Kevin Coopman, member of the Brown University Club Hockey team played Juniors in Canada. Needless to say, this happened:

Luckily, someone was there to get it on film.

Hockey is the best sport in the world.

From: Grace, To: The Bass

Grace Pescatello wrote and recorded an a cappella love song a few days ago. It is called "Song for Chris" and it is very, very good. The repeated, overlapping lyrics call to mind The Fiery Furnaces in minute ten of "Quay Cur," and Grace's pronunciation of "glass" evokes that of legendary German fashion model Christa Päffgen (aka Nico).

The song lays a simple and memorable melody over 3-part harmony. It is earnest, calm, and heavenly.

Bravo, my Grace!

What have I been doing?

What have I been doing? I don't think I realize the implications of my slacking here at Pablo Bunny. I have left everyone in the dark about my views of what I consider the most important day of the century thus far:


Why, you ask?

It is tomorrow that The Flaming Lips are finally releasing their movie, Christmas on Mars, on DVD! Christmas on Mars was originally slated for a Christmas 2003 release date, so I've pretty much been unable to sleep for 5 years.

ALSO: The direct sequel to Ender's Game, Ender in Exile, is released tomorrow. Orson Scott Card will finally bridge the 3000 years between Ender's Game and Speaker for the Dead. FINALLY!

Change is here! Woo hoo!

Go march the Capitol! It's the science fiction event of the year!
