Absurd Vancouver Property of the Week (June 7, 2012).


studio bloggin

Todays class was awsome! I was so happy to meet Mike and Janet. 

Just so you all know, right after they left, I was on my phone texting the guys in Grizzly Bones. 

They got sooo excited haha. I also got to tell them about the last couple little projects we have been doing. It didnt take much to explain how i can directly apply this knowledge to the band. 

I am sitting in the studio watching four guys try to explain what they mean. They are trying to write new music. I always love sitting in while they do this. Not just for the comedy of it (sarcasm seems to be a must) but as they stumble through ideas great scraps of music form out of no where. There is basically two rough ideas with two or so riffs. They are cutting peices out from each and then trying find that sweet sweet hybrid.

haha Kevin (the guitarist) just said ,”man like what we need is like something that comes out like umm, like this kindaaa….”

then Andy (also guitar) cut in,” we NEED a reach around!”


maybe thats how i will leave you 





Wednesday Night

AM planning on starting to work on the “super zombies” budget project. I will i promise myself.

but first i think i will do a little blogging….


Right now i am listening to a great band that i saw back in September.


kind of a hipster name in my opinion but whe you got chops like these guys, i find it easy to look past petty name hang ups. haha.

They opened up for Hollerado (also a good band) at the Vogue theatre. I was blown away by how cool and original their music was.


they had a smoke machine 😀

Both Hollerado and Young Rival are from eastern Canada, Hamilton I do believe. I took a peek at young rival’s website and found quote that i found pretty accurate “It’s like the Beach Boys meet the Sex Pistols”. I will post the gooveshark search that i did. Why dont you take a listen to some of their tracks. Even the first track up there emulates the quote above.




ps. I have had trouble lately with the dreaded Itunes. I cant seem to open up the program. Its a very simple problem but ive done all that I can. I do no want to abandon Itunes now wince i  have spent SOOOOOO long compiling my library….

I have redownloaded the program, and tried opening it up from the start/programs/itunes method. not really sure what else to try. any smart people out there who can help me?
