Roger Waters Teases New Album
Pink Floyd veteran Roger Waters is gearing up to release a new album and set to tour in support of it. He premiered his brand-new single, ‘Smell The Roses’ today, which can be streamed free on the internet. Water’s new solo album “Is This The Life We Really Want” releases June 2nd on Columbia Records. A press release for the project describes it as an “unflinching commentary on the modern world and uncertain times,” that serves “as a natural successor to classic Pink Floyd albums such as ‘Animals’ and ‘The Wall.’” This is the singer’s first album of new material since 1992’s “Amused To Death". Waters tapped Nigel Godrich (known for his work with Radiohead) to produce. Some of the song titles on the new album are ‘Broken Bones’, ‘The Last Refuge’, and ‘Oceans Apart’. The Waters tour opens May 26th in Kansas City, Missouri at the Sprint Center.

Comedian Charlie Murphy Passes away at 59
Well-loved American comedian, writer and actor Charlie Murphy passed away on April 12th, losing his battle with leukemia at the age of 59. Murphy kept his illness secret, even from his co-stars on the Starz show “Power”, in which Murphy plays a prison guard. Murphy, brother of comedian and actor Eddie Murphy, appeared in several minor movie roles until he appeared in “CB4”, where he played the movie’s antagonist. He appeared in over two dozen films. He really stepped out from his brother’s shadow as a regular on Chappelle’s Show. He had a regular feature on the show called “Charlie Murphy’s True Hollywood Stories”, which produced the legendary “Rick James” and “Prince” sketches.

Sports Tickets

Fall and winter means sports and more sports. Perennial favorites like Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals are fun to watch in the Eastern Conference, while Western Conference darlings include The Dallas Stars and St Louis Blues. For the NBA season kick off, the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers are still something to see.

 

Nashville Sweeps Top-Seeded Chicago
In a colossal upset, the Nashville Predators completed a shocking upset sweep of the top-seeded Chicago Blackhawks. The high-scoring Blackhawks hit a brick wall against Predators goalie Pekka Rinne, who logged shutouts in games one and two, and who gave up just 3 goals after that. The Blackhawks also had difficulty dealing with the speed of the Predators. The sweep marks the first time in NHL history that a No. 1 seed has been swept by a No. 8 seed. Nashville moves on to the second round to face the winner of the St.Louis-Minnesota series. Nashville is enjoying a bit of revenge, as Chicago knocked them out of the playoffs in 2010 and 2015. The Blackhawks tried everything they could, switching up lines, adding Russian Michal Kempny to the playoff lineup, dressing seven defensemen, but it didn’t matter. Nashville simply outplayed the more talented Chicago team.

Bulls Take 2-0 Lead Against First-Seeded Celtics
After limping into the last seed of the NBA playoffs, the Chicago Bulls have stunned the basketball nation by taking the first two games of the series from the Eastern first place finishers the Boston Celtics. The shock is not just the wins, but with the extent the Bulls are dominating play. Jimmy Butler is grabbing every rebound while averaging 26 points, and Rondo looks like the Rondo of old. At the beginning of the year the team was bickering and fighting amongst themselves. Rajon Rondo was suspended for a game by the team. He was also fined, along with Dwayne Wade and Jimmy Butler. Rondo wasn’t even in the regular rotation the whole year. He’s got it together now though, just missing a triple-double in Game 2 of the series while containing the Celtic’s biggest threat, Isaiah Thomas. Home court advantage shifts to Chicago as the series heads there for Game 3.

Toronto Takes Lead In Series Against Washingon
The Toronto Maple Leafs came from behind to beat the Washington Capitals 4-3 in overtime, in what was basically an exact repeat of game 2. Toronto leads the series 2 games to 1. The young Toronto team has made the Capitals look slow, with much of the series being played in the Capital’s defensive side of the ice. Perhaps Toronto learned from the Pittsburgh Penguins last year, who brought up some young fast players from the minors who the Capitals simply couldn’t keep up with. Caps fans are nervous, living year after year with the “curse” of choking in the playoffs. Easily the superior team on paper, the Capitals have only made it to one Stanley Cup final, the 1998 series against the Steve Yzerman-led Detroit Redwings, who swept the series in four straight. Caps fans are nervous, but Vegas still has the Capitals as 6-1 odds to win the Stanley Cup. (The odds for the Penguins to win the cup are 7-2).
