If You Complain Once More, You'll Meet An Army Of Me


Spent the weekend doin' a little CMW-ing. In fact, I saw a band at the Bovine on Friday that I liked so damn much, I went to see 'em again the next day at Wrongbar.

Maybe I also developed a girl crush. Maybe two. And maybe I proposed.

Maybe.


I consider it my first proper weekend back in Toronto. Y'know, one where I didn't just spend all my time unpacking and trying to organize all my crap into my li'l apartment.

I miss seeing live bands at different venues, and forgot how much I dig it.

I have a feeling my concert calendar is gonna get full fairly quickly.



Problem is, I've been so busy that it's been a long time since I've gone out two nights in a row. It was almost sad how tired and old it made me feel by Sunday.

I'm not a spring chicken anymore, guys. The days of going out every night til 5am are so long gone, I can hardly remember 'em. (Blame the booze if you must. I blame late-twenties senility. And maybe that voodoo curse that was once put on me.)

I hope to hell that I'm not getting boring and overly normal.


...nah.

I'm not.

What is Leah doing to you? Is this how cousins roll?

You'll know when you start getting boring/normal when putting serious consideration in to what tone of beige slippers suit you best.

The beige curse is a bajillion times worse than any voodoo curse, and I've had a few.

p.s Long time reader, zero commenter. This be the popping of thy commenting cherry! "POP!"

Kris said...

CourneysDudeFace - Yes. That is how we roll. Perhaps we roll differently than other cousins. That's likely.

John - I don't have beige slippers, so I think I'm good for now! Glad to see ya commenting, pop pop pop!

You? Normal? Nope, can't see it. Ha ha!

BK said...

Congratulations on the new abode. Now that you are to return to the tawdry nightlife of drunken debauchery, let's see the caliber of your karaoke skills.... (w/vlog of course, still pics just don't convey as well).That'd be some entertaining content.I've got to read back through your old posts and see how this came about, as I gather you also found yourself some employment to finance this venture.

Dude how can you not mention the bands name, that is like journalista sacrilige (sort of like probably misspelling sacrilige), but I forgive you. If you could pull a name out of the night's fog, that would be feean tyastic.

5 am? When I was your age we made it all the way to the next 5 PM before calling it a night. Or so I'm told--I don't remember much of that era.

Johnny said...

Speaking of agedness, I will hit the grand old age of 32 tomorrow. I feel there needs to be some sort of milestone for every year. 16 is the year of sex, 17 is the year of driving, 18 is the year of drink/porn/smoking, 21... errr... is the year to be elected mayor. I broke a couple of these, not the first one though... (Damn you Duck Hunt!)

As for 32, the only one I could think of is... being the year to inappropriately touch someone half your age and not receive a prison sentence. Yay!!!

As I said to someone yesterday "It's about the small victories!".

What's next? I would suggest the next age of significance being 40, where you're officially ignored on all dating websites.

Kris said...

screetus - Could never happen, right? ;)

BK - Yeah, I haven't done any Trawnna karaoke since I've been back. In order to not kill everyone's eardrums, I'd have to stay fairly sober when I videotape that. We'll see how that pans out.

ghost - You aren't boring. I promise ya.

post - They're called the Pack A.D. I meant to mention them, but sometimes things slip my mind. Ok, things usually slip my mind.

Keir - You're hardcore. Or no, that'd make you more than hardcore... metalcore? I gotta figure this one out.

Johnny - In order to not ever be ignored on a dating website, just become a chick. That'll never fail. As soon as ya sign up, there'd be 400 msgs waiting for you and ya may or may not wanna pull out your hair post haste. Wouldn't that be a fun 40? :)

Kris said...

I'll be happy to see 'em again! Are you a Torontonian, poet?

11:57 poet said...

Ya I live in T oh. My name is Dee. And I am sneaky. You may have heard of me. I have a place downtown on college st.

I will consult my trusty NOWgazine about concert listings. Did you notice the Pixies are coming, oh fuck ya! Oh double fuck ya with banilla ice cream and some sherry on top.

Kris said...

I know, are tickets sold out? Someone told me they were. But people lie.

Pixies poet said...

I don't know if they're outed yet. I'm mildly retarded with planning concerts so that is highly possible. I may just cry if I can't see them play, 'The happening' and 'Los Angeles'. And if I do see them play, I'll probably tear up from joy. Either way I'm crying. Oh Jimminy, here come the water works.

That deleted one was me. Fake account for a book I was writing. Sorry.

Anyway, as you can see, fatally un-metalcore. But thanks for humoring me.

Kris said...
