So, I was searching for lyrics to a Duotang song when I found an old interview with Rod Slaughter, and yeah.

"Winnipeg, and I get a feeling Montreal's like this too, is the kind of place where, if you want to be a socialite, you move to Vancouver. If you want to make it in the entertainment industry, you go to Toronto. For business, you move to Calgary. If you just don't know what the fuck to do, but you'll make up your mind next week, you stay in Winnipeg."

No society that feeds its children on tales of successful violence can expect them not to believe that violence in the end is rewarded. -Margaret Mead, anthropologist (1901-1978)

Neil Gaiman will be in Minneapolis, signing copies of Anansi Boys, the day after my birthday. I think that I should be there.

I'm having trouble typing, because my arm is still sore from yesterday. Needless to say, transcribing didn't go so well today.

Also, am I the only one slightly freaked out that The Weakerthans are on the Wedding Crashers soundtrack? I mean, yay for them and all, but still. Dude?

Least favourite Novillero performance, although there's a cute bit at the end of Aim For the Holes In Their Lives. It just seems very quiet, like Rod's voice is muffled or too far away. It does pick up at Habit Over Heart, and continues on a high through the end.

Have spent the morning editing and teasing [livejournal.com profile] andrealyn with Winnipeg music. I shall soon put together the ultimate Winnipeg music playlist- any suggestions from the people who actually know different Winnipeg groups?

ETA: [livejournal.com profile] pyroclasticgrub, it's not a big deal, but mom was asking if you still had her Wailin' Jennys CDs.

Since I was already spoiled for the book, I have no problems reading spoilers now, and OMG, I'm going to try to get all of my transcribign done before Monday.

Um. There's a wedding I have to go to tomorrow. Damn. Tuesday then.

Mom and I have new cellphones. I still have the same number, so. Yeah. Not entirely sure how I feel about the whole thing.

I had a really crappy dinner at Montana's. I'm left craving steamed asparagus and glazed carrots, so I may make up some carrots later in the evening.

I'm tired of the mosquitos and heat now. Bring on winter, I say (unless it makes my ankle hurt. Then bring on spring again.)

Holy shit. Novillero was fucking amazing. That had to be one of my favourite concert experiences, ever.(The Paperbacks were quite good as well, and Chords of Canada were... meh.)
