So I usually post about hockey and funny things here. I am especially likely to reblog something if a Disney crossover is involved. I like random questions and comments and people saying hi, so don't be shy; feel free to send me an ask doing any of those things if you are so inclined.

Uh, other riveting facts - I live in Chicago, I like coffee and have an unhealthy devotion to home renovation and cooking shows.

Do you ever see something someone posted, and you’re just like NO YOU ARE WRONG but you think to yourself, “This isn’t the hill I want to die on” so you have to let it go?

4/22/14: Quenneville on Toews and Kane (X)

darthtulip:         

That was my first association reading it too and I don’t watch OUAT either. You basically made them go cold turkey, Q, and at least Swan Queen is like - not feeling murderous at each other anymore? When mostly what we’re getting is islands in the stream.

Kane and Toews were once inseparable for Quenneville. During the Blackhawks’ 2009-10 Stanley Cup season, Kane and Toews shared the ice for 678:42 in 5-on-5 situations, according to stats.hockeyanalysis.com. The next season they were together for 722:47. 

Over the last couple seasons, Quenneville’s mentality has changed. He’s opted to split them up. Last season, they shared the ice for just 99:41 in 5-on-5 situations. This season, their shared ice time has been 212:53. (x)

This is truly playoff hockey when rivals play in one gif. 
Carcillo got hit high and the refs missed it. Then he made an amazing play while on the ice and instead they called a hook. He was utterly pissed. He came out of the box, scored and did this. Such an awesome sequence of playoff hockey.

Funny enough, epistolary stories are totally my jam, I did at least semi-epistolary ones for 2 straight Yuletides. This one gets some excerpts of their correspondence, and now I have the great urge to add much more in.

We really need epistolary stories in this fandom. It is a strong feeling that I have. Think of the “wish you were here! no, really, you have no idea how much I WISH YOU WERE HEREEEEE why don’t you SEE” and “remember all those Cups we won? wasn’t that great?” postcards of extreme patheticness and tragedy you could have sent.

Good stuff coming up!

I got some awesome responses to my post asking what people were up to in Kane/Toews fandom, so I wanted to go through and list it all out. (PS: If you asked me not to post your response, I am still sending out my responses to those. Not ignoring you, I promise. It’s just LOTS of you are working on things as it turns out and I APPROVE.)

Miscellaneous happy things:

deformed-globule said: That article (from today I think) which said that Kaner and Tazer ‘hooked up early’. How is this real life I don’t even know.

- The beat/NHL writers can be pretty good to us, it’s true. Maybe once you hit that 1 a.m. deadline you’re just like, “I know how this reads, YOLO!” and submit to your editor. 

1whiskers said: I decided what the hawks really needed to put them over the edge was a greater show of commitment from me….

Blackhawks pedi! - Your dedication is bearing fruit. I hope you understand that if we make it out of this round, you are required to maintain this. 

elqiao said: look, I’m so excited about this talking penis idea, I can’t even express it

- I will endeavor to be worthy of your excitement. I went for it, I’m not going to lie to you. I really, really committed to my premise. I put a ring on my premise.

llanoor said: When you said there was crackfic coming up from you, never could I have imagined it was PKane’s talking penis. So…good on you, I guess?!

- Uh, there is no ‘I guess’ about it, tyvm. If you don’t like Tim the talking penis by the end of my 10K+ of it, you should proceed with defriending me immediately, because it’s not gonna get any better than that in these parts.

Protip: If you scroll down so that you just see his forehead at the top of your browser, you can pretend that the mullet isn’t actually happening. /helpful

Yes, Kaner, please talk to me all about growing up together with Tazer and how easy he is to play with and how you guys think about the game the same way. A+ video here, guys. 

smoulderandbraids:

because who doesn’t need a super slow-mo vid of pkane highlights set to SWAN LAKE

x

(all credit for the find to feelsfictional)

smoulderandbraids#now tumblr  #let me paint you a picture  #pkane highlight vid  #set to ‘timber’  #pkane taunting goalies  #’you better move you better dance’  #’i’ll be the one you won’t forget’  #etc.  #feelsfictional and i were talking  #HOW DOES A PKANE TIMBER HIGHLIGHT VID NOT EXIST  #we’re ready to resort to bribery here  #please please someone take up this noble quest  #if i could vid  #i would vid  #alternatively if anyone has any awesome clip suggestions that should totally be in it  #please please send them!  #patrick kane  #the best part of the swan lake vid is how the last half is not hockey at all  #just slo-mo close ups on his horrible celly faces 

The hilarious thing is that I thought it was going to be a fan-made vid of P Kane to Swan Lake and I was all, alright, not what I would have necessarily thought of, but I understand you and your feelings, and then it turned out to be an official NHL made vid and I’m not sure if that makes it better or worse. (Better. It makes it better, I’ve just decided.)

Also, yes, someone should make that Timber vid. I’ve mentally vidded it a couple of times myself, so we are all clearly on the same fannish wavelengths here. People should go send smoulderandbraids their clips ideas!

Tumblr?

A .gif query - there were two moments of the Blackhawks game last night that I haven’t seen floating around these parts. In the CSN broadcast, Kaner made a particularly unattractive pufferfish face type thing, complete with strange tongue action while Johnny was looking at him, and I wanted to stare at it some more and think about how Johnny’s life is really very difficult.

Also, after the game, the on-ice interview was with Captain Smiley and he was all REAL GOOD TO BE HOME WITH THIS GREAT CROWD IN CHICAGO and looking ridiculous and pleased with the world and it was a v. good look for him.

If you have seen these pls to direct me toward them. (Or they would be valuable um, to the fandom, were someone inclined to go make them. I am useless, because I totally said to myself omg pufferfish, note the time! Which I did! Then I forgot. BUT THE SECOND ONE WAS TOTALLY IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE GAME. :D :D :D :D ?)

4/21/14 Blues @ Blackhawks, Game 3: Jonathan Toews is a little relieved after Marcus Kruger scores to make it 2-0 Hawks in the waning seconds of the game.

This…is kind of incredibly sweet to me.
