Song of the Day: The Stampeders – Sweet City Woman

Song of the Day: The Stampeders – Sweet City Woman “She feeds me love and tenderness and macaroons” — find me a sweeter sentiment than that. A Calgary classic for those of us with uncomfortably wholesome tendencies. (Source:

Song of the Day: Finch – Unspoken is the Word

Song of the Day: Pogo – Jaaam (The Fresh Prince Remix)

Jaaam (The Fresh Prince Remix) (by Pogo) Pogo’s remixes of movies and TV series are consistently wonderful, in a feel-good pop-culture-savvy Lemon Jelly sort of way. I would recommend going through his full catalogue if you have a few minutes to spare. (Source:

Twisted and Amazing Short of the Day: The Pig Farmer

The Pig Farmer (by Nick Cross) A twisted but utterly engrossing Canadian animated short. Nick’s about 10 minutes into making a feature. It might take a few years before it comes to fruition, but it’s worth getting excited for. (Source:
