In order to prevent Cait from hunting me down and smothering me with a pillow in my sleep I will now proceed to write a review of The Hands That Thieve by Streetlight Manifesto.
The big reason that I haven’t written a review yet, besides being lazy, is that I really like to take my time with Streetlight Manifesto albums. Or album if you’re counting the ones that has been released since I started to write reviews. I wasn’t enthusiastic about Somewhere In The Between when it first came out, and it was not until a couple months later that I understood how good of an album it was. Things were quite different with The Hands That Thieve (THTT). From the first listen I was getting into nearly every track on the album. Time will tell, but this newest release may emerge as my overall favorite Streetlight album.

Finally a book review that has nothing to do with steamy sex and every thing to do with a Punk Army. Released on April 9th, Punk Rock Jesus by Sean Murphy is a Vertigo published graphic novel about cloning Jesus, the evils of reality tv and Corporate America, the IRA, and punk rock music. I was expecting something crazy but ended up with a whole mess more.
This week we don our black veils, not in honor of the new Stanley Cup champion L.A. Kings, but because the crushing melancholy of the off-season has officially crept upon us. Just kidding, this week we discuss what possible impact the original sunbelt franchise winning a Cup might have on hockey in California. Also, we discuss tinfoil hat-wearing fans, certain writers who love nothing more than to rain on hockey's parade, L.A. punk rock, AND America. No guest this week so it's just Peter and I rambling on.
