Oh My Gord!

BC Premier Gordon Campbell took our province by surprise this week announcing he is stepping down!

It's Gordie Howe Night tonight in Vancouver when the Kelowna Rockets pay a visit to play the Giants!

Kelowna's Gord Hotchkiss IS one of the most knowledgeable guys in North America when it comes to the search marketing industry. Last week, Gord's company, Enquiro, became part of Mediative, a Yellow Pages Group company. More on that on Gord's blog: Out of My Gord. Gord and his company were responsible for getting the Kelowna Rockets on the web years ago. His partner all these years has been Bill Barnes. I used to work with them both in radio. Bill has been the longtime PA voice of the Rockets. I mentioned that on a blog post last year:
A picture worth a thousand words? Thousands of calories...

I did not go trick or treating on Halloween. I spent time at Walmart scanning a bunch of family photos and music memorabilia including this one from a famous Gord:

Here is some classic Hip. It appears here that Gord is a Boston Bruins fan too...

    He wrote, "Save the Ralphs"? Oh my. That seems very odd somehow. Is there a metaphor somewhere? Hmm. Tragic. Perhaps hip as well. That hipness is dated now, though.

  2. What he wrote worked Shawn...I'm still around fifteen years later - while Gord Downie has lost his hair in the meantime - just like Kim Mitchell:)

    I plan to share plenty more Canadian music memories in the near future! Did you know the star of "Flashpoint" used to be in The Headstones?
    Here is something more recent by Hugh Dillon.
