Half of what I say is meaningless.

A couple days ago, I was able to see this guy (Tony Dekker of those Great Lake Swimmers) play to an audience of two, just Bad Brad Wheeler and myself. I was pretty riveted, I have to say, and mostly forgot I had a video camera in my hands. This was the last of his three songs and, well, this is the one that ended up moving me the most. At the actual concert later, he'd let on that it was supposedly a song he'd been commissioned to write about the architecture in Toronto (the inside joke being that there isn't really any). Still, I didn't let that ruin it for me. I also got to play Tony's taxi cab for a bit, where we talked about the Beatles and how he inherited a rather large vinyl collection, the magnificent White Album being one of those. My remastered copy was sitting in his seat before he was, so it made sense to jaw about it. Want some inside info? Okay then. His very favorite vinyl sequence ever starts with "Martha My Dear" and ends with "Julia." If'n you feel like reading my take on the show, you can go HERE but, if not, at least take the video below in. Maybe a few times.
