Blue Flowers

I'm trying to play more guitar these days. I'm trying to eat healthier too but mostly I'm trying to play more guitar. The acoustic has been slumbering like a bear in hibernation as my shiny new/used Fender Jazzmaster is getting all the attention. I can't help it. I'm in love with it. The funny thing is my roommate/ bandmate Aaron Riswick had it in the house for six months before I even picked it up. Bill Priddle (of Treble Charger) lent it to Aaron to mess around with over the winter. He was ...

Head Shots

Posted by Emily Gleeson on Saturday, February 26, 2011,
Sports columns, sports writers, sports broadcasters, sports coverage - is all talk. There has been so much talk, talk, talk about the fate of bad head shots, or even hard clean ones, in an NHL that boasts a faster-than-ever game of hockey . Sydney Crosby: the golden boy holding a box of timbits in one hand and Canada's Olympic hockey gold medal in the other is laying on the couch right now in his parent's home in Coal Harbour Nova Scotia still suffering from a bad concussion...or two. First w...

To Be Young... and Female

Posted by Emily Gleeson on Thursday, February 24, 2011,

The only reason I heard about the brutal sexual assault of CBS news correspondent Lara Logan was because I was listening to NPR late last night while driving. I try to stay tuned in to the news of the day but honestly, this was the first I had heard about an incident that happened on the day that Mubarak stepped down: a day that was supposed to be about Egyptian Independence...perhaps CBS wanted to wait her story out, why post two big stories in one day?

I'm not saying I'm Lara's biggest foll...

It Pays Off To Get Picked Last

Posted by Emily Gleeson on Wednesday, February 23, 2011,
Well the Leaf's just won another game beating the New York Islanders 2-1. It was a tight game but Phil Kessel scored the clincher late in the third after a lot of good pressure from the team. Leaf's fans (those left) will say Kessel has finally lifted himself out of a funk and I think it has to do with winning that car for being picked last during the all-star game. It looked cool anyway, and the guy has actually scored...a few times! It must be the car! Sure, it's a possibility that he was s...

It Is A Bad Time To Be Poor

Posted by Emily Gleeson on Wednesday, February 23, 2011,
If there's one band I have never fallen out of love with it's the Rheostatics. They are one of those highly acclaimed but unknown Canadian bands that were popular during the prog-rock movement around Toronto in the 80's. The only radio stations that ever play them are The Edge late at night or CBC radio 2. They just aren't that popular, and they never were. They never made much money. But albums "Melville" and "Whale Music" are number 5 and 4 respectively on ChartAttack magazine's top 50 Cana...

Soundscape

Posted by Emily Gleeson on Monday, February 21, 2011,
I watched a movie called "Radio On" recently.



There is a stark but luminous quality to the movie, filmed in 1979 post-punk Britain and co-produced by Wim Wenders - the great German director/ writer. (See: "Wim Wenders: On Film" great book.) Anyway, its a story of a radio jock who goes on a spiritual road trip of sorts, and what grabbed me was how sound mixed with landscape in this film. Certain audio would work with such things as swooshing windshield wipers, or a long view of a train travell...

Snowscape

Posted by Emily Gleeson on Monday, February 21, 2011,
I took this picture a couple of weeks ago. It's the view from my backyard. I like the snowy rooftops and the hanging towel on the clothesline. I think it's been there since they went to the beach last summer.
