La Gachette – MontrĂ©al (French Punk Rock)

I present you a very interesting Punk Rock song called “MontrĂ©al”, performed by the group La Gachette and it is their first video since their inception. Sure there are many videos of them on Youtube but they are merely pub filming with poor sound. Talking about sound La Gachette is pure Punk but to many it is not completely true, that is because you have to learn Quebec’s Punk Rock distinctive sound just like Quebec is distinctive itself from the rest. Nowhere else in the world you ear this type of Punk Rock music and that French or not.

The lead singer of this group is Erik, the person with the French beret seen on the first still photo of the video above. On a daily basis we use to see each other because we both worked in the construction business, last news I had of him he was still in that business. I wish him the best so he can live a better life with his family, these people are hard working people earning every penny with sweat and pain, not easy after a day of hard labour to present a show on a Friday night for people to enjoy their weekend.

You can listen to more songs from La Gachette on their website: La Gachette

Boxing Day Collateral Damage

This time what makes the news by surprise is actually a murder reporting case in London, UK; on days supposedly sacred in a sense. Aren’t the vast majority still religious in England? Aren’t you all supposed to behave? What is wrong with you people? Why can’t there be respect? Why can’t these stores be prepared for such events? Why open doors like gates retaining animals? Why can’t there be a numbering system for these days alone? Why isn’t police presence augmented “seriously” enough to sway these possible actions? This is not something new, this has been going on for years now, so do not tell me no one saw it coming. The difference is that with years, people do start to realize how these days are in general, thus tension mounts each year naturally, as people start to go to these shopping sprees with a pre-winded mind.

In the United States same story, again a spike in violence, but what is new on this side of the continent? Not much, same old crap different year.

Here in Canada one of the worst things that happened is a bunch of shoppers got egged while waiting inline outside a store, most probably done by someone opposed to capitalism or other elements. Either case, it is still mean for any entity to act as such, it is stupid and above all has no meaning whatsoever. Instead, if you have a message, write it down, pass it on as flyers, some will read, some may give you right, but with these types of actions you go nowhere other than possibly jail. Technically speaking it is pure violence since an egg shell can actually render someone blind, are some of you that unintelligent? Oh Canada!

Pass And Score

Here’s a cheer up composition for all unconditional fans, me first. As I write this there are still over 16 hours of wait before the first game between the Flyers and Boston. Good Luck Flyers !!!

Image Explanation On the left side the players is Arron Asham #45, he’s trying to pass trough Bryce Salvador #24 in game five against New Jersey. Take note of Arron Asham’s flexing hockey stick, nice image. (Original photo by Jim McIsaac/Getty Images) On the right side its Brian Boucher #33 looking at the center timer screen during a timeout, again in game five against New Jersey. (Original photo by Andy Marlin/NHLI via Getty Images) On the far right, that’s Rocky’s statue, strong icon of Philadelphia and I personally take it as a symbol of determination. In the middle I inserted the Liberty Bell, the reason is that I found amusing changing some letters and make it more for the occasion. On the original picture the inscription on the Bell reads Pass And Stow, I changed it to Pass And Score. ;) The rest of the image do not need an explanation…
