It's the All-Star Weekend, which is a really great time to not pay attention to hockey. Instead of watching the skills competition last night I watched six episodes of Hemlock Grove in a row, which is an actively terrible show. The actual game, or well, tournament is this afternoon. Maybe it will be cool? Who knows. Anything is possible.
Today: weird music. Great weird music.
