3)      The Nice Guys

4)      Ferris Buellers Day Off

5)      Zero Dark Thirty

a)      I’m saying, I think they died quickly. So I don’t think they got hurt.

b)      Where’s your spark now?

c)      Choose life.

d)      Can I be honest with you? I am bad fucking news.

e)      You killed the car.

Weekly Jams

In addition to movies, I also like music. Here, we’re going to see what I’ve been jamming to lately. Like with the quote section, I may also do themed weeks as well (Christmas music).

This past week was a sad one for Canadian music. Hip frontman Gord Downie finally lost his battle with brain cancer, almost a year and a half after his diagnosis. The Hip were a uniquely Canadian band who incorporated various moments of Canadian history and heritage into their music and their activism. Despite never achieving large success outside of Canada, they remained a national favourite, and have influenced nuermous other Canadian musical acts, such as the Arkells and a Tribe Called Red. In honour of Gord’s memory, here is a few of my favourite songs by the Hip.


Misc

RIP Gord Downie and John Dunsworth

Fun fact. The National Post’s Facebook comment section is the wild west.

In the last issue, I ranked Physical Graffiti ahead of Houses of the Holy on my Led Zeppelin power ranking. I listened to Houses of the Holy in its entirety a few days later. It’s the better album. Oops.
