In honor of the Nein heading up to Canada to rock our friendly neighbors to the north, I thought I'd prepare a list of things I like about Canada.

Some Things I Like About Canada:

Canada was the first place I ever got drunk. My family(aunts, uncles, cousins, etc…) would go to Quebec to skiing every year after Christmas when I was young. One New Year’s Eve my Aunt gave me a glass of champagne to share with my cousins. I went off and downed it, then returned for more. After a few of these trips I was good to go. I walked outside on the ice and it was splendid.

Canada is the first place I ordered a beer. When I was 16, we were back in Quebec again. The drinking age was 18. I went into this place and ordered a beer. They gave it to me. It would be five years before this happened again.

The Kids in the Hall. They started showing this on HBO in the late 80’s. It kicked Saturday Night Live’s ass. Genius.

Neil Young. Duh.

Canadian Football. There’s like 8 teams and two of them are called the Rough Riders and one is called the Argonauts. They kick on third down.

John Candy. Seemed to embody all that is good with humanity.

Steve Nash. Rush. Strange Brew. Margaret Trudeau. Loverboy. Lots of great stuff.

Thanks Canada.


Good luck boys!

When you leave it up to computers.....

They come up with this shit (previously seen in the inbox of Mr. Semiotic Crouton's mail program...all spelling and grammar has been preserved) oddly poetic:

Let's get to the point quick. The Country Bears is one the greatest films of all time. The Country Bears has taught the band so much about our (human) selves. I now pay late tribute to the film (and it's message) by copying a recent thread of A.P. emails regarding a new local band with a whole lotta nerve. Read on!


Guys, there is a Chapel Hill band called
The Country Bears. I saw a flier that said
"country bears" only and a website (
and when I went to it I found out. I guess
we have to play with them.
oh! when i was hanging up nein posters the other
night, i saw a couple flyers that just said "what
is country bears?" so i hung up the nein right next
to that shit, b/c it was fate.
I'm listening to their mp3s right now. Not bad.
Kind of yelly punk rock maybe a little like Les
Savy Fav. Not great, but not bad either.
I just listened to their MP3s. They should be
called the Dischord Records Bears. Get the Bong
back together?!!?
still, i'd be willing to sue them on behalf of
the real bears. you know ted won't stand for this,
and beary? what would happen if beary showed up
expecting to see zed zoober and co.? god damn if we
shouldn't have put together the country bears for
the great cover up and alienated everyone (including
ourselves) there. can you imagine the costumes?
damn it.
You know, I bet Disney is going to be just fine suing
the shit out of them on their own. What is even
better is to show up at this bands show in costume
and sit in the back of the club watching, never speaking
to anyone and then leave angrily. Everytime they play.
Dude, we should get costumes together and show up at the
next Country Bears show and just stand at the back with
arms crossed. I call human/bear identity conflicted
child hero.

[And on a less personal note, I had a heck of a dream last night. My
S. Crouton and I were recording a tribute to the Red Hot Chili
Peppers' "Blood
Sugar Sex Magik," with Bono engineering. Bono was
irritated because The Edge
didn't show up for production on today's
"Breaking the Girl" and "Could Have
Lied." Only in dreams. How's
that for trad bloggin'?]
