Match the Quote
I like movies a lot. Each week, I’m going to list quotes from either my favourite movies or movies related to a theme (Frosh Week, the Holidays, etc)
1) The Thin Red Line
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.
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.
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.
