Doohan served with the Canadian Army, and lost the middle finger of his right hand when he was shot at Normandy. 

He did his best to conceal the missing finger during his acting career, but sometimes tribbles happen.

Although technically he was not a member of the Royal Canadian Air Force, he was once labelled the “craziest pilot in the Canadian Air Force” due to things like slaloming a plane between mountainside telegraph poles just to prove it could be done (which earned him serious reprimand).

song-a-day #165

It’s weird when a band from the other side of the world inadvertently introduces you to a band from your hometown (through a cover). I have to thank Nardwuar for that, too (for telling me who the band actually was). Guy’s a bloody…encyclopedia. I don’t even know. He seems to know more about artists than the artists themselves do. And there doesn’t seem to be anybody he doesn’t know about.

It’s kinda funny, seems one of the guys went on from being in a punk band to becoming a lawyer and then politician. Trouble maker with a future. You can do a hell of a lot more damage in the system than outside of it. Eh heh, SLC Punk!

Calgary punk!
