O Canada...

Saturday, July 17, 2010


Hello all.

Does anyone know anything about marriage between a Canadian citizen and one from Europe?  I am trying to research it but don't know the first thing to do. 
My boifriend and I have been together for 3 1/2 years and are talking marriage but he's from Sweden and I'm from Canada.  He hopes to emigrate here but the rules for emigrating to Canada are so strict.  We Will eventually get married it's just a matter of when. 

If anyone has any knowledge about such issues I would greatly appreciate your comments.

8:48PM - Visiting Vancouver

OMG! I'm so excited about this, I can barely contain myself.

At the end of the month, I'm visiting Canada, or as I affectionately refer to it as Canadia, The Magical Land of Awesome. I've wanted to visit Canada since I've been a child but I've never had the opportunity (pecuniary or otherwise) to travel. Sadly I've never even been out of the country.

Until now.

I've saved my pennies and in a few short weeks I'm headed to Vancouver, BC as a birthday gift to me for turning the big.................we won't mention that. ;D

I've got my passport, got my tickets. If anyone reading this has any suggestions regarding hotels, places to visit (LGBT district?), monuments to check out, anything, please bring forth your suggestions. I'm still compiling an itinerary and I'm open to ideas/suggestions.

And what is the transportation like? Do I need to rent a car or can I get by using the public transportation? Okay I apologize for the frazzled post. I'm just so excited, I can barely contain myself.

Thanking you guys in advance.

7:56AM - Voting ABC is as easy as 1-2-3

Here are some basic ABC guidelines that will work wonders if we're all on the same page:

1. If you live in a riding that went Liberal, NDP or Bloc in the last election, vote for that party.
2. If you live in a riding that elected a Conservative, vote for the party that came second.
3. Vote for Elizabeth May if you live in her riding.

Now get your family and 10 friends to do the same. Let's vote out the Regressive Conservatives!

10:58AM - New to community

Hi!  I absolutely love Canada and just went to Quebec last year for my Honeymoon.  (pictures above from Quebec)  We rented a car and drove many hours north one day through the national forest to a town that I can't remember the name of!  I could look it up on a map.  We refer to the town as "Chickapee" as an inside joke.  Can't wait to go back one day to Quebec City!  Maybe for our 20-year...

I currently reside in Pennsylvania and we plan to move to Oregon next year.  I'm looking forward to visiting again Vancouver and Victoria.  I went once with my family when we went on a vacation to Seattle and those two Canadian cities.  

Check out my other daily drawings if you get a chance and let me know what you think.

3:33PM - Canadian Music

Hello fellow Canadian musicians and music lovers,

Just wanted to give you a little update on what's going on in the world of Canadian music, especially here at Aquarius Records. In case you don't know, we are Canada's biggest independent record company (visit http://www.aquariusrecords.com for more), part of the Donald K. Donald Entertainment Group of Labels, which also includes Last Gang Records, Tacca Musique and Indica Records (visit http://www.dkd.com for more).

  • One artist that has started to have quite a little buzz about him, especially online, is Vancouver singer-songwriter Jeremy Fisher. If the name sounds familiar, it's probably because the homemade video for the 1st single, "Cigarette", from his recently released album, Goodbye Blue Monday, has had over 1 million views on the internet, thanks to being featured on the front page of the very popular YouTube (among many other sites)! He also made 2 other homemade videos for tracks off this album, entitled "Jolene" and "Scar That Never Heals", and is just about to complete a cross-Canada tour with fellow Canadian Tomi Swick.

    His album is in stores right now and you can find everything you want to know about him here:

  • Jeremy Fisher's Official Site
  • Jeremy Fisher's MySpace
  • Jeremy Fisher on YouTube (where you can find all the videos mentioned!)

  • We also released the debut album, We Have an Emergency, from The Operation M.D., a garage rock duo featuring none other than Cone McCaslin (also known as Sum 41's bassist) as Dr. Dynamite, doing vocals, bass and keyboards and Todd Morse (guitarist for Juliette & The Licks and H2O) as Dr. Rocco, doing vocals, guitars and keyboards. The hilarious video for the 1st single, "Sayonara", was directed by none other than Sum 41 drummer Steve Jocz and you can check it out below!

  • The Operation M.D.'s MySpace
  • The Operation M.D. on YouTube

    As for upcoming projects?

  • Sum 41's long-awaited 4th album, entitled Underclass Hero, will be released July 24th, 2007! The 1st single, as well as opening track, is "Underclass Hero", and will hit radio airwaves and be available for digital purchasing on May 15th. But you won't have to wait that long for a taste of the new album, because Sum 41 are unveiling a tune called "March of the Dogs" online on the first week of May on iTunes Canada!

  • Sum 41's Official Site
  • Sum 41's MySpace
  • Sum 41 on YouTube

  • And in the fall, you can look forward to the debut album by new hard rock group, Brown Brigade called, In the Mouth of Badd(d)ness - Brown Brigade, featuring Dave Brownsound Baksh (ex-Sum 41 guitarist) on vocals with Vaughn Lal on bass, recruited Johnny No Triggers (from Suckershot) on drums, Craig Pattison on guitar and Cess Rock (MC) to finish the job. With collective influences that include funk, old school hip-hop, metal and rock, Brown Brigade’s special blend is sure to be something you've never quite heard before.

  • Brown Brigade's Official Site
  • Brown Brigade's MySpace

    Lots of music to explore and much more to look forward to this year - if you enjoy these types of updates, don't be afraid to let us know and don't forget to join us on the Aquarius MySpace for more up-to-the-moment news!

    And be sure to check out the brand new DKD store for online merchandise and more here: http://www.dkdtunes.com.

    I know that there's a large portion of the local population that is freaking out with excitement about how the Vancouver Canucks are in the playoffs. However, hockey's not really my thing. I like to watch a game now and then as much as the next person, but I'm not making large Stanley Cup look-a-likes out of aluminum foil any time soon.

    More important news, and an issue I CAN'T WAIT to see the people on Royal Canadian Air Farce spoof upon, is that yes, you'll have to click here to find out!Collapse )

    5:36PM - Visiting Toronto, looking for something to do

    I'll be going to a conference in Toronto from the 22nd to 25th, and I have some time to kill on the 22nd and I'm looking to entertain myself for a couple hours in the afternoon/evening. I'm 18, and the drinking age there is 19, right? I was hoping I could get some ideas about relatively inexpensive touristy things to do, maybe good shopping malls, and places to eat.

    8:11PM - Serious question. Please help!

    Hi there fellow Canadian-lovers,
    I have a serious question to ask of you all. I am looking for a duffle bag that can be used as carry-on luggage on the plane (so it must conform to the airlines' approved dimensions) with either the Canadian flag or another Canadian logo on it. Oh, and it can't be a one with wheels.
    I'm from Australia, and when I was in Vancouver over 10 years ago, I bought a lovely little duffle bag from a gift shop at the airport. It has lots of storage space, and a big Canadian flag on it which I've always felt happy to show off whenever I've travelled with it. However, it's getting old and frayed now, and it's time to retire it, but I want to replace it with something similar. Looking on google today, I found a picture of an Air Canada one that would be perfect, but when I followed the link to the page of the store selling it, it's not on the website anywhere.
    So does anyone have any ideas where to find a replacement??

    Current mood: hopeful
