DAN KIM | POP DANTHOLOGY 2014
I’m not much of a pop song aficionado, but I have my share of guilty pleasure pop songs as my favourite earwigs. This year…well, this year I can’t really say I liked that many songs but I really haven’t been paying attention. Good thing, this DJ compiled snippets of all the good ones and made an awesome mashup.
Oh yes, he’s also from the same hometown as me. Random, yes.
JOYEUX ANNIVERSAIRE POUR MOI
Yes, it’s my birthday…and I’m going to party like it’s my birthday (to quote 50 Cent). My favourite birthday thing to do is have breakfast (pancakes, jack daniel’s maple syrup, hash browns, scrambled eggs….and whiffs of bacon — oh, how I miss thee). Anything else after is, well, frosting on the cake. Yum!
ALAS, A DECEMBER 26 BIRTHDAY
If your birthday is also on December 26, as is mine, have a read at this article “The Pitfalls of a December 26 Birthday” from The Chicago Tribune HERE. It being an American paper, well, there is n mention of the Boxing Day bit, but I hear the author’s lament loud and clear.
IF DECEMBER 26 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY
*You are cautious, careful, imaginative, adventuresome, changeable, intuitive, determined, reliable, generous, loyal, honest, patient, organized and punctual.
*You are not a quitter. When you begin something — you finish. Challenges never deter you.
*Restlessness can be your downfall, as you can be very frustrating and even mischievous if you don’t have something to focus on.
*At times you can be defensive and rigid, but for the most part you are an enjoyable person who loves a good competition and a healthy adventure.
*Realistic and practical, others often turn to you for solid advice. Many actually lean on you, as you radiate strength.
*You have an ethical approach to life.
*You are brave with a little bit of a defiant rebellious streak and a strong dislike of any form of deception. While you are honest and loyal, you are also a “rebellious soul,” a non-conformist. You like to do things differently from other people yet you remain responsible and strong.
*You are responsible, serious and ambitious but also quite friendly with an offbeat sense of humour.
*With your slightly reserved emotions and high standards, you can be proud with a fragile ego and could suffer from stress if you take on too many responsibilities.
*Resourceful and prudent, you are a good judge of character and tend to like things your own way but you can be pessimistic and cautious too.
*Despite being fairly self-assured and disciplined, you may find it hard to admit a mistake. Try and learn to accept when you are wrong, and practice compromise.
*Your giving nature and your loyalty in friendship compensate for your slight coolness of emotion.
*Your intuitive judgment of others should be trusted and acted upon at all times.
*You are serious in your approach to life and to friendships but you are a friendly person.
*You have high standards that support your morals.
*You are reserved but proud. You have a good sense of humor but you find it difficult to laugh at your own mistakes.
*You are conscientious and smart.
