Chapter 4: NoCal Swan Song
Having watched a bit of the classic WarGames, starring Matthew Broderick, just before bed last night, I woke with visions of global thermonuclear war and the ensuing apocalypse in my head. I’m pretty sure the dreams I’d had somehow crossed WarGames with Project X, as I’d seen scenes from WarGames being played out with chimp fighter pilots.

Now we’re talkin’. Much of the hiatus since Lost’s last episode a month ago were spent without much thought about the show, something I think was precipitated by the inconsistent quality of the season thus far. I’d almost forgotten there was a new episode until this morning, my interest had waned so much. Well, give all due credit to the brain trust behind Lost, because after tonight’s payoff-of-sorts, I’m back to firm footing on the grounds of Lost fandom, counting the minutes until next Thursday’s episode. I’m all for understated character development most of the time, but it’s nice to get explosions, gun battles, black smoke freight trains, time travel, and a towering hurricane of wanton death and destruction every once in a while too.

April 14, 2008. Pittsburgh Penguins at Ottawa Senators.
As much crap as I give the Sabres for the decisions they’ve made, at least they don’t have a guy dressed up in a buffalo suit snorting at center ice, exhorting embarrassed fans to cheer for VICTORYYYYY!

Bruce Springsteen and his E-Street Band graced a snowbound downtown Buffalo with a rollicking good time last Friday night, managing to unite fans of all ages in rock-n-roll euphoria for two hours of sheer enjoyment. A show like this makes me realize how much I’m missing out by focusing so intently on all things Pearl Jam. I’ve seen fourteen of their shows, all the while missing out on the other acts I love, even when they come into Buffalo. U2, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Neil Young, even Metallica. They’ve all played memorable shows in the area the past couple of years, and I’ve made the mistake of not attending any of them. No more!
