mumps-1

The Vancouver Canucks have been ravaged with a case of The Mumps this year and I felt bad so we wrote and recorded a song for them.

an Ugly Grey Box Studio production.

Today is National Grilled Cheese Day!  Wow.  Actually is Grilled Cheese Month… I am so thankful as a society we have our priorities set.

The grilled cheese sandwich is pretty much a basic staple of our North American culture… but did you know?  people have been eating bread and cheese since the olden tymes?

Its true! Like most things delicious (olives, Russel Crowe, sandals), the grilled cheese sandwich originated in ancient Rome.

The Grilled Cheese we enjoy came about in the good ole USA in the 1920 when two great innovations took place.

Cheap American cheese
and Sliced Bread

The grilled cheese is awesome and something I always play with at home.  I don’t normally hit a restaurant for it… but after watching Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, I have started to appreciate what can be done.  I remember one episode form a season or two ago when Guy hit Portland, Oregon and went to the Blueplate Lunch Counter.  They do up a fine grilled cheese and tomato soup!

Today, I went down to The Black Hat Bistro in downtown Victoria to talk to chef Sam Chalmers.  I asked him how to make the BEST grilled cheese sandwich. Please have a listen.

Yesterday, I was broadcasting my radio show from Sauce Restaurant.  My man Ryan was jocking the bar… so I hopped back there with him and had him explain how to make an Old Fashioned.

While at Sauce… Victoria Royals defenseman and Carolina Hurricanes’ draft pick, Tyler Stahl stopped by.  So I thought… I got my recorder machine, might as well jam out another episode of Hockey! with Jeremy.

Its been my mantra for awhile now…. the hazier, the better.

Anything that reminds me of 80s alt-rock or 90s indie/lo-fi is going to work in my earbuds right now.

Reading about Hot-lanta guitarist Lockett Pundt’s solo project Lotus Plaza got me excited to check out the single “Strangers.”

Pitchfork “Best New Tracked” the first single from his second record Spooky Action at a Distance.  Lets have a listen shall we.

Lotus Plaza – “Strangers” (soundcloud stream)

Jangly, fuzzy, hazy… like the heat rising off the pavement in summer.

Finally got a chance to jam out another episode of Hockey! with Jeremy.  Madelyn asked me how they make the ice in the hockey rink for a Victoria Royals hockey game… I go and find out… and maybe get a forth job?

I had a chance to sit down and talk with former WHL Victoria Cougar Tom Martin. Tom is best remembered as “that guy that got traded for a used bus” in 1983. He ended up being drafted by the Winnipeg Jets and enjoying 7 seasons of professional hockey between the AHL and NHL. He played in NHL games for the Winnipeg Jets, Hartford Whalers and briefly with the Minnesota North Stars.

The latest instalments of Hockey! with me… likely will air during this weekends Victoria Royals WHL hockey broadcasts on the Zone.

Mixcloud: Hockey! with Jeremy >> Roman Horak
Mixcloud: Hockey! with Jeremy >> Suicide Box

#51 for the Calgary Flames is Roman Horak.  Horak played his junior hockey in the “dub” for the Chilliwack Bruins.  Bruins were a WHL expansion team that played only 5 season in Fraser Valley.  This year… they are our team, the Victoria Royals… so that makes Horak an alumni of our team.  Neat.

I talk to Roman about how awesome it is to be in the NHL.

In episode 5, Suicide Box, I hang out at ice level to record the sounds of the game… I capture a great exchange between Timmy T and the Edmonton Oil-Kings.

I love hockey.

In a spectacular turn of fate, I get a chance to take part in a hockey game contest at the Save-On Foods Memorial Arena at a Victoria Royal’s WHL hockey game.

I win a coffee maker. I like hockey.

Stream from Mixcloud: Hockey! with Jeremy >> I win
Download MP3: Hockey with Jeremy 03 – I win

This hockey game did not bode well for the Royals… they lost to the Edmonton Oil Kings, 8-2.  I still had so much fun as it was the first time I got to see an entire game from start to finish.  (I usually bring Mads and bed time is before the game ends or else I am DJing and can’t go to the game).

I also got to go in the suicide box!  That is a box for the media right at ice level that separates the players benches.  I recorded some of the sounds and the chirping between players.  Still messing around with the audio in the studio but will have that done soon.

Thank you for listening.  Go with yourself.
