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!

It was quite a week last week. It started off on a more heavy note last Sunday, but as the week wore on, things became better and more clear. So let's do a little recap. This is going to be kind of long, so if you find this kind of stuff boring I've inserted pictures of funny cats for your entertainment. So... 1.5 Weeks Ago About 1.5 weeks ago, my friend Jon from Living Room gave me the contact info for his uncle. His uncle is an engineer and apparently was looking for new grads and new hands to hire. That week, I gave him a few calls but he wasn't there when I called him and when he returned my calls, I wasn't here either. We were playing phone tag that week *insert schoolgirl giggle*. Sunday Morning So last Sunday morning, his uncle gave me a call at 9 am (The morning! My weakness! HISS!) and we talked about stuff. I was telling him a bit about school as well as elaborating my work/coop experience as he didn't have my resume yet. So he goes on to tell

George Clooney is UP IN THE AIR!!!

So this is the last in the three movies that I was looking forward to at the end of 2009 (the other two being Bad Lieutenant and Avatar). It's hard to say which movies I enjoyed more because they're all so different, but I can confidently say that I enjoyed all three. Also of the three, this movie is the most realistic when it's all said and done. Up In The Air tells a story about Ryan Bingham, who flies all over America firing people. Laying people off is such a tough thing to do that companies that need to do so hire people like Ryan. It becomes reflective as Ryan sees his own life of isolation at odds compared to the lives of those around him. It's apt that he has such a hollow and thankless job which parallels his own life. Because he's on the road for 250+ days of the year, his own life is quite hollow; with no stable relationships, weakened family ties and no friendships in sight. In fact the first time we see his apartment, I was kind of shocked. Up

Let the good times roll!

Welcome to the revamped Billionty-Oneth Geek website! First of all, update your bookmarks and re-subscribe to the feed if you have to. I bought a domain name for my blog, and it's easy access (sort of) through www.billiontyonethgeek.com (I'm sorry that it's such a long address, but hey, here's a hug *hug*). Second of all, you might have noticed the new layout. It's a complete Lam original! I designed it from the top down. It actually took a lot quicker than I had initially thought it would. Because the coding didn't show up properly on Dreamweaver through the GUI, I actually had to code the whole damn thing. Because my knowledge of HTML and CSS were so basic, it took a lot of trial and error. What's frustrating was that there would be times where I'd make a change in the code, yet nothing ended up changing when I uploaded the code. The weird part was that I'd block off the changes, then undo it, and somehow magically the changes appeared.
