COMPUTER GAMES



the actual song kicks in at the 1:50 mark if you wanna skip all the bleepy-bloopy bullshit...

so anyway, i read on yahoo news today (the ONLY trustworthy online news source) that somebody found a photo of a guy from the 1870's that looks exactly like nicolas cage and that therefore he may or may not be a vampire. it really does look like him. and he may really be a vampire. why not? it could explain a few things...
in other news: ladyhawk is playing a show on friday. yup, that's right, we're still a band and we're still playing shows here and there. at this point even our newest songs are oldies, but oh well... call it the ladyhawk nostalgia revue. trotting out the "hits", so to speak. anyway, it should be fun, we're playing with one of my favorite local bands needles//pins (referred to as needles AND pins, but maybe they'd prefer needles slash slash pins) as part of the olio festival. lot's of great bands that i don't know anything about are playing all over the city. if you do the 24 newspaper crossword regularly you'll know that olio means mish-mash or hodge-podge. old people do crosswords.
i feel so out of touch with new bands both here in vancouver or anywhere. i don't really go to shows anymore. i don't read music media. i don't know shit. not that i really care, i still find out about music every day. it's not new (as in current), but it's new to me. it seems now more than ever there's so much music out there (and access to that music) and that's great, but i can't be bothered to check it out. when did i stop caring? the year 2000? who knows? i feel like i need at least a 10 year buffer to sort through a lot of it for me. that being said, i love shit like ariel pink, but most of his music was written and recorded 10 years ago anyway, so...
i guess this means i'm getting old. where's my god damn crossword?
for me it's all about the music my friends make, like jennifer castle's for example, it's cool, smart, beautiful and a little weird just like her. she's gonna be in town next week (thursday, sept. 29) playing an instore at red cat records around 5pm and then later at the electric owl. it's sure to be amazing so don't miss it!
anyway, enough rambling.
more nicolas cage!!!

OZZY!



part one of an 11 part documentary about one of the funniest, most fucked up entertainers ever!
you gotta check the whole thing... seriously.
i remember when i was a kid i thought ozzy was the ultimate most evil dude out there. he was possessed by the devil and if you listened to his music you'd get possessed too and either kill yourself or your family or start doing crazy shit like drinking piss or biting the heads off live animals. stories of the kind of terrifying and disgusting things that happened at his concerts circulated through the schoolyard in frightened whispers. your buddy's older brother with the ozzy patch on his jean jacket might hear you and decide to sacrifice you to the gods of heavy metal. years later, after reading about his exploits from bands who toured with him in his heyday, i found out that all the terrifying and disgusting things i'd heard as a kid were all TRUE! and there was even MORE fucked up shit we never heard about! but instead of being evil incarnate, he was just FUCKING WASTED. and funny as hell...

MOVIN' ON UP



just watched the amazing classic albums special for primal scream's EPIC 1991 masterpiece SCREAMADELICA (thanks to sipreano for floating it my way)! i can remember scouring all the music stores in the kelowna mall (there were 3 at that point) for the cassette and never finding it. i think i even tried ordering it in, but to no avail. i had to make do with the few songs i had on a warbly mix tape from a friend. of course i had never heard of E at that time and had no context for the music, i just knew it made me feel funny, kinda... happy? sorta made me wanna... dance a bit? foreign sensations to a terminally awkward and repressed 13 year old. these days you can throw on anything (zamfir? nana mouskouri?) and i'll take my shirt off and boogie my obscenely liberated ass off whilst dousing myself in cold gatorade, but back then? nope. no sir. my how times have changed. anyway, screamadelica is one of those albums that sounds like 5 different bands fighting (or is it fucking?) for supremacy and all of them winning (or is it coming?). pure genius.
watch the video here:

SLEEPING BAG



When it's cold outside and you want to sleep in
Go for a pallet that's so nice and thin.
Zip it on around while it's on the ground,
Spread it out and lay it on down.
Slip inside my sleeping bag,
Slip inside my sleeping bag.

You're afraid of the dark, baby, no need to be shy.
We'll talk about some lovin' while we look at the sky.
Don't be hesitating, it'll be alright,
We'll tuck it in until it's clean out of sight.
Slip inside my sleeping bag,
Slip inside my sleeping bag.

Let's go out to Egypt 'cause it's in the plan,
Sleep beside the pharoahs in the shifting sand.
We'll look at some pyramids and check out some heads.
Oh, we'll whip out our mattress 'cause there ain't no beds.
Slip inside my sleeping bag,
Slip inside my sleeping bag.

GOODNIGHT TONIGHT



this past weekend i got to witness my 5 year old niece running around in circles and screaming "DISCO! DISCO! DISCO!!!" at the top of her lungs for no apparent reason. i asked "do you like disco music? do you like dancing to disco?" and she responded by screaming "DISCO!!!" in my face and running away.

HERE COMES THE SUMMER



"Oh baby baby what can I do
You know you drive me crazy when I'm looking at you
The summer's really here and it's time to come out
Time to discover what fun is about

Here comes the summer
Here comes the summer
Here comes the summer

Keep looking for the girls with their faces all tanned
Lying on the beaches all covered in sand
Stretching out their long legs lying in the sun
They know they're beautiful they're having fun

Here comes the summer"

god, i'm DYING to hit the beach today!!!
oh well, work says no...

CHANCE MEETING

IF I WAS



you know, i'm not sure if this song is any good, but i've sure been humming it to myself all day...

THE THRILL OF IT ALL



The sky is dark
The wind is cold
The night is young
Before it´s old and grey
We will know
The trill of it all
The time has come
It´s getting late
It´s now or never
Don´t hesitate or stall
When I call
Don´t spoil
The thrill of it all
And before you go
to sleep at night
Preying shadows
do they ask you why?
And in the morning
through the afternoon
Do you wonder
where you´re going to?
Every word I use
Each crumpled page
Strange ideas
Mature with age
Like leaves
When autumn falls
Turn gold
Then they hit the ground
Every time I hear
The latest sound
It´s pure whiskey
Reeling round and around
My brain
Oh and all o' that jive
It´s driving me wild
The dizzy spin I'm in
Everywhere I look
I see your face
I hear your name
It´s all over the place
Hey girl
Though you´ve gone
Still I recall
The trill of it all
You might as well know
what is right for you
And make the most of
what you like to do
For all the pleasure
that´s surrounding you
Should compensate for
all you´re going through
So if you´re feeling fraught
With mental strain
Too much thinking's
got you down again
Well let your senses skip
Stay hip
Keep cool
To the thrill of it all
When you try too much
You lose control
Pressure rises
And so I´m told
Something's got to give
Oy Veh
High life ecstasy
You might as well live
I can´t see
I can´t speak
I couldn't take more
than another week
Without you - oh no
So I will drink my fill
Till the thrill is you
Oh the thrill of it all
Oh the thrill of it all
No I won´t forget
The thrill of it all
No no no no no no no....
