No Soup For You!!!

La Bonne Soup Cafe was put up for sale this afternoon after failing a health inspection. La Bonne is well-known in Sacramento for its long "Soup Nazi" lines and incredible food - they were even voted as the best French Onion Soup in the world. The store was a one man show.

Another Big Sky referee defining moment. The ref was almost close enough to be humping the EWU tight-end's leg, but wouldn't pull the hankie out of his pants. Must have been enjoying the scene in front of him and it was too hard for him call the penalty.

Decent Bee Article

As you know, I often criticize the Sac Bee for what I perceive to be a lack of serious coverage. So, it is nice to see an article this morning despite the Hornets being in a bye week.

Hornets goals still the same Deionte Gordon's injury looks less severe than originally thought, and he should be ready for EWU.

Is the Bee Doomed?

With the growth of hyperlocal websites, free classifieds, and blogging, traditional news is hurting. However one thing will always be constant: demand for information. The Sacramento Bee has had to scale back significantly to stay afloat. Can it make it? Can the paper industry in general survive? Only time will tell.

"Eye-Patch" Underwear for "Naughty Girls"

Conservative California lawmaker Mike Duvall bragged about his extramarital affairs while sitting in front of a live microphone in Sacramento yesterday, according to the Associated Press. When not with his wife, Duvall enjoys the company of two "'naughty girl'" lobbyists who wear "'eye-patch underwear'" and enjoy being spanked.

Duvall resigned but is now claiming he hasn't been unfaithful to his wife, and that the stories were made up. Which might not be so bad if he wasn't a Family Values candidate who received a 100 percent approval rating from the conservative advocacy group Capitol Resource Institute.

If Duvall is sleeping around with lobbyists, I hope he wraps it up tight: according to the Sacramento Bee in 2007, "Sacramento County posts higher infection rates for gonorrhea and chlamydia than almost every other county in California."

KYDS: Another Replacement for KWOD

Another great replacement for KWOD is El Camino High School's student produced radio station, KYDS 91.5. They occasionally play death metal, unfortunately, but usually KYDS plays a wide variety of bands, from old standbys like Ray Charles and Led Zeppelin, to more obscure alternative acts like Mates of State, Clap Your Hands and Say Yeah (yeah!) and Sufjan Stevens. They certainly have better taste in music than I did when I was their age. The Real McCoy, anyone? Like Off Air, KYDS is commercial free, other than the occasional public service announcement, usually performed by a student, and the hilariously smarmy and over-the-top station identification by some unknown professional voice talent. "It's all KYDS. All the time," indeed. Unlike Off Air, KYDS can be pretty amateurish at times, which is charming, except when they're broadcasting nothing but dead air, which happens too often.

KYDS also rebroadcasts programming from CSU-Sacramento's student produced radio station, KSSU, which plays everything from Rancid to Alicia Keys, depending on the DJ. But how sad is it that KYDS, a high school radio station, has a stronger signal than KSSU, an AM station that cannot be heard beyond the Sac State campus?

Miss KWOD? Go "Off-Air" with Capital Public Radio

If you're only familiar with NPR from Ana Gasteyer and Molly Shannon discussing Alec Baldwin's "Schweddy Balls" on Saturday Night Live, or you think NPR only plays classical music and jazz, you may be surprised to learn that one of the best replacements for the now-gone (but not forgotten) KWOD 106.5 is a program presented by Sacramento's local NPR affiliate, Capital Public Radio, entitled "Off Air."

As the title suggests, Off Air is an online-only show, which has its advantages and disadvantages. For instance, you can't listen to it in your car, but all of the show's webcasts are always available for listening online, which means you can sit at your computer and listen to a playlist of great music, lasting an hour or more, for free with no commercials. The show is hosted by Nick Brunner, a young DJ from Illinois, who speaks with the clear enunciation and confident cadence that is typical at NPR, best exemplified by Ky Ryssdal, in my opinion; it may seem affected, even annoying at first, but this style of speaking will grow on you and become comforting and strong.

Off Air focuses on "up and coming national and local talent as well as established, critically acclaimed artists," which usually means alternative rock, although there are smatterings of electronica, dance, country and hip-hop as well (just like KWOD!). In the webcasts I've listed to, Off-Air has played music by bands as diverse as Dinosaur Jr., the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, YACHT, Peaches, Jukebox the Ghost and Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros. Off Air also frequently features in-studio guests, such as Starf**ker and Boy in Static. Whether asking insightful questions of his guests, discussing the merits of mashups with volunteer assistant Meg, delivering interesting information about the music he's playing or notifying listeners of upcoming events and shows, Brunner always comes off as informed and intelligent, but like many NPR personalities he bucks the Schweddy Balls stereotype by being funny and irreverent, too. The off-air format of Off Air allows Brunner to ignore FCC regulations regarding obscenity, for example, and on one webcast Brunner listed the insulting names fans of alternative rock could be called, such as "nerd," "dweeb" and "spaz," but then ended with an audio sample where a guy who sounds like Luis Guzman says, "a drunk, chain-smoking transvestite, passed out on a couch in Sacramento." He's like a less obnoxious Rubin! Sigh. I miss Rubin . . .

All in all, Off Air is a great show and definitely worth a listen. New shows are posted online every Thursday at 12am.

New Look Hornets

The Game #1 Preview notes that the Sac State has new Nike uniforms they will debut at UNLV, with green jerseys at home and white on the road. The new feature that I have long been partial too is excluding the players' names on the back. Omitting the names hearkens focus on team, not individuals. Think Penn State or USC. But then, to quote a Bud Light commercial, "there ain't no we either."
