Matador is 21, and Hockey is Happening!
'Canes just won their first two games of the season in Helsinki, wish i could have been there. Second game won in a shootout by rookie Skinner; can you imagine if your first NHL goal was a shootout game-winner? Also just to make me feel old, dude was born in the 90's. here's great postgame w/ Skinner:

speaking of audio, i was lucky enough to join Peter Sagal and Wait Wait Don't Tell Me! crew long enough to play their "Not My Job" quiz. i won, but barely and with much help. i was really nervous but it was fun.
Matador 21 weekend in vegas was great and exhausting. tons of great sets, highlights for me were Come, Sonic Youth, New Pornographers, Spoon, The Clean (who really punked it up!), Yo La Tengo, Times New Viking, and the Fucked Up / Ted Leo battle of the cover bands, Scharpling & Wurster as MCs...Thanks to everyone at Matador who ran the circus, it's a ton of work and everyone seemed to be having a great time. also had fantastic Thai food, some of the best ever, at Lotus of Siam, located in one of the sketchier strip malls you'll find anywhere!
