So I figure my hip-hop name will no longer be Suga Bones. I will now be known as Chill-E Dawg.
Hmmmm. Bauhaus tickets are $50. Plus Ticketmaster silliness I presume. Wish they were coming to Victoria instead.
Bought some guitar pedals this morning when I realized I was at work an hour early. A nice Danelectro tremolo called a “Tuna Melt” for some reason. Oh those wacky Danelectro guys.
I thought Ken and Jen were coming over for some singing today but there’s no sign of them. Maybe the Dairy Queen incident has Ken indisposed.
Our hat seeking mission was only half sucessful. I found the hat I want. But the store won’t have it in my size until next spring.
But Chelsea made me a fantatic toque for the winter!

The other night I saw a bit of a feature on CBC about the Montreal scene explosion. That was all fine, but they kept showing clips of the Pitchforkmedia guys — because they’re credited with “breaking” montreal — I was shocked at how ridiculous and actually stupid the guys are. I was expecting them to be a little pretentious and maybe a but snobby, but they really are the huge idiots that their reviews make them seem. Entirely lacking in wit, insight or… cool.
Strange sounds emanate from the Color Your World parking lot. I can decipher: power-washer and clanging dumpster hinges.
Marnie is far and away the worst Hitchcock film I’ve seen. Though Tippi and Connery’s acting was so bad enjoyment was gleaned.
Okay, so this sketchy under-educated young dad comes into the store all the time selling stacks of DVD’s. Always for cash to feed his kids. Like every day. Stacks of DVD’s. One would have to assume he’s stealing DVD’s to feed his kids. Or he is addicted to buying DVD’s and then realizes he has no food to feed his kids.
Anyway, he’s always a total prick to his son who is somewhere around 6 or 7 and has ADD or something. He’s always doing something weird and then getting yelled at for it and then cries and then the dad gets mad at him for crying but then says, “Your crying doesn’t affect me anymore. I don’t care.”
So, today they come in and this 85 year old record dude starts getting creepy with the girl who is about 1.5 years old. She isn’t able to answer all the “What’s your name pretty little girl” questions and the boy says, “She eats her own poo!”
The old man laughs nervously and the dad says to the kid, “They don’t have to know that! You ate your poo too!”
The previous time I’d seen them, the boy pointed at a girl and said, “She’s got great tits dad!” The dad was all, “You’re gonna get daddy in trouble! I told you not to say things like that… in public.” So let us assume the aesthetic merits of mammary glands is dinner table conversation in their house.
Steve promised me a raise today because in msconfig I turned off the half dozen anti-virus/adware scans his “computer expert” friend installed and now the store computer runs at a fairly normal speed as opposed to less than 286 speed. I told him I didn’t turn off the virus/adware scans and told him they were “just some kinda things that were running but I knew they’re not essential.” Steve is obsessed with worry that spyware will slow down the computer and insists on scans running all the time.
Chelsea’s doctor has banned the use of fans in our apartment. I doubt I’ll make it through the week.August 9, 2005
We watched the Hiroshima special a few days ago. I wasn’t impressed with how they glossed over the fact that Japan had actually surrendered before Nagasaki and America had “let the machine get it” because the second bomb was a different type and they basically wanted to see how it compared. Tibbits seems to have gone mad with denial and guilt. Though there was some evidence that he was mad to begin with.
We watched the first series of The Office (UK). It made me think I should create a mocumentary show about a record store and base the boss character on Lebitschnig.
We tried a new type of curry tonight. It was a “Caribbean style” habanero Tobago something-or-other.
We invented two new types of food (“Pizza Puffs” and “Salsa Puffs”) with varying degrees of success. Though “Curry Puffs” might be attempted in the future.
