ScaryClown and I saw Jon Lajoie at The Plaza last night. The opening act was forgettable, but by the time Jon appeared the place was pretty much full. He did a lot more talking than singing, and didn’t end up doing more than four or five tunes. However, he did both “High As F***” and [...]

From an interesting NPR article, here’s Brian Eno on singing as a path to happiness: Singing aloud leaves you with a sense of levity and contentedness. And then there are what I would call “civilizational benefits.” When you sing with a group of people, you learn how to subsume yourself into a group consciousness because [...]
….and exsanguinating money like a drunken film star. This keyboard is French; it is hard to convey how hard it is to type anything and make sense. No USB cable so no pics. Paris is a pretty overwhelming city but certain things about it just make loads of sense. The legendary rudeness of Parisians is [...]
So. There is this filksong called The Mad Scientist’s Love Song which is performed by Lady Miss B and Dr. Filk. In a startling development, they reversed roles and Dr. Filk got to be the charming assistant. When I commented that I had never actually seen Dr. Filk in a dress before, this was the response [...]
Working backwards, I am ‘staying above the fray’ as Tammy and the exterminator battle with termites (this part of Toronto has them, and what can you do, eh?), I ate her goat cheese and garden picked oregano omelette (and it was nommy) with fruit and nut bread; I slept great, and in fact about two [...]
Blech. And yet somehow it is a very charming video as well.
Or is it a meta-analysis. Of course, I’m not ready. But I am readier. I am packed.
It has suddenly occurred to me that I Don’t Want to Go To France. I want to stay in bed for two weeks. However, life will likely hand me that kind of vacation in the form of a dire illness at somepointinmylife so maybe I should just do a tarot reading for the trip to [...]
Ha ha, hipsters! Die of the jellusy! On the 20th of February Jeff and I are going to take in the above noted at the QE Theatre! I mean, if the world doesn’t end first. Hm, must book tix for B-52s now, before civilization collapses any further and you can’t buy tickets for 80′s bands [...]
Here he is at what is technically the cenotaph of HP Lovecraft as he’s buried someplace else.
The house is shaking on its foundations and the branches are all sighing and whistling. Watched Margot at the Wedding. Lots of lying and yelling. Jack Black saved that movie from B+ TV movie mediocrity. The kid who played Claude was so cute I wanted to pocket him. Nicole Kidman’s accent wandered the screen like [...]
You’re kidding, right?
Someone who loves Robof9 is making him this hat for Xmas.
Un…be…lievable. Nice to see a cop dashcam being used for something aesthetic for a change.
…ScaryClown went to the grave of HP Lovecraft yesterday. He conveniently did it on a date that will be rather easy to remember. Me happy.
