 Anyway I must admit I have been shirking an appearance at Mitz`s as my mind gets tired and then distracted for reasons I cannot get into at this time. So in dedication to the reality that anyone can be a star, and also because it makes me laugh. I discovered a lost tape of Peter Nyuli and me in a song in which I've titled "Open Mike Alright!!!! See Peter is one of the guys that loves to drink and sing. In the old days I remember watching with both shock and delight as it was last call by then and Karaoke was both a new and exciting medium. His voice sends chills and to some is a sobering experience, but through years of practice it was a hard cut to my project. I feel like Mr. Nyuli is a poet in ways. I mean I consider myself a songwriter but this song wrenches at the gut. Forgive the under production (even by Amanda Saint standards!!!!) it was one take!!!!  I like the use of my name in the song it's just you know well it doesnie fit the mood of the project at hand. I myself however consider taste a personal thing, so I will leave you the link and ask you judge for yourself!!!!

Wow!!!! Moka Reminds Me Of Sammy!!!!
Also I liked the band before Moka was in I think Nelly Furtado was in the video. You know it is 33 °C in YYZ, why the winter jacket? I was also suprised that FEIST is listed her location as YYZ. I never knew you played guitar and wrote your own music. I do to but I cannie dance like you FIEST I shake my hips too much. I look like a stripper when I dance it`s scary for me trust me!!!! Oh, one more thing since Radio 3 is pulling out the "Big Guns" in Canadian entertainment when are you featuring Nelly Furtado? You see when I mention I`m a musician people mention Nelly Furtatdo I cannie figure out why but she like FIEST can do top 10 in U.S.A. Hell why not include Avril Lavigne!!!!

Cheers,

Tonite`s episode:

"Location Shoot Parkdale Extra's and Real Junkies Ta Boot!!!!"  

Overview:

http://www.songcastmusic.com/profiles/amandajanestafford

http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=829181831

I arrived a little late and landed 11th on the play list which trust me is a slow form of torture for reasons that I may or not specify later on is this episode.  On the bright side it was a beautiful night perfect temperature and outside were movie vans, cops with an easy gig, and a location shoot I believe.  I love watching American movies shot in Canada atleast there were no American flags in the backdrop. Actually they must have stopped shooting as a few members of the film crew stopped by "do yew have debit?" One asked. I love them they are so cool!!!! You think?  You see they are all so obviously phoney, outside there was actually a good-looking guy that was nice ta me me. Anyway a good example of fake sincerity I had the pleasure ta watch was the hug. The good-looking guy was greeted by annoying women (reminded me of preppy girls in high school!!!!) they spewed such lines as, "Oh, it's so good to see you!" And ofcourse "Oh where have you been?" (Kiss Kiss Hug!!!!)  I cannot stomach it, as in my mind they are losers. All I could do is smile at the guy and laugh!!!!  Anyway previous to this I should mention there are a few characters that hang outside and ask passers by for money. Te me as a personnel observation, they have drug problems, judged from the look of their clothes, under nourished appearance, and location ofcourse, I deduce it to be crack!!!!  Last time one guy who was not there this time, called me Canadian, I said was Scottish, and asked where they were from, Danny, who gave me his name this week, admitted he was Italian. Me I blame the mothers they should not spoil them and teach them to be more self sufficient like us Scots!!!!!  Anyway when Danny asked me for money this week I explained I was Scottish so I am cheap and suggested the police officers across the street as they make a good wage!!!! I also suggested Mississauga, and Yorkville places he might have better success at making money!!!! Danny did not follow my suggestion but I was touched when he gave me his "Now" magazine as he does love music and guitar like I!!!!

Songs:

 

Baby Really Love It When Your DOA:

Tonight I premiered my Fender Telecaster made in Mexico guitar. I decided to play the songs the fans like so I figured I would change it up for myself!!!!! Interesting note Chris Staig the host has the same guitar freaky isn't it?  I inquired about flange no can do maybe in the future when I get someone to give me a lift I will bring my Fender Cyber Champ amplifier. You see the itunes version of my songs uses this effect and I want to simulate for the crowd as you can build on notes and the action on my guitar is so smooth!!!!

