D'you suppose we could get at least twenty people interested in a Canadian Music community?

Neil Young, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Kashtin, Tanya Tagaq, Metric, Bruce Cockburn, New Pornographers, Arcade Fire, Rush, Stars, Coeur de Pirate, the list goes on...

Putting the question out there.

And we've lost Chuck Berry and Berni Wrightson so far this weekend, among many others whose lives I know far less of.

Update 19 March 2017: Add Jimmy Breslin to that list. :-(

If you dare: Bruce Cockburn's "All Our Dark Tomorrows", suggested by the letters section in today's Toronto Star.

Opening line: "The village idiot takes the throne, his the wind in which all must sway..."

Good morning, and good luck.

(At least it was local morning when I wrote this.)

CBC Music's starting up another edition of their annual Searchlight competition, for those Canadians reading this with an eye on music as part of their income-earning or sanity-supporting programmes.

Details on their YouTube channel on how to enter.

With diligence and luck, Canada's music library will improve in both size and quality as a result. It usually does.

The reaving continues, it seems...

(Confirmed by CBC, BBC and too many other news services.)

I get out of the movie theatre after seeing Deepwater Horizon, and I find out that Leonard Cohen is dead?

Sure, we knew it was coming with Cohen, but the timing still stinks like sulphur.

Mr. Kabango:

I thank you for your work this past year as interviewer, journalist, teacher and entertainer. It is deeply appreciated. I hope your partnership with CBC continues and evolves in the years to come.

Found via Gawker Media's Foxtrot Alpha blog on military news and opinions (usually from a US perspective):



For the record: among the musicians that brought my father joy during his life was the Swedish band ABBA. I think he would've enjoyed this interpretation.

Opening up the long Ontario weekend with this. Possibly usable in an Agents of SHIELD episode. Consider it hereby suggested to the powers that be for that TV series.
