hockey's back, so's the blog

we have a new addition to the family, and having a 2-week old in the house is less conducive to blogging than you'd think. still, i've found time recently to go see the Dirty Projectors, who get better and better, and attend game 1 of the 2007-2008 NHL season, in which the 'Canes lost for the fifth year straight on opening night....still, it was a good game and i wasn't too bummed. Cam Ward kept them in the game and had a spectacular save in the first. Carolina blew two 5 on 3 chances and the defense seemed a step slow. Koivu came through in the OT for the Habs and we get a point...still, excited about the season.

been rocking a lot of good new music (and old) around the house during paternity leave...

Kevin Drew - Spirit If...
Bruce Springsteen - Magic
Mum - Poison Ivy somethingerother
Allen Toussaint - Life, Love & Faith
Black Lips - Good Bad Not Evil
Bill Evans - Trio '64
Anita O'Day - Mosaic box
new Iron & Wine
Okkervil River - the Stage Names
Lee Scratch Perry - Super Ape
Amadou & Miriam - compilation of older stuff

lots more on deck...

What name did you pick?

My first born (regardless of sex) will be called "Mac" Due mostly because of you and partly of my love for McDonalds.

Congrats on your new child. I too pulled for Mac as a name, regardless of gender, but my wife vetoed it. I did commemorate the birth with "Song for a Clock" on the first drive home and by wearing my Mergefest 15 shirt.

Is his middle name Class?

Congrats. Having recently joined the fatherhood club (five months ago), I now know the twin feelings of lack of sleep and sheer amazement.
