I love your goo

I have tried so hard to get into the Crash Test Dummies’ Give Yourself A Hand album. It’s not my thing, and I don’t like the “electronic” aspect of it. I guess I’m one of the more traditionalist fans that prefer the original CTD sound that I grew accustomed to from their first three albums.Continue reading “I love your goo”

Her Name Was Sam, a short film on the original CTD YouTube channel, run by Brad Roberts

Here’s one that boggles the mind and has no explanation. The short film begins with a narration by Brad, where he explains that two roommates need a third or they can’t stay in their place. One of these guys is – you guessed it- played by Brad! The other guy suggests his sister to whichContinue reading “Her Name Was Sam, a short film on the original CTD YouTube channel, run by Brad Roberts”

Brad Roberts talks Song-writing (Hookist)

Hook(ist) was a little project Brad did that consisted of collaborative song-writing and a contest of sorts. I didn’t know about it at the time, or i would have submitted a line, even though it would be crap lol. He is so sexy when he plays the guitar! However, he says he doesn’t play muchContinue reading “Brad Roberts talks Song-writing (Hookist)”

Brad Roberts facts (I think) 😜

I suppose that explains his fondness of sea shanties. What the hell is a sea goat? Per Wikipedia, “The sea goat is a legendary aquatic animal describedContinue reading “Brad Roberts facts (I think) 😜”

I mean, in my opinion, this performance of these threeContinue reading “Canada Day Festival 1991”
