    You think you've got it bad? Try living up here.

    1. The main music station is MuchMusic. Just like MTV, except they are REQUIRED to play as much Canadian content as they can. And since there are NO good Canadian bands, well, you get the picture....

    2. I have digital cable and get MTV. Problem is, it's MTV Canada. Literally all we get are shitty shows like Fanatic and Cribs, and the only videos they play are on Select, which plays the same 10 videos 5 times a day, 7 days a week.

    Video killed the radio star......

    Imagine all the frat boy meat heads, and dumbasses who will be sporting string cheese shirts and shit after that show comes out...

    It will be sad....its not like i dont hear the string cheeese rendition of gin and juice at every fuckin party, and kids goin, ooh dude i love this band theyre so fat...

    And uh yeah, what other songs do you know by them?
    Yeah thats what i thought...

    I hate people.

    you da man, shameless. hitting any shows this summer?

    cool party trick: when they put on gin and juice, inform them that its actually 'the gourds' playing it, and watch the smile fall from their faces, and the SCI shirt fly off their back. no more dumb SCI fans

    tah dah!

    i really hope this mtv show is a hoax. really really really.

    Im still trying to learn everything i can about the music, a friend got me into stuff like bela fleck and shit about a year and a half ago..
    You heard the blue grass sessions? good stuff...

    ALSO, check out dj Harry "the string cheese incident remix project" i really liked it.

    any recomendations?

    Oh yeah, and i prolly will try to get to anything in my area...

    You remember when string cheese(i believe it was the show, while back, it had alot of people with em) had the guy in the background painting while they played, he had like a huge giant broom like dealie and busted out this big ass portrait of jimmi hendrix? Maybe it was just for the specific show i saw, but it was pretty damn sweet.

    i usually cant stand remix albums, but ive heard nothing but rave reviews about that dj harry disc. i'll have to check it out.

    i still need to hear bela fleck, is 'the bluegrass sessions' the name of an album? let me know which one to get, cus i really dont know where to start, i'll walk out the door right now and pick it up. ive heard they have a really good live album out, whats that one called?

    i dont really know of any other 'jamband' albums that would be good to pick up, honestly. i pretty much stick to phish and dead if im going to buy something. i have a few SCI, umphreys mcgee, and disco biscuits shows, but no albums from them, other than sci 'carnival 99'.

    drop me an email, maybe i could try to hook you up with some live stuff.

    i stopped watching mtv 5 years ago. its horrible now, it used to be so tight. im glad im so ignorant to its programming now...its all bullshit. whatever happened to YO!, headbanger's ball, rude awakening, and jams? remember oddities? the head was a dope show. then they had just weird shit like dead at 21, aeon flux, and the maxx, but it was all good cuz it was different. i actually miss the old mtv it was good entertainment that actually showed music videos. now its seems like a hipper WB.

    BET is goin the same way. BET sucks ever since MTV bought it out. 106 and park is just horrible and i totally saw i show like that comin since the bought out. i cant believe they dissed tavis smily like that, he was so great to watch. the basement is just wack now, but that probably has to do more with the fact that mainstream hip hop music is really fuckin wack now. there used to be some funny ass shows on BET, especially "sparks." needless to say iv quit with BET all together now too.
