    Maniac

    Anyone watched the series yet? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L6cDDmk-O5A It's on Netflix and stars Jonah Hill and Emma Stone. They both do fantastic jobs. Best description I've heard of it was this tweet (though I'd add Cloud Atlas and Inception in there too).
  3. Anyone get a chance to listen to the new SP album? Wasn't exactly what I expected. Personally the first track really turned me off. But I do like Silvery Sometimes and Search And You Shall Destroy. A couple of the others are pretty good too. But short album and not the return to form I was thinking. Maybe I just got nostalgic from the show I seen over the summer and it couldn't be matched. Still glad 3/4 of the band is rocking together again.

    There The First Time

    Just in case anyone wants to be able to look at them without searching them up: Get a good run at it Whip the horse and rattle The station of state a bit A universe of battle Every second a sun Somewhere one dies No heaven's heir apparent There the first time Well I know this feeling I get it all the time Every second a sun Somewhere one dies Time to get on with it The prison and the shackles Colonize you brick by brick Leading by example Sun up, sun down Two hundred species die Crawled off a cliff There the first time Well I know the reasons I use them all the time From sun up to sun down I believe in the power of an ocean A trillion miles bereaved But there the first time There the first time Sun up, to sun down There the first time

    Calgary Flood Aid Concert 2013

    Does anyone happen to have a digital copy of the 3 songs Matt and the band played that month at the concert? It was broadcast live and I've been looking online, but can't find anything that exists.

    2018 Vinyls - April 6th

    Doubtful anything but WLRRR gets printed again. Wish they did but not expecting it. I bought 2 copies of LOES on vinyl when it came out. Now I can't find them in my house and haven't seen them for years LOL. I remember bringing one of them or maybe both to a concert in Ottawa at the NAC to get one of them signed during the LOES tour (but didn't bother getting it signed). I wonder if I left one or both of them at the concert venue LOL. That sucks because it would really sound awesome on vinyl i bet, one of my fav albums, i never got to listen to it on vinyl before i misplaced it.

    There The First Time

    How I try to interpret Matt's lyrics is to consider: - The context of the album as a whole, whether it's a concept album or has a central theme, how that theme might relate to the lyrics in a given song - What's been going on in Matt's life either interest-wise (ie: political events) or personally (ie: having kids) that he's shared around the time the song was written - Any general personal interests of Matt (ie: politics, soccer etc) or themes that he's talked about or sung about in the past (ie: mental health, the state of the music industry, US foreign policy etc) that might provide clues. Matt's always been really into covert operations in US foreign policy, he likes figuring out all secret CIA shit that's been done now & throughout the decades, likes figuring out a complex puzzle, and I think he likes making his lyrics like that too, a puzzle for us to figure out.

    There The First Time

    I've gone over the lyrics to all of the songs on "Something Like a Storm" numerous times. Some songs are a lot easier to interpret their meaning than others. Matt has a very poetic style of lyric writing. Often they can be extremely vague, and for some songs it's like he writes the lyrics for himself to enjoy and express and no intention for us to know, or it takes a darned English professor to extract the symbolism & metaphor etc. Some songs are impossible to interpret their original meaning because many of his songs can be about personal matters we aren't privy to. After learning the meaning of different songs through different interviews of his, there's just no way anyone could ever interpret the lyrics accurately for some songs because they were based on personal matters he never shared with his fans. This song I've tried to interpret with some vague theories, like immigration (and refugees) in the US and Canada, or possibly something to do with aboriginals, immigrants, European migrants to North America, and nationalism. It could also have to do with something cyclical about humans and their relation to the environment and humans as part of the whole animal ecosystem where it's a timeless battle for survival for all living things. I really am not 100% sure. Again, it's vague. As a listener it can be frustrating because I want to connect to the lyrics and to the artist and share in its meaning, but because of the vagueness it's impossible. An album like LOES was still complex lyrically but I found as a whole a bit easier to interpret with some work, and a genius of an album lyrically & musically. I like songs that are complex enough to take some work to figure out, but not so vague that it's possible to do so with some mental effort. Avalanche was an album like that. What do you think this song means?

    Stranger Things

    The show is very well done. I love the vibe and I'm not even a huge sci-fi person.

    There The First Time

    Not sure what its about either but really dig this song. I enjoy it live too with Matt on vocals only.

    Stranger Things

    The inspiration from the Silent Hill video games is pretty awesome. (ie; otherworld). I really like this show. They really do capture the early-mid 80's vibe here. Love the D&D stuff, reminds me a little of ET. Actually I feel like I'm watching a show that was literally made in the 80's. It's that good.

    2019 Solo Acoustic Tour

    Still no Sault Ste Marie show. Arg. Well my In-laws live in Chatham-Kent so I guess London is my only shot. North Bay is too far to drive for one show. At least if I see him in London I can make it a trip to see the In-laws. I think I do want to see this tour and treat myself for once. I don't really get out any more unless I'm volunteering or going grocery shopping since I do shift work. This would be a nice Treat.

