Coffee & Multitasking v.138 

:: Mid-E3 distraction edition! 

1. DUMB AND DUMBER SEQUEL [TonightShow]
I was going to post the trailer when it was released buuut it’s pretty raunchy. However, the return of these two dorks…can’t NOT get stoked…well…seeya! 

2. DFA1979 RETURN [Pitchfork.com]
My goodness I’ve missed these guys! Didn’t realize how badly until I saw this article!

3. BEHIND FIFA WORLD CUP [LastWeekTonight]
If you’re not familiar with John Oliver’s new HBO talk show, get into it! It’s only been like, two weeks I think…but he’s already given some amazingly deep insight into area’s of our society that need change! Along with some wicked humor, his YouTube channel is worth the subscription…

"America" by Simon & Garfunkel

"Glimmer of Hope" by Misery Signals

That time David Bracken serenaded us at The Bunker on a Friday Night…

That moment when one of your biggest musical idols responds to your question…
:: Yesterday Mike from Linkin Park was answering questions live on their Fbook page. I was scrolling through, chuckling at all the little kids with the same dang questions."When’s your next album""What’s your next collab""Can I get a shoutout"I mean, some of them I want to know as well, but they’ll announce it anyway…so I figured I’d drop a question that might be considered a bit more “real” or at least gather a more human response (than the one word echo’s he was probably giving with a *sigh*)What I got in return was awesome! Just another reason why I love those dudes so much!

CDN Govt Raising Price for Intl Music Artists - SIGN PETITION

"An additional $275.00 fee has been added by the Canadian Government to the application for international artists to enter and perform within Canada…"


:: This kind of tax hike, though it might seem small to some, is a big deal to a guy like me. I run a venue whose sole income is donations from the community; our concerts are non-profit. It’s something we started doing to introduce people in our city to something they might not otherwise be able to experience, usually because of either financial or travel reasons. Crossing the border is already such a major headache for everyone these days, and adding another bump in the road would most definitely deter traveling artists from coming up to a place that already can’t offer them as much as any big-name stadium/city. Venues and artists performing on that scale won’t even blink at this anyway, making it a direct shot at “the little guy” …help us out by taking 2secs to sign the online petition! 

TODAY ON THE INTERNET://25
