Quick update featuring love of Canada.

Hey, yall. Toronto was excellent. Some highlights included watching women swarm Eric Melvin like he was a bag of shit-smeared garbage in the middle of a raccoon colony late on Saturday night, or hanging out with the Lawrence Arms dudes in the back of a really cool bar on Monday morning where the bartender decided that we just didn’t need to pay for any drinks (Canadian hospitality!), and of course playing two really, really fun shows. The first one was my birthday party show at a small club (that was where Melvin barely escaped with his wang) and the second one was the full band playing on a giant outdoor stage located in a national historic monument that had been completely festooned in things that said Jagermeister.

There were dark moments as well. My hotel room smelled like there was someone in it actively smoking and it looked like that same person had blasted loads all over everything, if jizz burned things. That was the worst part. Everything else was really fun and easy. We even took a boat to the airport.

The thing is, though, that this weekend I’m about to play shows with my old highschool band (we were called Slapstick) and a solo show with the Alkaline Trio. The shit’s gonna be fun, but as of right now I’m a little braindead from the Toronto trip and I’m WAY behind on getting all my shit done, so I apologize for the lack of blogging right now. I promise to get this shit up, running and dick-jokier than ever asap.

It does bear mentioning that I am also undertaking a new web endeavor very soon that will be very, very exciting. For now, you can follow the Static Age Daily Twitter account and wait for details.

Okay, love y’all. Thanks Toronto! See you this weekend, Ska fans (oh jesus…)

    As if you didn’t even mention that super-cute girl who wanted to hear Dance of the Doomed. (And who’s pretty stoked that you ended up playing it.)
    Toronto fucking loves BK, you guys. He’s not mentioning that he was surrounded by an impenetrable wall of ladies the whole time he sat at the bar on Saturday night. I didn’t even see Melvin, but I’d have let the other girls have him. White-boy dreads just don’t do it for me.
    Anyway, you totally killed at the Bovine (whose full name is the Bovine Sex Club, which coincidentally shares the initials BSC), but Sunday fucking rocked. I’m pretty sure all the girls in the crowd had to change their panties after TLA’s set (or maybe that was just me). Regardless, you’ve gotta come back to the T-Dot once the new album is out. You can sleep on my couch if you want; it doesn’t smell like smoke and no one’s acid-jizzed all over it. Sucks that your hotel room was gross.

    thanks for doing that profiteers vid. so stoked for new lawrence arms album.

    • QueenBee says:

      Totally. I have video of BK playing it on his birthday at the Bovine but in the Exclaim vid there aren’t any fawning Philadelphians exclaiming about wanting to suck him off, so I can actually discern some of the lyrics. Also, that smile. Amirite, ladies? I’d probably do just about anything for that smile.

  9. poosey says:

    Willy, you are a very funny person. In my whole 24 yrs as a human, I’ve encountered 2x people like yourself. Are you a troll? HAHHAH only kidding you’re better than that. You are a Ball Sack First Hair. Yep, I very cruel trick on humanity. WELL FUCKEN DONE. you’re english is terrible and I wish you all the best with you’re endeavors. Alas, keep working out, keep doing the beep test, keep doing the sit up/push up routine. One day you might win the lotto and that day you will be like “OMG fuck these interviews fuck these asshollios and fuck shaving”, cuz the day it happens you will need to be yourself and be yourself and also be yourself. goodluck with everything.

    kind regards,

    your dad.
