After an absolutely ridiculous wait due to massive amounts of maids on his farfinschnuken (and generally not caring so much), The Governor has finally decided to release the annual double-episode of The Governor’s Ball! This time featuring interviews with Bob from Immolation and John from Raven, plus The Governor's Top 30 tracks from last year.

Plus all hail the return of The Governor’s good friend Sly with “Some Sly Advice”.

I've released a brand new video interview for A Journal of Musical Things with extreme metal superstar Nergal of Poland's Behemoth. We had a chance to speak before their recent headlining set in Toronto about Nergal's increased mainstream attention in his home country, his return to music after battling leukemia, and how his band is now one of the most recognizable extreme acts in the world. Watch it now in the Interviews section.

Here are two recent live reviews of Twelve Foot Ninja and Cerebral Ballzy from their Canadian Music Week performances at Toronto's Lee's Palace.

My latest video for A Journal of Musical Things is an emotional interview with the enigmatic and charismatic party-pusher Andrew W.K. after a crazy solo performance at Toronto's Hard Luck Bar. You can check it out in the Interviews section.
