10 Best Canadian Musical Acts of All Time

Paste Magazine's Josh Jackson provides his list of Top 10 Canadian music acts. Being Canadian, this article in and American magazine/website naturally caught my eye. I don't know if the author is Canadian or not, but it's interesting to see other's views and opinions. It obvously reflects their individual taste in music. There are many groups and individuals to choose from. The 3 below serve as examples, albeit they may be a tad obscure to some music fans...

For example, I would have included Canada's "Americana" darling Kathleen Edwards. But no argument from me on the inclusion of Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, the Band and Neil Young. The rest of the Canadian Top 10 can be found here. Who would you have included in this august group? BTO? The Guess Who? Chilliwack? Valdy? Lightfoot? Ian and Sylvia?

Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All . (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song) Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress... I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparentl

The Worst Christmas Present Ever

My pals over at Tribal Blogs are holding their first Blog Carnival today and the subject is the worst Christmas present ever. Remember Ralphie in the movie A Christmas Story ? His, as my readers point out, Aunt Clara sent him a bunny costume. Yeah, it sure sucked to be him. Hey sometimes Christmas doesn't work out for some of us. Look at my grandsons last Christmas. Things went from this... ...to this... Heh, heh. That's one picture my daughter doesn't want to share too widely. So keep quiet about it, okay? When I was a kid, Christmas was such a special time. The snow outside, the tree, the lights, the food, visiting relatives and neighbours. And of course the presents. My own kids loved Christmas too and would pore through the Sears Wish Book Catalogue as soon as it arrived in the mail, dog-earing pages upon pages of pictures of gifts they wanted for Christmas. And they were pretty lucky. They usually got most of what they asked for. Today the grandkids are lucki
