Finished the most mighty of weekends… a couple fundraisers and a couple weddings made for a busy 4 days.  Somewhere in that mix I had to try and be a dad and do you know… my actual job on the Zone.

Focus was required, but hard to come by as I have my eyes firmly planted on Friday, September 23rd… Rifflandia!

OK, so Rifflandia actually begins on the Thursday, Friday is when Boitano and me DJ at the Phillips Brewery stage.  Friday night at 9PM.  After DJ Anger… and later that night; Michael Rault then one of our favourites at the Zone, Toronto’s Ko takes the stage.  Boitano says that Broken Social Scene ends just as we start… so I get if you have them as a “must see!” but maybe you’ll truly endeavour to bee-line to Phillips to catch the end of our set.  We’d really love to see some friendlies in the audience.

For our set… we are thinking that we’ll mainly try and focus on Modern Rock Remixes (Think Boitano’s Mixtape) to keep us on point for people that come to check us out.  That said… well I love my modern electronic stuff from M83 and the new Neon Indian.  I’ll try to squish them in if I can… early in the set.

I did fin a monster remix of the True Blood soundtrack!  Heavy electronic… and Vampires!  Oh My!

Savage.  I heard that jammer on the XM Alt Nation remix show on Saturday night.  DJ Liquid also played this remix from Oasis.

Oasis – “Wonderwall” (Figure Drumstep edit)

I’ll be choosing about half the songs so I want to include M83‘s “Midnight City” because I am obsessed.

Another song I am enjoying is Neon Indian’s “Polish Girl.”

I also have a remix of Two Door Cinema Club‘s “What You Know.”

OK so that is almooooooost 30 minutes.  Any requests?  And before you ask, yes I have made a commitment to end the set with Brian McNight’s 1999 slow jam anthem “Back At One.” (uhhhh if Boitano will let me and the people don’t have a revolution against me).

Right, requests… whaddya got?

Go with yourself.

Coral and I just got back from our holiday to Kelowna and the Shuswap.  Waiting for me in my email inbox was this most excellent highlight from the website, Texts From Last Night:

(601): Here’s my recipe for happiness. Go get a pen. 1. smoke a bowl 2. put on explosions in the sky 3. take a bath. Do this for about 1 hour or until all your problems go away.

That is nice… maybe less nice (but I watched the trailer anyways) while trolling TFLN, I came across the website for the movie I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell.  I wonder if a Tucker Max movie is really necessary for modern society?  ahhh, who am I kidding, of course it is.

The big story ’round these parts (aside form Coral’s recent fascination with old Felicity episodes) is that… Coral was laid off at the government. boooo

There is hope that she might get placed in another department before December 1st.  Thou, to be honest we’re not sure what would be better?  Working for the government is a pretty cherry gig.  Coral makes a good wage and the work is well suited for a mother…. however the job contributes to a lull in Coral’s energy to seek what she wants in life.  The layoff might be the necessary to put her on track to go out and get her dreams.

Coral and I were sitting on the deck of her father and future step-mother’s house in Westbank over looking Lake Okanagan and thinking that one day we’d like to live on a lake and have an out door kitchen and I’d cook and grill food for us all day.  I’d have a rack filled with different woods for their smoke properties to infuse into the foods.  And we’d have a boat, Coral wants one of those ski boats with the speakers that shoot overtop where you attach the toe rope and have your wake boards mounted.  As comfortable as our life is now, that fantasy can never happen.  But it COULD happen… it does seem to happen for other people.

The one major wrench it has thrown into our plans is that we were thinking about having another baby and that will have to be shelved for a bit as we decide how we’re going to live.  I am also going to have to find some really steady additional work and/or step up the launch my mobile disco business.

I am confident that we’ll be able to work something out, until then we’ll keep trolling MLS for that perfect ocean/lake front and buying lotto 6/49.

I’d like to end this blog post talking about the band Oasis.  I saw on Mike Devlin’s facebook a link to an article that published the results of an international poll asking modern rockers, what the best song of all time is.  The answer, Oasis’ “Live Forever.”

SWA?

Its a good song, but the BEST song ever?  for shame.

Brandon and Brody from the Evergreen State invited me on their Vodcast Throwing Lemons for a Q&A.

We talk about all sorts of fun things like Grey’s Anatomy, Gossip Girl, Friday Night Lights (ok we talk about TV shows a bunch), Vanilla Pepsi, Pol Plastino, Coldplay vs. Radiohead vs. Oasis, Politics, some radio broadcasting slips in there… good times.

A the five minute mark Brandon says, “OK, final question”… and then the tape rolls like 7 more minutes, so good times.

The boys will post the video of the show on their site later tonight, but if you have the time and/or care, here is the audio from the interview.
