holy crap this week
seriously what is going on
i can't even explain it right now except maybe that the universe thinks i need to learn something. i can guess what - something about listening to my instincts? something about, uh, better communication? does the universe want me to get a cell phone? i don't know, but i haven't been this angry/frustrated/worried/tense in ages. and i am usually all those things on a minor level all the time anyway. which is actually probably what the universe is trying to teach me. to let all that just go, b/c there are better things to do with my energy. i guess.
my jaw hurts from the clenching

It's the end of all strain, it's the joy in your heart

and the lyrics too!
ah so great

For good measure: cat blogging

here is a short video of my cat, noam, in the wind of the fan on a hot summer day (he is not allowed to eat my dinner but he is still interested). i can't remember what the music is but it is weird how well it fits.

Mondays are the crazy days these days

hi blog
hi guys
hi monday, which has happened again

so i was thinking and i was talking about blogging and how while i have enjoyed my blogging time on over the course of the last two years, i'm not sure if it's still for me. i'm thesis writing still (to be finished soon, this time for sure) and have this new radio show at ckut that i'm doing - Free Radicals: Science, Culture and Connection - - and am doing/looking out for freelance writing/editing/communications work as well.

there is a certain pressure i feel with to always be focusing solidly on montreal activities/interests. i am just not that solidly focused these days. all i can be is someone living in montreal but not necessarily someone going to montreal events or places and thinking about blogging about them. i have also not been girl about town lately either. what do i have to blog about? more personal or esoteric things that readers of a montreal-focused blog may find not montreal-y enough or too, y'know, editorial.

so i'm going to reboot this blog. because i still like the name and because it's linked to gmail and because it probably features many embarrassing posts from the past that will teach me more about how we are all "always growing" and that life is a "learning process" and that i am "sometimes a bit of a douche."

anyway, but re: the title of this post - mondays are crazy times, i've realized, because i have the radio show at 11:30 am and the morning is spent gearing up for that and afterwards i have to gear down. i thought it'd be a good idea to re-introduce coffee on these mondays mornings. this works, but because last week was so freakin' hot in this town, i did not drink any caffeine at all! (it makes me v warm for some reason, even if it is iced caffeine.) and so this morning i had coffee and it wired the hell out of me. heart going too fast!

obviously it is making me productive though. double-edged sword.

Comets on Fire, Sala Rossa, Montreal, September 2006

Watch the video

So this was an awesome show. My camera's sound remains utter crap, but the idea is that this gives an idea of what things were like, minus the crappy sound, of course.

gushing review here

Chicks in a Cave - Horror Movie, I Love You

I saw The Descent last night. I had gone to the good ol' Montreal F0rum for some comfy-seat, air-conditioned movie time, having not been to the movies in several weeks and feeling sad about that. So I went with a friend to see A Scanner Darkly, which I was prepared for, being kind of a fan of Waking Life and having heard from friends that this was pretty good - not action-packed, but interesting and neat to look at. And that was true. I left the theatre thinking about it, about why the animation (it makes sense though), and about how Keanu has gotten really good at picking the right roles. I did leave the movie feeling kind of stoned though, because the world is not in fact rotoscope animated. It looked weird.

I also left feeling I could watch another movie. This is what happens at multiplexes. I'm sorry, but it's just too easy. So we saw The Descent. And it rocked. So. Awesome. I wrote about it where else but on Midnight Poutine.

Oneness means identifying the source of your vitriol

Saturday morning rant.

aka what happens when i'm woken up at 6:41 a.m. on the weekend and it's not my fault at all except maybe that i chose to live on a main street in a big city but STILL.

aka who's to blaaaame???

at least the street is really really quiet right now. so much so that i can hear the dork owners/managers of the crappy cafe across the street telling someone off. fun!

dear everyone this morning: what the hell is UP with you??
