Music Monday – “What’s the harm in meeting me/800 block of Robinson Street/I’ll be in town for a weekend stay”

Blake Berglund is my unofficial campground theme music this summer. This past weekend, his “Coyote” album was the first one I played when we arrived and the last one I played when we left! And here’s the lead-off song from that album which is such a great way to draw you into the album… “Come […]

Music Monday – “It’s Canada Day up Canada way on the first day of July/And we’re shoutin’ “hooray” up Canada way, when the maple leaf flies high.”

Is there any musician that defines Canada more than Stompin’ Tom?  And is there a better song to post on this long weekend of Canada’s 150th Anniversary? “Canada Day Up Canada Way” – Stompin’ Tom Connors

Canada Day 2015 at Echo Valley Provincial Park & Fort Qu’Appelle

Poking around for ideas about what we might do this weekend at our seasonal site, I came across this video which gives a good sense of the Fort Qu’Appelle Canada Day parade and fireworks a couple years ago.

Music Monday – “She’s learning how to surf/Going with the flow/Peace out from San Diego/She is letting me go”

One of my favourites, Sam Baker, has another album that he just released last week. It’s already getting rave reviews from many quarters. “Peace Out” – Sam Baker

Great @ryanmeili Speech – “A Question of Trust”

I meant to post this when I first saw it as I thought it was a pretty powerful speech, so unique and different from the usual generic “blah blah” you hear from so many politicians. In it, Ryan Meili talks about the reasons why the general public doesn’t trust politicians.  He points out how politicians […]

Music Monday – “So I’m a free enterprising socialist/Gonna take my cut and share the rest/Left wing as the right wing gets/I’ll vote ’em in for the test”

Really enjoying Blake Berglund on my “Saskatchewan-artists-only” playlist at our seasonal site at Echo Valley Provincial Park. (I’m a bit late to the game but in looking more into Berglund for this post, I see that he’s just completed a personal challenge to sell 1000 copies of his albums in the month of May, mostly through […]

Music Monday – “Take me to the place where you go/Where nobody knows if it’s night or day/But please don’t put your life in the hands/Of a Rock ‘n’ Roll band/Who’ll throw it all away”

Yesterday’s “One Love for Manchester” concerts, pulled together only a couple weeks after a terrorist bombing at an Ariana Grande concert are being compared to the 1970’s “Concert for Bangladesh“, the 1980’s “Live Aid“, the 1990’s “Tibetan Freedom Concert” and the 2000’s “Live 8” as another in a long line of notable benefit concerts – this being […]

Friday Fun Link – Barack Obama’s Coolest Presidential Moments

Ah, simpler times…  

Friday Fun Link – “Beep Beep, I’m A Sheep!”

I bookmarked this a while back.  A Regina man has created a comedy song that’s topping the charts.  

Friday Fun Link – Ten Bands I’ve Seen (One Is A Lie) (And A Full Fred Eaglesmith Concert Video Too)

The latest meme to take over Facebook is “These Are 10 Bands I’ve Seen (One Is A Lie)“. There’s two main elements to the meme – one is you are defining your persona (are all your bands punk?  Hipster?  Goth?  Will people believe you saw some unhip band like the Beach Boys if ever other […]
