Once More For FEELINGS


Last one...sighhh...press release below...

FINAL SUNDAY AUGUST 2nd
THE OSSINGTON (61 OSSINGTON STREET)
NO COVER! 9 PM-Late
With D.J. Body Beautiful and a midnight candlelight night recitation by Robert Dayton, Junior


We have been given a mild reprieve of one week before the Ossington shuts its’ doors on Sundays entirely for the rest of the month of August. Yes, this is the last Sunday. Will we be back? It’s not up to us. Allow us to put it thusly, we believe in The Multiverse so, even if we don’t come back in this universe, we will return in other universes. In another universe we are a multi-coloured Princess indulging in bon bons while whistling- no mean feat.
Speaking of segues, for this final Sunday we are going to get rather self-indulgent by playing a plethora of whistle music! That’s right, platters of music with whistling. We don’t know how to whistle ourselves so we have records that do it for us. Those who can’t, deejay. We implore you to come!
We will also be selling the latest edition of our self-help booklet Y2K Compatible for just 2 dollars. It is the bleakest edition yet: to suit the times.
Many people who have not previously attended have wondered what a Recitation is? It is a classic form that we have torn asunder with a fervor most Biblical, and all the subtlety of a cascading butterfly, to render spontaneous, going against its’ very name. It is a unique mix of eleven herbs and spices that remain a pathetic secret through unlabeled flavour packets. It is your Mother’s beckoning teat. Powerful.

Bask in them....
FEELINGS is a special night where we spin music that you probably won’t normally hear. A boutique mix of :
ELUSIVE DREAMINGS/PRIVATE PRESSINGS/BALD HEADED BALLADEERS/FREE FORMS/CAN CON CONCRETE/B SIDE EXCURSIONS/ELECTRONIC PRIMITIVA/EMOTIONS/EURO HORRORS/INTENSELY PERSONAL VISIONS/DEEP PSYCH/UN-EASY LISTENINGS AND BALLADS/PRISON SOUNDTRACKS/FANTASTIC JOURNEYS OF WONDER/ACTOR AS SINGER/
ORGAN-ISMS/NEO-BAROQUE
With a midnight candlelight night recitation by Robert Dayton, Junior
This will be ...special.

Will you play Guns n Roses' "Patience" then?

Funny how the nastiest and most addled comments are left by people who are "Anonymous." Don't even have the guts to say who they really are. Lame lame lame.

I TOTALLY get you Man. Sunday night at the Oz you kicked ass. There are too many other FAKE piss artists out there spouting their meaningless porridge, but you Rob, you're the REAL piss artist Bro!
Urinatural! Get it?

someone hates you Robert

and they're obsessed with pee and poop. Maybe your not bland enough for Toronto? even the anonymous shit talking is B-O-R-I-N-G here. If some pathetic milquetoast is threatened by you to the point where he/she goes online to leave anonymous comments then I definately think it should be taken as a sign that you're on the right path.

Thanks Magus! Ahhh blogging....I have been told that Anonymous commenters often forget that there is actually a real person writing blogs (even a blog that posts a glorified press release such as mine) and that's why they get nasty. This was pretty mild, you've had more than your fair share. I think the last Anonymous may have even been trying to be complimentary and was at the Ossington on Sunday where I had to handle a heckler during my recitation. The place was packed due to the long weekend and I was a tad worried about how the crowd would respond as many were clearly unaware of my regular midnight recitation. I don't remember all the ways that I shut the heckler down but back in 1991 Rick Bishop of The Sun City Girls taught me the perfect response to "You suuuck!" and that is, "I swallow, too" and I added "But that will cost you extra!" The crowd turned on the heckler and perked up to enjoy my Recitation. The heckler piped up again at the end of it but luckily I had Dwight Twilley's "Losin' You" ready to go so I dedicated the song to him and said some things to shut him down further. He promptly left with his two pals. Someone told me that I had a tough crowd. Not at all! It was a great crowd! They were really responsive and supportive and booed that guy to oblivion! And I even played over two hours of whistle music- pretty indulgent!
