We Rule The School

All x-chromosone (except the drummer) neo-goth cello squad Rasputina have scored the opening slot on the upcoming Belle & Sebastian North American tour. The same tour for which I just got four front row centre tickets for the Massey Hall show. Who wants to be my friend?

San Diego Zoo Panda-cam! Now featuring all-new panda cub! Awwwwwwww.

Okay, the image is so large that it’s fucking with my layout, so I will have to pad this entry with some further nonsense. What to do, what to do. Hmm…

Let’s see what the lead story in the Toronto Star is today? The provincial election is on Thursday, it must be something topical.

Tories put public at risk, nurses say

The Ontario government failed to live up to its moral and legal obligations of protecting both health-care workers and the public during the SARS crisis, the head of the Ontario Nurses Association told public hearings today. ‘Their job – to conduct random, thorough inspections of health-care facilities – simply was not done,’ Barb Wahl testified.

Well that’s not good at all. Click here if you want to read the whole story.

Did that do the trick? Seems so. Cool.

    Hmmm…sorry for being nosy, but how did you get the tickets to B&S? Contacts?They’re not on sale at ticketmaster yet, which is where I’m virtually camping out until they open sales. I must see them live!

    Hey Frank, are all four tickets spoken for? If not let me know, I am interested in taking one off your hands…

    I love you Frank! But you already knew that.

    Whereas I’m all, "Have fun" because I’m not interested. Yet I’m still your friend! Funny, that.

    Weird. Rasputina – gothy band with cellos. I saw them open for the Cranes. Perfect fit.

    Now having them open for Belle and Sebastian…. weird. I don’t think they would have been high on my list if I was a booker. How’d they get that slot? Has their sound changed? Weird.

  6. Andy says:

    Why on earth would you want to sit in the front row at Belle and Sebastien? Wouldn’t the pressure of not making any sudden movements that might startle the band simply ruin the experience?
