Malajube playing at Lee Palace in Toronto
I have been listening to this French Canadian
rock band since I heard about them on CBC radio some time in July.
I think it was on Sounds Like Canada in the summer with Jian Ghomeshi. No now that I think about it it could have been back when The National Playlist was on CBC radio one.
In any case Me and and Green Tea went to go see the band live this weekend.
There were two opening band one was Bocce http://www.kwbocceclub.com/. I did not catch the name of the other band. Of the two bocce stood out a bit more.
Then the band we were all waiting for came on at Midnight. They asked the audience how did they hear about Malajube. We yelled out, 'CBC!!'
They explained the delay was due to one of the members having a reaction to eating a street hot dog, and was on and off the stage depending on how he was feeling. The poor guy played while sitting down on the stage leaning up against the drum set.
The band is pro and still played the wildest, catchiest, head bopping music in any language. No translation needed. Good is Good!
During the encore the keyboardist dived into the mosh pit and people moved out of his way. You could almost hear the thud. ouch!
I overheard one audience member say 'hey this is Toronto we don't catch people here.' Don't worry the keyboardist was picked up and carried up through the mosh pit and delivered back on to the stage and he was (hopefully)no worse for wear.
I had a great time for a 10$ ticket as did Green Tea. She even bought a CD from Bocce at the door.

(for entertainment purposes only folks!)
I got a little reading that tells me things are looking up.... I won't tell you what the reading was but I will review it in 6 weeks because some of it is supposed to happen within a month...
Ha. We'll see. I do card readings as an icebreaker for others but it's hard to do a reading for myself without loosing my objectivity... I can't read me very well.
Ironic this is I am going a psychic evening with the Meet Market Adventures at the end of this month.
I get 3 readings with 3 different psychics in Toronto while mingling with singles...
If they say the same thing that the free online reading says... I'll let you know. ;-)

The Casino was as expected, tons of ways to lose your money and a buffet lunch... It was fine. Like paying a voluntary entertainment tax and chatting with new friends while you do it.
The highlight was it was snowing and dark as we left the casino and boarded the bus back home to Toronto. Very pretty! Very cozy sitting in the darkened bus watching the snowy fields passing by. You know that you lost the money you were planning to lose and not more (if you plan it right). You get to hear all the gossip and news about the singles group that you go on these adventures with. I even heard the dish on the guy I had been dating... aaaaah. Very interesting. It's funny that Toronto can be a small town in that you run into the same people or people that know those people...
There was no snow when I got back to Toronto. But the magic of the snow in the country side has put me in the mood to start my Christmas shopping. The Avon man came by at just the right time... I hope you like Avon if you are expecting a gift from me.

I saw it by myself because It's the kind of film that is not for everybody.
It may even offend some people.
I saw Conversations With God.
I'm such a rebel.
One man left the film before the end.
When the film ended I heard someone say that was the best film of the year to date.
When I came out of the theater I felt good.
Simple message of the film is ask yourself "what would love do?"
This is the 'Kodak' generated sketch of all the adults in my family.
When I am ready I will draw them for real.
I guess I didn't clean out my itunes like I keep telling myself I should.
I am going to listen to the random list my itunes went to all the trouble of setting up for me.
Oh well maybe traveling down this musical path will remind me why I put them on there in the first place.
Part Of The Plan - Dan Fogelberg - Greatest Hits
Be My Yoko Ono - BNL - Gordon
The Tower - Chris De Burgh - Spanish Train And Other Stories
Your Beautiful - James Blunt - Back To Bedlam
Sisters Are Doing It For Themselves - Eurythmics - Be Yourself Tonight
Call Me Calmly - BNL - Born On A Pirate Ship
It's Growing - Ellen McIlwaine - Up From The Skies
Looking For A Ride - Seabone - so indie they don't have an album

I know you probably voted for the stroumboulopouli already every morning, afternoon or evening but if you haven't and I am not saying you have to... it's OK I won't be sad.
Thanks for showing us the love!
The link is also on my sidebar if your looking for this post but I moved on to other subjects...
Other great blogs you may, or may not want to show love to, that are in the running in other categories are InsideTheCBC, Rick Mercer, CBC Radio Three and Matthew Goods Blog. Good luck to all of us.

I got home tonight very tired after a long day.
I checked the mail and left the house.
Tonight I had to go register and vote in the municipal election.
I am now a registered voter in Toronto.
Not just a Torontonian now, but a participatory Torontonian.
Good luck to all the candidates.
May the best Mayor win.

I know it's supposed to be played on a Friday but what the heck.
This list reminds me I need to clear some songs off my itunes.
1. I Don't Want To Play. Ellen McIlwaine
2. Conquistador. Procol Harum
3. In This Life. Chantal Kreviazuk
4. Una Rosa A Dicembre. Gino Vannelli
5. Deep Forest - Sweet Lullaby. Author unknown
6. Brother Down. Sam Roberts
7. The Novelty of Me. Seabone
8. Vanishing. Barenaked Ladies
9. Mode of Infusion. Seabone
10. Bull In A China Shop. Barenaked Ladies
Seabone got on there twice. So did BNL.
If you have never heard of Seabone it's an indi band in Vancouver and my late boyfriend was friends with Linda who happens to be a singer with that band. Graham lived in Vancouver for 8 years and left many friends there. Before Graham left this earth Linda had sent him a CD of their music. Maybe two of their songs getting on there at random was a message to remember to write her... see how's she is doing.
This is a picture Linda took of Graham and friends.
Two random BNL songs is because I have all my BNL CDs on there and it was just a good chance there would be...
or maybe it's a message to get Barenaked....
Speaking of Random I was eating burgers with my sister at Burger Shack today and I saw Dave Broadfoot walking by..... It was cool and random.
By: Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918)
IN FLANDERS FIELDS the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
I wanted to start off the remembrance day post with that poem.
I also want to thank all the Canadian Veterans who fought for our Country.
Both my grandfather's in WWI
My Uncles and Aunts in WWII.
All the men and women who have faced the horrors of war.
I pray for peace in your souls
I pray for peace in all of society
Peace to all people and an end to all wars.

In the theme that life is short I now try to do a couple of cool things each week.
This weeks plan includes; Going to a taping of The Hour on Monday afternoon and going to Yuk Yuks on Thursday night with the MMA. I think we can throw in a Birthday celebration for my sister C. And my nephew L. on the weekend.
At Whirly Ball last night Meet Market Adventures videotaped the games to put up on the new website. Not sure when that is going up you can follow the link and keep an eye open if you want to see the game in action.

I learned to play pool yesterday.
I have played pool before but with little skill or luck for that matter.
My sister and I went out to a night of pool lessons. I have to say I had a lot of fun and my game has improved quite a bit.
Saturday night I am going to play whirly ball again, with my sister and her friend. I think I have the hang of the whirly ball bumper car control, I just need more practice hitting the target with the ball. You remember whirly ball? A cross between bumper cars and lacrosse.
Ok neither activity is an Olympic sport but it is a great way to meet new people and make friends in a city like Toronto.
You gotta be brave, go out there and just meet people.
