Since music is a big part of my life, I'm starting a new little feature called Song of the Week. It's my feeble attempt at changing the cultural landscape of the universe - one awesome song at a time. To kick things off, I give you Wall of Voodoo performing "Call of the West." I've played this song many times and I still notice something new with each listen. There's so much to love: the tin can percussion, Marc Moreland's mind-blowing guitar playing, and Stan Ridgway's matter-of-fact vocal delivery. Enjoy this twangy road trip of a song.
I'm a slightly off-beat Toronto-area teacher who enjoys writing and photography. I come from a family of collectors and now I'm dragging my own family around to yard sales. It's just a bit of fun. Enjoy the scenes.
My husband and I stock a booth rammed to the rafters with vintage treasures at Valley Antiques in charming Dundas, Ontario. It's a few kilometers west of Hamilton. Come visit this best kept secret in Southern Ontario and swing by Valley Antiques. There are over 50 vendors selling cool and beautiful things and you won't be paying Toronto prices (speaking as a former Hogtown gal).
