The curiousity is killing me ...
About a month ago, Eva won the Lost in Translation contest on Definitely Not the Opera for identifying the mistranslated lyrics of Joel Plaskett's True Patriot Love. They asked for her address and that was the last we heard of the whole thing.
I kept telling her to contact CBC, to use the same tactics I use at work when I want to hound somebody about getting something done without making it appear like I'm hounding them, which is send them an email asking "is there any more information you need from me in order to get this completed?"
But of course she never did.
And then today she left for camp, and guess what arrived in the mail? Her parcel from CBC of course. It's killing me not to open it, but I won't do that. But it's not a t-shirt, which is too bad because retro CBC t-shirts are all the rage right now. It feels like maybe a CD and a DVD.
Oh my god, what if it's Sook Yin Lee's porno movie that she just made. Well, I guess it's not actually a porno movie, but pretty close, from what I understand. We already have her cd.
The Constantines are supposed to be on some American tv show tonight, but I couldn't find it, but I did find this great footage of them playing in a hailstorm at the Sasquatch Festival this year.
Those boys don't let a little hail and driving rain keep them from rocking out. Check out keyboardist Will Kidman hanging from the rafters at one point. Literally. They've just got way too much energy for one little Canadian band.
