I go through little phases where I love and then love less… the Arcade Fire‘s The Suburbs record.  Right now, it is back to friends on.  Friends way on.

Sometimes it just takes a lyric to get me to get interested in a song and I heard it listening to the Arcade Fire’s title track the other day on the radio.

“So can you understand?
Why I want a daughter while I am still young
I wanna hold her hand
and show her some beauty
before this damage is done.”

Wow right?

Listening to that song the other day while driving gave me goose bumps.  And its funny because I have listened to not only the record, but that song in particular… infinity times… but just the other day those lines jumped out of my speakers and into my head.

Arcade Fire – “The Suburbs”

I love the entire concept of this album as a “letter from the the suburbs.”  Having spent my formative years trolling the streets of Coquitlam (a suburb of Vancouver) so many themes of the record hold elemental truths for me.  Like the ideas of the song “The Suburbs (continued).

“If I could have it back
All the time that we wasted
I’d only waste it again
If I could have it back
You know I’d love to waste it again
Waste it again and again and again

I’ve got to ask
Sometimes I can’t believe it
I’m moving past the feeling again
Sometimes I can’t believe it
I’m moving past the feeling again
Sometimes I can’t believe it…”


Some interesting and exciting news today.  An artist had to cancel at this year’s Rifflandia Festival and so DJ Boitano and myself were asked to DJ.

We’ll be operating as “Zone DJs Jeremy & Boitano” and you can find us Friday, September 23rd on The Phillips Brewery Stage.  I do believe the idea for the set will be modern rock remixes.

We just got added today so that means our set is in a week and half!  We’ll be preparing a setlist this week and we’re both pretty jazzed.  It should be a great party and I hope that if you’re reading this blog, then that means you’ll care enough to make the time to join us.

Go with yourself.
