I was so excited about this new title that as I signed in, I typed canadian instead of billy's. True story. :lol:

It's going to be hard keeping "My Girlfriend, Who Lives In Canada" (from Avenue Q) out of my head . . . (Sorry if I've just put it in yours.) Time to get creative!

I'm glad that I'm not a trivia expert that knows everything. It's too competitive these days. :D

Luckily, the subject is broad enough for multiple interpretations; it just means we'll have to work that much harder. ;)

I may or may not be coming down with the flu, but after rewatching lost in translation earlier today, i might write a shoegazey type tune. also, i'm feeling a need to base mine off of B.C. Anyone else got a favorite province?

No. Damn - I will never get this finished

I once knew a girl in Saskatchewan
Who would email me photos of her snatch for fun...



Oh yeah. Grammy - here I come

I was going to ask just how bawdy/dirty songs around here could get, but upon reading Caravan Rays plans, I think anything I come up with concerning illicit affairs with attractive moose and the softness of beaver pelts will not be noticed at all...*waves* Hi Ray!

I believe there have been multiple entries regarding pooping in shoes. I'm sure you'll be fine. :)

So what I'm going to do is keep telling you about this AMAZING song I've written, recorded and how it's going to blow your minds, then on the day, say it couldn't show up 'cos it couldn't get away from work.

Or I'm just going to belch out a whole bunch of offensive Canadian stereotypes to a badly played ukulele backing.

One of the two.
