This evening, a few links. I haven't done one of these in a while, and I think there's some good stuff here.
First of all, Jenn Deon put the link up for this on Facebook. A new Ron Hynes song always makes me happy. Funny, I never had much time for Ron when I was younger. Probably hearing Sonny's Dream too many times and thinking that was it for him. Goes to show what I know.
This is a fun little song, with a touch of heartbreak in there, about the card game 120s. And perhaps just a little bit more. I can't wait the new album and hopefully it won't be too long a wait.
Next, we've had our first entry into the "Design a Townie Bastard" t-shirt contest from Clare. I don't think this is going to be the winner, and I confess to having a mild urge to "greet" him at the airport when he swings through here in a few week's time. Still, for your consideration...
Third, there is a movement to make William Shatner the next Governor General. I'm kind of for it, if for no other reason then people will officially no longer take the position the slightest seriously and will probably be a major step in eliminating the position.
So yeah, Shat for GG. It's even a good slogan. Sign me up for it.
Finally, courtesy of Seamus, a link to a graph explaining how trustworthy a guy is depending on his facial hair. I'm pleased to note that I have the third most trustworthy type. I've considered growing a full beard, but I don't want to think about how much gray there would be in it.
