I am performing as The Canadian Romantic tonite, Sunday, Toronto, at Hour Of Power Easter Special - one night only at Unlovable (1415B Dundas St W) hosted by Nick Flanagan...
I think I may completely improvise it based on audience suggested topics....

I must amend previous post by adding, "...must...never...take...self... so damned seriously!"
Part of this is by doing tardy self- promo.
Here's something for tonight:


If you are in Toronto this Tuesday April 19th, I will be spinning as DJ Body Beautiful at The Beaver (1192 Queen west) for FEELINGS. No cover but the cover of nite. 9-1 with a Midnite Candlelight Recitation by The Canadian Romantic. I will be premiering the hot new Kanye West track entitled, "DJ Body Beautiful Is A Better Tastemaker Than Me, So It's Best If You Just Let Him Spin Music By Disfigured Gospel Singers, Don't Even Play My Song At All."

Congested and tired which means that I am on edge. Yesterday I went to the post office. I went in looking at the employee thinking, "You better not blah blah blah" or "If you do blah blah blah, I'll be so pissed!" And the guy was actually super sweet and helpful! I could have killed him. What are those kind of counter-active thoughts called? I hate having them.
Doing a blog sweep yesterday I went in being too hard on myself. Not too much was swept (elements of libel). I left some elements of morbid self-pity and bloated self-importance. Blogs really help to facilitate bloated self-importance. Look at me! Look at me! Hey everybody, look at me! I can wiggle my hips! Whoah! A tree just fell in the forest. Maybe the word 'blog' should only be used in the singular. Blog really help to facilitate self-importance. Thaaaat's better.
Ya know, I think I am fucking coo-coo. Reflection and sparked reminders. Mental elements that show that I am kinda, well, crazy. Sigh. Plum loco.
I'm seeing character traits in myself that I despise, that really need work. I am certainly better than I was, but my warped social instinct needs to get straightened. The fact that I can get so defensive. I am certainly less passive-aggressive than I used to be but I have been seeing taunting glimmers of it lately.
When I feel socially awkward I must gab less and listen more, unless I am cornered by someone dull then I should just jet!

I think that I may remove some of the more embarrassing, self-pitying, and frantic blog posts (even though my head is congested today). Will I be able to get to them all? And won't I want some sort of record which shows that, yes, I am half-crazy?

I forgot to plug this and it's happening tonite! Toozday nite!
BRAND NEW! Alternating every Tuesday nite at The Beaver (1192 Queen Street west)!
Issues and Feelings!

This Tuesday (April 5th) Robert Dayton, Junior Presents FEELINGS with D.J. Body Beautiful and a midnight candlelight night recitation by The Canadian Romantic
See The Canadian Romantic's videos here:

"I do this for you, there is nothing else like this, the mood of the room is shaped by what I provide, I am so honed like a beam of light that the Midnight Candlelight Recitation will be intensely fashioned and crafted going to` places unexpected. I will make love to you with my voice and soul and musical selections, I don't care who you are, NO COVER but the cover of night.Your life energies need us, this is a nice city but a tad stiff, it needs a massage, my hands can do that, lower, lower, lower, lower....
My Midnight Candlelight recitation is always a hit with the people! What are recitations? Intense spoken reflections of the soul in a romantic manner. We are here to help you get through this mortal life. Have a request? I will fulfill you in a voice that has been trained and honed from the deepest core of my being. Close your eyes? Is this a record? No, it's me talking to you right now, there'll be records after."
FEELINGS is a special night where we spin music that you probably won’t normally hear. A boutique mix of :
With a midnight candlelight night recitation by The Canadian Romantic

This will be ...special.

Then Tuesday April 12th Lorenz Peter Presents: Issues with DJ LP playing Space Disco, Canadian synthpop & new wave vinyl! etc... 10:00 till close.
Lorenz is a talented musician and artist in his own right with unique personal visions whether it's playing synths and FX in Corpusse, making his Vermillion Sands style alien landscape paintings, or his crazy ass comix!To Hurting People

Since we are struggling with pain, even at this moment, we have first hand knowledge of what it is like to experience the silence of God. Sometimes the immense loneliness of pain-whether physical, mental or emotional-is completely overwhelming!
As you listen to us spin, let the music wash over your brokenness as great healing waves of God’s merciful love until you hear the music once again.

From our hearts to yours,
D.J. Body Beautiful and DJ LP
