When Cy Curnin yelled out "This one's for all you tree huggers out there!", I knew it was going to be Driven Out. So I quickly grabbed my phone and videoed it.

You're welcome.

Had a great time at The Fixx last night with +Robert Schultz. The band opened strong with Red Skies at Night, the proceeded to hit nearly all of my highlights: Stand or Fall, Saved by Zero, One Thing Leads to Another, Deeper and Deeper, Are We Ourselves, Built for the Future, Driven Out, Beautiful Friction, What God? and Precious Stone.

Some surprises for me included a haunting rendition of The Fool, which included a good 8 to 10 minutes of synth and guitar moodiness in the bridge, and a hard driving rendition of Subterranean.

They closed out the night with the much cheered Secret Separation.

I would have loved to have heard Sunshine in the Shade and Outside, but I can't complain.

Getting ready for The Fixx. Up close and intimate.

Rounding out The Fixx's debut album Shuttered Room, The Fool captures feelings of loneliness and isolation very well; something my angst ridden 18 year old self could totally relate to.

This is the The Fixx concert I missed just after I moved to Vancouver on 1984...

One of my favorite Fixx songs is Driven Out. The live version from 1011 Woodland is arguably better, but I couldn't find a link.

We play this regularly when we jam.

Happy Canada Day!

Just got back from the Gorge Canada Day picnic. Had I nice walk in the blazing heat. Now enjoying an IPA from Persephone Brewing in the shade of the front porch.

Another great tune from Calm Animals, Precious Stone has such a great moody, melodic quality to it.

Hope to hear it tonight.

As we slowly make our way through the ridiculous traffic into the Steveston tunnel, I think of how much more civilized train travel is. One of the lesser know Fixx songs, Woman on a Train, from their 1984 Phantoms ranks as one of their most interesting tunes.

I love this album. Of the others you posted, this is the one I actually recognized. And, this song, positively haunting.

While browsing the gift shop on the ferry, I discovered the answer to one question posed by The Fixx...

Story
Tagline
"If you don't get at it, when you get to it, you won't get to it 'till you get at it again."
Introduction
I grew up in, and live in the west coast of Canada, on Vancouver Island. I have always had a great desire to create things, and a lifelong love of technology. 

I am not always an early adopter of technology, but have spent over 20 years designing, building, and supporting computer networks as my primary career.

I love music and taught myself synthesizer programming in the early 80's. I can chord my way through a song on keyboards, play bass reasonably well, and am working on my singing.

I have had a love of games since as far back as I can remember and was introduced to Dungeons and Dragons in 1979. I've enjoyed traditional roleplaying games ever since. My first published gaming books came out in 2011: Darwin's World for the Savage Worlds rules system (a conversion of the original d20 setting)
Bragging rights
Married twice, four kids, two cats. Built a recording studio in my garage (including the garage). Made LavaLand (see links). Won Geek & Sundry's Tabletop Wired Geekdad Video Contest (See links).
