I thought a woman sang this song, until I watched the video and a live video. This band is from Portlamd, Oregon, which is Due South from Vancouver. The city’s unofficial motto is: Keep Portland Weird.

Here’s the ZHU dance Remix:

This is Juice by a Canadian duo  from Montreal called Chromeo. One is a Jew, the other an Arab. In Canada, we can laugh at our differences and similarities, which in this song is a penchant for high heels (their new album is called Head Over Heels):

And one more Canadian, still a kid, Scott Hellman:

21 million people (and counting) have seen Angel’s store window in 48 hours

Jeongyeon, lead singer of the Korean pop group Twice, looking in the window of Angel. From the music video “Likey,” which was released Monday and already has more than 21 million hits.

It’s not every day that you get 21 million people looking at your store window in 48 hours. But thanks to a new music video by the nine-woman South Korean K-pop group Twice, which posted the video for Likey on YouTube at 6 p.m. on Monday, Angel has received amazing worldwide exposure that is growing by the minute.

The camera crew also filmed inside our store, shooting Twice lead singer Jeongyeon looking inside Angel while singing: “There are so many pretty things to wear.”

The video was shot entirely in Vancouver and its suburbs, featuring the Gastown Steam Clock, the Europe Hotel in Maple Tree Square (Angel is located on the corner of the square), some of the other local Gastown shops, a back alley in Gastown, Stanley Park, the White Rock pier, a Steveston gas station and some residential streets:

The Desigual man collection for Fall-Winter 2017  is a bit darker than the summer 2017 line, with bold colour knit sweaters and surrealist imagery on T-shirts, shirts and sweatshirts.

There are also some solid-colour men’s jackets for fall, including a brown one that you’d swear was leather but is actually vegan leather, which has the advantage of being rainproof – perfect for Vancouver weather. And there are some men’s coats with knitted sleeves for fall, which look like you’re wearing a sweater under a vest-jacket. But the sleeves can zip off on one jacket, transforming into a vest.

Angel’s entire Desigual collection for Fall 2017 – for men, women and kids – is on sale at 20% off for a limited time.

Here’s what Angel has in stock for men so far, with more new arrivals expected soon:

Last year, Downie revealed he was diagnosed with glioblastoma, an incurable form of brain cancer. He and the Hip did a final national tour last year.

Today’s music is a few of the best songs by Tom Petty, 66, who died earlier this week (Revised Oct. 11, 2017, to become my personal Top 10 by Mr. Petty):

“Think of me what you will, I’ve gotta a little space to fill,” Tom sang here:

Tom dazzled MTV with his video for Don’t Come Around Here

Tom Petty joined the supergroup The Traveling Wilburys by accident — George Harrison planned to record a song at Bob Dylan‘s house with Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison and Dylan, but had left his guitar at Petty’s house. He asked Petty to join the session when George went to get the guitar. They had so much fun doing one song, Handle With Care, they decided to make a whole record, which was recorded in the kitchen of the home of Dave Stewart (of the Eurythmics) over a 10-day session in May 1988. Orbison died in December of that year, which is the reason his guitar is on a chair in the video for End of the Line:

The night Tom Petty died, within minutes of taking the stage, Coldplay and former R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck decided to play this tribute to Mr. Petty (unrehearsed?) in Portland, Ore:

Tom, Prince, Jeff Lynne, Steve Winwood, George Harrison’s son Dhani & others play While My Guitar Gently Weeps:

Goodbye Summer. Hello sweater weather.

Fall-Winter 2017 collection

What seemed like the endless summer finally came to an end a week ago. Starting mid June, the rain stopped and we had an unusually hot, dry summer. No rain for two months. Fun in the sun. We wore light summer clothes all summer. But now:

Goodbye sleeveless tops, shorts and sandals that we wore every day. Even at night.

Goodbye fresh local summer berries and cherries.

Goodbye swims in lakes heated by the hot summer sun.

Goodbye to cruising with the top down on the convertible, listening to this song.

Angel has dozens of Desigual sweaters & scarves, including those below from the Fall 2017 collection.

And hello sweaters and warmer jackets, which we’ve been selling at Angel all week, since it turned cooler. Soon, the leaves will begin to fall and we’ll dig out our rainboots, gloves, winter hats. But not yet. The sun is out today and will continue through the weekend. You might not want to swim, but find a spot out of the wind and enjoy the last of the late-summer rays.

Here are a few Desigual sweaters, coats & scarves to keep you warm (the Desigual Fall-Winter 2017 collection is on sale @ 10% off, with up to 50% off Desigual from previous seasons):

Today’s music is a song from 2013, Sweater Weather, by The Neighbourhood:

Ain’t No Sunshine, a classic live 1972 performance by Bill Withers:

And lastly, here’s a new bittersweet video for the song Traveling Light by the late, great Canadian poet & troubadour, Leonard Cohen, who died almost a year ago:

To mark the anniversary of his passing, there will be a memorial concert in his native Montreal on Nov. 6, 2017, called Tower of Song.

The musical guests will include: Elvis Costello, Lana Del Rey, Feist, Philip Glass, k.d. lang, Damien Rice, Sting, Patrick Watson, Wesley Schultz & Jeremiah Fraites from The Lumineers, Leonard’s son Adam Cohen, and the Ballets Jazz De Montreal.

Additional artists, as well as actors paying homage through spoken word performances, will be announced soon. (Update Oct. 26: Vancouver actor Seth Rogen, Quebec chanteuse-songwriter Coeur de Pirate and American rocker Courtney Love have been added to the tribute concert.)

His son Adam recalls: “My father left me with a list of instructions before he passed: ‘Put me in a pine box next to my mother and father. Have a small memorial for close friends and family in Los Angeles…and if you want a public event do it in Montreal.’ I see this concert as a fulfillment of my duties to my father that we gather in Montreal to ring the bells that still can ring.”

The event will benefit the Canada Council for the Arts, the Council of Arts and Letters of Quebec, and the Montreal Arts Council.

Tower of Song will mark the first anniversary of Leonard’s passing and commence a week of celebrations honouring Cohen in Montreal. As previously announced, the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal’s new exhibit, “Leonard Cohen: Une brèche en toute chose / A Crack in Everything,” will open to the public November 9. The exhibit was approved by the late songwriter before his passing and will celebrate Cohen’s life and work. Select media and top tier Tower of Song ticket holders will be invited to a preview of the exhibit on November 7.

Concert tickets go on sale Saturday Sept. 23 at noon, Eastern Standard Time, @ EVENKO.CA AND 1-855-310-2525

Before Cohen died, he did an interview with David Remnick, editor of The New Yorker. A podcast of Mr. Cohen’s final interview — hear Leonard talk about his impending death — is here. Remnick’s full New Yorker piece, with insightful comments from Bob Dylan about Cohen’s “genius” as a songwriter, is here.

Today’s video is the latest theme from Spiderman:

Tarzan wasn’t a ladies man…Clark Kent, now there was a real gent,” sang Canadian band Crash Test Dummies in Superman’s Song, their 1991 hit:

Superman, now 77, was co-created by Canadian artist Joseph Shuster, who was born in Toronto and was the cousin of Wayne Shuster, of the Canadian comedy duo Wayne and Shuster. Joseph Shuster passed away in 1992 at the age of 78. He once said that Metropolis was modelled on Toronto and the Daily Planet was inspired by the newspaper Shuster delivered as a kid — The Toronto Star….Vancouver actor Ryan Reynolds is filming Deadpool 2 in Vancouver. Here’s a song from the first Deadpool by Wham!, featuring the late George Michael; the video has Deadpool playing sax:
