Look ma, no links!

Saw the Scottish Olympic gymnastic team last night. They play good music.

Franz Ferdinand's stage set up was pretty classy, and made for a lot of high jumps, scissor kicks and the most reckless disregard for a drum kit I've seen since Spinal Tap.

I love seeing shows at the Orpheum. They understand the likelihood that audiences may doze off during more erudite fare, so they even took care to offer something nice for the heads rolled back.

Thankfully, Franz is a potent cure for narcolepsy, as well as that sickness where you hear everything perfectly. Yeah I'm deaf. But hearing "What You Meant" live is worth it.

Arcade Fire, the bar has been set. Your move.

Oh, and for those on Burrard and 11th the other day, your eyes did not deceive you, that was the worst parallel parking job in the history of mankind.

Don't tease us with "the worst parallel parking job in the history of mankind"... for those of us 1000kms away it looked fine... I want proof next time. Lazy bastard.

Is proof that it literally destroyed my power steering, rendering it virtually undriveable until I can get it into the repair shop enough?

I heard from a friend who saw them a couple weeks ago. They said it was a pretty 'canned' show, and franz looked like he was just going through the motions.

Sounds like he did a little red bull before yours.though - which is good. Still waiting for illegal ipod recordings...NUDGE NUDGE!
