Highs:

- Going home to visit family & friends for a few weeks over Canada Day
- Taking on new duties at work
- Getting a promotion before the Christmas break which I start in 2 weeks
- Kids are doing awesome still
- I got What.cd? and Waffles by years end after Oink died
- Darkest Hour keep getting better with every album

Lows:

- Only saw 1 show ALL YEAR and no new movies
- Oct 23, Oink gets shut down
- 3 week vacation wasn't long enough
- The heat, I so can't stand the heat
- Droughts suck too




A lot of people ask me what kind of music I like. I love "soul music". My "soul music" isnít a style, genre or niche. Itís music that is genuine. Itís a painful lyric, a dirty bassline, itís a harrowing vocal, itís feedback, itís an anthem, itís a love song, itís anarchy. Iíve got my personal favourites but in the end it doesnít matter who or where it comes from... so long as itís good and it's real.
- Paul Morris, music director at 97.7 HTZ-FM

Bad:
My dog died, my truck exploded, every date we set for my band last summer/fall fell through (only 4 dates, but it still sucked all the wind right out of our sails).
Good: I have a job, I have a happy family, I am able to put a roof over their heads. The band is ready to start kicking some ass in the very near future.




Well, its this place where nobody works, and the pigs don\'t give you any shit. Everyone smokes weed and gets drunk all day. Its a place where cunts like me and you can truly take it easy and relax. Know what I mean?

^^^^^^^ Ya this is definitely awsome around here too. I think is amazing how conforming the smokers are to this. No one bitches at least seriously bitches. They all or most abide and go outside without any issues. Its weird. Before this happened everyone was talking revolt and boycotting. I guess that is why they made it such a grey area for a year or so before instilling the law. Everyone just gave because they were unsure of when it actually was to happen.
