YOU GUYS! Canada is making a mix tape for Barack Obama! The project is being called 49 Songs from North of the 49th Parallel. By going to CBC Radio's website you can help vote on the 49 songs from a list of 100.

It's not clear if you have to prove that you are Canadian on the site by some sort of passport verification or making an iced-hockey wrist shot, but it's open til tomorrow, so go for it.

There's no Broken Social Scene on that ballot, so it's really not even worth voting. However, it remains a very cute gesture by our northern neighbors.

There is no BSS on the ballot but whatever, Rush is on there. Geddy Lee, best bass player ever!

Well, you've clearly identified yourself as not Canadian (intentionally maybe?) by referring to their national pastime as "iced hockey." Just to clarify: it's not hockey cooled by ice, as in "iced tea"; rather, it's hockey played on an ice surface (as in, "ice dancing").

I think Iced Hockey is a Native American term. You know, like Iced Dancing.
