  1. Thanks for the additions, I'll add them to the list! I'm also open to more suggestions as well.
  2. So I looked at the Rave & Drool podcast. I believe what I want to do is different enough from that podcast for it to be viable. From what I can gather, it focuses more on the bands and the 90's scene as a whole. While sticking to the 90's, I'm really looking to focus in more on specific albums from a wide variety of artists throughout the decade and have everything else revolve around those pieces of work at the core. Hopefully that clarifies things a bit -- I really have no interest in trying to present a definitive look at any band or artist's career since I think focusing on an album is a lot more finite and ages a bit better for repeat listens. Hopefully that makes sense. Either way, I'm going to continue with the project and would still love it if others could join in. I think that having more voices involved behind the scenes will help provide different perspectives and allow the entire process to be more fun. I think bouncing ideas off each other will also help foster more creativity too -- even though I have an idea of how I want to proceed, I really value other voices as well. I'll definitely need others to assist in making this a success too.
  3. Thanks for the head up on that podcast, I'll check it out to hear how they approach things. Guess I should've figured there was already a show tackling this subject.
  4. Hey everyone, I'm brainstorming a new podcast idea and was hoping for some help from people who are knowledgeable on here. I want to start a show that focuses on different albums from Canadian artists in the 90's. I grew up a MuchMusic kid through grade school and high school, so it was a large influence on me. I don't think it's a stretch to say that Canadian music in the 90's was a lot more interesting and received way more support via outlets like Much, especially with someone like Denise Donlon (sp?) at the helm. The end result was a Canadian music scene that was a lot more vibrant where success wasn't based solely on making it in the states. Maybe I'm talking out of my ass and it's nostalgia taking over. It's something I'd like to find out firsthand though. This whole thing is still very much in the embryonic stages at the moment but I will definitely need help getting it off the ground. I have limited resources (i.e. no money) and a limited knowledge of podcasting (I currently host Blind Luminations with my wife at https://www.blindluminations.com) but there is also room for improvement on my end. It's also a bit hard for me since I have been completely blind since fall 2001. This means visual elements on social media and even things like podcast/episode art get difficult. So I'm looking for people who share a passion for Canadian music from this time period to help me with everything ranging from research to social media promotion and art. Being able to make audio sound good would be helpful as well but I'm looking to become more self-sufficient with that (it isn't that my current podcast sounds like crap or anything, you can listen for yourself. I'd just like it to sound a bit better and end up being more critical on my own audio quality.) I'm hoping to tackle Beautiful Midnight in the first season. While I haven't figured out exactly what the format will be yet, I've toyed around with the idea of having just single episodes focusing on an album itself. Alternatively, one album could spin-off into several parts and multiple episodes. Using Beautiful Midnight as an example, you could do one episode setting things up and discussing where the band was in their career leading up to the release. The next episode could be about the album itself then be followed by an episode about what role the music videos played and then something else about the reception, how it spawned the online fan community along with its ultimate legacy. So this is my general idea and I just wanted to see if there was any interest there. I've put together a master list of 87 Canadian bands/artists from the 90's and pasted it below. Some are obscure, which is something I want to add into the mix. Some may not be 90's really (I opened the suggestions up to friends and haven't had enough time to verify some of them yet) and I plan on adding french artists as well. I would like to showcase at least one per season because it's an important part of Canadian culture. I'm planning to start a workgroup on Slack if people are indeed interested. Those who are will be able to join and we can exchange ideas there. Please leave a comment below if you are interested and I'll send you a P.M.. Here's the master list to conclude things: 3 Days Grace 54-40 Age Of Electric Alanis Morrisette Amanda Marshall Anyhowtown Ashley MacIsaac Barenaked Ladies Bif Naked Big Wreck Big Sugar BKS Blinker The Starr Blue Rodeo Bran Van 3000 Brian Adams Buck 65 Chantel Kreviasuk Copyright Crash Test Dummies Danko Jones Delerium Doughboys Download Econline Crush Edwin Eric's Trip Finger 11 Front Line Assembly Ginger Glueleg Gob Gordon Lightfoot Grapes Of Wrath Great Big Sea Hayden Holly McNarland I Mother Earth Jann Arden Jeff Healy Jet Set Satellite Jully Black Kathleen Edwards KD Lang Len Limblifter Matthew Good Band Metric Moist Our Lady Peace Prozaak Richie Hawtin Roch Voisine Rose Chronicles Rufus Wainwright Rusty Sarah Harmer Sarah McLachlan See Spot Run Serial Joe Shania Twain Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet Skinny Puppy Sloan Spirit Of The West Tai Bachman The Brothers Creegan The Gandharvas The Headstones The Leahy’s the moffatts The Odds The Philosopher Kings The Pursuit Of Happiness The Rankins/The Rankin Family The Reostatics The Skydiggers The Tea Party The Tragically Hip The Watchmen The Wild Strawberries Thrush Hermit Tom Cochrane Treble Charger Wide Mouth Mason Zombie Girl Zuckerbaby Just adding this because I forgot to ask for e-mail notifications.
