Reliving my youth with The Police
Pre-order tickets for The Police concert at the Air Canada Centre went on sale today and Steve and I picked up a couple of tickets. My earliest memory of The Police is recording "Don't Stand So Close to Me" on the tape recorder of my mono Panasonic radio while pretending to be a radio DJ (I was 8 or 9 years old at the time and it was a lot of fun).

Tickets to the general public go on sale this Saturday at 10am, but people are already scalping similar tickets as mine for over $300 each on sites like StubHub. My initial try on TicketMaster netted me a pair of $225 tickets (the best seats available). The thought of scalping them did ever-so-briefly cross my mind, but then I remembered how much I hate scalpers, so I gave them up and just bought a cheaper ticket. These $225 tickets are now listing on eBay for around $1000 for a pair.

So... wrong...

Still rocking

Back on this day in 1973, School House Rock! debuted on ABC making learning pretty cool. I still fondly remember sitting on the couch and watching these educational short films on topics including grammar, science, and math on our old Zenith television set.

Gen Xers certainly remember shorts such as "Electricity, Electricity", "Conjunction Junction", and one of my favourites: "Lolly, Lolly, Lolly, Get Your Adverbs Here".
