Several months ago, Jimmy Jettz had a dream. In this dream he saw two great foods come together, the pizza and the poutine.
This Wednesday, instead of practising our old material, developing new pieces or working on choreography, the members of Astronaut Love Triangle gathered to create and eat the world's first poutizza.
As expected, it was another artistic triumph for Jimmy. More nourishing than his love ballad, Caroline, more energy-packed than his Large American Car.
Although we all agreed that next time, he should try it with a thin crust.

The Elgin Street Diner provides crayons that you can use to draw on your placemat while you wait for your chili dog to arrive.
The staff are nice about not suggesting you might be too old for crayons.
If you do a good picture, I hope you'll be careful and not spill any of your chili dog or poutine gravy on it.

From Art and Popular Culture:
"Prisencolinensinainciusol" is a song composed by Adriano Celentano, and performed by Celentano and Raffaella Carrà. It was first released as a single on November 3, 1972, later also on his album Nostalrock. The lyrics are pure gibberish, in an interview Celentano explains that the song is about "incommunicability" because in modern times people are not able to communicate to each other anymore adding that "prisencolinensinainciusol" is supposed to stand for "universal love".

This is the piece that our audiences seem to like the most. Perhaps it is a sign that spoken word is in vogue.
Performed at Raw Sugar at the opening for Milan Ilnyckyj's photo opening.

Reactions from the Blogosphere to our appearance at Milan's Opening
My thanks again to the ever-talented Andrea Simms-Karp as well as the highly comic and deservedly infamous Astronaut Love Triangle (with introductory note above). Their repertoire included songs about cyberstalking, the side effects of the modern pharmacological rainbow, and the tenacity of the large American automobile, in the face of environmental concerns.
Astronaut Love Triangle was just as hilarious and entertaining this time as they were last time. Well, almost. (You know me, I don’t like to knit-pick, and what they did do was absolutely five star, first-rate entertainment. But it would have been ever so slightly better if only they’d included that Gilligan’s Island number I like so much.)
Astronaut Love Triangle was every bit as awesome as they promised to be. Manny Blue signed my chest after the show!! I want a matching pair. Aggie? You there? Get out the sharpie...
ALT's songs are feasts for the imagination. At times abstract and experimental-artsy, but not the least bit pretentious, and always down-to-earth.
First, I have to say that I was BLOWN AWAY last night by ALT. They were already my favourite band, but now... I think they're gods.
Last night d.jack and I took in the Astronaut Love Triangle at Milan's art opening. There was beer and flirting. There were pretty pictures and BLEEDING GUMS.
Which you will only understand if you were there to appreciate the genius that is ALT.

In addition to our paradigm-shifting and assumption-shattering performance, there will also be live music from Andrea Simms-Karp.

Here is the one photo of our performance in Little Lepreau on August 21 that Michel Theriault managed to catch before his camera batteries died. You can tell by the sign that Manny is holding and the puppet that I am holding that we were about to launch Cyber Stalking Blues.
If you are wondering how our performance went over, let's just say that we had a standing ovation after every piece.

Once again Astronaut Love Triangle demonstrates that there is no predicting the taste of our audience. Who would have guessed that a spoken word presentation of medical side effects backed up by a toy piano would be the big favourite?
Here is an excerpt from Zoom's review of our most recent performance:
... this witty and charming quartet is incredibly cute, fiendishly clever and thoroughly entertaining. My favourite pieces were Side Effects, Ponzi, and Cyberstalking Blues. But I loved every single thing they did. My only criticism is that I didn’t want it to end and it ended.

LucyandBart is a collaboration between Lucy McRae and Bart Hess described as an instinctual stalking of fashion, architecture, performance and the body. They share a fascination with genetic manipulation and beauty expression. Unconsciously their work touches upon these themes, however it is not their intention to communicate this. They work in a primitive and limitless way creating future human shapes, blindly discovering low – tech prosthetic ways for human enhancement.
