About

This is my Tumblr; it used to be about Ottawa. I"m moving to Toronto, so it's now about stuff going on in Toronto including punk/hardcore shows, community events and hockey.

What’s going on AUGUST 8, 2014

Out of Order, Bourbon DK, Direct Disregard and The Drunken Knights @ Duffy’s Tavern (1238 Bloor Street West)

This should be a fun show.  The only reason I WOULDN’T go would be to save money.  I guess it will depend on my mood.  Here’s what Facebook has to say about this show: 

Out of Order//Bourbon DK//Direct Disregard//The Drunken Knights//True Grit Oi

19+ doors at 8:30 //10$ cover

Unfortunately, the Traditionals can no longer play on August 8th, but they do want to come back to town some other night.  There will still be 5 bands playing,some special guest will be there, they haven’t played Toronto in a long time and you don’t want to miss it…you will have to be there to find out. ” (spelling mistakes edited by me)

Nashville Pussy, Catl & Fifth on the Floor @ the Bovine Sex Club (542 Queen St W)

I felt kind of compelled to at least mention this show.  I know I’m not going; Nashville Pussy are awesome, but I don’t know if ANY original members are left.  There’s little information on the Facebook page, but if this is your kind of thing, I’m sure you’ll have a blast!

C(o)unt Down

So after just over 11 months in Windsor, I am now counting down to the move to Toronto.  I now get to finish packing, study and try and do all the “Windsor things” I never bothered doing.  So far I’ve got:

1.  Eat at Tunnel BBQ so my father stops asking if I ate there.

2.  Go back to Detroit one last time; maybe visit the D.I.A. and go to a Tigers’ game.

3.  Hang out with Windsor buddies.

4.  I can’t think of anything else.

18 April 14

So on May 1st, the countdown to leaving Windsor begins.  I’m going to talk about that more at a later date, once things are more official.  For now, I’m enjoying the long weekend and some play offs hockey.  

Alain treated me with blue Skittles and Loco Taco Dorito chips.  This may not seem like a big deal, but in 1994, Taco Bell came out with Taco Supreme Doritos and my life wasn’t the same.  I was heart broken when they stopped making them.  And yes, I tried the Pizza Hut Doritos, the Taco flavoured Doritos, the Loco Taco taco and anything else you can imagine.  But nothing tasted like these bad boys:

Until Loco Taco Doritos came out.  I waited 20 years and I finally got my chips back.  Awesome!

Anyways, the Habs are playing tonight, Good Friday.  30 years ago, the Habs played the Nordiques on Good Friday, leading to the infamous Good Friday Massacre.  EVERYBODY’S fighting everybody!  If you’ve never heard of this, then shame on you/read about it on Wikipedia here.

HAPPY FAMILY DAY!

May your cats/kids/loneliness keep you warm!  I’m watching Cops and dealing with tummy issues with tea.

UPDATE

Haven’t been posting much/been super busy doing stuff like:

•Working, a lot

•Studying for bar exams

•Having stomach pain

•Touring the new Windsor Regional Jail

•Visiting the dentist

•Trying to set up TV Guide Dixie for XBMC

•Planning my trip to Chicago with Maxxx

•Supporting Alain’s decision to join the band Minors

And other stuff!  I’ve updated the listings, but because it’s cold and stuff, I’m not going out much.  

19 January 14

I think I’m finally better!

I’ve had stomach flu since last Friday, which SUCKED!  I haven’t done much since then.  There were shows and other stuff, but I missed it all.  My buddy Lauren, who’s in Toronto, is going to be induced into labour any second now.  It’s pretty exciting!  Also, it’s my birthday tomorrow, so maybe her baby and I will share a birthday. That would be pretty neat!  I have no plans for my birthday.  I was going to go out for dinner last night, but was way too sick.
