Any vancouver peeps been to the PNE forum for a show lately? I haven't been in years, but it sounded horrible last time I was in there*. Wondering if it's worth putting down the cash to see Portishead if the sound is going to suck balls. Deadmau5, Primus, Phoenix have played there in the last year so maybe they revamped the acoustics.
*Disclaimer: I was seeing Alexisonfire, who I hate, so it might've sounded horrible to me wherever.

Fuck yeah Heathers. Love that movie.
Rubber is fun, but don't you think it gets a little boring? In concept, i thought i'd never get tired of watching a telepathic tire killing people/animals, but I wish they'd come up with more interesting ways to do so. Also, I'm so fucking over movies/art that promote and celebrate randomness and pointlessness, and then blanket criticize everything else (for being pretentious i guess?). It's pretty juvenile. I do love the line "Why, in Oliver Stone's JFK, does the president get assassinated? NO FUCKING REASON" though. The ending is pretty badass too. As is the soundtrack. Stephen Spinella rules too. It's a good movie i guess.

Man, October is looking pretty amazing for shows in Vancouver. Here's what I'm trying to get tickets for so far:
Oct. 1 - Kaiser Chiefs Oct. 3 - Pains of Being Pure at Heart Oct. 4 - Girls Oct. 7 - Cut Copy Oct. 8 - Wild Beasts Oct. 12 - Stephen Malkmus Oct. 17 - Frank Turner Oct. 24 - Portishead Oct. 25 - Foo Fighters
and the end of september is looking awesome as well, Broken Social Scene, Bon Iver (who is sold out, and also playing the same night as James Blake and Pearl Jam. wtf?), and Arctic Monkeys and Smith Westerns.
