GETTING MORE TALE #781: What Happened to C-3PO’s Hand? The Story
Pardon the volume on this video, I really struggled with it and then said “fuck it”.
I’ve had this camera for just a week, and look at this fool.
The first weekend of August is a long weekend in Ontario. It’s called the Civic holiday, but people in retail still have to work it. I did, almost every single year at the Record Store. This year we spent the holiday at the lake, where I secretly began work on the next review series here at mikeladano.com. With the encouragement of my good buddy Superdekes, two posts were completed at the lake, on the front porch. You couldn’t have asked for a better setting.
As usual I’ve assembled a video of some of our weekend fun, all to the tune of Max the Axe (“My Daddy Was A Murderin’ Man”, and “Call of the Wild”). Check out crystal clear waters, mountains of food, and rock and roll. And of course that sneak preview for our next review series!
Music by Max the Axe.
“Overload” from the CD Overload (2008)
A labour of love brought to us every year with blood, sweat, years and possibly other bodily fluids: It’s Sausagefest!
New wrinkles this year include a water proof camera for those aquatic shots. Look for a guest appearance by legendary rock star Max the Axe (he’s kind of a big deal).
The Countdown this year included a number of favourites; see if you can pick ’em out in the video.
Oh, there are stories too. Max the Axe ordering two and half eggs at the Spatula. Uncle Meat trapped trying to escape a collapsed tent; a brutal trick by his “friends”. Also the first time I may genuinely peed myself laughing. These stories will be shared when the mind and body have had time to heal. There was also a UFO sighting at 3:30 am Saturday morning.
Thanks Erik Woods, Jason Drury, and Dave Jutzi for your help with my recordings this year!
This is what we do with our rock and roll vacation.
It’s Canada Day up Canada way. I hope you had a safe and happy one. Here’s what I did on my Canada Day vacation.
EXCLUSIVE! Dr. Kathryn talks about new album MASKED out later this year!
They say it’s the greatest sunset in the world. You be the judge.
The location is Lorne Beach near Kincardine, Ontario. The song is “Leave You Now”, a very rare track by Gypsy Jayne from their 1992 cassette Alive and Wandering.
