Life’s inevitable ironies, twists and turns

I haven’t blogged for quite some time. The longer I’m away from blogging, the harder it is to get back in because I feel a need to adequately write about all the events that transpired in the interim, those which kept me from writing. It’s such a daunting task I put it off until I break down and usually dispense with the entire gap in once sentence:

I’m a daddy, I have baby daughter now.

Enough said.

Now that I’m a parent, I find myself marvelling at the twists and turns my life has taken to get me to this point. The point where I find myself looking into the 7-week old eyes of a newborn infant who flashes that dazzling smile of hers which simply floors me and thinking: there’s a little baby soul in there, and that soul needs her daddy, and that’s me.

Speaking of life’s ironies and twists, I choose today to resume blogging because Bob Rae is expected to announce his candidacy for the federal liberal party. The man led the socialist NDP to a one-term government in Ontario which took the province from a surplus to about a 27 billion dollar deficit in 5 quick years wants to run the surplus running, federal debt-reducing libs. Man that’s weird.

The other weird thing is when Rae was premier he wrote a little song called “We’re in the Same Boat Now”, a joyful ditty about multi-racial harmony, and submitted it to Sony Music for publication and was laughed at publicly.

Always the opportunist, I jumped on the situation and the heavy-metal band I was in at the time, Landslide, recorded a power-punk version of that song and released it to the media for a very fun, albeit short-lived, moment in the sun for our band. (We predictably distingrated shortly after that).

I still have 7″ singles of our rendition of Bob Rae’s song, and I recently managed to snag the landslide.ca domain name, so I think I will quickly throw a website up there and put the old Rae ditty and the other Landslide tunes up for posterity.

    I’d love to get a copy of that song.
