Jolie Holland...

http://www.anti.com/artists/jolie-holland/

...wrote this on her Facebook page (with this photo):

"They found Jack Kerouac's first, lost book. And the editor decided that some of my lyrics ought to be the epigraph. Yeah, No. I'm stunned, and don't know how to feel about it. It's an incredible honor."

It's from the about-to-be-publish first / lost novel from Jack Kerouac, "The Haunted Life."

It's about time Jolie Holland got this level of recognition.  Her music should be celebrated like Bob Dylan was when he first showed up.  At least she is in my house.

So this happened. A smoked meat sandwich. For breakfast. Yeah. Sure. Why not?

And now I've become one of those people who posts photos of food.

To be completely hip, a selfie of you eating the food is the shot.

It's worth reading the blurb on Open Culture before watching the video.

Love is a such a heavy load.

I suppose everyone alive 50 years ago today remembers where they were when they heard the news that C.S. Lewis and Aldous Huxley died, right?

An interview with my special lady friend, Jenny Higgins (and Michael Crummey), holding her own with one of the biggest brains in Canada, the CBC's Michael Enright. Way to go, Jenny.  You knocked that one out of the park.

(The interview also airs tomorrow on CBC Radio 1.)

I'm at work and can't test this out on a real bottle of beer. Anyone want to try it and tell me if it works?  (16 second video. No sound required.)

Apparently all you need are warm hands.

Close call with a moose -- at the 1:40 mark if the video doesn't start there.

Trapped moose running past us

+Patsy Fondon yes, because French canadians clearly all speak English with a French accent, just like English canadians speak French or English with a British accent, right?

Although I enjoyed the cartoon-like style of Wes Anderson's "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou," the movie didn't really work for me when I first saw it in 2004 because it seemed to be more style than substance. Over the years it's grown to become possibly my favourite Wes Anderson movie, funny, ridiculous and packing an emotional punch. It took almost ten years to sink in, but it was worth it.
