December 30th

Because it's been a while since any of us have posted anything, mainly due to us enjoying all of our holiday presents, I decided I'd break our silence instead of watching Frasier re-runs. It's December 30th, which means two things. First, we're only a day away from My Morning Jacket's concert at Madison Square Garden, which you all will get amazing coverage of. And two, it's the late Lester Patrick's birthday. Born in 1883, Lester was my fifth favorite Canadian hockey coach. Inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1947, Lester was a fantastic player and a great Canadian icon. He's such an inspiration to so many, he even got a trophy named after him!

So in case you haven't caught on yet, Lester was just an excuse to get a post up, even if that trophy is something else. It is, however, a good enough segue into good things that come out of Canada. One of my favorite bands, which happens to be from Canada, is Arcade Fire. Because you've heard all of their songs, or at least should have, here's one you probably haven't heard that's taken from their 7" with LCD Soundsystem. It's French, it's upbeat, and I like it.
