I'm Logan (21). Born in Canada, raised in America, and this is everything from then on. I'm in film school, but all I really want to do is work on a boat and write. My favorite film genre is James Bond.

If for any reason you want to see what I do at film school, here's my Vimeo page.

For those brave enough, I have a writing blog that I sometimes update.

I also run a blog called Looney Tunes Stills where you'll find gifs of Mickey Mouse cartoons.

 

The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald by the Rheostatics

I was listening to the original Gordon Lightfoot version of this song when I remembered that I love the Rheostatics cover so much more.

We Want To Be It by The Tragically Hip

I made drip coffee at work today.

Now this is stuck in my head.

The Deep End by Hannah Georgas

Every time I listen to Hannah Georgas I always say, “This is good,” with a touch of irony.

(It’s because it’s the name of the album this is from. And it’s good. That’s why it’s ironic.)

One Night in Copenhagen by The Tragically Hip

As loyal as a fruit fly
You mutter to yourself,
'You talentless fuck,
Good fucking luck,
Good fucking luck.’

I’m just gonna rant and rave here.

Since completely rearranging my backpacking plans this summer solely around a Tragically Hip concert in Amsterdam (it wouldn’t be the first time I revolved a trip around The Hip) I’ve been listening to The Hip all day and I’ve picked out a few more reasons why I love them. But don’t worry! It’ll be in a Read More break, safely hidden from your beautiful eyes.

Gift Shop by The Tragically Hip

This song is so mystical. This is one song where I actually prefer the album version compared to hearing it live. I love the energy when it’s live, but I feel like it’s supposed to be a sleepy-eyed song that slowly lulls you awake.

The beautiful lull,
the dangerous tug
we get to feel small
from high up above
and after a glimpse
over the top
the rest of the world
becomes a gift shop

Through & Through & Through by Joel Plaskett

When I saw Joel Plaskett tonight he attached an anecdote to this story about a radio host in Halifax who was running a show one night that consist of songs with stutters written into them.

Joel said this song wasn’t on the show, and he was pissed.

So I saw Joel Plaskett tonight.
It was… Quite the experience, to say the least. This is just the preliminary, “Hey this dude that I REALLY admire played a show, and I was there, and I loved it!” post.
First of all, he is SO MUCH TALLER in person.
Second of all, there will be a ridiculously long follow-up post to this in the near future. It was a night full of an interesting range of emotions for me and a pretty great story if I do say so myself.
The bottom line is, I got to meet one of my idols!!! It could not have been more appropriate timing; the screenplay I’m currently writing is very heavily inspired by his album Ashtray Rock.

My Music At Work by The Tragically Hip

And so starts my 60 hour work week.

On my March Break.

Yeah, it’s lots and lots and lots of work.

But also lots and lots and lots of money.

I’m still debating whether I should save the money or reward myself by buying the wide-angle lens I want to use in Ireland.

There’s time to think about that.

In the meantime, I don’t know about you,
But I’ve got some work to do.
