We always have little tidbits of news and other miscellaneous OLP stuff that we don't seem to know what to do with because it's nothing all that important. So here's a thread for it.

I found Raine mentioned in an interview with George Stromboloupoulos (who went to Sudan with Raine)... this is just one tidbit:


Ophelia: Why did you switch from Much Music to CBC?

George: When I went to Much Music, it was to do a show called The New Music. Which I love. When they gave me the RapidFax which became MuchNews, it was a different thing. As time went on, entertainment television in general just became a lot more, you know... Britney Spears chewing gum for sale on Ebay kind of shit. And I just thought no, I don't love this stuff. As a matter of fact I don't like it. I don't want that kind of stuff. I want to talk about music and culture. I found that at Much Music there was less music, way less music. Which is okay, it's just for me and for the stage in my life, it's like I've been there for five years. I had a good run. I liked it and I thought I can't be on the air making fun of everything. CBC offered me a job, I said no, they offered me another one and I said no, a couple other places offered me and I just kind of looked around. Then CBC came back with this offer [The Hour] and I said no. Then they offered me the chance... they assured me that I could do essentially what I wanted to do. I had this producer and her and I got along really well and I just knew it was right. So I'm sitting on a plane going to Sudan with Raine [Maida from Our Lady Peace]. Raine and I were talking about Much. I was just like, dude I don't know what to do anymore. I had to do Fandamonium, which is fine but it's not me. A 32 year old man, at the time, watching 18 year old girls beat themselves up with battons and I thought okay, this is fine. There's nothing wrong with this show, but what am I fucking doing here? [Laughs] I wanted to do more of the election coverage and Much didn't really put me on the election coverage, they put me on Fanamonium. So I was talking to Raine about it and I thought what am I doing? He says, well, what do you want to do? Well I got this thing... so I fucking email my manager from the plane saying okay, we're quitting Much Music, we're going to CBC. Done! Then I went to Africa for two weeks. Disappeared totally. Then I came back and it was done. I realized I wanted more out of my day to day. I really loved my time at Much. Great people at Much. But the programing had gone in a direction, which is fine, that I wasn't necessarily interested in doing anymore. And that was it, very simple. At this time in the world, look at all the shit going on in the world. Being on The Hour is being able to talk about everything plus here's a great movie that I saw and here's a great band that I just heard, here's a cool show that I went to, hey guess what happened in Iraq. I can do all those things on the show. Why wouldn't I take that job?

Anyone else notice that Raine and Chantel wrote Kelly Clarkson's new song? I know its old news cause we've know about that since before her album came out but with the crazy amount of sucuess Kelly Clarkson has with every single, I'd say Raine and Chantel are going to get a fair share in royalties. And I think this is the only song they wrote that she released as a single.

Goodbye you liar,
Well you sipped from the cup but you don't own up to anything
Then you think you will inspire
Take apart your head
(and I wish I could inspire)
Take apart your demons, then you add it to the list.

Chantal co-wrote Gwen Stefani's "Rich Girl"... so she's raking in quite a bit from that, I'm sure. But yeah, when I heard "Walk Away" on the radio the first time a while ago I was like :GASP:... yay for them. :)

Good song. :nod:

'Innocent' is gonna be on some sort of box set that EMI is compiling called "Oh, What a Feeling 3", out on April 3rd.

according to Chart, that is.

...and this is me hanging on / i'd burn our initials in the sun if it would shine / anxiety chokes me like razor wire / if hate's in your heart man, you'll take what you're given / wake up / i'm not the only one / it's never goodbye / go ahead and play dead / if everyone's a casualty, then take your time, there ain't no trouble / these wounds they will not heal / ambition can be a tricky thing / what the hell do i know about rape anyway? / this is not what i hoped for / ain't it so weird how it makes you a weapon / who will be there to tell me how stupid i am? / those living for death will die by their own hand / and it's me that I am spying on / pick up the pieces and live with the stars / hurry up and wait / things have never been so swell / they're always the ones who slowly drift / be great / ...and this is my world.

Pedestrian's song Overwhelmed is credited in the movie Mozart and the Whale both the acoustic and electrical versions. Good movie. Thought it could be OLP related since Joel is touring with them.
