Internationally acclaimed Montreal DJ Champion is back! And it's good too. It sounds like the stuff we love him for, no doubt about that. It's got that Champion hook, and it's going to be awesome live. What's coming up and when? Who knows, for now all I found floating around is this:
Really, I'm giving more and more insight into my troubled mind in this blog: I'm a total Spiderman nut. A bit OCD actually. In this quite funny video, you'll find out about the spider's past and future, on Brodway for example. Guffaw!
Marilyn Manson and Lady Gaga reworked Love Game by the Lady. Even if it reeks of commercial opportunism, I applaud the initiative. What a match, as they say. The song is meh at times, but there are some great bits. What I hope for is another collaboration between the two, and maybe something more... original. The sound quality sucks, but that's because it's a recording of a recording. I'll post a better version when I find one.
PS Is it just me or do they look a little alike too?
Yesterday, my roomie Claude and I had a friend of hers over for dinner. Two bottles of wine and a few scotches later, we decided to play a little Texas Holdem. Result? I didn't loose my shirt but I'm in no way capable of writing a better post than this this morning!
So here's Kenny Rogers and his gambler during what seems to be the last leg of a recent geriatric tour. Oh, and in other news, too much surgery will eff you up.
(Big thanks to Frédéric Laurendeau who let me use his photos)
When I wrote my pre show post, I had only heard recordings. What a revelation seeing them live was! As you know, I have a little (ok big) preference for Rock. Oh joy and happiness, they majorly rock out on stage.
During the show, the electro accents of the record were a bit more subdued, and their Punk Rock side much more obvious. Of course, let's not forget their funky side, also very present, thanks to which we dansed, jumped, tapped our feet...
So the quality of the songs and of the recording makes Gear a good album and a good buy... but go see them live. The chemistry between the band members and with the public is so good it makes you wish you were on stage with them. Proof? I usually am much too cynical to clap during a song, and in this case my hands were red from my efforts to participate!
Maybe a few of you have noticed I haven't been making daily news posts recently. Well, Twitter's to blame for that!
Ever since I've started using Twitter, I've been sending everything 'short and sweet' through there so... yeap, that's it, look at the box on the right to see what I've been Twittering about, and feel free to follow me if you use Twitter too.
Spin magazine (maybe I'll work for them someday, I can dream can't I?) recenlty did a piece about a Montréal band I love: The Sunday Sinners. (ok actually I'm a total groupie because the drummer is a friend of mine).
So here's the mini documentary for your viewing pleasure, filmed at L'Esco in Montréal last month! Sonia, Blue and I were there and you weren't, naninanibooboo... hehe.
