Honestly. Halifax, darling, I love you. But what the hell is going on? Your seemingly sorry excuse for a government has hired a bunch of incompetent nincompoops to clear the sidewalks. They are simply atrocious. Everywhere I go I see senior citizens of this great city falling over, I see people twisting ankles, and today Grace BROKE HER GODDAMN FOOT. Not even the foot she broke skateboarding this summer - THE OTHER DAMN FOOT, PEOPLE!
I don't know what the hell is going on with whoever was contracted to clear the sidewalks but they had better get their act together. This is fucking ridiculous. There should be workers on the sidewalk chipping away at the ice. What the hell do you think we're paying for? A little sprinkle of a handful of gravel?
Get to work, you lazy shits.
First thing I must say - if you are going to be in or around Halifax on Friday then holy monkey you should come to our show at Gus'. Corey Isenor will be playing, there'll be pizza, it's gonna be an all around general A+ treat situation. We will be playing two sets of high octane cowboy surf bliss and may even unveil a new song or two! We'll also have dope t-shirts for sale. But hey now, that's enough advertising.
What's new with me? I've been doing a hell of a lot of writing which is really nice, and exciting because I feel I am getting ever closer to starting to get a new album together. That being said, I still feel like Deserter is fresh and kickin', and in the spring we are going to make some new videos for some of the tracks so keep your eyes peeled!
And like, hey guys, thanks for being so totally tubular and buying up so much of our vinyl. We had no idea it would sell like this! We are getting ready to order a new shipment which is very exciting - and on top of that I'm willing to spread some rumours around that we will be issuing my first album (Willie Stratton) on vinyl as well! So, fellow collectors, get ready to do some collectin'!
Around this time every year I start freaking out about how excited I am for spring and summertime. Oh the festivals! The parties! The sun that stays in the sky just that much longer! See? There's a whole lotta pining going on up in here. I'm excited to do some touring this summer now that the Boarding Party is more of a solid thing. And like, lake swimming and surfing and icecream. I could cry.
I never have any idea what to write in these posts, but people seem to read them. So forgive me, Internet.
Comment below for some items of discussion you'd like me to include? Yeah! Let's get a dialogue going here.
That's all for now,
Keep it real,
Keep on rockin' in the free world,
Enjoy free stuff especially t-shirts,
