No, I get excited about wikipedia in general. that's because the concept is really cool, and to have it be a semi-reliable source is wonderful.

and uncyclopedia is funny, sometimes.

I LOVE THAT GAME AND WOULD BE SO DOWN WITH PLAYING IT WHILE I WORK.


So uh. I like the deafeningly loud music in TOE because I can't go see bands at home so by giving me the power to book them, I bring the music to me. Suffer!!!

emphasis on "deafeningly loud." I mean, the acoustics there are really not conducive for bands that like to play their music any louder than regular talking volume.

I agree, last weekend I was in there and a band was playing using electric guitars and amplifiers. In a normal venue, this would be fine, but in TOE the noise was to a point where conversation was impossible and it was just plain uncomfortable to be in TOE. Normally you can just ignore a band you dont like, but even standing in the doorway it was so loud we felt the need to leave to seek relief from the noise.

Paul Brubaker was last weekend. I'm pretty sure you're talking about two weekends ago, with Tonight, We Dance and A Love Like Pi.

That show was really loud, but we're definitely sound checking earlier when they come back on the 22nd for the TOE Halloween Fest to adjust the volume, but I didn't think it was that bad. It was nothing compared to the sound in a place like Hamilton Street or Bloomfield Ave cafés which are both about the same size. Suck it up !!! ;)

If it's too loud, you're too old!

Back when I was student.. *grin*

I used to go to TOE on the study nights (I don't know if they still do these) and game nights and it was quiet to have that conversation or just hang out. When I wanted to see something I expected it to be loud, it's just like any other small venue, you have trouble talking and it's loud. That's pretty much to be expected at a small concert.

I like the small venues since you can get really close to the performers and it seems like you can get a little more into the show.

It's really of what you're expecting when you go down there.. Don't go on a night there is performers expecting a quiet crowd and vice versa.

If I go there on a performer's night, I'm not expecting to be able to whisper, but I'm not really wanting to have to yell in someone's ear to communicate.

Mostly when I go on a performers night, I'm not really wanting to have to yell in someones ear to communicate after we leave the venue b/c it was so loud, the person has tinnitus.
