Modern Minds in Japan

A couple years ago, a guy from Japan emailed us asking about Moe's earlier work in Edmonton before TPOH. We referred him to Moe, and they started a very pleasant - if stilted with the language difference - conversation. It has culminated in great news for collectors and fans of the history of pop/punk: a collection of tracks from one of Moe's early bands, Modern Minds, is now for sale on CD in Japan and here!

Fireese on YouTube, Dad at CMW '07

Yes, it's been a while, but little Fireese Berg's profile continues to rise. In conjunction with mom Laura's "Smart Hands" work with baby sign language, two videos of Fireese signing can be found on YouTube, so check out the genius and cuteness. Also, they're going for a slot on, so head over here and (after a quick free sign-up) "greenlight" the video to be shown on current's tv show. At last report, in the last week, the video shot from #300 to #38!

Oh, and about Fireese's dad: Moe will be a busy hired gun for Canadian Music Week. He'll be slinging the axe alongside Shannon Lee Briggs at Lee's Palace Thursday at 10:30pm, and playing again with Galore Friday at 8:30pm at Hard Rock Live. Then on March 15th at Hugh's Room, he'll be part of "Boys Plays Girls", where male artists cover songs by females. Moe will be taking on the music work of one Hilary Duff.
