Boogaard…. I just can’t stand…

Now… don’t get me wrong… I love the Minnesota Wild, but there are a few players I just can’t stand. Don’t ask me why, but the Wild have kept hold of some garbage players…. one being Derek Boogaard.

boogaard

 

Boogaard delivered a dirty elbow with about a minute left in the 4-1 Flames win to a newly recovered Brandon Prust…. Prust is probably down again.. they say possible concussion. Damn I’m still pissed. My neighbors down below are probably still pissed at me for yellin at the tube for a decent while.

anyhow… Boogaard is suspended for the next 5 games…. (them being all on the road against good teams) and ticketed a decent $23,521.50  … what a dumbshit. 

The only thing that makes me happy in this situation is to remember the bout between Boogaard and Eric Godard….. ahhhhhhh…. thats better (see for yourself via youtube here)

hopefully the Wild make a bunch of moves for some bigger/ better players

anyways… i’ll bee around

Iggy lookin for #831

Posted in My Brand of Sports on February 25, 2009 by Nickolaus

yessir. Once again I’m talkin about the stud formally known as Jarome Iginla tearing record books apart.

iginla_jarome

Iggy is now facing the Calgary Flames all-time point record…. at 830 points held now by the great Theo Fleury.

…of course tonight’s game against the Blue Jackets mos def helped his campaign… netting a goal almost a minute into the game, an empty netter and a pair of assists. I think now we can truly say he’s outta that little scoring slump he was in for a while.

anyways… keep posted on the race for #831 @ flames.nhl.com

I’ll be around fo sho.

NDHart@soulflyweb (click)

hopefully I can hunt down some lost paintings (the mannequin (8432) for one)

I know I have a shit-ton of new pics and paintings to be uploaded, so hopefully…. RB and I can get it all sorted out… I still need to take a bunch of pics… because the ones that I do actually have are older paintings for sure…

hpim0761

Anyhow… I gotta get back to the canvas… I know you all will mos def dig this new shit…. some of the most complicated and advanced art that I’ve ever attempted for sure. 

I’ll keep it posted, and I’ll always be around… PZhpim07781

oh yeah… dont forget to get the low on the music/ creative arts @ MindInversion (Click…duh! dumb shit!)

..how about Miikka Kiprusoff!?

What can I say… the Flames game last night was def entertaining, but rather depressing as well….. Flames loose 4-3 in the shootout to Vancouver.

On the positive…. how about Miikka Kiprusoff!!!!!   I never doubted, but he’s been absolutely insane lately…. pullin saves outta nothin! Those ridiculous back-2-back saves followed by the UNBELIEVABLE stick save on the empty net….. on the same power play!!! Check it yourself via FlamesTV @ Highlights

Iginla finally dropped his goal scoring slump even though Roberto Luongo was his normal stingy self with a few dandy saves….including that point-blank-blast from Dion. damn.

Anyhow it was a very important game and I feel that Calgary will pull though on this road trip coming….@ Minnesota thurs. 19th…. then to Edmonton sat. 21st…. both huge games… this is really intense for me you must understand… i have no doubt the Flames will advance to a playoff spot; however, I feel they need to be in that #1 seed. The Wings and the Sharks aren’t all that impressive lately.

anyways… I’ll be around …. and in Madison to watch the Badgers on the 21st!

Check out more of Calgary’s highlights via Calgary Flames  and FlamesTV

Posted in My Brand of Sports with tags on February 3, 2009 by Nickolaus

I’m here….buzzed and watchin/ and or…. listening to the Flames…. Wearin the lucky sweater…. even though it’s Freddy Kruger style.

ahaha…. currently the 2nd intermission… flames 3 – Avs 4….

The Wings already won a few hours ago, but i still hope that Calgary can keep workin their way up towards the Sharks…..

Few Key Points:  …..MIKE CAMMALLERI….. !!!!!!…. i’m glad he’s clicked like I knew he would since I heard the deal…. only more goals to come.

mike

2 ) Adrian Aucoin…. always one of my favorite D Men…. hard shot…remember that skills comp slap shot with a wooden stick??!? yea.

AAucoin

3 ) Jarome Iginla …. COME ON!!! you know the name… thus, nothing else to say.

