NXNE is one of the most amazing, albeit most exhaustive, music festivals I have ever attended. With venues spanning the entirety of Toronto’s downtown core area, attempting to see every amazing show is about as futile as Men Without Hats trying to look like they still know how to rock. Of course, like Men Without Hats, it’s still pretty fun to try anyway.ADD-style attention spans and s

NXNE is recognized as one of the biggest multi-day, multi-venue, multi-BBQ festivals in Canada. Which makes it doubly awesome that Planet S received press passes for the Toronto festival this year! Aside from hitting up every free beer ‘n’ BBQ that we can, it’s also probably important to note there are plenty of local acts playing the festival this year alongside all the headline

A little anger over this on our Regina Prairie Dog Blog so I thought we should share!Dear Canada Post,I’d like to start by stating I have always been with labour. I don’t side with the bosses, but this case requires unique consideration. BOTH ARE EQUALLY F%$KED. In this instance both sides are in the wrong and simply exposing how archaic the postal service truly is. The mail gets to ou

So, StarPhoenix columnist Bronwyn Eyre says there isn't enough evidence for global warming, huh? Well, I haven't seen evidence for Bronwyn Eyre. I don't believe "she" exists. I think Eyre is just a bunch of algorithms generating specious, factually bankrupt articles hiding behind a stock photo mugshot.Hey, if I write an article expressing my opinion that E

It’s so beautiful outside! It really has a summer weekend vibe, so I think we oughta go to Winston’s and put this week to rest.

Come party with us. I promise it will look j

Based after the UK’s Mercury Award, The Polaris Music Prize is the country’s best music journalists, bloggers, and broadcasters, all choosing the best Canadian album of the year.  This album can be any genre, but it has to be based on quality, not sales, like many of the pointless Juno Awards.  The jurors submit a list of their top 5 albums of the year, with which the Polaris

The editorial staff of Planet S Magazine apologizes for the rogue lunatic who endorsed the Bostons Bruins earlier today--he's been sacked, and even those who were responsible for sacking him have been sacked, just to ensure that the sacking has been done correctly.Other than that, all we can say is: GOOOOOOOOOOOO CANUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (in five games!)

After much consideration, the Editorial Staff* of Saskatoon’s Planet S Magazine has decided to place its support firmly with the Boston Bruins.  The Stanley Cup finals start tonight, thus the timely announcement out of Saskatoon this morning. Two long nights of discussions with some kind of board was suggested.  Unfortunately, everyone is really busy at this time of the year s

Not sure if you give a skydiving shit but it sounds like an announcement on Canada's next NHL team is imminent. From today's Winnipeg Free Press:The Forks has been told to be ready to hold a party for the announcement that Winnipeg is back in the NHL — on Tuesday at the earliest — and staff there are in full planning mode. Paul Jordan, chief operating officer at The Forks,

Ah, the weekend is once again upon us and, in accordance with Saskatoon's now-mandatory abundance of events, there is absolutely no shortage of shows to indulge in.Although I would like to add that our now-ancient Editor has yet to respond to any of my 9 AM emails... perhaps the weekend started last night at his birthday at Amigos?FRIDAY, MAY 27THTimber Timbre at AmigosCam Penner at Lydia&rsqu

I'm getting a bit old for this stuff, but once in a while ya just gotta suck it up and get out to Amigos.Last night was a good night to drag my tired old bones out at 11 o'clock.  The Creepshow played and it was really, really worth staying up late on a school night.  What a great band.  Exceptional players and lots of fun songs about zombies and vampires.  Sarah Sin ev

Our super-wonderful editor turns adult today.  I feel kinda crappy because we got him an ice-cream cake and a shitty card while his amazowife addressed his pending mid-life crisis by bringing home a vintage motorcycle.  Congrats on your birthday Editor Boy and keep that Honda of the busy streets.  I don't trust those damn things, likely because I'm so much older that I feel

Two rival Edmonton alternative weeklies, See and Vue, are merging. This is a big deal. FromThe Edmonton Journal:The unpleasantness had begun in the mid-1990s. At that time, the father of the Edmonton alternative weekly, Ron Garth, owned the notquite-successful See. Then, all of a sudden, he didn’t own it. Stung by the deception, he opened a nearidentical competitor called Vue.

Against Me's "Total Clarity" is among the new music that hits stores today.  The disc includes Money Changes Everything, as in Cyndi Lauper.  Lada Gaga's album finally launches after weeks of billions of dollars of pre-promotion.  So don't worry about telling your children, they already know.  In case you're a big fan of the dead guy that was creeping

Great.  6:00 and nothing happened.  Fantastic, you disturbed old fart.  Guess what!  I’m sending you a $16 000 credit card bill from last night and 7 grown adults that I legally adopted this morning.  Deal with it you lying piece of dung.

Since the world begins to come to an end tomorrow, I determined that my last supper oughta be delicious and indulgent.  Thus - The Park Burger at Park Cafe.  It was beautiful.  I recommend you treat yourself in as many ways as you can before 6 pm tomorrow cuz then she's all over. If I don't get to speak to you again, it's been a slice.

And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. Revelation 9:5End of Times kicks off tomorrow at 6pm local time.Are you prepared?  My suggestion – get your freak on until about 5p.m. tomorrow, leaving you one hour to apologize to God, thereby punching

From America's Finest News Source:Planned Parenthood announced Tuesday the grand opening of its long-planned $8 billion Abortionplex, a sprawling abortion facility that will allow the organization to terminate unborn lives with an efficiency never before thought possible. During a press conference, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards told reporters that the new state-of-the-

Yes...all caps because I am screaming with glee.  Glee as in happiness, not the atrocious TV show (Barf).  The Sheepdogs are into the last round of voting to be featured on Rolling Stone Magazine's cover and voting has commenced.  The challenger is a young singer/songwriter from LA who sounds pretty good despite the icky countryish and commercial undertones of her material.So -

Lots to discover on the list of new music releases this week. Here's the list and while the first Ben Harper single (Rock and Roll is Free) is a gem, here's my pick of the pack.   Chad VanGaalen has a contest for this video on his website for the month of May -check it out at http://diaper-island.com.  Enjoy.

From CBC:Last year, the Phoenix Coyotes were about two days from moving to Winnipeg. Now, according to several sources, Commissioner Gary Bettman has - for the first time - given True North permission to close a deal with Atlanta Spirit, the owners of the Thrashers. As I wrote last week, I hate the way people in Winnipeg, Atlanta and Phoenix are getting tortured by the relocation rollerc

Earlier this month Canada, with a lot of help from Saskatchewan, elected a Conservative government. While some Conservative voters probably made their choice based on the (contrary-to-all-the-evidence) belief that Stephen Harper's party are prudent fiscal conservatives (BWAH HA HA HA HA HA), others no doubt cast their ballots intending to punish the left and other supporters of civil liberties

Having just returned from Montreal, I am vertiginous with glee that Saskatoon’s music scene is the likely the strongest it has ever been. Seriously, I can’t remember a time when there were so many amazing shows to attend.And if you aren’t planning on attending at least a few of these then you easily run the risk of being branded a lame wad, a Debbie downer or a bran muffin in a b

That's right--according to the Globe and Mail, hundreds of people (mainly in Ontario and B.C.) have been directed to incorrect polling station adresses by a bogus "Elections Canada" phone message that advises the original polling station has been overwhelmed by voter turnout.The conspiracy theorist in me (he lives in a deep dark corner, but he's all too often fed by real-world oc
