Unexpected Three Day Weekend!

Sorry about that, kids. Actually, wait. I'm not sorry. I was in Guelph demoing new songs with the Fabulous Ictusband, who might be playing a show with our old friends in Explode When They Bloom next month. The Trail is a skilled xylophonist. But only when the notes are engraved on it.

Speaking of our old friends, they get the full writeup treatment in the latest issue of The Lance [on stands now]. I've know Dave since the Disposition days, and I'm proud to see his talents [and the band's] finally get the recognition they deserve [saw the 5/5 writeup in The Scene this morning, too. Aces, boys].

Though, Lindsey? They're from KingsVILLE, not Kingston. :P

The Globe looks at which presidential candidate is better for Canadians. Despite the Obama-love, McCain might be better for Canada's interests, if not our sanity.

A Spider-Man game that actually fights the way Spider-Man should fight. That means something else will invariably suffer.

It is worth noting that by going to Guelph to be a skilled vibraphonist, I missed the FREE(!) Video Games Live performance in Dundas Square here in Toronto. Probably better. I wouldn't have wanted the nerds to see me start crying when the theme for FF:X started playing.

Shock and horror! Scotty2Naughty leaving Windsor?! Dear Lord, no! Good God, man, you're an institution! But I wish you well, my friend. The Rose City was lucky to have you. And you'll quickly find, even though you leave, you're never really gone.

Tribute: Shit, piss, fuck, cunt, cocksucker, motherfucker, tits.

Hey Mr. Trail,

The VGL show was pretty incredible. For me, the shining moment was when they followed up their encore performance of "One Winged Angel" with the Castlevania theme. It was a great time to be a geek, no question.

I'm part of a website that had the good fortune to get a behind-the-scenes interview of VGL's Toronto show last year. You can check it out here if you're so inclined: http://www.theoffline.com/shows/onlocation/video.games.live.php

Catch you later.
