Only a Northern Song

Hockey blog in the winter, panfandom in the summer, starving artist year round.

Apparently this blog has become all Canadiana crap tonight and I don’t know why. But I’ll close out the night by telling all of you that “Bon Cop Bad Cop” is an excellent amusing movie that I can never recommend enough to other people.

This clip from the beginning not only pretty much summarizes the entire movie, but does a good job of presenting the overall theme of the film which essentially pokes fun at English-French tensions and relationships in Canada.

Also, the plot is basically about how an Ontario cop and a Quebec cop have to work together to stop a plot to kill the NHL commissioner by a murderous Canadian disgruntled with how the league has “destroyed hockey” by moving Canadian franchises to non-traditional southern markets.

…Yeah. You heard me.

A lot of people of my generation remember the Heritage Minutes as corny but charming little snippets to teach bits of Canadian history in between commercial breaks on television.

But not a lot of people remember that this was one of them.

Granted, you can see why the Louis Riel Heritage Minute did not get a lot of air time, considering these clips were often inserted on stations geared towards children such as YTV. And yet, probably one of the more poignant and impactful minutes put out by Historica.

Hey, guys, so Kai (Lon’qu) and myself spent the better part of our weekend being dorks working on support convos, so you really should give it a listen! And, you know, share if you like!




You can always spot which Tumblr users migrated over here from LiveJournal because we consistently call the Read More button ‘the cut’.

Tumblr won’t load my drop down tag menu on my mobile browser anymore.

So now what am I supposed to do on my lunch?

Stare at this jigsaw puzzle I guess.

liking the look of that new stage select menu

final smash

The NHL suspending Voynov indefinitely after being charged with domestic violence is already better than how they handled Varlamov.

HOWEVER, I will reserve judgment and/or praise for this league once all is said and done.
