There'll Be Talk! There'll Be Action!
Zoilus Demanding Satisfaction!

Last night: Cancer benefit, at der Boat, featuring Pyramid Culture, Final Fantasy and the I-love-world narcotic that is Ninja High School. Excellent sets from all three (new PyCult song topic: lab-grown meat; their complaint? "artificial, not sacrificial," ie. the band is pro-animal-sacrifice, like any good pyramid culture). But mainly I am forced to post to say that, at the end of a set that incorporated Owen's newest strategy in which looped keyboards join the looped violin, Final Fantasy covered Destroyer! Specifically An Actor's Revenge from Your Blues. (An album I already knew Owen admired very much.) As I was watching, perched atop a chair in the middle of the crowded club, and the understanding of what was transpiring dawned upon me, it felt a little bit as though this website had collapsed in on itself and created a cosmic sinkhole of exponentially expanding mass. Regular readers will understand why anything further I could say about this development would be redundant, like a series of infinitely regressing images in a mirror.... Definitely made my week.

Tonight, at the Boat, there's another highly Zoilusian event taking place - a "live mashup" of Ninja High School and the Afrobeat band Ultra Magnus. Which of course feels very much in the spirit of the live mashup series I used to run, Tin Tin Tin. (Members of both of these bands participated in Tin Tin Tin shows more than once.) Rumour has it that another T.T.T. alumnus, the very fine M1 Academy MC, Masia One, might bumrush the show, too, so she can show up Matt Collins' wack flow.

Oh Toronto, I'm awfully fond of you.

Au contraire, please continue with the frequent Final Fantasy updates! Those of us living south of the border don't get to see him as much and need to be kept in the loop. (No pun intended.)

Owen covering Bejar?! hope he doesn't get bored of doing that when he finally hits Vancouver in September.

Just for the record, we're not pro-animal sacrifice. We just report the facts, it's not up to us to decide if something is right or wrong.

Well, except for Aspartame. That's definitely wrong.
