From Daily Mail...
Julian de Guzman has opened the door for Tottenham to clinch his signature at the end of the season.There are several reasons I would love this move. I love supporting Canadian players abroad. It's important for our national team for it's players to have success overseas. Also, Spurs are my team. And when I first started really paying attention to the Premier League in 2005, it was Canadian Paul Stalteri's move to Tottenham which made me a fan of the club. And most importantly De Guzman is a fantastic defensive midfielder who can also crack the ball in from long range if he wants to. This is huge since I can't stand stupid Wilson Palacios who, had he caught any part of C. Ronaldo on Saturday after his two footed studs up attempted tackle, would have been sent off within 10 minutes of the game starting. Like Mascherano this year, Palacios only seems to be able to hack people down and he is a liability to be sent off whenever he's on the field. The sooner Spurs get rid of Palacios (and Jenas), the better.
The 28-year-old has been strongly linked with a move to White Hart Lane after earning rave reviews for Deportivo La Coruna.

It would seem that the recent verdict against the Pirate Bay's administrators has produced a bit of snarky reaction from the more revolutionarily-inclined people of interwebland. I am Jack's total lack of surprise.
Pirate Bay Prosecution Law Firm Under AttackWritten by Ernesto on April 26, 2009
During the Pirate Bay trial Monique Wadsted represented several major movie studios and called for a “very significant” prison sentence for the defendants. This didn’t go down particularly well with some Pirate Bay supporters and now, in a retaliatory move, a few of them have now taken down her law firm’s website. Keep reading....
If it wasn't for the fact that I'm at work (and hence supposed to be working rather than trawling the vast empty void of the intertubes in search of distraction) I think I would be ranting...right...about...here. Oh well...it'll have to wait untill later. When I'm all liquored up.
Dun duda dun dun dada dun! NEWS UPDATE!!!!!
Shit, this gets better and better: The Pirate Bay has now registered its new IPs to movie and music industry lawyers. Tee hee:
Pirate Bay IP Addresses Assigned to Prosecution LawyersWritten by Ernesto on April 26, 2009
The Pirate Bay recently got a new range of IPs and to everyone’s surprise they are now linked to several movie and music industry lawyers involved in the TPB trial. According to the Pirate Bay’s Wikipedia entry the change was due to a hostile takeover, but most people know better. Keep Reading

for making Manitobans look like a bunch of hicks. Look at that major highway! It's two dog sleds wide! Now they can't go down to the states to upgrade to VCR Technology or watch real football teams. "Hey, Billy-Ray, looks like we won't be able to get our 4x4 to the moose hunt and hump competition. Shucks!"

First of all, of all the places you would go to suntan, why choose a baseball game outfield? I mean, do you not know that people are hitting coma inducing objects at you? Second, when you hear the crowd perk up after a giant cracking noise, you would think that would induce some kind of attention and maybe cause you to look up.

A third period moment in last nights catastrophic Oilers 5-3 loss to the Ducks was all too appropriate and all too unfortunate. The Oilers fans still boo Chris Pronger and good on them for doing so. But when Dustin Penner booted a pass straight to Pronger, it would probably have been impossible to separate the booing directed at the Ducks' defensman or the Oilers sloppy, lazy, apathetic forward. It was a combination boo.
And to think that there are 3 years remaining in which Penner gets paid $4.25 Mil per season is almost criminal. I guess the bad call in signing Penner, in hindsight, highlights another one in last nights game when, 4-1 down, the Oilers scored twice in the last 5 minutes and with over two minutes left to play and all the momentum, MacTavish called for a stick measurement on Teemu Selanne. So, basically needing the win to keep pace in the playoff race and with no necessary need for a power play, this poor judgment call may have simultaneously killed the Oilers' playoff hopes and MacTavish's job. Dan Barne's article is appropriately titled Dumb Call. Needless to say, the stick was legal.
And so it is, optimism drains from various gaping pores in the manifestation of my hope.
