So, I nearly died today. And not, "oh my god, Brittany fell down the stairs and like, broke her leg" or anything along those lines. No no, it had nothing to do with me being accident prone and everything to do with The Daily Observer.
Now, I'll admit, Renfrew County does not have the greatest of news coverage, mostly, I say, because there isn't much to report. But this morning I picked up the paper and nearly died. In the top, right hand corner I see this picture: 6 people walking down a deserted road, the lead one awkwardly holding a guitar like he's never seen one before, let alone play it. The caption next to it reads "THEY ROCK: Local band debuts CD". And the CD cover reads "Nothing Sacred".
My first thought: Holy shit. He made a cd. Someone let that evil little scuzzy haired man into a recording studio. I'm hoping that it's not him; that it's some other local band who sucks and calls themselves "No Hope in Hell", I mean "Nothing Sacred", so I turn to (get this) page 11 (cause heaven forbid they're as important as he thinks they are) and my mouth drops.
"Local band believes it has what it takes to make it big". I nearly died. I nearly fell off my chair from a sudden heart attack. Apparently a decades worth of "hard work and sacrifice is paying off big time" for the band. O_o Um, is it just me or are the two main band members oh, I dunno, teachers? You know, the well-paying, terrific benefits, sort of jobs? Apparently after being founded in 1992, this is the bands first independent cd, called "In This World". Maybe that's a sign. To -not- be in a band. If you can't get any studio time after 10 years, let it go.
Oh, but that's not the best part. "On Saturday, May 6, at the Petawawa Civic Center Nothing Sacrred is launching both the album and its latest tour, and the band members want and need this show of support."
"'This is the one,' Mr Briand said. 'This is the pinnacle of 10 years of slugging it out,' and the band would like to show they are ready to take on Canada and the world."
"'People believe in us,' he said, 'and we want them there to be a part of history.'"
The article goes on to say that it's the best line up of musicians they've ever had and that there has been an "evolution in the band members, in the quality of the lyrics, in the quality of the songs from bottom up." Wjhy, because you have your students write your song lyrics for you? Ya, you're a real musicial genuis Randy.
"Quite simply, it rocks." brags an overconfident Mr. Briand.
The doors open at 7:30, and the opening band is Scribble.
This is a sad day. Not only does Briand think he's the greatest human being ever, he's now going to tour and tell everyone that. Can you imagine this man doing interviews? I sure can't.
I'm honestly not sure whether or not to laugh or cry when i read this article.
