The Weekend

:: The weekend included three movies and a surprise birthday event, organized by L’il Kim, for Heavy G at The Sidetrack on Saturday night, which mean we who attended were able to watch The Northern Pikes, one of my favorite Canadian bands, perform late in the evening. The Pikes’ tune, Wait For Me, is one of my favorite songs ever, and features very tasty guitar work by Bryan Potvin. I was at the ‘track early enough to catch the band during its sound check, and spoke to Bryan afterwards. I told him how much I enjoy his work and style, and he took the time to show me the intro to Wait For Me, for which I am grateful – thanks, Bryan. (I’ve been working on it at home on the Martin J-40MC). The Northern Pikes are true road warriors, and have been at it for almost 20 years. Their new album, It’s A Good Life, is due out next week, check it out, you won’t be disappointed.

The evening was much fun with good friends, and my pal D Fy and I spent some time during the Pikes’ set to dance our asses off. Thanks, Deb! Geoff’s birthday is on July 8th, and he hits the big Three-Oh, so drop in on him and wish him well. He’s getting old.

:: The movies I saw were 28 Days Later, Terminator 3: Rise of The Machines, and Ash Wednesday. (ASIDE: Despite having loaded Macromedia Flash 6, I cannot enter the T3 site. Anyone else having this problem?).

:: I leave for Winnipeg in a week. One of the reasons is to attend a 32-year high school reunion.

    I don’t know whether to thank you or to kick you in the shins for blabbing to everyone that I’m turning the big three-oh. 🙂

    I use the new Google toolbar, which blocks pop-up ads. As soon as I turned the toolbar off, a new window launched and I could view the site. I’m sure you’re not alone in your confusion. Silly Flash people… The URL is missing from your post, but for those that want to see the site, it is at http://www.terminator3.com.

    Hope you had a good weekend.
    You should check out your new mugshot on my website.

    Thanks, Heavy. I tried that too, and it didn’t work. I’ll try it again. Frustrating. Thanks for the note about the missing link, it’s corrected. The weekend was fun, I really enjoyed Sat night with the Pikes and good friends. Happy Birthday, DUDE!

    Why clean your apartment when you can clean your website instead

    I’ve been doing a few little fixes to the site, stuff that probably should have been done sooner rather than…
