I just strongly, strongly dislike FSRZ. There are not a lot of bands I have an outright disdain for, but they are one.

It probably wouldn't be so bad if I never saw them live. It was partially a case of "it's not the band, it's the fans", but it was also very much the band. They were like if Andrew WK fronted a band that was equal parts Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Limp Bizkit, and I mean that in the worst way possible. 

It's kind of the same way that Tom gets mad as to why Hey Ocean has so many fans.

@switters. Hey Ocean was an interesting show. I definately felt like one of the oldest people there. There were so many people with pony shirts, and one girl asked if she could take my spot overlooking the stage for a second so that she could take off her shirt and throw it at David Vertesi (who didn't even notice).

FSRZ is so bad, they took an amazing drummer* and made him play bass. BASS!

I saw hardcore band Guy Smiley (they're from Winnipeg! I think) once and my friend somehow took her bra off and flung it at the singer without any of us even noticing how she got out of it! The singer probably was like, "uhhhhhhh, ok". We were underage.... like 18 or so at the time.

One of the last shows that Treelines played, a bra was thrown on stage and landed on Steve's bass/strumming arm. His reaction was priceless, trying to get it off of him as fast as possible, like it was on fire or was burning his skin. 

It was an all ages show, too, sooo....

Terrible, just terrible, no really terribly awewsome. Both Loon Choir and Shred Kelly put on fantastic shows, what an awesome duo.

Gave a hug to Kathleen and had some nice banter, with her, brother Brian, and Tim and Sage from Shred Kelly.  Picked up 2 cds from Loon Choir and the latest from Shred Kelly.

@smallie - El Trompo was good, we didn't get to sit outside cause it was too busy, but I had the beef Alambres (Fajitas), and Zoila had chicken tacos. For drinks I had a Lime Margharita and Negra Modello, and Zoila had a Mango Margharita.

Cyclist should not be on Broadway. Period! (And this come from a guy who doesn't own a car and commutes by bike)

howdy folks!

I echo Jdurley's sentiment about that Summer Festival Playlist. was great last year, great again this year! seriously, that playlist sustained me through so many crashingly boring retail job shifts.

also, I'm going to see Hey Ocean and Wake Owl, both for the first time, at Ottawa Folk Fest this year! yay!

deiru

my coworker lives downtown, on one of the roads that got a bike lane, and to say she hates it would be an understatement, and she thinks Gregor is a tool.

@ Iceman: ugh, so much, here in the Nation's Capital. argh! In Montreal they don't do that as much I found, however they are much more inclined to honk/yell angry things at people on bikes for being slower than them. 'Cause they don't come equipped with motors and such, you know. argh!

re: bike lanes. I am so excited that Calgary is getting bike lanes. There is one that goes by my work!

Ottawa's got a lot of lovely bike paths which are great, but as far as bike lanes go, it's ridiculous. there are a few streets (busy ones too) with bike lanes in the MIDDLE of the road. so with moving cars on either side. WHY.

That handful of bikes that follow some kind of odd amalgamation of vehicle and pedestrian road laws anger everyone and that anger often gets redirected at bike lanes.

I hate it when I see people biking the wrong way down one way streets or biking on sidewalks even. They give us a bad name.

@ FT: although, there are some places, at least in my hometown, where you simply cannot bike on the road at certain times of the day, A) because there's no bike lane, even though it's a main drag and B) because people will actually not care if they hit you on that street. it is a very scary business. I agree that cyclists should not use sidewalks, but sometimes, it seems to be choice between getting hit or breaking a bylaw. yikes.

@ftom. I would agree with you there, except that in the last week, I've had to bike (slowly) on sidewalks downtown as my normal bike path is closed due to the flooding and drivers downtown are going to kill me.

@FT 135 - True, bike couriers seem to violate every rule of the road common sense and safety. In the process they both terrify and enrage many drivers.
