Unfortunately, the time off must have been a bit much for the young Dinos, as the team showed major signs of rust over the weekend, losing both games by wide margins.

While most people's exposure to the world of puppetry has been limited to Saturday morning children's shows and corny ventriloquist acts, Calgarian Xstine Cook's International Festival of Animated Objects is working to change all that. The IFAO runs Jan. 19-28 and will highlight the best and brightest from the world of puppetry, masks and all things animated. Throughout the world there are a handful of puppetry festivals, but Cook went one step further and decided to make her festival about more than just puppetry.

  Spun: Sarah SleanPDF files may take a moment to load

Part live album, part studio recording, Sarah Slean's fifth album, Orphan Music, is both elating and disappointing. Clocking in at 15 tracks, Orphan Music gives listeners an hour-long showcase of Slean's classically-trained voice and piano talents melded with her signature foot-tapping, catchy pop stylings.

  Spun: Freedom WritersPDF files may take a moment to load

While most albums face a series of challenges, soundtrack albums face an additional hurdle: preconception. Regardless of how enjoyable the music, the casual listener will only remember if the film was any good. It's a shame that Freedom Writers was so generic, because the soundtrack is a surpringly listenable, if flawed, collection.
