The Wrens’ Kevin Whelan & Charles Bissell Trade Blows In New Interview About Breakup

Kevin Whelan, formerly of the Wrens, is releasing Observatory, his debut album as Aeon Station, next month on Sub Pop. Notoriously, half of the album was originally recorded for inclusion on the next Wrens album, the long-awaited follow-up to 2003’s widely beloved The Meadowlands, which was also supposed to be released by Sub Pop. But due to a falling out with Wrens bandmate Charles Bissell — who has been tinkering with the new Wrens music for more than a decade, and who was seeking more robust ...

Alexander: Rams sent a message to the league Sunday

INGLEWOOD – Rams players and coaches said all week that Sunday’s meeting with (gotta phrase it this way) Tom Brady and the defending champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers wasn’t a measuring stick. You didn’t believe them, did you? Downplaying its significance during the week didn’t stop a loud, vibrant crowd (73,205 tickets distributed) with plenty of star power from showing up at the corner of Century and Prairie, greater L.A.’s newest place to see and be seen. Mike Tyson, Sugar Ray Leonard, Magic John...

Aeon Station – “Queens”

It’s been 18 years since New Jersey indie rockers the Wrens released their dejectedly soaring late-career masterpiece The Meadowlands, and for most of that time, they’ve been talking about following it up with one last LP. Wrens mouthpiece Charles Bissell’s endless tinkering and false promises on that front have turned the album into a Chinese Democracy situation, yet no matter how rightfully skeptical any of us may be, that new Wrens album remains a holy grail for fans.

Death toll rises in South Africa rioting after Zuma jailed

By Mogomotsi Magome and Andrew Meldrum | Associated Press JOHANNESBURG — The death toll from rioting in South Africa rose to 45 on Tuesday, including 10 people trampled to death during looting at a mall, as police and the military fired stun grenades and rubber bullets to try to halt the unrest set off by the imprisonment last week of former President Jacob Zuma. Hundreds have been arrested in the lawlessness that has raged in poor areas of two provinces, where a community radio station was rans...

Injuries Could Derail Season For Defending NFC Champ 49ers

The injury bug that has disrupted the San Francisco 49ers’ season seems impossible to contain. The 49ers had to wait a few extra hours to confirm that 2019 Defensive Rookie of the Year Nick Bosa had a season-ending torn ACL and were still waiting to hear about the status of fellow starting defensive lineman Solomon Thomas. An MRI truck expected to meet them at their hotel in West Virginia broke down, leading to the delay. The broken-down truck, however, is the least of coach Kyle Shanahan’s conc...

What it's like to drive on empty highways and through a seemingly deserted New York City during the coronavirus pandemic

The coronavirus pandemic and the shutdowns of entire states and cities has eliminated traffic from highways and congestion from streets. I had heard stories of swift runs through New York and New Jersey territory formerly jammed with traffic 24/7. After a few weeks of legends and rumors, I decided to see for myself what was happening out there. What was out there was speed and lots of it. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Since the middle of March, I'd been staying close to ...

Canucks’ Top-20 Goal Scorers All-Time

Over the years the Vancouver Canucks have had a plethora of talented goal scorers grace the ice at Rogers Arena and the Pacific Coliseum. The top-20 goal scorers span four eras of hockey from Andre Boudrias, Stan Smyl, the West Coast Express and of course the Sedins. They all created legacies that will stand the test of time, etching their names in the history books with many exciting moments that every Canucks fan remembers even if they weren’t there to witness them. So with that said, here are...

Will the economy go back to “normal”

I think some things will go back to normal faster than others. I don’t think that’s a very profound statement. Backyard barbecues are going to be more popular than attending a concert at the Meadowlands or Madison Square Garden. Obviously. Many meetings that used to take place in person will now move over to Zoom, because we’ve all gotten accustomed to that. People will still want to meet in person and n...The post Will the economy go back to “normal” appeared first on The Reformed Broker. ...

John MacLean: How He Became a Devils Legend

John MacLean became a club legend during his New Jersey Devils career, which included two Stanley Cups — one as a player and one as an assistant coach.

New Jersey’s Train Stations Are Turning Into Gambling Hubs for New Yorkers

Julio Carrasco, general manager of a sports bar near the train station in Hoboken, New Jersey, has welcomed a new sort of clientele in the past few months.

Darnold Leads Jets To Third Straight Win, 34-3 Over Raiders

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Jamal Adams and the New York Jets heard all the rowdy Raiders fans during pregame warmups, booing them and acting as if they were in Oakland. Then the Jets silenced them quickly with a dominant home victory. Sam Darnold threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score, leading the Jets past the Raiders 34-3 on Sunday for their first three-game winning streak in over two years. “I’m not going to lie to you, when we came on to the field, we felt disrespected,” Adam...

Golden Tate posts Catch of the Year candidate with levitating one-handed grab

Odell Beckham Jr. might be gone, but that doesn't mean the New York Giants wide receiver corps has stopped making acrobatic, one-handed catches against the Dallas Cowboys. Golden Tate, Beckham's replacement at the Meadowlands, logged his own jaw-dropping grab on Monday against the Cowboys. Early in the second quarter, Tate basically levitated in the air to haul in a Daniel Jones pass with one hand and convert on third-and-14.

Daddy’s Hangout 2019 Week 7 NFL Predictions

Welcome to Week 7 of the NFL season. For the second consecutive week, I’m leaving with a losing record. My Week 5 record was 4-5, which dipped my overall mark to 25-25. My winning percentage went from 51.2 down to 50%. Maybe it’s time to get off the Buccaneers bandwagon as they fell to the Carolina Panthers. Jameis Winston tossed 5 INTs and he also lost one fumble. Speaking of bandwagons, the Cleveland Browns failed me again as they lost to the Seahawks at home. Baker Mayfield tossed three mor...

Rangers 1994 Stanley Cup Win Has Lasted a Lifetime

“The wait is over. The New York Rangers are Stanley Cup champions and this one will last a lifetime.” Never has a phrase spoken by a broadcaster been more poetic. Those words were uttered by Rangers announcer Sam Rosen on June 14 after the team won Game 7 to capture the 1994 Stanley Cup. It best describes the emotions inside Madison Square Garden and by long-suffering Ranger fans who had witnessed a lifetime of disappointment with each playoff exit. It’s hard to imagine that 25 years have passed...

Best roadside lookouts in the US

Road trips are about a great many things. Cool playlists of the best song about every state. Excuses to eat more fast food in a week than you have since 2014. Gas station bathrooms. But they’re also about breaking up the monotony of the open road with a rest at a scenic lookout over something you’ve never seen before. It could be a mountain range, sprawling desert, or sweeping view of a modern city, but there’s something about scenic viewpoints that make us want to take a few minutes and appr...

One for the Ages: Tom Barrasso’s 1983-84 NHL Season

The 1983-84 Buffalo Sabres belonged to Scotty Bowman. The winningest coach in NHL history – and arguably the all-time greatest hockey coach at any level – was also the team’s GM and had his fingerprints all over that team. From pulling off some of the bigger trades in Buffalo history, to maintaining longtime veterans, to drafting a core of young guns, the 1980s in retrospect were more of a tumultuous time in Sabres history. Bowman’s era of the team possessed a tremendous amount of talent and com...
