So mr.ska, you like ska yes? :fsm_rock: (i think we need a skankin' FSM thingy BTW)
If you by any chance don't listen to ska, then you will have to be ground up and turned into sauce. or I just wont think your as cool as when i first saw your name. One of the two.

But your a pastafarian (and a canadian) so even if you don't like ska you will still get like 1000 cool points.

Believe it or not, the name came well before I was even aware that there was a genre of music called "ska". Rest assured (and gimme the extra cool points) I do appreciate ska music, although have yet to really crack into it and explore. (Any good suggestions I could pick up off iTunes to try?)

How's Deadmonton? Haven't been out there in like 11 years. Almost exactly.

Then you certainly want to listen to The Planet Smashers. It's a Anglo-Montreal band and they are god damn good, especially on Gigs, but also on CD, of course. I really really recommand them! They probably go to Waterloo every once and a while... I mean, they used to come to Sherbrooke at least twice a year... I wouldn't believe it if you told me they never came to Waterloo. Or then, you would have to make it happen! ;)

Caught the Planet Smashers opening for Guttermouth a while back in Calgary. Missed most of the set pre-drinking, but they were still good.

It's not strictly ska, but if you like a little punk, too, check out Choking Victim (start with the track Crack Rock Steady... it's a little more ska than most). They're split up and reformed under a couple of different bands now, but the album "No Gods, No Managers" (just Monsters??) is still my all-time favorite, any genre.

Well, it seems that Alberta is fairly well represented, oddly enough.

looks like alberta is going to be the pastafarian province.
As for ska look for The Slackers, Catch 22, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, and The Toasters. I'm not sure if they are all on itunes and i cant check because I am at school.
I was so bummed when I found out I couldnt go to the guttermouth/planet smashers gig when it was in Edmonton. Apparently it was freaking awsome. But i did see the planet smashers with catch 22.

I've just been touched by His Noodly Appendage in Oshawa, Ontario. I must admit I feel relieved, enlightened and a little snackish.

Happy to have found my way into the light...

Just found this thread.

Hi from Toronto (well, not quite, but the "Greater Toronto Area" as they call it).

Yarrr, eh?

And yarr to the fellow in the Shwa.

Yarr.

Heh, ran into you so many times on the forum, I assumed you were on the list.


Alberta Crew: Anyone interested in getting together and spreading the word at the Global Marijuana March in Calgary?

It seems to me that there might be a few "open-minded" people at an event like this.

Hi Doc,At the momnent i'm in Toronto,I've also spent a goodly amount of time hopping around BC and Alta as well as touring this great and beautiful country of ours some years back.I feel all Canadians should do the tour to see for themselves the magesty of the landscape and all the delightful folks here.Heep up the good noodles :worship: Ps Are you a GP?If so you may know a bunch of Dr. type friends of mine.

I'm not a real doctor, but I play one online. Actually, my screen name is an anagram, but "Doc" is also nautical slang for the ship's cook, and I'm one of the more seasoned semiprofessional pasta cooks around here AFAIK.

Haven't made it back east... I'm from central BC originally and am in Calgary now. I work in BC, AB, SK and MB when needed, so I've seen a bit of the flatlands.

I didn't realize there were so many Canucks on the board.

Actually I live in Chilliwack BC, I just put Vancouver because to the rest of the world if your from Canada, your either from Toronto (East) or Vancouver(West). I'd rather not spend my time trying to explain.

Anyhow, glad to be here, glad to have found the site.... Although the first time I heard of the FSM I thought it was a joke (along the lines of a minister a priest and a rabbi walk into a bar.....).

Your doing good stuff and keep up the good work

P.S. About the Pirate Ship, maybe theres a used float out there somewhere taking up storage space? Just an idea

Greetings fellow Pastafarian-Canadians!

Now I should mention that I don't really live in Toronto itself, but just east of it. (in the same city as whitesquire actually) I just say Toronto because most non-Canadians have no idea that there is more then one city up here. If anybody watches Jeopardy!, you'll see what I mean... Any time the question involves a Canadian city, they contestant almost always answers "What is.... uh.... Toronto?"

I would like to share with my fellow a webpage that is dear to my heart...

Enjoy!
