It's Monday again. The Wild play the Canucks tomorrow night. It'll be interesting to see if the line combinations stay the same as how the ended the last game. Probably for the time being at least?

In the baby Wild's loss yesterday he had an assist and six! shots on goal.
Start the work week off right with a lovely song set to a piece of early cinema history. A Trip to the Moon, directed by Georges Melies is a silent film from 1902. It's absolutely gorgeous, and fits well with this Josephine Foster track. It's the first science fiction movie, and has beautiful painted sets, and awesome practical effects that still look really cool.
