What Went Wrong?

Barefoot Justine

SimonGarfunkelI’ve had this problem, one that started early into adulthood. The problem is that there is music I love that I cannot bear. Be it in the background at a supermarket, on the radio, with friends, on my own, this music always brings me to tears. Not tears due to the content, it’s something else, something that is so deep in me I never could quite pinpoint it. It’s not a feeling I have about anything else, no matter how much I love, have loved, or how terribly important it has been in my life. It’s Simon and Garfunkel. I have not even owned any of their albums on CD, as the music they made began stirring me to tears way back in the days of vinyl. Why?

I missed the sixties, they were before my time, but I did not miss the aftermath, the music was still in the…

Reelin’ in the Years – 1971

It's 1971 and I'm nine years old. Trying to decide on my favorite tune for this year is almost impossible. I could list several. Pop music has not only shifted into a whole new genre in the 70s, but my young brain is maturing now, and I clearly remember all the tunes. Music was having... Continue Reading →

Reelin’ in the Years – 1970

It's 1970 and I'm eight years old. You had to be there to really understand what 1970 meant. Today it seems so long ago, so old-fashioned. I mean, 70s music. That's dad and mom music. Maybe even grandpa and grandma music! I remember sitting in junior school and seeing the date written in chalk on... Continue Reading →

Reelin’ in the Years – 1964

So it's time once again to pick my fav song for a particular year. This time 1964. '64 was the year of the British Invasion. Take a look at the Billboard top 100 for that year and you'll be amazed how many Beatles tunes fill the chart. I started to get mixed up counting at... Continue Reading →

Christmas is for kids

Taken today at one of the more economically disadvantaged parishes in Toronto (area-wise). Seems these amazing people are doing the most for kids this Xmas. And isn't that usually the way? Those with a lot grasp on to it and are often cheap and miserly. Those with a little know what it means to be... Continue Reading →

Another great Trek episode… (slight spoiler alert)

Caught season 1 episode 3 of the new Star Trek TV series last night. I felt this one would indicate if the show was heading somewhere or just going to fizzle, as did Star Trek Enterprise. Pleasantly surprised again. The best part, I thought, was how the quirky Captain of Discovery tells Michael Burnham that... Continue Reading →

Google Street View – What is Big Brother Watching?

Web cams in public spaces are a fact of life. Also, individuals with video-equipped phones have changed our way of life. In a nutshell, abusive people can't get away with what they used to get away with, because chances are they'll be videoed and perhaps charged. That's the plus side. The down side, detractors say,...

Here’s my solution… but, of course, it ‘aint mine…

I recently posted a nice article basically encouraging Jews and Muslims to better get along. I'm all for that. I also realize that people tend to be happy with their religious traditions and don't want to change. At the same time, I sometimes wish that those who don't really get what Christ is about could...
