enough of this lovey dovey bullshit. let's rock.

It's all about the bass, now.
I've got to get my Reeves on today. I've got the Australian wine and the coffee cup. I just need the groove.
Vibemechants are scheduled to record today and I still suck, in fact I seem to be getting WORSE if that's possible. It's because they took away my pick, I just know it. If you'll notice the new pics on the sidebar, you'll see Reeves playing with his fingers. They're there for a reason. Inspire me, thumper.

I think this spring is going to be all about the bass for Keanu as well. As far as I know, he's not due to start filming anything new for a bit so hopefully there will be some more becky dates in the next couple months, *cough*cometoVegas*cough*. And I plan on making a few of them, just to watch him play and check out his gear. I never bothered to really look closely before. In the past, I watched his hands move but I just followed their motion without really registering where they were landing. Of course, his face. It's really hard NOT to focus on the expressions he makes.

But next time, I'm not so much going to watch HIM play bass as I'm going to watch him PLAY BASS.

I've had this in my files since 2001, I'm unsure of the source

This picture is from one of Dogstar's summer shows in 2001, probably Summerfest. Below is a live track from that show.

I miss the way you smell
I miss the time we had
I pushed it to the end
I threw myself down again

I miss the light I miss the day
I'm on the ground I'm blown away
In a world that's gone I need another day
Blown away

I miss the way you stayed
I will return there someday
I pushed it to the end
I threw myself down again

I miss the light I miss the day
I'm on the ground I'm blown away
In a world that's gone I need another day
Blown away

Dogstar- Blown Away, live at Summerfest 2001

Now, I've got to get MY bass in gear and go rock out.

Have a great day!

dogstar rocks , it wahs | from inside the mind of krix at February 15, 2004 08:58 AM .

Hey Krix, Thank you for the dogstar track. I didn't have this one.
Nice pic! You're right, pretty hard not to pay attention! You have a great day too and good luck with your bass.

Cool, a live version. Have fun at practice. If you don't have fun and love it, then it's not worth doing.
I love the faces he makes too. :)

Posted by: Allison on February 15, 2004 04:44 PM

Wine, coffee cup, muse who uses his fingers :) ... you sound very focused and ready for rockin'. You go girl! 2003 was the year of the Matrix ... is 2004 the year of the bass?

If becky is booking dates, they NEED to tour a little so we can all see them live *cough*cometoCanada*cough*.

Posted by: sta-cie on February 15, 2004 05:57 PM

It's all about tongue-hand coordination...

Oh, and that works for playing bass too!

Posted by: Mikey2 on February 15, 2004 09:43 PM

...2004 the year of the bass-ist!

Posted by: shelz on February 16, 2004 02:40 AM

(Où peut-on trouver cette chanson? krix pourrait l'ajouter à sa collection k-mix.)

sta-cie! You're canadian too? Wow, there's a whole pack of us. *giggle* Where from?

Posted by: Zen on February 16, 2004 06:05 AM

hello zen!

Actually you can download a sample on her official site: www.maritbergman.net
I'm sorry I don't have it complete but I'll see what I can do...
At least I can give you the lyrics:

Keanu Eyes

Someday soon
I'll think his childish laughter's
I'll resent the way he talks 'bout
Booze, drugs and cartoons
I will think he's shallow
Someday soon
I'll rant about his lack of taste
And soon
He can look for my love somewhere
far beyond the moon
and I will have forgotten his embrace
But for now, all that I
Can think of is his keanu eyes
Oh I'm not ready I keep slipping
All the time
I'm longing for the day when he
won't occupy my mind
I guess I'll just have to wait
Another while

Someday soon
I won't remember rainy
Warm soft skin and kissing
under blankets
I assume
That any day now, he will be

But it's hard oh so hard
Lonely Sundays, crisps and
Coke and chocolate bars and
I wish I could stop wondering
Where he went
And what he's doing now and
And what we were and what it
Right now I just wish that he
was still around

Lots of kisses from Paris cause even french girls are keanaddicted!

It's all about tongue-hand coordination...
Mikey2, I'm ROFLMAO!

Zen, I live in Alberta, close to Edmonton, eh? [had to throw that in] How about you?

Sandra, this song sounds like Missy Marit had a [very] close encounter of the Keanu kind! Is this true?

Posted by: sta-cie on February 16, 2004 08:55 AM

I'm in New Brunswick sta-cie. Planning a trip to Alberta this summer actually. My little brother lives in Calgary, eh?

