In Retrospect, This Makes Total Sense

Came across this on CollegeHumor while trying to forget how old I am.

My roommate in Orientation was a pretty creepy dude. Nice enough in Orientation-terms but once the world was opened up to people beyond one-eighth of the freshman class, his weirdness shone. If my memory serves he was kind of like Dwight Schrute with a black belt.

Oh, and just to show how old I am... I was on's list of first ever Campus Reps. Then they never sent me anything. Could you imagine if my talents ended up over there? They missed out on one good column every 7 months.

My Favorite Canadians List - Post Krug/Bay Weekend

After the events of last weekend I've finally been able to rework my list of Favorite Canadians. Jason Bay's scorching Red Sox debut helped his cause but not as much as Wolf Parade's killer set helped Spencer Krug. Also factoring, my first viewing of the trailer for "Nick And Norah's Infinite Playlist" and falling asleep to Arrested Development DVD's every night for the past 2 years.

1. Milan Lucic - I wouldn't be a true fan of Boston hockey if I didn't love the play of Milan Lucic. He plays hard, kicks peoples' asses, and seems like a pretty funny dude. It also helps to picture Ike Brovlovski saying, "Yay, Milan!" after he scores goals.

2. The Collective Consciousness Of the Arcade Fire - Sure they're from all over, but collectively they are an entirely Canadian band. Like indie-rock Voltron. Or not. I love them.

3. Michael Cera - Not really sure where to begin, or if I even have to explain myself. Arrested Development. Clark and Michael. Superbad. Juno. Whatever he's in, it rules.

4. Spencer Krug - The Wolf Parade show on Saturday was fucking awesome in part due to the awesome vocal stylings of Krug. The guy's a force and I immediately bought Sunset Rubdown tickets for September after the show (that's Krug's other band.) I also had a fanboy run-in moment with Krug at the Paradise Rock Club before the show. I was alone near the merch tent in the front hallway and Krug came walking out to look outside, he then turned out and walked back down the long hallway towards me. The entire time I was thinking of what I would say to him (Went from, "Hey Spencer"->"Have a good show"->"Hey"->:knowing head nod pending eye contact:) Naturally, no eye contact was made, and I just stood against the wall, flustered. I'll rectify this at the Middle East next month, where acts just walk around all the time. Plus, I'm pretty sure my girlfriend wants to hug him.

5. Will Arnett - Come on!

Honorable Mention: Jason Bay, Marc Savard, Tim Riggins

Civilian Canucks were not included in this poll.

A Big Weekend For Canadian-American Relations

As most some none one of you know, I keep a running list of 'Favorite Canadians'. I don't know why I have to keep a running tab on our neighbors to the North, but I do.

Right now Milan Lucic is in the top spot, and only a brutal sophomore slump could knock him out.

Behind him, the collective consciousness of Arcade Fire. Spencer Krug of Wolf Parade and Sunset Rubdown is in the top 3, but here's where it gets dicey.

Friday Jason Bay is making his debut of the member of the Red Sox. Bay, of course, is from British Columbia.

Saturday, I go to see Wolf Parade.

The list is currently in flux, and usually not as populated until fall and winter (for obvious reasons). Could it change based on impending events? This is an important weekend.

I'm sure Zach Schiff will be playing close attention.
