What a Disappointment...

How does a team come out so flat against an opponent that's not making the playoffs, isn't skating its best player (and several other regulars), and doesn't even have a full roster due to salary cap issues?  Isles have to…

A little luck...

Played 2-3 last night and booked a win, although it was the result of a terrible all-in bluff check-raise that spiked an ace on the river.  I need to temper my instincts to try to force people out of hands…Read more

Home Stretch...

Gearing up for a release has proven to be an incredibly involved process.  It's great that I'm running everything through the first time with a "preliminary" single that's primarily being used to get the social media ball rolling (which -…

Back From the UK...

Returned a little over two weeks ago from Scotland, where I travelled to witness the live recording of the string parts for the album.  I didn't really need to be there, as the sessions were run incredibly well by both…

Productive weekend...

Had a very positive night at the poker table, notwithstanding the fact that I was dealt pocket kings three times in the first hour of play - and lost two of those hands.  Gotta love variance... particularly when it eventually…

A lost season...

Islanders have just gone down 6-2 to the Bruins in this weekend matinee.  They may have been playing better of late, but the season's disappointing result is more than just a function of the slow start attributed to the extended…Read more
