Michelle's MP3 Request

Spirit of the West's Home For A Rest and the Violent Femmes' Blister in the Sun? I'd say I'm doing something right...

Good on you, Mike! Hopefully the boy follows in the right footsteps too.

My oldest (girl) loves rap, and my younger lad loves classic rock. So at least I'm batting .500!

My 3 year old daughter keeps only wanting to hear Closing Time by Leonard Cohen so were off to a good start!

Yup. These are tame, but very good examples, of the influence we have as parents.

My granddaughter is 2 1/2 months old, and it's amazing to see the things she is "aware of" already.

Toronto Mike Verified as the defacto Toronto Mike

This entry has an ad that seems out of date to me.

Someone should tell Corus.

My niece showed up at the cottage with a Billy Idol ripped tee and I was so proud... until she told me that she only likes the 'later' Billy Idol (circa Cyberpunk).
I tried to show her some of the GenX stuff (which is by far my favourite songs from him) but she wasn't interested.
I even showed her some early Billy Idol footage from TOTP and other shows from the UK (via youtube) and no interest.
Hell, I'm straight, but that guy oozed sexuality in 1978/9.

Blister in the sun, eh? Has she asked any awkward questions about the lyrics?
