O Canada!

I don't know why, but I have a love affair with Canada. All things Canadian seem to connect with me on some deep level.

Such as:
  • The Tragically Hip.
  • The Barenaked Ladies.
  • Arcade Fire.
  • Our Lady Peace.
  • Joni Mitchell.
  • Leonard Cohen.
  • The Kids in the Hall.
  • Corner Gas.
  • Rush.
  • My favorite pro wrestlers growing up were all Canadian: Bret and Owen Hart, Chris Jericho, and He Who Shall Not Be Named.
  • The first five seasons (read: the watchable seasons) of The X-Files were filmed there.
  • So is the new Battlestar Galactica.
  • The entire cast of SCTV.
  • James Cameron, who was one of my favorite filmmakers until Titanic -- he's Canadian.
  • And so on.
Those are just the ones off the top of my head. I've found a new Canadian band to love: the New Pornographers, whose "The Electric Version" has become one of my favorite Rock Band songs. The album of the same name is great, too.

Now playing: The New Pornographers - All for Swinging You Around
