From my walk home tonight — a mini shuffle mix, for my lovely friends, scattered around the world.

Whenever this comes on my stereo, no matter what status my life is currently floating around (good/bad/happy/sad/uncomfortable/stressed/etc), I turn it up and feel all chest-puffy awesome, kickassish and empowered. Thank you, Sharon Jones. And thank you to all those who I sing this to in my head. A good life story needs both villains and allies.

Barenaked Ladies – Enid (Video) – YouTube. ]

A few weekends ago, I was showing one of my closest friends a facebook picture (i KNOW!) of my current unrequited crush, and she said “That is the most Canadian guy I have ever seen.”

“Enid” just came on my favourite AM radio show, and I was curious what the video looked like. 15 seconds in, I realized that most of my crushes have been some sort of mashup of at least two, or maybe three of the Barenaked Ladies, (minus the unfortunate haircuts / facial hair)

Why don’t my crushes ever look like The Boss? Goddamn you, national pride.

I love Jan Terri. If anyone foresaw the youtube viral explosion back before 14.4 dial-up was a thing, they would have given her every penny of the $300 she needed to record/produce/star in her music videos.

And whenever I am doubting the validity of the book / photog / etc project I am working, I find another one of her gems, and in 2 – 4 minutes, everything makes sense.
