Your Heart CD Release

Last night I attended the CD release show for Andrew Huang under the name Your Heart at St. Stephen in the Fields church (home of Freedomize Toronto). The album is called "Summer" and it's his goal to release one themed album for each season, with this being the first one.

In the promo flyer it said that there would be cookies, farm animals, and Barack Obama. All three were promised and delivered. It was a nice intimate atmosphere capped off with candlelit tables which gave off a great romantic mood even if you're not romantic.

In addition to releasing his CD, it was also the debut of the music video for his song "In the Sun", which opened up his set. The set was an eclectic mix of upbeat songs and more mellow tunes. About half the songs were performed with a full band, while the others were filled with selective instruments. The show ended off with a live performance of "In the Sun", to which a fair group of dancers filled the front stage area, I guess the crowd favourite.

I'd say the only thing that hampered the show was the balancing of levels on the mix board. The instruments came through fine, but the vocals sounded a bit muffled and it was difficult to make out what the lyrics were. However, it was a fun show, and hey, it was free cover, can't argue that!

Check out his website (here and Myspace). Below is a preview for the music video. Later geeks!

Thanks for inviting me out! A great night for sure. I love the CD even more because I can hear the vocals! Ended up being a reunion night for me - who knew.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens!!!!!!!!!!

(Warning: Spoilers Ahead)
Star Wars!!!!  After a 10 year gap we finally receive a new entry into the now Disney owned Star Wars franchise!  So it is apt that the new entry is called the Force Awakens.
The movie starts off 30 years from where the Return of the Jedi last left us.  The Empire has fallen and the Rebels have seemingly disbanded.  But from the ashes of the past, a new threat has risen.  Out of the fallen Empire, a new army called the First Order has spawned, threatening to finish off what the Empire set out to do –  eliminate the force by terminating the last known Jedi, Luke Skywalker.  But as the Empire has evolved so have the Rebels.  Led by General Leia Organa, the Resistance (or the new Rebels) aims to find Luke first, to stop the First Order.
We are told this story through two new main characters.  Rey, who is a scavenger on the planet Jakku, who harvests scrap metals to earn a meal.  Finn, a turncoat stormtrooper who realizes his purpose could be something more than j…

R.I.P. Evan Tanner

The body of the professional fighter and former UFC champion, Evan Tanner, 37, was found in the Palo Verde mountain area of California on September 8th, 2008. He was found a few miles away from his campsite on foot, with no water, where the temperatures were around 110 degrees fahrenheit. The coroner's report listed the cause of death as from heat exposure.

Tanner left Oceanside, California on September 2nd. On September 4th, he sent a text message to a friend telling him that his motorcycle was out of gas, that he was out of water, and if his friend didn't hear from him the next day, to call the authorities. Unfortunately, Evan never returned home.

I'm not the hugest MMA fan, I consider myself a casual fan, and a n00b at best. I was listening to Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling Observer Radio, and the story of Tanner's life sounded intriguing.

As fantastic as it sounds, Tanner ventured into the deserts in search of treasure and adventure. I kid you …

That's just RELIGULOUS!

I won tickets to an early screening of Religulous and took my brother to watch it earlier tonight. The film was directed by Larry Charles (of Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Borat fame), but clearly this was the Bill Maher show.

The movie follows Maher as he treks around the world trying to find out why people believe what they do. He is basically questioning them as to why they are so certain, as he himself tries to promote doub.t The movie primarily focuses on western religions, but in the latter half he tries to do a lightning round with other faiths (ie. Scientology, Mormonism, Islam, etc).

He interviews a bevy of loony characters to ensure laughs, and oftentimes with a smug and arrogant flair. In that sense, the movie works as it balances with more serious talks as he learns about other religions. But more often than not, the discussions are with wacky people rather than learned professionals.

One of the high points for me was a scene in a London park where he pretended to …
