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!!!

Sometimes I bring a pen with me when I go out for lunch so I can do the 24 Hrs crossword while eating soup and a half sandwich. OLD.
