Boys Night Out Reunion Show!!!!

The original members of Boys Night Out reunited for one night for a sold out show at The Opera House.

Love (bore) You To Death

I got to the venue late so I missed the first band (I think they were called Backburner) but I got there just in time for this local band called Love You To Death. Well, the only thing they managed to do was bore me to death. Judging by the reactions of the crowd the majority of the crowd felt the same way. I can't really blame them though; they were a power pop rock band where a screamo band was the headliner. I think one problem though was the sound balancing. They seemed too heavy on the bass and not enough treble, so it was tough to hear the guitar riffs for many of the songs. Other than that, my friend Greg sent me a message later that said "[the] Keytar player was pretty cute though, so I mean... They had that going for them". That's pretty much where the good ends.

Unfortunately The Simcoe Street Mob didn't play even though they were advertised. It might have been because of time constraints because apparently they were there. So it was truly our loss. The Mob is clearly a local favourite as loud chants of Simcoe were pumped in between almost all of BNO's songs.

Boys Night Out

Anyhow, the dead crowd was awakened as soon as the guys from Boys Night Out hit the stage. The people were jumping, the mosh pit had begun, the energy had arrived. In the promotion of this one night only show, they advertised that they would only be playing songs from their EP, Broken Bones and Bloody Kisses, and their first LP, Make Yourself Sick, but I was thankful that they played a song or two from Trainwreck. They played pretty much all of the favourites off of those two first albums so the crowd was sent home happy. They had a pretty electric performance barely stopping between songs to get all their shit in. I hope they do another reunion show in the future, except playing the whole Trainwreck album from start to finish; it's probably one of my favourite albums.

It was quite a fun show, it's too bad the broke up. But if they'll do a reunion show once a year, I'd be more than happy. Later geeks!

DTV Madness: Jack Brooks - M.S. and Gingerdead Man 2

Okay, honestly, I think this will be the last DTV post for a while. One man can only take so much shit. I'm only human, I have feelings too. These two movies pushed my limit. I'm going to be in DTV-detox for the next month or so.

Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer

I thought that with a title like this, it couldn't fail. I thought that with a poster like they had, it couldn't fail. Then I realized something... I failed. I failed in thinking that this movie had any hope.

I was expecting some fun horror, mixed with comedy in sort of a Buffy the Vampire Slayer kind of fashion with a bumbling hero and smart quips. I mean, with a title like Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer, was I wrong in expecting a variety of monsters get slayed as the title suggests?

It didn't help much that the monsters looked uber cheesy. They looked like something right out of a Power Rangers episode. But to their credit, at least they stuck with practical make-up and effects rather than CG.

The movie its…

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 …

The Science of God

Not too long ago, two of my friends had posted their thoughts on evolution and creationism. Both friends shared similar sentiments on the topic (you can view Skylar's here and Keith's here). Coincidence or not, shortly before they made their postings, I purchased a book called The Science of God by Dr. Gerald Schroeder, which was based on the same topic. Unfortunately, at the time of my friend's postings, I had not finished the book, but now I have.

In The Science of God, Schroeder attempts to debunk the dichotomy that exists between science/evolution and creationism. He tries to show that there can exist a duality between the two and that discoveries in science actually prove the story of creation in the bible.

The book can be roughly divided into three categories that being the concepts of time, the second with the biology of evolution, and lastly the concept of free will.

In describing time, he focuses on the 6 days that are explained in the beginning of Genesis. Duri…
