These are the times of our lives

I’ve been MIA for the past week or so and didn’t get my Show & Tell done last Friday.  I’ve been on a sort of vacation/working like crazy and haven’t had time to sit down and write.  Got a ton of DWW videos & photos, HTV videos, Domenica video and ridiculous amounts of fun times to write about and I hope things will die down a bit by the end of the week to catch up.

Hope you’re all beating the heat.  Here’s my DWW Light The Night video to tide you over.  It was the best show and James was there to play guitar :)

Matthew Good Live at the Concert Hall

On Sunday Dec 13 I got an early Christmas present from Kathryn. She took me to see Matthew Good’s Live at the Concert Hall taping. I was so excited to go and see him play songs from the new album Vancouver. I have been fan of his since the first album “Last of the Ghetto Astronauts” came out. I’ve seen more of his concerts than any other artist and he has never disappointed at a show.

We had 2nd row seats and the camera guy was sitting in front of me, so it was really like a front row seat, since he was up and crouched near the stage. I can’t remember the exact set list from the show but he did play Great Whales of the Sea, Born Losers & Strange Days which are some of my favourites. There is just something about his music that pulls at my emotions. I think he is a brilliant writer and applaud that he is who he is, and doesn’t try to bend to what a “rock star” should be.

I wish I could’ve brought my camera inside, but it will air on Feb 23 at 10pm on Bravo. I will probably be on camera, since pink hair seems to attract a lot of attention. I don’t mind though

It was a great night and such a thoughtful gift. Thank you so much Kathryn. You really are a great friend and I’m lucky to have you.

Hail the Villain in Ptbo… starring The Ladies

Need I say more?

Tonya & Rhianne

On Nov 25 Krista and I got on the Go Train to meet Tonya in Pickering for mid-week girls night out to see Hail The Villain play at the Red Dog in Peterborough. It always makes me feel a little anxious when I go there. Lots of good times happened when I lived in Ptbo, but lots of bad times happened as well. As soon as we hit Tapley 1/4 Line the anxiety set in. It’s so nice to see my friends that still live there, but I always feel like I have to look over my shoulder in case someone sketchy shows up.

We went straight to Rhi’s to see Lyla and Tommy and she made Salmon for dinner. I tried really hard to eat it but I just can’t do fish. Then we took some travellers of wine for he walk down to Splinkys (can’t remember the real name but that’s what I was calling it) to meet up with some of our friends.

Me & Lyall

Lyall showed up for a drink and I was pretty happy about it. Lyall is one of my all-time favourite people and we’ve had some pretty interesting times over the years. You are one of few people I know that look good with a big beard.

Krista, Me, Lyall

We were a bottle of wine and two pitchers in when he showed up and this was the beginning of our ridiculous night.

Luke the Magician’s hand & Krista

Randomly enough a magician named Luke Farley was at the bar. I met him at my sisters You Might As Well Live after party HERE back in August and he recognized me, even with the pink hair. He was showing us some pretty awesome card tricks and even taught us how to do one.

Rhianne, Me, Krista

For some reason the more we drink the more boob grabbing and kissing there is…hahaha

Krista, Rhianne, Me, Brienne, Tonya, Danielle

Yay! Brienne and Danielle showed up to say hi and have a few drinks. I don’t get to see B as much as I like and I kept getting happier and happier the more people I ran into.

Rhianne, Me, Paul, Brienne, Tonya, Danielle, Krista

Brienne’s boyfriend Paul is way bigger than all of us. He can play a mean guitar and we have been known to break out into Bon Jovi songs while drinking. So happy to see you guys!

Hail the Villain didn’t end up playing til about midnight and we were all a little ridiculous at this point. They played a good show and I ran into one of my old friends Dan at the bar. We did a Jager shot and it was my first one in over a year. I took it like a champ and didn’t get retarded or hungover from it. Is Jager back in my shot repetoire?

The Ladies

This proves that we all made it to the show. We were definitely not drunk by this point. hahaha. I love you ladies and thanks for such a great night!
