More CanCon Flashbacks

Walking down to local fave hangout Cafe Taste for a lovely roasted goat cheese & pine nut salad accompanied by a Malivoire Pinot Gris (or two...) and noticed street posters for the annual Parkdale Arts and Crafts Festival at Queen & Cowan this weekend.

Looked closely at the poster and had one of those odd Serendipity moments. Since the rock god Leatherhands addressed SheenaVision stakeholders and resurrected the fame of Cats Can Fly, I've been rummaging through the old cassettes.

Looking for an 80s CanCon band that haunts me still. Yes, Sheena loves The Spoons. Found the cassette, but it's busted. And now they're playing blocks away at the Parkdale Fest Sunday night. And I have a work thing and have to miss it. FCS.

One of the guys I went to aviation college with tells a story about the spoons renting their hangar and airplane for a video shoot. He described it as one of the weirdest things he'd ever seen... ;-)

Also, since you have so many ex-musicians lurking here on Sheenavision, I thought that I might pass this along... Former members of the Turtles discussing the more trying aspects of the business end of the music biz.

Speaking of CanCon- when are they finally going to come out with the Rita McNeil Inaction Figure I've been patiently waiting for, for years now?

When you're finished shaving your arms, could you update your frigging blog?
