It was 2004 and I was working in a cinema-turned-skateshop in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Shifts were long, and since I was restricted to a 6inchx6inch cube known as the “girl section,” my socializing was limited. Then came the arrival of Transworld’s skateboard video In Bloom. The VHS went in and stayed in for months. It became the soundtrack to our work – those endless days of merchandising, shoe-lacing and t-shirt folding had suddenly become pleasant and, dare i say, fun.
Each song was bigger, meaner and more beautiful than the last. I remember that twinkly time (before iTunes and Google) waiting for the credits to roll, pressing pause and scribbling down the names of all the songs and artists, then doing cold hard research. In many ways, In Bloom was my most important music lesson.
