Bend It Like Bauer

I heard through the grape vine that poop is the new pink! Whenever I hear that saying (grape vine) I think of those creepy California Rasins that sang songs, and you would get the box of their rasin in your halloween bag (why people thought as children we loved rasiens is still a mysterty too me), I felt like I was eatting those little characters out of a box.

It has just been brought to my attention (stereogum.com) that FINALLY after five years Veruca Salt is releasing a new album on September 12. The title being IV to represent that it is the fourth album. However, I don’t understand why Louise Post would do this, I mean Veruca Salt is completely a different band then when “American Thighs” and “Eight Arms to Hold You” meaning the only member that was apart of VS was Post. I love this band dearly, and I have always loved Loiuse style of writing, but I wish that the album name was different. Then again, what the fuck does it really member? I am still going to buy it.

Veruca Salt was one of those staples in my life, for awhile I thought that women in music were kind of the lame slog, sad music, so I wasn’t huge into it. I was shoping at a cd store in Saskastoon, must have been thirthteen at the time, and saw the album “American Thighs” it was like 7.99, or something. I remember I always thought that Veruca Salt was something to do with the Velvet Underground, to this day I can not tell you why I thought this, but I bought the cd. I would listen to that album of repeat. I remember we went up to Utah to visit my mom’s family and we were driving through the graveyard that her grandmother was buried (or it was a pet semertary) and the song that I remember was “Fly” which forever was my favorite track, though it was soon replaced with “Number One Blind.”

Back to what I was saying about woman in the music industry, there was Hole, though I hadn’t discovered “Live Through This,” but I owed all The Cranberries albums and thought Sheryl Crow was awesome, and “crazysexycool” was the great thing since sliced bread (note: I hate that saying I wish that I never said it). Veruca Salt opened this door to bands like Babes In Toyland, Belly and Tanya Donelly, L7, Pet, Letters To Cleo (who’s drummer joined Veruca Salt, who is now lead singer of American Hi-fi, Stacey Jones) The Breeders, Pj Harvey, Juliana Hatfield and etc, and this chick could rock, not just rock but FUCKING rock.

This is what started it, this one little band that in 1997 broke my heart when band member and best friend forever Nina Gordon and Louise Post called it quits and made me doubt all my current friendship last (I still have two from when I lived in Saskatoon, but hey I moved around a lot and discovered hip hop and writing pornographic love stories.) But all good thing come to an end…sometimes.

Ps I never discovered hip hop, I just love the “Ridin” song, and T.I. Also if anyone that reads this care Jason Collette has an amazing solo album out that feature some of Broken Social Scene, Amy Millian (Stars, who has an amazing solo out as well), Leslie Feist (MUSHBOOM) and Emily Haines (of Metric). Fuck Canada when did we get such amazing music scene… Nickleback screwed us up for awhile.

I have ran into some major techinalogy problems in the last week. First off, my little (stupid) computer wasn't by my side for 2 entire weeks, due to the fact that everything on my computer disappeared in the black hole of space. Lucky for me I know some good computer guys that got my baby working again. However, after a day of get use to my computer being back in action, it decided to start turn off when it felt like it. One thing I have realized is that I will never own a PC again.

This morning while driving into town I realized that iPod was having a mental breakdown. And was doing the same thing as my computer. I figured that I will charge it up again and see what happens there.

It is about 3 weeks until I return back to the comforts of school, which will be a welcomed breath of fresh air considering working for 4 months and being in Winnipeg, though I have had one of the best summers in awhile, but we are starting to wrap things up, and what better way to wrap things up then head to the greatest city in Canada for labor day. That city being the one and only Regina (which most kids would slip out Vagina because it was too funny not to say). I had this hatred of Regina up until last year, I reliaze that the city and people are pretty nice if you give it a chance. Anyways I am pretty excited to get back to the basics, and even more excited to start the boarding season.

The last two day I have fallen in love with Borat. I never thought I would, because I am not a huge Ali G fan, but I think i have to re-think it because it is basically some of the funniest shit ever. I cant across his character Bruno, who might be funnier then Borat in my book.

Alright so when I find a band that I like I play them to death. Today I have three bands that I have fallen head over heels for. First would be The Pink Spiders, which I think are deliously form, and a different poppier punk.

Second is a band that I have been over looking the last 2 years, because I didnt like there EP very much. Hellogoodbye, they just released "Zombies! Aliens! Vampires! Dinosaur!" i think the titled of the album is what drew me in, i bought it and heart it to pieces.

The last band is The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, they are kind of your typical emo-type band but their song are pretty interesting and I get sucked into them. Good stuff.
