Now that Mo-vember is over and my line of sight to my keyboard is no longer hindered by my gigantic facial hair I can finally resume blogging (Hannukah is saved!). What has a month brought us then? Well there were tears, there was laughter, love, heartbreak, amends, post World War Two Japanese expressionist author Mishima, a ridiculously explosive toilet, concerts, birthdays, gigs – and that was just Kevin and I. In all seriousness though we did do some cool stuff which will be presented in a style borrowed from Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs (which you should probably have seen by now):
Mr. Yellow (Kevin)
TYA’s renaissance man continues to reap the fruits of what was probably a little too much time alone in his basement as a child. He performed for a packed crowd as well as the youtube boys Wong Fu Productions. There guys have over a million subscribers and unlike other youtube celebs actually deserve them.
K.Lee also performed along with the Effusion a cappella crew and as an a cappella expert (shout out to Fresh Fellas A Cappellas) I can say without a doubt that the show was top notch, their rendition of Alica Keys’ Fallin’ brought me to quasi-religious ecstasy.
Mr. White (Mark)
A couple days later I had the chance to see another show: Watch the Throne’s Montreal stop. I don’t think words can truly describe that experience but if I had to pick one it would be hands down CRAY. They played N****s in Paris 5 times and a row and each time got better. There were sharks, there was fire: it was awesome.
I also had the opportunity to DJ outside of my bedroom in Montreal for the first time. Big thanks goes to to everyone who came out to support DJ Thousand Years and have some fun. You can stream and download part of my set below:
As for our Toronto and London fams I wouldn’t do justice trying to capture the romance, intrigue and adventure of their past couple weeks. But if I had to try it would look like this:
