In related news, Tina Fey's live blog from the 30 Rock finale is here.

If you're one of the 17 people who still care about hockey, do I have a treat for you! Dispatch BlueJackets reporter Michael Arace is blogging his way through the NHL playoffs. So far, his entries seem pretty in-depth and entertaining.

While you're doing that, please enjoy a mashup of songs from The Fragile Army, the new Polyphonic Spree album. Hey, it could be good.

I get why Time is letting us decide who its "most influential people" are, but maybe they should not let us do that?
