Reasons I Hate WestJet

Posted in Random on February 22, 2011 by readmoremusic

1 – only one checked bag.  If I wanted to pay $25 to get something where I’m going, I would have FEDEX’d it and saved myself the trouble of carrying it around all day.

2 – crappy entertainment service.  No on-demand?  Shitty TV?  No thanks.

3 – fake, “friendly” service.  I don’t want someone to tell me a stupid joke or ask me how my day is going.  It’s 5am, how do you think it’s going?  I just want you to get me on my way and leave me alone.

4 – no Aeroplan.  I want that Super Elite status, dammit!

5 -Limited service.  I can only fly to a select number of cities, during a select range of dates, at a select number of times.

6 – it’s not actually cheaper.  That’s the beauty of a two party system in the Canadian flight industry, one price-matches the other.

Now, I will begrudgingly board my WestJet flight.  Never again.

Guess I’ll Start This Again

In the interest of brevity and trying to keep things interesting, I’m going to try this again. While generally feeling like my opinions should be heard by all, I’m never very good at keeping up with stuff like this.

This rather pointless post serves as an iPhone test, most of my photos come via this box anyway.

Please enjoy this blurry, low-res photo of the magic that is Against Me! in a sweaty box in Seattle.

Star Wars and the Internets

*(great band name?)

This post is AWESOME. The Entirety of “Star Wars: a New Hope” in one Facebook Thread.

Whose idea was this anyway?

Usually this blog isn’t really about personal stuff, other than what I find personally interesting. But gollygee, it’s late and I’m not tired.

Let me tell you about my night and how awesome it was. I got to start and end the night with my great bud JK, here on tour just for the night. How such awesome people can come in and out of my life in a night is insane. But I love him dearly.

The meat of that fantastic sandwich was my little muffin Legs destroying her solo debut and a killer set by Birthday Boys. Words cannot express how much I love this band. We had them on Punk Wok and I discovered they are as nice dudes as they are fantastic musicians. Then the Stanfields ended the night with some music to dance around to.

Nights like this make me remember why I do what I do, no matter how much getting up to go to work in 3.5 hours is going to suck. Music transcends all else, and reminds me everyday of the amazing things I have in life, like friends, family, and the Dream. Always, the Dream.

I love and miss you Dan Winnick.

This Again!?

Posted in Random, Videos on October 8, 2010 by readmoremusic

I switched from Blogspot because it annoyed me how YouTube videos always got cut off at the ends.  So here I am.

So I know the last time I wrote was in February. Sure, a lot has happened since then, including a pretty great tour and four months of unemployment/fun/travelling, but that’s all in the past, and I’m about the future, man.

Needless to say, The Album Project is on pause for the unforeseeable future, as all my records are in storage and I live in a closet.

Moving forward though, I guess I will try to make this interesting again.

Here’s an amazing video.