    There The First Time

    This was a song I didn't think too much of when I first heard it but more and more I liked the style and uniqueness of it. Anyway, the reason I made this thread is because this song has really got me curious lyrically for some reason, it seems like a different topic/style than usual from MG. So I'm wondering, does anyone have ideas on what the heck it's about?
  15. Yup, that was last night and it was pretty amazing. I can see some people may be put off by the "no cellphone" policy but it was really refreshing. Once inside the wait was a bit slow but it's a good trade off to not have bright screens everywhere. To me Jack White will always be White Stripes and I enjoy his solo work but my preference is always to go back to "the old days" with Jack. Even with tightened security I still recorded and have finished tracking out the show.

    2019 Solo Acoustic Tour

    Really cool to see that Matt is pulling from a pretty extensive list for these setlists according to him this is just a portion of the list he labelled as songs he already can do. he also has two other lists of covers and other older songs he plans to rework. judging by that we may be in for some of the most unique and varied setlists we've ever seen on a tour! This definitely ramped my excitement way up, especially since he is already thinking and working on this and the tour is still three months away!

    Happy to see Sort of a Protest Song in there. I hope one day we'll get an acoustic Near Fantastica though lol.

    2018 Vinyls - April 6th

    Obviously there is still a few albums that are waiting release/re-release in a third and probably final run. White Light Rock and Roll Review Vancouver Lights of Endangered Species Arrows of Desire These are the studio albums that are not in print and are the most likely to still get released. Obviously WLRRR review is the most sought after as it is now the only studio album to not see a vinyl release. Im not sure where an Arrows release stands as unlike the rest of these reissues that album wasn't recorded on the Universal label. I doubt the two greatest hits albums will see any release although I would love to have Rooms on vinyl. I'd also love to see Massey Hall, but that would probably need to be a four record set and that kind of thing just might not be financially feasible as judging by the two record sets it would probably be priced over $75 making it a limited interest release in a series of records already defined as limited interest. The fact that the first two vinyl series contained all the albums that were in high demand on vinyl worries me that the third series could easily be dropped as the remaining records are definitely not ones considered Matt's most successful from a sales point of view. like many here I am fortunate to have Vancouver Lights and Arrows (although id buy the re-release too) so WLRRR is the only one I am really desperate for, especially since sonically it is probably the MG album most suited for the vinyl format. There was about 18 months between the first and second series and we're only about six months since the last release so based on that I could see a potential fourth quarter release in 2019. Although id love to be wrong and get them sooner.

    He referenced it recently on IG so hopefully.
  20. Looks like Chad couldn't make the rescheduled Foo Fighters date but I did. I didn't have tickets to the original sold out date in September and was diligent and monitored Kijiji for the last month looking for a reasonably priced floor ticket to show up and I found one. I haven't seen the Foo Fighters since the late 90's (Edgefest) and in two decades they haven't slowed down a single bit. Looking at setlist.fm prior to the show I was disappointed they were only doing 21-22 songs but what was missing from that is that their set clocked in at nearly three hours. Last night it was 2h50m and it was common to have some songs go for double or triple their runtime (Pretender was 12 minutes, Best of You was 11). I also liked that their encore wasn't a quick "off and on" either. They were off stage for over 7 minutes and it was close to 10 minutes before they played again. As Dave was running around, getting all areas of the arena in to the show I kept thinking how they are the definition of "entertainers". It wouldn't be a concert rundown without some links, so for those curious I have a song sample on SoundCloud and the full show has been posted on Dimeadozen: SoundCloud: https://soundcloud.com/sean-gursky/foo-fighters-all-my-life-october-22-2018 Dimeadozen: http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=633522 Next up for me is Jack White in November (saw the White Stripes five [seven if you include attending two secret shows in 2007] times in 2005-2007) but first time seeing Jack as a solo artist so I'm pretty excited for that.

    Is WLRRR ever going to come out on vinyl?
  22. Looks more recognizable and reminiscent here: This was published in January of this year.

    2018 Fall Tour Setlist

    I would love to see the cover of ahead by a century that Matt did for a calgary private show.

    2019 Solo Acoustic Tour

    Yeah, it would be nice to not be so crowded. And having a reserved seat is kind of nice too. Who's all going to the London show?
  25. Yeah like a rentable party band. I didnt recognize him either at first. I guess I’m still looking for the blonde hair and jersey.
  26. hoogie

    2019 Solo Acoustic Tour

    The seating will be different, but I asked a friend who's been there to watch the indie wrestling that's there sometimes, and he said it's fine. I've always wanted to watch a show from up there because it's way less crowded. It'll be strange to fight over a spot to sit. Guess I better show up when the doors open for once.
