  1. Sorry for the anxiety.

    my credit card was hijacked for $6000 and I had to turf it and get a new one. I thought I'd updated my billing correctly but the invoice was hosed and license expired.  Thanks to Davey-Boy for notifying me.



  2. Wed/Thurs/Fri for sure.

    I'm not going to make it for Earle but will be there for TTB.  Definitely Byrne, but also will do a quick pop-in at Trampled by Turtles.  Going friday for stuff.  Chet Faker seems interesting enough, yeah?

    54-40 unplugged though?

    "What it was," he explains after I have prompted him, "was over at John's house, and it was just a group of us. And instead of just getting roaring drunk and partying—I don't even know if we were staying over or anything—we were all just in these chairs, and the lights were out, and somebody started masturbating, so we all did."

    There would be about five of them: McCartney, Lennon, and maybe three of Lennon's friends. As they each concentrated on their mission, anyone in the group was encouraged to shout out a name that would offer relevant inspiration.

    "We were just, 'Brigitte Bardot!' 'Whoo!'" McCartney says, "and then everyone would thrash a bit more."

    At least until one of them—the one you would perhaps expect—opted for disruption over stimulation.

    "I think it was John sort of said, 'Winston Churchill!'" McCartney remembers, and acts out the aghast, stymied reactions.




  4. i'm convinced i had it at my previous house.  I considered that I may have lent the album out, but I had 2, and don't think I would have lent out both.

    also missing are a load of videotapes.  The most important ONE is a videotape of the Beatles cover band i put together in Kingston…playing at the British Pavilion during Folklore festival.  That is gold material.  

    Did I forget stuff in the move? Did things "fall of the truck"?  I dunno. But that damn videotape is irreplaceble and worth infitinite laughs.  



  5. yes, added funds. 

    I used to head there on the bus regularly during high school hours.  NOt sure how many classes were skipped to pick up some original Beatles vinyl or new releases by Prince, Terrance Trent D'Arby, Tom Petty, Travelling Wilbury's, you know… all the hits from the mid to late eighties.

    Most of my record collection was built from that place.  Mind you, a few of my treasures have gone missing somehow.   Example, The Concert for Bangladesh. I had 2 copies from there.  One original, and one re-issue.  where the hell do box packs like that go?   It's not like missing a fucking sock for fuck sakes.

    It is amazing that he's been in business as long as he has.  I don't think there are any original vinyl shops left in Kingston (like house of sound for example).

    Not sure if all this would be too country-ish for Bluesfest though.  No sarcasm, serious question: are there any blues bands that play the main stages anymore?

    I'm not aware of any.  

    The main stage acts seem to help the festival maintain a large presence allowing them to program blues and other genres on the smaller stages and interior stage in the museum.  

    These smaller stages are by no means small, they are certainly overshadowed by the mainstage acts and we can basically just consider this a music festival without any genre in the brand.

    It is certainly time to change the brand.  Ottawa Folk Festival was successfully rebranded as CityFolk Festival.  Why not simply just call the bluesfest, the Ottawa Hot Humid and Sometimes Stormy Live Music Festival?

    Be descriptive and reflective.  ?

    also, I was digging for old posts on this topic and love this post from Velvet in 2009 referencing acts that have been rumoured to appear.
