Blue Rodeo (with special guests, The Sadies)

Last night Canadian iconic band, Blue Rodeo (with opening act, The Sadies) brought their 1000 Arms Tour to Oshawa’s Tribute Communities Centre.

While my favourite song is Diamond Mine (see above) I was introduced to an old song by Blue Rodeo called “Disappear”. A sad story, great lyrics and wonderful song. Here’s a fan’s recording from a gig in Toronto:

Here is last night’s setlist:

Book Report: Riverside Drive by Michael Januska

I was given this book, Riverside Drive (Michael Januska) a few years ago when I visited the book publisher, Dundurn.

I could not wait to finish this book so I could finally read another. I’m sure that on another day this book might have captured my attention. But, alas, it did not. Mr. Januska failed to activate my imagination. And this is one of the things I look for in a fiction book.

You might like it though.
