Here’s a fan video set to that track: “I can’t help myself!
Arden — a Juno-winning artist selling over 1.5 million records — is still in the midst of a remarkable career spanning over 22 years, dating back to her 1993 debut album, Time for Mercy which catapulted her into the Canadian music scene.A lot of the cab drivers I have had for my medical transportation have immigrated from Somalia, some arriving the same year I left Minnesota, telling me stories about how they excitedly called their relatives back home to tell them that powdered ice was falling from the sky (snow), and their relatives always asked the same question: There are also now large Hispanic communities settled especially around the cities where living wages might be available. But it’s not just race that determines where you land in the land of privilege – there’s a lot of “ands” that are the deciding factors. Your average white dude is the ultimate king of the food chain, born with the silver spoon in the mouth. If shitty things happen to you, the system isn’t against you in “pulling yourself up by your bootstraps.” You might want to feel sorry for yourselves, you might want to stomp and cry and try to convince us that you are being picked on and we should feel sorry for you, but I can’t. We can take it down a notch and look at white men who are physically handicapped by a chronic illness. On the tiers of privilege, white men who are in some way physically deemed “less valuable” by society are on a lower tier than ordinary white men.All of these groups are bringing their wonderful musicianship and dancing and food and willingness to endure countless hardships as strangers in a strange land because they know that turning back is not an option. Men are believed faster/more often than women when it comes to pain. I’m pretty sure my place is on the next tier down from that. But wait: knock me down a few more rungs, because I’m a white woman who is also physically disabled.“It was an amazing experience making what could be the finest record Jann has ever made…it just happened to be a Christmas record,” exclaims Rock.