Should Have Seen Her Saturday:

I introduced the song as usual and interacted with the table in front ta the left of me. I love electric guitar; I must admit the reason I have never been in a band is that most men that play rock only see ye as a lead singer. They do not understand Celt rhythms are different, most men in rock can't sing as good as I, yet their arrogance astounds me. You see I have played guitar for over 20years now, my speciality is power chords, I can blow people away yet I have ta put up with their egos and prejudice!!!!  Chris Staig is different and so is his sound guy they have watched me for years now and respect my talent!!!!    

After Show:

Got a big hug from Chris Staig, as Chris my ex was telling me how much he loved his song writing ability I found it funny!!!! I must admit I only care about critics that are musical like I!!!! Tonight I changed it up when Chris my ex offered his stage notes I advised him it better be nice!!!! You do not know I get restless and have a temper if you what I mean!!!! Anyway the good-looking guy from outside I was previously taking te said something I didnie hear, as I was getting in the cab, I shouted that I was proud Celt breeding perfection, and I don't want ta dye my hair blonde!!!!

"I Thought You Were Normal When I Saw You Outside, But On Stage, The Way You Play Guitar, The Way The Light Shines Off Of You !!!!"  

Overview:

http://www.songcastmusic.com/profiles/amandajanestafford

http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=829181831

What can I say I landed 11th on the play list yet again. I have a new approach though I mean I will tell you the truth. I have become like Jack Breakfast the former host.  I like outside especially now since it is spring and comfortable to hang out there. I also decided to drink just a little and joke with the panhandlers on the street. You see this time we sat at the back of the bar so I could see my ex on the street. So I would sing and dance outside in front of him. There was even this young preppy guy with a motorcycle who had a little girl by his wayside so I made hand gestures through the window to my ex on how he would get some action tonight if you know what I mean!!!!    Now I should also mention the new hostess of the review was there tonight, her name is Jessica Stuart, I welcome you to my blog and my eternal commitment to Celt Pride, she doesnie play bagpipes either. Anyway outside I met a Glam Rock style boy asking my opinion on band names I will keep my suggestion a secret because again in all honesty, I go out to forget about everything, have a good time, and play my music!!!! Unless it strikes a chord I forget. He did mention 1 thing that sparked an interest about a man that committed suicide who worked in a convenience store he frequented. During his set he even mentioned his grief my view I believe offended him so I will tell you what I said in response.  I talked about this woman that co-owned a convenience store where my parents lived. She went missing and they found her body out of town she had killed herself due to gambling debts. I express my view on it and I guess to him it seemed callus it's just life is precious and I know I never knew my father because he had a gambling addiction. Drugs are evil yet we rarely publicize what extreme debt and catching the rush of the grand pay-off will do to the psyche.  Anyway on with the show and a warning to anyone who has the guts to talk to me, remember even if I do not share your view I really do believe in the right to disagree!!!! 

Songs:

 

Gotta Get Down:

Me, Chris Staig, and Jessica Stuart were on stage, Staigy was kind enough to tune my Fender and I played bad piano and mentioned something about this is what Scottish music is to me.  Now I know I must have been a little drunk because my 1st song I actually blanked out on the words. What is funnier is I asked my ex Chris Tremblay the only co-written song on Pagan World what the words were, and he gave me the 3rd verse. So I told him it was wrong, it's ok though because he remembered, and it was smooth sailing for this song alteast.    

Killer Instinct:

The mike stand annoyed me I must admit, as I had to adjust it to my satisfaction. I did manage to get into a groove and didn't care I mumbled a line and hit one wrong note as I can adjust my voice to follow it!!!!   

After Show:

Got a hug from a couple of people that I can handle as fans. One a cute skater girl with her 6foot seven boyfriend, Glam Rock boy came over and we compared hand size!!!! The Glam Rock boy had delicate hands I noticed!!!!  Outside I met a new fan that asked where I played I also mentioned Cadillac Lounge, and Graffits in Kensington Market. His line was priceless though so I will finish my blog with it, "I Thought You Were Normal When I Saw You Outside, But On Stage, The Way You Play Guitar, The Way The Light Shines Off Of You !!!!"

