This year, Arcade fire has won a Juno (like a Canadian Grammy), Brit award, the Polaris Music Prize, and a Grammy. When they won the Grammy for Album of the Year the internet exploded with "Arcade Fire? Who the Fuck is Arcade Fire?" If you haven't heard their Suburbs Album (which was the album of the year), it is definitely worth a listen (as are all of their albums) and their interactive "The Wilderness Downtown" video is pretty awesome. And if that didn't sell you, how about the fact that they sell a "Who the Fuck is Arcade Fire?" shirt at their concerts?

I'm hoping to get a run in today in Ottawa. I really hope it happens.
For the first time, I'm really thinking about how to approach this race on Sunday. My usual technique involves the Barney Stinson method of running- Step One: start running. There is no step two. But this time I'm trying to look at the route and figure out where I might feel good and bad and how I'm going to deal with that. I'm open to suggestions- so feel free to share your best race day positive mantras and thoughts with me!
Have I mentioned that my sister is having her baby in a short TWO WEEKS (or so...). That is just crazy talk I tell you. CRAZY TALK.
Ok, I think that is enough with the tired ramblings. So here are some questions for you-
Arcade Fire- yay or nay?
