I wanna

rush right outta my skin in.

Gotta hold of Halfway to Hell yesterday. It’s in my hot little hands, and now it’s in my hot little cd player, putting ideas in my hot little head, making me, pretty hot, so thank god it’s cool outside.

Yesterday was kinda surreal, a change of pace for sure. It was nice not to be the one holding the camera for a change, and it was neat to work with pros. Not that I’m not professional, but I don’t get paid to wield a camera.

I loved the piece. I was sad they cut Fox out, and they left out most of the guys personalities. I mean, they came out on the concert footage (that would be me handywork), but that’s just one aspect of these guys.

I have to say this album is more serious than anything else the Tards have put out to date, but hell, it’s still a shitload of fun. So ya, Halfway to Hell is a shitload of serious fun.

Favorites include (longtime waiting for this now) You’re a man’s man… baby (totally 70’s sex-rock, I mean it’s got Le perfectchk-a-pow), and new loves Oshawa, I should have lied, I call her Talli, Better me than you, I WANNA (and trust me… I really WANNA), you win you lose, and 3Tards very own punk rock girl… seems lotsa
punk rock outfits singing about punk rock girls these days, although this one has the benefit of the unique blend of Keith’s heavy drive on drums (he’s like bricks bouncing off, and with the meter he makes
perfect time). John even manages a 50’s-ish drive-in lilt, and you have some signature Moe Berg on the melodies and guitars. This all lends this punk rock girl a little more weight and substance, but just
as many frills, than any other fluff.

My favorite part of the Rogers interview had to be the snippets from the councillors. I can’t understand councilor John Henry’s concern for the Cenotaph. If he’d seen (or understood, or bothered to get to know) me, or any of my gang, he’d know that we are all about respect. Hell… you don’t get alot of soundbites on tv, and mine is all about “respect, openness, overcoming difficulties…. willingness”

I find it hard to believe sometimes that he and his gang are about respect, although they claim to be.

But I’m not one to paint everyone with the same brush, and I’ll leave it at that. I was most amused by Councilor Cullens quote. What she said took alot of balls. Most of the time we all walk around pretending like there is no glass ceiling… when indeed there is… everywhere around us we are surrounded by glass…ceilings, walls, floors, doors…

and you can’t tell me what she said isn’t true.

The funny part is, and what I’m trying to show, is that John Tard, and myself, and my husband, and a great many of the other people involved in putting this show together for our kids, are middle aged white males (and a smattering of women who could be considered so for our laudy public behavior).

We just look and act like a gang of youths.

This concert is going to be the shit.