"Jessica Stuart Didnie Appear!!!! Staigy Back For More!!!!

Overview:

http://www.songcastmusic.com/profiles/amandajanestafford

http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=829181831

http://www.amandasaint.com/amandasaintpictures2.htm

Special Note: I have updated my facebook name to read Amanda Jane Stafford. As I have more than one name it is fun ta keep you all guessing!!!!

I have also added a new page to www.amandasaint.com/, as Songcastmusic my Distributer will in addition to iTunes have me on Amazonmp3  soon!!!!

 Anyway tonite I moved up 2 spots on the playlist I landed 9th as opposed to 11th, and to my surprise Staigy came into to sub for Jessica Stuart. What I find amusing is there is no real detail as to why she didnie show. I do look forward to Chris Staig hosting again in the summer and maybe next time I'll see Stuart who knows, which brings me to "The Way To Mitzi`s Story", now 9months ago I use to frequent an Internet Café I must admit after Humber/Saint Joseph's twice, inside I thought fuck it. I'm sane and this is what happens to me when I kick out my ex I might as well be eccentric as life has a way of fucking good people up the ass anyway!!!!  Now at this particular café was this large balding white guy with his little Chinese boyfriend. Yet again I must admit (as I have in previous blogs) that I decided to quit smoking pot as I had adopted a new kick "sleep deprivation"!!!! Some writers believe the state between conscience and unconsciousness is the most productive in the creative process. You can imagine what I thought of those 2 in this state, as one even fancied himself a cop and played cards with the boy tending the till. You see I attract for the most part weirdo's and figured them perverts and child molesters instinctively. So it was kind of freaky for me as the cab I got into had the fat bald white guy driving it. He kicked me out of the cab after he saw my ex Chris then he got out and started threatening me and calling me crazy as I got in the cab behind him. I told the new cabbie it had nothing to do with being in the cab it was due to a previous incident. As you have figured by now I made it to Mitzi`s regardless and met a boy named Joey a fellow musician. What I found interesting was the fact he was young, and like I had fallen on hard times, as I find people who have artistic tendencies tend to be treated badly by mainstream society. To me it is because they are closed-minded and lack vision yet if an artist becomes famous ironically people swoon over them. That is why when my ex and I saw a Conan O'Brien taping in Toronto, with Jim Carey as a guest, we kept away when we saw people swarm his vehicle.  Do ye think if he wasnie famous they would care? Anyway on with the show!!!!

Songs:

 

Here I'm Walking:

What can I say, Staigy tuned my guitar, I played bad piano again, which is good as we had a visitor, former host and ragtime piano specialist "Jack Breakfast" I don't remember how I did but I'd never done it live on the Fender and drunk boys were in the audience with cameras!!!!   

Sunshine:

I queried the boys on how many drinks they had? One boy responded 17, I advised him to shoot for 20. Again I don't remember how I did but a happy drunk audience is a good audience!!!!    

After Show:

I saw "Jack Breakfast" outside he is working on new material, I think he should do a "variety show" He enjoyed Staigy as a host as I do, but I mss his intros. I also went back ta the table of college boys to check up on there drinking status. They hadnie reached 20 beers yet, but one had a pair of gloves that I think people use to cheer with at sporting events. Anyway I tried them on and demonstrated some boxing moves.  I also met Joey outside again who had talked to my ex in the washroom. He told me I should pose naked with my guitar and he was not into the "$California look", which is good cause I like food, do not like to tan, do not want plastic surgery, do not like my hair bleached blonde, and ofcourse I am "Black Irish form Glasgow"!!!!  He also mentioned he liked MILF`s I responded I like them too there is one at work in particular. Anyway I would have stayed ta smoke a joint but my job gets in the way!!!! Cheers All!!!!

