Double Album Reviews: I'm afraid he's too cool to see you right now

Here we are in the midst of another Monday and I have another round of reviews for you. I've got two today, because after finishing the write up for the new Sidekicks album I felt compelled to do a second album. In addition to the previously scheduled look at Awkward Breeds you also get a quick glance at the equally quick Rock You to Sleep from the hockey mad Hextalls. Also get excited, later in this week I should be writing my first non-review for Up The Pucks alongside the brilliant Brandon Gee. There, that gives you something to look forward too. On to the reviews with you then.

It's An Album Review: I don't want to go to heaven with a headache

Ok, so I've been sidelined with a health problem and then a bad reaction to the medication that I was taking. It was nasty and I really wanted to write a review for the new Menzingers album. So, I made it happen. I'm trying out something new this time since there are no music videos from On The Impossible Past I've got a little soundcloud box with three different tracks from the album. I don't know if I'll do this consistently, or if its a sometimes thing, but I'm sure you'll deal with it one way or another. Life is often all about coping. But now, on to the review of the Menzingers' On The Impossible Past.

Howson, Nash & the Blue Jackets: Is THIS the bottom?

Well that could have gone better. You're probably aware of what a disaster this season has been for Columbus, it started shortly after Jeff Carter barricaded himself in his house for a couple days before GM Scott Howson & team captain Rick Nash(they were still buddies then) had to travel to Jersey and convince him to come out of hiding...
