I had the very distinct pleasure of singing on Jim Wards New EP recently. The EP is called In the Valley, On the Shores. You can go to www.tembloroso.com and name your own price to get a digital copy of the EP or you can pay $7, post paid US/Canada and get a hard copy, the entire month of May!!!!
If you don't know who Jim Ward is go to Wikipedia and look him up. Immediately afterwards you'll be heading to www.tembloroso.com to get his EP. Its beautiful.
And you will not regret it.
I met Jim at a festival in Germany (he did not write a song about it). Then we hung out when his band Sparta were opening for Velvet Revolver in Vancouver a couple years ago now. We have the same birthday and we basically became best friends that night.
So from one friend to another bunch of friends, I'm telling you my friend Jim has made a really amazing EP. Go get it!
i won't lie, watching the calgary
flames be eliminated last night from the playoffs was upsetting. i
blame the chocolate ice cream and sunstroke for the fretful sleep and
my subsequent cranky mood. today, i feel no anger towards the chicago franchise. in fact, i'm...happy for you chicago. and your cities people. may you Zamboni the shit out of vancouver in the next round.
1. apparently tegan and sara has a secret metal/hardcore fan base. the pre order for our metal tshirt...outrageously popular. you bangers! we're delighted, obviously. so, knowing now what you REALLY want, please expect a dramatic genre leap and prepare your devil horns for the next record. we just might sprinkle some death metal in with our pop. death pop? anyone?
2. i experienced heart pounding pride when AN HORSE performed on LETTERMAN last week. i stayed up way past my bed time and i set my alarm just in case i nodded off. watching kate and damon on my tv was the closest thing to an out of body experience i've had to date. i can safely say i understood the nervous pride of a parent during the entire two and half minutes they were slaying the television audience. hooray AN HORSE!
i love all of these bands. if i wasn't locked up in tegans basement writing hip hop hooks i would be hitting the road as a third wheel. that is, of course, if they agreed to let me drive the helicopter and put me up in five star hotels. i mean, they're a great band...but i ain't driving around in no compact car AN HORSE. hell no. i realize you're wee sized people, but you gotta think big to roll big.
