Hobo Gauntlet Radio Episode 13

This go round it's a marginally less annoying episode of Hobo Gauntlet Radio because I've chosen to speak so little, I don't speak at all.

Instead, we'll hear from bands including Future Islands, The Stranglers, Stars, Arcade Fire, Love and Rockets and one of my favourite new'ish tracks from a band called Young Rival(which is at 33:20 to be precise).  This episode of HGR is exactly fifty one minutes and eight seconds.

About six months ago at work I saw a friend's brother, Tim, around the office. I had only met him a couple of times, but after chatting with him it turned out he had gotten a job in another department. Every couple of days since then I'd see him around here and there, just saying "hey Tim, how are you man? " know.. that sort of small talk. He was always friendly, saying hello back, and then we'd go our separate ways. About two weeks ago I was having lunch with colleagues in the work cafeteria when TIm walked by, so he stopped to say hello, and I introduced Tim to the group..we chatted a bit and then he walked away.
Last night I bumped into my friend, Tim's brother. I said "ya I didn't know your brother had gotten a job at the same company - small world". "Ya", he said, "Scott seems to be enjoying it there".

Let's not all start %#&^% each other's #@%^&.....

I find Canadian media coverage of Trudeau's visit to DC embarrassing. It just makes us appear so desperately wanting approval from the coolest kid in the class. I get it - it's all largely symbolic and no real "talks" went down, and I suppose if it helps this country in some shape or form, such as reminding American tourists to come here, then I guess that's a good thing, but I just had to step away from CBC's nauseating coverage yesterday.
On a related note, Mike Myers looks pretty damn good for 78.
