WTF?


Today I woke up to find that we have been nominated for a Juno. This is proof positive that there is a glitch in the matrix. For the unfamiliar, the Junos are the Canadian Grammys but even more conservative.

"Fucked Up formed in Toronto in 2002 by high-school friends influenced by hardcore bands like Minor Threat and NOFX"

I just spit root beer out my noise.

Do you guys get to go to the ceremony?

In the UK we always associate the Junos with the likes of Bryan Adams, so to see you guys nominated is something else. Best of luck Pink Eyes.

This always makes me cringe:

"merges elements of hardcore songwriting with up to 70 tracks of guitars, organs, winds and vocals, (including 18 guitars on the first single)"

Does having a shit load of guitar tracks automatically mean 'better'?

wait, does this have anything to do with the movie?

I checked with Damian in an earlier post if he was okay with me commenting on here, and he he's fine with it (see Do You Like To Laugh), so chill please.

Believe it or not, there are guys out there that can deal with it.

If Damien was gay and a girl would be after him then you'd not have posted this for sure. But maybe you wouldn't even listen to the music if Damien was gay....

For the record. I have no problem with anyone posting comments on here. And why does someones sexuality have anything to do with them making a comment about this post?

Also to address the bear following that I have: I am flattered.

of course it's sponsored by Pepsi since 99% of the world's consumers of Pepsi are French-Canadian.

can a Garnier-Fructis sponsorship for Jonah be in the offing?

I second "killing california". That show was the wildest and loudest I've been to. Loved it.

I really think you guys are on the cusp of something huge.

Hey Damien, so you finally set up the rival blog?! I interviewed you in Whelans, Dublin last year. Congratulations, good stuff. Here's a pic of us together in happy times.

Once Fucked Up win a Juno, that picture will be worth millions.

Adam said...

In my heart, it already is worth millions *sniff*
