Wa Me?

There's this Asian restaurant out in West Valley called Wa Me. Without fail, I succumb to my inner dork and shout "Ya You!" There is also an Asian supermarket near this place called Tay Do. I always imagine Buckweat as the greeter there.

Peter O'Toole, in the film The Ruling Class, said something to the effect that when he prayed he eventually realized that he was God because he was, in fact, talking to himself. If you like loony movies, that one is required watching.

I've been getting into some strange folk music from the late '60s-early '70s. I thought that I'd share a bit with you. This song is dedicated to Vera.

I wonder what kind of painting my blog friend Julie S. could interpret from this song.

There's this hairdressing place in TO called Ho's Team. Makes me laugh every time.

Oh my god there is so much music out right now that is influenced by the music in that video!

In Vancouver we have a convenient store called "Foodness" It always makes me laugh.

Do you have a Vietnamese restaurant chain out there called What the Pho? (Pronounced "fu")? That is the one that cracks me up down here! LOL!

That song creeped me out for some reason.

Is that the movie where he and his mistress do the crane mating dance? I love that scene.


Off the point.... I found a Strat in the garbage today. It's been badly abused, but I have adopted it and am going to rebuild it. Since I don't know the first thing about repairs and tech stuff, can you send me a few links to some of your favorite sites?
Cheers!


P.S. I'm back!!!!!

Julie~ De nada.

Vera~ You you did did? Lol!

Christielli~ "Come, join Ho's team!"

Rawbean~ Devendra Banhart comes to mind. Yeah, I've seen the influence myself and I'm not sure if I am able to endorse the new freak scene--freaksters--whatever:D For Foodness sakes!

O-Girl~ I'm not sure, but if I find it I will think of you!

Jules~ That's because it was a song about a an evil man hunting down an innocent girl and raping her. Really.

NYD~ Yes, the very same movie. Good to know that there is someone else out there who enjoys the obscure classics. I did try to reply through Blogger about the guitar stuff. I hope you got it.
