Two bits of good news in the Cringles book world: we're officially in our second printing of MFUG, and we just finished recording the audio book - to be released sooner than later, provided I don't twinge myself to death listening back in the editing room. I'm not sure, but I might have to redo it more convincingly. Tap into the Kiefer Sutherland narrating a car commercial/Morgan Freeman telling me he doesn't give a damn part of my performance soul!
This past weekend, Bruce Peninsula had the pleasure of recording some oohs and aaahs for Del Bel. They're working on a new record that, from what we heard, sounds awesome. Afterward, we clinked glasses to more awesome recordings freshly in the can: EONS' first, Marine Dreams' second, the Weather Station's third... the paint on 2012 barely had a chance to dry!

Matt Cully - my dear friend, honourary sibling, and mastermind of the beautiful musical project known as EONS - is almost done recording his debut record, ARCTIC RADIO. By tomorrow, the last item on his tracking to do list will be crossed off, and it will be onto mixing and mastering. I told Matt I was proud of him, and that I feel like I'm his biggest fan. He thanked me, but then said I could never actually be his fan because we play together. Which I guess is true. The only underwear I throw at him are the ones my grandma sends me in the mail. He hates it. I love it.

Philosophy is a real thing:
“While we believe that the quarry would have brought significant economic benefit to Melancthon Township and served Ontario’s well-documented need for aggregate, we acknowledge that the application does not have sufficient support from the community and government to justify proceeding with the approval process,” said John Scherer of The Highland Companies in a press release.

The good folks at Heavy Weather just sent this EONS video to Matt. He just passed it along to me. We've been anticipating its arrival since it was filmed at Sappyfest, and I believe his exact words to me via e-mail were, "Here it is, Sugar Ass." Band nick names, eh? After I post this, I'm going to return to "Thanks a mil, Angel Dick" in my drafts.
Matt starts EONS recording tomorrow, which makes this appearance in his inbox extra bold. Enjoy!

Tonight is the launch in Toronto. I'm excited and nervous. Not as nervous as I would be if I was staying home and watching the vice presidential debate, but definitely more excited. Last night, I asked myself, "Why do I feel so relaxed about plans for tomorrow?" The answer came quickly: "Because Matt Cully has taken care of everything, ya princess." My pals! Their love is a magic, limitless gift certificate to Rona. I think I could actually build a house with it.
Tonight! Come oh-verrr!

Found notes (on “falling in love”):
“Like blood coming back into your foot after its been asleep”
“Like a droopy piece of celery in a glass of cold water”
“Like getting in the ring with someone whose kicked your ass a bunch of times”
“Like a birth and a death, simultaneously, on opposites sides of the world”
Found notes (on “rehabilitation”):
“Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall, with a sense that he was different from the rest. All the king's horses and all the king's men cannot put him back together again because they don’t relate to his design. It isn’t formulaic. They don’t know that his desire, every time, is activated by the fall...”
