Conservative Minority

So they won again.
For all you Conservatives out there was it worth it?

Was it worth Harper breaking his own law?

Was it worth 300 million of our money?

Was it really worth the 10 seats?

Congratulations, just a little bit more than 50% of eligible people voted and you still couldn't get a majority.

See you again in two years.

Jordan Knight - Then and Now

Jordan Knight - Baby I Believe In You - Then

Jordan Knight - Baby I Believe In You - Now

Some 18 years later.

I have to say it was the best 70 bucks I have spent on a concert and I think he sounds even better now.

Canadian Singers/Songs From the 80's/90's

Since I have decided that it's time for a look back, how about some music that was huge from the late 80's early 90's, and it was all homegrown.

I learned about most of these singers on Canada's very own video show.
It was called Video Hits. It aired on CBC every weekday afternoon at 4:30.
You didn't dare miss it.

Here's a clip from Video Hit's in case you need a reminder.

Some notable hits.

Candy and the Backbeats - Dancing Under a Latin Moon 1988

Haywire - Dance Desire

Can't forget Black and Blue from Haywire either.

Tu - Stay With Me

Taken directly from a broadcast of Video Hits

I have to admit I love the matching cow/zebra print dresses....classy. That was also some pretty big hair.

Platinum Blonde - Crying Over You

We had to learn this song and sing it in music class in 1985....I was in grade 7.

Platinum Blonde - Situation Critical

Eight Seconds - Kiss You When It's Dangerous.

I think this group was actually from Ottawa. Yup from Ottawa.

Toronto - Your Daddy Don't Know - 1982

Lee Aaron -Wha'cha do ta my body

Luba - Let it Go - 1984

Luba - Everytime I see your face

Luba - How Many (Rivers to Cross)

Glass Tiger - Don't Forget Me (When I'm gone) - 1986

Glass Tiger - Thin Red Line

I think I still have Allen Frew's guitar pick from the concert at the NAC.

Glass Tiger - Diamond Sun - 1988

Corey Hart - Sunglasses At Night

Corey Hart - Never Surrender

Corey Hart - Boy in the box - 1985

Songs From The Movies

In the late 80's early 90's it seemed like almost every movie had a huge hit song. I'm not sure if the song was hit before or after the movie but I thought I would post a few of my favourite songs that were included in some of the biggest movies of the time.

First up is Starship - Nothing is Gonna Stop us Now

This song is from the classic Mannequin. In case you haven't seen it Kim Cattrell stars as a Mannequin that comes to life.

How 'bout a little St. Elmo's Fire.
Coincidentally enough staring Andrew McCarthy from Mannequin.

And to end with Electric Dreams.

The song is Together In Electric Dreams.

I never saw this movie in theater, but I wanted to. I still remember when I finally got to see it for the first time. It was way back in the spring of 1990 my brother and my Grandparents were on a trip to England to see our relatives. We took a weekend to go to Blackpool where my grandmother spend some time as a child. Electric Dreams was playing on the late show. I think my brother was less than impressed to have to watch it.

Here's the video

In case your interested here's the movie trailer.

Madonna Turns 50

Madonna Louise Ciccone Ritchie

Born August 16th 1958

Happy Birthday Lady...

A sampling of photos through the years.
In no particular order.

What would a Madonna post be without some music?

First up one of the songs that made her famous and parents hate her.

Like a Virgin

The controversy continued and so did the great music in 1989 with

Like a Prayer

Finally the latest from the Material Girl.

Give it to me.

One of my favorite songs of her newest album titled Hard Candy. - Têtes A Claques

Have you heard of Têtes A Claques?
My brother and sister-in-law introduced us to them almost two years ago.
It's a site that produces hilarious short little videos.
Very disturbing videos actually.
They use live action eyes and mouths and place them over cartoons.
I watched dozens of them when I first was introduced to the new site.
Even with my limited French, I was hurting from all the laughing.
This weekend premiered.
Same site but now in English.
You really need to check it out.
Each week there is a new video, there not all classics, but they rarely miss their mark.
The best part for me they are produced here at home in Canada.

Here are a couple of links to get you started.

The Secretary

Goin' Out

Disney Photo

The Frogs

The Googoos

Now a couple of the French classics.
Even if you don't speak french, give'm a try, you'll see.

The Willy Waller 2006

The LCD Shovel 2007

All Star Family Fortunes aka Family Feud

Well in Canada and the U.S. this show is called Family Feud.
Like the British usually do they changed the name of game and classed up the show a bit.

Here is a clip of Family Fortunes.
It hurts too laugh so much.
The cute guys didn't hurt though.

I checked the produce department at the grocery store and they never heard of
Les Beans.

Okay here is another funny youtube find.
This is a PSA for the Honey Bees.

Next up gross, funny, but gross.
I didn't think this was really possible.

Lastly trapped in an elevator.

This man was trapped in an elevator in NYC for over forty hours.
The time lapse camera caught it all.
Good thing he wasn't claustrophobic.
