Transcription of the guitar solo in this excellent version of Spain I saw posted on reddit.com/r/jazz a few months ago. Solo begins around 1:48 and was last accessed July 16, 2018.
Full pdf here. Will update as errors get noticed.
In order of my current favorite to least favorite with short description of how I feel about the film:
Haven’t yet seen Solo. Not in a huge rush. Will update list whenever I watch it or the next Skywalker saga film.
Prompted by my observation that South Korea’s National Team has 5 different players with the surname “Kim”. I wondered if there was a more common surname in the World Cup. Used this little question as an excuse to continue tinkering with R and using data from data.world
During my last recreational league hockey season, my captain had me play center. My favorite part (aside from face-offs) was the increased defensive responsibilities. I think it would be a fun idea to switch to defense for a season. However, I’m a bit concerned that at 5’7″ (67 inches) tall, I would be seen as too small to effectively play defense. I decided to check NHL stats and throw something together in R. Data includes all players currently in the NHL as of June 20, 2018.
Based on my findings, it looks like there is a lot of variation across each position. Sure, the trend seems to be that players are taller the further back in the rink they are, but there is a lot of overlap in distributions of heights for each position.
After seeing the data, I don’t think that hockey has too much specialization based on height. Yeah, I’m not the tallest person, but especially for a rec league, I shouldn’t be discouraged from playing any position. I’ll sign myself up to play D next season.
Similar to the last post, here is a visualization made with R of the players’ assists awarded over the last 5 seasons. Graph only includes players with at least 5 full NHL seasons of data and is not adjusted for games missed due to injuries.
There has been some off-season talk about the San Jose Sharks making a push to trade for John Tavares of the New York Islanders. Tavares has been a strong goal-scorer for the Islanders, having been in the top 3 on his team for goals scored every season since being drafted in 2009.
I wanted to better understand how goal scoring was distributed among the Sharks to make it easier to imagine Tavares being added to the line-up. I threw this visualization together using R to help out.
Data includes goals scored per San Jose Sharks player since the 2013-2014 NHL season. I only included current SJ Sharks players with at least 5 full NHL seasons of data. Data is not adjusted for games played, so games missed due to injuries are reflected in the graph. I think this is fair because a skilled goal scorer is useless if he isn’t also durable. Can’t put points on the board if you aren’t playing.
I’ve been on the road a lot over the last few months. Admittedly, this means consuming more fast-food over the last several weeks than I have in the last several years. One can only consume the same fast-food salads over and over again before eventually feeling a need to explore the rest of the menus. Also, its been hot so…milkshakes.
Methodology: Not super scientific. I purchased the smallest size available at each place. Told myself I would stop at 5 but I couldn’t stop at a lower number, because then it would be a stupid looking list. Here’s how they ranked.
Generous sizing. Not very strawberry-y. Too sweet. Internet research says the shake contained 67g of sugar. Oof.
Whipped cream is a nice touch. Also not very fruity and also very very sweet. Liquid candy, but what did I expect. You have to slowly sip this one. Internet says 71g of sugar. Hoowwww….
Seemed more drinkable and not obnoxiously sweet than the previous two…but then I looked it up and it has 91g of sugar. HOW? Is my tongue broken? I don’t remember the serving size being that much larger. In any case, I ranked them before I researched them so…#3 it is.
T H I C C. Lower on the berry flavor than the previous three, but with the texture of real berries inside. This was the only one I had where I honestly thought it could have been sweeter, but it was also the last one I had and maybe my tongue got broken from the sugar overload of the previous shakes. Internet says 40g of sugar in my mini-shake. Thank you, Sonic, for offering a mini.
First one I had. Best tasting shake–the strongest strawberry flavor of the bunch and with the texture of real berries. Mini-sized for $1. A little on the sweet side, but still very gulp-able. Internet says 40g of sugar in this tiny guy.
Capitals beat the Golden Knights 4-1. With the ongoing joke being that the Caps are just the Sharks of the Eastern Conference, I suppose I could say that my original pick for the winner was right all along, I just had the wrong conference. I’m very happy to see Washington finally get their win and I suppose the “Caps West” label for the Sharks can’t be applied anymore.
Highlights of this series for me:
Predictions/Hopes for next season
See last post here.
Wowwwww. Vegas Golden Knights vs Washington Capitals in the NHL Stanley Cup finals. A team making it to the finals in its inaugural year + a team that has been in the finals 27 times since 1974 but has never won the Stanley Cup. A historic year for hockey and a treat for sport fans that value league parity (contrast with the NBA finals, where the Golden State Warriors have faced the Cleveland Cavaliers in the finals every year since 2015).
Anyway, let’s keep the prediction post organized like the previous ones.
Washington did beat Tampa Bay. Prediction accuracy for the last round was 1 of 2 (50%).
Winnipeg fell to Vegas after 5 games. My hope of a Jets sweep was far off.
Capitals, take my ༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つSHARKS FAN energy
Vegas’s depth > Caps’s depth. Also Fleury > Holtby. However, Caps in 4 because that’s what I want. Or 5. Or 6. Or 7. Pls
