Gojira headlined a date in Calgary before they opened for Metallica and that show was one of the best performances I've ever seen. Their live show is one that will make you contemplate quitting your job for.
There is a line in the song Silvera that I first heard on XM radio "when you change yourself, you change the world". It really made me think on a bigger scale, and I think now more than ever we do need to think on a very big scale.
When I heard of the terrorist attack just an hour north of us it made me instantly worried for the family that used to live across the street from us, who came to Canada from Africa. Great people, well spoken and kids that were welcome friends with our girls. Now to have to hope nothing happens to them due to backlash from a totally unrelated event just because of skin colour....it's fucking sickening.
Don't let fear breed hate.
Sorry for the rant. (I finished the other speaker!) #vinyl#Gojira#magma#yyc#yeg#altec14#whatssofunnyaboutpeaceloveandunderstanding
If you're in Asbury Park today, stop by the 3rd Ave boardwalk and say hello to artist @michelamartello. Leave a message of peace + love on her newest mural and help her complete this fantastic tribute to positivity. It's been great to see people from all over the 🌍 leave their messages of love and unity at this crazy, mixed up time in humanity. @woodenwallsproject #asburypark#muralart#publicart#peaceandlove#whatssofunnyaboutpeaceloveandunderstanding
"But we can perhaps remember - even if only for a time - that those who live with us are our brothers, that they share with us the same short movement of life, that they seek - as we do - nothing but the chance to live out their lives in purpose and happiness, winning what satisfaction and fulfillment they can.
Surely this bond of common faith, this bond of common goal, can begin to teach us something. Surely we can learn, at last, to look at those around us as fellow men and surely we can begin to work a little harder to bind up the wounds among us and to become in our hearts brothers and countrymen once again."
