Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there, myself included. Have a great day!!
OK, I guess I’ve left you all hanging long enough from my preview and part one of the show. Let’s get on with the my review of the Roger Waters show from his May 31st performance in Winnipeg.
“Hey you, don’t help them to bury the light, don’t give in without a fight!”
The second act opened as the first act had ended, with the assembled audience staring up at a blank brick wall. The acoustic guitar work from Hey You playing over the P.A. system. This song echoes the depths of Pink’s despair. He feels utterly alone and isolated behind his wall. He calls out in a vain attempt for someone to hear his cries for help.

The full-scale of Roger’s vision becomes clear during this act, also the completed wall acting as a monumental video screen to project the full-sized decent into madness that Pink endures.

Happy Father’s Day Everyone.
First things first, let me add my voice to the growing throng who are pissed off as all hell at what happened in Vancouver this week. To my mind it was a perfect storm of emotion and alcohol fuelled mayhem that only needed a spark to explode. I believe that at the heart of the Vancouver riot there was a core element that was not there to celebrate game 7.
Who in their right mind shows up to a street party with a baseball bat or Molotov cocktail? This was not a riot based on the win or the loss of a hockey game in my opinion. This was a deliberate act by a core group of hateful people who were determined to twist the drunken emotion of a hopeful crowd into a violent orgy of hate. Mission accomplished. I hope you were stupid enough to get your picture taken by one of the hundreds of cameras present at the event.

May you feel the hot breath of your new butch cellmate on the nape of your neck as he introduces you to life in jail! Bitch.
