Music Monday – “Karma police/I’ve given all I can/It’s not enough/I’ve given all I can/But we’re still on the payroll”

“Karma Police” – Radiohead

Music Monday – “You know how we like to write nothing but hockey songs? Well, here’s another hockey song!”

If you’re still missing Gord Downie’s voice, his new solo record – a collection of 23 “Love Letters” to various people and places in his life, is pretty amazing and getting great reviews. A member of Facebook’s largest Tragically Hip Fan Group has also uploaded an hour and twelve minute montage of some of Gord’s […]

Music Monday – “Well I kept right on driving/Until I hit the ocean/Found a small cantina down on Monterrey Way/I met up with a girl down there but she did not speak the English/I probably coulda had her too, but all I knew how to say was/Una mas cerveza por favor senorita”

Watching lots of videos of our resort and someone used this song as the background for one of their videos… “Una Mas Cerveza” – Tommy Alverson

Music Monday – “Yeah, the lord is my refuge and fortress/My God with whom I trust/But I’ll never know why the wicked/Gets to prey on the best of us”

Hard to believe it’s only been a week since the worst mass shooting in modern US history. So many stories, speculations and even songs coming out over the past week. Here’s a new one from Eric Church, the Friday night headliner at the Harvest 91 Festival who had actually jumped into the crowd during his set […]

Music Monday – “Me and monkey/Like Butch and the Sundance Kid Trying to understand/Why he did what he did/Why he did what he did”

The worst mass shooting in recent US history (so far) happened yesterday and I don’t even know what to say anymore. Should I talk about gun control?  Mental health & personality disorders?  Gun control? Media narratives? Gun control? Deja vu? Gun control? Disinformation? Gun control? Or should I just throw up my hands at the futility of trying to say […]

Music Monday – “I been crying out, “How bad can a good time be?”/Shooting off my mouth, that’s another great thing about me/I have everything but I feel like nothing at all/There’s no risky thing for a man who’s determined to fall”

I’m never sure from day to day if I’m a fan of U2 or not. But I do know I’ve always been a sucker for a creative music video… “You’re The Best Thing About Me” – U2

Music Monday – “Put out my lawn chair/Watching the sun arising/Evening comes/I’m watching the sun go down” #saskatchewan #sask #camping #provincialparks #summer #echovalley #fortquappelle

I’ve finally had time to go through all the pictures (2000+!) that I took over the course of the entire summer and winnow them down to a handful of favourites. That’s still more than most people should have to sit through at a single sitting so what I did was create a long slideshow with […]

Music Monday – “I spent my days working, spent my nights drinking, howling at the moon/Screaming for the days when you were coming back, no couldn’t come too soon/Couldn’t come too soon”

Another thing that made our summer so amazing was the non-stop music… …that we played from morning to night (okay, Shea’s not as big of a music fan as I am and occasionally asked for some peace and quiet to read her book!) Above is a graph of how many individual songs I played each […]

Music Monday – “All summer long we’ve both been free/Won’t be long til summer time is through/Summer time is through”

One of the most poignant episodes of The Simpsons is “Season of 4 ft 2” which tells the story of the Simpsons family taking a summer vacation to the lake. Lisa, who’s usually an outcast nerd, ends up befriending a group of cool kids while Bart, who normally has a large circle of friends, is […]

Music Monday – “Radicals and Racists/Don’t point your finger at me/I’m a small town white boy/Just tryin’ to make ends meet”

After the concert I saw last night, is there any doubt which band I’ll feature for Music Monday? But which song? There are lots to choose from – big hits, underrated gems, personal favourites – but given my interest in Freedom of Expression as well as the band’s reputation in general, how about possibly G […]
