In the Aeroplane over the capital

October 16th, 2011

I have a love/hate relationship with Ottawa’s Bronson Centre; they get such terrific music acts coming through and the seats are cushy… but I don’t think I’ve ever heard mushier acoustics. Counter that with my unabashed appreciation of Dan Mangan — you might have noticed it in some of my past posts about him.

So this past Friday, I ambled over to the Centre to catch Dan’s show in a pretty excited state — it is, after all, a lot rarer for me to be going out to see a concert with girlfriends, since having a 5-month-old has somewhat changed my social calendar lately.

To be honest, the sound did get in the way of my enjoying things as much as I would have in another room; but the show was still terrific, and the evening was made worthwhile by the encore set alone — from which both the videos below I took…

Dan’s cover of Neutral Milk Hotel’s “In the Aeroplane Over the Sea”:

And crowd favourite “Robots” — featuring two kids in the crowd who dressed up for the occasion:

It’s been so great to see Dan’s popularity grow over the past couple of years, from bigger shows to cover features, and even a Polaris nomination. This is one particularly hardworking and down-to-earth, not to mention talented, fella. Check out his new album, and best to do it somewhere with good sound.

More about that 5-month-old soon :)

    First of all I want to say awesome blog!
    I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.

    I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to
    figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or
    hints? Appreciate it!

    We’re sorry, we do not have a storefront
    or showroom. We do occasionally work trade shows
    where you can meet us personally and buy directly at our booth.
    We love meeting our customers face to face, so come on out and
    say hi if you can. To me, most of it looks VERY safe.
    Coconut oil is something my wife uses on her skin because she reacts badly to some
    moisturizers. Avacado oil is what I use on my scalp to rid myself of
    dandruff (we live in Texas and the Cedar trees can make your scalp a mess!).

    will come on in the front panel. The first 3 patterns are
    increasing vibrating patterns. This service is provided on News

    sex Toys for couples Not really. My Dad doesn snoop and even if he did come across anything like
    that he would probably leave it alone and tease me about it later.
    My best friend knows I have toys and where I keep them and she might decide to look
    to see what I gotnot really. Same here, except we also have the
    Stage, which mostly sits in the corner propped up
    against the wall. We have the Black Label Liberator
    shapes, so the stage is great for tie me up and strap me down sessions, but with all the set up involved we rarely use it unless the kids
    are spending the night elsewhere. We don get the ramp out too often, but we use our
    Wedge nearly every time we have sex.. sex Toys for couples

    cheap vibrators Another great thing about this babydoll is that it isn’t itchy at
    all. The cups, if you will, are actually two separate
    pieces that are only attached at the top where the bow is and across the bottom of the cup where the middle band is.

    The top layer is the pleated material while
    underneath is mesh. Another upside was that the vibe is small enough that you
    can tuck it into the tiny ‘pocket’ that most girl’s underwear has and be steadily stimulated in the comfort
    of your room. It’s great for use during cleaning and the like if you know that the main course (ie significant other) will be back in a
    short while. The g spot nub curves nicely against the
    clit. cheap vibrators

    male sex toys I have no intention of converting my boyfriend if he’s not interested
    or ready (I don’t think someone can “get” religion it’s not like going
    to the store and picking up a gallon of milk) choosing faith
    has to be a spiritual decision from the heart.

    Plus, it’s not fair to either of us. He comes to church with me on a fairly
    regular bases, but mostly because he wants
    to make me happy (I don’t like going alone) and not because he wants to learn or grow..

    vibrators I really don know how I handle a problem like
    this. I don use realistic toys and the ONLY dildos I own are glass,
    non realistic. I also cannot use huge toys.
    This herb has an interesting effect on women regarding their hair
    because it both alleviates hair loss in women as well as
    reduces excessive growth of dark facial hair.
    Saw palmetto has been prescribed for women suffering from acne
    and irregular menstrual cycles. It has also been used by women to enhance milk production in new
    mothers, increase breast size, and decrease
    menopausal problems vibrators.
