Matthew Good Band, Moist, Our Lady Peace, The Hip, Due South on an old color TV, slightly run-down small towns that are still keeping on, Fieros and Berettas with faded paint, rented cottages on Lake Erie with sun-blistered paint and gravel driveways, keeping a spare pack of AAs in the kitchen drawer for when the walkman ran out of juice, President’s Choice cola, watching the rain run down the windows and the heat lightning of late-August summer storms. I don’t know why my brain decided to remember most of grades 3-5 in the past 4 hours, but I’m glad it did.