Special Note: Bonus Track for Pagan World sent to iTunes due in about 6weeks. Will update all in future blog when "Live Status" Also new Homepage picture created for your viewing pleasure. It is a tribute to a blog on CBC Radio 3 http://radio3.cbc.ca/blogs/2008/05/Live-on-CBC-Radio-3-Fashion-Fight-Club-Are-You-a-Brand-Slave you see logos for prestige suck but if the graphics are cool I cannie resist!!!! It always amuses me when I read articles that have a "Social Conscience"

After a brief telephone conversation with my ex, he came to a conclusion that he didnie want ta come due te the fact that we couldnie agree on him no interrupting me and keeping quiet in the bar. I felt quiet peaceful actually as I landed fourth on the playlist and even new knowledge of P.A. system for my Fender guitar, and no practice didnie deter me from the task at hand. " Jessica Stuart" showed up and I was amused by her querying, if I had referenced her in a blog? I smiled and responded, "That I didn't want to play in YWG to promote myself so I have to use the Internet, and I consider myself a writer. I guess I'm a weirdo in that way I only want to play in places I would visit based on my career in travel. In fact I am going to have a future blog listing of places I would not visit, it is a long list so it might even pan out to a book you never know!!!! Anyway Stuart reassured me "it was all about my vibe" so I can tell you improvisation is good~~~!!!! 

Songs:

Knocking Knock Knocking On Your Front Door!!!!

Ta me the moment I heard my guitar I knew it was one for the fans. Ye see I figure purists like when you're a bit off your game. I was feeling the vibe though again I always encourage "McAuslan" beer and explain the medicinal need for "Guinness"!!!! Not ta mention you know something about the cops trust me the audience relates!!!!

Should Have Seen Her Saturday!!!!

You all know the intro by now!!!! Interesting fact: I am actually writing this on a Saturday~~~)))...   I couldn't believe myself I fucked up a verse in every way, but I can fit in substitute words in no problem, the way I look at it is "it isnie a crime if you can rythme!!!!"  

After Show:

I commented to the table behind me as I smiled and said, "Atleast I'm a good singer" Outside a little boy told me that he liked Guinness. Inside a new shot special "Jameson Whiskey" I finished my "Guinness" and "Jameson" and left!!!!

A couple of months ago when I caught a cab home after Mitz`s open stage review, this cabbie who was listening to classical music on his radio, stopped in the middle of a side street to ask if I could see something on his window!!!! I couldnie care less and said no!!!! He told me later in response to me no trusting him that, he thought musicians were humble and asked if I was drunk? I dedicate this blog to his ignorance as he has no idea how egocentric and conceited the average musician is. You see some may view Scots as arrogant, but we are down to earth, and believe it or not I have be burned at gigs, for doing such things as on a double booking letting people go ahead of me out of manners, and in return playing to the barflies. I have only made out of all my hard work, a few Guinness's at a Scottish pub "Mackenzie's" Last year on Saint Patrick's Day when I had the audience cheering with glee, I waited 8hours to play again, and the host screwed me over for "Cripple Creek Fairy dude. In my opinion I was more talented than the host as I have a personality, I am real, and chose to do my own material!!!! So you know when people complain about not hosting the "Open Mike" and act selfish on stage to me it's a joke!!!! I do it because I always get a compliment and the kids love me, for I realize without promotion being underground and all, ask any marketing genius and they will admit, "Shit Sells if it's promoted in a palatable way"!!!!

Songs:

Sunshine Fender Telecaster P.A. System Mix:

I usually ask someone to tune my guitar, as I know some are picky about tuning. To me though it is a P.A. system, and don't care if my guitar is perfectly tuned. Especially since the act before me on stage said, "Since they are not hosting it is not there job to assist!!!!" It's okay though as I have learned through experience, the guitar looks good on me, and the audience gets a taste of the "Saint" as her "stage banter" is legendary!!!!

Baby Really Love It When Your DOA:

I improvised a little and had fun with it regardless. I love this song myself to perform because if you are singer, this song leaves a lot of opportunity in which to play with interpretation and phrasing!!!!

After Show:

The current hostess commented, "We should perform Heart together", my ex commented "My guitar was a little out of tune", and the cute little freak girl outside commented, "She liked my music", what more can I say!!!!

“I cannie Mitzi`s, the Fender needs a tuning !!!!”

