Finally onboard the Christmas train
Haha got my German cards mailed today, with pictures and everything. Now I just have the other 17 gajillion to do.
But at least I've started on something more now than just dumping brandy over the fruitcake. I shopped my ass off for an hour this afternoon and got a few presents. Unfortunately I have a bunch more to nab that I still have to mail away.
You see, it's all my siblings' fault. We all agreed that we would now no longer buy for each others' families, but somehow in my simple mind that got translated into "I don't need to do anything for Christmas". I realised the other day that's not strictly true.
I just heard that the next Canada Reads panel has been announced and among the panelists are none other than Scott Thompson of Kids in the Hall (yay!) and John K Samson of the Weakerthans (more yay!). John's book pick is A Complicated Kindness by Miriam Toews, which makes sense as she is a Winnipeg writer, while Scott's book pick is Mordecai Richler's Cocksure. Which also makes sense, harhar.
Has anybody got any information on a band called Shoulder?
They were a punk band in London, Ontario (I'm guessing in the early 90s) and they were Bry Webb's band before the Constantines.
I should know them as I lived in London from 87-97 but I was busy marrying and babying and renovating at the time and sort of got away from music for a while. Shit happens.
I'd love to find some info on them though. Do you know how many Googles entries there are for the word "Shoulder"?
