I am one week away from a very awesome birthday, so if there isn't an off-topic thread written next week, you'll probably understand why. (Perhaps I can get Trevor to write it? We'll talk later. No really.)
(EDIT: Useless sentence deleted)
You ever go on an iTunes-buying binge because you have lots of store credit? I do.
Here's one of the songs I added to my library.
You may recognize that song from an Apple ad.
Also, since I'm in LA, and I have an internship with KCBS/KCAL for sports news, I tried to get media credentials for the Stanley Cup Finals. No dice. *sadpanda*
TUESDAY EDIT: If you haven't seen my fanshot regarding TSN using Texas Star Taylor Vause's "Call of Doughty" photoshop on their facebook page without properly crediting him, check that out here. I took a screencap of the post, and tweeted a side-by-side comparison of Vause's work and TSN's post. Apparently enough people told TSN that they were using Taylor Vause's work without crediting him that they reposted the picture but edited the caption giving @wizardofvause (Taylor Vause's Twitter handle) credit. Here's SportsCentre's tweet:
Taylor definitely took the high road in all of this:
I'd like to give Taylor a shoutout for personally reaching out to scm83x (manager of Texas Stars blog "100DegreeHockey") and I thanking us for helping him earn proper credit from TSN for using his work. It's always very much appreciated when players at any level, such as Eric Nystrom and Taylor, reach out to fans/bloggers such as ourselves. I'm glad I could help out with getting TSN to credit you. Good luck with the Texas Stars, and hopefully you'll be in the NHL some day!
