Make Your Exit…

“…Ambient indie rock, saxophone included… An amazing show… Also some of the nicest people I’ve ever met…” -Much Music Review
They have voices like angels… and then the instruments… Oh man… I’m in my happy place right now because of these five extremely talented twenty-something year olds!
Group Members: Jeff Buckley – lead vocals, guitar: Mike Dellios – bass: Steve Dagg – drums: Skidboot – guitar
“Make Your Exit is unlike anything you’ve heard before, yet it won’t be hard to wrap your head around… they showcased a sound that was not unlike the many collective type bands that our country has grown synonymous with… an example of art-mospheric jazz tinged brass rock culminating in a soaring climax…”It’s Not The Band I Hate, It’s Their Fans Review

I could use all kinds of fancy words, and “music lingo” to describe the awesomeness that is Make Your Exit, but I don’t see the point as their music needs no fancy words! However, I will say that their music is pretty f’n dope… the best part about it is, it’s so honest; which is hard to come by nowadays, in a time when artists are painting pretty or not so pretty pictures of life (their lives). But just because it’s not honest doesn’t mean it’s boring. Quite the opposite actually. Their sound is noisey, aggressive, but modest and sweet all at the same time!

Thicker than a Snicker?

For all you ample and curvaceously blessed women I have something for you that’ll make you happier than the day you discovered that really sexy bra that didn’t kill your shoulders, or suffocate your breasts! 
They say it’s almost impossible to find a chic dress that’s comfortable and compliments a curvy womans’ shape, but I say there’s no such thing as impossible! That doesn’t mean you should go squeezing into something that was made for a girl with no booty, hips, and tits. There are tonnes of elegant, sexier optipns that will sit nicely/comfortably on your hips 🙂

RIP Jacksoul

Haydain Neale was 39. He was the Juno Award-winning lead singer of Jacksoul. He died of lung cancer. The popular Toronto-based singer had spent the last two years undergoing extensive rehabilitation and therapy after a serious traffic accident. 

In August 2007, a car collided with his Vespa scooter, leaving Neale in a coma with head injuries.

His rehabilitation was slow but steady. Over the last six months, with the support of his wife Michaela, daughter Yasmin, and bandmates, Neale was able to finish production on the album he started almost three years ago.

Why is everyone dying? Life is precious and never ever wait on your dreams and let someone tell you no.
