Rock & Rule (Part 2)
Emru Townsend · June 27, 2005 | Gord Hill: How many liters of beer were consumed in the production of Rock & Rule?
Emru Townsend: You mean no one kept track?
John Halfpenny: Well, there was a restaurant that stayed in business as long as we were there [laughter]
Dave Cox: Used stale food, too.
John Halfpenny: That's right. "I'll just scrape this off the plate."
Gord Hill: But it did germinate in the terminal warehouse. And shortly after, the whole studio moved from this isolated place on the lake—you had to go out the back door in the winter, you'd brave this wind to get to the main street—
Gord Hill: There were no restaurants except one place called the Skipper, and it had this game, Condor, which people would feed quarters into. That was the state of the technology for gaming at that time.
Anne Marie Bardwell: There was a hot dog stand and a basketball court. That was it on the waterfront there.
Gord Hill: Yeah. There was Harbourfront, but it had [just] a hot dog stand. There was no place to eat, really.
Norm Stangel: Yeah, but we moved to another place that was isolated and cold. [laughter]
Larry Jacobs: We learned our lesson! [laughter]
