Hi gang!

Well, our dnb/breaks night on the 24th was a HUGE fucking success! :D Two rooms of love and both stayed packed (dnb moreso) all night...it filled up right in the middle of my set (I opened at 10pm) and didn't calm down.

Had a few technical difficulties as the mixer was soooooooooo much more complicated than what I'm used to; it was like looking at a space shuttle control panel...all knobs and doohickeys! And the cross fader was set up weird so the tunes kept losing volume in the mix...bah! Oh, and I couldn't see the pitch sliders at all cos it was so dark and I wasn't used to the decks...it was doing my head in! All's well that ends well, though...really happy with my set even though I stuffed up a couple of drops! By all accounts, though, I smashed it...had loads of randoms come up afterwards to give me props, what a buzz!

One sad thing was that I couldn't record it as the sound guys needed the extra output to go to an extra amp they'd brought in to boost the sound with a couple of extra subs and the amp didn't take RCA in so I couldn't piggyback through that. *But* I'm going to try and get the time to record it at home this weekend, so I'll let y'all have the link when it's done :^:

Here's a few pics...note the concentration, I was quietly SHITTING myself up there! :wink:

    So this is my younger cousin's teacher's explanation of the Battle of Vimy Ridge (of World War One): "We went up the ridge and took it."

    That is all that was covered.

    WHAT the FUCK!

    What grade level/breadth of the course?

    Social Studies 11. That's a history course. When I took it, we spent at least two weeks on WWI alone...

    Vimy Ridge is a defining moment in Canadian military history. It was the Ocean's 11 of the First World War.

    Eh, I wouldn't be too surprised then. High School social studies is generally a mile wide and an inch deep. It's not like he was in just the 20th century specifically or anything.

    The course actually only covers the 20th century just past the end of the Cold War. Socials 9 and 10 cover colonisation and confederation and all that, and History 12 covers the 20th century from a global perspective. :|

    As an American, Canadian history bores me so far except for Terry Fox and Nunavut.

    I have a new soccer blog The Minnow Tank. Reading it psychically kicks Sepp Blatter in the bean bag.

    If I remember correctly, my grade 10 History course devoted a week to Vimy Ridge and the after effects of it. It's really strange to hear that it was barely mentioned elsewhere. I mean, what other major Canadian battle are they going to cover?

    Let's just say that it came out the other end in pretty much the same form as it went in.

    BC education system is a little different from Ontario so the courses differ a bit when it comes to order.

    You've got Vimy Ridge, Third Battle of Ypres, Operation Overlord, invasion of Italy (I don't remember what it was called). I don't really remember too much about the older stuff, but there are quite a few.

    In WW 1 & 2?

    In WW 1: Vimy Ridge, and a number of battles on the western front (following Somme, German troops were terrified to face Canadian "Shock Troopers"), St. Lucia.

    In WW 2: some involvement in the battle of Britain and the battle of the Atlantic, Dieppe, the Juno Beach part of the Normandy invasion, Scheldt, the battles along the Rhine, the invasion of Sicilly.

    There's some other stuff I'm forgetting

    If I may add, the soldiers at Juno Beach suffered a casualty rate around 50%, that's the second highest rate under Omaha, during the assault, and had gotten further than any of the other divisions that landed.

    The only thing that interests me about Canadian military history is that my Polish grandfather was able to leave Europe after World War 1 because he defected from the Polish military and joined a Canadian mercenary unit. He and his wife got brought over the puddle in the aftermath, and that was that.

    Also, apparently, all of his three brothers were Jewish horse thieves who were later caught and hung for being horse thieves-- that's the explanation given me for why my family turned away from its Judaic roots for the most part. They died-- as three horse thieves. ?_?

    It was 50% in the first hour, actually. Juno was the second most fortified invasion site, Omaha being the first.

    Messina was the US landing point. I think he's thinking of the British troops. They landed at Syracuse, where there was no real opposition.

    Edit: The Winter Line campaign in Italy was one of the major ones I knew I was forgetting.

    Wearing a Canadian flag on your backpack will get you some nice treatment in some places. Apparently Americans will occasionally wear a Canadian flag so they don't get accosted.
