Crazy legs middle aged white man

There is this video that is up on YouTube entitled “Crazy legs middle aged white man”. It’s a video of my dad (Francis) dancing onstage during a Michael Jackson tribute medley. This medley was part of British R&B singer Estelle’s concert on the main stage at this year’s (the 2009) Ottawa Bluesfest on Sunday July 12. How it all came about? Well Estelle, she had just finished dancing with some invited guests form the audience and was about to launch into a Michael Jackson tribute medley when my dad yelled pick me or something to that effect. And before anyone new it he had been invited up and was quickly climbing on stage to shake his thing with her dancers. He danced along with the dancers during the whole Jackson tribute medley number. Then he made his excite off of the stage and back into the audience. He was cheered on be his favourite oldest son (me) and some of his Bluesfest acquaintances. It was a time to remember.


Rick Mercer on Bullying In Schools

I was glad to here that Rick Mercer the prominent Canadian comedian of 22 Minutes fame did a rant about bullying on his show Rick Mercer Report. To bad I mist seeing it on his show, as I was out enjoying my church’s monthly Arts Night. But thanks to the power of YouTub and its contributors I have now seen it and am pleased to be able to share it with you here.

“Open Doors” – a film on bullying

So this evening I was checking out YouTube to see what was on they’re about bullying. And as I was coming to the end of the bullying related content I came across this video and it’s called “Open Doors”. In my opinion it dos a good job of showing what physical bullying is like including the emotional side affects of it. So do have a look.

“Nobody Died” – a song about bullying

My favourite music group The Wilkinsons do a song called “Nobody Died” on their latest album Home. The reason I bring this up is it deals with the subject of school bullying in what I feel is quite an honest way. And so dos the accompanying music video, to which I think is really worth seeing. So here is the video for The Wilkinsons, Nobody Died.

So what do you think? Well I hope by me, The Wilkinsons and others addressing what in my opinion is one of the most serious issues of our time in frank and honest ways we might even find better ways of dealing with it.
