOTIATIONS (why is this still relevant???? UGLY LAUGHTER.)
- The Davos Cup
- General OKC gossip (Taylor Hall's selective intelligence, Colton Teubert's baby (!!!!!), Nuge gets physical, physical.)
- World Juniors (this is now pretty dated, but whatever! Malcolm Subban and especially John Gibson remain awesome.)
- Geno kicking ass in Russia
- Taylor Crosby and other hockey-playing ladies who should be in the NHL because.... because they should.
- I really like sweaters.
- Nicole can't pronounce anything.
Russian for "Life Ruiner"

Sticks and Dick Episode 3! Or, the only reason I update my LJ anymore.

It's that time again, time for puckling and I to talk for a half hour about various and sundry hockey things and pretend you want to listen to it while driving to wherever for Thanksgiving. Also, we recorded this, like, a week ago, but technical issues and me being under the weather led to this taking longer than usual to be edited and put up.

Carey and PK fanart! Also the Ask an Blackhawk tumblr.

Marc-Andre Fleury, being... Marc-Andre Fleury:

The Sports Illustrated blog we discuss.

The mentioned Jonathan Toews video. It's actually not set to Fort Minor. I know that highlight video exists, but I can't find it, (AND ANYONE WHO CAN LINK ME TO IT WINS A PRIZE), but this one is super super super quality:

Sticks and Dicks: The Saga Continues

HEY so remember how puckling and I sometimes yell at each other and pretend it's a podcast about hockey? SURPRISE, WE DID IT AGAIN:

This time we discuss Broshie (ugh), Taylor Hall's kissing abilities, how much he loves Jordan Eberle, make random forrays into football/soccer, sigh over Carey Price's face, and bemoan the lockout. And yell at each other less than we usually do, because our marriage is strong, yo.

Nicole is quieter than me because sadly she is not sitting next to me on my bed, she's in her own stupid house, so this was recorded through GChat, and I'm too lazy to turn her up every time she speaks. Whatever, you all can hear her just fine.

Also, this was recorded for the Anti-Lockout Squee Fest so if you're in hockey fandom, go participate! It's a crazy good time full of craziness and good times.

This icon is indicative of the exact level of class this post contains.

So puckling decided to make a visit up to Boston, and in between episodes of 24/7 which we were marathoning like the junkies in remission we are, she suggested we record a "podcast" which I immediately dubbed "Sticks and Dicks" (because I'm classy, obvs) about all our hockey feels! So after soliciting our friends for stuff to talk about, here it is! A glorious half hour of us yelling at each other:

Contains feels on Broshie, stories of how we got suckered into this dumb fandom, arguments over the validity of the Flyers existing, cooing over Hall and Eberle, making sad noises about Ryan Murray's life, who we would rather be stuck in an elevator with, Kaner or Tazer, general Kaner feels, the great Carey Price Boning Agreement of '12, Carter and Richards' failure to make out under the Stanley Cup, my regrets re: not betting on Parise going to the Wild, feelings about Geno with animals, interruptions by all three of my pets, an aside on ninja_orange's crush on Tyler Seguin, a further aside on our fathers being the only men we know who watch hockey, and generalized banter of people who talk to each other every day. (By which I mean way too much. We should probably like, work on boundaries or getting an approximation of a healthy relationship.)

The Not-A-Podcast, Episode 1

Two posts in two days? WHAT?!?! WHO AM I!?!?

Basically, I was not satisfied with my voice post both in terms of relative hockey content and in terms of me being amusing (at least to myself), so I asked people to tell me what they wanted me to talk about re: hockey, and I would talk about it! The only person that responded is nicolasechs, so this is for her. The rest of you aren't cool and I don't like you.

Anyway, on this episode of this thing that is not a podcast, I discuss how I watch hockey, my feelings on Mike Richards' Canadian girlfriend, why Geno and Sid are the best (both individually and together), why Jonathan Toews would be the worst boyfriend ever, yawn a lot, and get interrupted both by thunder and by my cell phone. IT'S RIVETING.

I am not opposed to doing more of these (though it'll mean I probably have to like, find hockey icons, ugh, effort), but I'm gonna need both you guys to tell me what you want to hear about (and I'm willing to talk about anything, really, so long as it's current, ie: not Merlin from three seasons ago) and also suggestions of where else to host this that's free, because I'm gonna run out of soundcloud minutes super fast.

This was sixteen minutes until I cut two minutes of the gerbils trying to eat the microphone, which sounded like almost but a few noises of fuzz rubbing against the microphone.

Edit: I am insufficiently pleased with the relative amount of both hockey content and my ability to be amusing, so, anything you want to hear me ramble about my opinions on re: hockey? I will make a post tomorrow! You should tell me. Literally, I will go through lists of players and discuss boxers, briefs, or boxerbriefs, if you guys want. LET ME KNOW.
Redheads do it best.

Oh, August, what am I going to do with you.

What up, homes! Did you forget I had a livejournal? I bet you forgot I had a livejournal.

I'm still here, plugging away and reading your entries with sporadic/spastic commenting. Or, at least, I was, until August happened. Somehow all my doctor's appointments got shifted to the last week of July/first week of August, then we were just away Monday-Friday (with internet, but INSANELY SLOW SHITTY internet), and then I'm home this week only to go away again to my annual family camp thingy-doo, where there is no internet.

I have lost track of a lot of things. Not just my f-list. Like, there are a lot of days I just say FUCK YOU GOOGLE READER or don't read my tumblr or twitter either because jeebus cripes, have you ever noticed the internet moves really fast when you have way too much to do and then the times when you're bored no one is around? There's got to be some sort of law of physics that centers around this very principle.

So unless I've commented otherwise, this is to let you know that until the first week of September, I will not have time to catch up on my f-list. And I'm not going to bother catching up on tumblr or twitter after a weekaway, either. Therefore, if there is something I should read, comment here with a link or summary and I will read it, otherwise, I will miss it. Also! I am around on GChat (chibirhm (at) gmail (dot) com), like, all the time, and if you want my Skype, e-mail me, because it uses my real name so obviously I'm not cool posting it in a public entry.

So how have you been? There has been quite a lot going on in my life which I don't even know where to begin talking about, so, uh, Suits, amirite? SUITS IS AWESOME.

Also, the gerbils say hi. Please leave them some love too.
