Thursday is among my three most garbagey days this week. I hope yours is going better than mine.

This morning’s soundtrack is brought to you by a dream I had of hanging out with my old friends from the early 2000s.
Joel Plaskett Emergency – Truthfully, Truthfully
This is and always will be a solid album, and one that brings me back to days of youth and life and my own continued essence of cool-loserness. The ‘cops show up’ a bunch of times, the music is the very definition of deliciously fun rock ‘n roll, and there are at least 10 quotable lyrics that solidly define that part of my life. That’s right, I am the living, breathing female version of John Cusack in High Fidelity, for the next 20 minutes.
There has not been a show during which Mr. Plaskett has disappointed me. Miklos felt bad for me after we missed the June show at Brock because I was working in a pee-pee soaked heckhole so he got these tickets as soon as I found out they were on sale. We’d been looking forward to it all summer. So when we realized it was actually October 19th this past week, we got ourselves psyched, headed to Hamilton, Ontario, and got slightly lost in a parking garage and eventually found our way to the show. What a great time.
I merged two songs into one video by accident which I’m sure is Youtube faux-pas. Sorry, internet! Apologies for the heads in the way too.
Joel Plaskett – Natural Disaster & Down at the Khyber @ Hamilton Place
It’s been a week full of business preparatory. I can’t help but feel somewhat ready for this now. It will be nice to actually shoot soon and get back to the part of the whole deal that I love.
Tonight the Miklos and I venture off into the Hamilton night to see Mr Joel Plaskett. We will be serenaded by sweet, sweet tunage and hopefully I will get more than one excellent shot of the band. I’ve been waiting for this since I missed his show at Brock in June? July? Whenever it was, I was sad. June must’ve been. Sad! Preparing myself for a whole lot of great.
