That's pretty intense. The guy behind the camera laughs, but that's some serious danger.

Passenger is one of the biggest indie acts in the world right now, and he got there by busking on street corners from #Dublin to #Sydney

On a recent stop in ‪#‎Vancouver‬, we asked him for his tips for buskers. (Hint: find a good printer.)

Do you busk? Learn from one of the most successful buskers of all time right here: http://bit.ly/167wfR8 #busking   #video   #watchnow

SPACE JAM! +Chris Hadfield records a song in space for +CBC Music:
 
There have been a lot of songs written about space, but how many songs have actually been written in space?

Watch the vide as astronaut +Chris Hadfield from aboard the International Space Station, performs "I.S.S. (Is Somebody Singing)" with Ed Robertson, the rest of the Barenaked Ladies and the Wexford Gleeks from Wexford Collegiate School for the Arts, who were all at the CBC studios in Toronto.  +NASA +Canadian Space Agency

I heard this album once through. Very 80s pop/trying to break out of the indie scene and go BIG.
