Full Drive: 1 hour and 45 minutes from Tiverton to Kitchener
I’m not posting this with the expectation that anyone will spend an hour and 45 minutes watching me drive home from the cottage. This is for me.
However, if you want to hear a live bootleg of Max the Axe playing their first gig with the current lineup…it’s here. I actually didn’t intend to use it, but I clicked the wrong music folder and it will take hours to re-save. So here you go! The track list for this video is:

VIDEO: Dashcam Idiots #3 – Oh sure, you just go.
Went out for five minutes to get Jen a coffee. Came back to this thanks to an accident on Highway 8. This is the spilloff traffic.
Nothing major, but watch where you’re going bud.
Music: “Pygmy Blowdart” by Max the Axe from the new Oktoberfest Cheer EP.
Sunday Screening: A Drive to Kincardine / Max the Axe – “Scales of Justice”
From the infuriating city rat race to the open roads of the country, a beautiful drive is to be viewed here, all to the tune of the classic “Scales of Justice” by Max the Axe.
VIDEO: Max the Axe – “Hard Drive” / Traffic jam on Highway 401
It was a drizzly drive home, with an accident right in the “Sweet Spot” of Highway 401 heading into Kitchener. Perfect for another Max the Axe video. The track is called “Hard Drive” (see what I did there?) and it’s from his 1995 debut cassette Bodies of Water. It’s a killer epic featuring flute, saxophone, and the works.
In this video you’ll notice I’m a patient driver; I don’t change lanes to go faster. I get in the lane I’m supposed to be in and I stay there. I only change lanes a couple times in the whole video.
Pay attention and you’ll see the anti-abortion protesters across from Freeport hospital. You’ll also notice landmarks such as Tim Horton’s (see how many you can spot) and the striking Grand River bridge. Mostly you’ll be annoyed at the tail lights and other drivers. Get a coffee. (This video has been sped up 2.5 times to match the length of the song.) Enjoy the drive!
VIDEO: A Drive Around Kitchener / Max the Axe – “Scales of Justice”
Just looking for ways to get some local bands heard. Seems a drive around Kitchener-Waterloo is a good video background for a band from Kitchener-Waterloo called Max the Axe.
From their sixth record Status Electric comes “Scales of Justice” written by Mike Koutis and Eric Litwiller. The lyrics tell a truthful tale of why only a fool owns a deadly snake let alone two.
This video is sped up 10x and was filmed on Saturday 9/5/2020 in the afternoon.
VIDEO: Rain Drive
Too exhausted to write after that white-knuckle drive home. I am disappointed that the camera footage doesn’t convey the sheer terror of 5-6 feet of visibility in near non-stop rain.
So this is what you get, no metal reviews today, just a video of the drive home set to music. After editing (I slowed the video down in some of the small towns so you could get a better look at rural Ontario) it came to be the exact length of a song that I can use called “A Beautiful Day” by Tempted Fate, a Raw M.E.A.T band. Contrary to the lyrics though, it was thankfully not a beautiful day to die and we made it home in one piece although exhaused from the effort.
Enjoy the tune!
#849: Indoor Day
Sunday was what we call an “indoor day” at the lake. This is what I did with my indoor day.
The video took me most of the day, because my poor old laptop (10, this year) couldn’t handle all of the large files at once. So I started over from scratch and figured out a workaround until I was done about 7 hours later. I cooked, I went outside, I played with action figures, and I drank coffee until it finally saved without errors.
This video should scratch itches for a variety of people including:
1) Max the Axe fans – the full song “Randy” is included.
2) Dr. Kathryn Ladano fans – the full song “Masked” is included.
3) Those who enjoy driving videos. This is my first extensive use of my dash cam.
4) Nature buffs. You will hear real lake noises, rainstorms, and waves. You will see more cool underwater footage from the beaches of Lake Huron, and the legendary Greatest Sunset in the World.
5) Marvel / action figure fans. Look for a special “Build A Figure” Hulk.
You will not get:
1) Audio of me singing “Kissing Time” by Kiss; this was lost with the first version of the video.
2) Any of my pork chops.
But you can freely:
1) Live vicariously through me and absorb the good vibes through your monitor and speakers.
While visitors showing up on our little private road was not unexpected on a long weekend, it is disappointing when they show such little respect for the people who live here. A guy parked his ATV on our grass and said “Don’t get your knickers in a bunch” when my mom asked several times for him to move it. This came after arguing that he had the right to park there due to a “snow allowance”. There is no such thing.
Then we had Kenny the fireworks guys shooting off a “truck bed” full of firepower at 9:30 Saturday night. That was…distracting. As much as I love this place it certainly has changed in the last 45 years. Enjoy the video — the good the bad and the ugly!

Yesterday on my way home from work, I thought this guy was gonna eat it.
