December 7th, 2001While I'm excercising my temporary dominion over the front page of this site, I thought I might share an amusing LWW-website-related phenomenon with you. As some of you may know, whenever anyone accesses a webpage, their request for that page is logged by the server, along with some other info that can be of use to webchumps such as myself. One of these pieces of information is the referring page. This can be useful in checking how effectively the site is promoted with search engines, seeing who's linking to the site, etc...
Anyhoo, as an expression of my own personal arrogance, I titled the pictures page "hot, sexy pics" (I'm sure someone out there finds these buffoons attractive, so that's not entirely off base) and everytime I go into the logs I notice several poor saps that stopped by after a search for "hot sexy pics" or the like on various search engines. (This site actually places pretty high in a Google search for "hot, sexy pics"... We're right up on the first page of results. Imagine the disappointment of the wayward horny surfer...)
Here's a sampling (from November's logs) of some of the more interesting searches that got folks to this site...

October 14th, 2001In other news, I've been repeatedly informed by various people involved that the boys will be appearing on The Chatroom on TalkTV this Thursday around 5:30 pmET Apparently you rabid fans can ask the band questions via the host in the online chat during their interview, or by phone (toll free, you cheapskates): 1-877-674-CHAT. Everyone is invited to log on at www.talktv.ca -- click "Chat".
October 14th, 2001Well we've just finished up two big and successful cd release shows for Rebuild the Wall. The entire 26 song cd came out on Universal Canada on September 25th and is in stores all over hells half acre. (Online you foreign brethren can find all of our cd's at maplemusic.com) The first ripper of a show was at the Horseshoe in Toronto and the other was in our hometown of Kingston at the Ironhorse Saloon. Yee-haw! Both joints were rockin' to the double-duty, 6 piece 'Wrongs-o-rama. Banjo dynamo Chris Quinn joined us for both nights and garnered much applause for his outstanding pickin'. We covet the day when Chris can join the full-time ranks of the Wrongs. We shot a music video for Brick in the Wall pt. 2 last week... it should be airing on CMT by the end of the month if all goes well. Fiddle player Julie Penner, who played on Rebuild the Wall joined us in the video where we are depicted as a bunch of Harley driving hombres cruising the country roads looking to subvert the dominant paradigm by way of musical performance. Rest assured, it'll look better than that less than spectacular vernacular portends. We'll soon be hitting the highway on our Charlottetown P.E.I. to Tofino B.C. tour. The talented Jim Bryson is joining the tour to open up the show. On our way home we'll be dipping into the states to play a few shows in Minnisota and points east, hopefully including a couple of dates with our home girl Sarah Harmer in Chicago and Detroit rock city. That's it for now, so keep warm by dancing with your sweetie in the kitchen and we'll see you soon!
September 26th, 2001Lordy, lordy... A new CD and a new goddam diary all in the same week!!! Will wonders never cease? This time it's the summer tour of eastern Canada. All this and more in the diaries section. Read 'em and weep! On a side note, I thought some of you wastrels may find this amusing...
September 13th, 2001Dude! New pictures of the band!!!
August 17th, 2001Well, I'm somewhat of a lazy man... Shameful really. However, I have finally added some content to the site after a somewhat lengthy content-drought. Hell, I've been off in scenic Victoria, eatin' sushi and surfin', dudes... Who's got time for some dang country band website Luther sent me a tour diary from the Spring tour of Western Canada. Chock full of edge-of-yer-seat excitement, I assure you... Here it is. In other hot prog-country news, the full release of the wall is due out on September 25th on Universal records (Proud manufacturers of Canada's prefab pop sensation Sugar Jones)
January 16th, 2001here have been a few dissenters in the crowd over the last year but this young fella takes the cake. He placed this gingerly on the stage at a show a while back and it always brings a tear to my eye when I read it. Well...not really, but it is a stated goal of the performing artist to get a reaction!:
First off this coming from a die-hard "Floyd" fan... You have (un)successfully killed the interest in the slew of cover-bands by "country-izing" such classic tunes! If you ever get signed, which I think Niegh 'know', will never happen I hope you fall flat and broke" and become a K-Mart Re-issue.
-In further...you royally suck...and I wish you hatred, depravity and bad wishes!!
