New Year's Video

 Journal

I actually shot about an hour’s worth of video on New Year’s eve, but thanks to my crummy internet connection at home, haven’t been able to upload any. Today I was down at Starbucks, so I decided to upload a video of Mike Smith (who plays Bubbles on the TV show ‘Trailer Park Boys’) playing “Born Losers” with Matthew Good and the band. I actually was a big fan of Mike Smith’s previous band, Sandbox, back in the day. I’ll be posting a few more to Matt’s Facebook Fan Page, so follow along there if you want to see the […]

Another Year Falls

 Journal

I haven’t had time to write a New Year’s post yet, but I thought I would now. Truthfully, in terms of personal life events, this year was thankfully fairly normal, especially when placed in the context of the last few years. Back in January I left my Vancouver job to work with BraveNewCode full time with Dale, and that’s been a great experience so far. But other than that, my life has thankfully become a bit more normal, lacking hospital visits or any surgeries. Last night I rang in the New Year with a few friends in Charlotte, North Carolina. […]

Whirlwind New Year's Adventure

 Journal

Wednesday night I boarded a plane for Charlotte, North Carolina to ring in the New Year with some friends at the Whisky River tavern. I got in early in the morning yesterday, took a nap, then dolled myself up a bit for the event. Mike Smith (Bubbles from the Trailer Park Boys) was actually there too, and he got up on stage and sung his Liquor and Whores song. Afterwards, Matt put on a great one-hour set, with Mike Smith joining in on Born Losers. After the show we all just hung out at some tables on the side and […]

And Away We Go

 Journal

I’m currently sitting at Gate C43 in Vancouver International airport, on my way to Charlotte, NC for New Year’s eve party with a few friends. My friend Matt is the live entertainment for a party that Dale Earnhardt Junior is throwing, and I thought it would be cool to ring in the new year with everyone down there instead of spending it in Chilliwack. Flights around this time of year are around $800 return, but thanks to that recent terrorist scare, I found a couple steals for a little over $300 return, which is why I booked yesterday. So I’m […]

Charlotte, North Carolina Bound

 Journal

Tonight I went out for a few drinks with my friend Tony, and it became apparent that I didn’t have any idea what to do with myself for New Year’s Eve. So, with that in that mind, I’ve come up with a plan. I’ll be heading to Charlotte, North Carolina tomorrow night for New Year’s eve, which should be a lot of fun. My friend Matthew Good is the entertainment at a party hosted by Dale Earnhardt Jr, and it looks like I’ll be going. It’s a really quick trip, and I’ll be coming back on Friday.

Matthew Good Heading To The United States

 Journal

Matthew Good is currently on tour here in Canada promoting his latest album, Vancouver. The tour concludes in less than two weeks with two shows in Toronto’s prestigious Massey Hall (where I was lucky enough to see Matt a few years ago). A batch of shows in the United States were just announced over on Matt’s website, so if you’re in the states, head on over and check them out. I caught Matt play down in Seattle on his last US tour with my friend John Bollwitt, and it was a great show. Given that both Seattle shows are on […]

Matthew Good's "Vancouver" Streaming Live

 Journal

Matthew Good is streaming his newest album, “Vancouver”, live from his website for the next 30 days. Unlike his last album, Hospital Music, where I only got to see the process at the very end, I was fortunate enough to see the creation of this album from basically demos all the way up to the point where I got to hang out with Matt down in the studio one night while it was being recorded. I’ve had the album spinning on my iPod for about a month now, so it’s great to finally have it unleashed upon the world. Without […]

The album doesn’t come out until October 6th, 2009, but you can whet your whistle on the single until then.

New Matthew Good Tracks Coming Soon

 Journal

As I mentioned during Blogathon, Canadian musician Matthew Good‘s new album, Vancouver, is coming out sometime in October. As Matt has mentioned on his blog previously, the new single will hitting the airwaves sometime in mid August. I don’t know the exact date, but Matt is mysteriously counting down to something on his Facebook page, so you may want to follow along there. For those of you who read my blog from other countries (which appears to be about 50% of you), you can read about Matthew Good over on wikipedia, or from Matt’s About Page. In short, Matt’s produced […]

Entry #38 – Matthew Good's "Vancouver"

 Journal

On October 6th, Matthew Good’s next studio album, “Vancouver”, will hit stores nationwide. Matt’s last studio album, Hospital Music, opened at the number one spot on the Canadian charts, and also hit number six or number seven on the US alternative charts. I’ve been a huge fan of Matt’s work for years, ever since my friend Kirsten came by my dorm room in university and slipped Last Of The Ghetto Astronauts into my CD player. In fact, I’m fairly certain that Matthew Good is the only artist in my entire CD collection where I’ve gone to great lengths to own […]
