      Holy crap, this band is on fire! One of the best big bands still around today. I love all of their stuff; The Phat Pack has become one of my all-time favourite albums, and they have a countless number of songs that I could listen to over and over again. Just a few of them include Count Bubba, (and his Revenge), Huntin' Wabbits (and the sequel, Bad Hare Day), Bach 2 Part Invention in D Minor, & La Almeja Pequena (The Little Clam) (which has my all-time favourite recorded trumpet solo). Their newest album, Act Your Age, is absolutely killer; my favourite song on that album has to be Backrow Politics, but the whole thing is fantastic.

      Not only is Goodwin's music fun to listen to, his charts are great to play. We're playing a slightly easier version of Count Bubba in my college's jazz band this semester. I've also heard from lots of people that his other charts are equally as awesome.

      What do you guys think of the Big Phat Band? Like 'em? Ever play their music?

      Somehow, for some reason, I find myself making a lot of stupid "your mom" jokes, just for the sake of it. Stupid laughs.

      But it's gotten worse. I'll be at home, for example, watching TV, with nobody else in the house. Someone on the TV will say something, and I'll make a "your mom" joke about it, with nobody around to receive it. For example:

      Football Player Being Interviewed on TV: Well, John, football is football...
      Me: Your mom is football.
      *I then laugh for a second before realizing the pitiful state of my existence*

      Or, me, doing my Music Theory homework right now. Nobody's around, and I just finished a question.

      Me: Your mom writes chorales in four-part textures.

      I make myself depressed.
      So does your mom.

      We had our own Federal election up here in Canada less than a month ago.
      Voter turnout nationwide was 59.1%.
      That's bad enough.

      However, voter turnout where I live was even worse.
      35.9%
      Downright embarrassing.

      I sincerely hope that you guys can do better.
      Get the hell out there and vote today.

    • Halloween and Stuff

      So, Halloween was fun. smiley0.gif
      I was having some trouble thinking of something to dress up as, when my friend Kyle gave me a killer suggestion:

      Colonel Sanders: The KFC Guy.

      It was a last-minute idea, and it took a lot of running around on Thursday evening, but I eventually found everything I needed to pull it off. The costume went over great at school yesterday, and at the Halloween kegger at the lounge. I don't drink, and since the Students' Association needed someone to work the door, so I did that while my friends Josh, Brittany, and Ken got the most hammered they've ever been. It was a blast. smiley0.gif

      This morning, though, none of them were feeling too good. smiley6.gif

      Anyway, here's what I'm doing tonight...
      Good news: Randy Bachman is playing a show in town tonight.
      Bad news: Tickets to said show are $200.
      Good news: The event is a formal Gala-style fundraiser for my college, and requires quite a number of volunteers.
      I'll be taking the concert in from a distance, but I'll still be there; I'll just be selling drink tickets to the richest people in town. smiley0.gif

      Anyway, that's me. What are you up to tonight? Remember that the clocks go back tonight, so you have an extra hour to do whatever the hell it is you'll be doing.

      The final episode of Red vs Blue:Reconstruction will air on Wednesday October 29th at 10:00PM Central Time.

      --- Burnie's Journal

      A bit of delay in the release of the final episode. Oh, well. Probably means that it's full of all the answers we're looking for, right?

      ...right? smiley6.gif

      What do you think the ending of Reconstruction will bring? What are the implications of Tex as a ghost/AI? What is Tucker looking for in the sand? Will this EMP be the end of Church? What do you think?

      More from Burnie's journal:

      We will not have an extended break between RvB projects as you have seen in the past. There will be a few weeks downtime, then return to making new videos, which will just be a random weekly affair. Then we will have two new mini-series followed by an extended series to follow up Reconstruction. The two mini-series and all the weekly vids should take us all the way to the Spring before the next big show starts. Of course, all of this is flexible and we will continue to move things around to bring you the best videos possible.


      Hmmm... I think one of the mini-series might address the Tucker thing. It would only be fair to give him his own little run, considering he wasn't in Reconstruction at all thus far. Not too sure about the other mini-series; some more background on what happened to Tex. maybe? What are your thoughts?

      The fact that the RT team is prepared to bring us new videos straight through until Spring, when the next big project starts, is impressive. Sponsors like me will really be getting their money's worth!

      *is excited*

      Here's hoping for a kickass finale on Wednesday!
