Nothing Worse...



Than being Irish but thinking you're Canadian...

I fucking love Craig Norris. He hosts the CBC Radio3 Video Podcast.
This one is a particular favourite of mine because it is funny as fuck.
Craig shows you what really goes down when bands play gigs.
It's not about the drugs, the fights, the groupies, the music, the Winehouse et cetera...
It's all about the mother-fucking load-in...
That is where the magic happens and Craig shows it to us in all of its glory...
Rollie Pemberton also makes an appearance...
Good times.

You can either click me and watch it on the net or right-click me and download it.


P.S. Hannah Simone is the very fit girl in the picture at the start of the post.
She's a Londoner (England London, not Canada London) but now resides in Toronto as she is now the nationally-seen VJ for the truly magnificent MuchMusic specialty service in Canada.

I can't wait to see what happens with the load out!

She is the only reason I watch Much Music now. I could stay in bed all day and just stare at Hannah.

Marry me?

Pedro said...

Dee, download the podcasts and video podcasts from CBC Radio 3. They're the shit.

Jack, I'm with you on that one man.

Q said...

I fucking miss Much Music.
Pedro , when/how/why did this Canadian obsession start? i love it.

Pedro said...

Q - I have no idea buddy. I visited Canada my entire life, from childhood right up to my current 22 years of life. The girls are stunning & artistic. The music coming from there cannot be bettered. The people are enthusiastic and friendly and the country is just fucking beautiful. It has everything.

Did you see the Grey Cup Final or are you not a football fan?

Q said...

Nah Pedro I missed it but thrilled that Roughriders won.I've buddies from Regina Saskatchewan. I do love football.Is there anything more Canadian than playing CFL in negative 20's.

Keep the Canadiana comin!

Pedro said...

Q - What the hell are you doing in Ireland? Seriously? If it's something important like college then fair enough but if you're actually living over here like a normal Joe then GET THE HELL OUT AND MOVE BACK HOME buddy...

C'mon man, you should know by now, this blog is all about the Canadiana and nothing else.

Pedro said...

Anon - Holidaying in Dublin?
Crrrrrazy.
Sure, enough Canucks pass through here playing gigs so I guess it can kinda feel like home anyway.

Q said...

You should probably get an award for having an Irish blog read by Canadians. Theoretically, this is a Canadian blog. ;)

Pedro said...

Q - So it's technically not a holiday seeing as you're working over here. You comment on Jim's blog so would I be right to assume you work in media also?

Jack - You being a dick on my blog constantly is the only award I will need. :D

Q said...

ex-media- funnily enough i'm wearing my ex-ad agency tshirt in work today.

got myself a gig with da government which is almost like being on holiday.

Pedro said...

Hahaha!

Brilliant. Canadian Embassy then, yeah? ;)
Surely you're not in cahoots with the Irish Parties?
