Taking off to the great green north

Take Off,
To The Great White North
Take Off,
It's A Beauty Way To Go

I gotta work on my Canadian dialect. Hey hosers! (or is that "un-PC"?). Headin' up to Canada for the Montreal Beer Festival and some well deserved r 'n' r. Which of course gives me an excuse to post some tunes from some of the cream of Canadian artiste's. Sorry folks, I don't have any Triumph or Bryan Adams!

We originally wanted to take the William Shatner tour; but can you believe it, they don't offer one! The shame of our neighbor's to the north is that they have NOT made William Shatner into a national icon. From what I heard, they don't even close the schools in honor of his birthday! At least Canada has it's national "Geddy Lee Day". What? They don't have that either? WTF?

At the very least, we're looking to take in a couple of Expo's games at Jarry Park, so at least we have that going for us. Does this guy still pitch for them?

Well, if you happen to be in Montreal this week and see some drunk guy in a Ramones T-Shirt...well, buy him a beer!

MOntreal Beer Fest... Lucky Bastard! I am not a fan of all-things Canadian (except Pam Anderson, William Shatner, John Candy, and Keifer Sutherland), but Beer would definitely get me there with bells on. Hoser's is as PC as "You Better Surrender Pronto, or we'll level Toronto!" from Canadian Bacon

Montreal's great, but the Expos and Jarry Park are long gone...
C'mon over to Vancouver sometime.
