You guys! The long weekend is almost upon us!! This is most excellent news. I’d like to send a shout-out to good old Queen Victoria. Thanks for being born, lady!
Things have been pretty hectic around LTRV headquarters. It’s the beginning of cottage season (or what I like to call “the only time of the year that actually matters”) so we’ve been hightailing it out of town on the weekends, sans access to technology or internet connections. Sometimes a man’s just gotta hang out in the woods, y’know? As such, our posts have been a bit sparse of late. We promise to step things up in the upcoming weeks though. We have LOTS of good stories lined up for you, dear readers, and some book reviews on tap as well.
One thing we are very much looking forward to is NXNE, which kicks off on June 13th. We’re quite excited about the various free shows that’ll be taking place, including Devo and Men Without Hats at Yonge-Dundas Square on June 18th. In the spirit of this upcoming event, I am posting a video here for your enjoyment. This tune came out in ’87 and was one of 11-year-old Spencer’s fav songs. I used to listen to it on 64 Lite Rock, the Ottawa radio station of choice amongst my middle school peers (thanks to this station I also developed an early and enduring love of Bananarama, Rick Astley, and Gowan, among others).
Wishing you a happy & safe holiday long weekend! Don’t do anything we wouldn’t do! 😉
