    Monday Music Nonsense #1

    Monday Music Nonsense is a little game I like to play to test my music trivia knowledge. I pick a random topic and a random band or solo artist and riff on what I come up with.

    And if I don’t know the answer, I make something up.

    Rendering video for a new semi-comedy bit YouTube series I’m starting based on all the useless music trivia I have in my head. Should have some links later tonight or tomorrow morning.

    maQLu - “Lucky Paw” - acoustic jam space performance

    Quick and dirty acoustic version of “Lucky Paw” off of last year’s album Malfeasance. Which is closer to the way it was when I wrote it than the actual album version.

    Anyway, shot in my jam space on August 26 2014.

    Went to the retina specialist today, snapped this pic of his computer screen showing a photo of the inside of my eyeballs, complete with Windows cursor.

Granted, I suspect at least 950 of them are bots, but still.

    Hanging out in the CiTR lounge, wondering which of the children (er, 20-something kidults) around here forgot their stuffed bunny and therefore won’t feel protected from the monsters under their dorm room bed.

Anyway, the Vampire’s Ball kicks off in an hour or so at 1am on 101.9fm Vancouver, http://CiTR.ca

    Speaking ill of the dead

    Ah yes, you simply must
    —must!—
    point out Thunders’ foibles.

    As if no one knew of his addictions…
    as if anyone would think
    that lyrical references to tracks
    weren’t literal.

    Or that the syringe in his hat
    was only for decoration
    like a feather

    As if it matters now…
    23 years later.

    The discussion was about imagemaking
    posing and portrayals
    and inadvertent windows into his soul.
    It was about his heart,
    flashed in an unguarded moment
    and captured for as long as the pixels hold out.

    But you can’t stand that
    it still matters now…
    23 years later.

    because you know
    no one talk about you…
    23 years later.

    I will let you in on a little secret.
    Spit at him all you like:
    it lands on your own face,
    not his.
