Labor laws be damned.
18-20 hour days without overtime are not uncommon.
It's always the goddamn same in the film industry.
Just some nonsense really.
But this day was differant,
It was fucking early. Too early.
While most people were pounding the snooze button,
there was a differant kind of pounding going on in North Vancouver,
I was riverside watching a 15 year old girl get raped by 3 hillbillies,
her father sat in his chair and watched proudly,
I had to turn my head away each take,
the actors were fairly convincing,
it was a rude awakening to say the least,
I wished i was at home sleeping instead of working on this bullshit,
turns out something good did happen that day,
it was that cold, rainy , rape soaked , morning , that i met Rod Bailey.
Rod was freelancing for the production company,
Who the fuck is Rod Bailey you say ?
Rod is veteran Canadian super producer "McEnroe"
Up here in Canada we have some talented motherfuckers,
the problem is that most of them are extremely humble,
Unfortunately being humble and music industry shine don't go hand in hand,
It was the same in the ski / snowboard industry, the most serious motherfuckers never opened their mouths,
never bragged or talked shit, just went out and layed it down.
It was the hacks that went to all the industry events and sucked industry cock that ended up getting the spotlight.
This humble factor is what i'm blaming for my sleeping on a movement in my own backyard.
McEnroe runs a label called 'Peanuts and Corn"
Non-fronting, grown man, believable hip hop.
This is exactly the music i want to hear at exactly the right time.
Hip Hop is stale as fuck right now.
Rims + Woodgrain + Syrup + Ghostriding Whips +Cookin crack is all some intriguing and enlightening subject material but enough already, shit's about as fresh as a crack whore panties at sunrise.
McEnroe checked out my blog a couple weeks back and said my politics reminded him of Pipi Skid.
Pipi who ?
Roddy then laced me with
Pips album Funny Farm.

No more sleeping on Canadian artists.
