Good morning, er, afternoon…

Sean Stanley

How are you?  I’ve been far too busy and haven’t had a chance to post anything on here lately – worked on the TV show all week, editing footage of Jason Collett at the Black Dog Pub & Bistro in Bayfield, Wax Mannequin at the Black Shire in London, and Arkells from Phogfest in Windsor… good shows.  Will have footage posted as soon as possible on Rakehell Row’s YouTube page

Here a few quick things that came up lately…

New Kevin Smith interview with Mitch Albom, discussing the origin of the Hockey Song (Hit Somebody), and Kevin’s upcoming film adaptation of the wonderful Warren Zevon song… check out the piece over at Kevin’s homepage:

  • Gwarn Says:

    not only is that the best Album title ever (I really hope it’s a shout out to the NES game), the video and song are pretty entertaining!

  • SS Says:

    The singer of Vampire Weekend, Ezra Koenig, said it does have to do with CONTRA, the NES game, when speaking to the NME recently:

    Koenig admitted that he is fascinated by the ambiguous meaning of the title, noting that younger generations associate it with the computer game of the same name, while others think of the Nicaraguan rebel groups of the 1980s.

    “I did have a moment where I stopped and thought ‘Wow, everybody my age, when you say “Contra”, thinks of the video game, and everybody my parents’ age thinks of the counter-revolutionaries in Nicaragua”,” he told MTV News.

    He added that, being a child of the ’80s, he couldn’t help but be influenced by the 1987 Konami game. “Look, I was born in 1984, so I’m not going to name an album ‘Contra’ and not think about that video game!” he said.

    Konami represent.
