Day 4: That's just swell!

Actually, today is the day we really hope it fucking isn't swell. They take my temp cast off today and take a look at the ankle to see if the swelling has gone down enough to cut open. If it has, I go into the theater on Friday for surgery. I never thought I'd be so excited about the prospect of someone taking a large sharp object to my skin, cutting me open and fiddling with my bones, but I need to get the fuck out of here.

In the spirit of today, I'm realizing I need to move along and return to basics. While I've been here, I've recommended hip hop, pop, and electro. It's time to get back to the fucking rock, and not just any old rock (I want a SHINY one!).

We're taking things back to the prairies and drawing on the sheer awesomeness of Alberta's Whitey Houston. For those of you who don't known how awesome the west can be, allow me to enlighten. WH is a 2 piece from Edmonton, featuring vocals, bass and drums. While this could sound like just another DFA1979, I assure you, westerners are far cooler than that.

The two are also members of the electro-punk group, Shout Out Out Out Out (I always fuck up the number of outs). Unfortunately, due to SOOOO's success (Juno nominations, !earshot placings), Whitey hasn't been incredibly active in the past year. The boys have claimed that they still have the intention of getting back together for a second album. That's right... you can't stay away from the rock.

I recommend you both watch the video below AND listen to my favorite track, Heavy Metal Parking Lot, on their myspace.
