May the Sixth Be With You!

May the Fourth, or Star Wars Day (from the pun May the Force be with you), just passed as I write this. But what if you missed it, didn’t celebrate it, or didn’t have enough fun?

Well, I’ve got the perfect second chance day for that!

Welcome to May the Sixth, punning on that most evil of Star Wars organizations, the Sith!

If you missed May the Fourth, shame on you! You deserve a Sith coming your way!

If you didn’t celebrate May the Fourth, really shame on you! You deserve a Sith Lord and then some!

And if you didn’t have enough fun, here’s your chance to have some more fun! I got some little graphics below for you to start and share.

Enjoy and May the Sixth be with you! 😉

 

Happy 70th Birthday Bob Dylan! (and my Top 10 Dylan Songs)

Bob Dylan

Happy 70th Birthday, Bob Dylan!

Ah, you were so much older then, you’re younger than that now… and may you stay forever young no matter how much the times, they are a’changin’, you rolling stone you!

Man, can you believe the Bob is 70???

I sure can’t… mostly because my main association with him is through his music, and that’s mostly timeless, never aging, so the icon seems that way to me.

For Bob’s 70th, Rolling Stone magazine did a huge number of features this month on him:

Me, I did a meme tribute on Facebook to share one of my favourite Top 10 Bob Dylan songs each day leading to his birthday today. Here is my list, which was generally presented in no particular order except for the last two being my favourite two Dylan songs. It gets too hard to separate the order of the others for me.

Edmonton Oilers Gets First Pick in 2010 NHL Draft, Taylor Hall or Tyler Seguin?

The Edmonton Oilers have just been award the #1 overall pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.

If you were in their management, who would you pick?

Taylor Hall or Tyler Seguin?

Someone else?

Trade the pick away?

Beg Gretzky to return?

Do share a thought if you’ve got one in the poll below. I’ve listed the top 5 scouting picks.

The rest of the lottery picks panned out as follows. Just as the odds had it.

# 2 -Boston Bruins

# 3 – Florida Panthers

# 4 – Columbus Blue Jackets

# 5 – New York Islanders

The way the NHL lottery rules are, there isn’t much of a lottery. If you had to play the lottery that way, you probably wouldn’t ever bother.

It’s been a pretty dismal season for the Edmonton Oilers, and this fan. I’ve been a fan since the 1980s when I came to Canada and, being a little guy, was thrilled that a little guy could succeed so well. Gretzky has been my inspiration ever since. The way the Oilers are going, putting the Great One back in uniform couldn’t hurt them!
