Random Thoughts For Lack Luster Coverage of the Euro Cup Friday June 13, 2008

So If you know anything about the ol’overdrive, you’ll know I love International Football. I’m not a huge club fan, but I absolutely love International Football. Whenever the World Cup or Euro Cup rolls around I virtual shut down and get lost in the entire tournament.

This year I haven’t even looked at the sports pages. Which in truth is lucky for Munchkin, as she has two years to ease into the madness that is this International Football Machine. And the reason – Zero of my golden Triangle of teams are worth watching for this year’s Euro Cup. England’s out. Ireland’s out. And with Portugal riding on that puffter Christiano Ronaldo, I can’t even stomach watching a game. Bring me back Luis Figo damnit!

So I’ve your wondering why the site isn’t plastered with English Flags, that’s the reason.

First – This is exciting T-shirt Nerd News, but GoMedia & Design By Humans have achieved the unimaginable, the unachievable, the holy grail of T-Shirt Printing.

They’ve released The Bold is Beautiful T-Shirt.

Silk Screening is such a complicated process of laying layers of color on fabric, that to achieve that many colors on one T-shirt is absolutely phenomenal.

Second – Writers (or Copy Writers) of the world, here’s a bunch of reasons why you should be on twitter. (from the guys at StaleLife)

I’m looking directly at you Nathan & Lou Ducharme!

Third – So I missed this yet again this year, but FastForward has released it’s Best of Calgary 2008. I’m not making nay comments on this year’s picks. I’m not even going to comment on the whole sexiest Female Category this year as that might stir up more Tara McCool vs. Astrid Kuhn emails.

Fourth – Sled Island’s Full line-up has been announce. The big non-Mewata show to keep in mind is Thursday Night’s concert with the Cryptomaniacs.

Via la Cryptomaniacs!

Fifth – My World of World of WarCraft Character would be a half-Irish/Half-English thick rimmed Glasses Geek who plays Lego Indiana Jones either that or a second rate page six model. (via. laughingsquid)

Sixth – Ha! Segway’s Suck. (via. The Twitterfeed)

Seventh – Good God Canada! What is with our national cultural icons nowadays! It looks like CityTV has shut down speakers corner. All I can say is Boourns! This is the single worst PR move since the CBC lost the HNiC theme song. (via. ambermac)

Eight – Important reading for anyone who resides on the internet in Canada or has any stake in Digital Music. (Again, link via. ambermac)

After reading this article, I think we’ve all become Digital Pirates. If Mr. Jim Prentice Wishes to impose these laws on the citizens of Canada, I demand he provides Eye-Patches and Parrots to us citizens.

Ninth – To get everyone excited about the weekend and any potential road trips; Stereogum has released the first of it’s Remix Artist Collectives. their first addition comes from André Allen Anjos and features remixes of Bloc Party, Tokyo Police Club, Chromeo and RA RA RA RIOT!

Check out the player below or just download the tracklist on stereogum.com

Happy Mid-June Everyone!
