Me and Teddy Ruxpin, Stirring Up a Ruckus

Maybe its just his persona but Asher Roth seemed kind of high on Much On Demand. You know, wandering around and not wearing shoes and all.

They really downplay his gingerness. That kid’s got some ginger in him. I wonder if they used special lighting in the “I Love College” video, because he was looking pretty strawberry today.

Anyways, this is why I love living in Toronto. Everything is here. I can watch Asher Roth on Much and know he’s like, twenty minutes away. I could have walked over there and saw him for myself if I wanted, but instead I settled for running into Geoff on my way to Tim Horton’s.

The Battle of Los Angeles

“Rusted from the Rain” was a shit video, though Billy Talent have consistently had terribly boring music videos, so I’m not at all surprised. Someone needs to introduce them to the Patron Saint of Music Videos, Marc Ricciardelli. First of all, two of the videos he did for the Cancer Bats, the ones for “French Immersion” and “Hail Destroyer” are probably two of my favorite music videos of all time. Now that I’m thinking about it, the one for “Pneumonia Hawk” seems to be in keeping with his style, so that was probably him too. And he just did the video for Alexisonfire’s “Young Cardinals” which was so fucking epic that it actually made up for the fact I think its a pretty bland single.

Its here and you need it in your life:

I love this man’s ability to take some mundane thing/activity (riding a bike, a wolf, being a lumberjack, riding a tour boat in Niagara Falls) and make it look so fucking hard. I’m sure the fact that Cancer Bats and Alexisonfire are pretty hard rocking bands fucking helps (and I don’t give a shit if you hate Alexisonfire, their live show is fucking amazing) but I think a lot of it is just him being awesome.

I’m clearly starting the Marc Ricciardelli fanclub here in case anyone wants to join.

Also you know you have seen MOD too many times when you can state with certainty that the video premiere is going to be at 5:45. I’m way too aware of how this show operates.

Totally went to the Eaton Centre today and pissed away a couple hours buying trash bags and light bulbs for my burned out lamp and a plate because I’m ghetto as shit and am living in summer res without proper supplies and finally realizing that some time within the next four months I will have a real place that I will need to buy real plates for. I also tried on a couple pairs of Cesario Highs that I just bought off Zappos for more than $115 less than they were at Town Shoes.

Ran into Chris on the way back from Tim Horton’s (the sandwich run went on as planned, unfortunately). Apparently he’s taking a fifth year because there are no jobs. Fucking great.

So What

I’m obsessed with Pink’s “So What.” When it goes into the chorus, how can you not be excited. SO WHAT! I’M STILL A ROCKSTAR. I just sit back and go, yeah, you know what, I am a fucking rockstar. Blasting that through my headphones I was the most empowered girl walking to Introduction to International Relations yesterday. Between that and that Lady GaGa song, its just been positive times these past couple of months.

I’ve also developed some sort of fast-forming mega crush on Carey Hart after seeing the video for that song. The hair is a little gay, but so what. He kind of looks like a tatted up Raine Maida. I find it kind of bizarre that he’s in the video for a song that straight up calls him a tool, but I guess he’s getting paid, so good for him. I find it more bizarre that he and Pink seem to be genuinely comfortable around each other. I mean the hug he gives her at the end where he holds her head? So heartwarming, why did you ever get divorced.
