Back to School 2009

It’s a week before labour day and I’m on schedule to be back in front of my computer everyday on Sept 8th! I’ve been doing a lot of work rearranging and building furniture and gear for my studio.

I was going to wait until I was finished to post pictures of it, but I’m too excited.

I went to see Inglorious Basterds the other day and it’s very gory, sadistic and funny. “Sadist”, “sadistic”, and “sadism” are words I’ve been considering the past few months. Not in a leather and bondage “sado-masochistic” sense, but just the idea of people who enjoy putting other people through pain. It’s pretty common, but I don’t think those words get used often enough when describing people. It doesn’t make someone bad to be a sadist if they tend to deal with people who have a masochistic outlook on life. I think I’m both.

Adrienne and I went to see Blue Rodeo at Molson Ampitheatre last night. She got teary eyed near the end when they played Diamond Mine because she said it transported her back to being a teenager. Tender moments.

I love the comments people posted for Diamond Mine on youtube, like “I love the bass”, and “I love greg keelor’s voice. so gruff and emotional.” hahaha. My dream is that someday people will call my voice gruff and emotional.

Youtube took down my Jay Reatard Punch video last week because they said youtube doesn’t promote violence or some bullshit like that. It was up to 170,000 views and I was still getting comments and ratings on a regular basis! I think I’m going to appeal their decision.

The Bang Bangs are playing at the Silver Dollar tonight with the Smith Westerns, the Superstitions and I don’t know who else. I think it’s been over a month since we played a show. We’re planning to post some songs on our myspace in 2012, and release a 4 song 7″ in 2013.

    I’m interested in what you thought about Inglourious Basterds. I saw it opening night and was super, super pumped about it. I’ve been following it since about January. As much as some of the dialogue, like the opening farmhouse sequence and the tavern sequence, was pure genius, I thought that it could’ve been better overall.
    At this point, I’m still favouring Kill Bill (both vols.) and Pulp Fiction over it. What did you think?

    Basterds ruled. Landa’s smile is pure evil. I’m also in love with the Bear Jew.