Posted by: Zen on February 16, 2004 09:10 AM

Now becky MUST come to Alberta this summer! Somewhere in between ... like Red Deer [yeah right]. :D

Posted by: sta-cie on February 16, 2004 09:26 AM

-I'm sorry Krix, I'm still in Valentine-mode :-)
Did you manage to record the song? And will it be released? Because I have to prepare my 'groupie-outfit' *with* "vibe-merchants rawk" t-shirt then ;-)

Oh, & OMG, the Canadians are taking over, LOL! Drat, I *must* start studying French like I want to soon now, otherwise I'll never be able to read what you are all going on about! ;-)

Posted by: Julie! on February 16, 2004 09:51 AM

Hi ya'll

I thought maybe you'd like to know that that song Keanu Eyes is to be found over at Kazaa!

Posted by: saskia on February 16, 2004 11:54 AM

Julie! all you need to do to talk Canadian is to add an "eh" after every sentence! :D I'd actually like to learn French too! I took a couple French classes in school, but I don't really know much. I CAN remember an entire filmstrip from Grade 5 [can't write it though]. Something about Mother being in the kitchen ... pouring milk into bowls ... Paul's bowl is light blue ... yadda yadda yadda. That Paul was a little prankster, he put salt into Alice's bowl of cereal!

Posted by: sta-cie on February 16, 2004 12:30 PM

Well I'm not Canadian but my mother is. Does that count?..hehehehe...she was born in Quebec. They moved to the States when she was 10 but she still speaks fluent French. Never did teach the language to her kid's though :(. Anyway's just had to share in all the Canadian love going on in her.

Posted by: Toriane on February 16, 2004 12:45 PM

Going on in her?.....forgot that last crucial e. Here....ooopppsss

Posted by: Toriane on February 16, 2004 12:48 PM

Toriane, that SO counts! How you doin', eh?

Posted by: Zen on February 16, 2004 12:54 PM

My sister in law is Canadian. Does that count?

Six degrees from Canada?

Posted by: Tyler on February 16, 2004 01:10 PM

Practice last night went well, we worked on 2 tracks but didn't finish either of them. I was only tempted to resort to my pick once.

I get to leave the office early today because of the holiday, so I'm off to practice some more, eh?

By the way, I don't have any Canadian in me, but if Keanu or Kiefer want to change that....

Posted by: krix on February 16, 2004 02:05 PM

Yes, I'd like to be Canadian that way, too ;-)

Zen! You never told me that all I needed to do was add an 'eh'?
So I've been practisement to make mon French language prononciontement plus belle pour ne pas nothing eh? ;-D

Posted by: Julie! on February 16, 2004 02:17 PM

Gidday Mate's, Im from OZ. The only way I can get any Canadian in me is..... and the only canadian I want is KEANU!!! So I'll have to add eh to the end of every letter,eh!!

Posted by: rhyanhan on February 16, 2004 02:44 PM

LOL@krix!! good thing I wasn't drinking a cola just then...bwah!

Posted by: bakednudel on February 16, 2004 04:36 PM

Im from Minnesota- Is that close enough??
We just add You Betcha to the end of everything!!
So feeling Minnesota-wishing I had a little(big!) Canadian in me!!You Betcha!!

Posted by: krissy on February 16, 2004 05:35 PM

Zen. Moi? Well I'm doing pretty good, eh! But man I'd been doin even better if like Krix I had some Canadian in me, eh. :) I think then I could claim to be a Canadian, eh? My life will have all come full circle then. Being in a Canadian then having a Canadian in me.

Posted by: Toriane on February 16, 2004 06:42 PM

krix, you SO make me laugh out loud! smooches, chick, and keep on rockin'...

Posted by: lori on February 16, 2004 06:45 PM

I live next to Canada...does this make me Canadian eh? I've worked in many Canadian cities...does this make me Canadian eh? I used to live in MN so I can answer my own question "you betcha!" Je suis Canadienne!!!

Posted by: shelz on February 16, 2004 09:34 PM

You guys are hilarious!

Julie!, I didn't tell you about the eh? because it's not that prevalent in French Canada and I kind of didn't think about it. Sorry!
But speaking English with a French-Canadian accent will also do. It has to be a French-Canadian accent though, not a French accent, which will just make you sound sophisticated-European. It's all about putting the accent on the last syllable of every word and pronouncing "th" like "d".

For how to, see Keanu in Youngblood
For how NOT to, see Roseanna Arquette in The Whole Nine Yards

Posted by: Zen on February 17, 2004 09:26 AM

holy mother of veinage

Posted by: laura on February 17, 2004 09:59 AM

Oh, dank you!!!
-And also for giving everyone an excuse to intensively 'study' Youngblood again now ;-)

Wee-hee, I'll practice from now on! :-)
HoweVER, I dink I'd like to sound like a sophisdicaTED EuropeAN as well, dough, so I'll keep on tryelleMENT dat too, eh?
