Comment Pot Pourri


I'm going to try something new this afternoon.  Here are recent comments left on this site you may have missed.  All of these comments were left within the past week.

I had to play this song for my grade 6 class. We were going to watch a baseball game as a school and no one in my class even heard this song before. Thanks for giving my class the opportunity to hear this song.

Okay, why haven't I found your page sooner. Saw Saint Ralph pre-distribution at the Seattle Film Festival and have been trying to find a copy of the movie version of song ever since. If you are still sending these, I would much appreciate a copy.

This was weird reading all of these frustrated people's stories regarding Prima. What they say is true. I bought a Prima 30" TV in Jan 2005 for $ 1500.00 from MDG (by the way MDG Computers was useless), since then I have recieved 2 new replacements from Prima and now I am looking for a third replacment in just over 3 years. I have placed 100's of calls into them and to get these results but expect to have to do the same again to get yet another TV replacement, but I dare them not to do so. Its really not about the money any more. I believe the former Employees story above spells the truth about this company. The senior management really doesn't care about the customer.

I think there were 52-54 episodes. I went to the TVO website and found descriptions of all the episodes and then posted it on Matthew Broszkowski's website forum. I'm also the one that provided him with all the videos :).
On a side note... The show "You can do it" lyrics.
Did you ever dream about the stanley cup and scored the winning goal? You got a 100 hugs from all those lugs while your parents cheered at home. You can do it, yes, yes, Yes your friends can do it. and you can to.
or something like that.

I was watching the last season of Gilmore Girls the other night and they made reference to Tokyo Police Club. Here is the script:
ZACK: I was in the frozen foods aisle when I get this call from Graham. You remember Graham.
LANE: From Vapor Rub? Yeah. We saw them play last year at the Mercury Lounge.
ZACK: Yeah, well, great news... They need a new guitarist, and they called me... They're going on a two-month tour this summer, and they want me to join them... and they're totally cool with you and the boys coming along... Just wait. When we're in Philly and D.C., we're going to be opening for Tokyo Police Club.
Just cause I know you would want to know that.......ha,ha.

I've been listening to Darryl for 28 years now I'm sure, and have always had a desire to see what he sees. I was wondering if there's any possibility that I could co-pilot one of his flights over the GTA, to see how he does what he does so well?

I just had this verse pop into my head out of the blue today. I hadn't thought of it in over 25 years, and even when I was young I didn't know where it originated. I googled it and found this article, and I'm glad you told of the origins. You've solved a mystery for me.
BTW, one other verse I remember goes something like this: My name is Cindy, I found a penny, I found a penny all shiny and new. I'm gonna buy me all sorts of candy, that's what I'm gonna do.

Mike, you make Dr. Basrur sound like Winston Churchill during the blitz.
Yeah, she was a calming voice only for people who were completely freaked by the Toronto Sun's pictures of women in facemasks in Beijing.
SARS was and remains an event in Toronto history as overhyped and played by the politicians as the Mississauga Train derailment of 1979.
RIP Dr. Basrur but get a freaking grip on how she calmed us during a "crisis" that existed only in less than one percent of the GTA demographic.
