When the music's over...

Godspeed, Mr. Manzarek; off to reunite the poetry with melody and harmony.

As for me, hell, I'm gonna drift-off in this early morning rain with a whisky and a little "Riders On The Storm".

R.I.P Ray.

But enough about that, 'cause tonight his purpleness, Prince, is playing at The Vogue – yes, The Vogue – and as sweet serendipity would have it, I will be there, front row.

[3am]

And he fell back against our hands, Sweet P~ and me, and played guitar till we became one from three.

The Vogue is so small, you could take the seats out and play squash between the walls.  The energy in the room was immeasurable.  Absolutely amazing!

[God] "I've been wading through all of this unbelievable junk, and wondering if I should have given the world to the monkeys."

– Elvis Costello

An angry, reckless son-of-a-dictator threatens the free world with nuclear war, and what makes the top of the international news: Justin Bieber faints?

(deadpan)

Hey, why not?  I mean, only a few weeks ago, one million Syrian war refugees came second in the headlines to the release of a phucking phone.  Don't get me wrong, I'm relieved to know that the billionaire CEO of RIM won't have to take a pay cut this year.

What an embarrassment.  Really.  We are truly lost.

"...but the rules are very clear and there's no way we can go back on our decision."

– Denis Davila

What rules, Denis: gravity, spacetime, the speed of light... Or are we talking about a made-up contest called 'Miss Universe'?

It's a beauty pageant, she's beautiful... Let her compete.

Jenna, darling... Call me.  xo

Go Canucks Go?

When you can't tell from the news footage, which country is in economic collapse, which one is at war, and which one simply lost a hockey game, you know it's time to fear for the future of humanity.  We should all be ashamed.

While we plod along, fat, dumb, and happy, subdued by our ever-so-clever gadgets, this is how close we really are to anarchy.

As for the thousands of rubbernecking rubes who persisted downtown last night, fuelling the mob-mentality, adding to the chaos, hampering the efforts of police and rescue workers; whether you remained on the sidelines or not, you should all be arrested.  And yes, you were in fact breaking the law.

Wake up, lemmings; someday we will face a real crisis.

[4am - TV on - half asleep]

I swear I just heard Lady Gaga say 'longevity' is what matters most to her.  And being the archetype of substance that she is, I'm sure her career will...

(blink)

Oh, I'm sorry, did I miss it?

In direct contrast to that nonsense, Handsome Riche and I went to see Black Dub at The Commodore on Wed.  It was, by far, the most enlightening musical experience of my life.  If you're searching for something real, this is it: Dan Lanois, Brian Blade, Trixie Whitley, Daryl Johnson, and (subbing for Daryl on tour) Jim Wilson—music incarnate!

Has it really been a year since my last journal entry?

I really like John Mayer's cover of "Bad" by U2.

What's he call it, "Heartbreak Warfare"?

Tsk-tsk.

Duff,

I don't know that it matters whether or not I believe you; what you said is going to impact my life for the better.  Indeed it already has.

Thank you.
