Gord Downie - RIP

Post by markl » Fri Oct 20, 2017 4:10 pm

More than a little bit of Canada slipped away earlier this week. So thankful for Gord Downie - and the Tragically Hip.

Only because it is my favourite. If any of you don't know them, plow through their albums. He was like our poet laureate. We knew it was coming, but it's devastating that it had to be.

"Hey man, thanks".

how to be in a number one rock band (in canada, and only in canada):

1. find some local rural tales of woe and murder
2. write songs according to the stories (unless you're a complete retard this shit should write itself)
3. sing the songs in the style of (choose at least two):

feargal sharkey
belinda carlisle
stevie nicks
dolly parton
some btice riding the spin cycle in an earthquake

no yodelayheehooing offence, l'homos.

Yep, he was. As for the Buds, their early season run will not last.

BTW, Letterkenny is on its way to being another quintessentially Canadian thing. I suspect Gord liked it.
