Goalie Announcements (Jan 13)

It's an early start this morning, so it could be a bit of a rushed post today, but let's see how it goes, shall we? Wes is vying for back-to-back Mover & Shaker nods and he carries a 2-point lead and plenty of potential for more points today, leading both Stuart and Dale C., their teams both at 30 points this week.  Three more teams have an outside shot at 27 points: Steve, Jesse and Eric [Author: Clayton Corley]

Goalie Announcements (Jan 10)

Even with a limited amount of games last night, Wes' team was still able to find some points, as his team is riding one hell of a hot streak at the moment.  His team is now up to 22 points through three nights of action and 4 points clear of Jesse's team in the weekly rankings.  12 teams have made it into double-digits this week, as the scoring rate has still been pretty decent through [Author: Clayton Corley]

Wild Women, Forty Pricks, and Western Noir

None Film critic Manny Farber, in typical inimitable style, summarized much of Samuel Fuller's film oeuvre through simultaneous praise and critique in the following observation: "What's good about his films is lovable; the daring, uninhibited use of semidocumentary techniques that save the movie from Fuller's mind, an unthinking morass at best" (Negative Space: Manny Farber on the Movies (New York: De Capo Press, 1998, 132). Put slightly more generously, Fuller's film style often trumps the plo...

Goalie Announcements (Jan 9)

It's going to be a quiet night tonight, as there are only three games on Wednesday, but that's okay.  We're picking up points at a fairly reasonable pace and that's despite seeing more and more goalies, not selected in the pool, getting starts these days and tonight will be no different. Wes' team continues rack up the points, as his team is already up to 18 points this week, looking for [Author: Clayton Corley]

Goalie Announcements (Jan 8)

Coming off a Mover & Shaker week, Wes' team is running white-hot these days, already posting 9 points on Monday night and ready to assault the top three here soon, if his team keeps up its pace.  Monday was also a pretty light night in the NHL, so it should come as no surprise that seven teams didn't post a single point, so the Basement Dweller race is alive and well too.  Thankfully, we've [Author: Clayton Corley]

Revealed: The Top 10 Custom Motorcycles of 2018

What a year it’s been for the custom scene. With so many great bikes crossing our radar, it’s almost impossible to pick out any personal favorites. So it’s just as well that our annual Bike Of The Year roundup is purely data driven. It’s based on page views, incoming links, and the number of social media shares. As always, it’s also weighted according to how long ago the bike was featured. A couple of interesting points to note: If we weren’t dealing with customs here, two factory bikes wou...

This Week in Photography Books: Paris Visone

  I haven’t spent much time in Massachusetts. It’s true. Sure, I went there once or twice as a kid. Saw the Faneuil Hall. Probably ate some clam chowder. Went to a Red Sox game. But that was so long ago I barely remember it. There’s lots of red brick in Boston, right? I visited Northampton a few times when my wife was in graduate school, but even that was 20 years ago. And Northampton is its own little enclave, like Los Alamos in New Mexico. Most of what I know of Massachusetts comes from popula...

The 30 Best New Musical Artists of 2018

Amnesia Scanner Amnesia Scanner is the experimental electronic duo of Ville Haimala and Martti Kalliala. Created in late 2013, the group is not exactly new, but they have remained somewhat unrecognizable and wholly inaccessible until this year. As they used to refuse interviews and released several unannounced, unexplained EP's and mixtapes, Amnesia Scanner floated around as illegible codes for devoted listeners to decipher. Every track title was prefaced by "AS", and each music video reg...

Lowborn ‘Reckless’

I don’t know how many times I hear that rock is dead. It’s becoming a meme. Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine recently said rock music is nowhere which outraged Slipknot singer Corey Taylor who said, ” Tell that schmuck to go back to The F%&$ ‘Voice’.”   I think rock is seeing a facelift.  Lead singer Wes Lauterbach who fronts the rock act Lowborn tells Kings “I think rock is in two states right now, older rock which has put in its time and built its fan base, and modern rock, which will eventually ...

Now, ‘vintage-inspired’ buckets are everywhere—but not all of them actually deliver the goods. Some sacrifice safety, fitment or comfort in pursuit of style; the AGV X3000 doesn’t. The $4...

Trail Mix – Wes Charlton

The spotlight found Virginia-born singer/songwriter Wes Charlton early. Barely a twenty-something, Charlton’s debut solo record, 2005’s American Bittersweet, led to licensing agreements with film and television companies and his music spread to the masses. A move to Nashville followed and Charlton made his mark in the Music City before Virginia called him back home. Now a dad – Wes and his wife have three kids – Charlton returns with third long player, Morning Stars. Charlton extends his streak...

Urban Assault Machine: Fuller Moto’s KTM Duke 690

What’s your perfect urban runabout? When Bryan Fuller of Fuller Moto wanted something light and quick for navigating the streets of downtown Atlanta, Georgia, he picked the KTM Duke 690. At only 330 lbs dry with compact proportions, and powered by a punchy single-cylinder motor that’s good for 70 hp and 69.8 Nm, it’s an ideal choice. And when Bryan found a brand new 2013 Duke at a good price at the local KTM dealer, he couldn’t resist. “Atlanta has lots of tight, old narrow streets with pl...

PC Gamer’s Wes Fenlon just changed my life (and improved my K/D ratio)

PC Gamer journalist Wes Fenlon just changed my life It’s not often that a story in a gaming publication has such a profound impact on one’s life. Today, though, I found that story. I owe a sincere debt of gratitude to Wes Fenlon, and the publication that employs him, PC Gamer. For both, today, improved my K/D ratio dramatically, if only by curing my own stupidity — at least in this regard. For some — assuming there are others like Wes and I — we game in much the same way as we type. That is to s...
