line up the tin cans

Must be some serious target practice going on up the road. I’ve been hearing gunshots for the past hour-and-a-half.

With every shot comes a slap as I smack the mosquitoes on my arms. These insects would like to liquefy my bones, suck the humanity right out of me. I am nothing but a sweat-frosted skin sandwich.

I’m performing tomorrow night at The Attic in Halifax with my rock band, Colour TV. We’ll have copies of our CD for sale. Friday is a holiday so come out and get silly. Maybe I’ll get punched out in the middle of our set again.

In lieu of a gig flyer, I am going to post this picture of Herve Villechaize.

Look at him. Look deep into his eyes. He’s trying to tell you something: “Colour TV are playing live at The Attic, June 30th 2005, along with Sharp Like Knives, Attack Mode and Shelter With Thieves. Come out and spend time with the happy people and if you are not happy then I, Herve Villechaize, will make you happy.”

I plan to arrive in Halifax early enough tomorrow so I can eat at Bach’s Cafe on Agricola Street. It’s been a couple months since I’ve had their Korean mandoo. If you’re reading this, why don’t you meet me there at 4PM. Just you, me, Tattoo and a big pile of tasty Korean dumplings.
