Sloan rocked out at the Marquee last night. It was one of the best shows I've been at in awhile in terms of rockage. Being that close to the stage made me feel like it was 1996 again. So great!

Holy sweet jebus! Look at the veins on Andrew Scott!

One thing I love about Sloan is how each guy seems like a totally different rock star. Andrew Scott is all "Whatever. I have other things going. I paint and I rock."

Patrick is more "I'm fashionable but I'm super dedicated to playing this correctly. Okay, I need to rock out for a sec. Alright, back to being correct."
Chris: "I totally understand the power of my smile and I'm going to rock that power. Also, watch me kick and pump my fists! I love to rock out! I love my band! Whoo!"

And Jay is like "You guys do what you want. I'm gonna wear my clothes tight and move like it's 1972."

Can you guess who was always my favourite?

Side note: my friend is pretty sure her ex-fiance sold this bass to Chris Murphy.

During the encore, Patrick's dad came aboard to rock the keyboards for a cover of "Roll Over Beethoven" which was jumpin'. You can see Chris request his presence on stage in the video below.

One of the greatest shows ever. My feet were pretty mad at me though.

P.S. It was Patrick.

Nice composure in those photos..

Finally commenting after a long time of stopping by. You hooked me with the band-aid collection photos a long time ago.

Say, what ever happened to Pizza Diarist? That guy just dropped off the map altogether.

Feel free to stop by my place. Although I mostly curse, whine, and moan about my job..

An actual comment! From someone I don't know! Exciting! I was pretty sure only two people ever looked at this page, which is sad, because I do actually know more than two people.

I have seen a lot of band-aids this summer, but I haven't had the passion to photograph them like I once did. I overdid it I guess.

Pizza Diarist dropped off the face of the internet because he got a girlfriend. Turns out him being happy accounts for less need to blog. Pff.

Now, cursing, whining and moaning? Sounds like my kind of entertainment!

I'm still chuckling to myself about the first thing you said there; "an actual comment!". I know how you feel.

Nah, I actually came across your page from the now sadly defunkt Pizza Diarist. There was a smashing photo of you with Devo glasses on holding a ping pong paddle. It made me laugh!

The Cuba photos were great! I've always wanted to check that place out. Pretty sad that I live less than a half an hour by air and havent done it yet. ( but I also have our president to thank for that.. )

Thanks! It's good to hear that someone appreciates looking at photos since some people find it boring. Cuba was great, it's a shame you can't go. I must admit, I don't fully understand that whole situation. How can a free country ban you from visiting somewhere? Maybe I just don't have all the facts. All I know is that swimming in Cuba was one of the greatest experiences of my life. And that bus fire was one of the funniest.

Also glad you liked the ping pong paddle photo. Hope you like alliteration! It is one of many in a string of odd photos of myself.
