Canadian folk singer Stan Rogers had some comments about "linguistic enlightenment" in "The Woodbridge Dog Disaster" at < http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fFDgiofbQPA >.

I thought I had heard all Stan Rogers' songs? Apparently not. Now having just bought the mp3, I must say, my experience with screws4u was almost worth it.

Unfortunately the list of his songs won't be getting any longer. I've heard that his brother Garnet still performs a lot of Stan's material,and every year or two does a "southern tour" that gets all the way down to Pennsylvania. Based on a few videos I've seen and press comments, Stan's son Nathan performs some of his dad's work but is really a much different person.

Springsteen has "We Take Care of Our Own", and Ani DiFranco is resurrecting and revising "Which Side Are You On?", but they don't quite have the PG- (or R-?) rated honesty of people who work for a living, that Rogers put into compositions like "Mary Ellen Carter" or "Idiots".

Default Amazing

WoW! My dial gauge came tonight, well packed and exactly what I ordered. It seems Screws4U is indeed a very real company with very low prices... even if they don't invest a lot of overhead into customer service.

A single email would have saved an awful lot of worry, but then I never would have known of The Woodbridge Dog Disaster, to which I am delightfully listening at the moment.

As I said -- the dial gauge is exactly what I ordered, but I was more than a bit taken aback when I saw how big it is. The stem is twenty inches long. And it does not at all fit where I was planning to mount it. It scarcely fits on my workbench. But it is here, and I shall find a way to use it.


Edit: I've heard Garnet in concert a couple of times, but sadly I never heard Stan except in recordings.