Kipper is lookin good… hopefully we’ll get to see more of Curtis McElhinney… despite the talks of a more experienced backup for Kipper… I still think McElhinney is solid for sure.

Curtis.jpg

We’ll see. (Flames still losing…. 3-4…. Calgary’s defense has gotta get up in this now… 15 mins left in the 3rd.)

Anyways… Flames are most def the hottest team in the NHL… ONLY TIME WILL TELL!!!

Looking back to008

Posted in My Brand of Music, Reminiscing with tags , , , , , , on January 26, 2009 by Nickolaus

A big part of my musical experience 2008 was def a lot of electronic/psytrance/darkpsy.  A few of my favorites from 2008 would have to be…

probably #1….

AKD “Progressing”

akd-progressing-cover

AKD is a 3 man project based in Israel, and this is their 2nd release (only 5 years after their first).  I absolutely love this album. In my mind…. this has got to be pure progressive trance music. Very atmospheric… just very very good.

Tracklist:

1 ) Archaic Myth

2 ) Alliance of Love

3 ) Evolving Spirits 

4 ) Crystal Storm Breath 

5 ) Purifying release 

6 ) Freedom From Reincarnation

7 ) Tender Elevation 

8 )New Style Trance

(My I-tunes strategy for good playlists is to mark the tracks that i really like and think are the best on the album with 5 stars (*****))   

My 5 Star tracks for this album are most def. “Alliance of Love”, “Evolving Spirits”, and “New Style Trance”

Other Albums toward the top of this list:

Gorump Peyya “Mystery Of Nitzzy”

gorump-peyya-cover

I’m sure a lot of fans out there are most familliar with Gorump Peyya (Metodi Kocev) in his collaboration of “Isentropic” with Jigar Shah (Silent Horror).

Kocev is based in Macedonia, and i really hope he keeps his trend in the output of tracks in the coming years. I think Kocev and Shah are pretty much the cream of the crop when it comes to darkpsy (along with a few others of course).

PTX  “Color Your Ears”

00-ptx_-_color_your_eyes-2008-psycz

PTX (Patrick Chen) is really takin shit head on. I would describe PTX… if i had to… as pretty much full on trance, but with a decent dose of psychedelics. My favorite tracks on this album would mos def be “Visionary”. I would give this track consideration for the best track of 2008. Absolutely beautiful.

 

Tutankhamon 9000 “Lost in Luxor”

lostinluxor

Tutankhamon 9000 is a darkpsy duo from Finland. I’m in love with this disc… everything about it….. it’s very dark, energetic, psychedelic, shit you can move and groove to. …. not to mention the album artwork is some of my favorite ever!

I think i’ll have to leave this one at 4 picks…. they are all def way up there. I think that most of my trance favorites have come out in 2007 or 2008. I’ll have to do other styles of music sometime here soon for you.

anyways… I’ll be around.

2009 time bit-ches!

Posted in Reminiscing with tags on January 19, 2009 by Nickolaus

oh yeah… i pretty much forgot about this blog… sorry for the late post…

Alas… year 2009 has finally fallen upon us.     … what to say..???….. yeah 2008 was def a blast… one of the best years i’ve had in a while despite the few random occasions. Tons of fun times, shitloads of incredible new music, millions of new stories…..

hpim0788

i’ve still been thinking a lot about writing a book… something just about ordinary life…. (2008 would have a dece chunk….. new years, eviction mayhem party, new appt happenings, thanksgiving beerfest to just name a few..) 

hpim0786

hpim07891

anyhow… my artwork is still comin along. slower than ever, but when i find time to kill it… shit really goes down. For 2009 i really wanna get the art website updated and smooth as fuck. ( i still have to hit up RBeaster about that)

hpim0793

anyways… so far in 2009 i’ve really been listening to a lot of older classics… like the very first compact disc i ever got…. “No Way Out” by Puff Daddy and the Family…….

f5ed4310fca00b5891665010l

anyways I’ll try to keep this current… sometime soon i’d like to get up a best of 2008 albums and tracks list ( i still need more listens to truly determine… and with a couple of ‘best of’ discs from Ms. Kay ‘Miggity’ Mazza… i should be able to put together a very accurate representation.

anyways…. i’ll be around
