... and contrary to expectation, it's not all soft and singer-songerwritery. It actuallly rocks hard enough to drown out the incredibly loud neighbour children.

Jack-hammers digging up the next-door neighbours' sewer drain -- at 8:30 on Saturday morning of a holiday weekend. Great!

Avenged Sevenfold doing a bad rendition of their own song "Bat Country" at Rock AM Ring.....

They did a better job covering "Walk" at the same show.

(Trust Jenny to be a 'Mats fan! Sounds like a live boot even.)

Right now, I'm listening to Peter Elkas -- tonight's opening act:

His band, the wonderfully named Elkaholics, are pretty intrepid. They've been video-blogging their whirlwind cross-Canada tour:

Masonry saws and jackhammers ripping out the sidewalk in front of the neighbour's house. It's the City's 8 am wake-up call to me. It's so close and loud, my walls are vibrating. I hope to hell this doesn't go on all summer. It's a lovely day out there, but I can't even open the windows, between the noise and the concrete dust.

To try to cover the de-construction racket, I'm playing:

Dogs, Turn Against this Land

... really loud.

Not what I'd normally choose for a breakfast serenade. Bugger!

Day 3 of the neighbours' contractors power-washing their deck.

What ever happened to good old-fashioned silent swabbing?

Thunderstorm.

At least it's given the power-washers pause for thought.

And musically, James Yorkston's soothing sounds:

As I stand by the sink washing me dishes from last nights supper ,the window is open and in the distance from across the way I can here "Moonlight Serenade"....and it takes me back to a time and place I was before long ago beyond this present life....and memories stir like a warm summer's breeze.

Day 4 of the contractors power-washing the neighbours' deck. (15 years worth of stain built up, and they're trying to blast down to the bare wood!)

CBC radio chatter on top of the racket.

Gentle rain ... and silence from next door. (Don't know whether the rain scared off the contractors for good, or if they're just taking a lunch break.)

And musically, overtop of the ambient sounds coming in through my open windows, the gorgeous folk-rock sounds of the Lilac Time's debut eponymous album.
