It’s Good To Know I Can Still Count On Jeeves

Unknown

It’s comforting to know that in an unpredictable world, Jeeves is still there for us.

I’ve been Googling my new album to chart radio airplay and on a lark I though I would use the ancient search engine, Ask Jeeves. (it’s now Ask.com apparently) 

And lo and behold, Jeeves told me the CBC North has been spinning some tunes!

Boo Google!

Yay Jeeves!

If only he were able to refill my coffee cup…

Long Live the CBC! Random radio playlists featuring my new songs.

It always make me happy when I see that one of my little songs has been played on the CBC.

This week it was CBC North.

The Mighty Chibi Deluxe!

Before I had my first “real” motorcycle, I had a cute little 60 cc mini bike called a Chibi Deluxe.

I had so much fun on that little thing zipping around the farm roads near my grandparents place in Ladner, BC.

I think I paid $75 for it.

I remember the second gear being busted so you needed to really rev it in first, then pop er’ down into 3rd and it would build slowly from there to a wobbly top speed of about 35 mph. That seemed plenty fast at the time.

Looking online, it seems that a lot of people have fond memories of these little machines that were made in the early 70’s. If you’ve got an extra $600 lying around you can find them on eBay!

My First Motorcycle

She was a beaut!

A 1976 Yamaha DT 100 I think. I bought it in 1986 off of my friend Dave. It ran great!

The gas mileage was ridiculous and the feeling of freedom at that age? Amazing!

In those days you could get a licence by driving around a few pylons and insurance was less than $100 a year.

I moved on to a road bike after that but after a few close calls, due to no fault of my own, I put an end to my Fonzie days at age 19.

If I ever end up out in the country it would be fun to have a trail bike to putter around on.

Spotify

I’m still on the 30 day free trial period and leaning towards paying the 10 dollars a month after that. All the music of the world at your fingertips for the cost of a couple of cappuccinos?

It is pretty amazing but it bothers me how little the artists get paid. At least they (me) are getting something!

Yesterday I listened to a lot of Pete Seeger and of course clean up time with the kids featured “Get Lucky”, the extended mix by Daft Punk. Usually I just dial-up a genre and try to discover something new.

Lots of African High-Life was listened to the day before.

There’s a funny little website called Forgorify.

It seeks to give all the songs on Spotify that have never had even a single play at least one!

Currently listing to “Life In The Finland Woods” by Calum MacLean – on the album “Scottish Accordion Hits Volume 2”………Just doing my part to make the world a happier place….

Pop The Cork!

My album is #19 at Ryerson in Toronto!

Meeting Jay Z and Beyoncé for lunch! Things are looking up!
