  1. Rough game, but at least Boeser isn't being held back by Horvat's absence.

     

    Also, I had the weirdest dream about Horvat. In the dream, the Canucks fell out of the playoff race on the last day of the season at the Oilers' hands, and the Sedins were directly involved in every goal against. Horvat then blew up at the team in a players meeting, tears and all, and directly called out Henrik.

     

    Then the dream cut to Horvat in a parked black SUV, cussing out people over the phone. For some reason, I was part of the team, but was wearing a boot for a foot injury. I was about to call Horvat to invite him to an escape room, but I woke up at that moment.

  2. Used a soldering iron for the first time yesterday. My wireless mouse is working again and I managed not to burn the house down. #SmallVictories

      I reattached the black and red wires leading from the batteries to the  circuit board. 

       

      Nothing much, but then again, I'm someone who dropped out of a welding course two weeks into it because I handled every tool like a hand grenade.

      Not usually a good sign when you rip the pin out a throw a perfectly good torch across the room...

  3. [PGT] St. Louis Blues vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Here's a gif to summarize this loss:
  4. What an episode from Dragon Ball Super! Finally, a payoff that did something fresh and reignited that feeling of watching DBZ in my childhood

      It's all of you dumbasses that keep feeding these companies cash after already initially buying their games that are at fault.

       

      Let them cry about how much games cost to make.  They can do what movie companies do and team up with other companies if they don't want to risk losing their rear ends if their game fails.

  6. This is based off of a Gordon Ramsay recipe I found on YouTube. However, the ingredients I used here should be easy enough to find in any major grocery chain in BC (Save-On-Foods, Safeway, Superstore, Walmart, etc.) Seriously, what store sells double or heavy cream here? Panna Cotta (4 servings): 6 to 7 g of gelatin (typically available in leaf or powdered form) 1/3 cup cold water 1 2/3 cup whipping cream (33%) 100 g caster sugar 1/4 cup hot espresso coffee (or 1.5 tbsp instant coffee dissolved in 1/4 cup boiling hot water) 1 tsp vanilla extract Ganache: Just under 1/2 cup whipping cream 50 g dark chocolate (~70%) 1 tbsp salted butter or margarine Honey to taste in a bowl, stir the gelatin into the cold water and set it aside until later. Chill 4 ramekins (each should hold ~175 mL ) in the fridge In a small saucepan, stir together the cream, sugar, coffee, and vanilla until the sugar dissolves, then allow mix to reach a simmer. Remove the saucepan from the heat before boiling occurs and allow it to cool for a few minutes. During this wait, chop up the chocolate finely and place it in a ceramic or Pyrex bowl larger that the saucepan. Empty the soaked gelatin into the saucepan and stir until fully dissolved. Rinse your ramekins in cold water without drying them, then place the ramekins on a level tray and put it in the fridge. Pour your cream mix through a coffee strainer into a jug or large measuring cup, then fill up your ramekins evenly. Allow to set for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight. Wash out the saucepan, pour in the cream for the ganache, and bring to a simmer. Immediately pour it into the bowl of chocolate, add the butter or margarine, and whisk until fully melted down. If ingredients aren't fully combining, wash the saucepan and add an inch of hot water, then set up the bowl and saucepan as a bain-marie with the heat set to low. Once the ingredients are thoroughly combined, mix in honey to taste and refrigerate. Once the panna cotta is set, take out the ramekins and place them in a bath of boiling hot water for 5-10 seconds, taking care not to fill the bath too high. This is meant to shock the panna cotta enough for it to fall out. If needed, use a small knife to trim around the panna cotta to get it off the surface of the ramekin. Place a saucer on each ramekin, flip both saucer and ramekin over together, and lightly shake the ramekin until the panna cotta slips out. Take out the ganache and whisk until it reaches a syrup-like thickness. If needed, warm up the mixture by placing the bowl in the water bath for a minute. To decorate, use a spoon or knife to scoop out some of the center of each panna cotta, creating a pit about a 1/2 inch deep. Use the ganache to fill the pit and dress the panna cotta any way you like before serving.
  7. Versace rips off old Canucks logo?

    Hopefully I never get this gifted to me by anyone, or they're really going to see Versace on the floor
  8. Preseason GDT/PGT LA Kings Vs Canucks |Sept 23| 12:30AM | SN

    On a separate note, thank goodness we're not dealing with a 4:30 am puck drop this time
  9. Had a bison burger for the first time yesterday at Sharkey's. Very tasty, like a leaner version of ground lamb, as opposed to the beef flavor I was expecting, and it paired really well with the whiskey BBQ sauce.

     

    10/10 would eat again

      Bison's awesome

       

      Kangaroo burgers are exotic :3

  10. So I finally got around to watching Spider-Man Homecoming, and I was pleasantly surprised. Tom Holland did a great job portraying both Peter Parker and Spider-Man, and the writing and directing did a pretty good job of honouring the comic books while bringing new concepts to the table. Overall, it's equally as good as the first movie from the Sam Raimi trilogy.

     

    Also, that twist regarding the Vulture was beautiful. Had me doing this the whole scene: 306f4c6bc76bb57353d349af5c4964cbc09305c9f5029d319443922b8b3b8f07.jpg.ebe22a569dd48ecae22e27647f076b9f.jpg

      Saw the movie only a couple days ago and I managed to avoid being spoiled. The scene worked great.

      Like how they added the Shocker in it as well.

  11. [Signing] Wild re-sign Nino Niederreiter

    That's a nice deal for Minnesota, though. Willie would even say it's "real good"
  12. It's hard getting through work right now, and I'm really regretting my inability to make new friends. Maybe this news would be easier to handle if I had one friend that felt as sad as I do about it. It hurts not to be able to see the band perform live even once during my life, and their tour was coming to Vancouver this year. I hope fans who did get that opportunity cherish it forever.
  13. NHL 18 Thread

    Sometimes I wish I could win the next big national lottery and simply buy my way into full control over the NHL series so I could delay the next edition for one full year and enforce the sweeping changes to the franchise we all want to see.
  14. [Rumour] Scandella on the way out?

    Sounds quite Scandell-ous
