Music notes

1. Unless there is another Esther K., I won a copy of the new album from the beautiful Jenn Grant from I (heart) Music. Hurray! I never win things. Thank you, Matt.

2. There are many mysteries in Toronto, the greatest one of them being why not everyone in this city knows about Bruce Peninsula. Their CD release was Sunday, and they were definitely worth ditching the adorable Dustin Lance Black for. I also met the lovely Casey Mecija of Ohbijou and freaked out a bit, arms flailing included, and I'm pretty sure I freaked her out too but it was good times for all. Anyway, watch two of Bruce Peninsula's power songs here and here.

3. Posters have gone up in the school calling for performers for our annual coffee house. A part of me wants to sign up, but most of me says "you will probably have a panic attack and throw up on stage and be hurled into the dungeon for being so ridiculous and you'll probably have to dig your way out of the creepy basement with a spoon".

hey hero brother

Happy belated Family Day! It's a pretty hilarious provincial holiday, apparently only practiced in Alberta, Sasketchewan, and our beloved Ontario, since last year. It's reading week, so it really made no difference to me, but I did go up to my parents' house.

On that note, big brother & little sister...

My love child of time, paints clothes and numerous cuts of the past month or so is finally opening. Super excited. :) Wish it wasn't the same night as Bruce Peninsula live at Soundscapes though...

My hilarious find of the day:

But I must say, they run a high-risk of being thrown out.
