For a lot of years I listened to the American Country Countdown with Bob Kingsley. In more recent years he’s had another countdown show, while Kix Brooks hosted American Country Countdown. Kingsley passed away on Thursday at the age of 80.
It’s going to be weird listening to country radio and not expecting to hear his voice on the weekend.
That movie about the incapable political leadership from the future is actually already here, it won’t take 500 more years.
Ontario has their Harper-style Fake News now too https://twitter.com/OntarioNew…/status/1026965194243751936

A host of the Ford videos, Lyndsey Vanstone, presents as a news reporter or anchor, and the Tweet says:
Buck-a-Beer is returning to Ontario! Remember the days of $1.00 beer in Ontario? Premier Ford does, and that’s why brewers across the province are being encouraged to take the ‘Buck-a-Beer Challenge.’
These are the depressingly stupid headlines from Canadian leadership, as reported by the very real news, National Observer:
Here are some other ideas for stupid political announcements:
- ‘Feds to offer a Jock At Every Party’
- ‘Trump to bring lead back to paint and gasoline so they work better’
Make Paint Taste Great Again
- ‘The Trudeau Liberals have conceded the 2019 election to the Scheer Conservatives, stating that Scheer does a much better job of gutting environmental policies, and keeping Bay St. happy, and they want to put Bay St.’s wellbeing over their partisan politics.’
- Ontario schools to replace music class with reruns of 1990s Much Music videos
Randy Rainbow updated this song, and it’s genius. Really.
Beep, Beep, I’m a Sheep.
“Beep, beep, I’m a sheep,” are the prominent lyrics for Regina resident Todd Bryanton’s — also known on YouTube as LilDeuceDeuce — newest composition. It has become a viral hit online.
Released on April Fools’ Day, the ear worm is no joke, reaching five million views and climbing, as of Sunday.
I met Todd briefly 9 years ago at his awesome wedding, and have seen his family around Regina a few times since. I’m glad he’s got a hit on his hands.
For the longest time, historians thought they knew Edison was the first to record the human voice. Then a team of researchers realized there were earlier recordings that were made by a Frenchman without any expectation that they could be converted back into sound. Our advanced scanning and computer equipment was able to do it with some inventive solutions, in 2008.

There are many other great lines in this, including confirmation that Krypton isn’t a planet.