Heather European Reservations agent no more, so at present my focus is my side business music. Which includes cover for new bonus track "Hey Hey Feeling Fine". This image is the reason for the delay, but I like to play around with cameras and filters, as to me it is a part of the creative process. I have learned a little bit about people that do art, to kiss and make up you have to sparkle in their hearts!!!! I also promise in the future, a lost interview in which I have the best Canadian accent ever. I must admit I hate it, as I sound like a stoner in ways, the trick is lower your voice!!!! Which brings me to the night at hand and the challenges a distracted mind can present. For example, earlier I thought fuck it to having the Fender in tune, and so did some of the other musicians. Now there is a small room in back with a piano in which some musicians rehearse. I tried with my ex, and then before I was to play, I thought I would try again. The problem is you can't hear as others are playing, and there was this girl who knew my Fender was out of tune and offered to help. Ofcourse she had an ego, when I joked pretentious people care about perfect tuning. I also asked her how long she had played guitar, no answer.

Songs:

Here I'm Walking:

I must confess when I heard my Fender through the P.A. it didnie sound right. So I stalled a wee bit, but the problem was it took away from me tuning guitar so I left it to the expert the hostess. She left it a wee bit out of tune, but I liked the sound, it suited the Fender!!!!

Poor Poor Johnny:

Due to the tech delay I was running over, so as not to ruin my fellow musicians time in the sun, she suggested I do a short song!!!!My problem was I had actually practiced the above song, so being a problem solver and all, I speed up the tempo just a tad!!!!

After Show:

Now this time my ex Chris actually liked the performance, Tristan the waiter said Ministry should back me. I figure myself that would be cool!!!! I like the Album with "Just One Fix" on it as I liked the heavier sound.  I also asked the girl I met in the backroom, when she was playing, and if she got the joke!!!! You see the way I see it, the host or hostess should assist, as that is part of the reason for the paycheck, right Chris?

What can I say about tonight except that being a woman that plays guitar in the genre of Alternative Rock, the reason I am a solo project is because of chauvinism of males in the industry. Tonight I will give you a few prime examples, and why, I will believe of not, back the hostess Ida Nilsen. I should mention every night since it is an "Open Stage Review" you have to sign a list. Trust me it is a lot worse in NYC there you have to show up at 12N to play at 11pm.  Ok so I go up to sign the list and there is a group of men there, you see they have a CD release Sept 11th and fancy themselves stars even though they have never been to Mitzi`s, so ofcourse they figure me just a chick to hit on.  Anyway the fact that one guy asked me why don't I sign up last made me laugh, I told them I could not wait to see them play, and I have music now on iTunes, Rhapsody, Napster, and ofcourse Amazon mp3 (USA Only), I also told them I have videos out on CBC Radio 3.  I also looked at Yawd and put hands up in the air and smiled!!!! The other example I warn a parental advisory on as this person insulted my intelligence:

Toronto Ontario Canada

Open Stage Review Appearance!!!!

Aug 20, 2008 - 13:57 - I think you need professional help - music doesn'y pay you because you should pay us to listen to it. You might find better luck in the digital underground where all the freaks come out. Good luck with whatever it is you are hoping for. Your music sucks so get off the stage.

Aug 21, 2008 - 1:44 - Yeah, why don`t you give me your email address cause I have been playing guitar for over 20years now, I know I am one of the best female rythme guitarists around. I do not think you have seen me play. I think you are jealous, I can also sing blues that would blow you away. You chicken shit goof, I put money on the fact you do not play music. You do have right to your opinion but write me and prove you have talent before you desecrate my web page!!!!

Aug 21, 2008 - 1:56 - p.s. I have a website where I show off my good bone structure and art. Why don`t you give me a fucking picture, because I assume you are gay, fat and ugly and have shit taste in music!!!!

Aug 21, 2008 - 2:30 - p.p.s. goof, good news my genre is alternative so I guess songcast got it write. Are you a sexually repressed bible thumper? Then I recommend Perry Como!!!!

Advice if you are a talented little girl, that wants to play freaky guitar. Remember you have to be better than most men, not care if you offend, and  take sexual harassment as that is part of the Rock Star image!!!!

Should Have Seen Her Saturday:       

Tonight  we had a comedian in the audience, his name is Rene and he performs at The Laugh Resort, he asked, " Have You Seen Rod Stewart Play?" I responded, "I haven't but my mummy use to be a Glasgow barmaid and saw him when he played sax and he was shy back then!!!! The good news he liked the music, apart from that, well let's put it this way, he is not my type, and you should not take a sip of my ex boyfriend's beer, enough said!!!!

