Cinco de Mayo
In honour of "The Millenium" episode of Seinfeld, I had a call at work from somebody who swallowed one of the dessicants (labelled DO NOT EAT) from her calcium pills. Weird. I hope when she dialed Poison Control, she didn't get Jerry.

A synopsis of the episode can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Millennium_(Seinfeld)

I know I don't post much, but I will if something monumental happens. Such as my wife falling off the toilet from a mixture of a liitle alcohol and a lot of exhaustion. Heehee.

OK Go---Of The Blue Colour Of The Sky
We Are Scientists---Barbara

Help make an independent zombie movie at The Indywood Project.

Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks
I went to the show this past Monday, and I'm sad to say that I was actually disappointed. I understand that a band is going to concentrate on their songs from the most recent album, but they didn't play ONE of my ultimate favourites. No Jo Jo's Jacket. No The Hook. No Jenny & the Ess-Dog. No Dark Wave. No Mama. No Vanessa From Queens. I admit that I like the first two albums better than the last two, but throw me a bone, Stevie. The closest I came to one of my faves was Pencil Rot and Dragonfly Pie. The performance was rather good, but to sit in anticipation of one of my faves through the whole show and be left feeling let down kinda sucked.

But all was not lost. Blitzen Trapper opened the show and they were great. It was one of those rare instances that I actually wished that the opening act was the closing act. Blitzen Trapper played most of the songs from their latest album Furr, which I had only listened to twice before the show, but those tunes are excellent. They were tight.

Oh well. No more gigs on the immediate horizon.

I just found out that Modest Mouse is playing here November 7th, but the show is sold out already. The tickets were on sale in September. I missed that tidbit of info, but I knew when the latest Backyardigans DVD came out. How did I get so "out of the loop"?

Hey, y'all! Long time, no see.
Nicole took Natasha to a play-group yesterday called "Gift of Words". It was the usual stuff......read the kids stories, sing some songs. However, one of the mothers must've had Tourette's syndrome, and was probably a bit on edge because her kid was one of the unruly ones. Nicole said that through most of the hour, she could hear the mother saying "fuck" repeatedly and uncontollably. At first, she thought the lady was coughing, but soon realized this was not the case. I guess the kids all learned a new word yesterday.

It's true. I wrote most of Avril Lavigne's songs.

Bono blasts Harper; But PM shoots right back, saying pop star is misinformed

I'm no big fan of Stephen Harper, but Bono always pulls these antics every time U2 has a new album to promote. How convenient.

This may be fabricated, but my favourite Bono-is-a-hypocrite story is the one where he spent $1700 to have his favourite hat flown first class when he forgot it in London. What an ass.
