Venture vs. Kitty

August 26, 2004

Man , oh MAN!  I sometimes forget how much I love performing in Lethbridge. I got to see a bunch of buddies, which was nice.  I got to see my brother, which was nice.  I got to go down with Kerry Unger, pretend to harass the OnStar on call people, and hit a cat…which was nice.  Incidentally, I didn’t hit the cat, Kerry was driving, I just cheered on the van.

Oh yeah! we drove a Venture vaaan – completely unecessary.  I thought that we should have at least tried to kidnap/torture someone.  Or drive slowly through a school zone…you’re supposed to drive through school zones slowly anyway.  Well, at the very least I think we had a cat questioning it’s ability to outrun a Venture vaaan.  We’re pretty sure it was okay though, it ran off, which dead cat’s aren’t typically known to do.  It also wasn’t so much a squishy/bumpy sound as it was a double thump of a cat head bouncing off of a Venture vaaan exhaust system.

BUMP-KLUMP! You go kitty. You go Venture.

Buy My CD

August 22, 2004

The online store is up. If you don’t have my CD yet you can get it from the site. If you already have my CD…you can get it from the site.

Some of the formatting has changed. Again, this will be one of the ongoing changes to continuously improve your perusing enjoyment. There have been new links added to the links page and the warning page.

Oh, and the online store is up. You can buy my CD there.

Joe Cartoon, Tour Info, and Bubbles

August 19, 2004

Ever been bored?  Stupid question, you’re here after all.  Joe cartoon can kill an hour or so with zaniness and general f*ckeduptitude.  Atomfilms is another good place to check out some online short flick craziness.

I’ve added some updates to the links section, and the bio area is coming around with some in-depth investigations and revelations of my past…and yours too.

I have some new shows through B.C. coming up, and I’ll be in Lethbridge August 24th at the Blarney Stone with Kerry Unger.  F*ckin’ give’er!

Other than that, I’m adding some new pictures to Camden’s web page.  The little rat is growing quick.  He’s been taking swim classes – Monkey’s and Minnows.  For half an hour he gets to climb around in a jungle gym, a BIG jungle gym and then its off “swimming” for half an hour.  Basically, he gets to blow bubbles, float and splash around, and pee in the water.  Sounds like when I went to the Shuswap, ‘cept the bubbles I had to blow…well, it wasn’t chlorine that burned my eyes.

Sometimes I forget my family reads this.

*DISCLAIMER – I’ve never blown Bubbles.

UK, Van Halen, and Dental Work

August 13, 2004

Matt f’ed off to England and is ripping it up over there, we’re all proud of our troops we send overseas.  I wound up finding out that Steve Patterson is over there as well after I tried to contact him when he gave me a virus…a computer virus, don’t be lame.  They performed together with Sean Collins at the Comedy Store.  Damn great show those people got.

Incidentally, I’m still waiting for a photo for your link Steve. 

I’m also getting a lot of pressure from folks to update the page more often.  I’ll do what I can, but I do update it.  Let’s call it “Covert Ops – Web Updates”, the changes are subtle and not always on the front page.  (Brilliant idea having my blog on the front.)  My bio is going to be a work in progress, moreso for me, so if you don’t find it entertaining – sorry.  I want to delve into my past to reveal more about who I am and what makes me act the way I do.  After the stunning revelation that I spent the majority of my formative years in the eighties, it all became clear…talking about my youth is a lot like…well…i haven’t been curb stomped (yet), but I think it may be similar. But, not unlike getting a good ol’ curb stomping, acknowledging my roots is a necessary part of growing as a human being…with less blood, smashed teeth, and shattered upper palate.

I’ve begun my journey by listening to more Van Halen. The drums at the beginning of “I’m Hot for Teacher” are righteous!

…This curb tastes funny. *CRUNCH*
