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

Welcome To Manhattan

This summer when we were coming back from Florida we side stepped towards New York. For me it was the first time I saw New York up close, and I was pleased and upset at the same time. It reminds me of my own Canadian city Montreal, where things are cold at look due to the ugly coloring of the bricks, broken roads and sidewalks, but above all extremely dirty and dilapidated at the WRONG place. With this funny edit I underline one of them. ;)

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…
