    not to knock our national anthem, but i sorta wish we had a better song to sing on occasions like this. actually scratch that, not “better”, but maybe less formal, more upbeat. is that unpatriotic? ah well. looks wicked though. oh to be back in the homeland now!

    Canada made a great national anthem choice, the US’s national anthem sadly does not lend itself to happy sing-a-longs 🙁 jealous

  • Vancouver in a week, I can’t wait!
