Is that not like the best thing ever? I found it unexpectedly on my hard drive a few weeks back and almost died of the amusement.

I'm a big fan of Pete Seeger's, so it's a double-goodness thing!

I didn't know whee was a mood!

But it definitely should be a galloping horse. Definitely definitely. Not an out of control galloping horse, though, because that? Isn't so much fun. Especially when it's because the horse has gotten bitten by a snake.

I digress.

That's not a galloping horse? *shrugs* I didn't make the mood theme, ducky. Probably not out of control, because, well, it's Fraser, and since the M in RCMP doesn't stand for Motorised, I'm assuming he can ride adequately. [/meta]


I should. Should be around tonight. I had to loan Sandra my car last night, and follow her to the gas station, yadda yadda, so by the time I got home there was only time to be online sporadically. Now I am carless, so we shall see.

I was forced by your absence to post strange things about Mr. Rogers.

And I was appreciating the choice of galloping horse. Though now that I look at it, it might actually be a cantering horse.

Royal Canadian Motorised Police. This reminds me of The Great Mouse Detective where the evil rat has all the robotic wind-up police.

You're a Hip fan, too? ;D

Have you been stalking me? *glances over shoulder*

Nope, I'm not stalking you. Should I be? *g*

It's all malnpudl's fault. She's the one who pimped them so hard I thought, hmm, I'll go take a look at YouTube. I found this:




The rest is musicgeekery history. Guh. This wasn't too long ago, mind you, so I'm still Investigating, which in my dictionary means 'find out everydamnthing about whatever it is I'm Investigating'.

I am so proud. *beams*

You got my Big Honkin' File of unreleased Hip stuff, right? Seventy-some tracks, including that one? If not, give a shout and I'll do another upload.
Cats. Not to be trusted.

The way we sing it (fault lies entirely with brother and his friend):

"If I had a hammer,
Then I wouldn't need a hammer,
'Cos I'd already have a hammer..."

Ah yes the boys from Kingston, Ontario which is a lovely little city about 3 hours east of Toronto.
They really are the best band to come out of Canada since "The Guess Who" of early 70s fame. Gord Downie is an odd duck but heh, we all have our quirks.

I think you have to be a little off to be a rock star, anyway. I would not exactly call Sir Elton one of your mainstream, ordinary people. Have you read his biography? If you haven't, you so should.

Erm. That would be Sir Elton's bio, not Gord Downie's. :)
