}Nope, it's true. I'm in grade 12, and all the rest of the guys don't do anythingexcept hang around in the window of dischord and drink coffee. Ian works at
}Mark's Work Warehouse, and Cliff works at the agricultural college (i think).
}Other than that, They don't go to school or anything.
Weird. I just heard (secondhand) at the Green Room gig that a couple of
the guys (Rob & Joel, I guess) are taking at least one class in video
production at NSCAD, and I'd assumed that Cliff was a student at the Ag.
College (God knows why: it's probably more likely that he just works
there, since he doesn't look like a farm boy to me.)
Can these guys actually survive on what they get paid for gigs? (NOT!!) I
remember one gig in early summer when Rob said "I quit my job to go on
tour" I'll bet he wishes he was still pumping gas. I also have a setlist
from another show that's written on the back of a scrap copy of Joel's
resume! Actually got him to sign it after the gig. He was rather
desperate to find a job.
So, how does a high school kid get a SMU account and a CKDU radio show?
P.S. I plan to donate to a whole list of you guys (Waye, James, etc.). I'm
just trying to figure out if I should do the lump sum thing or give you
each ten bucks.
Anyway, now that you tell me the story, I don't know if I like these guys
so much anymore. It's strange that they'd ask you to leave over that.
Honestly, if you had to choose between a week or two of school and a cross-
Canada tour, you'd pack your bags, right?
