VANCOUVER — The Sunnyvale Trailer Park, home of the infamous Trailer Park Boys, has been subjected to some bizarre weather lately according to Bubbles. “It’s kind of a weird one. It’s pissing rain right now. It’s raining horse cocks. It’s supposed to start hailing,” reports the bespectacled feline enthusiast.

Trying to keep dry, Bubbles, Julian and Ricky shared their anticipation for their set at the Pemberton Music Festival. “We’re gonna come up there and hopefully meet some really good farmers, get some really fine things to smoke, and just go up and wing it,” says Ricky.

Bubbles is excited about the massive festival line-up, particularly the prospect of catching Randy Newman. Ricky meanwhile gushed about the prospect of getting hammered and checking out some of the stand-up comedians on the line-up, name-dropping Bob Saget, which triggered a hilarious exchange between Bubbles and Julian. “Bob Saget? Julian’s wanted to meet him for years. He’s attracted to him,” Bubbles teases. Julian’s counter was met by Bubbles’ retort, “Then why do you have pictures of him all over your bedroom wall?”

Homoerotic affection for the former Full House star notwithstanding, the boys have been keeping busy on various projects. Ricky’s licensed dope business is steady but he admits that it’s tough to stay legit. Julian is still looking for that next business venture that will allow him to retire while Bubbles has been working on some new music.

Bubbles elaborates: “I wrote a song called ‘Who Shit In My Saddlebag?’ It’s about a cowboy out in the range and his buddies are doing a prank on him somebody poops in his saddlebag. He finds it and he gets very annoyed and he pulls his gun out and he shoots eight people.”

The country/western ditty should fit in nicely with the Boys’ foul-mouthed performance. Ricky sums up the Boys’ approach to the Pemberton experience, “We’re not really planning on remembering any of it and hopefully everyone else is going to be the same.” Should be a facking greasy good time.

Catch Trailer Park Boys at the Pemberton Music Festival on July 20th.
