A new way for Canadian musicians to reach a wider audience
Hey everyone! I found out about this nifty new Music Biz made by Virtual Venues Network (VVN). It seems that now all corners of the globe can now enjoy live music concerts without the artists being there. How is this done you ask, well the live shows are recorded and they are streamed for live audiences in the far reaches of the world that normally would never have a chance to see artist on tour, can finally do so. Yet this does not only help fans, but it will help independent musicians reach wider audiences.

I need jason collett lyrics - please help!
all the flowers fade
and the stars pale
as this bitter beauty
grabs you by the tail

how long will you hesitate
half way up the stairs
?????? in the trees
some wounds never heal

and you're dreaming
with eyes wide open
your heart has spoken
for the first time

- - - -

The lyrics are in the insert for
Motor Hotel Love Songs - song: Bitter Beauty
thank you thank you thank you thank you

My dad bought me a bunch of stuff from Hot Topic while he was in the states, because being a father, he is musically ignorant. Since I am obviously not into the aforementioned bands, I'd like to make some money off of this.
I have an AFI messenger bag, and a taking back sunday shirt in a youth large. The shirt is white, with a microphone looped several times around the neck.
It has the tags on and everything, and is in the Hot Topic bag it came in.

The tag on the bag said $35 US, and the shirt was $17 US.

Give me a fair offer for both, I will not refuse anything reasonable.
I can meet you pretty much at any subway stop, or any viva stop on Yonge.

Thanks a lot..

Being There Magazine’s October Update Now Online
TORONTO, October 11, 2006 - With pumpkins popping up on porches and the leaves beginning to fall, new music has been arriving thick and fast at Being There HQ, great acts have been gearing up for tours around the country and summer blockbuster season has given way to Oscar hopefuls. We love this time of year. In fact, with all that’s been happening, our staff has almost more than it can handle at the moment. That’s why, in anticipation of the November issue, which is well underway, we’ve brought you an October update (www.beingtheremag.com) chock full of new, oven-fresh reviews and features.

New October content includes:

• A fine batch of live concert reviews, including the Dirty Dozen Brass Band Massive Attack, M. Ward, Silver Jews and Sufjan Stevens
• Brand spanking new album reviews, including the latest from Pernice Brothers, Susanna & the Magical Orchestra and TV on the Radio
• A big shot of cinema, including film reviews of The Black Dahlia and Stranger Than Fiction, as well as a heaping helping of movies from this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, including Paris Je T’aime, For Your Consideration, Lake of Fire, The Italian and Summercamp!
• A look at the season two DVD edition of a series we are loving at the moment, The Office (U.S. version)

Naturally, Zayne and Mike also return in October with the latest installment of “I Wanna See the Nashville Lights”, their twisted little slice of Southern Gothic looniness. Our rapidly growing editorial staff also provide readers with their personal cultural picks in our regular “9x5” column.

October will also see Being There wrap up its special Bicycles contest, with three lucky winners chosen to receive a CD copy of the group's highly anticipated debut album, The Good, the Bad and the Cuddly. Winners will be randomly selected from the Being There mailing list, so all those who sign up will be automatically entered.

Finally, be sure to bookmark our blog (www.beingtheremag.com/blog) or surf over to our MySpace page (http://profile.myspace.com/beingtheremag) to drop us a line and let us know what you think.

About Being There Magazine
Founded in 2004, Being There is an online music, film and culture magazine that rides the fringe between mainstream popular culture and alternative or unheralded work. Past issues have focused on both iconic artists such as U2 and Paul McCartney and relative unknowns such as Toronto singer-songwriter David Celia and Austin, Texas’ Bigamy Sisters. Being There strives to promote music and culture with depth, integrity and intelligence. Recent interviews include singer-songwriters Sufjan Stevens, Michael Penn, Robbie Fulks and Jolie Holland, comedians Patton Oswalt, Lewis Black and Greg Proops, and legendary figures such as Tommy Smothers, Colin Blunstone of The Zombies and Kinky Friedman.
