Today's guest: The CBC Radio 3 Singers (pictured above)

Happy Easter Monday, everyone--how has your long weekend been so far? I imagine you're recovering from a few extra days of debauchery....er....or am I projecting here?

So here's the thing I'm wondering: other than getting together with friends and having a few drinks, going to see a live show or maybe eating a few too many chocolate cream-filled eggs, what else do people do on the Easter long weekend?

A quick search of "Easter Traditions" on Wikipedia reveals a number of interesting rituals. An Easter "spanking" for instance. Hmmm.

Well, maybe not. So.....

WHAT ARE YOUR EASTER TRADITIONS?

Easter egg hunt? Big family dinner? Heading to the cabin by the lake? Any Easter musical traditions like singing songs from Jesus Christ Superstar perhaps? 

Post your traditions here on the blog. I'll actually be on tour with the CBC Radio 3 Singers as you're listening to this and so not "live" for this show, but I look forward to reading your comments.

I remember when I was a kid my parents would place easter eggs along a string that ran through the house so I could just follow the string. They must not have though I was smart enough to find the eggs on my own... they were probably right.

@hedgeway - curious, where abouts are you from that you'd play hockey in Tata? I played there too...I wonder if we ever played each other?!?!  I grew up in Truro (or Tdot-NS as it was sometimes refferred to)... also spent a lot of time up in Brule, the 'Gash (Malagash)... North Shore in general. Favourite coast in Scotia by far.

Anyway, sorry... my mouth is watering for some good seafood! Kind of hard to find on the Prairies!

@hedgeway My parent hid them when we were little, although they would hid a lot of them so we usually didn't get tehm all that day. We  would keep finding random bits of chocolate months later, eventually my parents decided against hiding them and just tossed bags of chocolate at us.

@hedgeway - CRAZY. Small world... I hated playing in Debert (the Dirty Deberties!) their rink was soooo cold! In retrospect though, I like how their zamboni was a jerry-rigged tractor and they had heaters hanging above the stands to help try and keep you warm.

Also @hedgeway - if I didn't get too many penalties while playing in Debert I get to hit up som eTimbits at the Debert Timmies which is the trucker's Tim's so you know it's good!

@ Fiasco22 Re. #4

, Ironically, I've had the opposite problem. Since I've become a parent, eating rabbit, duck and lamb are tricky propositions. I grew up on these dishes, but my daughter gets upset about the idea of eating them. Like a duck is any different than a chicken...

@steph - to me, it almost sounds like the song is being done by a Darkness cover band but they can't hit those high notes so they giv'r with their own spin on it... kind of ridiculous but for whatever reason, everytime I hear it, I think that.

There's also that boxer the horse song which I think is something off Weezer's Pinkerton every single time it starts.

In conclusion, I'm not a good consultant on song or band names/titles. And I'm a bit "in the clouds" as they say.

@flannel tom - Heh! Don't worry about it! I'm the worst when it comes to identifying bands/songs I like. My coworker and I have conversations all the time that go something like this:

Me: "Hey, what's this song again?"

Nikki: "Oh you know.. it's that band that does the cool song we like to run to"

Me: "Braids!?"

Nikki: "Nooooo the other one! Sounds like old school Rock but it's not old school..."

And so on and so forth. Hahah! 

I can't think of which Boxer the Horse song you're thinking of but I wanna know! Let me know next time you hear it if we're both here! :)

Hi Everybody. Too bad Grant is not here, but happy to hear Tariq's special blend of music for a change.

We don't have any easter traditions, the kids are both out of the house on their own. But we did go for a bike ride on the tandem yesterday. GO Train to Exhibition, pedal to Harbourfront and then ferry to Toronto Island for a windy but enjoyable picnic on the beach. We managed to kill a bottle of wine, which we haven't done in awhile.

Easter Tradition:  a giant ham.  As my sister's boyfriend so eloquently put it:  "You can never have too much pig."

@axis re: foods:  When my daughter was 3, my husband told her (unknown to me) that lamb meat was a type of fish, so that she would eat it.  Next time we served lamb, she looks at me suspiciously and says "Is this lamb, or fish-lamb?"

I was taking the skytrain from work last week, and some... not homeless, because he mentioned he lived with his mom, but some guy who looked homeless and REEKED of cigarettes randomly decided that I, with my headphones on, was a good person to start a conversation with. In the span of this conversation, he told me he was a big fan of music, and had a lot of random music knowledge, and that his favourite band was Nickelback. Despite the flack he gets from his friends about it.

On the plus side, when he asked me who I was listening to and I said Joel Plaskett, he knew him & the Emergency.

the strange thing is, I didn't always hate Nickelback. I was never a "fan", but someone gave me their first (or second?) album as a gift, and around the time they were breaking through in Vancouver, they were so different than everything else on the radio (this was around 2001, and i hadn't gotten too much into "indie" musics)

I didn't mind the album, but it was right before they got huge, and I think that success went right to their heads (Chad was already a d-bag) and they just decided to pump out the same crap, while making it even more base-common demoninator. "More songs about banging chicks and blowjobs, gents! The bros love that!"

Looking back, I think I was only okay with the album because it wasn't boy bands. Turns out it was just as offensive, for different reasons.

So this was the first day I've really bothered to post on here. I've lurked for a while but never really said anything at all. Y'all were so nice and inviting though :D.

I think post #123 should win a Feist prize. Thoughts?

Speaking of Feist, the cover art for that record store day split she is doing with mastadon is frightening

The Easter bunny almost missed our house this weekend. He was busy watching Transformers: Dark of the Moon on Netflix the night before, and was up like a shot at 8:00 AM to hide chocolate eggs. fortunately, the kids had been up late on account of it being a weekend so he didn't get caught in the act

Dark of the Moon, by the way, is waaay over the top. I know, it's a movie series about intelligent machine-robot things that can change shape, so it's already out there, but this movie is really over the top. I don't know if they're planning a 4th, but I'm not quite sure how they'll out-do this one for sheer crazy explosions and sinister robotic plot twists

@krib, did you enjoy the Transformers movie? Netflix thinks I'll hate it, and it's probably right... although I do like the occasional over-the-top flick.

Nope. We definitely heard this last week.

I watched the pilot episodes of Charlie's Angels and Dilbert.

Charlie's Angels wasn't as bad as I expected. Funky music. Action sequences were horrible.

Loved Dilbert.

Mr.FF

If you have seen the previous movies and don't mind them, then you'll probably like this one. I've noticed that they keep trying to make the plots for succeeding movies more intricate, with twists and surprises. It starts to wear a little thin in this movie
