It was the best thing in the history of best things.
Chris Nelson interviewed Bry Webb (yes MY Bry Webb, of the Constantines!) in a bathroom, which was a little odd, but Chris seems to have a thing for luring musicians into bathrooms.
Bry talked about his love for Neil Young. I always find it so simultaneously astounding and heartening when I hear that people whom I admire have their own heroes. It's the whole circle of life crap.
The Cons are finally putting out a second video - for Working Full Time. I wonder if they'll use the racoons again. I hope not.
We went through rolling blackouts during evening rush hour today, which was really weird as I don't ever remember that happening in Calgary before. Oh I know you folks in California and in southern Ontario are used to it, have been living with them for years, but somehow it made me feel so ... cosmopolitan.
Could this be a sign that Calgary truly is replacing Toronto as the centre of the known universe? Discuss amongst yourselves.
gift registries for kids' birthday parties
I have never fully reconciled myself to wedding gift registries, so to me this is an utter abomination. The little monsters should be happy with whatever they receive. And if you are trying to avoid an "awkward moment" when your kid tosses aside a present s/he doesn't like and hurts the giver's feelings, think twice. Shouldn't you use that opportunity to teach the little shit some manners instead?
