That’s it! We are packed up and it’s time to leave this god-forsaken country for Canada, back to baby’s homeland, where the records flow like water, where bands hang out in collectives, where the dollar is good, where the gas is in “litres” which makes it seem less expensive, where the only Bushes are short tree-like plants with leaves, where they have polar bears, where you can find a river to “skate away” come xmas time, where I won’t get teased for saying “eh” or “abaoot”, where there is a store called Roots that was established the same year as me, where I can wander up and down a street named “Queen” for hours and hours and never get bored….. yeah, woohoo! So screw you work, screw you America, we are OUTTA HERE!!!
It’s just for the weekend? We are driving back on Monday? I’ve got to go back to work on Tuesday? I can’t quit my job?
But…. but……. baaaaaby……. aw maaaaaan……. fine.
Okay, yay work, yay America, yay stuff. Well, at least I got me some Bonnie “Prince” Billy to send me out and get me mentally chilled for the long drive tonight. This is another one of those albums I should’ve posted on probably about a month or so and so ago, but it kept getting bumped, sorry “Prince”. It’s his latest, Lie Down In The Light, Oldham brings the acoustic old-country laced with beautiful harmonies, intimate and gorgeous. That’s really it, and that’s all you need…
Enjoy and see you on Tuesday! Oh, and if you are in Toronto this weekend and see my gnarly ass walking down Queen St. with an old military bag full of records and a fine lady on my arm, stop and say “allooooo tsuuuu ruuuuu!” Oh, and don’t be bummed about no vinyl rips this weekend, you know why? There’s a shit load in the vinyl society right now, at this very moment and everything, so don’t wait for me, my friend, come on in…. the water’s fine.
