The only explanation I have is that I have been dealt the same set of facial features as dozens of other males. The thing I wonder is how many of the people I do run into during the course of a day might actually think I am someone else? Or strangers that see me that think we already met and I am ignoring them? Weird. It is also strange that this happens to me, considering I know about six or so people that share my name as well and result in confusing phone calls and e-mails from people I don't know.
They are all pretty much the same story, but living in a bunker on a major power grid, I didn't realize it was that bad outside until just recently.
It is moments like this that I wish I had the "halo flu" or was obsessed with GTA.
If you have any stories about heroes, now would be the time to share them.

"It's not easy being sleazy / I get so wheezy / When those evil urges seize me..." Led by former Thrush Hermit/ Dears guitarist Rob Benvie and Thrush Hermit bassist Ian McGettigan, this woozy amalgam of rock, hip-hop and the kitchen sink is dying to be adopted as the official anthem of the stubbornly dissolute. (From The Summer of 2004, www.camouflagenights.com)

Whatever happened to the East Coast of Canada? Years after the hype has died down the current generation of Maritime rock bands is a little older, a little wiser and ready to reignite the regions once vaunted lo-fi torch. Leading the charge is the Halifax band, the Burdocks. Retaining the wry pop ideals of their forbearers, these do-it-yourself stalwarts quickly established themselves as fan favourites across the country through their loud, raucous, chaotic shows and various recorded gems, released on Out of Touch Records. Through three releases (Lips and Assholes E.P, I Have a Million Friends L.P, Airplane Tracks E.P), the band has developed their distinctive ‘scrap rock’ sound, wherein different song fragments and styles are expertly sewn together to create a unique sound that is at once choppy and abrasive yet somehow cohesive and poppy. Co-songwriters Christian Simmons and Seth Smith craft the band’s dynamic, intricate rock songs, melding classic pop structures with progressive sophistication and indie-rock sincerity to produce songs that buck the current trend of inflexible genre adherence while still maintaining a distinct, instantly recognizable character. The band is just about to enter the House of Miracles to record their second full length, which should be out in the new year. [theburdocks.com]

Just spoted a job listing for an Audio Visual Systems Technician, if that is your sort of thing.
Since it is a big election day south of the border, I thought I would try and skew the results by showing what kind of influence this site has over international politics: Vote today!
