To be fair, the map should be revised with Alberta Jebus-land green, save for a tiny dot of pink for (R)Edmonton.

Miss Carol has pretty much covered it - Soundscapes is my favourite place to buy music too - and it's a great neighbourhood for a stroll and a gelato (although it's a bit chilly for gelato). She Said Boom is also in the same neck of the woods at 372 College, just east of Bathurst - an interesting se...

Nobodygirl - My father-in law is a big-time Republican (even though we're up here in Canada)so I feel your pain. Two thoughts for responding to your father: 1. Play opossum- tell him those web-sites won you over and there's no need to send anymore 2. Hit back at your Pops - here are a few more to su...

If you had the power of Oprah...

This question began on a road trip as a discussion about Oprah's bookclub, but I think it carries over to music too. Whilst on said road trip, we were discussing the Power of Oprah - she can introduce millions of viewers to any book just by putting a sticker on the cover and jibber jabbering about i...

I see Avi at gigs all over town - he seems to be a bit of a regular at Lee's Palace - but I've never seen Naomi with him (wish I had a clever punchline about her absence). Wilco was worth skipping class for - it was a really great show. There were still tickets available at the box office and plenty...

Ron MacLean a friend of Wilco?

Saw Wilco in Toronto last night. I got my seats the day before they officially went on sale via Wilco's ticket site, but Ron MacLean - Canada's Al Michael's? - was sitting in front of us. I can only conclude that due to the NHL strike, Ron has more time on his hands and was that much quicker with mo...

Right around the time that Fables of the Reconstruction came out, a girl in my grade 10 art class gave me cassette of an REM show taped at Larry's Hideaway in 1983 called The Rising . I was an instant convert and followed the band pretty closely until Out of Time was released and I just stopped lovi...

All this flag talk reminds me of John Prine's Your Flag Decal Won't Get You Into Heaven Anymore... But your flag decal won't get you into Heaven anymore, We're already overcrowded from your dirty little war. Now Jesus don't like killin' no matter what the reason's for, And your flag decal won't get ...

We've really tried to avoid any children's programming for our 13 month old daugher. I have nightmares of being trapped in a car having to play Hakuna Matata over and over and over again. As a result, she listens to whatever we're listening to and it seems to have worked so far. No pleas yet for the...

Cheney v. Leahy: Seven Minutes of Funk

A far more interesting take on what actually happened on the Senate Floor from The New Yorker of all places, with a generous poke at the FCC thrown in for goood measure.
