Song of the Week: She Said, She Said

Readers of this blog will know that I'm a huge Beatles fan, so it's no surprise that I'm loving the new SiriusXM Beatles channel. Along with Beatles songs and songs from the former Beatles' solo careers, they also play people who influenced the band and musicians doing covers of Beatles tunes. This week's song is one of those:  Gov't Mule playing "She Said, She Said". It's a pretty good interpretation of the song.

2017 Stanley Cup Champions Pittsburgh Penguins


The Pittsburgh Penguins have just become the first team in nearly 20 years to win back-to-back Cups. It wasn't an easy road, having to face teams with two of the three best records in the regular season (the Penguins were #2) and tons of injuries to key players. The Penguins have now played 39 playoff games over the past two years; the most ever by any team in any sport over a two year period.

Congrats to the Western Conference champion Nashville Predators. Nobody expected them to make it this far, but it shows how a great defense and a hot goalie can take you far in the playoffs.

MST3k Friday: Hercules

I'm still working my way through the new season of Mystery Science Theatre and I still love it. When I saw they did a Hercules movie I got so excited because they did a great job with the three Hercules movies in the original run. This movie, The Loves of Hercules, stars Jayne Mansfield and her husband Mickey Hargitay. It was funny and well done like the others. One of the things I've noticed about this season of MST3k is each episode has one riff that calls back to a famous riff from the original run.

I couldn't find a clip online of The Loves of Hercules, but here's a clip from one of the first Hercules movies.

"Look, I don't need the golden fleece. You keep it."
