Lord Of The Rings

May 31, 2008

Adrienne and I met this guy on the streetcar today.

He told us some guy stole a baby at the mall an hour earlier and he caught the guy and there was 40 wallets in the guys car. The police were totally surprised when they found the loot. “I catch 7 thieves a day, why can’t the cops catch this guy?”

I’m jealous of his Blue Jays ring.

VIDEO COUNTDOWN: Songs From A Room – Left Vs Right

May 30, 2008

I finished a video yesterday for Songs From A Room – Left vs Right.

Shot, edited, directed and produced by ME!!

Watch it! Seriously. It’s only 2 minutes and 30 seconds long. If you like Brayden, Dustin, Nick, Craig Mailman or Dave or are a fan of the band you’ll like it.

If you don’t like the band, maybe this video will change your mind.

Rolly Polly Horse Heads

May 29, 2008

This is Jon and Melissa sitting underneath Adrienne’s horse busts she found in Kensington Market a few weeks ago.

My grandmother made the horseheads on top of the fridge in 1990. She gave them to me when I went to visit her in Burlington on Sunday.
Here’s some of Kate Boothman’s collection she sent me, taken from her webcam.

Zune TO

May 28, 2008

I got an 8GB Zune in the mail today! I’m pretty stoked to use it, but it’ll be a couple days before I can set it up because I use a Mac at work and they aren’t Mac compatible. I have a PC laptop at home that I use for scanning slides, but my internet connection at home hasn’t been working for over 2 weeks now and you have to register Zune’s online before they’ll work.


YES Coexistence, NO Violence

May 27, 2008

I went to see Dark Meat at Lee’s Palace last night with Adrienne, Alex, Nick, Nathan, Joel, Brayden, Jaime, Dustin, Courtney, Steve, Jon, Alen and Alen’s friend Steve. I think everyone except for Alex, Adrienne and Jon liked it. I thought they put on a really fun show.

I introduced myself to the singer Jim after the show and bought him a beer. We talked about communal living and he told me about Orange Twin the label and community they’re involved with down in Athens, Georgia, which I’d never heard of before.

I told him I’d like to go on tour with them for a week sometime. I think it’d be a really crazy experience and he seemed into it. When Adrienne came over he seemed REALLY into her and completely stopped looking at me and gave her the creepy perv-eye stare for the entire time she was talking to us. Geez guy, I know you’re into free love and all but I just bought you a beer, you could tone down undressing my girl with your eyes right in front of me, you know, looking back at me every once in awhile, at least pretending you’re still interested in what I’m talking about. I grew up religious and I lived in a commune before too, I know allllll about psychedelics and mind control, so nice try, but really, come on.

That said, I’d still like to go on tour with them for a week.

They’re playing a free show tonight in Montreal at Zoo Bizarre! If you live in Montreal you should go.

Some of us went to the Green Room after and I had a ham and cheese sandwich.

G.Love #3

May 27, 2008

The new issue of Winnipeg Manitoba’s local culture magazine G.Love is out. I contributed some album reviews and photos. This is the most colorful and photo heavy issue so far. I just got my copy last night, so I haven’t had a chance to dig into it yet.
