Walking down Commercial Drive at midnight on a Sunday is a lot different than Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, you guys. Especially while pulling a suitcase full of sweaty clothing that bounces with a scream on every bump as I harass the upstairs tenants of this quiet coastal community. 

Ahh yes, the skytrain, a time for reflection. 

I guess the best place to start this story is with my friend Tim. K...

I met my wife at the Wise Hall 9 years ago, and held her purse last night during the Pavel Bure's 2nd encore. This morning she ordered 2 drinks at breakfast and I gazed across the table with the same eyes that fooled her on that first night many blurry moons ago. I would have mentioned the importance of the room, had we not been escorted from the stage before our big finale. So it goes.

We were u...

It's 2:04am and I didn't shower when I got home. And by the taste of this vodka-gator, I may never sleep (or shower) again. Quite a night. My mind is full and my voice is rough. Time to blast "Too Late…No Friends" and feel a thousand ways about stuff.

It's fun to be a sorta celeb at local shows until a real celeb like Dan Garrison shows up, and steals the eyes from every socket. It's becoming a r...

I'm going to talk about the limo later.

This show rules. Every episode is good. The characters are expanding and the story-line is addicting. Many seasons of renewal lie ahead. Our time-slot is safe, the ratings will hold. Welcome to the dangerously stable Vancouver punk rock manifold.

Anteater was a real solid draft pick for this team. Like a 3rd rounder scoring 30 goals. They brought speed and...

A cool thing about Abbotsford is the ability for 20 artists and friends to drink 200 beers in the parking lot across the street from an upstairs music school hosting an all-ages punk show above a (still-existing) movie rental store. There was never the slightest threat of military interference. We were polite, as artists are, and bagged our empties accordingly. We offered a fun punk show upstairs...

It takes a lot of moisturizer to fix your face after wearing a fake beard to a fashion food show. I'm wearing 17 layers. That costume-glue shit attaches itself to the skin like a lonely sip of sticky gin. Yet my stache still disappeared a few songs in. Tried hard to keep the golden soul patch on, for all the true Fieri fans, but eventually it joined the legions of empty cans at my feet.

I wish AT...

Mega Donair is finally out!

This album took two years to record. Drums in The Pearson's basement, building an isolation booth and studio in my apartment between touring and breaking a wrist. Mixing it. Having it mastered by Jason Livermore at the legendary Blasting Room. The album design by Steve Kitchen.

We made the album we set out to make and we did it DIY. I finished it last summer and I've been...

At the press conference after the show one of the reporters asked me this: "Coach Col, how are you so successful in training such a high-impact basketball club?" My answer is this: "Thank you so much."

Almost threw a punch last night. Russian Tim used an innocent artist named Andrew Pederson as an attack weapon towards our new shirt sales. Simply put, he built a better shirt. It was a lesson in b...

I'd like to start by thanking my friend Tim. He is the wrapping on the gifts we give. He is the biggest fan of the scene we live. He is the glue that binds us. He makes local bands famous. He drives a Lexus. Thank you Tim, and your constant great-successness.

Wednesday is a hard day to organize a concert, but my friend Tim organized 4 in a row, and every one was a fun and fantastic show. He knew...

I miss Lachlan already. He added a special spice to this city that no longer sprinkles our soup. His positivity was always a motivation. Like an R-Tim or a B-Von-D. We've lost a great brother, for now, but the war is far from over. Our clans will unite again, and we shall crush the forces that align along the equator against us.

Punk Rock Bowling was rad a couple weeks ago. Drinking 9 beers befor...
