Every once in a while, I seem to get an itch for some tunes that hail from the Great White North. Bands that you’d rarely, if ever, hear on US airwaves (to say nothing on Top 40 radio), but that you’d used to hear on Canadian airwaves when we used to have more then six “Hot” tunes and country to choose from when spinning the dail in the car.

As you can probably gather from the title, it’s been a while since I’ve done Fantasy Baseball. In fact, the last time was eight years ago with this guy (who has an awesome last name) was still in the big leagues.

So fired in Desperado, that Robert Rodriguez flick back when Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek weren’t the household names that they would become by the beginning of the new millennium. One of the favourite spots in the movie (outside of the sex scene of course :p ) was at the end when they drive off into the sunset, with this tune playing away.
Throughout the existence of this blog, in its many incarnations and theme adjustments, one of the beefs that I’ve had was trying to find a theme that I actually liked. Most were extremely basic, and would break of look pretty clunky when you try to add any additional modules, and not being a design master, creating something that I’d be happy with myself was a bit of a long shot.