Baby Really Love It When Your DOA

I talked about the new video on CBC Radio 3; I explained it was a tribute to Cawthra Park S.S. and the nouveau artsie crowd I use to go to school with.

After Show:

Rene got ejected from the pub, and I saw Erika Werry (tambourine), Ida Nilsen (piano), and Chris Staig (guitar) do a rendition of Joan Jet's "Bad Reputation"

Another month means new host and sound guy so it's the luck of the draw, I showed at 9:30pm and landed last. On the up side he started at 9:45pm. His name is "Southside Jimmy Byron" originally from Chicago now resident of T.O. as he fell in love with a Canadian girl, that's sweet isn't it? Anyway I hate waiting all night, as I do not know how to occupy my brain. Outside there is this man that in my opinion scares people, as he is a resident of the universe and also tends to drool when he talks. This was also the night to avoid conversation with me, as I know I had a wicked look in my eyes. It was interesting a few girls showed up I have never seen before, one had just been on a reality T.V. show, and the other played piano. I saw them outside they are so cool they blow my mind!!!! You see I am not a "Pop Tart" a term I heard in high school, these girls could be however. What makes me laugh is one sung and played piano well, however honestly I'm just as good so why the attitude? In fact it cracks me up, as I would never compete with them, as not just their music, but their clothes and style are so different than mine. I also ventured down the street to "Wag My Dog" as former hostess Jessica Stuart is working there now, and I had time on my hands. Small world the girl that wanted to tune my guitar, and never I got to see, was playing there. I still do not know how long she has been playing guitar, but I must admit she did an original song. Again different style, but more hip than the girls I met outside. I must admit I'm unique, as I am a power chord specialist who likes to play catchy hooks and prefers rhythm to lead guitar as the point of focus.

Songs:

Hey Hey Feeling Fine:

Jimmy got it right, it never occurred to me, but the sound guy tunes the guitar. You see the way I see it, cause music genre varies, and his from mine, as I watched him play, that his style is Latin and melodic. When I play at home, I love flange and a heavy electric feel this song however is a ballad so I wanted it to sound pure.  Jimmy tells good jokes and in the background I faked hanging myself with a patch chord. I told the crowd I had to play it, as it is my new single out on iTunes!!!!

Should Have Seen Her Saturday:

I introduced the song and advised the audience that my songs had a theme of promiscuity tonight. One guy in the audience said he would drink more then, come on what more can I say!!!! 

After Show:

Outside a couple of little girls smiled at me, one even sung part of my song. To critics the only reason I put up with bullshit, cause if your half decent people will always ride you. That is why I care about the audience not the other musicians, as everyone is looking for that lucky break, and sometimes it makes people ugly!!!!

Substitute Blog AMANDA SAINT I may be broke but atleast I`m not a JUNKIE!!!! 

I may smoke a little weed and enjoy drinks with friends from time to time, however I hate people that are weak willed and cave into peer pressure, and do hard drugs!!!! My theory on Kurt Cobain is he blew out his brains because heroin kills not just the pain, but ability to perform and write music. As far as that English Jazz chick I forget her name, well if she does crack well she`s a goner. You see 4 out of 5 people the first time they try crack become addicted and in the end it is more expensive than cocaine. Not to mention a side effect to crack addiction is your body gets uncontrollable tremors so you look like a freak, and you lose your looks, hair and teeth. Finally I hate crank as they cannot handle people who watch television even when the volume is turned down if they have run out, and addiction level is just as bad as crack addiction, not to mention I play music so they would hate that aswell!!!!  Cheers for now!!!!  


Ashame you had torture me and pretend ok

Arts school wanted 18yrs, result, stalling to sabotage status, bad pictures ugh looks, media ban so, ignorance ok, husband in car, sexual promiscuity, humiliation of race allowed in Canada. Have to keep mouth shut, and eat it. Every day a victory for abusive fags, no money for business, dead positive associations global trapped. Dyke fantasy as men closet gay abuse for sport. Stalker payoff ugh population placed always.
