Checkin in with the Asia Ice Hockey League

With the regular season in its final third and the Playoffs right(ish) around the corner, i thought it might be a good idea to take a little snap shot of the ol' Asia League of Ice Hockey. Now information in English is quite difficult to come by, so much of what i can figure out is from looking at stat sheets and box scores. Nevertheless there are some trends and interesting stories that emerge! Including:

1. Freeblades Attack - Despite having only been in the league for 1 full season, the Tohoku Freeblades wield the ALH's most high powered offense, having scored 30 more goals than their closest opponent. Led by Go Tanaka, the Freeblades have the top 3 goal scorers, top 2 players in assists, and 4 of the top 5 point getters in the league. All that offense has put the Freeblades battling for top spot the Oji Eagles.

2. The Fall of Halla - Last year's ALH Champion, has struggled this year, after being a dominant regular season team over the last few seasons. The Bears are currently sitting in 3rd place, 7 points behind 2nd place Tohoku. Halla may be battling the Nippon Paper Cranes and the Nikko Icebucks for that 4th and final playoff spot. Of no threat are Halla's Korean rivals High1, who sit far back in 6th place with 5 wins and 25 points.

3. The Mighty Dragon - The China Dragon have a new logo, no website and have picked up where they left off last year. They are the league's worst team, with no wins in 21 games, and have been outscored 25-125. Surprisingly, many of the Dragon's games have been close, and they have picked up 2 points for losing a game in overtime and one in the shootout. Despite their lackluster record, they hold the balance of power in ALH. Since playing the Dragon almost guarantees a win, A team can pick up valuable points against China's only ALH Team. Look for standings to be in flux every week and for the Dragon to pick up at least 1 win by the end of the season.


Dec 7, 2010 - The Sweet Science of Science Rap

On Todays show, The lads talk Colleen Brown, and her mighty music super powers, and play some textbot trivia.

Makin Whoopee Movies: Star Trek TNG Awful Reboot

Today on the show we started talking about that Buffy the Vampire
Slayer remake that has made all the nerds mad, as it won't feature any
involvement from former writer, producer, director Joss Whedon. This
got us thinking about other movies that shouldn't be remade, but
nevertheless, led to some interesting ideas, like Will Smith starring
in Citizen Kane.

Chad raised the idea of casting Jason Statham as Jean Luc Picard in an
awful "Star Trek: the Next Generation" remake, so that got me thinkin:
what would be the worst, and yet, best cast for an unnecessary TNG
film? Here are my picks:

Picard - Jason Statham
Riker - Russel Crowe (with aussie accent)
Dr. Crusher - Jennifer Aniston
Data - Ben Affleck
Worf - Samuel L. Jackson
Troi - Kim Cardashian
Laforge - Kayne West
Wesley Crusher - Justin Beiber
Tasha Yar - Lindsey Lohan

That's my awful cast! Whuz yours?

Not 1 but 2 Fundrive shows next week!

Its Fundrive time here at CJSR, where we ask for your support to keep
CJSR the vibrant energetic and independent radio station that we all
know and love. Now the schedule only calls for 1 episode of "Makin
Whoopee", at its normal Tuesday time slot, but unfortunately, Colin
will be out of the country (and hopefully not in Guantamo Bay), and
won't be able to make it! SO Makin Whoopee is going to do another
show, Wednesday November 3rd from 9am to 11am, following "Clockwork
Orange Juice". Double Rainbows!!

That's "Makin Whoopee" with Chad and Guests, Tuesday November 2nd from
7am to 9am, and "Makin Whoopee 2" with Chad and Colin, Wednesday
November 3rd from 9am to 11am, following "Clockwork Orange Juice"!

On Todays show, Chad and Colin celebrate the return of the Asian Ice Hockey League! They also answer some questions via their ‘Ask Chad and Colin’ inbox, discuss Chad visiting New York City, and Ponder ways to fit in as a New Yorker.

Playlist to come


Colin's Request Show!

Hi Friends, your friendly neighbourhood Colin here, and i have a problem.

See, Chad is on Holiday next week, which means I *gulp* i have to program the music for next weeks show. ALL THE MUSIC! Normally i don't mind programming the music, and have a couple playlists as backup, just in case Chad is captured by ice wolves, or zombie elves and can't come in use and use his musical knowledge to entertain us all. However, i have already used those playlists! They are all gone, and i can't play them twice! Thats like a CJSR RULE, and if i a break it, i face the wrath of the CJSR Complaints Bear

So, dear listeners, this is where you come in!

