6/6/6 - June 6, 2006.

That's the release date of Boards for Canada's next album, Trans Canada Highway. Not unusual for them. The album Geogaddi's total listening time is 66:06. 666 and has 23 tracks. In interviews, Mike and Marcus revealed that the album had included many so-called 'easter eggs', and that some of the music had been developed using number theory and equations such as the Fibonacci Ratio. This led to some of the band's fans setting up entire websites devoted to decryption of the 'back-masking' and other hidden details on the record. Ultimately, BOC's true intentions were written there clearly all along; in typical sardonic style they had even included a track on the album entitled The Devil is in the Details, as a kind of knowing wink to the astute listener.

With some groups I may only like some of their music. But with BOC, I like ALL of their music and the more I listen the more I like it. If you're partial to head-banging music, step aside. This music has a signature "ethereal melody mixed with that ka-thunk-a-thunk sound of buckets (drums), smoke 'em if you got 'em" sound that's quite appealing and notoriously enjoyed by me on road trips.

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
