RUSH Playing "Tom Sawyer" On Rock Band



Here is a video I found on YouTube of the band RUSH playing "Tom Sawyer" on Rockband on Expert Level. They failed the song and only got 31%! Even professional musicians can't get a perfect score on Rockband on their own song. Take a look!

Daddy helping Tara with her homework.

Now that the school year has started once again, it is now time for nightly homework with my daughter Tara. She is in grade 2 this year in the french immersion program. As for me, daddy, I have forgotten what it is like to do homework. I was getting a little frustrated trying to help her with the homework as it is mostly in french. I just have to remember what it was like when I was her age and had to learn things for the first time. When it came time for the math homework Tara breezed her way right through the exercise. Tara is an intelligent girl and I believe she will excel once she learns the basics of reading, writing and mathematics. She is quickly learning conversation "en francais" in the classroom. When I went to a student/teacher meeting at the end of last school year, Tara was having direct conversations with her teacher "en francais" and I was blown away by her talents. It was so amazing to see my little girl having and intelligent conversation with her teacher. I was proud of her!

My friend Brian Malone playing/singing acoustic songs.



Here is a video of my friend Brian Malone playing/singing two acoustic songs. Brian was the former lead vocalist in two different, Canadian, rock bands "The Works" and "Wall Of Silence". I first met Brian in 1989 in Toronto, ON. when I was attending Humber College. We used to be neighbours in the same apartment building. That year, Brian introduced me to his band "The Works" and they were quite popular around the Toronto area and their videos were played on MuchMusic in heavy rotation. The CD by "The Works" was called "From Out Of Nowhere and I still play it regularily.

Recently, I was able to contact Brian again after many years by email and he said they he remembered me from all the years ago in Toronto. Then I found this video here on YouTube which I think is great! I have played it more than a few times and I just love the songs! I could just imagine what they would sound like played with a full band. Guitars, bass, drums, keys, vocals and harmonies. I sure do hope that Brian will record these songs and release them on a CD in the future. So friends, check out this video, take a listen to these songs, and tell me what you think.

Cheers!

Chronic drunk driver handed life sentence


Today I read a new story about a chronic drunk driver who has received a life sentence for killing a wheelchair-bound Quebec woman with his minivan, though he has escaped being labelled as a dangerous offender. First thing I thought was finally the law was working for the good. Then a friend made a point about how the guy was a repeat offender. He wondered why all the judges before this new one did not prosecute the man to the full extent of the law? That was a good point. There should be no such thing as a repeat offender for a drunk driver, or murderer, or rapist. Why do our laws not work for the victim? So, the judge has made legal history in Canada by handing out the life sentence but, will it set a precident for future offenders? The laws should be changed to reflect the nature of the offense. If you kill someone by drunk driving, then you should get the maximum penalty for your actions. It should be no different than if a person kills someone with a gun, a knife, a rope, or any other weapon. Drunk driving resulting in death of another person is still murder and the laws should reflect it. That is my own opinion. What is yours?
