  1. Nothing new here. This term has been around for a long long time. Separatism is a term mostly used by english-speaking people. 'cause it's always been scarier than sovereigntist or independantist. And I would like to answer your other post, but my english knowledge is a little bit too poor. Would be simpler if I could express myself in French. But then again, I think that don't speak it nor read it.
  2. Well, I would like to see Quebec be independant one of these days just like I would love to see Canada being independant from Great- Britain. Federalism has never worked. Mainly because each provinces have its own history, its own culture, etc. Someone from Nova-Scotia doesn't think like someone from B.C. They don't share the same 'reality'. And, technically speaking, yes, I am Canadian. Last time I check I was living in Montreal! But in the bottom of my heart, Quebec is my country. I was speaking the other day with a friend of mine who's from New-Brunswick and he told me that, for him, Acady was his country. I'm sure you're proud to be Canadian and I know there's a lot to be proud of, I respect that, but my heart, my conscience and my convictions tells me that my real country is Quebec. Why would a Lady from another country, another Nation be my Queen? I'm French, so why a British monarch should reign over me? In other words, I'm a republican who's fighting to see one day, the Republic of Quebec. Simple as that. Question of convictions.
  3. I'm not sure if I understand your point of view correctly. Are you a monarchist? 'cause my post was about that. I don't dislike the English people, far from it. I dislike their Crown. What it has done to my people, through History. They tried to forbid our culture, our religion, our tongue, etc. Sure, that was years ago, but they never gave any excuses at all. I think some of my Scots and Irish brothers and sisters will understand what i'm saying. I'd love to be proud of being Canadian. But it is a immense and beautiful country that is not mine.
  4. T'was a very clean and pacifist protest. We have nothing against Charles. Only against what he represent. Against something that we, "French-Canadians", never wanted. That was force down our throats. It's about time we get rid of this archaic thing that is the Crown. We're not in 1558 anymore. Would be better for us all with a Republic of Canada. Even though I'm an Independandist.
  5. The man got some nerves to come back in Montreal...
  6. My vote goes to That's The Way. Because of the pedal steel guitar. It makes me weeps. Honorable mentions to Since' and The Rain Song.
  7. In my Sanctuary, waiting on a friend who went p*ssing, waiting to go out and drink like Rockstars! Osibisa's first record was playing on the turntable which explain my ecstatic facies.
  8. Maybe 4 years ago... Notice the "60s" stripped pants!
  9. FANTASTIC! Simply fantastic news... Thank you Jahfin for the news!
  10. My ancestors were French. On both sides. I might have, somewhere down the line, some Native American and Irish blood.
  11. Well, I learned that the girl who's 'in my sight' has a fuck-friend. I know it is none of my business but, Hell! It got me angry... Sorry for being vulgar.
  12. Vampire? Awright, thank you Mister. It answered my question pretty well!!
  13. It's not a song but a classical piece from Master J.S. Bach. the Little Fugue in G minor, BWV 578. Simply mindblowing. Here's for you, played on organ by the immense talent of Tom Koopman.
  14. Very impressive collection you got there, Ev. I'm curious about your classical. I got a Takamine myself and it looks really like yours. Which model is it? I have the EG124C.
  15. I Promise Not To Come in Your Mouth - Frank Zappa Sorry 'bout that one!
  16. You're Going To Lose That Girl - The Beatles
  17. Funeral For a friend (Love Lies Bleeding) - Elton John
  18. Born Under a Bad Sign - Albert King
  19. I'll maintain my choices to the Rock Circus. Jazz would be another thing... Axemen: 1. Hendrix 2. Zappa 3. McLaughlin 4. Page 5. Beck Drummers: 1. Moonie (for many personal reasons!) 2. Bonzo 3. Terry Bozzio 4. Mitch Mitchell 5. Ginger Baker
  20. My friend was at the game and he told me that is was mostly a bunch of 1,500 drunken fuckers in the Molson Export section that were booing. It's always some young bastards trying to be cool that will boo the anthem. And they're not all French. there's a lot of anglophones, too. We've lost... so what... How Buffalo's doing, so far??
