This week’s instalment of Music Monday is Courage by The Tragically Hip from their 1993 album, Fully Completely. The Sarah Polley version is from 1997’s [The Sweet Hereafter](http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120255/.
I once mentioned that this blog is for complaining. Here’s today’s complaint.
I see you waiting for the bus. You get on the bus and then you have to search through your bag for your wallet and then extract your bus pass or ticket or change. What the hell were you waiting for? Why not take some time while you’re waiting for the bus to search through your junk for the thing you need to get on the bus? I get it if you had to run for the bus, and sometimes I see that you’re checking your pockets because the thing you need is not where it ought to be. But there are way too many instances where you seem content to hold up the queue rather than prepare just a little bit. Come on!
My thanks to a good friend for turning me onto Scott Richmond and sharing this cover with me. I’m not suggesting that I’m currently crazy in love, please don’t make that conclusion.
Happy 2016, everybody! 2015 is past and was quite a year for all of us, I think. I hope it was fulfilling for all of you. I’m not going to go into all the things that I did, felt, experienced, or that otherwise were part of my life, I’ll just say that I think 2015 was a good year and I hope to build on it to make 2016 equally good or better.
I’ll leave you with this video of how I spent New Year’s Eve. Thanks to The Worst Pop Band Ever for the soundtrack.
