Of course I named the show after the great album by the Smittens and I pay homage to the band by using a clip of their song 11:11 for my theme. I hope the band doesn't mind, but when I have talked to various members of the band after shows they seem like nice people whom I think would be good with it.

I also use this name for my DJ night happening occasionally at the Jane Bond in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.

Note that the links to shows older than 6 months might not be working, if you really want those shows please send me an email and I can get them to you. (Note that prior to 2018 I called my podcast FireballXL5, so don't be confused if you look at an old setlist)

Special thanks to Jeff Woods for finding my a place to host my mp3s!

August 14, 1998

I was alone this past week as Venus (Michelle) didn't have the energy to
make it to Space City (CKMS). As I was alone I made it random show,
just picking a CD from the top of each pile, mixed in with a set related
to the movie "Something about Mary" and a tribute to the Jane Bond's
"Fag Night" (which Michelle took her mother to by the way), I'll let you
figure out which set it was.

The Monica & Bill thing was a CD with the the presidential seal and
Monica & Bill written on it, the songs just has a man saying "monica"
and a women saying "bill", very strange.

My favourity surprise song was UltraBabyFat's Jonesin, quite good.

Also, does anybody know which city Messenjah is from?
