What an incredible experience for me to come home from Bosnia and to enjoy
a show of this caliber - I will never forget the time I spent with the
band and crew here tonight.
The sounds and lights were amazing and I especially enjoyed the focus on
Road Apples since this is my favorite album of all time but let's not
forget the new songs such as My Music At Work, Wild Mountain Honey, and the
wild light and sounds of Tiger the Lion.
For all you people out there who like rock and roll I highly suggest you
pick up any of The Hips CDs. I personally guarantee you won't be
disappointed. After seeing these guys perform tonight it's obvious they put
their heart and soul in every piece of music during this show. I could sit
here and write about The Hip all night long and tell everyone every detail
about my experience tonight but I think I got my point across it was a
My final bit of advice to all you rockers out there if you ever get the
chance to see the Hip live DON'T pass up the chance. I would like to thank
Ross Walton who organized this night for me and Gord Downie who I had the
pleasure of meeting and to the rest of the group - I thank all of you.

I would like to be a videographer because I am a great big Hip fan!!
I am currently a Flight Engineer serving to keep the peace in Bosnia.
I would like to be in my home town to video the Hip. I will be home for ninteen days and I think that it would be a blast to do this on my vacation.
I am not technically inept so you would not have to waste much time showing me what to do. I have a outgoing personality and I enjoy having fun and really dig the Hip!!
