Go Electric Music Festival in support of electric trains in Toronto

I attended the Go Electric Music Festival yesterday in support of electric trains in Toronto. It was a great time!

Lots of good music, fun and positive people looking for an electric alternative to 400 diesel trains a day roaring through heavily populated
parts of Toronto.

I will have video online soon of the Festival, so check back.

BREAKING: Another X-DAY passed, no UFO overloads appeared. Next year the SEX GODDESSES land for sure! Says Bob.


Hello Reader,

This past weekend, mutants and SubGenii came from far and wide, gathered together and awaited XDAY THE DAY THE WORLD ENDS AND THE UFOS COME TO SAVE US!

Every XDAY from 1 XDAY to 12 XDAY has been a total letdown, as the world is still here and every SubGenius is not aboard Nirvana-filled pleasure UFO saucers, filled with SEX GODDESSES and everything else you could ever want, dream of, or imagine.

Why would anyone have hope that 13 XDAY would be any different and we wouldn’t be let down again? Because Bob said so, that’s why.

13 XDAY or XIII XDAY was on July 5th, 2010 and guess what? What happened?

NOTHING!! The world is still here and no UFO saviors, as Bob promised!! No SEX GODDESSES!!! WTF?

But, rejoice! Ye, the workings of Bob are strange and mysterious! There is no need for upset! Bob is a fickle one, and X-DAY will come to pass one…XDAY soon. As the living avatar of slack, can we expect anything less from Bob?

The Church of the SubGenius spreads the word of Bob across the globe like oil from an underwater Volcano: thick, gooey and hot!

I’ll be keeping my eyes on the skies until next XDAY!

Happy Summer – Summer Solstice! The longest day of the year! (northern hemisphere)

Today is the first day of Summer…the Summer Solstice – the Sun at the height of its power for the year (in the northern hemisphere).

What’s the Summer Solstice? For those who don’t know, today is the day with the longest time of daylight: the longest day of the year! Today is the day when the sun is the highest in the sky, in the northern hemisphere. In the southern hemisphere, welcome Winter!

From here on in, the days are getting shorter for us northerners, while you southerners will notice your days getting longer.

Canadian Music Week – night one last night

Last night was a lot of fun, seeing a few bands that I’d never heard before, in venues that were familiar.  I took in clubs that were right across the street from each other: The Hideout and Tattoo Rock Parlour. Then, I  went down the street a bit to the Cadillac Lounge. I’ll have some video online shortly from the first of four nights! We’ll see how many I make it out to!

Bands I saw: Abandon All Ships, The Rebellion, Good And Broken, TV Heart Attack, PUMPS, The Cringe, Tin Star Orphans, Eddie Orso.

I’ll be at Canadian Music Week and Film Festival

CMW banner

I’m going to be blogging/video blogging about some of my experiences at Canadian Music Week, happening from March 10 to 14, in Toronto. It should be a lot of fun, as I’m a music lover and have done a lot of music-related videos and film work. For more info on CMW, see their site: http://www.cmw.net

Also, of particular interest to the filmmaker and film lover in me is the Canadian Music Week Film Festival, which runs from March 12 to 13. There is a new Doors documentary called “WHEN YOU’RE STRANGE” and a film about John Lennon titled “NOWHERE BOY”. I’m looking forward to them both, and there are some other interesting films, including a screening of the 1974 Brian De Palma, classic “PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE” !
