PEACE TO MJ

video

I wrote this jam for Michael Jackson today.
Simone

Color Changing King
oh you my color changing king
i must admit i had my doubts
i wished for more, i wished for more
yeah we wall wished for more
but you gave us quite enough

and from my second story room
i read 300 miles south
they played you loud and danced around
your old stomping grounds
yeah what you gave was quite enough

and i know through out the time
a million empaths wished you'd rest
it's what we had to give with reason
while the rest committed treason
to the color changing king

in your open air prison you chose your food
moved your feet, made gestures crude
no i wouldn't call it captive, but you did
and now you're free

no i wouldn't call it captive, but you did
and now you're free

Comeau, Michael and Azzopardi, Tara

If you live in Toronto Ontario Canada, you're lucky today. The sun is smiling down, it's teeth blinging rays on the greyness that's been for half a year, disappearing the cold. Look to a vicious Spring, as insidious and all pervasive as its predecessor, the name of whom we need no longer curse.

If you live in Toronto, take time to check out a bit of Michael Comeau and Tara Azzopardi's work at this gallery, where there is a group show. If you live here, you probably have Michael and Tara's work for ages on the streets for years- Michael's the printer who's inspired a generation of new printers and new work from these new generations of kids who are drawing like him and printing around town - but his shows are less frequent than many and he isn't mangled in the interweb by his own intent, and so it's lucky to be in his real physical vicinity, for you get to see it all in real life, vivid, and really weird. Tara Azzopardi's drawings are beautiful and creepy, and the ones shown are in part drawn from the Missed Connections section of craigslist. She's more on the net so if you're into it search her. As if you want my words to describe visual art. snore. Go look.

Mortimer the Album by Mortimer the Band, featuring Mortimer's Theme

Little-known work by $100 Bassist Paul James Mortimer, and a major impact on the band's sound today. The second track, "Dragons Guard the Gates", was the original inspiration for the the B-side to "14th Floor".

We're hoping to bring attention to some of Paul's earlier projects on this blog, stay tuned!

Indie Awards Nomination


You can look at it here.
The picture is by Rick White from our last session. It went really good - the steak and mushrooms were amazing and the tracks came out almost as well. It could have been the food, or the mood, but somehow we all became very disproportionate to eachother.
