Dumbfounded One

Trying to understand it all.

Blow until firm

I went to the Toronto Marlies game with my buddies Drew and Chris this past Wednesday. They’re in the playoffs, so they want fan support and a lot of noise. Therefore, they gave out these “Thunder Sticks” to bang together. Picture here.

The thing is… at the bottom, it gives inflation instructions. (sorry for the quality)

It’s blurry, so let me tell you what it says.

To inflate

Hold plastic open

With thumbs and fingers

Blow in here until firm

I just thought it was funny

I found out tonight that a “story” from my grandmother (Kathleen O’Sullivan brn: 1900) might actually be true. Apparently she was the model for the Princess Gates for the CNE Toronto. For the 18 years I knew her, she may not have been talking shit after all. Way to go, Gramma!

New York Dolls – Phoenix Concert Theatre – Toronto

As posted earlier, I went to see the New York Dolls this week. Two words.


The first video here, I was about 10 feet behind the person that shot it.

This is a better quality video from the same night.

David Johansen and Sylvain Sylvain still have it.

I was there. I got the T-shirt.

trash, go pick it up, take them lights away

My buddy Chris sent me an e-mail this morning telling me about the upcoming NY Dolls show here in Toronto on Feb 18th.
As a present to my wife Patti (today’s her birthday), I went and got tickets.
