My Paul Frank frames aren’t even that old, but I am feeling these from Rocksmith.

Joe Posnanski on the mediocre officiating in Sunday’s Chiefs v. Raiders game:

“Though to be fair to the officials, officiating this game would be like refereeing a fight between Andrew Golata and the Penguin from the Batman TV show. One guy’s hitting low, the other guy’s spraying knockout gas from his umbrella, it’s going to be tough to keep up.”

Tegan and Sara – Sainthood

Posted in music by arcanedufresne on November 16, 2009

You would be hard pressed to find a band with a bigger buzz than the precocious tandem of Canadian sisters, Tegan and Sara. I know I was not alone in feeling the excitement and anticipation leading up to the release of their newest album, Sainthood, and thankfully they brought forth another fantastic offering.


Listen to Northshore

Laced with a brooding pop sensibility throughout, Sainthood seems to take a slightly more serious tone than the duo’s previous releases. The consistent synth presence give the album a more melodic 80’s, new wave vibe, which actually compliments the poignancy of the Quin twins quite well, especially on tracks like On Directing and Don’t Rush. From the straight forward rock of Northshore, to the mellow and subtle intricacy of The Ocean (my current personal favorite) to the quirkiness of Alligator, Sainthood is dynamic, emotional and relentlessly addictive. Short and sweet today. Go get this album.
