Damn, Steve, I wish that Parkside thing could be on Tues, when I'm not working. I'd like to see Owl and Lemming, though. Re Boards of Canada, the musicians: I find it amazing that they created an entire sound and vibe out of those melancholy, wind-blowing-through-a-ghost-town scores of Film-Board-of-Canada films. Not just the films, but childhood memories of the films: the way it felt to be trapped in the house with the TV on a long afternoon. BoC's use of children's voices in fleeting samples heightens the mood. The plaintive analog synths are Madeleines recalling bomb shelter childhoods.

Monday night is a tough one for me too now that I'm a member of the rank and file. Tuesday mornings are a drag. Since I now have a print of Owl and Lemming in my possession, screening the film for you wouldn't be difficult. Just don't expect me to provide the Parkside vibe in my apartment.
I wish you could make it to the show, I heard from Byrne last night, he's probably gonna show up, said he's meaning to give you a call.
I'm looking forward to hearing that new Boards Of Canada. I really liked the first album when I first picked it up, but it began to grate on my nerves for some reason. I put it on a couple of months ago for the first time in a few years and found myself really enjoying it again.
