fallout.

>> Wednesday, September 12, 2012



i am not a huge fan of the "concept album" - yes, i know there have been some very epic ones in the vaults of musical history but i'm not entirely sold on them.  (sorry, honey, "the wall" still kind of eludes me)  however, the mini and i have been watching music videos sometimes and she tends to like the ones that have a story to them - including the latest ones from marianas trench that were released in the wake of their "ever after" concept album.  and i have to say, i quite like them too.  probably because of the storybook quality to the videos, and josh ramsay's beeseeching lost-boy hero expressions, the mini makes up stories to go along with the song. 

hmmm.  whatever works, right?  so we leave you with the exploding mercedes-benz and lyrical stylings of the boys on "fallout".

monopoly. wtf.

>> Sunday, September 9, 2012


so we got the canadian version of monopoly.  and i have to admit, i am not impressed.  while it is very, very cool to see canadian locations rather than the US or British locales, this new fangled debit machine and huge land pricesmake it a little difficult to relate to.  first off, the debit machine that came with our game broke after about 3 minutes and is now probably residing in a landfill somewhere.  and now that we don't have the machine, we can't really play the game.  i've been wracking my brain trying to figure out a way to pay the game with play money instead, but in the meantime, we've been using it as a counting teaching tool for the mini.  needless to say, i miss the vintage UK version that my parents own.

but in tribute to all things canadian, i'm posting this treasury - probably the most viewed treasury i've made in a long time.  guess no one can resist us canucks.  *wink*.