  5. Yeah, I remember him saying at the time that it was about William S. Burroughs killing his wife and the strangeness of fame. I believe he mentioned how odd it was to him that he's such a revered poet who receives so much praise (he was even in U2's Last Night On Earth music video) but he flat out murdered his wife. Still, it gets overlooked and is a fact the general public really doesn't focus on.
  6. Awwww man, this sucks. I know it happened months ago but I'm just reading the news for the first time now (apparently there's a downside to catching up to the online MG fan community after leaving it for a few years.) Been listening to the Audio Of Being a lot lately and his playing on that record was stellar. I know it's been said to the point of redundancy but 2020 can officially go screw itself. Man... this one is tough to hear about.
  7. So I came to this late because I kind of disconnected from the online MG community awhile ago. Are there any recordings out there where Workers Sing A Song Of Mass Production is played live? I remember it popping up on the fall White Light Rock And Roll Review tour a couple of times. This was when Matt was touring with Melissa Auf Dur Moore (sp?) and Limblifter. I know there were a few excellent quality bootlegs from that run but don't believe TWSASOMP surfaced at the time.
  8. Indeed. I originally thought he debuted on July 21 but didn't realize until several years later that the character's first official appearance was in '97, not '98. So the 721 in the name should've really been 722. Maybe I should have registered under that name. :(
  9. So I listened to the online concert last Friday and was writing a review on my website... oh yeah, it can be found at https://www.blindluminations.com/streaming-through-the-side-door-my-review-of-matthew-goods-online-concert/ if you're interested. Anyway, in double-checking some stuff online, I came across the site and thought it might be fun to re-engage with the community here. I went to register my account... which is impossible without sighted assistance because of the captcha... just saying... you guys might wanna look into it. I thought it would be cool to make a grand entrance with my original username DudeLove721... only to find out it's already in use? The hell? So I'll be frank... I don't own a copyright on the name obviously and actually chose Ludicrosity upon registering here a long time ago. I don't remember why, but you can read me saying as much if you search for DudeLove721 in the forums. It's been so long that I might have even signed up as DudeLove721 before Ludicrosity, forgotten about it and just now realized there's a user with that name. My point is that I've been DudeLove721 on Lenard's Massage Board, I've been DudeLove721 on the Amusement Park Accident forums, I've been DudeLove721 on The Metro and even on Matt's site itself. My name is Marc, I've been a fan since '98ish, went blind, yada, yada... whatever It's me. What I'm asking though is: If the DudeLove721 account is mine and inactive, how can I get it back? If someone else is using my username... why did you steal it dude? That's kind of a dick move. (Oh and for those of you wondering why I don't use Ludicrosity, I don't have access to that e-mail anymore. Same goes for this DudeLove721 account if it's mine.) I know people may call BS on this since it's my first post or not care because they don't know who the fuck I am in the first place, but this is legit. I wouldn't create a podcast and website with a domain just to further legitimize my identity. Those who talked to DudeLove721 in the past know my story (i.e. going blind and all that stuff.) In closing, help make DudeLove721 great again... and um... let me become the President of Near Fantastica? No... just help me figure out this username thing... it'd be cool to know wtf is going on and get my MG community identity back if possible. Us SHOULDN'T remain impossible!
