Hey, wanna live in the house where Metallica's James Hetfield wrote Enter Sandman? It's for sale. It's a beauty. It can be yours for 3.3 million.
I ran into Conservative Tim Hudak in the hall at work today. He was nice enough to listen to my frusterated rant about how the Provincial Liberal Government is running the debt up and wasting our money and not being accountable for it, and how I want someone to do something about it...whew, I feel a little better...!
Nobody has done a better job in promoting science, space travel, and igniting the imaginations of countless "future astronauts" than Canada's Chris Hadfield. He is on his way back to earth today, but didn't leave his tenure as Commander of the International Space Station without this final souvenir. This is officially the first music video ever filmed in outer space! David Bowie should be honoured, and has already given it 2 thumbs up!
John Cleese is bringing his tour to Canada for the first time this fall! The "John Cleese: Last Time To See Me Before I Die" Tour is at the NAC September 19, 20 and 21st! Tickets just went on sale today.
I post this today because we are heading into the weekend and I hope that you have some time to watch this video. Tickets are sold out to "An Intimate Evening With Dr. Jane Goodall" on Saturday in Ottawa, but Dr. Goodall would want you to hear what she has learned. In 1960, Dr. Goodall went into the jungle to live with and study chimpanzees. Although she is almost 80, she travels 300 days a year to spread the word on how to save them from extinction, and how your every day choices can help preserve a planet that can sustain wildlife in the wild - what a concept! Don't worry, it's not a downer; she is so hopeful. Enjoy!
Note, there's more than a few F-bombs here, but it's classic Dave Grohl, along with fellow Foo Fighter, Taylor Hawkins inducting RUSH into the rock n roll Hall Of Fame! It's a shakey start..cue it in 30 seconds if you like...Grohl told a reporter that during rehearsal, Neil Peart asked if he could make him a cup of coffee, which Grohl accepted. Later that night, he went out and had a few glasses of wine and cried over the fact that his hero made him a cup of coffee. That's down to earth Dave...love that he's still a fan of music and musicians when he could be just aloof about it. So, Nirvana is eligable to be inducted next year....I wonder who will induct them should they make it?

Nothing says, “You LOSE!” like a consolation prize worth $45 000! That’s what the statue-less nominees will walk out with at the end of the Oscar Awards on Sunday night.
I have just found out what is IN those swag bags.
How about a $12 000 trip to Australia, condoms, a $600 acupuncture appointment and a package of 10 personal training sessions valued at $850. Circus lessons for the nominee’s children worth $400 are tossed in for fun, as well as a little cosmetic surgery! Winning losers will take home a $5 000 facelift procedure, a one year membership to Heathrow Airport’s private VIP Service, and a $3 000 stay at the St. Regis Punta Mita Resort in Mexico.
As far as tradition goes, these Oscar goody bags for losers are relatively new. Not surprisingly, a marketing firm came up with the idea eleven years ago, so that it could reach ...
