Noam Bierstone, when, at age 18, he won the Canadian Music Awards, age 19 - 30 category in keyboard percussion. Yes, he's that good. I, for one, had no idea that a xylophone could actually be played like that, and I'm still in awe. Check out his videos, and prepare to be amazed.
Swinkin's poem, The Children of Fishermen, winner of the University of Toronto's Alumni Short Story and Poetry Contest. This week, we got an email -- you never know who is reading this Blog! An agent for a publishing company found her poem on the Bondi Resort Blog, and wants to include it in a new series of contemporary Canadian literature for high school students. We were more than happy to pass the request along to Emily, and are hoping it all works out.
