- Grandma's Hands - Bill Withers
- Boneyard Tree - The Watchmen
- Snowsuit Sound - Sloan
- Been A Son - Nirvana
- America - Simon & Garfunkel
- Half - Soundgarden
- W Balls - Snoop Doggy Dogg
- Long Time Running - The Tragically Hip
On Sunday I'm married ten years. Yep, ten years. I still feel pretty young to be celebrating my tin anniversary, but it's true. Taryn and I were wed on January 15, 1996.
That afternoon, we shot down to Old City Hall in Toronto and got married. We told our loved ones about it after the fact, so for a while we flirted with the idea of having a little get together for close friends and family to help us celebrate our tenth. It's not really our style, so we quickly nixed the idea, but had we gone through with it The Tragically Hip's "Long Time Running" would have been our song.
It's been a long, long, long time running. It's well worth the wait.
