inspired by nothinganything, i popped in an old video tape that someone had sent me forever ago of a ton of Sloan videos, interviews, live performances, etc., all from about shortly after the release of OCTA up until immediately after the release of Navy Blues.

it's SO weird to see Sloan commercials.

and to see Sloan not only perform on awards shows, but to also WIN the awards for Artist of the Year and such things.

it's so amazing to me to see a band that is virtually unknown here in the states have such a GIGANTIC following up in Canada, including people SLEEPING OUTSIDE OF RECORD STORES for days to be one of the first 100 people to get Navy Blues upon release, and to get a ticket to a more personal concert. o_O

okay, i shouldn't talk TOO much, i mean, i DID use visiting my friend nicole as an excuse to go see them live in washington d.c., and DID take a weekend vacation to L.A. just for a CHANCE to see them live (wasn't guaranteed since we didn't have tickets, and it WAS sold out, but luckily, everyone was there (including Ben Stiller) to see the opening act, Phantom Planet, so the place virtually cleared out between sets and we got to go in anyway...)

but i think that's where i draw the line, maybe.

what have YOU done for your favoritest band?
