Tunes for Canada Day!

Gordon Lightfoot…

… was pretty good considering his age and his rigourous tour schedule!

His voice, while still unmistakably “Lightfoot”, has gone a little gratey on the high notes and the power just isn’t there anymore.

But still, a good show… Edmund Fitzgerald was as haunting as ever.

Oh, one last thing… that was, by far, the WHITEST audience I’ve ever been a part of.

And the oldest too… not used to being in a crowd where I’m 20 years + under the median!!

Intermission.

Gord had better come back soon or this crowd in gonna get ugly.

Real ugly.

Crashing scooter and clashing canes ugly!

One can feel the tension. Man.

I didn’t win the contest…

… but C managed to snag a couple of fifth row seats to see Mr. Lightfoot this weekend at the NAC!

Despite my admiration for his music, I never have gotten around to seeing him perform live. Should be a great show!

End of the week miscellany

I wonder if public sector job creation is part of this. Doubtful.

  • Why, upon boarding a bus, do many people fumble around in the pockets, bags or purses for cash fare, tickets or their pass – thereby delaying everyone else on the bus? Did they think that they wouldn’t need to pay or show their pass? Can’t they plan well enough in advance and have their fare ready to plop into the box? Are they surprised to suddenly be on a bus?
  • Staying with the transit theme… OC Transpo riders have maybe noticed the green, red and while pamphlets declaring that Transit security is everyone’s business!
  • Trust your eyes! While waiting at your bus stop or riding the bus, be alert. Watch for unusual situations, behaviour or packages, and report anything suspicious!

    If you see something, say something!

    If you see something… say something…

Have I missed something? Have there been some terrorist incidents on the City’s buses? Should I tackle the next guy I see carrying a red briefcase. Yeah, I know some of you are all for increased vigilance… but doesn’t this strike you as a bit paranoid?

  • Glad Gordon Lightfoot is not dead. Funny how that rumour spread like wildfire over Twitter before being picked up by the mainstream media.  Reports indicate that Mr. Lightfoot was quite happy about this as his tunes saw a level of airplay that they hadn’t seen in years. CHEZ 106 reported this morning that they had received an email from Anne Murray saying that she had indeed passed away as well.
  • Coyotes (silent “e”) or coyoteees – which is it?
  • The pointed hatted folks in Vatican City have declared that brother André from Montréal will become a saint. Well, good for him, darn it! But I gotta say that he looks a little fragile. I mean, even as the placekicker, I think he’ll have some problems. One hit and this dude is in a mess of pain! Has anyone told Drew Brees?

  • Last, but certainly not least, I’d like to wish my eldest subunit a happy 17th birthday this Sunday! Love ya honey!
