Wynard? Why not?

These kids were rocking out on Whyte Ave in Edmonton the other day. Pretty awesome. I eagerly await their inevitable beef with Smoosh. Otherwise, various notes of varying interest...

1. The trip's greatest find so far: A genuine Al Tucker mug from his time with the Seattle Supersonics. Purchased in Edmonton. Probably about 40 years old. Completely inexplicable.

2. My CD haul so far: Aretha Franklin - Live at Fillmore West, The Hidden Cameras - AWoo, OutKast - Idlewild, Sam Roberts - We Were Born In A Flame (replacing lost copy), Factor - Candy's .22, Boyz II Men - Cooleyhighharmony, Elastica - Elastica, Josh Rouse promo CD/DVD, Charles Manson & Family - The Complete Studio Recordings, A Girl Called Eddy - Tears All Over Town EP, John Frusciante - To Clara, Nirvana - Nirvana (replacing lost copy), D'Angelo - Voodoo, Gord Downie - Battle of the Nudes.

3. If you should ever find yourself in Saskatoon, try the Filet Mignon at Mykonos. Phenomenal. I'm going to go ahead and call it the best Filet Mignon in the city. Nay, the province.

4. Every girl in Western Canada is not flirting with you. This is an important point. People are just friendlier out here, ok? Don't get confused.

5. I wish I knew more people who had spent time in Winnipeg so we could have a meaningful and measured discussion of this city's merits. (I dare say it's my favourite Canadian city west of Ontario. There. I said it.)

6. Here's a fun thing to do: Roll into a city (any city), find its most expensive hotel, stroll up to the person behind the front desk and insist that you overpay for a room there. You won't be disappointed.

7. Those people who told you about driving across the Prairies? They were not kidding. About anything.

8. Ever get the feeling Hall & Oates are secretly stalking you? No? Uh. Us neither.