  10. It appears I can't edit my last post so here are some notes about last night's show: It may have just been me but I thought Alert Status Red was a tiny bit slower than usual… nothing that really changes the song at all but I remember thinking this at the time it was being played. Matt talked about his metal side-project (Pants Hammer) he mentioned on Facebook earlier in the day. Hilarity ensued, especially when someone in the crowd yelled out that he wanted to see (or hear) it. Matt responded that he did too and wished he could just stop the show to go work on it. Can't really do the banter justice here. I'm not sure if it was the smaller venue or what but Non-Populous sounded absolutely amazing. I heard it in person when Matt played in London on the Lights Of Endangered Species tour, but this blew that version away hands down. I think the arrangement is slightly different, it's still longer than the album version but the last guitar build-up didn't seem to be played quite like it was on the last tour. The guitar part after the first big solo and before the "into the wilderness" section was modified a bit too, which allowed the crowd to join-in with some claps… it's hard to describe but it created a neat effect. (I just remembered this last part this morning.) The crowd was really into Had It Coming. After the guitar solo, they added a part with just drums and the baseline pretty much. While this was happening, Matt got the crowd to sing the chorus -- it was really cool and added even more energy to the song. We're Long Gone is played in a different key live. Other than that, it's pretty much exactly the same as the studio version. Load Me Up always makes me think that it's going to morph into another song with the way the band jams in the middle -- last night's show was no exception. Crowd was really into this, as usual, and sang the MGM Grand verse. Apparitions was performed in a different key, at least from the album version. I know it's not the same key the Massey Hall version was in either but can't say 100% if he's performed it in this key before. It really stood out so I don't think he's done so at any of the shows I've been to. Aside from that, all of the songs sounded the same as they usually do live. It was a really great show, very loud and the crowd seemed to be into it. I was very pleased to hear Black Helicopter and I'm A Window as I wound up not being able to catch a full band show on the Hospital Music tour. Hopefully, Matt comes back to Windsor more often in the future!
  11. Here's the Windsor setlist, I'll edit this post with more information in the morning: Last Parade Alert Status Red Born Losers Non-Populous Had It Coming We're Long Gone Load Me Up The Future Is X-Rated Shallow's Low Black Helicopter Apparitions Weapon --- Giant I'm A Window Being blind, I did not record this show btw -- if anyone did, please PM me? :)
  12. Indeed I am! I'll probably be wearing a Matt Good t-shirt of some kind, although the whole being a blind guy at the concert will probably make me more noticeable than the shirt will. Things are good btw, just been really busy planning the wedding and looking at apartments in the area. It'd be awesome if you came and said hi tomorrow! How're things with you?
  13. Going to the Windsor show tomorrow and will try to remember the setlist to post here. Was there new merch on sale in Bala? A bit disappointed that it's somewhat of a greatest hits show but since they didn't rehearse together for tons of time, it's more than understandable. (And really... I can think of A LOT worse than a greatest hits show.) I was hoping to hear more of the new record since I don't think I'll be able to afford a trip/tickets on the fall tour (getting hitched in September) but oh well. I'm just hoping that it's a good crowd so that Matt comes back here more consistently. (It's been 13-years since he came here with MGB because Windsor sucks and has almost no decent venues -- London is usually the furthest bands/artists go when heading to southwestern Ontario.)
  14. Set Me On Fire was before Non-Populus in London. Other than that, the set is spot-on. I was away from home until now (actually travelled from Windsor to the show and spent an extra day to celebrate my anniversary with the fiancee) otherwise I would've commented here sooner. No VIP pass for me but the show itself was great. Some may bawk at him only playing 10 tracks in the main set, but since a lot of those songs are longer, it makes sense. I certainly didn't feel like I'd been ripped off anyway and I've grown a greater appreciation for the new album after hearing so many of its tracks live. Zero Orchestra and Set Me On Fire were the two highlights from the new record for me -- the latter actually silenced the entire crowd... I love it when Matt does that with the music. There seemed to be some drunk screamers, lots of "I love you Matt!" from men and women alike. The drug rant was pretty hillarious and was mostly light-hearted but it must've gotten on his nerves because it lasted for quite awhile. I was surprised with how crazy people went for Weapon. I know it's his biggest solo hit but that's the song that got EVERYONE standing and cheering hysterically... usually the MGB stuff does that more. While LMU and X-Rated got a huge response, I'd say Weapon got a bigger one. Hornets sounds amazing live and Rabbits was just awesome. I was actually pretty surprised at how good a crowd response Rabbits got. Despite being a non-single and just Matt with a piano, you could tell the audience was genuinely excited to hear it -- they knew how much of a live rarity it is. I knew Hornets wouldn't be the last song though, mainly because it's unreleased and it'd be weird to end a show that way. It was also the first show I've been to where he didn't play Hello Timebomb... and I didn't miss it at all. Was very surprised by Dan Wesley's opening set and enjoyed it a lot. Bought his latest CD today and am anxious to give it a serious listen. One last thing, I am not sure how the distribution system is these days for bootlegs or if fans still bootleg MG's shows. If anyone did tape the London gig though (as fans have in the past) could you please PM me? My apologies if I'm not following standard protocol here, it's been awhile. ;)
  15. I didn't read that dude's blog but I am confused... one of his tweets said he got kicked out of the MG show? Did he just not type properly or something?
