So I saw a commercial this evening for the Blackberry Playbook and I have to say it is the first time I had watched a commercial in which I was actually excited about this products. It was a commercial through Best Buy, which I know due to the khakis and blue polo attire on the featured pitch-person in the commercial. The thing that really seemed to erect my excitement in this product was not actually the product itself, but the lovable, cute-faced goddess featured in the commercial. If anyone can find me the commercial (trust me I have been looking with tight pants for the past fifteen minutes) please link it here.

I would like to be that giraffe. I have to go though, I am currently in the middle of pitching a tent.

What's actually pretty cool about Community is that Dan Harmon acknowledges how the show's community shapes the show.

Things might have turned out very differently if he didn't tweet, or read fan comments.

Just from twitter, he got the concept of 'streets ahead' and the whole librarian subplot for the Valentine's Day episode.

You see guys, Guy Boucher doesn't have a 'RW', 'LW, and 'C'.

He sees them simply as binaural beats when coming into the zone.

Other teams have yet to figure out how to defeat this. Or in fact, what any of that even means. It's every bit as complex and unconventional as you make it out to be.

Boucher is like Jackson Pollack. Nobody has any idea what his work means, but for some reason, it's money.

It's about the process, not the end result.



I think

It's closer to what I would call 'The Guy Boucher Offensive Experience'.

'Hockey' is just a label used by labelers to label things and put a label on them.

They need to make it something like this, but with Boucher yelling at you.

I think 'The Guy Boucher Offensive Experience' would be something like Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory (especially the tunnel scene). With each defending player meeting an end sort of like the kids in the movie (in an appropriately hockey way).

One time I wanted some Golden Grahams but the Golden Grahams in my house were too stale and old, so I took the bag out of the Golden Grahams box and put it in the Weetabix box. I showed my parents the empty golden grahams box and we went out to buy some.

After I enjoyed the extreme hooney coated taste of Golden Grahams, I felt so guilty that I needed to make something bad happen to myself to balance it out. I was seriously distraught that I'd lied and cheated my way to a fresh box of Golden Grahams, so I jumped out of a second story window and broke both my legs. I told everyone the mailman threw a package at me while I was looking out of the window, and I lost my balance and fell, and he was fired. A few weeks later he killed himself. If I'd only eaten the Golden Grahams, he'd be alive today.

I don't regret it. The extreme honey taste of Golden Grahams is worth any number of lives.

I doubt your story because if you're so deadset on getting Golden Grahams, you wouldn't have let them go stale in the first place.

You know whose story this really is? The parents. They get deceived into buying Golden Grahams, and then they end up paying higher insurance premiums because of the broken legs. They were also probably the ones who complained about the mailman. What a job they've done raising their kid.

I am using a new keyboard on my PC now. My girlfriend said the other one was way too loud and the natural oils in my skin had worn off some of the letters, so I went to a wireless one I bought brand new yet never used. It seems to be quieter but it feels weird. I guess I have to get used to it. I'm one of those that when I get comfortable with something, if I have to change, it really screws me up.

At least CDK wasn't duct taped over his mouth and thrown in a trunk to die.

Meh.

At least Recchi continued the tradition on national television, of holding the cup and saying "****ing right!"

I find it interesting how quickly some guys will pass the cup off. It's a little side note into their psyche. Some guys who played every game and deserve to hold it the most, get it, kiss it (often twice for some reason) and then almost immediately hand it off.

Then there's the AHL callup who played 0 minutes all season with the NHL team, and they're taking victory laps, scratching **** in, etc.

Probably not.

All of these places have grown tired of the leadership, and have revolted for change.

It was just coincidence that that they were wearing Canucks sweaters as the game had just ended.
