15 Songs by Canadian Artists to Celebrate Canada’s 150th Birthday

It is fitting that I follow up a post about my own birthday with a one about Canada’s as the True North strong and free celebrates the day after KRISmas (which has always served me well once I became 19 and got acquainted with Corona). July 1st, Canada Day means a lot of things to me; first, it is the day after my birthday, which as I mentioned is a time to recover from the night before, and is the suspected date of birth of my beloved deceased dog Kyser. July 1st is also a day to remember soldiers from Newfoundland on what we call Memorial Day and I always remember laying a wreath for my great grandfather, even though…

Souled Out: Why Can’t I Get Tickets To That Concert?

souled out

I decided to steal, or actually, mock the title of an article I came across last Sunday about how Bono is basically super unholy and tries to mask himself as a Christian in order to lead people away from the church. I threw up a bunch and couldn’t finish the article and I will not link to the ridiculousness in order to save your lunches and hope in humanity. I don’t believe in God and I definitely don’t believe in the Devil but if there were such a guy, he quite possibly could be the CEO of a little company called Ticketmaster. Yes, I’m firing shots at Ticketmaster. Ticketmaster is essentially a monopoly. If you want tickets to a concert…

Record Store Day 2017

Record Store Day

It’s been about seven years since I first heard of Record Store Day and even then, I didn’t know too much about it other than the fact that my favorite band in the entire galaxy U2, was releasing a limited edition (of only five thousand to be exact) EPs on vinyl for Record Store Day’s “Back To Black Friday” initiative. At the time, I didn’t even own a record player, but I contacted our local record store, Fred’s and asked if they were getting any copies of this collectible item in. That’s all I thought of Wide Awake In Europe; a collectible item. Black Friday came and went and I got my hands on the record. The EP’s sleeve was…

My Complicated Relationship with Drake

Things are complicated between me and Drake, and judging from the subject matter of a vast majority of his songs that is probably the way he likes it. I thought of this as I lay in bed listening to More Life the morning after it was released. (I probably would have listened to it as soon as it hit the Internet but I had belated St. Paddy’s Day plans the night before). I was excited about a new Drake album…er playlist. So excited in fact that I signed up for Apple Music in case it was a streaming exclusive (and quickly got rid of it a few days later when it messed with my meticulously organized iTunes library). I’ve been a fan of…

The Analog Age: Three Old School, yet New Age Blokes

For the longest time I figured my adoration for The Analog Age came from my deep love for the three band mates. They each held a special place in my heart completely outside of their musical talents and my pride was bursting every time they went on stage. Like a mom in the corner cheerleading like a boss. “Those are my boys up there; they are going to be famous some day! You’ll see, you’ll all see!”   Well in a sense, my motherly instincts were right. In September, The Analog Age posted their first video for “No Sleep” and it went NL Viral. With 12K views and 112 Shares, these boys have some recognizable talent. During this tidal wave…
