If you haven’t been invited to the wedding, it’s probably because he doesn’t like you. You already know the Twitter handle to use to scorn him. You should also listen to blisteringly loud punk and metal instead of crashing the wedding!
This week, Cory and Chris talk a bit about and play tracks related to the 2013 Junos in Regina. They also manage to include a Nine Inch Nails cover by Devo.
With the Junos recently passed, we figured it might be nice to give an appropriate nod to the long-time Canadian award and music series. After fighting over which Beebs tune is the best, we pared down a few Juno-related favs that we think you’ll enjoy. We also agreed on a few ground rules including the following:
1. No Beebs tune is better than another.
2. No Beebs tune should be played on OpMan.
3. No Operation Manatee host will be able to stop the other from playing Beebs if he is away.
It wont all be about that, though. There will be a strong collection of the usual fun things. Kind of like that CD you have – you know the one – that fell behind your CD shelf and has been housing a family of spiders for the last 8 years, and you forgot it existed, but when you found it you were all like, “HOLY CRAP! I remember this! This is the best CD I ever owned! I need to listen to this RIGHT NOW or my head will explode!”
Stuff like that.
Tune in tonight from 11:00 to midnight or we will broadcast NUDE! Wait…… no.
Chris tells a short story about how his Juno 2013 experience went. It includes a bit of whining, but also mentions Corb Lund, Sarah Slean, Rose Cousins, Royal Wood, Jim Cuddy, Amelia Curran and more.
So… I wasn’t going to do any Juno stuff. Largely, I’ve never really cared about pop music contests and that’s only increased with time. If the junos weren’t in Regina this past weekend, I would have done what I do about them every year: not a god damned thing.
However, since it’s the first time the Junos have been Regina, in its 43-year history, I figured I’d better take what opportunity I can get.
JunoFest includes all events and performances outside of the main awards show. That’s all I had interest in attending.
That’s right, as long promised (threatened?), we @OpManatee have our own precious little piece of Heaven here on Regina’s best community radio station! Starting this very night from 11:00 PM to 12:00 AM, you can hear us play a no doubt riveting selection of some of our favourite tunes.
That’s right, Regina. When things go wrong and it seems like the world is coming to a brutal, horrible, community radio-less death, they call us: Operation Manatee – and while we may not save the world, we will at least save you from pop radio.
Chris and Cory have lined up a batch of great music (mostly new rock, some electro, little bit of weirdness and other selections)! It’ll be spectacular!
Man Man is an experimental rock band that you and I should probably go see in concert soon!
1. Looks like a really fun time!
2. There is some pretty fantastic moustache going on in that band.
3. They play a strange assortment of percussion instruments/noisemakers.
4. I’ve heard they really know how to involve an audience.
5. It’s better than a punch in the face (unless that punch came from someone cool like Will Smith)
