Link 7 Jan A World of Sound - Aruna D'Souza      »

I’d been trying to remember one of the best contemporary art experiences I’d ever had. It was at the MoMA PS1 in Queens. A combination of an eery studio tour by Janet Cardiff which led into an eerier installation in the basement bathroom called “Creep in the Bathroom” by Jocelyn Shipley . The installation felt a bit unhygienic, but man oh man was it creepy. So good. And yes yes, it played with my senses and preconceptions of space.

From “A World of Sound” by Aruna D’Souza:

"In The PS. 1 Walk (2001), commissioned by the museum for this exhibition, [Janet] Cardiff leads you away from the galleries-as is typical of her museum walks-and instead guides you through the hidden spaces of the institution, back stairwells, underground passages, rooms and studios not usually open to the public. In the 12-minute tour, she intersperses precise directions (turn right here, go up these stairs) with a more poetic, and slightly threatening, narrative; at certain points you feel vulnerable, as when she asks you to sit in a dim and smelly stairwell and look at the wall for a few moments. There is a frisson involved in pushing your way through doors marked "DO NOT OPEN," and when you hear the narrator whisper in your ear, "it’s amazing that one can still find places to hide in a place like this," you cannot help but agree. At one stage, you are led into a bathroom that is currently home to an eerie installation by Jocelyn Shipley. Gothic horror-movie music swells. And when Cardiff says to you, "Let’s get out of here, it’s sort of creepy," it is not quite clear if that creepy quality is the product of the installation itself
or of the mood of suspense produced by her narrative.”

Text 11 Nov Stanley Cup Championships in Perspective (2013 Edition)

Note: 2013 edition. The Chicago Blackhawks are charging up the charts, having displaced the Colorado Avalanche for #3 in the Modern Era and #8 in the Post-6 Era. I wish it were the Bruins, but it is what it is.

Preamble: Having a list of champions in sports leagues that stretch back for decades is a little misleading, especially hockey with its decades of “Original Six” teams playing each other. The Montreal Canadiens’ 24 championships, however hallowed, should be put in perspective. To paint a better picture I’ve created two tables: one of champions in an unofficial “Modern Era” dating back to 1993; a second of champions dating back to the first Stanley Cup finals of the Expansion (post-Original Six) era in 1968 (though even this is not totally fair given how outmatched the expansion teams were at first).

It also gave me an opportunity to highlight the Devils’ championships, as it’s become increasingly difficult to win multiple championships in a short period of time. Fill those seats, New Jersey. It’s an embarrassment.

Apologies if it’s hard to read, no patience for table formatting.
Teams are ranked first by number of Cup wins and then by most recent.
