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 […]

Music Monday – “Bullets for your brain today/But we’ll forget it all again/Monuments put from pen to paper/Turns me into a gutless wonder”

“If You Tolerate This (Your Children Will Be Next)” – Manic Street Preachers

“You got no right to take my joy/I want it back” #DearSask Protest Tribute Video #yqr #yxe #skpoli #SaveSKLibraries @saskmla @premierbradwall

I made a quick video of some of the highlights from the DEARSask protests that happened on Friday.  These read-ins saw nearly 6000 people at 85 sites across the province protesting the drastic cuts to the province’s public libraries. My biggest problem making this video?  Way too many pictures to choose from! So this video includes a […]

Friday Fun Link – Southpaw Regional Wrestling

WWE has released some short web-only videos of a fictional 1980’s wrestling promotion, Southpaw Regional Wrestling. Current superstars play up the stereotypical characters and tropes of that era of wrestling with love, affection and great humour – which makes this one of the most entertaining things WWE has done in the past year! Here’s a […]

Music Monday – “To feel the ground beneath my feet/Knowing I’m free/To walk the walk and talk the talk/Sounds okay to me”

This song has a few scenes shot in Shea’s hometown (including shots of a community store and grain elevator that figured prominently in our wedding reception which we held the summer after our destination wedding for all the friends and relatives who couldn’t make it to Mexico.) “The Hobo Song” – Bob Westfall and Westfall […]

Walking Tours on YouTube

Shea recently told me a great tip – YouTube has numerous walking/running tours that you can put on your TV while using your treadmill. What a great way to make time on the treadmill more interesting!

Music Monday – “Now why don’t you look down/To where your feet is planted/That U.S. soil that makes you take shit for granted/If not for Santa Ana, just to let you know/That where your feet are planted would be México”

I heard this song on the TV when we were in Mexico in 2003 and even without understanding (most of) the lyrics, it struck me as something very political and meaningful which has only become more relevant in light of Trump’s desire to build a border wall with Mexico. At the time, I jotted enough of the lyrics […]

Music Monday – “South of the border, down Mexico way/That’s where I fell in love, when the stars above came out to play/And now as I wander, my thoughts ever stray/South of the border, down Mexico way” (And Our Wedding Slideshow!)

Shea likes to joke that I was the “best bride ever” when we were planning our destination wedding in the Mayan Riviera back in 2002. And it’s true – my natural “anal retentive” librarian personality shone through as I pretty much handled all the arrangements from flowers to writing the entire script for the ceremony […]

Saturday Snap – “Doritos Roulette” Challenge

One fun thing about being on holidays is that Pace and I spontaneously decided to go grab some late night snacks tonight after both Sasha and mom were in bed. He likes regular Doritos but decided to try a flavour that’s mostly regular Doritos but also has some super-hot ones mixed in (even though he’s […]
