Dave Thorvald – feeling the pressure of the final five Canucks games – rambles on about character, strategy and good luck charms in the hours leading up the critical Hockey Night in Canada matchup versus the Calgary Flames.
He waxes nostalgic while reviewing Canucks history and recapping the highs and lows of the Canucks’ seasons since 1993-94, then indulges in a few thoughts from the 1970s while reading an article about Jake Milford flying to Sweden in the Pig Express. Grab two beverages, it’s a long one.
Well, not entirely shameless promotion … I came across the Canadian Podcast Buffet who play promos from well, … Canadian Podcasts. Bob and Mark of the CPB request that worthy Canadian podcasters send in a 120 second, 128Kbps, .mp3 format Podcast Promo.
I dutifully followed their instructions and here’s the result for those of you who don’t get enough Canucks Outsider:
My buddy Cosmo – and knowing that i am an enthusiast of Vincent Van Gogh and modern-ish art in general – passed along an Olympian article (now that i live in North Vancouver, i thankfully don’t read it much ;-)) about a exhibition in Seattle put on by the friendly billionaire Paul Allen.
In short, the exhibition will juxtapose works of art from different eras in an attempt to emphasize the similarities of concept or intent despite the apparent differeces in medium or technique (i.e. Monet next to Jimi Hendrix). In other words, art is art is art unless it is not art.
Here’s the roster (BTW, I am totally gonna see this stuff and try to resist my art thief impulses).
Canucks static montage Plus updates on Giants playoff series versus Prince George Cougars, B.C. Women’s Championship, Winter Olympic flag ceremony, and an unusual amount of housekeeping details where Dave pimps his other podcasts, encourages listener participation and schelps Bryght websites.
