Remembering Kieslowski

You make films to give people something, to transport them somewhere else, and it doesn’t matter if you transport them to a world of intuition or a world of intellect.”  Krzysztof Kie?lowski

The Tragically Hip & Canadian Stories

When I introduced my 6 year olds to the music of The Tragically Hip, it was the stories that was my focus in the telling of their story. I really wanted my children to appreciate their music but I knew that music is a personal taste.

Jack Johnson at Deer Lake

A few weeks back my children took out a CD from the library featuring Jack Johnson’ songs from the Curious George movie. We haven’t seen the movie but we enjoy the books and have seen the cartoon shows. Jack’s voice and composition has a wonderful early 70s, chilled, folksy vibe that makes you feel like you are tripping along in the sunshine on a beautiful summer day. I’m not a music critic so I’m afraid that’s my best attempt at describing how lovely his music is.

Music Tips By Kids’ CBC Star Will Stroet

“There are a lot of kids’ musicians in this country, but I really feel like Will’s music stands out. As a former teacher, he really understands kids, so the music isn’t condescending but rather respectful, empowering, educational and celebratory.” (Kim Wilson, Head of children’s programming, Kids’ CBC)
