Isn’t that exciting? Haha. So much for that daily posting thing, that just kind of fell apart — we got waaay to busy and I got waaay to tired, and those nights where I wasn’t tired, the hotel internet conked out.
So yeah. Who’s excited about the Canucks winning their series against the Stars? That was a tense game seven tonight — the last half of the third was full of ridiculous penalties, and there were more than a couple tense moments where Dallas nearly put the game into overtime. They ended up pulling their goalie though, and the Canucks managed to score twice more, finishing out the game 4-1 and taking the series 4-3. So now it’s onto Anaheim, which should prove to be a tough fight, with the Ducks winning three out of the last four games they’ve played against the Canucks.
Since we last spoke: Jeff and I explored a cave system in San Antonio (very cool) and ate at a couple more good restaurants, including a couple steakhouses, a big Mexican place downtown called Mi Tierra, and back to Sushi Zushi. And I picked up a few CDs too, which seems to be some kind of San Antonio tradition for me. I did the same thing last time I was there. This time around I explored a few of my favorite DJs from this years’ Ultra, picking up CDs from:
Danny Tenaglia – Global Underground 17 – London
Carl Cox – Global
John Digweed – Renaissance presents Transitions Vol. 2
I also picked up a fourth CD:
De-Phazz – Godsdog
One internet radio station that consistently amazes me is soma.fm‘s Groove Salad. Quite often, a song on that station will catch my ear*. And, when it does, I write it down. And De-Phazz had been written down enough times, that when I saw their album in the used-CD section, it caught my eye.
It’s described as electro-lounge, and all I can say is, I love it. It’s this jazzy, techno-tinged antique-yet-new music, and it’s cool as hell. My favorite track from it right now is called Happiness. Check it out, I think you’ll like it.
Well that’s probably a good spot to call it a night. With luck, more tomorrow.
