  1. Well, it was 25 years ago... but maybe you could enlighten me on why that is BS...
  2. I worked with a guy who had once done some database consulting for ICBC. (The provincial government in BC is the mandatory auto insurance 'agency' for PL and PD) He had this to say: Over 95% (don't remember exact number but it's close) of ICBC insurance payouts for the entire province are made on behalf of an identifiable group (which, either by policy or law, cannot be made public) having the following characteristics: a) are males under the age of 30 (understandable) b) live in the greater Vancouver area / lower mainland (ok.... ) c) have Asian last names
  3. I was thinking it might have been this...
  4. Empire of the Sun The Hunt for Red October Gumball Rally (guilty pleasure)
  5. lol and this was another of their one-hit-wonders....
  6. Boeing already owned de Havilland at one time but sold it to Bombardier... And now Viking (Victoria) bought the type certs for the first seven de Havilland aircraft types. Which leads me to wonder if Viking might be somehow involved in this...
  7. just another reminder to y'all blues aficionados -- Friday Night Blues Party on CKUA.com 9:00 - 12:00 midnite Mountain time.
  8. Ummm, pretty sure Five-Man Electrical Band had at least one more -- I'm a Stranger Here And The Stampeders had a string of singles (at least in Canada), though Sweet City Woman would defn be their most well-known... Forgot about Green-Eyed Lady... good song. Thanks for that.
  9. I think this qualifies... The guy was still killin' the marimba solo up to about a year ago...
  10. Regarding Mark Knopfler -- don't forget that he also did the entire soundtrack for the movie Princess Bride...
  11. Am I reading this right? I think it could be either literal or figurative...

    DOOOOHHHHHHH!!!! yup, shoulda ascertained ahead of time whether it was the turban kind or the casino kind... ambiguity can bite pretty hard...
  14. The Old Man and the Gun Robert Redford's last film. A true story of a bank robber still not retired in his 70s. Along with Danny Glover, Casey Afleck and Sissy Spacek. Not a fast-paced movie but still very good.
