A Little Canadiana for My Non-Canadian Visitors – The Log Driver’s Waltz

This very “Canadian” song crossed my thoughts today so I thought I’d share it, in its very “Canadian” video. It’s primarily for the majority of visitors to my site, who happen to be from places other than Canada. However, it’s also for my Canadian visitors who may well love it just as much as I do, or who may be hearing it for the first time.

It’s about as “Canadian”, as indefinable as that maybe, as any song ever has been for me. But you can “feel” it’s “Canadian” as you listen to it. It would also certainly rank among the most “Canadian things” for me.

Thank you for visiting. I hope you’ll come back for more good stuff in the future. And definitely come to visit Canada if you’ve never experienced this great country! Enjoy!

The Log Driver’s Waltz is a Canadian folk song written by Wade Hemsworth. The version you hear in the animated National Film Board (NFB) Canadian Vignette video above is the most well known version, performed by the McGarrigle Sisters, (the late) Kate and Anna, and the Mountain City Four.

290 X-men Movies Wallpapers (1024×768 pixels)

These wallpapers are from the X-men movies before X-men First Class, for which there aren’t a lot of graphics to work with yet. I’ll post those separately when there are more. Most of these wallpapers are also available in other sizes and purposes, if this isn’t the size you want your X-men wallpapers in or wish to get them for your other phones, monitors and for printing.

Of all the wallpaper sets I’ve created on this site, I have to say this has been my favourite. I love the X-men comics, and I thought the casting and costumes created for the movies’ characters were fabulous! The movies were spectacular, too, and I only wished they put one out each summer. Goodness knows they’ve got enough story lines to create that many for a long time… and it’s not like they don’t make a ton of money, either!

If you’re using Windows XP, you can learn how to create your own customized Windows XP screen saver with instructions via this link.

I also have instructions for how to use Windows 7′s nice rotating background feature to rotate many of these wallpapers on your computer if you didn’t know how to enable it.

I hope you enjoy these wallpapers. I have more for other monitor sizes coming by the end of November if this or the widescreen sizes below aren’t what you were looking for.