I need YOU to help me program some music! I want your requests to play on next week's show! We usually play between 20-25 songs, so I'd like to get at least 12! This is your chance to have some of YOUR favorite music played on your 3RD Favorite Morning show! There are some criteria though: including the following:

• The song can absolutly NOT have any swearing or foul language. I'll send my Mom after you. Not even kidding
• The song can't be less than 3 minutes. Unless its like super awesome. But 3 minutes or longer preferred.
• The song has to be available for purchase or legal download. I plan on making a CD of this mix ( best audio quality)
• I would prefer the song be upbeat/uptempo etc etc. Its the Morning after all! People need their Audio Coffee.
• I would very much prefer a Canadian Artist

So there you have it folks! Your request can be any genre: hip hop, folk, bluegrass, soul! Whatever you fancy! Simply put the name of the artist, the track, the album and YOUR FIRST NAME ( so i can give you credit) in the comments of this post! Hopefully we'll have a groovy mix for next week's show!

Thanks again for listening!

Sept 14, 2010 - Sally is our leader

On Todays show, Chad and Colin are joined by a special guest: Sally Poulsen of The Edmontonian, the Mystery Ponies and Producer/Director/Leader Bean of the ‘12 Months of Stephen Harper’ Videos.

Playlist to come!


did you know that pavement is on tour?

Sure did! In fact I'll be in NYC for a week at the end of the month to catch their central park show! Woot!

Ask me anything


Did the China Dragon get a NEW LOGO??

So I'm sitting here doing some browsing, getting ready for the exciting, bone mangling return of the Asian Hockey League ( Regular Season returns September 18th!), when i see the League has a new website. Much like the old website, it doesn't really work all that well ( or at least not the English Version) and there isn't much info...except for a possible new look for the China Dragon! Check out the website header!! I don't know what that is ( Yellow blob inside a red blob?) but its easily a step up from the Half Moon and hockey stick they had last year! I can't find a 'China Dragon' website, so details yet, but when i know, you'll know!

More details to come! Coverage of the Asian Ice Hockey League begins on 'Makin Whoopee' Tuesday September 21!

Sept 7, 2010 - How to be a Space Bachelor

On Today's show, Chad and Colin celebrate the Start of a new school year by laughing loudly and evil like into the Microphone.

They also answer your questions via formspring and debate the most debatable topic every debated, concerning Star Trek's Counsellor Troi, Major Kira and Tasha 'Death Becomes her' Yar.

what was the first piece of music you bought? How old were you?

Colin: Weezer's Blue Album. 14.
Chad: (What's the Story) Morning Glory? by Oasis. I was 11.

Ask me anything

were you at the victoria's secret grand opening?

No! This is because CJSR's mobile broadcast thing was not up and running.

Ask me anything

ha, where were you the day the smoke hit edmonton?

Colin didn't notice cuz he was at work.
Chad assumed the Fringe burned down. Then used Twitter to find out what it actually was. And no one knew. I was SCARED.
All day I wanted BBQ.

Ask me anything

Maybe the show should be renamed Makin Sporadic Podcasts.

Maybe your show should be called The Stupid Show, What Is Dumb All the Time!

(Podcasts on the way!)

Ask me anything

What are your favourite pizza toppings?

Colin: Vegetables! Or anything.
Chad: No onions, no olives.

how did you guys get the name for your show? it could have been rakin poopy

Once upon a time there was CJSR volunteer named Jon, who used to do fill-ins, and would always play Mel Torme's cover of 'Makin' Whoopee' as his theme music. One day, Jon and his friend Chad got a Tuesday morning show, so they called it 'Makin' Whoopee'. Later, Jon left, leaving Chad by his lonesome, until one day, some fool named Colin knocked on the door of CJSR, looking for the washroom....

And now you know the rest of the story.

Our Listeners are Awesome: Behold 'Epic Win'

So on this weeks show Chad and I were discussing a 'real life' rpg, wherein instead of fighting monsters, you eat sandwiches and go to bbq's. Christopher, from our Facebook Fanpage, sent us this link of an iPhone app that turns your everyday, ordinary life, into an EPIC RPG! Thanks Christopher!

Whales of Fail! No Podcast for this week :(

To quote Elijah Snow from the 'Planetary' Comic Series; " I am not happy Drums". It would appear that the computer which does a backup and records all of CJSR's programming went down Midnight Tuesday Morning, and didnt come back up until Wednesday. Which means all the programming within that window, including Makin Whoopee, didnt get recorded. No recordings = no podcast. No Podcast = unhappy fans and REALLY unhappy hosts.

Sorry about this friends! I can tell you that CJSR is going to be upgrading/overhauling its digital infrastructure over the next couple months, so these little blips ( which seem to happen every couple of weeks) will become a thing of the past.

Apologies again, and thanks for listening!

What's a "Samsonowich"??

For those who listened to the June 8th show, and were wondering what
the hot hot heat a "Samsonowich" is, here friends, is the dictionary

Samsonowich (sam-sahn-oh-which) NOUN: a sandwich which features a
Danish, placed in between two waffles. Can be served with Syrup and or
Whipping Cream. Named after its inventor, www.theedmontonian.com
