100 Years of Habs Glory

Posted by Jen on Wednesday, 2 December, 2009

Friday, December 4th will be the 100th anniversary of the Montreal Canadiens as a hockey team. An incredible feat, for sure.

I’m a Toronto Maple Leafs fan, but I have the deepest respect for the Habs due to their history. They have 24 Stanley Cup banners hanging in the rafters, in addition to the 15 retired jerseys. They had some of the greatest players ever to step foot on the ice – Maurice ‘Rocket’ Richard, Jean Beliveau, Guy Lafleur, Ken Dryden, Jacques Plante, Bernard ‘Boom Boom’ Geoffrion… the list goes on!

In honour of their centennial, I made a little tribute video.

(I’m getting addicted to making montage videos, haha.)

Mabel Normand and Charlie Chaplin – Mabel at the Wheel

Posted by Jen on Tuesday, 24 November, 2009

I edited Mabel and Charlie’s short “Mabel at the Wheel” to the song “Hell on Wheels” by Old Money. I think it turned out fairly well!

No copyright infringement intended. The movie “Mabel at the Wheel” is in the public domain and can be downloaded in its entirety from archive.org.

I got the song from this super awesome video.

Leafs vs Senators – 27 November

Posted by Jen on Friday, 28 November, 2008

Quite a game last night, though I would’ve thought there would be more goals. Both goals were scored in the first period and the game ended in a shootout. Both goalies made some great saves, but in the end Ottawa won.

I don’t quite understand Ron Wilson’s choices for shooters in the shootout. Nikolai Kulemin and Lee Stempniak? (I don’t know who the third one would’ve been, I missed that.) Sure Kulemin got the goal earlier in the game, but why Stempniak? Especially against Ottawa’s big guns – Jason Spezza, Dany Heatley, and Daniel Alfredsson.

By the way, those new third jerseys for Ottawa? Ugly. But they seem to be bringing them some luck in the two games they’ve worn them so far.

Missed the game? Here are the highlights:

Bonjour!

Posted by Jen on Wednesday, 26 November, 2008

Wow, I have not updated in nearly a year, yet my blog stats say that I continue getting hits! Thanks to everyone who’s been popping by!

I haven’t been around much due to personal issues. That’s the short explanation. The long explanation is.. long.

I’ll continue posting every so often. Thanks again to everyone’s who has stopped by and commented. :)

Cheers!

Mats Sundin in the Nutcracker (2)

Posted by Jen on Thursday, 13 December, 2007

I had a video last time, and today I have a picture of Mats in his Cannon Doll costume for his appearance in the National Ballet of Canada’s performance of The Nutcracker.

He looks so happy, doesn’t he?

Mats Sundin in the Nutcracker

Posted by Jen on Sunday, 9 December, 2007

On Friday the 7th, Leafs captain Mats Sundin took to the stage for charity.

(Video’s not very good quality since someone filmed their tv, but it’s still amusing to watch.)

NaNoWriMo

Posted by Jen on Sunday, 2 December, 2007

I took the month of November off so I could concentrate on NaNoWriMo. I got stuck at one point, so I started a new story just for the sake of writing.

My final word count?

100,046!

I’m not finished the novel at all, but I plan on doing so.
