Tim and Dave from The Stills dropped by the Zone Afternoon show today before the first of two show they would be (are currently) performing in Victoria.  Last night they opened for Sam Roberts and Mike Devlin had some good things to say.

We jibber jabbered about, you know stuff.  I asked Dave why he thinks the song “Being Here” has really grabbed people’s attention and Dave gave a pretty perfect answer, but I didn’t really give him a chance to get the joke in.  Listening back I now hear what might have been a rad joke if I hadn’t stepped on his reply, so that is my bad.  The boys then perform “Being Here” and it ends with Tim and I talking about Nine Inch Nails and their insane LED light show.  Tim knows the man that designed NIN live light show experience!

Day 03

Day number three of single Dad is winding down to an end.  Another glorious challenge.  I really have so much more respect for ZooeyJane and Huckdoll after kinda trying my hand at single parenting.  Mads was a wee bit ornery this morning and wouldn’t nap or even really let me put her down.  Nana came early because Fridays are an epic challenge as it is, getting all my work done… so I had a quick shower and shave then off to the radio factory.  Had a good show and came home to take Nana out for a birthday dinner and Madelyn had/has spots all over her torso?  SWA?

I’m no Grey’s Anatomy doctor so I have no idea what is wrong.  She was n a much better mood when I got home (Nana does that to her) we decided dinner wouldn’t hurt.  Auntie Alyx joined us and we punched back some Greek food.

Brought Madelyn home for a bath and just to she why you never leave a baby unattended in the tub, while sitting there in the water, she’d get herself worked up and then like fall over in the water.  She’d freak and almost freeze up in the water and couldn’t right herself.  If I wasn’t there, like right there beside her, that would be it.

Madelyn likes bath time so she was ready for bed.

I packed up the Jeep while she was sleeping because we are off to visit Grandma Mom and Grandpa Jack tomorrow.  Day Three is done.

Baby is still alive.

Happy 24th Birthday to my sister Andrea!

I got some fun emails today and I’ll go over those in a moment but first I want to talk about Capital Rock City and The Gaslight Anthem and some other random music notes.

Capital Rock City has been a bit delayed.  Sara wants the show to be super duper before it ends up on the Zone’s website.  So I am going to “test” it out here on http://www.jeremybaker.ca and your feedback will be paramount.  Computer Guy at http://www.vicstream.com has be clutch in setting up some internet server space to host the show and the technical support needed.  There is this really groovy media player at Yahoo that I LOVE.  When I figure out how to use it and how to easily upload audio then I think I can take the blog to another level.

David Eleanor dropped the Gaslight Anthem‘s new record The ’59 Sound on me yesterday and it is living on my iPod and in the Jeep right now.  Sounds too much like Bruce Springsteen, Killers circa Sam’s Town and a dash like The Hold Steady.  All good things to me.  Solid disc.

The record has almost knocked Frightened Rabbit from the top spot on the musical chart of my heart.  Almost.  I am trying to track down Glasvegas‘ new record as well.  If I can get a copy from work then that will save me the $9.99 from iTunes.  Glasvegas’ interview scheduled for this afternoon has been shifted to tomorrow.  If/when I figure out the media player, I’ll post some audio here.

The Stills will be live on the ZAS on Friday afternoon right after Connect Three. and as above, maybe I can learn how to post some highlights on thee blog.

!AND THIS JUST IN! (like seriously while typing, Sara popped her head in the door)…  Sam Roberts is likely live on the ZAS tomorrow or Friday AND #27 D Lloyd from the Victoria Salmon Kings on Thursday around 3PM… yikes busy couple days.

i was freaking disgusted that the zone would even consider playing this shit that makes my ears bleed! i went to radiohead at the thunderbird stadium and it was the best show ive ever seen, and hearing that same amazing music played with gangsta rap over it talking about how hes got to murder his homie is really a sad attempt on trying to make jay-z’s crappy “art” listenable so for the love of god stop ruining an amazing modernrock band with a crappy re mix. this is the zone…not 95.3, i mean come on! whats next nelly and flava flav getting jiggy over deathcab for cutie

Rap = crap indeed!

Hey Jeremy,
Thanks for that, I am gonna try it this weekend. On your blog recipe you don’t have cream or milk listed in the ingredients- was that a mistake?
Cheers,
Kelsey

Hey Kelsey, this the recipe you’ll want to try first.
A Japanese Village Type Steak Sauce
makes a bunch, so consider halving the recipe

1 cup toasted sesame seeds
1 1/3 cup Vegetable oil
1 cup low sodium Soy Sauce
1/3 chopped white onion
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

Vancityrockgirl would recommend trying something healthier than a cup and a third of vegetable oil.  She says you could even halve the amount of oil and it *should* still be cool.

Coral took off to Paris today at some bizarre time so it is just me and Maddy (and Nana of course helping out HUGE!).  We crawled around.  Practiced our walking and then took Auntie Andrea to Red Robin for her birthday.  I think Monk’s two top front teeth are coming it!

Baby is still alive.
