Whattya Listenin' to Wednesday - 3/3/10

Hails once again, valued readers!

Keeping things short this week as the snow finally melts down and life resumes with a bit more normalcy. Status quo over here, and getting excited with six chapters of the novel left to write before the first draft is complete.

Congrats to our Canadian brothers and sisters up north for not only scoring the most Olympic gold but also for sweeping out the US men and women's hockey teams for all the marbles--or medals in this case. As a longtime hockey fan, I know damned well what this means to you Canuckleheads to win both on your home turf, so revel in it. The Olympics as a whole was practically epic, though I'm still catching a lot of what I missed On Demand and tapes.

A lot of Overkill and Celtic Frost plus jazz this week as my boy wanted large doses of both. Love that kid! Who am I to deny my child want he wants, right? Of course, the new Heathen album has been a large fixture on the road with me, ya-huh!
