Second time's a charm...

At least the previous version of this post didn't delete itself when I was almost done. Oh wait..

The past week has been pretty crazy. Good bands, good bros, and good times.

Post softball appetizer plate @ Hooligan's. Something for everyone.

Toby downing some liquid courage before hitting up the karaoke machine.

Strike Anywhere @ The Royal Albert .

Such a good band, with great stuff to say. They even managed to get a poster for their LP "Exit English" into the greatest movie of all time.

" I pledge allegiance to the world, until the last lock breaks none of us are free."

Even Sarde had a good time!

Ruiner/Braindead @ Rudolph Rocker CC, Winnipeg

The only one that matters. For those not from Winnipeg, you can find out more here.

Pre-show meal @ Mondragon. Southern Fried Tofu Sandwich w/ vegan caesar salad.


Braindead. Stoked to see them again later this summer here.

Ruiner. Slept on this band pretty hard until recently. Whoops!

"I'm inspired by the fact that I still get out of bed."

Got off work a tad early on Friday (4 hours), so I met up with Rueben and Chris for a nice meal and some shopping.

Got caught outside in a thunderstorm, took a little break when it started to hail.


After a while the hail let up enough to get to the car and get down to business. Everyone walked away with something nice.

Ended the day right with a falafel burger and fries. Yum Yum!

Weekend (and change) in pictures.

Die Young/Withdrawal @ CMU Chapel

Beeps taking a break from making his sign to show me his cash and prizes.

"Ryled Up" by baked goods.

The mosh cannot be taught, it can only be brought.

Go Skateboarding Day/Air Guitar Championships.

Fuel for a good shred.

Lee "I don't wear a shirt Monday-Friday" Tully

Fat Mat doing Razor justice on the invisible axe.

Drew either shitting his pants or ripping Metallica's "Whiplash". Take your pick.

Air-Roadie extraordinaire, Dale Kibbins.

Lazy Sunday.

Pre-ID check tofu scramble at Black Sheep Diner.

My favourite ice cream stop in Winnipeg. Holly had never been, which I felt needed to be rectified. Sub Zero.

"The Raspberry Dream" for me.

"S'mores" for Holly.


Ooooooohh that's nice.

Holly was bummed that her parfait wasn't "never ending".

Summer's here! Eat more ice cream!


Trapped Under Ice - Stay Cold
Killing The Dream - Fractures
Have Heart - Songs To Scream At The Sun
Verse - Aggression
Ten Foot Pole - Rev

I want to jump in a lake...

What better way to celebrate a new camera than getting ice cream?

One of 4 legit places in town.

Treat of the day: Chocolate Cherries Flurry.

Pops was singing karaoke, so Adam (big bro) and I showed up to give some support. Note the name tag.

My dad started getting into LOST pretty recently. Is there a better Father's Day present than blowing his mind with Season 2; Episode 1? Didn't think so. He was stoked.

"Who is that? It looks like it could be Sawyer."

"What?! He's in the hatch?!"

I can't wait to start him on seasons 3 and 4.

"I'll eat your brains and gain your knowledge."

Bros and bands. Seemed like a little roadtrip to Selkirk, MB was in order for Thursday night. The lengthy trek (30 mins) would require a refreshment stop.

Hulk Donut? Who can resist that kind of temptation?

Mind Control played. Total rippers.

"Fuck this place and its moral code. Got the whole world in its sleeper hold."

Sometimes your friend shows up in a 4XL shirt, and a game of "How many dudes can we fit in here?" develops.

The correct answer is 5.

Too bad I was moshing too hard to take good pics of the other bands.

RIP Sleeping Tigers

I am the man who walks alone...

So stoked.

The goodliest...

Gravemaker @ The Royal Albert Arms, Winnipeg. Hardcore lives, but a certain Sunday breakfast buffet in Osborne Village wasn't so lucky.

The Straight Edge @ The Royal Albert Arms, Winnipeg.

Do you like cupcakes? I know I do, and my main man Beeps loves to bake 'em. He is starting to sell his vegan creations at various shows in the city, and they are all delicious. This particular version is a chai cupcake with a vanilla bean "butter" creme icing (if i'm not mistaken).

On a not so vegan note, mac 'n cheese for 7. Hailed as "the best ever" by 6 of the 7, the 7th was pretty drunk and probably said some things he didn't mean. Pictures taken less than 3 minutes apart.

Eat it 'til it's gone.

For the LOST heads.

During the break between seasons 3 and 4 of the greatest show on television (LOST), ABC teamed up with Verizon Wireless and put out 13 mini-episodes called "Missing Pieces" to download with your mobile phone. Nothing too crazy was revealed but there are a few things you pick up on that keep things interesting.

For those that missed it the first time around, here are the links to each one. Hopefully they will help tide you over a bit until next season.

Apparently the user deleted all those videos sometime between when I posted them and now. They are still on youtube, but you gotta do a little more work now. I guess thats the way the cookie crumbles sometimes.
